When it comes to probiotics, this isn’t my first rodeo. As someone who’s dealt with acne for much of my teenage and adult life—sigh—I was exposed to the concept of the microbiome pretty early through extensive research in an attempt to clear my stubborn skin. News flash: Your microbiome is connected to way more than just your immune system or digestive tract. It’s also been linked to skin, heart and even brain health.
Since my epiphany, I’ve experimented with everything from probiotic capsules to powders to a strange phase where I was obsessed with kefir milk. Yep, I’ve tested the whole shelf of ’em. But nothing really stuck. Meaning I had yet to find a brand that stood out from the rest. So when Seed introduced me to its Daily Synbiotic, I thought, Heck, why not? Did I find my probiotic soul mate? Read on for my gut reaction (pun very much intended), plus answers to a few more questions.
