What does the research say?
The strains in Symprove appear to survive stomach acid but this was shown in an animal model and not humans
A randomized, controlled trial showed that Symprove may be helpful for symptoms of IBS (abdominal pain and bowel habit)
A randomized, controlled trial showed that Symprove may be helpful for symptoms of uncomplicated diverticular disease (constipation, diarrhoea, and back pain)
A randomized, controlled trial showed that Symprove may be helpful for ulcerative colitis, but not Crohn’s disease (reduced intestinal inflammation in ulcerative colitis only)
