Symbiotics vs. Probiotics - What's the Difference?

Why to Choose Your Flora Symbiotics Over Probiotics

Recent evidence recognizes the many influencing factors that are essential in managing a healthy and optimal gut flora that goes way beyond just the microbes that inhabit it. The environment in which the microbes reside is now the focus of research. It is the environment which dictates the nature within. In other words, the whole of an ecosystem will always be more powerful than the sum of its inhabitants.

“Standard probiotics are rapidly becoming an inappropriate and dysfunctional approach to supporting your gut flora – with limited actions and ability.”

They are, after all, just capsules of bacterial cells. Although prebiotics, which feed the bacterial cells, are getting more attention lately, they too, only provide part of the solution.

Symbiotics, as opposed to probiotics, are a fermented, whole food living culture that provides everything needed to support the gut environment including the survival and colonization of the microbes, the diversity of microbes, highly bio-available digestive nutrients, a healthy terrain and much more that support your flora. They are natural, safe, and as a source of unique nourishment, go way beyond a capsule full of bacterial cells.

 Your Floral Symbiotic Standard Probiotics
Provides a complete living ecosystem of nutrients, enzymes and microflora.
Provides just a concentration of bacterial cells grown on a weak medium which they are then separated from.
35 naturally evolved strains of micro-organisms that have evolved together as a symbiosis during fermentation. A few synthetically grown strains that are combined as a powder without knowing how the microbes respond to each other or their new environment – you.
Provides all the necessary colonizing factors to allow the micro-organisms to survive and thrive.
Contains no colonizing factors whatsoever.
Rich in digestive nutrients to encourage all the contributing factors for a healthy gut flora.
All nutrition is removed in a probiotic since it’s separated from the medium. Rarely is anything added.
Contains enzymes and peptides that provide an essential support to the gut flora and its terrain.
No enzymes or peptides as these are destroyed during processing.
Encourages and supports your unique gut ecology and its needs on many levels.
A “bomb” approach designed to dictate your gut flora based on providing significantly large numbers.
Encourages microbial diversity as a fermented whole food ecosystem.
Can limit your microbial diversity by providing dominating numbers of just a few species that can limit other important but delicate species
Suitable for vegans.
Few probiotics are suitable for vegans.
