The Symprove story

Symprove Ltd was born in 2002, founded in the belief that recovering and maintaining a healthy gut balance can help you live a fuller life. We hold that same belief today, but have stayed curious in the years since, dedicated to researching the microbiome and developing the Symprove formula.


    Unhappy with existing animal feed, farmer and Symprove Ltd founder Barry Smith developed his own feed based on germinated grains - a form of probiotic. After witnessing the impact of this on his animals, Barry was encouraged to take the technology to people. The seeds of Symprove were sown.


    Based around a barley, a natural grain which has undergone fermentation, Symprove (known as Multigerm at the time) becomes available on the agricultural market and is found to have a positive effect on a range of animals. Two leading vets encourage its use in humans.


    Backed with funding for clinical research into human health and food supplements, the formula is refined for human use and Symprove was born.


    Following a period of research and clinical studies, Symprove is launched as a food supplement, available to the public for the first time.


    Symprove’s production and bottling facilities in Farnham, Surrey – where every bottle of Symprove has ever been made - are upgraded to meet growing demand.


    Research is undertaken by the University College of London. They find that Symprove withstands all three phases of their testing – arrival in the gut, survival and the ability to thrive.


    Using a Simulator of the Human Intestinal Microbioal Ecosystem (SHIME), research confirms the live bacteria in Symprove is able to arrive, survive and thrive in the gut, as well as providing greater insight into how Symprove is able to influence and support the gut microbiome.

Our philosophy

At Symprove we believe that living your best, feeling your best and looking your best starts from within. Living well means eating well, taking some exercise, and also enjoying good gut health. Research shows that these three things are inter-linked, and all have a massive impact on our wellbeing. And so if you live well, you should feel well, and if you feel well you will look well. This is what we mean by Inside out thinking.
