Symprove is a water-based liquid supplement that contains four strains of live and active bacteria: L. rhamnosus, E. faecium, L. acidophilus, and L. plantarum. A healthy gut would normally contain all four of these bacteria. However, modern lifestyles and environmental influences mean more people are lacking these vital bacteria from their guts.
Symprove reintroduces these bacteria to the digestive system and helps to restore the gut’s natural balance. Independent clinical trials have proven that Symprove is effective in reducing symptoms for people with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) ulcerative colitis and diverticular disease (DD). It is one of the few non-dairy live bacteria liquid formulations on the market.

Foundation Training is a movement practice, very different from yoga and Pilates, which specifically counteracts the negative effects of our modern, heavily seated lifestyles.

Foundation Training teaches us how to use our bodies properly to hold good postures and move in correct patterns. By doing so this rebalances our muscular system and realigns our skeleton to keep us strong and pain free throughout our lives. Our aim at Foundation Training Instructors Scotland is to teach you the tools to take control of your pain and help you too feel truly confident in your body’s ability to withstand the riggers of modern life.
