5 signs of an imbalanced gut flora

It’s a delicate balance that needs to be maintained in the gut flora. There should be a wide range of species, and the good bacteria needs to be in the majority for the gut flora to do its job. However, our modern lifestyle doesn’t create the best conditions for our gut flora to stay in top shape. Low fibre diets, high amounts of stress, and a sedentary lifestyle, etc., can all contribute to the depletion of the gut flora. But how do you actually know if your gut flora is out of balance? And more importantly, what can you do about it?

5 Signs of an imbalanced gut flora 

Sign 1: Your stomach is quite sensitive (and often bloated)

The telltale sign that the gut flora is not in tip-top shape is a variety of stomach problems, such as bloating, cramps, diarrhoea and constipation. The stomach can also become bloated and gassy, often when having a meal or a few hours after eating when digestion has kicked into gear. 

Sign 2: You frequently feel tired and sleep poorly

When the gut and digestive system are not functioning properly, it uses a lot of energy and can make you feel tired, especially after eating. Additionally, the hormone serotonin (which affects mood and sleep among other things), is produced in the gut. Any disruption to the gut flora can therefore affect serotonin production and can, for example, disturb our sleep. A lack of variety in gut flora species has also been shown to be linked to conditions such as chronic fatigue syndrome (Source). 

Sign 3: Your skin is irritated or you have eczema

Poor gut health has been linked to a variety of skin conditions including acne and eczema. Research suggests that inflammation is the likely culprit in this scenario. When the gut flora gets out of balance due to things like prolonged stress or a course of antibiotics, the proportion of inflammation-promoting bad bacteria increases, which can in turn cause skin problems (Source).


The starting point of good health is in the gut

Synbiotic15 is the best Swedish supplement to support and boost your gut health. One daily dose contains:

 15 billion lactic acid bacteria
4 patented bacterial strains
4 grams of gluten-free dietary fibres


Sign 4: Your mood can suffer

When your gut is not functioning properly, it is obviously difficult not to let your mood be affected. The reason behind this may actually be more physiological in nature than you might think. The gut and brain are interconnected and in constant communication via the vagus nerve, which extends from the brain stem down to the digestive system. Several of the hormones and neurotransmitters that regulate our mood are also produced in the gut. 

Sign 5: You get sick often

Around 70% of the body’s immune system is in the gut. Many researchers therefore believe that a disruption in the balance of the gut flora may be linked to a weakened immune system and increased susceptibility to infection. Autoimmune diseases, where the immune system is overactive and the body attacks and damages its own tissues, have also been linked to gut health. (Source). 

What to do about an imbalanced gut flora? 

If you discover that you may have an imbalance in your gut flora (check out Stig’s three gut health tests), unfortunately, there are no shortcuts. A healthy lifestyle is the key to a healthy and well-functioning body – including healthy gut flora. A healthy lifestyle should therefore include: 

  • Daily exercise – at least 30 minutes, 5 times a week where your breathing and heart rate increase 
  • A healthy, fibre-rich diet – strive to eat real food in a diet based on unprocessed, pure foods, with a high proportion of plant foods (vegetables, fruits, legumes, nuts, seeds) 
  • Think about HOW you eat – chew thoroughly and try to eat more slowly to aid digestion. For example, try to put your fork or spoon down in between bites. 
  • Drink plenty of water – among other things, water is needed to keep the intestinal mucosa in good condition and to help the body handle the fibre in the diet. 1.5-2 l of water a day is a good general guideline; if it is hot or if you sweat a lot, you will need to drink more. 
  • Get out in nature more – good bacteria are all around us in the air, in the soil and on plants, for example. Spending time outdoors can also help reduce stress (see the next item). 
  • Lower your stress level – try meditation, walks, yoga, reduce your intake of caffeine or spend time with friends and family. 
  • Supplement the good bacteria and fibre – Good bacteria and fibre can be obtained both through your diet and by taking dietary supplements. These can help push you in the right direction towards a healthier lifestyle. 
  • Sleep regularly – a lack of sleep can adversely affect gut health and can also have a number of other negative effects on your body and your mood. The amount of sleep you need varies from person to person, but between 7-8 hours is a good general guideline.

What our customers say


I started with Synbiotic15 only hoping to improve my gut health and was surprised my skin got better. It’s been a drastic improvement – my eczema on my back, arms and cheeks are almost gone. And I don’t get flare ups anymore. I also feel less bloated / uncomfortable. Am Super happy with it.

Magdeline Yeo



I needed help in managing stomach issues - I went for something that was proven, 100% natural and would strengthen my immunity, gut flora and help settle my stomach with prebiotics and probiotics. Synbiotic15 has been amazing, so much so, that it will now be a part of my daily routine no matter what.

Natalie Dau

Professional athlete, mum and media personality


I probably felt bloated 3-4 times a week and it was a big issue for me. Yet I couldn’t figure out what exactly triggered it or how to stop it. Taking Synbiotic15 makes me feel good. I can really feel the difference and I don’t get bloated. Which is huge for me! It gives me more confidence and more comfort.”

Claire Jedrek

Presenter, race driver and mum


Before taking synbiotic15, I suffered from a painful, bloated abdomen (as if 9 months pregnant). I visited several doctors, but the cause was unclear. A food intolerance test revealed so many nutrients to which I reacted badly, it was impossible to stick to. A friend suggested Synbiotic15. Her experience was convincing, so I tried, and with effect! I suffer significantly less from bloating. I was planning to try it once, but because of the super results I'm extending it. If you have gut problems, I can definitely recommend this.

As a nutritionist – when I recommend a supplement, it’s important that the quality is as close as possible to what you can get from nature. For me, Synbiotic15 fits those criteria. After clients started with Synbiotic15, one of the first things they noticed is improved digestion and more energy. The best way to start any health journey.

Elika Tasker

Taking Synbiotic15 has honestly been amazing. My tummy feels good after having it, I’m less bloated and my energy is higher. It really makes a difference!

Shireena Shroff Manchharam

It’s such a big difference since taking Synbiotic15. My body feels good, my energy levels are high, and I somehow feel lighter. This is great, I feel awesome.

Paul Foster

Host, model, and actor


I tried Synbiotic15 for two months and it’s when you stop that you really feel the difference. The probiotics calm your internals and everything becomes more consistent; I think it helps the bloating too. It’s not an instant fix but a good addition to supplements for feeling better all round, and a help with IBS.

Rebecca Bisset

When you take care of your gut, you’ll get so much more energy. And while you don’t need a supplement – Synbiotic15 helps to kickstart your progress and supports the lifestyle changes you make.

Selina Wirz

Nutritionist & Health Coach


My stomach problems have improved enormously after using synbiotic. I am very satisfied!
I have many allergies which have a severe reaction to my bowel movements. By taking supersymbiotic my bowel movements are much smoother, very happy.
