PurePharma SB3 Synbiotics consists of a blend of prebiotics, probiotics and vitamin C to keep your body in balance. SB3 is a distinctive formula based on two probiotic strains, both scientifically proven.
Probiotics are the good kind of live bacteria that serves as the body’s inner line defense system. By fighting bad bacteria, probiotic bacteria support your immune defence mechanism and digestive system.
Prebiotics are ingestible fibres that serve as food for probiotics, which allows them to thrive and grow in the gut. When used together, prebiotics and probiotics form a synbiotic.
PurePharma SB3 also contains 200mg of vitamin C that works as an antioxidant to maintain the body from the daily wear and tear.
The product is gluten free and contains no artificial additives, nuts, GMO and add sugar.

HelloSkin’s experts have not found any clinical data on the use of PurePharma SB3 Synbiotics in people with psoriasis.
The term synbiotics basically refers to a combination of probiotics and prebiotics, which simplistically put, are bacteria with expected health promoting properties and something these bacteria can feed on, respectively. As this is a very new line of research, only one study was detected that has tested how consumption of a probiotic bacteria affected people with psoriasis (1).
Unfortunately the researchers did not assess the clinical impact on psoriasis, but rather the levels of inflammatory mediators in the blood stream, which showed only a modest reduction following the consumption of the probiotic bacteria for 6-8 weeks.
In recent years it has become clear that the bacteria residing within our gut, collectively called the microbiota, are important for our health. As such, a well-balanced gut microbiota is considered to promote our well-being (2). For instance, the healthy gut microbiota helps provide a barrier against intruding pathogens, produces certain vitamins and helps maintaining a healthy and balanced immune system (3).
On the other hand, disturbances and loss of diversity in the gut microbiota is associated with inflammatory bowel diseases (4), but may actually extend beyond the gut to a number of lifestyle related diseases (5).
Some suggest that the microbiota may even act as a disease intermediate, and many show interest in how to therapeutically manipulate this in a health-promoting manner. Probiotics may therefore be an attractive way to help restore or perhaps prevent imbalances in the gut microbiota, which subsequently may affect our health and well-being.
