inner outer

The transparent outer shell is designed to break down in your stomach, releasing fructooligosaccharides (FOS) fibre, which act as food for the live bacteria. It also contains Vitamin D3, Biotin and Zinc, all of which have been included for their role in supporting a healthy gut.


Not visible to the naked eye, within the green inner capsule are 50 billion live bacteria. Protected by the outer shell as it makes its way through the stomach, this inner capsule is able to continue through the gastro-intestinal tract, breaking down in the intestines and releasing the live cultures into your gut microbiome.

Is the synbiotic duo cap a probiotic?
down arrow

The capsule contains live bacteria, therefore it can be considered a probiotic. It also contains fructooligosaccharides (FOS) which can be considered prebiotics. However, we refrain from using such terms as UK Law prevents this, seeing our products as food supplements to which no health claims can be associated.

How long do I need to take the synbiotic duo cap for?
down arrow

We recommend taking one capsule a day for a minimum of 3 months. This is how long your microbiome needs to adjust to the new bacteria, as also recommended by the British Society of Gastroenterology to anyone trying a new bacterial product.

Can I take other supplements alongside this for my gut or is Epetōme enough?
down arrow

The synbiotic duo cap has been designed to provide one potent dosage of 50 billion live bacteria in one capsule, from 11 unique strains, alongside other vitamins and minerals that support overall gut health. Therefore as far as live bacteria supplements go, our synbiotic duo cap. should be enough.

What are the active ingredients in the synbiotic duo cap?
down arrow

Our capsule combines live bacteria with other vitamins and minerals for added digestive value. See the full nutritional information table for more information:

What are the active ingredients in the synbiotic duo cap?
Are there any side effects from taking the synbiotic duo cap?
down arrow

Our gut microbiome is as unique as our fingerprint, therefore your experience with our products will be unique to you. Whilst there should be no adverse effects, some people have reported experiencing an upset stomach, gas, diarrhea, or bloating. Those symptoms usually go away after your body gets used to the bacteria in the synbiotic duo cap (usually within 1-4 weeks). However, if the problem persists, please stop taking immediately and consult your GP.

Other than my gut, will I find any other benefits to taking Epetōme?
down arrow

Epetōme is officially classed as a food supplement by UK law, and therefore we cannot legally claim specific health benefits ourselves. We encourage you to do your research.

Our Research Library contains a whole host of studies conducted on the ingredients within our capsule.


ALL ANSWERS right caret
What exactly is your microbiome and why is it important?
What exactly is your microbiome? It's a complex community of over 38 trillion microorganisms living in and on your body. Interestingly, there are more microbes than there are human cells in your body. So it is important that we look at our microbiome, as it affects everything from digestion to the immune system, hormones, skin health, and mental well-being. Each of these connections is vital. For instance, the gut-brain axis can influence mood and cognitive function, while gut microbes can impact skin health, digestion efficiency, immunity, and hormonal balance.
I have heard “prebiotic” and “probiotic” foods are good for my gut. Is this true and what does this mean?
Any food that feeds our gut microbes we call a prebiotic. Our microbiome is uniquely positioned to metabolise a wide range of fibres, most of which we can't even break down, making fibre one of the primary prebiotics that feeds and encourages a diverse microbiome. High-fiber foods include lots of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, nuts, and seeds. These foods help our beneficial gut bacteria to thrive and maintain a healthy balance. Apart from fibre-rich foods, polyphenols also act as prebiotics. Polyphenols are compounds found in a wide range of foods, especially in colourful fruits and vegetables like berries, nuts, and seeds, as well as in green tea and even dark chocolate. Probiotic foods, on the other hand, contain live beneficial bacteria. Think of yoghurt, kefir, and fermented foods like sauerkraut. They add to the diversity of microbes in our gut.
When is it appropriate to take a supplement for gut health?
While a balanced diet is critical to good health, there are times when supplements can play a vital role in maintaining gut health. Let's explore why? It's important to understand how sensitive our gut microbiome is to various lifestyle factors. Our daily choices – what we eat, our stress levels, sleep patterns, and even our physical activity – can significantly impact the balance of our gut. Supplements can fill nutritional gaps, especially in today's fast-paced world, where eating a perfect diet is only sometimes feasible. They can support our digestive health and ensure we have everything to function optimally.
What is Epetōme’s synbiotic duo cap?
Our synbiotic duo cap is a blend of science and nature, meticulously formulated for optimal gut health. Let's explore its unique bacterial composition. Among the 11 strains, we're proud to include Lactobacillus acidophilus NCFM, the world's most researched strain of acidophilus, especially trialled for IBS-related pain & bloating. There are over 45 clinical trials on this strain. Each strain in our formulation is chosen for its unique properties, as suggested in the latest scientific research. Our capsule boasts 50 billion colony-forming units, ensuring a potent dose of these beneficial bacteria. Once released, the FOS in the liquid part of the capsule acts as food for the live bacteria and supports our natural microbiome, promoting a synergistic effect for gut health. We've also included Vitamin D, Biotin, and Zinc. Vitamin D is crucial for gut barrier integrity, Biotin supports mucosal health, and Zinc plays a vital role in immune function. D-Biotin, commonly known as Biotin, is vital for maintaining mucosal health, which is an integral part of a healthy gut. Maintaining mucosal integrity helps support the gut's natural barrier and its functions. Zinc contributes to the normal function of the immune system. A well-functioning immune system is crucial for gut health, as much of our immune system is in the gut.We also include Vitamin D3 from a plant source. Vitamin D contributes to the normal function of the immune system and the maintenance of normal muscle function. It plays a role in cell division, which is essential for maintaining the integrity of the gut lining. These ingredients – D-biotin, Zinc and Vitamin D3 – have been chosen not just for their individual benefits but for how they synergistically support overall gut health. This is the essence of our synbiotic duo cap, aligning with our commitment to provide scientifically validated and effective nutrition solutions.
What is unique about this capsule?
The synbiotic duo cap consists of an outer shell and an inner core. This unique structure is designed with precision in mind, to ensure optimised delivery within the gastrointestinal tract. First, the outer shell breaks down in the stomach, releasing Fructooligosaccharides, or FOS, a type of fibre that acts as fuel for the live cultures within the capsule. The inner core houses 50 billion live bacteria. Our technology ensures these beneficial bacteria are protected until they reach the gut, where they can be most effective. This targeted delivery is a cornerstone of our approach. The Duo Cap is 30 times more effective than standard capsules in ensuring the friendly bacteria reach the gut alive. This effectiveness is proven using SHIME testing.
What can I expect from taking the synbiotic duo cap?
Our carefully designed supplements can lead to various changes in your digestive system over time. We only use high-quality live cultures backed by credible science in state-of-the-art encapsulation to bring you a product you can trust. In the first few days, your body starts getting acquainted with these new guests. It's a time of gentle adjustment. I encourage you to allow your body to get used to the shift. Over the first month, you might notice changes in your digestive routine. It's your body naturally responding to your diet. By 3 months in, your body will adapt and find tempo and balance. Epetome is best taken on an ongoing basis as part of a daily health regime, making sustainable gut health habits an effortless part of your daily routine. Remember, your journey is as unique as you are. It's about consistently nourishing the friendly bacteria in our guts regularly.
