In this review, we are going to take a closer look at the Aava Labs Probiotic supplement to see if it is going to have any effect on your digestive and overall health, or whether you’re better off increasing the good bacteria in your body through diet alone.
Aava labs Probiotics are a Finnish produced probiotic supplement that claims to improve overall health by helping to increase the amount of healthy gut bacteria. It is in capsule form, with a ‘patented delivery system’ – although what this system entails is unclear, and it is designed to be taken once or twice a day, depending on your requirements. It also contains zinc, to help improve cognitive function, maintenance of bones, and immune function.
Probiotics, as a whole, do not cause much in the way of serious side effects in healthy individuals. In the first few days of taking them, some users might experience diarrhea, wind, bloating, and stomach upsets whilst their body adjusts to them, but this will ease off. However, for people with compromised immune systems, there can be some serious side effects. In those with injured or punctured bowels, using these products can cause infections and sepsis, as the bacteria can leak into the bowel. It is vital that anyone who isn’t sure checks with their doctor or health care professional before using. Source
Aava Labs Prebiotics are available from Amazon for £15.99, for sixty capsules. This should last one to two months, depending on the dosage you decide to take.
Aava Labs Prebiotics is a once or twice a day capsule probiotic supplement containing zinc. It is supposed to help increase the levels of good bacteria in the gut, whilst the zinc will help you to lead a ‘vibrant and adventurous’ lifestyle by improving cognitive function, maintenance of bones, and immune function. It is manufactured by Aava Labs, a family run business based in Helsinki in Finland.
We know very little about Aava Labs, the company behind the supplement. The website is still under construction, being launched (at the time of writing) in 144 days. All we know is that they are a family run business in Helsinki, Finland, who want to ‘live and breathe wellness, and share this with the globe’ with their Nordic inspired products.
As a dietary supplement, take one to two capsules a day, preferably with water or food, or as directed by your healthcare professional. Do not exceed the recommended daily dose.
In the Amazon description, Aava Labs claim that their product infuses ‘Nordic values of purity & freshness into the world and support your adventure’. The inclusion of zinc, they say, is to help you to improve cognitive function, maintenance of bones, and immune function.
It is worth noting here that in the US, probiotic supplements are not recognised or regulated by the FDA (Food and Drugs Authority), but manufacturers are not allowed to state any health or disease-related claims when it comes to prebiotics.
As we said before, we are undecided when it comes to probiotics. There is very little evidence to support the use of them, and we tend to err on the side of science. However, reviews on Amazon generally seem positive, and we do know that increasing the level of good bacteria in your gut is always going to be a good thing. However, due to exact quantities not being listed, we have no idea whether enough of each strain of bacteria is included to say whether it will work or not. We think that consuming gut-friendly foods such as kefir, sauerkraut, and yoghurt will probably have just as good an effect as this supplement.

As a whole, these should not cause much in the way of serious side effects in healthy individuals. In the first few days of taking them, some users might experience diarrhea, wind, bloating, and stomach upsets whilst the body adjusts to them, but this will ease off. However, if you have any medical conditions, it is vital you check with a healthcare professional before using as it may have some serious side effects for some conditions.
For adult use only. Consult a doctor before use if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, or have a medical condition. Not to be used as a substitute for a varied and balanced diet and healthy lifestyle.
Generally, the customer reviews on Amazon for this product are positive. with comments such as:
I have tried a dozen different probiotic supplements, yogurts, actimels, and so on, but, none really helped with my overall digestion / digestive tract like these. I’m actually quite amazed that within a few days I experienced less bloating, reduced stomach pains, and better intestinal workings shall we say. Highly recommended. I have been using now for about 20 days. Really pleased and will be buying again.
However, some users have noticed no difference in their health after taking them:
One month into taking them. No difference in anything
If you purchase from Amazon, you are automatically covered by their money-back and returns policy, but it also states in the description that Aava Labs products are covered by a ‘365 day, empty bottle, money back guarantee’. It is unclear exactly what this means or how you go about arranging this if you are unhappy with your products.
You cannot purchase this from the website directly. It is available from Amazon. The RRP appears to be £15.99 for a bottle containing 60 capsules.
The jury is definitely out when it comes to probiotics in general. Whilst they seem to be the big thing in the supplement world at the moment, there is almost no scientific evidence to suggest that they have any benefit. There are so many different strains of bacteria in the gut – between 500 and 1000 – that it is very difficult to pinpoint which ones will help. The Aava Labs one has 15 different strains, which is quite good compared to a lot of probiotics, but there are still many, many more that are not included. It is also very unclear on how much of each strain is included, and studies show that generally, prebiotic supplements do not include enough of each strain to cause any positive effects.
There is also next to no information about the company behind it. The website appears to be under construction, with a ‘coming soon’ message. At the time of writing, there appeared to be 144 days until it was launched. All we know is that it is (apparently) a family run business based in Helsinki, Finland. We can’t find any reviews of either the product or the company itself anywhere other than on Amazon.
With this in mind, we do not recommend Aava Labs Probiotic to our readers.
