About Fermented Whole Food Probiotic
Whole Earth & Sea Fermented Whole Food Probiotic is a 100% plant-based, dairy-free, once-daily probiotic supplement featuring 10 billion active cells of beneficial bacteria per capsule at expiry. This unique wholefood blend harnesses the power of natural fermentation to deliver 10 active strains with organic prebiotics in a single convenient serving for gentle relief of constipation and bowel irregularity, and to reduce the frequency of flatulence and other functional gastrointestinal symptoms.
Modern agriculture and refrigeration mean that most diets lack natural probiotics, and eating fermented foods is not always convenient or palatable. Whole Earth & Sea Fermented Whole Food Probiotic offers a convenient one-per-day option to restore and replenish beneficial bacteria in the gut. The wholefood probiotics in this formula are cultured using natural foods as the growth medium, meaning that the body more easily accepts these beneficial live bacteria.
This formula also features a fermented prebiotic blend of organic, non-GMO fruits, vegetables, and herbs, which help feed beneficial bacteria. When probiotics break down these dietary fibres, they form postbiotics like short-chain fatty acids (SCFAs). SCFAs help lower the pH of the gut, creating a more favourable environment for beneficial bacteria as opposed to harmful bacteria. Our wholefood probiotic blend with prebiotics optimizes the gut environment to help create these beneficial postbiotics. Shelf stable and gastric acid resistant, this probiotic formula provides complete gastrointestinal support through clinically proven strains. It is also gluten-free, sugar-free, and suitable for vegetarians and vegans.

Promotes bowel movement and provides gentle relief of constipation and/or irregularity. Source of probiotics. Promotes favourable gut flora/intestinal microflora.

Fermented Whole Food Probiotic provides 10 billion live probiotic cultures per capsule, cultured in a fermented prebiotic matrix comprised of apple, blueberry, cranberry, broccoli, carrot, kale, parsley, spinach, and plant-based inulin. This matrix serves as the perfect nourishing culture medium to ensure the survival of the strongest bacteria and postbiotics for optimal digestion and wellness.

Are most or all of the plants in the Whole Earth & Sea formulas from your own farms?A
Many of them come from our farms – kale, alfalfa, spearmint, oregano, peppers, cilantro, parsley, and echinacea to name a few. If the plant is not from our farms you can rest assured that the ingredients we are using are from farmers known for their commitment to grow organically with the same care and ethical farming practices we also use. Each food source is rigorously examined for quality, prior to being used in a Whole Earth & Sea product.
How do Whole Earth & Sea formulas compare to other whole-food supplements?A
Several companies market versions of what they refer to as “whole-food” vitamins. Most of the nutrients in supplements marketed as whole-food are produced by mixing (USP) vitamins and minerals with Saccharomyces cerevisiae (baker’s yeast) sugar or molasses in a big tank. After some amount of time has passed (usually 12 – 24 hours), the yeast is killed off and the material is dried off. By contrast, Whole Earth & Sea formulas use Farm Fresh Factors™ as well as other whole food sources and raw processes these nutrient-dense plants using our proprietary EnviroSimplex® technology, yielding a concentrated biomass of bioenergetic vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and phytonutrients.
