About Synbiotic Pre+Probiotic
Modern agriculture and refrigeration mean that most diets lack natural probiotics, and eating fermented foods is not always convenient or palatable. Whole Food Synbiotic offers a convenient option to restore and replenish beneficial bacteria in the gut.
The whole food 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 fibers, they form postbiotics like short-chain fatty acids (SCFAs).
SCFAs help lower the pH of the gut, creating a more favorable environment for beneficial bacteria. Our whole food 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 supported strains. It is also gluten free, sugar free, and suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
Probiotic supplements created using fermentation provide the beneficial microorganisms in a form the body finds more familiar and easier to accept. Lactobacillus and bifidobacteria make up a large proportion of the microflora in the digestive tract where they help metabolize food, synthesize vitamins and fatty acids, and aid nutrient absorption. Because bifidobacteria do not form long-term colonies in the gut and are typically excreted within two weeks, regular intake is required to maintain healthy gut flora.*
Prebiotics, in the form of short-chain fructooligosaccharides (scFOS), escape digestion in the small intestine and are fermented by beneficial bacteria in the colon to produce postbiotics, including SCFAs. These beneficial metabolites help maintain a more acidic gut pH, which favors beneficial bacteria while inhibiting the growth of pathogenic bacteria. SCFAs also help keep inflammation in check and play other vital roles in various bodily systems.
1 capsule per day with or without food or as directed by a health professional. Take at least 2–3 hours before or after antibiotics.

Are the vitamins and minerals fermented, USP vitamins, or a combination of both?A
Most of the vitamins and minerals in the multivitamin and mineral formulas, including Bone Structure, are from the fresh farm ingredients or from food sources such as organic algae (calcium), lichen (vitamin D3), sunflower oil (vitamin E), natto (vitamin K2), Indian gooseberry (vitamin C), selenium (sprouted garlic), Dunaliella salina (beta carotene), kelp (iodine), marigold flowers (lutein) and tomatoes (lycopene). Our proprietary formulas also utilize activated forms of vitamins to ensure that meaningful levels of key nutrients are delivered in the bioactive whole food formula.
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 harvested and the material is dried off. By contrast, Whole Earth & Sea uses our proprietary EnviroSimplex® technology to infuse each supplement with the concentrated goodness of raw nutrition.
Where is the Whole Earth & Sea farm?A
Our own Natural Factors farms are located in the beautiful Okanagan Valley of British Columbia, and we refer to them as Factors Farms.
