Provide the answer to the question here.
They act as “food” or “energy” that promotes the growth and health of good bacteria.
The probiotics populate the gut and digestive system with a health-enriching bacteria population.
These are the nutrient by-products that probiotics produce to deliver tangible health benefits. They also enhance prebiotic use and probiotic growth in the gut.
Using nature’s own synthesis process of fermentation, 10 probiotic cultures and 19 herbs coherently produce a perfectly balanced microbiome & living ecosystem.
We Use Science to Replicate Nature's Perfect Gut Processes
Every moment of every day, your gut is in the process of fermentation. Digestion is fermentation, and healthy fermentation requires good bacteria (probiotics), energy sources (prebiotics), and building blocks (postbiotics). And all of this is a living and breathing ecosystem.
Using 19 medicinal herbs, 10 live-culture strains, and a 3 stage fermentation process – Flora Biome is created through the same natural fermentation process – and transforms into a living, balanced ecosystem that replicates a healthy gut.

How to Get Your Gut & Health Back On Track
We have a simple plan that will guide you in restoring inner gut vitality.
Promotes Bacterial Diversity with Micro-Strains
Not only does each serving contain 15 billion CFUs of the 10 fundamental strains - but Flora Biome also contains a multitude of micro-strains that emerge from the fermentation of each herb. This bacterial diversity is just like nature and is essential to a microbiome that requires thousands of good bacteria strains.
Fermentation Perfectly Preserves Living Probiotics
Many probiotics begin to die off while they are sitting in the bottle on the shelf. Flora Biome is 100% shelf-stable at room temperature. The natural lactic acid produced in fermentation perfectly preserves the live-culture probiotics.
Nature's Acid Resistant Delivery System
The low pH of the fermented liquid is nature's perfect acid-resistant delivery system, delivering the probiotics not only to the lower intestine but the entire gut system. It perfectly preserves the probiotics up until the point they are ready to populate your gut.
End-Stage Metabolites (Postbiotics) from Fermentation
Did you know the primary goal of probiotics is to produce postbiotics in your body? These are the health-enriching byproducts of probiotics. The fermentation process actually produces these postbiotics - so when you drink Flora Biome - you instantly obtain these health-enriching postbiotics.
Each bottle contains a living ecosystem of perfectly balanced microbiome formulated to replicate a healthy gut and digestive system, delivering not only the probiotics but also the prebiotics, enzymes, and postbiotics necessary for vital health.
Optimize Your Microbiome for Total Body Health
The microbiome within your body contains over 100 trillion microbes. It is foundational to nearly all facets of health. Gut health and the gut microbiome are shown to play a crucial role in:
- Energy Levels & Vitality*
- Brain Function*
- Mood & Production of Neurotransmitters*
- Entire Digestive Process*
- Healthy Weight Management*
- Liver Function*
- Skin Health & Appearance*
- Nutrient Absorption & Utilization*
The Role of Prebiotics, Probiotics & Postbiotics
If you want to restore your health at the “gut level” you have to transform it into a vibrant & healthy ecosystem. Below is a breakdown or Pre, Pro & Postbiotics role in health.
Prebiotics: These are the food source or energy for your gut’s healthy bacteria or probiotics. They literally help the healthy bacteria grow and produce more healthy bacteria. Without the prebiotics your gut bacteria essentially begin to starve and die off. It is crucial you are continually fueling and nourishing the beneficial bacteria (probiotics) in your gut; just as animals need food, probiotics need prebiotics. *Probiotics: These are well known as the good bacteria that populates your gut. There are literally trillions of these live microorganisms that make up your microbiome. These bacteria are responsible for literally hundreds of different biological processes. For example, they are involved in producing vitamins such as B12 or K2. They regulate your central nervous system. They help produce neurotransmitters like serotonin. They regulate your immune system and help fight off pathogens. They aid in the digestion of your food… And the list goes on. The microbiome is crucial to health and when it is out of sync people suffer from a multitude of health ailments. *Postbiotics: These are the nutrient byproducts produced by probiotics when they consume prebiotics. Many of the health benefits of probiotics are actually related to the postbiotics they produce; if probiotics are a tree, then the postbiotics are the fruit the tree produces. Postbiotics can only come from the probiotics in your gut and fermented foods and beverages. It is highly beneficial to consume postbiotics because they immediately begin providing relief and health benefits. Rather than waiting on your gut microbiome to produce these essential nutrients, you can also consume them directly and immediately enjoy their benefits. *

We generally do not recommend adding to a hot beverage. Once the live probiotics are exposed to temperatures over 100 degrees, they begin to die off.
Our flora biome does not need refrigeration – but on the label, we recommend refrigerating AFTER opening. This is not essential but recommended. The fermentation naturally preserves the various bacteria strains; also, the fermentation produces strains of lactic acid bacteria that are naturally self-preserving of the various probiotic strains. Lastly, we generally find that people enjoy the taste more when it is chilled.
It is 100% soy-free.
Flora Biome is fermented. It has a similar pH to the stomach, when the stomach is in a fasted state or empty. The bacteria being stable and alive in this pH environment can easily travel through the gut and populate the inner microbiome. Prior to probiotics, humans always got their probiotic bacteria from fermented foods and drinks. Fermented things are naturally adapted to the stomach and have historically always been able to aid in populating the microbiome.
Reestablishing the gut microbiome can take some time – but generally, you should start experiencing gradual improvements after 1-2 bottles.
Aside from your use of Flora Biome and gut microbiome optimization, you may want to explore if you have any food allergies, such as gluten sensitivity, or other various food sensitivities. You may not have a major allergy to a food source, but general sensitivities can absolutely lead to experiences of continual bloating. There may also be other minor dietary changes to consider. Usually the intense long-standing bloating and discomfort you're experiencing may also be catalyzed by something in your diet. We recommend the continual use of Flora Biome for those with major gut or dietary sensitivities or anyone that is most in need of a healthy and robust gut microbiome, as it will aid in this process.
There are up to 2 calories per serving and it should not break your fast.
If your gut is out of sync and requires a reset, you can absolutely take it for a period of time to re-establish the health of your gut and then stop taking it. Gut health is extremely dynamic and we have many customers that generally love to continue to take the product to keep their gut health in an optimal condition. They don’t need to take as much or as frequently.
If you do stop taking it after doing a gut reset – you should look at the underlying conditions that led to the gut imbalance, which is usually diet and lifestyle related. Once the gut is re-established to a state of health, you must continue to provide it with the right conditions for health.
Yes, you can absolutely do that. We would just recommend using a smaller bottle and leaving very little air space in the bottle, so essentially, fill it up all the way. To note, Flora Biome is naturally preserved at room temperature due to the fermentation. We actually recommend refrigeration after opening because the air space in the bottle causes slow breakdown, and the cooler air from the fridge slows that process down.
Yes, the probiotics can travel the upper GI tract to populate the entire microbiome of the digestive system. Due to fermentation, the liquid probiotic has a low pH of 3.75 while the gut on an empty stomach has a pH of 3.5. The pH created by the fermentation not only naturally preserves the probiotics while in the bottle – it also helps aid its safe passage through the GI system to fully populate the entire digestive system. We would also like to note, the digestive system microbiome starts in the mouth and travels all the way through the entire digestive tract. Capsule probiotics are only able to populate the lower intestine, whereas Flora Biome can populate the entire length of the digestive tract from the moment it enters your mouth.
The product does not have a fizz, but sometimes makes a little hiss when it is first open. The hiss is from small amounts of air pressure that form in the bottle. The caps are specially designed to allow small releases of this pressure to ensure the bottle does not crack or blow from the air pressure. It is ok if you don't hear the little hiss.
Our Flora Biome does not contain any milk.
There's approximately 1 gram of carbohydrates per 1 oz of liquid. The molasses used in the fermentation process acts as food that promotes the growth of the bacteria during the fermentation process. So the bacteria actually feed off and utilize the sugar content.
Yes, the product is derived from fermentation and has a natural vinegar like taste and smell to it.
There is no alcohol content in Flora Biome.
Yes, this is a glass bottle.
Our Flora Biome is made in Canada.
Yes, it is vegan.
The fermentation is very effective in preserving the live culture bacteria. And we do advise shippers to use climate controlled trucks. As long as the box does not sit for a long time in the direct heat and the actual liquid reaches temperatures over 98 degrees for an extended period of time (say 6 to 9 hours) the live-culture will be fully preserved. Please note, it will take an extended period of long and direct heat for the liquid in the bottle to reach such high temperatures.
Yes, you can absolutely use this type of application. We are actually developing a nasal form of Flora Biome that can be used to optimize the upper respiratory system microbiome.
