Flourish Original is an artisanal crafted living probiotic that remains in the most natural liquid form. The all-natural fermentation process provides the good bacteria with all the nutrition, from their food source molasses, needed to continue to live, thrive, and multiply even after bottling.
Our consortium growing methodology (AKA good friends hanging out) is similar to how microorganisms grow in nature – together. It contains eleven strains from five different families that grow and interact with one another with a result of being stronger together than alone.
Flourish Original is intentionally free of
Dairy, eggs, gluten, soy, peanuts, tree nuts, shellfish, carrageenan, artificial colors, artificial sweeteners, glyphosate residue, GMOs.
As a complete living ecosystem, the flavor, aroma, and culture count may vary from batch to batch. Each batch is third party tested to ensure a minimum of 8 billion CFUs (culture forming units).
How does Flourish compare to Kombucha?
Kombucha is more of a casual, leisure drink. Many people sip on a bottle of kombucha instead of coffee, tea, or soda as a “daily/habitual” beverage. Most popular brands of kombucha are labeled to contain 2 – 6 billion organisms in one 16 oz bottle, compared to the minimum of 8 billion organisms in one Tbsp of Flourish. One would have to drink four to five entire 16 oz bottles to get the same volume of probiotics that you would get from one Tablespoon of Flourish. And at 6-9 grams of sugar per serving, that adds up quickly!
Flourish is concentrated volume of bacteria to be used as a supplement rather than a leisurely sipping drink. Another significant difference between Flourish and kombucha is diversity of strains. Flourish contains eleven different strains of beneficial probiotics from five different genera: Lactobacillus, Bifidobacterium, Enterococcus, Bacillus, and Saccharomyces, whereas most kombuchas typically contain 2-4 strains. Also, the SCOBY or “mother culture” for kombucha most likely has different strains of bacteria than that of our product; therefore, adding diversity to our gut biome.
Could you do both? Absolutely. It is really hard, and quite frankly rare, to overdose on good gut bacteria.
