Pioneers in evolutionary medicine, Enviromedica® innovates gut microbiome care with the launch of Terraflora™. Terraflora™ is a broad spectrum synbiotic bringing to market an advanced formulation of novel, soil-based, probiotic strains and diverse prebiotics. The spore-based microbes in Terraflora™ are designed to nurture and support the center of wellness – the human gut.
“Science teaches us that the human gut is central to optimal health, and the evidence effectively supports that biodiversity in the gut microbiota is reflective of a healthy individual. Through ancestral health philosophy and evolutionary study, we know human beings have always had naturalistic exposure to environmental microbes, with the majority being from soil exposure by way of diet and lifestyle,” says Enviromedica CEO, Jared Ramirez. “Environmental microbes are nature’s inoculant. Terraflora™ allows the body to regain the much-needed exposure to healthy microbes absent in our hyper-sanitized, post-industrial civilization.”
Terraflora™ introduces Ribospore™ (Bacillus pumilus) and Bacillus megaterium EM144™ –novel, spore-form microorganisms scientifically shown to generate highly bioavailable, gastric stable antioxidant carotenoids, with Ribospore™ (Bacillus pumilus) generating riboflavin (vitamin B2) in the gastrointestinal tract– providing 300-500 times more riboflavin than a typical strain. In addition to the proprietary new Ribospore™ (Bacillus pumilus) and Bacillus megaterium EM144™—Bacillus subtilis, Bacillus clausii, and Bacillus coagulans complete Terraflora’s multi-strain probiotic bio-complex. Terraflora™ adds purposeful, certified organic prebiotics specifically designed to support healthy intestinal flora, with naturally-occurring food-based polyphenols and polysaccharides, sustainably sourced from wild-harvested seaweeds, mushroom fruiting bodies, and humic acid.
“Terraflora™ Broad Spectrum Synbiotic incorporates two new, branded bacillus strains,” says Ramirez. “We are also the first to introduce these species to the market with GRAS affirmation—they are guaranteed for potency, and DNA verified. And the additional bacillus strains are blended to support, complement, and add diversity to the formula.”
The combination of innovative probiotics and ancient prebiotics make Terraflora™ a professional-grade, broad spectrum synbiotic. Research demonstrates that probiotic strains within the same genus or group (such as Bacillus, Lactobacillus, Bifidobacterium, etc.) provide different benefits in the gut. The same has been found with yeasts and soil-based organisms. Thus, to bring about and maintain proper balance, a multi-strain probiotic formula reflecting diversity in both number of species and number of genera (groups) is recommended. The paired prebiotics in Terraflora™ have beneficial GI tract functions of their own, in addition to providing fuel for the probiotics, which ensures successful propagation by supporting the proliferation and delivery of probiotic bacteria in the lower intestine.
Given the acidic environment of digestion, many traditional probiotics are too fragile to survive. Terraflora™ has a natural seed-like structure that encases the probiotic bacteria. This barrier protects against degradation by stomach acid, so they reach their target destination in the lower GI tract – intact and alive. Traditional probiotics are further challenged by their short shelf life and need for constant climate control. Terraflora’s bacteria are inherently resilient so no refrigeration is required, and the potency and viability are maintained. Terraflora™ Broad Spectrum Synbiotic is shelf-stable, vegan, free from dairy, wheat, yeast, gluten, shellfish, egg, corn, sugar, soy, nuts, and GMO’s; and is made without stearates, fillers, binders or flow agents.
“Terraflora™ is not about one single ingredient, but the formula as a whole. It is for advanced, whole gut health.”
