The brew process of Flourish Original and Junior allows the bacteria to create an environment that promotes the sustained growth of beneficial bacteria. Bacterial growth is influenced by several key factors including time, temperature, and food source.
Each small brew batch of Flourish is mixed manually and patiently waited upon. During this fermentation growth phase, the bacteria produce a preferred environment. The bacteria to continue to grow even after bottling and shipping as they travel to your home. Because the environment is slightly acidic, the bacteria do not need any help surviving the stomach in order to make their way down to the colon.
Time – Start to finish, the fermentation process of each batch takes about two weeks.
Temperature – The happy bugs are tucked into a warm Goldilocks environment – not too hot and not too cold.
The bacteria strains in Flourish are by design.
Diverse – Eleven strains from five genera provide a broad and diverse ecosystem to support your native microbiome.
Synergic – The bacteria live and grow together. Several of the strains were chosen primarily because they are good neighbors and encourage bacteria to be better together than they are apart.
Beneficial – Each of the strains are of benefit to the human microbiome.
Having chosen to keep our probiotic blend alive and in its self-regulated environment is on purpose. This form of probiotic allows for the bacteria to continue to grow even after bottling. As a result, each bottle and each dose are filled with the metabolites produced throughout the growth process. In addition, the bacteria’s naturally produced pH levels are similar to that of a normal stomach.1
In the coming weeks, we will highlight the bacteria and get to know the happy characters that make up your bottle of Flourish! Stay tuned to learn more.
