Alive Series A New Paradigm of Activated Herbals

Alive Series A New Paradigm of Activated Herbals

For our Alive Series, Living Alchemy uses the ancient art of fermentation to activate herbs and foods into their superior form to support our modern day physical and mental stress. We produce these using a traditional, month long fermentation containing diverse select species of microorganisms from kefir and kombucha cultures. This activation delivers the complete, activated herb within a living food matrix for exceptional vitality and bioavailability.

Our Alive formulas deliver the whole of each organic herb and food in an enhanced, activated, and highly bioavailable form like no other. Instead of focusing just on one particular compound within the herb or food, we use our diverse strain Kefir-kombucha culture to transform the entire herb or food into its activated state. In essence, it’s microbes perfecting herbs and foods, or rather, life perfecting nature. Only a long, traditional fermentation process can produce herbs and foods in this perfect state where your body recognizes and utilizes the nutrients to deeply nourish itself.

A Kefir-Kombucha Coconut Yogurt

The history of kombucha is a mystery but the most likely place of origin is Asia as far back as two thousand years ago. Only recently has it become popular with a North American audience. Kombucha is a fermented drink made from bacteria and yeast with either black or green tea.

It’s really the fermentation process that gives kombucha it’s nutritious value and benefits. Fermentation is a metabolic process that converting sugar into chemical compounds such as yeast as in bread or lactic acid such as in sauerkraut, enhancing the good microorganisms including the probiotic bacteria in the fermentation.

A Healthy Terrain with Your Flora SYMBIOTICS

A Healthy Terrain with Your Flora SYMBIOTICS
Our digestive system is a wonder to behold. The gastrointestinal (GI) tract performs a variety of functions, including breaking down food, absorption, secretion, and boosting our immune system. As we’ve discussed in previous blogs, our gut can influence our mental health, as well as a variety of other functions in the body. While we will focus specifically on the gut (i.e. the small and large intestines), it’s important to note that the GI tract starts in the esophagus and finishes at the anus. Digestion includes all of these vital organs that you can see in the diagram below.
