More than a probiotic company


We believe in giving back. This is more than a business to us; it’s about supporting each other. That's why we offer discounts to Parkinson’s patients and donate bottles of probiotics to the Navajo Nation.

Our Values

We are committed to restoring the health of our friends, family, those we have never met, and the earth. 


We believe that everything we do should take into consideration our surroundings with an inherent respect for the interplay of natural ecosystems.

Let us know how we can make a difference in your world.

His current interest focuses in metagenomics and comparative metabolomics to create “functional probiotic formulations” as well as developing standard procedures of microbiome research. His “hobby” is the study of the microbiome and resistome of ancient human populations, including pre-Colombian cultures and ancient European and African cultures. 

He has lectured to scientists around the world and has been published dozens of times in scientific journals including Science, Nature, Microbial Ecology, Applied and Environmental Microbiology, and many more. He has done patented work on deriving ancient bacteria from amber inclusions, exploration of petroleum production using microbial community analysis, and has a patent pending in functional probiotic formulations, sample processing for and control reagents for microbiome research, bioremediation, methods of detecting pathogens in foods.
