Benefits

Quickly rebalances a disrupted gut microbiome

Targeted, clinically studied bacteriophages begin working in as little as 24 hours to restore balance in your gut microbiome. Found abundantly in nature, bacteriophages suppress the growth of harmful bacteria, including e. Coli, creating space and nutrients that encourage beneficial microbes to flourish and multiply. This quickly shifts the terrain of your gut, bringing it back into balance.

Increases microbial diversity in your gut


Designed to reconnect you with earth’s natural intelligence, our carefully-selected blend of soil-based Bacillus strains helps balance and diversify your gut microbiome. Arguably the most resilient microbes on earth, these spore-based microflora emerge from dormancy in your lower intestine where they help lay the foundation for robust wellness.

Strengthens the terrain of your inner ecosystem


Terraflora® Advanced Care’s combination of bacteriophages and Bacillus strains improves the integrity of the gut lining by tightening the junctions in the epithelial layer of the intestinal barrier. This helps reduce permeability, creating a strong first line of defense against everyday toxin exposures, which in turn supports a healthy inflammatory response, immune function, digestion and mental clarity.

Promotes resilience and vibrant health


Our unique synbiotic blend mimics the synergies and complexity of the natural microbiota and nutrients found in ancestral diets, which most modern diets lack. This is key to rewilding your gut microbiome and creating a resilient, adaptable immune system that enables you to survive—and thrive—in any environment.

Ingredient highlights

Ribospore® (Bacillus pumilus)

This unique spore-forming Bacillus strain works in synergy with your microbiome to enhance your health. Ribospore® has been shown to produce riboflavin, as well as bioavailable antioxidant carotenoids. Riboflavin is a B vitamin with powerful prebiotic effects.

Bacillus megaterium EM144™

A clinically studied, spore-forming strain found in ancestral diets, Bacillus megaterium EM144™ has been shown to produce highly bioavailable antioxidant carotenoids at the site of absorption.

Wild-Harvested Nordic Chaga

Sustainably wild-harvested in the Finnish Lapland forest, this organic mushroom fruiting body extract provides a diverse spectrum of polyphenols and polysaccharides that act as prebiotics to help support a healthy inflammation response in the gut.

Wild-Harvested Nova Scotian Bladderwrack

Wild harvested from the clean ocean waters of Nova Scotia, this organic bladderwrack is rich in marine polyphenols and polysaccharides that function as prebiotics to maintain healthy levels of beneficial bacteria and increase the integrity of the gut lining.

Phage Bio-Complex (PreforPro®)

Composed of proteins, bacteriophages are abundant in nature. Their natural function is to target and overtake “bad” bacteria, which helps to encourage the proliferation of “good” bacteria and supports balance in the gut microbiome.

How To Take

Serving Size — 2 Capsules

Servings Per Container — 30

The human body continually adapts, responds and acclimates to the world around it. As such, introducing a new balance of microbes to the body also requires slight adaptation.

Suggested Use — To begin, take one capsule every other day, and gradually increase to 1 capsule, 2x daily, or as recommended by your healthcare practitioner. Best taken with food.

An immediate response is normal and a sign that the synbiotic is reconditioning the intestinal terrain of your GI tract as intended. Any discomfort should subside within 3-5 days.

Resilient microbes for resilient health

Found naturally in the earth, soil-based organisms (SBOs) co-evolved with humans for millions of years and are uniquely adapted to thrive in synergy with the human microbiome. 

Unlike common probiotic products, that require extra capsules, special coatings, and preservatives to remain viable even at room temperature to possibly survive the journey through shipment, SBOs are naturally resilient and shelf-stable. A seed-like spore structure encases and protects SBOs against degradation by heat, light and stomach acid, so they arrive in your lower GI tract intact to help your microbiome flourish.

I have been taking it for a few weeks and I can’t tell any difference. I kinda expected to see or feel a difference. But nothing changed. It’s a bit expensive to not see any noticeable changes.. I probably will not purchase it again.

FAQs

Why would I choose Terraflora Advanced Care?

Terraflora Advanced Care contains the same base formulation of probiotics and prebiotics as the Daily Care product, with the addition of a bacteriophage complex called PreforPro. This ingredient has been shown clinically to inhibit the growth of unwanted bacteria in the gut, while also acting as a novel prebiotic. Studies have demonstrated that PreforPro supports the proliferation of our inherent commensal bacteria and the Bacillus strains contained in Terraflora in as little as 24-hours. It has also shown to increase counts of butyrate, which tightens and reinforces the cellular junctions of the gut lining.

We typically recommend that individuals who are just starting out on Terraflora begin with the Advanced Care formulation for a period of 60 days to help clear out overgrowths of unwanted bacteria. Specifically, the bacteriophage complex targets e.coli overgrowth, which is a significant marker of dysbiosis. After this introductory time frame, clients can transition to either our Daily Care or Deep Immune formulation, depending on their individual needs moving forward.

What is a bacteriophage?


Phages are submicroscopic bundles of DNA or RNA surrounded by a protein shell. They are abundant throughout the natural world, occuring in seawater, soil, humans, and fermented foods. In fact, there are ten times more phages that the trillions of bacteria present in the human body. Phages exist in nature for one purpose - each to overtake a specific strain of bacteria. By using a bacteriophage complex that targets unwanted bacteria in the gut, one is able to modulate the gut microbiota and encourage the balance of the overall system.

What are soil-based or spore-form probiotics?


Soil based organisms (SBOs) or spore-form probiotics define a class of probiotic supplements based on a greater understanding of the incredible diversity of the human gut, coupled with a deeper appreciation for how humans and their commensal “helper” bacteria work together to produce a healthy system.

Selected for their unique characteristics, the Bacillus probiotic strains utilized in our formulation are gram-positive bacteria that can exist in two forms. Under favorable conditions, the bacteria grow in a vegetative form, but when starved of nutrients they differentiate into a dormant life form known as an endospore. These endospores come alive when introduced to an ideal environment, such as the human gut. The commensal strains in Terraflora are resistant to stressors such as light, heat, and time, and remain viable while in transit, on the shelf and through the harsh acidic environment of the stomach. This means that they deliver active, therapeutic levels when they reach the lower GI tract.

How are they different from "traditional" probiotics?


Terraflora® is a better choice as a probiotic because the spore-based bacillus strains in our probiotic formula are heat resistant, shelf stable, and protected from harsh stomach acid. On the contrary, many Lactic acid based probiotic strains do not have that same inherent resiliency, typically require refrigeration, and often do not survive all the way through the digestive tract. Spore-based bacillus bacteria is naturally occurring in our environment, highly viable, and able to colonize in the gut where you need it most.

Terraflora® is also a Synbiotic, meaning in addition to the probiotic strains, Terraflora’s formula includes a prebiotic bio-complex of wild-harvested, certified organic, food-based ingredients. The paired prebiotics in Terraflora™ are designed to enrich a broad spectrum of beneficial bacteria within the GI tract, which ensures successful proliferation of favorable microbes throughout the lower intestine.

And while there are other Bacillus-based probiotics on the market, Terraflora® is the only probiotic available that combines spore-based bacteria with prebiotics specifically designed to support and maintain a healthy bacterial balance in the gut.

Does Terraflora need to be refrigerated?


No, the probiotic bacteria in Terraflora is innately shelf-stable and does not require refrigeration.

Should I take Terraflora with food? Or at a certain time of day?


Terraflora can be taken with or without food and at any time of the day. The best time to take it is the time that is easiest/most convenient for you and will allow you to stay consistent in your supplementation. That being said, consuming Terraflora with a meal mimics a more natural exposure to the soil-based organisms it contains.

How many capsules should I take?


When first introducing Terraflora to your system, we recommend the following protocol: Week 1 - 1 capsule every other day. Week 2: 1 capsule daily. Week 3 and beyond: 2 capsules daily.

What is the difference between a probiotic and a synbiotic?


Probiotics are beneficial bacteria and yeast intended to help improve already existing communities of microorganisms, primarily in the gut. Prebiotics are non-digestible carbohydrates that feed and assist these beneficial microorganisms. Synbiotics, like Terraflora, are supplements that contain both prebiotic and probiotic components. Not only does this ensure that the bacterial strains will have the nutrients necessary to reach the lower GI tract intact, but will provide additional resources to selectively feed current gut flora populations.

How do I know Terraflora is working?


The benefits you may ‘feel’ include increased consistency and regularity of bowel movements and decreased GI distress such as gas, bloating, and indigestion. You may feel results in as little as 24-48 hours due to localized benefits like improved digestion, or it make 2 to 3 weeks for your system to adapt to the introduction of new beneficial probiotic species and become fully optimized after following the slow introduction protocol included with each bottle and reaching the recommended 2 capsule daily serving size.

Long-term benefits include improved mood, increased energy levels, and optimized immune system function, but these are a bit more nuanced. For example, you may notice no discernible benefits until you reflect on the last 6 months and realize that you haven’t had a cold. Given the vast differences in each person’s bio-individuality, it is difficult to say exactly what your response will be, but as long as you stay consistent in your supplementation, these beneficial microbes and certified organic pre-biotic foods are doing their work inside the gut to program, sustain, and enhance your health.

Is Terraflora vegan?


Yes, Terraflora is vegan friendly as well as entirely free of gluten, corn, soy, nuts, dairy, or any other common allergen as defined by the FDA.

What are active-fluorescent units (AFUs)?


Active-fluorescent units (AFUs) represent a count of living and viable bacteria in a probiotic as measured by flow cytometry.

Why are there only 1 billion AFU?


You may be familiar with some of the astronomical AFU counts advertised by "traditional" probiotics that use lactobacillus or bifidobacterium-based organisms. These organisms are inherently fragile, which is why you see such high numbers included, in hopes that a small percentage of them will actually reach the gut. The reality is that the vast majority of them are killed off by the acidic nature of digestion, and AFU counts have essentially become a marketing tool for many products.

Selected for their unique characteristics, the Bacillus strains utilized in our formulation are gram-positive bacteria that can exist in two forms. Under favorable conditions, the bacteria grow in a vegetative form, but when starved of nutrients they differentiate into a dormant life form known as an endospore. These endospores come alive when introduced to an ideal environment, such as the human gut. The commensal strains in Terraflora are resistant to stressors such as light, heat, and time, and remain viable while in transit, on the shelf and through the harsh acidic environment of the stomach. This means that they deliver active, therapeutic levels when they reach the lower GI tract.

Terraflora is a potent, powerful probiotic that requires a multiple-week period of adjustment for most people. That is why we recommend a slow introduction protocol of one capsule every other day for the first week, one daily for the second week, and then up to two daily by week three. At higher doses/AFUs, it’s likely that Terraflora’s unique strains would be too strong for many individuals and would require an even longer introduction period. We would encourage you to focus on results like increased regularity and decreased digestive issues such as loose stools, gas, bloating, or constipation, rather than getting too caught up on AFU counts when dealing with soil-based organisms. Bigger is not always better, and that holds true for our product.

I have trouble swallowing capsules can these be opened?


Yes, the Terraflora capsules can be opened and added to water, food, or a smoothie. This will not alter their effectiveness, although we do recommend consuming any food or drink that Terraflora has been added to right away, not storing for later consumption.

Does Terraflora contain histamine producing probiotic strains?


There are no histamine producing probiotic strains in any of our Terraflora formulations.

Is Terraflora safe for children?


The ingredients contained in all Terraflora formulations are safe for children to consume, but we recommend that you consult with your pediatrician prior to incorporating it, or any other supplement, into their routine. Smaller, less-frequent doses may be ideal. The capsules can be opened and emptied into food or a smoothie for immediate consumption.
