Organic Fermented Wisdom - Living Nutrition
Living Nutrition's Wisdom is a blend of herbs fermented by Kefir-Kombucha, including Holy Basil, Gotu Kola, Matcha tea and the medicinal mushroom Lion's Mane. This formula is often used to support meditation practice because of the components of the ingredients, all of which can contribute to normal concentration and memory function. So: breathe in, breathe out, take a dose of 'Wisdom' and see what it brings you!
History of herbal medicine
The beginning of herbal medicine is most likely related to the beginning of the hunter-gatherer era. However, the oldest written evidence of the use of herbal medicine dates back to 2800 BCE, where there was found a writing by Shennong in the Pen T'sao of the different actions of different herbs.
History of the use of medicinal mushrooms
That medicinal mushrooms have a tremendously long history of use was confirmed by the discovery of "Ötzi," the glacial mummy.
This was a Neolithic-era human being who had been preserved almost completely intact by the freezing cold of the glacier.
Because the mummy was so well preserved, it was also easy to see what kind of luggage Ötzi was carrying with him: one of the things he carried was a mushroom!
Which is now known for its antibiotic, anti-parasitic and antiviral properties.
Fermented medicinal mushrooms + herbs
Living Nutrition uses a carefully selected fermentation process for this 'Fermented Blends' line that naturally increases the bioavailability of the medicinal mushrooms and herbs.
After the fermentation process, the organic medicinal mushrooms and herbs are carefully freeze-dried to ensure that all of the unique ingredients remain intact.
After this, the blend is encapsulated in organic, vegan tapioca capsules. Thus, this supplement is 100% organic both inside and out.
Living culture symbiotics with Kefir and Kombucha
The products from Living Nutrition are made of a combination of the two most superior fermentation processes: Kefir, made from fermented soy milk and Kombucha, made from fermented tea. This form of fermentation is also known as "symbiotics". The following differences are found between symbiotics and single probiotics:
Are grown synthetically in laboratories
Naturally fermented from plants
Only isolated bacterial species
More than 100 balanced and evolved bacterial species
Attaches to maltodextrin, a form of sugar, to stabilize
Attaches to natural enzymes and peptides
Contains no digestive nutrients
Rich in nutrients for digestion
Prebiotic sugars or fiber added
Wide range of natural prebiotics
Many naked, exposed bacteria
A complete, living ecosystem in harmony with the digestive microbiome
Fermented Soy Milk in Living Nutrition
Living Nutriton uses fermented soy milk for the Kefir fermentation process. In fact, sprouted soybeans contain a host of exceptional properties, including a unique balance of nutrients such as amino acids and polyphenols.
After the fermentation process, these nutrients form compounds that provide wonderful support for the digestive process, the healing of tissues and for creating the optimal environment for a healthy microbiome in the intestines.

Health benefits of Lion's Mane
Scientific research suggests that Lion's Mane (LINK TO BLOG) contains two important active ingredients:
Health benefits of herbs
- Holy basil
This herb is known for its adaptogenic properties. This means that it contains properties that help the body and mind adapt during times of stress (both physical and mental) in order to regain natural homeostasis.
- Gotu Kola
Gotu Kola is thought to contain antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, antidepressant and memory enhancing properties.
- Matcha tea
Matcha contains many powerful antioxidants called catechins. It also contains an important active flavonoid, epigallocatechin gallate, which along with the catechins may contribute to normal concentration and focus.
Fermentation health benefits
Research suggests that regular consumption of fermented foods may reduce the risk of certain cancers, it may support the immune system, it may protect the health of the gastrointestinal tract and urinary tract, and it may alleviate symptoms of Crohn's disease and irritable bowel syndrome.

Probiotics and prebiotics
The fermentation process significantly increases the level of nutrients which are, in this way, pre-digested into a bioavailable form. New nutrients are thereby created together with a wide range of metabolic and digestive enzymes, which are also sometimes called probiotics or prebiotics.
