to five times a day. Download our usage

What's The Difference Between PRO EM-1, EM-1, and Renew Life Probiotics?
PRO EM-1 is similar to EM-1 but is specifically designed for daily human consumption where EM-1 is designed for a variety of
applications, especially animal husbandry, agricultural, and environmental applications. PRO EM-1 is made with food grade
ingredients in an FDA-approved human food grade facility, and it is fermented with the addition of
honey† and aloe while leaving out the yeast lactobacillus delbrueckii which gives
a sour vinegar taste.
EM-1 is not made in a food grade facility but must be made in sanitary conditions to avoid contamination of the culture. Some
people use the EM-1 to make fermented superfood brews and a probiotic for daily consumption for animals and plants to save
significant amounts of money over buying probiotics, plant foods, or soil inoculants.
The Renew Life probiotics we sell are for human consumption and have a different set of probiotic strains and a much higher
concentration per dose, making them the most effective probiotic when cleansing or aiding digestive issues, they just don't have
as wide a range of uses as EM-1. Ken Rohla uses both EM probiotics and Renew Life when cleansing.
Store in a closed container at room temperature out of direct sunlight. Do not refrigerate, freeze, or heat above 115° Fahrenheit
(46° C); this is a live culture and refrigeration or excessive heat will reduce live bacteria count more quickly over time. Do not
use in hot liquids. EM-1 is best if used before “Best used by” date on product, but the culture may be "activated" to grow
more microbes by adding 3 tablespoons of organic blackstrap molasses per quart of EM-1 and mixing thoroughly. If activated, leave
bottle cap slightly loose, enough to allow fermentation gas to escape.
It is okay if it EM-1 has some whitish flakes on the top surface or sediment on the bottom of the bottle, these are harmless by-products
† Notes on molasses and honey: both of these sugars are used to grow the microbes during fermentation. For people concerned about
glycemic indexes, diabetes, or are trying to avoid sugar, the sugars are fully digested by the microbes and will not cause blood sugar
spikes nor will the product increase any other sugar-related issues. If you are on a diet that is trying to avoid sugars, there is no
need to be concerned with these sugars being used as ingredients since there are no sugars present in the finished product after
