About living nutrition
Living Nutrition is a small UK company founded in 2014 by nutritional therapist Graham Botfield. The basis of all our products is a special kefir-kombucha fermentation process we apply to a variety of organic herbs and foods. As leaders in a new paradigm of plant-based nutrition, we are dedicated to the creation of uniquely active, living supplements that work in harmony with the body to create vibrant health.
Our primary mission is simple: to develop the most effective natural food supplements possible. We aim to be leaders in the field of fermented nutrition through our ongoing research and development. Alongside our own work we hope to educate consumers and professionals in the health industry and various other interests in this important area of nutrition.
Ultimately, we aim to inspire a renewed trust in the wisdom of nature as the foundation for an effective approach to restore human health and vitality.
‘There is nothing more invigorating for the soul than opening your eyes to the fresh dawn of a new day and breathing in what nature has to offer.’
(Graham Botfield, Living Nutrition)
Without compromise: We will never compromise on any aspect of our products. We value our time. We invest in research. We care about your health. Any compromise would put all this to waste.
Nature and traditions: Our inspiration comes from what we observe in nature and the ancient traditions of our forefathers. This is the source of the greatest healing knowledge and wisdom.
Never anything artificial: Many supplements include unlabelled ingredients that have no value to health. All our processes and ingredients at every stage are 100% natural and beneficial.
Full transparency: We have nothing to hide and are excited to share everything we do at Living Nutrition. As sharing helps us to grow, let’s build bridges instead of walls, and maybe we can inspire you along the way.
differences that set us apart from other food supplements. Here are just a few:
This allowed us to introduce some innovations, including using the Flaska system for ‘restructuring’ our incoming water, and some new methods to increase the potency and diversity of the microbes in our fermentation process. In collaboration with research institutions, we were now able to study the effects of our fermentations for various conditions.
Please join us on our journey and learn more about this exciting new paradigm in activated nutrition.

Founder Graham Botfield is a nutritional therapist and a researcher who specialises in the digestive microbiome and on the traditional use of herbs. He has worked with respected supplement brands including New Chapter, whose founder and Master Herbalist Paul Schulick has been a great influence on Graham’s approach to developing nature-inspired food supplements. Alongside an expert microbiologist Graham is continually developing new fermented formulations and researching their benefits.
Graham’s great passion aside from fermentation is education. He uses his research at Living Nutrition to lecture on the benefits of fermented plants on modern-day health conditions.
At Living Nutrition, we continue to be inspired by Graham’s research into creating products that work in harmony with the natural ecology of the body:
From the microcosm within us to the macrocosm around us, intricate design is everywhere in nature. From the precise hexagonal shape of a honeycomb cell to the spiral on a mollusc shell, these geometric patterns reveal an underlying order that is sometimes called ‘Sacred Geometry’. Similar shapes can be found in the human body, as sketched by Leonardo da Vinci.
This principle has inspired our Living Nutrition ranges, which are distinguished by our Flower of Life logo. At its centre sits the Germ of Life, from where all life begins, and in sacred texts it is considered the birthplace of conscious creation.
The conditions must be right for the ‘germ of life’ to flower into its full potential. Our products are designed to help you plant a germ of good health, strengthening your connection to nature and giving your microcosm what it needs for your whole self to flourish.
