About living nutrition

Living Nutrition is a small UK company founded in 2014 by nutritional therapist Graham Botfield. Everything about us—our philosophy, our influences and our work, right to our core—is in synergy with nature.

The foundation of all our products is a specially developed kefir-kombucha fermentation process, which we apply to organic herbs and foods to create a living nutrition. Everything is handmade in our custom-built laboratory and personally overseen to ensure our plant-based products develop into their optimally vital state.

Our Mission

As leaders in a new paradigm of plant-based fermented nutrition, we create uniquely active supplements that work in harmony with the body to support vibrant health. Because we always hold ourselves to the highest standards, we have produced a range of products that have no equal in terms of living vitality and nutrient abundance.

Our principles

Vitality Through Nature: Every ingredient and process is 100% natural. Nature is always our guiding inspiration, connecting us to a greater understanding of the principles of balance and vitality that inform our work. Only by adhering completely to nature’s principles can we achieve perfect results.

Without Compromise: We create with consciousness and always strive for perfection. We guarantee never to cut corners or compromise this approach for any reason. We understand what is at stake: your health and our values.

Research-Based: At our state-of-the-art research and development centre at Dunsfold Park in Surrey we analyse our products and study their effects. It is truly wonderful to observe the results and the rewards our efforts continue to produce.

Educate and Inspire: We are providing an education platform for this key area in fermented nutrition, including research and regular webinars. Through our shared research we aim to inspire a renewed trust and understanding of nature as the essential foundation of human health. Find out more by joining our social media or contact us.

Our founder

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:

If we change our approach to medicine from one of fighting disease to one of creating health, we will move away from mega-dosing inert nutrients towards the more subtle healing elements found within nature. Then we will value plants for the native intelligence they hold, one which delivers information to our many cellular senses to encourage healing. Fermentation is nature’s alchemy, evolving plants to a higher level of vitality and nutrition and creating compounds that communicate balance and harmony to our bodies at every level.

OUR FERMENTATION PROCESS

STEP 3

We add the inoculum to our organic herbs and foods and ferment in small 10 ltr batches under optimal conditions

STEP 4

After many weeks of care including daily stirring and testing, the fermentation is finally completed.

STEP 2

We create a highly concentrated and active inoculum using a hybrid of organic water kefir grains and organic kombucha.

STEP 5

We then carefully freeze-dry our ferments to remove all water, and preserve all the delicate nutrients, enzymes and microbes.

STEP 1

We choose only the freshest organic ingredients (biodynamic, where possible). Also our water is double filtered and restructured using a specialised Flaska system.

STEP 6

Finally we encapsulate the finished product in an organic plant based capsule and place in an amber glass bottle and 100% plastic free packaging.
