About Us

 

Vita Plantae is a unique blend of selected botanicals inspired by an Irish home remedy which has been handed down through generations.  Using a lengthy fermentation process this all natural alternative to conventional medicine, was used to give the body a much-needed boost when suffering from aches, pains, fatigue or when you were simply overwhelmed from the pressures of everyday life. 

Fermented foods are rich in healthy bacteria and help strengthen your body’s immune system as well as protect you from bad bacteria.  As far back as 10,000 years ago our ancestors recognised the benefits of keeping your gut healthy, by eating fermented foods.  After adding prebiotics, vitamins, minerals and all natural ingredients to improve taste, today Vita Plantae can give you probiotic power to reset and maintain your gut health by putting friendly, helpful bacteria back where they belong – in your gut!

Our Drive for Improving Gut Health

Initially a small scale cottage industry set up by Eamon Cullen, and driven by a passion for improving gut health, Vita Plantae is growing rapidly and fast becoming a household name for resetting and maintaining gut health as well as supporting your immune system. 

Vita Plantae contains a powerful mix of Organic wholesome ingredients which have been carefully fermented, nurtured and blended for up to 10 weeks in a specialist kitchen in the foothills of the Mourne Mountains, Rostrevor, Co Down, by ARC Foods. 

We are fully Organic so you can be sure that there are no artificial colourings, flavourings or preservatives added ensuring that the raw foods are not chemically cloned, altered or packed with additives such as caking agents, bulking and coating compounds.

Fermentation Process

We use a specialised food processing technology to nurture good bacteria namely Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium and their various sub strains, which are naturally present in raw foods and which are essential for a healthy digestive system and gut (Microbiome). 

Our lengthy 10 week fermentation process includes creating a mixed culture of yeast and bacteria as well as making our own organic kombucha, a natural antibacterial agent which is rich in probiotics, prebiotics such as Inulin and Fructan, digestive enzymes, vitamin B and antioxidants.

High Concentration of 'The Mother'

There are 6 nutritious ingredients found in Vita Plantae which includes raisins, mixed peel, carrot, blueberries, ginger and parsley.  We then add a special mix of 19 botanicals to boost the mineral, vitamin, prebiotic and probiotic count gained from every spoonful of Vita Plantae. 

This special blend, includes a high concentration of ‘the mother’, which consists of dozens of strains of good bacteria.  It can be easily absorbed by the body, helping you get the most out of the food you eat as well as improving and maintaining overall gut health.

Vita Plantae is naturally beneficial and a super source of probiotic power!
