TeraGanix, a company based in Texas that develops a line of products using natural technologies, announced its Pro EM-1® Probiotic is now available for purchase on, the world’s largest online retailer.

Since 2010, TeraGanix has been the exclusive marketing partner for Effective Microorganisms® (EM®) products in the continental United States and Canada. The Pro EM-1 Probiotic is the company’s signature product, the first probiotic to hit the market that contains a unique photosynthetic bacteria.

“We are pleased to announce that Pro EM-1 is now available for purchase on,” said Eric Lancaster, Executive Vice President. “ has been an important vehicle for growth for the entire nutritional products industry. We strongly believe that this new sales partnership will help us spread the word more widely than ever before about our Pro EM-1 Probiotic so we can give more people the digestive relief they need.”

Pro EM-1 Probiotic was the first EM® product developed for human consumption. It features a unique blend of three different types of microbes: yeast, lactic acid bacteria and photosynthetic bacteria. These three groups of microbes help people to get a healthier, more balanced immune system and digestive tract, which is important for people who suffer from regular gastrointestinal illnesses or conditions. Additionally, the product guards users against infections, suppresses imbalance-causing pathogens, and gives extra nutrition.

The product is particularly unique because of its manufacturing process. Unlike other probiotics, it is fermented, and therefore retains many of the important metabolites that give it the power to fight off bad bacteria. Because of its microbe diversity and metabolites, Pro EM-1 Probiotic is able to deliver better results than the vast majority of other probiotics on the market despite having lower colony counts.

“We look forward to continuing to build our brand’s name in North America and helping people all over the continent experience better digestive health,” said Lancaster.

Boca Raton, FL (PRWEB)

TeraGanix, a Texas-based company that develops products using authentic, natural technology, announced it has begun expanding its brand reach throughout North America through a variety of new marketing and sales strategies.

Originally named EM America, TeraGanix was re-branded in 2010 and reached an exclusive agreement with EM Research Organization to become the continental United States and Canadian marketing partner for Effective Microorganisms® products. The company is especially known for its Pro EM-1® probiotic, the first probiotic on the market to contain photosynthetic bacteria.

“We are thrilled to be taking the next steps forward as a company to expand our market reach in the United States and Canada,” said Eric Lancaster, Executive VP. “We have made it a priority to push forward with our marketing and reach out to brand new people all over North America who can benefit from our products. We’re very much looking forward to what the future has in store for us.”

Pro EM-1 was the very first Effective Microorganisms® product made for human consumption. It combines three different groups of microbes, including lactic acid bacteria, yeast and photosynthetic bacteria. The result is a healthier, more balanced digestive and immune system, which is particularly helpful to people who regularly suffer from gastrointestinal distress. The product helps fight off infections, suppress pathogens that cause digestive imbalances, and provides extra nutrition.

The manufacturing process of Pro Em-1® is what sets it apart from other similar products on the market. It is fermented, and retains many of the important metabolites that help it fight off bacterial problems in the digestive system. With a diversity of species and metabolites paired with live, non-freeze dried microbes, Pro Em-1® works better than 99 percent of the other probiotic products on the market, even though it contains lower colony counts.

“We are pleased to be able to expand our marketing operations in North America and help more people than ever before find relief from the digestive issues that have been plaguing them,” said Lancaster.

Salmonella Control in Poultry Growing Achieved with Use of Probiotic Formula from TeraGanix, Inc. The USDA confirms TeraGanix all natural liquid probiotic formula controls pathogen salmonella in poultry growing conditions. Peer reviewed research published in the Journal of Applied Poultry Research.

The pathogenic microorganism Salmonella is a concern for all poultry growers. Most food safety approaches utilize disinfectants and harsh chemicals to control pathogenic microorganisms. TeraGanix supplies an all-natural liquid product made of all non-GMO, food grade, GRAS microorganisms as an inoculant in poultry litter to naturally suppress pathogenic microbes right where the birds are grown and live. In broiler production, litter that is left on the floor contains fecal matter. Salmonella species grow in the fecal matter and can become concentrated in the litter that gets stuck on the birds' feet and in their feathers. Between flocks, many growers will windrow (mound up) the litter for 7 to 10 days to heat up the material, hoping to pasteurize the material. However, this is often not effective and also results in increased levels of ammonia gas in the houses.

The team headed by Dr. Sheffield recently published their research in the peer reviewed Journal of Applied Poultry Research. They were able to replicate near complete pathogen suppression using TeraGanix’s liquid bacteria product, Lt1000™. Even though farm practices vary in litter removal, if Lt1000™ is applied with every flock, pathogens can be suppressed regardless of litter management method. Use of Lt1000™ greatly reduces the risk of pathogenic bacteria living among the livestock and possibly reduces the risk of food contamination.

TeraGanix, Inc. is based in Alto, Texas. TeraGanix is the exclusive United States distributor of Effective Microorganisms® products and manufacturer of Lt1000™, a microbial concentrate designed for treatment of poultry litter. Lt1000™ is available only through TeraGanix, Inc.
