  • Michio Kushi's Fermented Superfood Complex with preB from Swanson Ultra

  • World's 1st macrobiotic supplement, featuring 55 fermented whole foods

  • Bursting with natural enzymes and nutrients to promote energy and vitality

Michio Kushi's Fermented Superfood Complex with PreB® is one of those special supplements that only come along once every few years. It is the world's first and only macrobiotic supplement. Swanson Health Products collaborated directly with Michio Kushi, the founding father of the Macrobiotic Movement here in the United States in the 1960s. Together with Mr. Kushi, we developed the finest macrobiotic formula, featuring 55 fermented whole foods that are bursting with natural enzymes and nutrients to promote energy and vitality.

The term "macrobiotic" was first used by Hippocrates, and it means "great life" or "long life" in Greek. He used the word to describe people who were healthy and lived long. Developer of Fermented Superfood Complex Michio Kushi believes macrobiotics is an approach to life, or a philosophy, rather than a "diet." Macrobiotics emphasizes whole cereals, grains, legumes, vegetables, seaweed, fermented foods and fruits combined into meals according to the principle of balance known as yin and yang.

According to Mr. Kushi, "Eating fermented food nourishes the good bacteria in the intestines and has a cleansing effect within the gastrointestinal system. Fermented foods help good bacteria establish themselves and proliferate over time, providing long-lasting effects."

The exclusive blend of whole foods in our Fermented Superfood Complex is called preB®. Mr. Kushi developed preB® as a complete nutritional complex composed entirely of fermented foods, containing over 50 types of the world's healthiest plants and foods. These are combined and fermented using natural yeast, local bacteria and the miraculous water that gushes from the springs on the ANEW Farm in southern Brazil. The result is a totally unique, all-natural fermented food formula that concentrates all of the Kushi Macrobiotic principles into one convenient supplement for total health and wellness.

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 60 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love This Product When I take this I can tell a difference within days. This is my second bottle and I won't let myself run out this time. HUGE DIFFERENCE while taking it April 27, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Superb I'm a 90 year old, female who has less than good eating habits. I've been taking this product for several years and absolutely know it fills in the nutritional blanks for me. I keep it refrigerated because some of the capsules do leak if left at room temperature. I would never miss a day of taking this. February 3, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great way to add fermented foods into my diet I learned about Michio Kushi after getting into macrobiotics. This product contains a large variety of foods and is a convenient way to add all-important fermented fruits and veggies into my diet. I can't say for sure that there is a cause/effect relationship because I take many products, but my hair is more shiny since starting this 3 months ago. I have one issue with the formula: why is it necessary to add sugar/honey to a veggie cap? September 18, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best supplement ever! I have been taking this for about 3 years and I don't want to run out because the one time that I did run out I felt draggy, tired and just not myself. It's hard to explain exactly how this helps me, but it gives me a sense of well being. I gave 4 leaves on Convenience because the some of the capsules do leak, I wish they would fix that. August 27, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Leaky Mess! I felt the product itself was good but the capsules leak brown stuff & are gummy & messy. You guys usually do much better than this! February 23, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Complete Veggie/Fruit supplement. I started using this product when it first came out. I was impressed by the video showing how they are made and the quality ingredients that go into them. These supplements are a permanent part of our daily vitamin / supplement intake. We really benefit from the science that went into this product. November 22, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Superfoods in a pill! My wife and I are trying this as a way to improve our health, as we both need/want to work on that. I take a lot of supplements, so I cannot plainly tell you how this is working yet. Also, I have only just started taking this, so I will base my review on what I have seen. Wow, these pills have 55 foods in every pill! When I first looked at them, I was fascinated at how thee pills were this rich, dark color. I am hoping that is an indicator of a very healthy supplement. Every bottle contains a 30-day supply at the suggested dose in a light-protective brown plastic bottle. Final thoughts: I am very optimistic that this supplement could be one of the best to take. The price seems right, too. Thank-you Mr. Kushi and Lee Swanson! :) September 5, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Easy Super Foods I am on the go a lot and don't have time to eat all the green veges I need. I found this product to especially good for people who don't have time to cook or the desire to do so. February 16, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Quality Just to say I have been using the product for a little over 2 weeks, and it is giving me lots of energy throughout the whole day, I take two capsules with breakfast, and one in the mid afternoon, and I feel energetic all day till almost bedtime. January 21, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Colon Health Have been using this product for over a year. I feel satisfied that Dr. Kushi's product gives excellent colon health. Many foods that are produced in a pristine manner to help protect the health of the colon. One important product taking 3 pills per day. December 21, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fermented Foods Have been wanting to get more fermented foods in my diet. While I do notice a little bit with this supplement, adding real whole fermented foods does much more for my insides. October 26, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by wow Love this. Even my husband commented on how shiny my hair had become after just 4 days. I have been looking for a superfood for a while, and have decided to use this. Thanks! September 26, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Just what I was looking for... I have had an interest in fermented foods for a long time. I have tried eating fermented foods; but this product is more convenient and contains a large variety.of fermented items. July 29, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fermented Some source of enzyme for the body, Give energy and helps the overall mood and health. Taste good even directly chew on. June 14, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Need more veggies? What a great way to get ore veggies without the taste of a green powder, which can be a bit harsh-and they are fermented! June 14, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by fermented me I read a product review in the catalog. It sounded ''right'' for me. I have no specific data as to why. But my overall sense of health is good now. March 3, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Seem to give me energy Makes sure I get the vitamins I need in my body when I don't have an opportunity to eat 5-7 servings of vegtables a day. Since I am a vegetarian it is important that I receive the necessary nutirent in my body. February 14, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Overall great product I ordered this because I'm trying to get into healthier eating, living, etc. These capsules help me to feel a bit better than I usually do, health wise. One time I opened a capsule & just sucked out the juice. It tasted good, and right away I felt very aware of everything, as if I just woke up. Very interesting. I thought I would notice a difference in my digestive system but I don't believe I have. Perhaps I need to try a different product for that. For overall health, this product is great and definitely worth a try. January 12, 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by would be better, if it was not fermented The first couple of days I enjoyed chewing these veggie caps and letting them dissolve in my mouth. At the same time, I noticed I began to sneeze more frequently than normal. I must be allergic to either the yeast or something else in the fermentation process. In my opinion, Mr. Kushi should have left the 55 fruits and vegetables alone, and not tamper with nature. November 26, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Super-Feeding the Body Michio Kushi's Fermented Superfood Complex with preB is a convenient way to supplement the diet with an extremely nutritious encapsulated food that is easy-to-swallow and assimilate. July 5, 2012
Rated 3 out of 5 by Unexpected side effect I don't know if its just me but whenever I took this supplement I felt sleepier than usual. For a week I was feeling tired most of the time and couldn't figure out why. Then my brother told me it was the supplement. June 20, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by GREAT Taking this supplement gives me a noticeable boost in energy and mood. I plan to continue taking it for a long time! June 7, 2012
