Effective Microbes @ EM

Effective Microorganisms, or EM is one of the most popular microbial technologies being used worldwide now. EM products have been on the market since 1983 in Japan, and can be found in local home center stores.

EM comes in a liquid form and consists of naturally-occurring beneficial microorganisms. These microorganisms in EM can easily be classified into three major groups: lactic acid bacteria (commonly found in dairy products), yeast (e.g. bread, beer), and phototrophic bacteria.

Throughout the world, EM applications are made in the farming, livestock, environmental clean-up (polluted waterways, lakes and lagoons), and health industries.

What EM is not
The microbes in EM are not harmful, pathogenic, genetically-engineered/modified (GMO), nor chemically-synthesized. Neither is EM a drug or fertilizer.

EM & The Environment

EM can make the environment better.

EM environmental applications throughout the world have included:

  • Converting kitchen garbage into nutrient-enriched compost
  • Cleaning polluted waterways, lakes and lagoons
  • Maintaining and operating septic systems, municipal wastewater treatment plants, and landfills/dump sites
  • Producing nutritient-rich soil

Microbiology & Health

Introduction of EM to health application

Microorganisms are found everywhere in the world. These highly adaptive microbes play an important role in the balance of the earth's eco-system, including the physical well-being of human beings.

Microbes possess the power of fermentation, and their uses are apparent in many aspects of our lives. Miso (soybean paste), soy sauce, wine, whiskey, cheese, natto (fermented soybeans) and bread, for example, are all produced with the use of the microbes. These products have caught people's attention for their health benefits.

Also, microbes themselves naturally exist in our bodies. It is a fact that microbes in our intestines help digestion, as well as help keep our bodies healthy.

In addition, the fermentation and antioxidant function of EM has been used to produce unique EM products, such as EM-X (a rice bran liquid dietary supplement) and EM Salt for human consumption.

A more recent and promising direction on the research of EM applications focuses on preventive medicine as an alternative to conventional medical treatment.

Working in the office, surfing the web and found this cute representable picture.
It showed that EM can provide the nature and human a lot of benefits and that's why I wanna share with you all!

Hence, go for adequate consumption of EM for a better you!


  1. wakaka, they make the EM so cute.
    keke, then we can consume maciam Yakult or Vitagen liao.

  2. Yeap ;p
    Yakult/Vitagen's EM is
    Lactic Acid bacteria grp

  3. haha..good...anyway, dunno we can make ourselves, or obtain from commercial..haha

  4. Haha, perhaps we can extract our own strand of EM from our excretion, kekeke

  5. [cklim]
    Yes there is

    Japan already use this EM Technique to produce the bio-fertilizer and beneficial drinks and food for animals and us,human

    There are enzymes drink available which improve our health.
    Unluckily due to our Malaysia's "Bacteria Law", this EM technique is still not widespread in Malaysia.

    I believe most of them would be E. coli. Haha!
