The Autism Enigma.

Progurt Team - Tuesday, August 28, 2012

We at Progurt have long been beating the drum about the link between Autism and gut dysbiosis or an imbalance of unfriendly or bad gut bacteria compared to friendly or good gut bacteria. As there are more cells in the human gut than there are cells in the entire human body, certain special species of bacteria have to predominate to keep us healthy physically and mentally.

We are therefore pleased to recommend viewing the ABC’s “The Autism Enigma”, aired on ABC television’s Four Corners last night (August 27, 2012).

Today, one in 90 children in the United States is being diagnosed with Autism, compared to one in 10,000 children 50 years ago.  More...

Probiotics in the treatment of fatty liver diseases.

Progurt Team - Friday, August 24, 2012

Interactions between the gut, the liver, and the immune system play an important role in liver diseases. Altered intestinal bacterial flora and gut-associated endotoxemia are increasingly recognized as critical components in both nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) and alcoholic liver disease (ALD). Fatty liver disease can be mild or could progress to cirrhosis or liver cancer.

Fatty liver disease has risen in Western countries along with obesity and diabetes and encompasses people who drink little or no alcohol. Fatty liver disease is typically diagnosed in people who are overweight, diabetic or pre-diabetic and who have elevated cholesterol and triglyceride levels. A person is considered to have a fatty liver when the fat makes up at least 10 percent of his or her liver.

Can Probiotics and Antibiotics be taken together?

Progurt Team - Friday, August 17, 2012

The use of probiotics in conjunction with antibiotics, will act to reduce the effects of the dysbiosis caused by the antibiotics, and maximise the benefits of the probiotic directly in the gut on competitive exclusion and immune stimulation.

It is advisable however to stagger the administration of the antibiotic and probiotic such that the probiotic is administered at least three hours after the antibiotic dose, where possible, otherwise the antibiotic may reduce the efficacy of the probiotic microorganisms. It is important to note that the reverse is not true: probiotics will not cause a reduction in efficacy or effectiveness of the antibiotic.

Keep the administration of the probiotic for at least one week following the completion of the antibiotic course.

Congratulations - To all London Olympic 2012 Athletes.

Progurt Team - Friday, August 10, 2012

Everyone at Progurt takes this opportunity to add our congratulations to the cheers for all of the Olympic athletes from all countries competing at the London Olympics.

It is often overlooked that a great many of these athletes have overcome great personal adversity just to be able to train and then reach their peak performance which has resulted in their competing in London this summer.

Whilst new research shows that the Gastro Intestinal Tract must be considered when aiming to achieve peak fitness in sports ‘recovery’ nutrition past studies have demonstrated specific probiotic strains to reduce the frequency of upper respiratory tract infections in athletes2, and to effectively improve gastrointestinal integrity.  More...
