Beautiful Healthy Babies and Progurt

Progurt Team - Tuesday, December 16, 2014

Beautiful healthy babies are no accident, according to our favorite author and expert in the field of women’s reproductive health, Jan Roberts.

Jan Roberts, author, clinical nutritionist, pharmacist and parent has spent the past two decades promoting preconception health care to health professionals, prospective parents and students throughout Australia, New Zealand and the United States.

Ms Roberts recommends: “ The mother must ensure her own gut health well before conception. Only then can she hope to establish the healthiest possible gut population in her child, which should be healthily well-established by age 2-3 years. It also makes sense that the best probiotic for the job is one that contains multiple human strains, and that those strains are the most fragile ones, those most easily destroyed by modern diets and lifestyles. Progurt ... for the whole family, 15 billion good bacteria in one teaspoonful of a yogurt you simply make at home.”

We at Progurt congratulate Jan Roberts for her invaluable contribution women’s reproductive health.

Probiotics as a therapeutic treatment for Osteoporosis.

Progurt Team - Monday, December 08, 2014

Among the numerous positive effects of probiotic microorganisms and prebiotic carbohydrates observed in clinical studies some are of specific relevance to female health.

Besides the therapeutic applications of probiotic bacteria in order to maintain a balanced intestinal and urogenital flora, as well as in the case of irritable bowel syndrome, constipation and urogenital tract infections, further aspects are the promotion of bone health and osteoporosis prevention. Some further conditions are, namely anorexia nervosa, the premenstrual syndrome as well as prevention or alleviation of climacteric and menopausal disorders.

A recent study in humans showed a positive effect of probiotic on bone metabolism and bone mass density. Most of the investigated bacteria were Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium . The positive results of the probiotics were supported by the high content of dietary calcium and the high amounts of supplemented probiotics. Some of the principal mechanisms include (1) increasing mineral solubility due to production of short chain fatty acids; (2) producing phytase enzyme by bacteria to overcome the effect of mineral depressed by phytate; (3) reducing intestinal inflammation followed by increasing bone mass density; (4) hydrolysing glycoside bond food in the intestines by Lactobacillus and Bifidobacteria. These mechanisms lead to increase bioavailability of the minerals.
