Progurt during pregnancy and breast-feeding for immune system protection.

Progurt Team - Monday, March 31, 2014

Progurt can be taken by mothers during pregnancy or breast-feeding to help promote infant immune health. Progurt has 1 trillion (1000 billion) CFU capability per Sachet, 10 times more capability than a baseline probiotic. And children as young as 3 years old can take Progurt incubated with milk or a sachet in juice or water; recommended after antibiotics to help re-establish a healthy balance of gut bacteria and antibodies.

During the first few weeks of life, a baby’s immune system is almost entirely dependent on the mother’s breast-milk for immune protection from its environment. Progurt may be taken as a supplement to breast-feeding and if the mother has had antibiotics or had her baby by Cesarean section, which may disturb the development of the child’s gut bacteria for up to 6 months..

Breast-feeding during the first weeks and months of life is now recognized as an important strategy to ensure a healthy balance of good bacteria in an infant’s gut.

The World Health Organization recommends exclusive breastfeeding for at least 6 months to promote health. Additionally, the nutritional committees from the American Academy of Pediatrics, Euopean Society for Pediatric Allergology and Clinical Immunology, & the European Society for Pediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology, and Nutrition ALL recommend exclusive breastfeeding for food allergy prevention.

Probiotic bacteria the Immune system and Health versus Disease.

Progurt Team - Thursday, March 27, 2014

A healthy Immune system is essential for good health and to stop the onset of a range of diseases. The chronic inflammation linked to most of the diseases that kill people in the developed world today -- heart disease, cancer, diabetes -- may begin with dysfunctional gut microbiota.

Gut bacteria plays a crucial role in the maturation of a proper immune system, according to Karen Guillemin, PH.D researcher with the Institute of Molecular Biology at the University of Oregon.

"Asked about their immune system, most people might think of white blood cells, lymph glands or vaccines," said Dr. Natalia Shulzhenko, author of a new report in Clinical Reviews in Allergy and Immunology, and assistant professor and physician in the OSU Department of Biomedical Sciences. "They would be surprised that's not where most of the action is. Our intestines contain more immune cells than the entire rest of our body.

Autism Linked to Lower Levels of Gut Bacteria

Progurt Team - Wednesday, March 12, 2014

In a small recent study, investigators at Arizona State University in Tempe found that autistic children had significantly fewer types of 3 critical types of gut bacteria compared with normal control individuals.

Children with autism appear to have distinctly different levels of intestinal flora, which may increase their vulnerability to pathogenic bacteria and perhaps play a role in autism pathogenesis, new research suggests.

"We demonstrated that autism is closely associated with a distinct gut microflora that can be characterized by reduced richness and diversity as well as by altered composition and structure of microbial community," wrote the authors, led by Rosa Krajmalnik-Brown, PhD.
