Prebiotics and human health.

Progurt Team - Wednesday, April 16, 2014

Prebiotics benefit to human health.

Freshly pressed juices, such as the delicious Juice Cleanses offered by Café Gratitude LA or Lucky You Juice Sydney act as a prebiotic to confer a health benefit when consumed with a sachet of powerful multi-human strain probiotic Progurt.

Progurt also offers its own prebiotic to target the growth of its probiotic bacteria in the gastro-intestinal tract.

Japanese researchers in the 1990’s were the first to recognize that prebiotics. essentially ‘non-digestible’ oligosaccharides, stimulate the growth of probiotic or beneficial bacteria in the human gut.

Probiotics to help prevent weight gain in children and adolescents.

Progurt Team - Monday, April 07, 2014

Recent epidemiologic studies have detected a possible link between antibiotic use in childhood and weight gain -- with disruption to the normal gut microbiota considered the most likely cause.

The spotlight has fallen on the role of the gut microbiota in normal growth and development, with scientists now concerned that altering the microbial balance in the gut with antibiotics may lead to weight gain. Low doses of antibiotics have been used for decades in the agricultural industry to promote weight gain in farm animals, and researchers have reported similar changes in body fat and tissue composition in laboratory animals given low-dose antibiotics. Studies are currently underway using sub-therapeutic antibiotic treatment as a tool to disrupt the microbial ecosystem and alter host body composition with the aim of identifying organisms within the microbiota that could either promote or protect against obesity.
