Tribute to Professor Earl Owen.

Progurt Team - Monday, June 23, 2014

Progurt acknowledges the support of Professor Earl Owen – from Robert Beson of Progurt.

The Probiotics Institute gives tribute to Professor Earl Ronald Owen AO, Legion d’Honneur, who sadly passed away on 22nd May in Sydney Australia.

Prof. Earl Owen, acknowledged world pioneer of microsurgery, delighted in offering new and better ways of dealing with illness and disease and advance human endeavor through his training of doctors from all parts of the world.

We at Progurt are grateful for the encouragement and support given by Prof Earl Owen in our early years of research and development and his recommendation of the benefits of PROGURT for Immune Health.

Probiotics prevent deadly complications of liver disease.

A new study published in Clinical Gastroenterology and Hepatology, the official clinical practice journal of the American Gastroenterological Association showed that “therapeutic and viable” probiotics are effective in preventing hepatic encephalopathy, a deterioration of brain function, in patients with cirrhosis of the liver.

Up to 45% of patients with cirrhosis of the liver develop hepatic encephalopathy, a loss of brain function that occurs when the liver is unable to remove toxins from the blood. Prognosis is poor, with a 58% mortality rate at one year, and a 77% mortality rate at three years.

Therapeutic probiotics were shown to offer safe and effective treatment for these patients.

“The microbial communities that reside in the human gut and their impact on human health and disease are one of the most exciting and promising areas of research today.” (The American Gastroenterological Association).

Progurt strains show 120 times more benefit to humans than another therapeutic probiotic.

Progurt Team - Monday, June 16, 2014

The power of any probiotic to prevent or reduce illness is limited to its viable CFU (colony forming unit) count - which should be stated on the label of any commercially available probiotic.

According to the Japanese Association of Functional Foods, a probiotic should have a minimum concentration of 1 billion microorganisms, to be consumed daily, for therapeutic effects.

Laboratory microbial testing confirms Progurt has 120 times more beneficial bacteria than 1 billion microorganisms.

When consumed daily, Progurt has 120 times more benefit for humans than another “therapeutic” probiotic.

Our Gut Bacteria May Predict Our Lifelong Health

Progurt Team - Thursday, June 05, 2014

Progurt is one of the few probiotic foods able to categorically quantify the density of its viable bacteria. One Progurt sachet = 1 trillion plus (1,000 billion plus) CFU (colony forming units).

But why consider consuming such a powerful probiotic?

Recent published studies further suggest that Autism, Allergies, Asthma, Inflammatory Bowel disease, Diabetes and Obesity are just a few of the conditions now thought to be at least partly tied to the health of our gut bacteria (our microbiome), which are integral to human processes such as digestion, neural and hormonal signalling and guarding against toxic chemicals.

According to Dr. Martin Blaser, director of the Human Microbiome Program at New York University and author of the new book Missing Microbes:

“Caesarean sections, formula feeding, antibiotics taken during pregnancy, antibiotics prescribed to young children, antibiotics fed to the animals we eat, antimicrobial products and the widespread use of industrial chemicals… could permanently alter the maturing microbiome and derail the proper development of everything from the immune system to the brain.
