Tegan Martin in Top 10 at Miss Univers Pageant Final.

Progurt Team - Tuesday, February 10, 2015
Congratulations Tegan. We are all so very proud of you.

Tegan Martin, Miss Universe Australia 2014, reached the top 10 finalists in the finals of the Miss Universe Pageant on January 28 in Florida.

Tegan, 22, will return to university in Australia to complete her studies in Nutritional Medicine, but for now she is taking a break enjoying her time in the United States and the Bahamas.

Tegan, humble as always, said that she was ecstatic to share the stage with “such beautiful, talented and inspirational women from all over the world.”

She also thanked everyone who was part of her journey. ‘‘I am so excited that after today I will be travelling America then returning to Australia to keep working hard towards my goals. “

Bravo Tegan.

Gut Bacteria: The Microbes We Simply Cannot Live Without.

Progurt Team - Friday, February 06, 2015

Imagine a living being whose gastrointestinal tract alone contains 100 000 billion bacteria from over 500 bacterial species, secretes at least 20 neurotransmitters and produces 70-85% of their immune cells.(1)
Imagination is not required – that being is you, your family, your friends, your clients, your patients – a single human being. We have evolved into superorganisms whose gastrointestinal tract has its own immense microbial community of bacteria viruses, fungi and many more- the gut microbiota – and with our cells estimated to be 10% human, 90% bacteria, we are more bacteria than human. (2)
Additionally, the microbial community in the human large intestine (colon) has the greatest number of microbes, ‘…and represents the most densely populated and biodiverse ecosystem on earth.’ (3)
Sharing a symbiotic relationship with this vast community is critical for human function. For so long though we have known little about the world within us and the effect it has on our health and wellbeing. Fortunately, research methods are developing rapidly and with new technology we have identified, characterised, established functions and discovered new links between many body organs and systems and the gut, including the nervous system and the brain. The human microbiota has now become so important with its wide range of functions that researchers are calling it the ‘forgotten organ’. (4)
This hidden population exists for our survival, but we are blissfully unaware of their activities and the benefits they provide every second of the day. Understanding the bacteria that predominate in the gut and their importance means we can nurture, heal and promote their growth and survival for our own beneficial gains.

Magnease and Good Health

Progurt Team - Thursday, February 05, 2015

Magnease is offered as an adjunct to Progurt’s powerful human-strains probiotic because it is regarded with probiotics as one of our most important supplements for body and brain health. Progurt has been developed as a powerful microbial food to restore and maintain a healthy body and a healthy mind; that is, to offer a pathway to intestinal as well as extra-intestinal health, including neurological well-being.

The Probiotics Institute’s goal is to improve the integrity of the human gut to improve and maintain the best of health. Our birth, Western diet, environment and lifestyle have all compromised our essential for good health gut bacteria.

Research has also indicated that as many as 80% of people in Western countries are magnesium deficient. A highly absorbable form of Magnesium has been shown to support the immune system, regulate blood pressure, strengthen muscles and bones and support cardiac and brain function.

The US National Institute of Health published the following on its website:

"Magnesium is needed for more than 300 biochemical reactions in the body. It helps maintain normal muscle and nerve function, keeps heart rhythm steady, supports a healthy immune system, and keeps bones strong. Magnesium also helps regulate blood sugar levels, promotes normal blood pressure, and is known to be involved in energy metabolism and protein synthesis. There is an increased interest in the role of magnesium in preventing and managing disorders such as hypertension, cardiovascular disease, and diabetes."
