Kidney Disease and Probiotics.

Progurt Team - Monday, September 29, 2014

Good bacteria in the digestive tract will consume nitrogenous waste products. Otherwise, this job belongs to the kidneys.

A clinical trial is now being undertaken using Probiotics to treat kidney disease. by Dr Katrina Campbell is a senior research Fellow at Princess Alexandra Hospital, Brisbane, Australia.

In the United States, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) found that chronic kidney disease affects approximately 17% of adults 20 years and older. It is the ninth leading cause of death in the United States.

Probiotics and Heart Disease

Progurt Team - Wednesday, September 03, 2014

Progurt initiates balance of gut flora - improving digestion, nutrition, absorption and nutritional support to every living cell in your body. But researchers are now finding that by keeping high levels of beneficial bacteria thriving in the intestines, heart-disease-causing microbes can be kept at bay.

Cardiologist, Dr Chauncey Crandall considers probiotics a primary weapon in the fight against heart disease.

The discovery of the heart disease-causing bacteria might explain why about half of those who die of sudden heart attacks have no known risk factors for heart disease, like high blood pressure, cholesterol, or diabetes, he noted.

Sleep and Progurt

Progurt Team - Monday, August 25, 2014

Birds are the only non-mammalian group to engage in REM sleep and may generally sleep for as many hours as humans depending upon their age. In a University of Lausanne study of baby barn owls, their sleep showed human awake-like activity, their eyes remained closed and their heads nodded slowly.

Delightful sleep similarities to humans; but there is one striking difference. Sleep deprivation. Migratory birds may fly up to 19 days without sleep. Birds in their natural environment don’t show the same cognitive and physical impairments suffered by humans when ‘deprived’ of sleep.

According to the Harvard Women’s Health Watch, human sleep deprivation causes: 1. Learning and memory impairment. 2. Weight gain: by altering levels of hormones that affect appetite. 3. Irritability, impatience, inability to concentrate, and moodiness. 4. Cardiovascular health: increased stress hormone levels, and irregular heartbeat. 5. Immune function alteration, leading to diseases.  More...

Good gut bacteria to fight obesity.

Progurt Team - Monday, August 04, 2014

"Manipulation of intestinal bacteria could offer a new approach to manage obesity and type 2 diabetes." (Dr. Yalcin Basaran, endocrinologist at the June 2014 annual joint meeting of the International Society of Endocrinology and the Endocrine Society in Chicago.)

Obese people and those with type 2 diabetes have lower levels of common types of "good" intestinal bacteria than healthy people, Dr Basaran’s study reveals.

"Manipulation of intestinal bacteria could offer a new approach to manage obesity and type 2 diabetes," Dr Basaran added. The new study included 27 severely obese adults, 26 adults newly diagnosed with diabetes, and a "control group" of 28 healthy adults. All of the participants were aged 18 to 65 and none had taken antibiotics within the past three months (antibiotics can alter intestinal bacteria). The obese and diabetic adults had considerably lower levels of the most common types of gut bacteria than those in the control group, the investigators found. These levels were about 4 percent to 12.5 percent lower in the obese patients, and 10 percent to 11.5 percent lower in the diabetes patients.

We are married to our gut bacteria.

Progurt Team - Tuesday, July 22, 2014

“We are not just on friendly terms with our gut bacteria – we are married to them - colonised from birth and potentially in utero. For richer for poorer, in sickness and in health. Our relationship with our microbiota lasts a lifetime. The highest density of and diversity in the microorgansims is in our gut, which is home to trillions of bacteria. The past few years has seen a surge in research into the association between the gut microbiota and our health, with ever growing number of disorders linked to dysbiosis of our gut microbiota, including gastrointestinal disease, caner, cardiovascular disease and obesity. “ Katrina Ray, Acting Chief Editor of Nature of Nature Reviews Gastroenterology & Hepatology.

The Best Probiotic is one that contains Fragile Human and Missing Strains.

Progurt Team - Thursday, July 17, 2014

The Best Probiotic is one that contains Fragile, Human and Missing Strains.

Professor Earl Owen, pioneer of microsurgery and champion of Progurt probiotic wrote about the need to replenish our gut with fragile, missing strains of bacteria destroyed by modern Western diet and lifestyle.

Dr Martin Blaser, an expert on the human microbiome and former director of the Infectious Diseases Society of America also speculates that the overuse of antibiotics, cesarean section births and modern medicines has killed strains of human bacteria that typically live in the gut.

Dr Blaser has studied the role of bacteria in human disease for over 30 years and is author of the book, “Missing Microbes: How the overuse of Antibiotics is Fuelling our Modern Plagues.

“My theory is that the one reason is the changing microbiome; that we evolved a certain stable situation with our microbiome and with the modern advances of modern life, including modern medical practices, we have been disrupting the microbiome. And there's evidence for that, especially early in life, and it's changing how our children develop.

I'm concerned that the microbiome is part of our whole developmental process and if we disrupt it early, there are potentially consequences. ...”

The Life and Times of Bacteria and Progurt by Professor Earl Owen.

Today, because of WESTERN DIETS, (bigger and bigger food manufacturers including additives for profit of antibiotics, growth hormones and other medicines as well as massive amounts of sugars) we need special strains of BACTERIA. These Bacteria are provided in PROGURT.

Because of our Western Diet, many types or strains of Bacteria have disappeared from our intestines and of those remaining, nearly all are based on Lactobacillus Bacteria.

We need the additional or missing strains provided by Progurt.

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.
