After being on so many antibiotics due to my elbow infection (you can watch the video here), I have been on a hunt to find superior probiotics to help recolonise my gut health. I’m happy to say I stumbled across the company Progurt as I’m quickly learning there are many forms of bacteria strains, strength’s and qualities.
I have put this quick video together to show you what I’m doing each morning to create my super strength probiotic high protein breakfast. I stumbled across the company Progurt and have been highly impressed with the probiotic it produces and wanted to share it with you.
Hi. This is Guy of 180 Nutrition, and I just wanted to share with you this short video as we’re covering this month, the month of the gut.
So, I discovered this company call Progurt and I’ve been using their product for the last few days.
Now, they don’t even actually know I’m shooting this video. I’m just doing it because I’ve been really impressed with what they’ve done and I wanted to put that out there and at least make you aware of it.
Now, essentially, it’s a probiotic you ferment yourself.
Now, what I’ve been learning over the last few weeks is that there are different strains of bacteria.
So, for instance, you get a bacteria strain from vegetable strains. So, things like
And then you can create probiotics to, say, from animal strains, which would be kefir, as another example. So, you use it in cows milk.
And then what Progurt used, and this is actually from human strain, now, to ferment it what we do is you need a vehicle. So the vehicle that I use is actually milk.
But it’s; you have use ultra heat-treated milk, so it’s dead as a doornail. So then that’s the vehicle to produce the human strain bacteria. So, to my understanding, the human strain colonizes much, much better in the gut and lasts longer.
Now, to add to that, this will make a liter of pretty much yogurt, which is the Progurt. So, a litre of this, you tip that in there, and then you get the sachet, and I’ll throw that in, mix it around, and we’ll drop it in this incubator and that ferments for, I think, up to 12, 14, 16 hours you can leave it in there. And then you take it out and you put it in the fridge for another 12 hours and then you have your fermented probiotic.
Now, the other thing that’s pretty remarkable is that one liter of this is the equivalent to about a thousand capsules of your regular probiotic that you walk into the chemist and buy. So, this is exceptionally potent stuff. It’s high-grade and I think that’s crucial, especially when it comes to the gut, including myself.
Now, I know some people don’t drink milk, and you can take this, actually, straight. Mix it with water. But that would be a pretty expensive way of doing it. But that is an option.
Now, for me, personally, I don’t generally drink a lot of milk, but I’ve got no problem doing this, especially because the amount of antibiotics I’ve been on for my infections in my elbow and I cut my leg open.
My gut health is of the utmost importance to me.
So, the other thing they did mention when I spoke to the manufacturers is they’re gonna be doing a strain of bacteria that will colonize and produce in coconut; fresh coconut milk. So, that will be pretty cool, so keep an eye out.
Now, all I’ll I’m doing is essentially getting this on an empty stomach. So, this is what it looks like, And as you can see, it’s there.
And then I simply get one scoop of 180 protein supplement and then mix it into a paste.
And that’s my probiotic high protein breakfast first thing in the morning.
Now, I just want to add, if you ever get the Progurt and you use it, or you have any
questions, I’d certainly love to hear from you. And hopefully you’ve found this helpful and it’s something that you might want to look at yourself.
