Bravo Starter Kits Now Available from our Health Store
So you have heard the term ‘Food is Medicine’? Well when I came across this product I thought we really were in danger of a health revolution! This knocks spots off any of the commercial probiotics on the shelves currently. The beauty of this product is its natural ability to strengthen the body’s immune system. It is entirely natural and is composed of a special protein molecules which when combined with oleic acid and vitamin D and the enzymes produced by the probiotic bacteria, is a substance called GcMAF, one of the most important componants of our immune system in the fight against cancer and viruses.
This is the published work of molecular biologist, Marco Ruggiero and Professor of Biochemistry, Microbiology and Immunology Dr Nobuto Yamamoto. For a full list of the references please read:

What is Bravo Probiotic?
Bravo is a complex multistrain bacterial fermentation process; it is not merely a probiotic and technically it is a fermented dairy product. Unlike other commercial fermented yoghurt products that contain two to six microbial strains, Bravo Probiotic Yoghurt contains 42 bacterial and yeast strains including important infant and commensal strains.
The preparation process allows the natural production of several health boosting powerful bio-active molecules such as lactoferrins, immunoglobulins, noble proteins, anti-oxidants, vitamins and powerful immuno-stimulant factors (GcMAF) and may help to restore a healthy gut micro-biome.
Tests on Bravo at a major university indicate it does not contain casein and other milk proteins after the bacteria have digested the milk during the fermentation process and in populations of people sensitive to lactose and A1 Casein, it has been very well tolerated.
What is GcMAF?
Apart from being one of the most controversial topics on the planet at present. GcMAF is short for Gc Protein-derived Macrophage Activating Factor. Read more about the controversy here.
GcMAF is a human protein, which occurs naturally in our bodies as a function of the immune system. It activates and instructs macrophages to destroy cancerous cells and foreign invaders such as viruses and a number of diseases and studies have been published in relation to Autoimmune diseases, Autism and other chronic illnesses including Cancer, HIV/Aids, Lymes and many more.
Macrophages (Greek: big eaters) are a type of white blood cell found in the body and function as our defense system (our immunity). Their role is to attack foreign substances, infectious microbes and cancer cells through destruction and ingestion (phagocytize). They also stimulate other immune cells (lympocytes) to fight to disease-causing pathogens.
How the body makes GcMAF to protect you from cancer and viruses?
GcMAF is a glycoprotein that activates macrophages which in turn increases macrophage activity and transforms them into Natural Killer (NK) cells.
There is a protein called vitamin-D binding protein, (the Gcprotein also called a glycoprotein, because it is a protein with sugar molecules attached). It is a precursor of GcMAF and when tow of the sugars are removed (deglycosylation of the vitamin D-binding protein (the Gc protein)) Phewwww!…..stay with me the resulting protein is felt to be a macrophage activating factor (MAF).
MAFs are a class of protein which “activate” macrophages, which can under the proper circumstances attack cancer cells and viruses.
Sometimes it’s easier to look at a picture 🙂
What is Nagalase?
Nagalase is an enzyme (alpha-N-acetylgalactosaminidase), produced by many cancers and viruses, and it is known to block, the production of GcMAF. It has been suggested that nagalase may be beneficial biomarker in the future for health screening of cancer and viruses as it can be detected before the pathology is present.
What is Bravo Probiotic Yoghurt?
Bravo Yogurt has proven to produce GcMAF in a completely natural way. This GcMAF Probiotic Bravo Yogurt Kit contains 42 essential probiotics to restore healthy gut function and digestion. These 42 strains of probiotic bacteria have proven to produce the essential protein, GcMAF.
The unique formulation of BRAVO derives from the most recent research that demonstrate how much special fermented milk products and colostrum can be beneficial in maintaining health and how they can be included in a complementary natural nutritional approach. The final product, that you can prepare in your kitchen, contains natural (not artificially added) noble proteins, minerals and vitamins spontaneously produced by the living microorganism population (active cultures) in the product.
In fact, the original blend and the innovative procedure of preparation potentially allows the natural production of several powerful bio-active molecules such as lactoferrins, immunoglobulins, anti-oxidants, vitamins and immunostimulant factors.
This specific protein is necessary for Vitamin D to work in the body. Vitamin D is now recognized as the most important vitamin for optimal health. It has been proven to help restore health to the body and even prevent cancer. If you have used antibiotics or received vaccinations, Vitamin D3 along with these beneficial probiotics are a necessity for good health.
Vitamin D supports the healthy function of:
- the immune system
- intestinal health
- antioxidant potential
- blood sugar balance
- chronic pain relief
- blood pressure
- and elimination parasites and candida
Recent research studies have shown that active ingredients in Bravo Probiotic Yogurt have helped the body in healing ADHD, memory, autism, chronic fatigue and a host of other autoimmune conditions and chronic infections.

Bravo probiotic yogurt is designed not to be produced industrially and it cannot be found in supermarkets. The starter kits allows you to simply and conveniently make the Bravo Probiotic Yoghurt at home and is more cost effective than buying ready-made. Simply boil one litre of A2 casein milk (I recomned Jersey milk), allow to cool, skim and mix in the powders (included in the kit). Keep at room temperature and 48 hours later, you will have Bravo Probiotic Yoghurt ready to drink – which has a two-week shelf life.
Unlike commercial fermented milk products that claim to stimulate the immune system and contain 2 to 6 microbial strains, BRAVO contains more than 40 microbial strains. All the strains of BRAVO are fully authorized and certified as appropriate and safe for human use by the European Food Safety Authority. Most of the species are from human origin and they have been tested as not pathogenic for humans.
Because this natural supplement activates the immune system, some people experience minor side effects in the first 2 weeks. You may feel a swelling of lymph nodes, brief headaches and low energy while the immune system is busy working to support healthy function.
