Dr. Marco Ruggiero's Study: The Effects of Bravo Yogurt Consumption Associated with Intermittent Fasting
The following is Dr. Marco Ruggiero's latest study as it appears in the bioRxiv archive of Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory describing the effects of Bravo yogurt consumption associated with intermittent fasting (intermittent fasting is a means to achieve nutritional ketosis).
This study describes the results observed by Dr. Jerry Blythe, MD, a long-time cancer survivor and marathon runner, who embarked in a three-month experience of intermittent fasting and Bravoconsumption.
The results observed by Dr. Blythe not only are consistent with those reported by other studies, but present additional, exciting observations that open novel perspectives for the use of the combination [intermittent fasting/Bravo].
In our paper, we demonstrate that Bravo yogurt leads to elimination through the urine of a number of chemical toxicants stored in fat. In other words, Bravo yogurt detoxifies the body of the harmful chemicals that may negatively affect the immune system, the endocrine system and the brain.
In this particular case, elimination through the urine of a number of chemicals that are known endocrine disruptors led to significant improvement of thyroid function as demonstrated by the decrease of TSH.
This mechanism bears important consequences: thus, accumulation of endocrine disruptors (chemical toxicants) leads to impaired thyroid function that in turn leads to reduced basal metabolism, reduced energy, retention of liquids and weight gain.
When the endocrine disruptors are eliminated through urine thanks to Bravo, thyroid function and metabolism normalize, energy levels increase and weight loss can be maintained.
As it is described in our paper, the detoxifying effect of Bravo is due to three mechanisms that, in turn, are due to the Bravo proprietary microbial formulation:
1. Instantaneous binding and elimination of toxicants.
2. Improved renal function with increased elimination of toxicants.
3. Increased production of anti-oxidant molecules and enzymes.
In addition, Dr. Blythe describes a significant improvement of immune system function as demonstrated by decrease of Nagalase. These data are consistent with the known immune-modulatory properties of Bravo and with the removal of chemical toxicants that are known to affect the immune system.

All healthy people have natural GcMAF inside them – it removes a number of diseases from the body including cancer without side effects. The immune system doesn’t function without it The GcMAF in our bodies has six attacks on cancer and 5 other direct effects that research publications have shown so far. Without the GcMAF we make inside us every day, we would all have died of diseases while still children. Serious illnesses like cancer, and many others listed on our website, prevent the production of your GcMAF, which also neutralises your immune system, so the disease can grow unchecked.
“My special little boy has been on Bravo yoghurt now for about 3 weeks. From the first day of a 1 ml dose his speech and cognitive functioning improved. The last few days have been nothing short of miraculous.
He has gone from needs based communication only to chatting away to us all day. He answers immediately, shows much clearer and faster comprehension and seems to be a much happier soul more engaged and interested in life and in people. It’s hard to emphasize the profundity of waiting 4 1/2 years to hear what is going on in the mind of my treasured son. I now hang off his every word. He even makes deliberate jokes, the same one but wanting us to respond with a laugh. He had his first conversation with his 2 yr old brother. He is correctly using pronouns without any prompting. He seems more physically coordinated and the biggest and first noticeable change was actually his eyes. They are clear, focused and present.
I know I don’t have to explain that to you all. He has been on Heather Way's supplements and nutrition plan for 10 months and full Gaps for 3 months before that. he was on the yoghurt for a week and then missed 4 days due to a delivery hiccup. It was quite astounding to see his reactions. His tantrums and meltdowns were extreme in this time, they continued for a little while when he went back on Bravo until I settled on a smaller dose.
Be prepared for a bit of unsettling behaviour for a short while, die-off more than likely the culprit. Bravo is penetrating the veil and it has allowed me to get to know my son so much more. If there were no more developments than this I would already be eternally grateful for the tenacious and brave Heather and Jason team. Strength and peace to all xo.”

“I asked my son this morning how he’s feeling taking the Bravo Yogurt and his exact words were " It make me think more better" I nearly cried but I didn't want to freak him out."

Autism Spectrum Disorder
“Hi guys it’s been 3 weeks since we started Bravo yogurt and although my son is on a very low dose still I’m starting to see good results We have doubled his sleep from 2-3 hours per night to 6-7 hours per night not only great for him but for me as well as I haven’t had a good night sleep in years . We also had significant increase of speech which meant fewer melt downs cause he knew we could understand him finally.”

Bravo Super Probiotic Concentrate contains essential probiotics to restore healthy gut function and digestion.
Do you have major milk allergies? Do you travel? (making yogurt a bit unreasonable?) Have someone who "can't take the taste"?
If you can. . . the yogurt with it's live matrix is still your BEST option. When it isn't practical or doesn't work for some reason, the concentrate capsule will be there to back us up. Keep some on hand!
Bravo has developed a new process to concentrate the beneficial properties of Bravo yogurt. Each bottle contains 30 capsules of Bravo concentrated yogurt. Suggested serving size is 1 capsule per day. One capsule of the concentrated Bravo yogurt provides most of the same benefits as 1/2 cup of Bravo Yogurt.
The big difference between homemade Bravo Yogurt and Bravo Concentrate is the yogurt works to fully line the mucosa of the intestines, which helps leaky gut to restore proper digestion. If your body is unable to tolerate the yogurt, the concentrated Bravo capsules will also help restore proper digestion, just more gradually.
It is made by simply making the yogurt and then drying it into a powder. It has an "enteric resistant" capsule which resists the stomach acid. The yogurt version seems to apply well to the gut, however, this cap offers something a bit different. It applies Bravo lower than the stomach if that is where you need it!
Open the capsule (or take yogurt) and mix it with your saliva. Hold it in your mouth for a few minutes and then swallow. Put Bravo where and when you want it with Bravo Concentrate.
We generally make and take "GcMAF Living Yogurt" which is always best. The live matrix is very responsive and coats immediately and much more fully. We measure the "Bravo Concentrate in "yogurt value" as if we are taking regular yogurt.
Dr. Ruggiero recommends 4 oz as the maximum daily dosage. The 8 TBS Bravo Concentrate Caps is the maximum daily dosage. Therefore 1 cap per day is the recommended dosage for maximum impact. However, the amount of yogurt taken should be built up to this level to prevent detoxification back-up. When starting Bravo, it is necessary to build up slowly due to it’s ability to shimmer the tissue and expel toxins.
The more you take, the more you shimmer and the more toxins are released. Further, it is recommended that Bravo Protocol Caps should be taken with Bravo. Bravo Protocol Caps have an herb that sweeps the toxins into the lymph. Bravo Protocol Caps Xtra has the same but also has a plunger effect to keep the lymph/spleen clear when it gets backed up. To improve the detoxification system it is recommended that you don’t introduce toxins through your food.
The Dr. recommends vegetables and clean protein and oils in small meals through out the day. Even if you think yourself or your client has a clean body, it is prudent when beginning, that each person work up to and find their right dosage. The maximum is not right for everyone. It depends on their ability to detoxify. (We recommend the Bravo Concentrate Start-Up Kit - sold separately or the yogurt in spoons according to preference.) All Bravo Concentrate Caps come in enteric coated capsules which helps to resist the stomach acid and to pass through the stomach and duodenum without dissolving. It’s target is most often the beginning of the small intestine. Therefore using this product will help establish a micro-biome in the small intestine, pancreas, spleen, kidneys, adrenals and lower diaphragm.
To focus the micro-biome with fast action on the upper Gastro-Intestinal track, use the prepared yogurt or make your own by using starter powder. The upper track has more food sensors for discernment and tasting. Therefore, you may be more aware of the yogurt’s action in this area. This area is also a “high need” area with the nerves, senses, brain, lungs, thyroid and thymus. If you know someone who is “senseless” or making mistakes, the yogurt can help reconnect the senses and balance. To focus the micro-biome with fast action on the reproductive area, colon and bladder, use the suppositories or an enema bulb to insert yogurt into the entry of the rectum. Building a micro-biome in the area could help in digestion, reproductive hormone balance, and the water/elimination through kidneys and bladder.
