Before Starting

All the preparation utensils and materials should be very clean. Always wash your hands well before preparation.

It is best to use 1 liter (32 ounces) of Whole Cow Organic Pasteurized Milk. Raw milk can also be used because it must be boiled anyway.

Avoid using Ultra Pasteurized (UHT) milk, as the high temperature used to sterilize it completely breaks most of the milk proteins.

Do NOT vegetarian milk such as soy, almond, flax, coconut or lactose-free milk. Goat or sheep milk can be used, but the yogurt may not become as thick.



INSTRUCTIONS For Bravo Yogurt

  1. First, start with boiling 1 liter of milk, stirring (whisking) occasionally to keep from sticking to the bottom of the pot until it boils. We suggest using thick bottom pot to prevent the milk from sticking to the bottom. Milk boils when it blows up to the rim of the pot. Remove the pot from heat immediately. Do NOT over boil the milk.
  2. Cool the milk to room temperature (90°F) without stirring it by simply leaving it at room temperature. Remove the thick layer off top and discard it (it is mainly composed by caseins). Transfer the warm milk into the glass bowl.
  3. Gently add the powder contents from: 1 Silver bag(starter), 1 Small White bag(Colostrum), and 1 Large White bag(Probiotic & Prebiotic) - to a small amount of milk in a separate glass and stir thoroughly with a tablespoon or a very clean whisk(the easiest way to use the whisk is to swirl it between your palms). After all the clumps have been completely dissolved, add to the rest of the milk in the glass bowl and gently stir. 
  4. Once powders are mixed in, loosely cover the bowl with aluminum foil so that air can still pass over the fermenting milk while it is covered.
  5. Put the bowl in a draft-free place where it will not be disturbed and temperatures will remain around 68-86F (21-30°C). A good place is an unheated oven.  Do not mix or move it.
  6. Bravo Probiotic Yogurt will typically  ferment in 24 hours depending on the room temperature. If it does not get creamy in 24 hours then leave untouched for another 12-24 hours. 
  7. Once the Bravo yogurt has reached the desired consistency, remove from the (unheated)oven and mix it well using a tablespoon.
  8. Cover and place the glass bowl with the yogurt it in the refrigerator, where it should stay at least 2 hours before its first use. 

 

Bravo probiotic expiration date is 2-3 weeks after the preparation. Bravo probiotic powders and prepared Bravo Yogurt should Not be frozen.

It is recommended (for best effect) with every spoonful, to swish around in your mouth for 30-60 seconds and then gargle before swallowing.

While consuming Bravo Yogurt, do not consume artificial sweeteners. Artificial sweeteners kill the friendly good bacteria and microorganisms.

Use 4 fl. oz. (1/2 cup) serving daily first thing in the morning or at the end of a meal rich in vegetables or leafy greens (fiber) or before going to bed. After consuming Bravo Yogurt, do not eat or drink anything for one hour. This amount is intended for adults. Daily dose for kids has to be adjusted according to their weight; i.e. 50 to 100 lbs. = ½ dose or 25 to 50 lbs. would be ¼ dose, etc.

Important: Powders are very stable thus they can be shipped without any refrigeration. However, to extend the shelf life of the powders and to preserve their integrity and efficacy we suggest to store the Bravo Easy Kit into the refrigerator (about 5°C), far from humidity, in its original envelope.

Suggestions for using Bravo Probiotic Yogurt
It is highly recommended to add 10,000IU of Vitamin D3 to your diet when enjoying Bravo Probiotic Yogurt.
Using high doses of Vitamin D3 depletes the body of Vitamin K2. Taking 1 300mcg of Vitamin K2 twice each day will help. There should be a ratio of approximately 5 or 10 to 1 ie 10,000 to 600 mcg of K2 ( can take up to 900 mcg a day)

Use 4 fl. oz. (1/2 cup) serving daily first thing in the morning or at the end of a meal rich in vegetables or leafy greens (fiber) or before going to bed. After consuming Bravo Yogurt, do not eat or drink anything for one hour. This amount is intended for adults.

While consuming Bravo Yogurt, do not consume artificial sweeteners. Artificial sweeteners kill the friendly good bacteria and micro organisms.


Bravo cannot be prepared using some leftover from the previous preparation. This is due to the fact that Bravo powders contain colostrum which is completely used by bacteria during the fermentation process. At the end of the fermentation, no more colostrum is available in the product; this means that if some leftover is used to prepare a second batch, bacteria do not have any further colostrum to use. Colostrum is important to allow, during the fermentation process, the natural formation of molecules active on the immune system. Furthermore, Bravo formulation has been studied considering a precise ratio among the strain of bacteria and yeasts growing during the fermentation process. The cultures have to be renovated every time to keep this ratio.


How To Make Homemade Bravo Suppository

Simply mix 3 TBSP of yogurt and 3 TBSP of coconut oil The coconut oil should be like soft butter (room temp). From this mixture form twelve 1-1/2” inch rolls. Refrigerate or freeze to harden. Use every night before bed. Simply insert it - it will stay inside and repopulate the colon with beneficial probiotics. Store the frozen suppositories in the freezer.

Powders are very stable thus they can be shipped without any refrigeration. However, to extend the shelf life of the powders and to preserve their integrity and efficacy we suggest to store the Bravo Easy Kit into the refrigerator (about 5°C), far from humidity, in its original envelope.
