Supercharged Yogurt Update: A Different Approach for the Next Few Months

Posted by

Hi all, it’s me, back with another quick update on the supercharged yogurt/probiotic front. If you read the last post, you know that a I had my first bomb of a batch of yogurt in August. Nevertheless, my body doesn’t lie and I know it was benefitting from this stuff, so I made another batch earlier in this month, just after the last update.

And that batch, I’m thrilled to report, was just as wonderful as all the others, save for the disasterous, attic-baked batch. And with that, my body feels as happy as ever.

With just a few jars of this most recent and delightful batch left, I was on the verge of going to Whole Foods for the ingredients (I’ve come to be very particular about the milk I use as the basis, as I think it makes a difference, and they have a local brand that’s worked particularly well).

Then, I read a first, and a second and a third article on Seed pre/probiotic supplements. And I admit, I found the info interesting.

And, faithful readers, as you know by now, I’m a sucker for self-experiments (and, as I always do, let me remind you right now that I’m not a medical professional or anything remotely close, I’m just someone with some health challenges who enjoys all sorts of self-experiments in the hope that someday, we’ll all feel awesome).

That said, I just subscribed to Seed (women’s formula) and I’ll give it a go for at least a few months, unless I notice something awful happening (like my eyebrows disappearing, given that they’re about 1/3 of the way grown back in, pigment and all, and I’ll take a photo pre-Seed and post it, so we can compare progress together).

It’s worth mentioning, too, that although Seed supplements contain l. reuteri (the probiotic that I focused on through the supercharged yogurt and that’s in Bio Gaia Gastrus tablets), it’s neither of the strains that are in the Bio Gaia tablets. That said, it’s like putting a slightly different gas in the tank, so we’ll see what happens — the Bio Gaia might have been the perfect thing to jumpstart my eyebrows and all, while this may not work as well. Only time will tell, friends.

(It should be noted, too, if it’s not already clear, that even though I’m trying something different for a few months, I’ve been over the moon with the great results I’ve had from my supercharged yogurt and GoL and Vegan Smart mix and, as I’ve stated many times, I don’t get any kickbacks from any of these brands/manufacturers.)

Through Chalkboard mag, I got a 10% discount on the first month, so a bottle (30-day supply, with 60 capsules) was $40, normally $50.

If that seems like a lot (it did to me for a moment, too), I realized that I spend more than that each month between the supercharged yogurt and the Bio Gaia tablets that go in my yogurt, as well as the Garden of Life Women’s 50 probiotics that I add to my Vegan Smart shakes. (Overall, the three batches of supercharged yogurt cost about $24-$36/month, depending on how many Bio Gaia tablets I need, and the Garden of Life probiotics are about $45.)

The yogurt will be gone in a few days and my plan is to use the Garden of Life supplements until they’re done (about two more weeks). Then, assuming that my Seed order has arrived, I’ll start using those only. (Update at 7:18pm on the day I posted this: I’ve just received confirmation that my order shipped.)

I’m excited to see what additional progress, if any, will be noticeable once I’ve been on the Seed supplements for a while.

And, if nothing else, not making yogurt a few times each month frees up about 6-8 hours that I’m going to spend trying to make gluten-free sourdough bread, once I get that starter going. Stay tuned for more on that front!

Cheers, friends, thanks for keeping up, I’ll keep you posted, xoxoxo!
