New Developments in My Supercharged Yogurt Experiments

Posted by

Hi friends, I hope this finds you safe and well. It’s been a long time since the last update and a lot has happened personally, so apologies for the delay, I won’t get into details here. Instead, let’s dive right into supercharged yogurt updates.

Per my last post, after several months without supercharged yogurt, I was committed to making it and taking it and even through a rough few months, I’d been good about that. As a result, my gonzo right eyebrow has bits of hair and the nearly-gone left eyebrow is nearly all back in. My lashes and nails look good, too. All of this is amazing, given the stresses of the last few months, which makes me even more convinced that the supercharged yogurt really helps me physically and emotionally (more even-keeled, better able to deal with stress, more resilient, all which I’ve said before).

Still, it’s worth noting that I made several horrible batches over the last few months, too. I’m not sure exactly what went wrong — I’m guessing our house is just too cool to ferment the yogurt properly. I tried sticking the jars in a crockpot on warm (still yucky) and a few other tricks that I found on the interwebs, to no avail. The batches were awful.

Still, time wasn’t on my side and I was committed to staying the course, so I ate the yogurt, awful batches and all. It was the only way.

Until a few weeks ago, that is, when I finally broke down and bought an MVPower Yogurt maker from Amazon (I wanted to link to that so you’d see exactly what I bought, not because of any affiliations, but it’s out of stock with no restock date. That said, there are a lot of them out there, so here’s a link to one like I got, on eBay). I’d put it off for so long because we have so much stuff in our house already and the thought of one more appliance made me naseous. But I knew that if I didn’t get the yogurt warm enough (but not too warm) to ferment well, then the batches would keep failing. (I knew from hair, skin and nails and stress that I was benefitting anyway, but also felt like I likely wasn’t getting full benefits).

On top of that, I found a recent update from Dr. William Davis, the Wheat Belly doctor whose Bio Gaia yogurt inspired my supercharged yogurt. From the information he posted, when the yogurt ferments at the right temp for 36 hours (36 hours!), the Lactobacillus Reuteri probiotics multiply like mad, to what’s supposed to be the beneficial-level equivalent of the rat experiment that resulted in better hair and skin (the link goes to one of my previous posts about this and within that, you’ll find more links to the original experiments, if you’re interested).

All that said, I love my yogurt maker. As I write this, it’s downstairs on the kitchen counter making another batch of supercharged yogurt, happily warming the mix for, yes, 36 hours! I’ve already had three batches from this (it only makes one week’s worth at a time) and I’m over the moon. Great flavor, great texture and so far, I think my body’s responding well.

For the sake of ease, we’ll use January 1 as the starting point for these new supremely supercharged yogurt experiments and we’lll see where things land by end of May or June as far as hair, skin, nails and mood. And I just may surprise you with some long-promised pics soon, truly.

Stay well, folks, take care.

PS: I’ve tried for a while to get used to WordPress’s Block Editor and still abhor it, so at some point this spring, I’ll migrate all of this to a different platform…so if you’re hating my blog’s layout and lack of user-friendliness, I apologize — I do, too, and am working on it. Still, thanks for visiting/reading.
