Bravo was developed by Dr. Marco Ruggiero, M.D., PhD.
Dr. Ruggiero is former professor of molecular biology; in his career he published over 200 scientific articles and his research has been cited by numerous prestigious magazines. Dr. Ruggiero designed Bravo as a line of highly fermented products extremely rich in prebiotics, probiotics and postbiotics, with the aim to reconstitute the complexity of the human healthy microbiome.
Why are Bravo products so different from any other?
1. BRAVO ARE HIGHLY FERMENTED PRODUCTS.
Each Bravo product is based on a unique and proprietary fermentation process responsible for the formation of hundreds of new molecules known to support the immune system and to reconstitute the gut and brain microbiome. Among these, GcMAF (Gc protein-derived Macrophage Activating Factor), a potent modulator of the immune system. Independent laboratory analysis demonstrated that Bravo has 100 times more GcMAF activity than the commercially available GcMAF taken as reference. These results have been published in the American Journal of Immunology (Vol. 16(1) pp. 8-18. 2018).
2. BRAVO PRODUCTS ARE RICH OF PREBIOTICS, PROBIOTICS, AND POSTBIOTICS
Bravo products are not merely blends of probiotics. They contain the most BIODIVERSE array of microbes (probiotics) mirroring the complexity of the human microbiome (including entericcoated microorganisms, fermenting cultures, and Bifidobacteria), prebiotics, and hundreds of newly formed molecules deriving from the unique and proprietary fermentation process (postbiotics).
3. BRAVO, WITH ITS MORE THAN 300 DIFFERENT STRAINS OF MICROORGANISMS, HAS THE MOST BIODIVERSE ARRAY OF MICROBES
At variance with all other probiotic formulas that flood the human ecosystem with billions of only a few species of microbes running the risk of altering a delicate balance, Bravo reconstitutes the microbiome biodiversity by providing hundreds of different species of microbes. As a matter of fact, the healthy human microbiome is a complex, diverse, and inclusive ecosystem where many species of microbes live in harmony with each other and with human cells. Recent scientific evidence demonstrates that the healthy human microbiome comprises
phages, that are friendly viruses that help fighting off pathogenic bacteria that cause diseases. Bravo is the only product in the world that naturally contains a wide array of phages that contribute to its health-supporting properties. The health-supporting properties of the phages that are present in Bravo have been described in a peer-reviewed scientific article published in the Journal of Neurology and Stroke (Vol. 10(2) pp. 80-90. 2020). Unique among other products,
Bravo also contains plasmids that are small pieces of circular DNA that serve the purpose of microbial communication. In other words, thanks to the presence of plasmids, all the microbes of Bravo communicate with each other as well as with the cells of the human body and contribute to the establishment of an harmonious biological ecosystem that benefit the host (our human body) as well as the microbiome. The characteristics of the plasmids in Bravo and their role have been described in a peer-reviewed scientific article published in the Madridge Journal of Immunology (Vol. 3(2). pp. 100-108. 2019).In short, thanks to the presence of
hundreds of different microbial strains, phages and plasmids, Bravo is much more than a mere probiotic; it is an entire ecosystem that reconstitute and supports the human microbiome, the largest and most complex organ of our bodies. As the popular press says, we are only 10% human because the microbial cells in our bodies outnumber the human cells 10 to 1. All these microbial cells live in a delicate balance that can be disrupted by a variety of factors ranging from antibiotics in our food, glyphosate, heavy metals, environmental pollution, humanmade electromagnetic fields and stress; Bravo, thanks to the complexity of its composition, reconstitutes and supports this delicate balance and counteracts the damage inflicted by all these factors.
4. BRAVO IS MADE IN SWITZERLAND, IN A FDA-REGISTERED FACILITY, ONLY WITH INGREDIENTS FROM SWITZERLAND, EUROPE, AND US
In Switzerland, we cherish the environment as much as we cherish our health since the two go together. For this reason, the facility where we manufacture Bravo is certified by Demeter, the organization that first established the principles of biodynamic agriculture since 1924. Biodynamic agriculture is a holistic, ecological and ethical approach that has the goal to heal the planet through agriculture. Bravo products are made with milk and colostrum or with hemp
seed proteins. In both case, the animals that give us their milk and colostrum, as well as the plants that give us the seeds, are treated with the utmost care and respect according to the principles of biodynamic agriculture. The Demeter mark of the Bravo manufacturing facility represents the connection to our natural environment - to plants, to animals, to food - and stands for food that should not just fill us up, but nourish our body, soul and mind.
5. BRAVO PRODUCTS ARE TOTALLY NATURAL, WITH NO GMOs, SOY, ARTIFICIAL COLORS, ARTIFICIAL COLORS, ARTIFICIAL FLAVORS, HORMONES, ADDITIVES, PRESERVATIVES.
6. BRAVO HAS BEEN DESCRIBED IN MANY SCIENTIFIC PAPERS AND MAGAZINES.
