Bravo and the microbiome versus the oxalates

Bravo and the microbiome versus the oxalates

Dear Valued Customer,

Researchers at Lawson Health Research Institute and Western University have published a new study that reveals a connection between changes in the body's microbiome at various locations (such as gut, urinary and salivary tract) and the development of kidney stones.

Calcium oxalate, a waste product produced by the body, is the most common component of kidney stones but oxalates are also known to have a larger impact on overall health. This new study, suggesting a more intricate picture about the link of oxalates and the microbiome, opens a much wider and intriguing perspective.

Another groundbreaking discovery, confirming the potential role of oxalates in health issues, is the link of oxalates with inflammasome activation, a key component of the immune system's inflammatory response. Mounting evidence suggests that inflammasome activation can alter the composition of the gut microbiota, which, in turn, affects disease onset and progression. 

Understanding dietary oxalates role, how it is influenced by the microbiome, and how it affects the inflammasome becomes crucial for managing various conditions, including autism, cancer, chronic pain, autoimmune diseases, general inflammation, age-related disorders like gout, type 2 diabetes, obesity, and neurodegenerative diseases.

As we gain a deeper understanding of the diverse ways oxalates can hinder optimal health, the potential benefits of Bravo (a highly fermented product containing pre-pro-and postbiotics) in targeting oxalates, become increasingly evident.


1. Bravo microbial strains degrade oxalates.

Bravo contains hundreds of “oxalotrophs” strains that are known to degrade oxalates (such as specific strains of Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium).

2. Bravo eliminates excess oxalates thanks to its detoxifying properties.

Bravo has powerful detoxifying properties that help eliminating oxalates as it happens with a variety of water- and lipid-soluble compounds.

3. Bravo restores the healthy human microbiome.

Bravo, for its wide biodiversity, completeness, and fermentation-derived properties, is known to accurately restore and rebalance the whole human microbiome.

Yours truly,

Marco Ruggiero
