Why do we believe ProGood Premium Probiotics + Prebiotics is the best probiotic brand on the market?

“Our ProGood Synbiotic technology is based on over 8 years of research at the Cooperative Research Centre (CRC) for Food Industry Innovation involving researchers from The University of NSW & CSIRO, which resulted in:

  • A selection of the best possible  Lactobacillus acidophilusand Bifidobacterium lactis
  • A selection of prebiotic fibre ingredients, (Arabinogalactan and Inulin from the Jerusalem Artichoke) which resist digestion and are designed to significantly multiply the probiotic cultures in the intestinal tract

This is how ProGood works and why we are different:


  • Probiotics: these are good bacteria which suppress the growth of bad bacteria in the intestines of humans.
  • Prebiotics: these are natural fibre ingredients that resist digestion but support the growth of probiotics in the intestines – in other words, a packed lunch for the good bacteria.
  • Synbiotics: these are a synergistic combination of prebiotics and probiotics which equate to much higher levels of probiotic culture cells in the intestine.

If you are as serious about yourself and your family’s well-being as we are, why not make ProGood Premium Probiotics + Prebiotics a part of your day?”

ProGood Ingredients:

Cultures: 30 billion per 5g serving.  Lactobacillus acidophilus and Bifidobacterium lactis. Dietary Fibre (ARABINO-GALACTAN), Inulin, Trehalose

After Midnight Delectable Rocky Road Recipe – InnerOrigin Blog (via InnerOrigin Blog)

This Rocky Road is not only everything you expect a rocky road to be…crunchy, chewy and rich…it’s also healthy! There’s no added sugar, no sugary unhealthy marshmallows or lollies…and it’s so delicious. This recipe uses After Midnight’s After Dark Superfood Chocolate, available for purchase from InnerOrigin. Enjoy!


  • 150g cacao butter
  • 150g After Midnight-Dark
  • 120g (1/2 cup) coconut cream (put the can in the fridge 1/2 hr before opening.
    This will solidify the cream on top which is the part you want to use)
  • 3/4 cup (120g) pistachios (or other nuts)
  • 3/4 cup (120g) dried raspberries (or cranberries, strawberries)
  • 1/2 cup puffed quinoa (or millet/rice/buckwheat)
  • 1/2 cup (80g) medium-large chunks of coconut butter/paste*
  • extra coconut butter in smaller bits for on top

How to make me:

  1. Put the chunks of coconut butter in a bowl or plate in the fridge. This ensures they are cold when you add them to the mixture and are not going to melt.
  2. Melt the cacao butter using a double boiler method –  by putting in a bowl over a saucepan of boiled water. stir it continuously until it melts
  3. Once all melted, add in the After Midnight-Dark and stir until fully blended.
  4. Mix in the coconut cream. This will start to cool down the chocolate mixture so you’ll want to add in all the rest of the ingredients quickly to ensure it doesn’t cool too quickly.
  5. Pour in the pistachios, raspberries, and puffed quinoa and stir until they are well combined. Finally add your coconut butter chunks and mix until they are mostly covered.
  6. Using a spatula, scoop the mixture into a silicone mould or onto a lined baking tray. It is great to leave it kind of chunky and uneven. Sprinkle additional coconut butter on top and press lightly to ensure it sticks.
  7. Put in fridge or freezer to set fully (30mins). Take it out and break or cut into chunks. They don’t need to be even.

Note: *Coconut Butter/Paste is not the same as coconut oil. It’s a thick paste formed from the ground coconut flesh, rather than an oil pressed from it.

How to create anything you want in life – Kate’s Top Ten Lessons

Have you ever felt like sometimes in life you just can’t go on anymore, you’ve got nothing left to give?. I know I have at times.
Have you ever experiences that feeling of being able to create anything you want in life? I know that feeling too.
The highs and lows of life is what I call this sometimes too.

However, thankfully to the power of some incredible personal development teachers I learnt so much about myself over a period of time and I continue to do so on a daily basis when things and situations show up for me to experience.

Along the way, I crossed paths, online, with Kate Marie O’Brien and I have to say her work is incredible. She’s been through soooo much and she openly and willingly shares her stories AND she is so talented too as she creates the most empowering, touching, raw, authentic and powerful messages via videos. I love her videos and love to share the messages she puts out there with others.

So here’s another one from Kate Marie O’Brien – enjoy and leave a comment of how you enjoyed and subscribe to her You Tube channel to see all the other videos and the up and coming ones too.

HOW to be unstoppable and shift through ANYTHING that can come up in your life.
This is the MANUAL of ‘HOW TO’ that we should’ve been born with…

I learnt these TOP TEN lessons, through trial and error. Going from anorexia, drug addiction, bulimia and depression, where I almost lost everything. To slowly building my life back up. Relearning how to be in the world, Regathering my strength… through to now, where I have a team of 10 full time employees, live where I want to in the world, and have the life I envisioned. PLEASE dont hear ‘perfect life’.. we all have our human experiences, ME INCLUDED! but in all honesty, its pretty damn far from what I had experienced. It feels like what happened to me, happened to someone else…

Recently someone reached out (again), and asked “do you have a video where you condense how you did it, and what you’ve learnt…”

I know they’re referring to how I turned my life around.
And I know that sounds a little wanky, and even boring
As soon many people talk about ‘I did this, and you can too’

So let’s just be clear
THIS, is NOT that.

What it IS, is THIS…

Ive taken my learnings from the last 15 years with everything Ive gone through
Put them in a pot
Boiled off all the water
And gotten it down to 10 remaining nuggets sitting in the bottom of the pot

… these are the TEN biggest things that I learnt through trial and error
And Ill be zero’ing in on the HOW

HOW I moved through my rock bottoms
HOW I managed to build up a team of 10 full time employees
HOW I’ve been able to be able to continue in the face of anything that’s arisen from me
HOW I’ve been able to not be stopped

… AND these ‘hows’ are universal.
Meaning, they’ll cross credit into YOUR life
Regardless of what you’re currently experiencing

The Ancient Tibetan Practice for Health and Vitality (via UPLIFT)

The Ancient Tibetan practice for Health and Vitality

By Azriel ReShel on Sunday March 27th, 2016

How Ten minutes a Day can change your Life

Some years ago I attended a yoga class where my flamboyant artist friend and yoga teacher shared an interesting sequence called The Five Tibetans. I immediately fell in love with this simple, short and totally useable sequence and it became a great resource that I turn to and use for a quick yoga pick me up. For some time it was a daily sequence, but it’s always been one I return to, and a sequence that I teach my students as a self empowering, simple yoga ritual they can do on their own at home.

So what are the Five Tibetans?

The Five Tibetans or the Five Rites of Rejuvenation, is a system of five, believed to be Tibetan, Yogic exercises said to be over 2500 years old. You flow through the five exercises almost in a meditative dance. Each exercise stimulates a particular chakra or hormonal system and revitalises certain organs, so that the five rites together form a complete workout for the body as a whole.

This series of movements also known as “The fountain of youth” are credited with the ability to heal the body, balance the chakras and reverse the ageing process in just ten minutes a day.

The movements are also known as
The movements are also known as “The Fountain of Youth”

According to legend, a British explorer learned the rites in a Himalayan Monastery from Tibetan monks who had excellent health despite their advanced age. Some skeptics cast doubt upon the origins of the practice, but no matter the exact source, there is no uncertainty about the great health benefits of the practice. Peter Kelder first publicised the Tibetan Rites in 1939 in a publication, The Eye of Revelation. The sequence was later popularised through a book, The Five Tibetans, written by yoga teacher Chris Kilham, who says we will never know their true origins:

“Perhaps they come from Nepal or Northern India…As the story has it, they were shared by Tibetan lamas; beyond that I know nothing of their history. Personally, I think these exercises are most likely Tibetan in origin. The issue at hand, though, is not the lineage of the Five Tibetans. The point is [their] immense potential value for those who will clear 10 minutes a day to practice.” – Chris Kilham

Yoga teachers are in agreement, the sequence is a simple yet incredibly, even deceptively powerful one that creates a dynamic energetic effect in the body increasing the flow of prana or chi up the spine and through the chakras, energising every cell in your body.

Turning back the clock

According to the Tibetan lamas, the only difference between youth and old age is the spin rate of the chakras (the body’s seven major energy centres).This specific routine is said by lamas to stimulate all seven chakras to spin rapidly at the same rate. They believe that if any one of the chakras is blocked and its natural spin rate slowed, then vital life energy will be unable to circulate and so ageing and illness will set in. The Five Tibetans are called the rites of rejuvenation because the lamas say the ageing process is stopped by the unblocking and activation of the spinning of the chakras due to this sequence. Recent medical research has uncovered convincing evidence that the ageing process is hormone-regulated.The sequence also normalises hormonal imbalances in the body which also hold the key to lasting youth, vitality and wellbeing.

As simple as the Five Tibetans may seem, they have a profound effect on the energy and chakra system of the body, stimulating the electrical energy of the chakras in the same way as switching on a light switch sets off a flow of electrical energy.

“The Five Tibetans is simple, practical, effective and certainly mind/body altering. If you would love to become rejuvenated, remain calm, feel more vitality, be more flexible and simply look your absolute best, then now there is a new way to experience a greater state of wellbeing that takes just minutes a day, but lasts a lifetime.” … Dr. John F. Demartini

How to practice the Five Tibetans

The Five Tibetans have similarities to some traditional yoga practices: Tibetan 1 is basically Sufi whirling. Tibetan 3 is essentially the camel pose. Tibetan 4 is like an upward table, and Tibetan 5 is a smooth flow of up dog and down dog

First Tibetan

Stand erect with arms strong, outstretched and horizontal with the shoulders. Now spin around in a clockwise direction until you become slightly dizzy. You can employ a ballet-like technique of keeping your eyes on one spot and then returning to that spot when you turn your head in a full revolution.There is only one caution: you must turn from left to right.

Breathing: Inhale and exhale deeply as you do the spins.

First Tibetan
First Tibetan

Second Tibetan

Lie down full length on the floor or bed. Place the hands flat down alongside of the hips. Fingers should be kept close together with the finger-tips of each hand turned slightly toward one another. Raise the feet until the legs are straight up. If possible, let the feet extend back a bit over the body toward the head, but do not let the knees bend. Hold this position for a moment or two and then slowly lower the feet to the floor, and for the next several moments allow all of the muscles in the entire body to relax completely. Then perform the Rite all over again. For greater core strength activation you can lower the legs without touching the floor and then using your belly and your in breath, raise the legs up, in a continuous cycle. Be sure to breath out as you lower the legs. An easier version is to have your hands underneath the buttocks and a more challenging version is to have the arms stretched above the head as you raise your legs.

Breathing: Breathe in deeply as you lift your head and legs and exhale as you lower your head and legs.

Second Tibetan

Third Tibetan

Kneel on the floor with the body erect. The hands should be placed on the backs of your thigh muscles. Incline the head and neck forward, tucking your chin in against your chest. Then fold the the head and neck backward, arching the spine. Your toes should be curled under through this exercise. As you arch, you will brace your arms and hands against the thighs for support. After the arching return your body to an erect position and begin the rite all over again.

Breathing: Inhale as you arch the spine and exhale as you return to an erect position.

Third Tibetan
Third Tibetan

Fourth Tibetan

Sit erect on the floor with your feet stretched out in front of you. The legs must be perfectly straight, with the backs of the knees well down or close to the floor. Place the hands flat on the rug, fingers together, and the hands pointing outward slightly. Chin should be on chest and the head forward. Now gently raise the body on an in breath, using your core strength of your belly to lift the pelvis, and at the same time bend the knees so that the legs from the knees down are practically straight up and down like an upward table. The arms, too, will also be vertical while the body from shoulders to knees will be horizontal. As the body is raised upward allow the head gently to fall backward so that the head hangs backward as far as possible when the body is fully horizontal. Hold this position for a few moments, return to first position on the out breath, and relax for a few moments before performing the Rite again. When the body is pressed up to complete horizontal position, you can tense every muscle in the body.

Breathing: Breathe in as you raise up, hold your breath as you tense the muscles, and breathe out fully as you come down.

Fourth Tibetan

Fifth Tibetan

Place the hands on the floor about two feet apart. Then, with the legs stretched out to the rear with the feet also about two feet apart in a downward dog, push the body, and especially the hips, up as far as possible, rising on the toes and hands. At the same time the head should be brought so far down that the chin comes up against the chest. Next, allow the body to come slowly down to a ‘sagging’ position in an upward dog, with only the toes on the floor. Bring the head up, causing it to be drawn as far back as possible. The muscles should be tensed for a moment when the body is at the highest point, and again at the lowest point.”Be sure not to strain the lower back, by bringing strong flowing movement to the upper shoulders. Those with lower back injuries can bend the legs as they go into upward dog.

Breathing: Breathe in deeply as you raise the body, and exhale fully as you lower the body.

Gain a more focused and purposeful mind

As with all yoga practice, it is important to synchronise your breath with the movement. It’s best to do the exercises in the morning because they get your energy going. But it’s highly likely you will fall in love with the sequence and want to repeat it during the day. To begin with it is best to complete five to seven repetitions of each rite every day and to work up to 21 repetitions of each of the exercises. Usually this takes about 10 – 12 weeks. A lot of people are keen to reach 21 repetitions quickly, but it is best to gradually increase the repetitions. The recommended slow build up process allows your body to develop a strong foundation upon which to improve your flexibility. And it also is important due to the effects of the Rites themselves.  They can initiate many changes in your bodies energy and balance systems. Although this varies from person to person, it is generally best to allow your body time to adjust.

It’s important to ay attention to what your body is telling you and not to strain or force any position that causes pain. There is also a simple and adapted version of the Five Tibetans for those who have injuries or cannot perform the sequence.

When you make this sequence part of your daily practice, you can experience an overall improvement in your health and wellbeing and perhaps the most important benefit, is a dramatic increase in your levels of energy. Other great benefits are a greater resilience to stress and the ability to stay centred. As with all yoga practice greater flexibility in body and mind are usual. Most people report a more focused and purposeful mind and greater awareness, which then creates a happier and more fulfilling life. This sequence really improves the quality of your life.

Experience an overall improvement in your health and wellbeing

A complete and balanced practice

One of the great things about the Five Tibetans, is it is a quick and simple practice that can be done by anyone, regardless of age or fitness levels. It is an incredibly simple ten minute routine that can easily be slotted into your daily life, yet will have major spin offs in all areas. Its free, and its yours. A self empowering practice you can do on your own anywhere and at any time! The Five Tibetans strengthens and stretches all the main muscles in the body. Just as Sun Salutations make up a complete sequence, the Five Rites are a complete and balanced practice.


In just ten minutes a day you can:

  • Reduce stress
  • Feel younger and more powerful
  • Slow down the aging process
  • Improve strength and flexibility
  • Enhance vitality
  • Calm the mind
  • Create greater mental clarity and focus
