About Us


The Need

Having 8 kids, we are constantly looking for the healthiest and most-economical way to take care of our children. There are over 140 benefits from probiotics in general so I wanted a way for our kids to get the probiotics they need.

The Problem

ProBiotic pills or powders are extremely expensive and can die in stomach acid and didn't work for me.

So I bought 4 cases of yogurt. Now we have 8 kids so guess how long those 32 yogurts lasted? Not even 2 days as they even found the ones I hid the basement fridge!

So my wife bought 4 yogurt makers to make 32 yogurts but it took forever so we hardly ever made it. And when we did it filled the sink with 32 plastic cups, 32 tops, pots and utensils...

Also yogurt is made at lethal-fever temperatures that can kill a lot of probiotics (e.g. mesophilic cultures). Kefir is made at too cool of temperatures for thermophilic cultures to thrive. I thought to myself "If you want probiotics to thrive at body temperature then why not grow them at body temperature.

The Solution

As a natural problem solver, my motto has always been “There is always a solution, sometimes you just need to get more creative”.

There was no practical way to get a good variety of truly fresh probiotics so I set about designing a new product to solve this problem. I had several design criteria that would be World-Firsts:

  1. Make yogurt/kefir right in the milk bottle/jug
  2. Use skim milk to make fat-free yogurt/kefir (even though other makers say never use skim milk).
  3. Culture at body temperature rather than too cold(kefir) or too hot (yogurt). (I didn't know why nobody had thought of this before!)

Some additional lofty goals included:

  • Least expensive source for ProBiotics, Yogurt, and Kefir (Save you $$$$ - I have 8 kids and can't afford to buy 4 cases of yogurt every few days!).
  • Easiest and fastest way to make fresh ProBiotics. (Who has up to 3.5 hours to prep a batch of yogurt?)
  • Made in the USA. (We need to create jobs here!)
  • Best tasting yogurt/kefir. (What good is a healthy and inexpensive product if people and kids won't enjoy and use it.)

These were incredibly lofty goals and something that nobody had been able to do before. I worked for months and months on dozens of designs. To produce in the USA, the product would have to retail for $250.00! Reluctantly, we tried to produce overseas but they couldn't do it right nor meet the nearly impossible, lofty goals.

Finally after months and months of development and 27 generations of prototypes, the perfect inspired design and manufacturing process was ready. The Probiotic Maker™ was born. Now the optimum design is being produced right here in the USA for a fraction of the initial cost.

With the Probiotic Maker™ now there is a perfect solution to making fresh probiotics at home. The benefits of the Probiotic Maker™ include:

  • Save Time: No time for breakfast? No worries - just pour and go. Don't have hours to prepare a batch? Just 1 minute of prep time for an entire bottle! 
  • Save Money: Save a fortune every month (as low as pennies per serving). Make 11 of the freshest probiotics for less than buying ANY pills, powders, kefir, drinks, yogurt... 
  • No Mess: No washing dishes/pots/pans, no boiling/sterilizing, no preheating/cooling, no thermometer, no timers, no pots/pans, no containers to wash every time...

Our family started benefiting from the Probiotic immediately. The kids now had a ready-to-go, healthy breakfast or snack for whenever they are in a hurry. They enjoy a nighttime snack that helps them go to bed and sleep better. Our visits to the doctor's office have dropped over 75%, especially during strep, ear-infection, and flu season. The pediatrician even told my wife "we never see you anymore".

Lost 24 pounds without exercise making my own yogurt protein shakes probiotics.

I continued to use whole milk for the kids and started using skim milk for Mommy and me. I ended up losing over 24 pounds (from June 2 to January 5th in the photos the total was actually 27 lbs. but I just say "over 24 pounds" to be conservative) all without any exercise (broken foot) and saving room for more pie!

My rule became "if it isn't good for me and doesn't taste good then I am saving room for more pie". I even started leaving the pie crust (lard and white-flour so not good for me and doesn't taste good to me so I would rather have 2 pieces of pie and leave the crust:-).

Also, I haven't drank milk for decades and I continued to re-break my foot when I would exercise for nearly a decade. But after enjoying the fresh probiotics everyday, I have been able to start exercise again and have not re-broken my foot since! I must have been missing something like the calcium, vitamin D or the other 9 essential minerals and nutrients because I haven't  been drinking milk for decades.

So many others have been enjoying similar health benefits, cost savings, time savings... all while enjoying the delicious taste.

In fact, my wife contacted me as she was concerned the neighborhood kids had just had 4 servings each and were still begging for more. I replied "And? It is really good for them and it is cheap. Let them have all they want:-)". When have you heard of kids begging for something that is good for them (and super inexpensive)?!!

We are very grateful that so many people are benefiting from this inspired product that is also blessing our family. We hope you get the opportunity to benefit as much as we all have. Please help spread the word to help as many people as possible.

Thanks for all you do to help others.

Sincerely,

Merrick
Father of 8 and of the Probiotic Maker
