Why are fermented foods so good for us?

Fermentation is a natural metabolic process that occurs when bacteria break down foods, turning proteins & carbohydrates into amino acids and creating easily absorbable nutrients, vitamins, amino acids, and digestive enzymes. This means that the bacteria are actually pre-digesting the food so the nutrient value is available for instant absorption by our bodies, and our digestive system doesn’t need to do any work to break the food down.  If food is too hard to digest, and we don’...

The most important health concept...

Did you know your gastrointestinal tract, which begins at your mouth and ends at your anus, is your gateway to health or disease? This system, which is an amazing 8.22m long, is your fuelling station as well as your waste-management system. I'm sure you've heard many stories about the importance of bowel cleansers to detoxify your colon and that fibre is an important preventative to the ravages of colon cancer. But, unfortunately few people have been properly informed of the overwhelming sc...

Probiotics for colds & flu's

Brrrr - the chill is back in the air as winter firmly asserts itself over the country one more time.

Healthy pregnancy, healthy birth, healthy baby

It has become more and more apparent that one of the most important components vital for a healthy pregnancy and baby is "Good" Bacteria along with proper nutrient absorption. Bacteria are the key to living in health or illness as they are the foundation of a healthy immune system. Bacteria are responsible for breaking down our food in order to absorb nutrients, minerals and vitamins. Science has found that over 80% of all ill-health and disease is initiated or contributed to by compromised b...

Do the live bacteria in Immunity Fuel stay alive on their journey through the digestive system?

We recently received a query about whether any tests have been done to prove that the live bacteria in Immunity Fuel actually make it through the stomach acid "alive" and then into the intestines still "alive". We know that the bacteria in the product is alive as it is batch tested to ensure viable colony counts. But how do we know it survives its trip down the intestinal path? ...

The importance of live bacteria

Did you know that our bodies are made up of trillions of cells, and as well as human cells we are made up of hundreds of billions of living bacteria called the microflora, which live on our skin, in our mouth and nose and largely in our intestines (gut flora). The gut flora is made up of both 'good' and 'bad' bacteria and it is important to maintain a balance of these to ensure good gut health. The 'good' bacteria spend their days helping to neutralise some of the toxic by-products of digestion,...
