Microbiome - The Human Ecosystem

The Human Microbiome is a complex internal ecosystem of bacteria located within our bodies, and the vast majority of these bacterial species live in our digestive systems. The billions of beneficial bacteria that make up our microbiome benefit our gut health and the immune system. As nearly 80% of our Immune System is located in our gut, the microbiome is crucial for boosting immunity, keeping our digestive systems running smoothly, our hormone levels balanced and our brains ...

Probiotics & Diverticulitis

Diverticulitis is a condition that occurs in the digestive tract when pouches form in the wall of the colon and these get inflamed or infected.  This can result in painful symptoms such as stomach pain, bloating, constipation or diarrhoea and even fever, chills, nausea and vomiting. This condition most usually occurs due to a lack of fibre in the diet, which can help create the pouches, and build up of bad bacteria which can then cause the inflammation. Diverticulitis is often treated with ...

Why are fermented foods so good for us?

What is fermentation?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 ...

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 beating winter colds

Brrrr - the chill is back in the air as winter firmly asserts itself over the country once again. It's back to lighting the fire, donning the woolly socks, snuggling up in fleecy p.j.'s and stocking up on tissues and lozenges. We also now seeing adverts on the tele advising us we need the flu shot, but do we really need a jab, or is there a more natural way to fight the flu, common colds and other viruses? This is where probiotics come in. We all know that good bacteria can assist in keeping t...

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,...
