Q. Can a person with gluten intolerance take Immunity Fuel?
A. The wheat in Immunity Fuel has been pre-digested by the bacteria so the amount of gluten present is very very low.

The good bacteria help to strengthen the immune system of you and your baby, while the wholefoods provide important nourishment to both you and your baby.

Q. When taking Immunity Fuel do I still need to take a multi vitamin?
Immunity Fuel is not only a probiotic but also a multi-vitamin itself due to the wholefoods in the product. These wholefoods are fermented with the bacteria to provide comprehensive nutrition so could be used in place of a multivitamin. Also worth noting is that most multi-vitamins come in pill form which are often made with fillers and are difficult for the body to digest and get the full benefit from.

Q. How do I tell if Immunity Fuel is working?
A. There is no one answer to this as everybody is different and will respond differently. It will likely depend on your current diet and lifestyle as to the changes you may notice. The real question is where else are you getting your nutrients and how are you replacing the good bacteria? Both are essential to good health so regardless if your body shows major changes or subtle ones the key is to replace bacteria daily and to saturate the body with nutrients.

A. Immunity Fuel is manufactured in Australia. All ingredients are Certified Organic and none of them have been genetically engineered.

Q. Where does the bacteria come from?
A. Our bacteria come from fruits and vegetables, unlike many bacteria which is taken from faecal matter. In addition, our bacteria are organic and have not been genetically modified.

Q. How long will I have to take Immunity Fuel for?
A. Each day our bodies lose approximately 50mls of bacteria and therefore to replace this we need to take one teaspoon of Immunity Fuel daily for the rest of our lives. This is due to the fact that in modern society the bacteria are being killed daily through antibiotic therapy, heat and cold in the processing of foods, chemicals in fizzy drinks, stress, fluorides, chlorides, salt, and alcohol to name just a few.

Q. Do I need to take a prebiotic?
A. Prebiotics are simple sugars that the bacteria require to keep them alive. Immunity Fuel contains liquid malt and molasses for the bacteria to feed on so a prebiotic is not required to be taken.

Q. Do I need to take a probiotic if I am prescribed an antibiotic?
A. Yes. Antibiotics are used to destroy harmful bacteria in the body causing infection. However they also kill off the good bacteria our bodies need to stay healthy. Therefore, a good probiotic like Immunity Fuel is imperative to be taken before, during and after a course of antibiotics to ensure a healthy balance of good bacteria in the body.

Q. Does it make any difference if I take Immunity Fuel before, with, or after food?
A. Immunity Fuel can be taken at any time of the day, with or without food. It is best to incorporate it into your daily routine, and not to be mixed with hot foods or beverages, as this may affect the integrity of the bacteria.

Q. How are the bacteria in Immunity Fuel different from other bacteria?
A. There are 13 strains of Lactobacillus Bacteria in Immunity Fuel. These bacteria are organic and are taken from fruits and vegetables. Eighteen years of research and $2.5m have been invested to evolve these bacteria into a super strain that are resistant to many of the things that could kill them. The formula also contains all of their favourite foods so they do not compete with each other to protect their food source.

Q. If the bacteria are heat resistant why do I have to refrigerate the product?
A. The bacteria in Immunity Fuel have been bred to withstand 55 °C for up to a week, and therefore Immunity Fuel does not need to be refrigerated to keep the bacteria alive. However as it is a food, for ultimate protection of the nutrients once opened you may wish to keep your Immunity Fuel refrigerated like any other food, or kept in a cool dry place.

Q. How long does the product last?

Q. Can I use this product as a starter for yoghurt?
A. Yes the bacteria are alive and therefore Immunity Fuel makes an excellent starter for yoghurt. Use 1 teaspoon of Immunity Fuel per litre of milk.

Q. I feel sick after taking Immunity Fuel, what is happening?
A. Some people experience what is called a “healing response". Most people are very toxic from the effects of prescription drugs, bad eating habits and an accumulation of preservatives eaten over the years. Once the body starts to receive proper nutrients and the good bacteria start to destroy the bad bacteria a healing response may follow. This is a good sign - it means the body is detoxifying itself and it is important to continue taking the product throughout the healing process to ensure the health benefits are realised. Some people experience aches or pains, some flu like symptoms, diarrhoea, or a general unwell feeling. This can last up to a week. If it becomes too uncomfortable then take less Immunity Fuel until the healing response passes. Also drink lots of water to assist the elimination process.

Q. When I first took Immunity Fuel I felt better but now all my symptoms have come back even worse than ever. Why is this?
A. It takes years for the body to decline in health. When you start the road to recovery you walk back up the road of decline. You do not instantly move to good health, the body has to heal itself again and this takes time. Many experience the hit of feeling good and then as the body goes through its healing response you may feel bad for a while. If you had a particular problem that went away it may just have gone into dormancy. When the body starts to heal itself a battle erupts with the problem trying to survive and this battle is what is possibly being experienced as a feeling of “worse than ever". Follow the advice given in the healing response answer above.

Q. I am allergic to one of the ingredients should I still take it?
A. More than likely since the ingredients have been pre-digested by the bacteria you should have no problem. However it is prudent to be careful so try just a ½ teaspoon and see how your body responds. Most allergies to foods are the result of the improper balance of bacteria in your intestinal tract. You may find after using the product that these allergies disappear.

Q. I am currently taking Apple Cider Vinegar before every meal. Will the vinegar have a negative effect on the Immunity Fuel?
A. The apple cider vinegar will not harm the bacteria in Immunity Fuel as they have been bred to withstand such things. Once the cider vinegar is in the gut it becomes alkaline which is one reason why it is so good for us. I would suggest that you do take it separately though. Other than that they will compliment each other very well.

Q. What tests have been done to prove your live bacteria actually makes it through the stomach acid "alive" and then into the intestines still "alive"?
A. Over 18 years of research and 2.5 million dollars of investment was spent to develop a super strain of bacteria that is contained in Immunity Fuel. The main killers of bacteria were identified, which include anti-biotic therapy, colas, synthetic ascorbic acid, heat, cold, fluorides, chlorine's, preservatives, salt, alcohol, and stress, and through a unique process the bacteria contained in Immunity Fuel have been evolved to be resistant to most of these killers. This resulted in a super strain of bacteria that have the power to overcome even the most stubborn bad bacteria, yeasts and stomach environments.

Q. How do I introduce Immunity Fuel to people?
A. People have to realize that most disease is an effect of poor nutrition and a symptom of an intestinal tract that has been compromised. The single greatest thing we can do to protect our health is to replace the bacteria that are responsible for all nutrient absorption, the making of enzymes and getting rid of the bad bacteria. Add to this a nutrient saturation formula that provides all the essential nutrients from organic whole food sources. This daily ritual will become the most important thing you can do in life. Once people realize the relationship of bacteria, nutrients and good health, then it becomes very easy to introduce Immunity Fuel to them.

Q. Many people ask if Immunity Fuel will help this problem or that problem how do I respond?
A. We are not Medical Practitioners so we make no claims. However the body heals itself and the Doctor takes the fee. Immunity Fuel provides the raw materials the body needs in order to heal itself. The body is a complex chemical factory capable of healing itself of any problem as long as it has the raw materials in the form of whole food nutrients available and as long as the intestinal tract is healthy with the proper balance of good and bad bacteria. The secret to combating any problem in the body is to unleash and assist its potential heal itself. We do this by providing the whole food nutrients that assist the immune system. The front line defence and offense of the immune system is the friendly bacteria. Then having a vast array of nutrients in the form of amino acids, anti oxidants, vitamins, minerals and enzymes provides the needed raw materials so the immune system has what it needs to get the job done.

Q. What proof do I have that Immunity Fuel will help me?
A. The only proof in the world is in the experience. No matter how much documentation we provide the only real judge is you. Try the product for yourself and then make up your own mind!
