Immunity Fuel contains 13 strains of good friendly bacteria. Most yoghurts only contain Acidophilus, and most other probiotic products only contain a few of the strains. These bacteria work in harmony as some strains need nutrients that are generated by others in order to perform their tasks. More importantly each of their food sources (all of which are contained in Immunity Fuel) need to be present so that the bacteria will live in harmony with one another and not kill each other off to protect their food source.
Bacteria are the first line of defence of the immune system. A proper balance of bacteria in the intestinal tract is the single most important issue in maintaining good health. They are responsible to provide essential enzymes, to make nutrients available to the body, to clean up cholesterol, to manufacture B vitamins, to clean out the lower bowels of encrusted matter, to destroy bad bacteria and eliminate toxins in the body just to name a few of their functions. Most disease begins in the gut or colon and it is the good bacteria's job to insure a healthy gut and colon. All life on the planet depends upon the proper balance of bacteria being present including the human body.
Beneficial Bacteria reside in the body's Intestines and can endogenously manufacture Vitamins:
Biotin, Choline, Folic Acid, Inositol, Para Aminobenzoic Acid (PABA), Vitamin B2, Vitamin B5, Vitamin B6, and Vitamin K.
Therefore the single most important step in maintaining a healthy body is the daily replacement of good bacteria that are contained in Immunity Fuel.
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 and yeast. We have one of the only organic bacteria strains in the world. They have not been genetically altered and they are obtained from fruits and vegetables, unlike most others, which are grown out of faecal matter. These are living viable bacteria eager to re-colonize your gut and provide you with a healthy intestinal environment that will promote wellness.
2 Strains of Beneficial Yeasts
Saccharomyces boulardii is an internationally acclaimed probiotic used in the treatment of diarrhoea, IBS, IBD and Candida overgrowth. Although S. boulardii is a yeast itself, studies have shown it to reduce the levels of C. albicans (which causes candida overgrowth in the body) by up to 90%.
S. boulardii is used for treating and preventing diarrhea, including infectious types such as rotaviral diarrhea in children, diarrhea caused by gastrointestinal (GI) take-over (overgrowth) by "bad" bacteria in adults, travellers diarrhea, and diarrhea associated with tube feedings. It is also used to prevent and treat diarrhea caused by the use of antibiotics.
S. boulardii is also used for general digestion problems, irritable bowel syndrome, inflammatory bowel syndrome (IBD, Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis), Lyme disease, a bowel disorder called relapsing Clostridium difficilecolitis, and bacterial overgrowth in short bowel syndrome.
Some people use S. boulardii for lactose intolerance, urinary tract infections, vaginal yeast infections, high cholestoral levels, hives, fever blisters, canker sores, teen-age acne.
A probiotic in terms of its beneficial effects, S. cerevisiae has many properties from the most basic to highly advanced. This nutritional yeast is high in protein, fiber, B vitamins and folic acid, as well as being gluten-free. It also has the presence of beta-1,3 glucans, which have been shown to stimulate the body's immune system as well as being capable of lowering LDL cholesterol levels, assisting in the healing of wounds and aiding in the prevention of infections. Several studies indicate that beta-glucans can prevent the formation of tumors and the development of cancers.
