Q. WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE 3 RAWBIOTICS PRODUCTS?
All Rawbiotics™ products contain the same strength of probiotic bacteria. The only difference is the added herbs in each product that make them more specific for a certain need:
A daily probiotic that restores the natural bacteria needed for optimum health. This is your preventative and maintenance product. You are taking Rawbiotics™ DAILY to ensure that you have optimum gut function that doesn’t develop problems in the future. Contains a selection of herbs that have been found to help with immunity, energy and general health.
A probiotic that works to correct imbalances that lead to digestive disorders such as IBS, bloating, acid reflux, diarrhea and constipation and restores long-term healthy balance to the gastro-intestinal tract. Contains a selection of herbal extracts that work with the live probiotic to address the cause of digestive issues and restore long-term healthy balance to the gastro-intestinal tract.
A daily probiotic that provides natural bacteria needed for children’s health and growth. These essential bacteria improve the body’s ability to use nutrition, assisting with healthy growth and increasing the body’s ability to create natural vitamins and antibiotics. Rawbiotics™ KIDS includes a selection of herbal extracts specially chosen for children that work with the live probiotics that are needed for good health and growth.
Q. ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS?
Very seldom. Occasionally the body may start to detox and get rid of chemicals which have been in your system, resulting in mild diarrhea or gas. If this occurs too suddenly, just cut down quantity and increase slowly until the body is comfortable with it. Any side effects experienced will be as a result of the detox action of the beneficial bacteria. This is a good thing as it shows the body is cleansing itself.
Q. HOW MUCH SHOULD I TAKE IF I HAVE A COMPROMISED DIGESTIVE SYSTEM?
Everyone has a different ratio of microbes in their digestive tract. Our products contain antioxidants in large numbers, as well as very active beneficial bacteria. Individuals with compromised immune/digestive systems MUST start on lower dosages: for adults: 1 tablespoon (15ml) per day, and for children under the age of two, 1 teaspoon (5ml) per day. After a month one can start slowly increasing the dosage.
Q. WHEN SHOULD I TAKE THE PROBIOTIC?
Rawbiotics™ can be taken at any time. With or without meals, morning or evening.
Q. HOW DO RAWBIOTICS DIFFER TO OTHER PROBIOTICS?
The reason for Rawbiotics™ efficacy and results is not, as many people believe, the number of microbes present in the product but, rather the number of microbial species. Although lactic acid bacteria are the most predominant bacteria in the GI tract they cannot establish themselves without the natural symbioses they share with other types of microbes. In the natural world various classes of bacteria are utterly reliant upon each other for growth and stability, as can be seen by the diversity of microbial life in soils and plants. Unlike most probiotic products which contain freeze-dried strains of just one or two species of microbes, Rawbiotics™ closely mirrors the natural range of microbes that are found in our soils and food. It is the combination of these species which make Rawbiotics™ unique. This is what accounts for their efficacy and successes.
Q. CAN I TAKE RAWBIOTICS WITH OTHER MEDICATIONS?
Yes, you can. The gastro-intestinal tract’s healthy function relies on the presence of beneficial bacteria. Beneficial bacteria aid in digestion, correct pH balance (acidity), the processing of nutrients and the prevention of the build-up of harmful bacteria. Beneficial bacteria do not interfere with medication. In fact, they are almost completely killed off with the use of antibiotics and the immune system is hugely compromised by the toxins in most medical drugs. Taking Rawbiotics™ helps to protect the body from harmful toxins.
Q. CAN I GIVE RAWBIOTICS TO BABIES? WHAT AGE CAN THEY START TO TAKE THE PRODUCT AND WHAT DOSAGE?
Yes. The dosage depends on the age of baby. Newborn babies, a couple of drops. Increase with age to half teaspoon and then one teaspoon. Use Rawbiotics™ KIDS specially formulated for babies and children.
Q. CAN I USE RAWBIOTICS IN A NEBULIZER?
Yes, use as a substitute in the same dosage as the recommended pharmaceutical products.
Q. CAN I TAKE RAWBIOTICS IF I AM PREGNANT?
Yes, the products are 100% natural and safe to take.
Q. ARE RAWBIOTICS VEGAN FRIENDLY?
Yes, Rawbiotics™ are suitable for vegetarians and vegans. No animal derived products are used in the culturing or production of our products.
Q. ARE RAWBIOTICS SUITABLE FOR DIABETICS?
Yes, Rawbiotics™ are suitable for diabetics. There is only a small amount of sugar that goes into the product during the manufacturing process and this is used as food for the beneficial bacteria during the fermentation. By the time the product has fermented there is very little sugar in our product. We have done lab tests and the nutritional analysis of the product is:
Carbohydrates: Less than 1g/100ml
Of which total sugar: Less than 0.1g/100ml
Q. WHY ARE THERE WHITE FLAKES ON THE TOP?
This is the natural yeast that forms when the product is exposed to oxygen (in other words, once the seal is broken) Do not shake it, it is normal for it to be there.
Q. WHY SHOULD ONE NOT SHAKE THE PRODUCT?
Because the product is a “live” microbial product.
Q. CAN I REFRIGERATE THE PRODUCT?
No, it is a “live” microbial product. The microbes go dormant if refrigerated. Store at room temperature out of direct sunlight.
Q. HOW WILL I KNOW IF THE PRODUCT HAS GONE OFF?
You will definitely know! It will get a really “rotten” smell when it goes off. The product has a 2-year shelf life unopened and 6-8-week shelf life once the bottle has been opened.
