this means Frequently Asked Questions
If you have any question that you would like to share with the others please do not hesitate and send as your question by an electronic mail. We would be happy to write the answer in our Immulina webb page and share that information or that knowledge with the others.
Immulina and vaccination
Three-year-old boy has been just vaccinated against hepatitis A. The mother asks if she can give him Immulina in such situation?
Answer: Immulina supports innate immunity mainly. A strong innate (congenital) immunity is essential that vaccination will become effective. In addition, good immunity ensures that vaccination is safe. That is why it is not only possible, but it is worthwhile to administer Immulina to all people (including children) before, during and after vaccinations.
Taste of Immulina
The mother of a 6-year-old daughter asks what to do if the daughter does not want to drink immulina syrup because of its taste?
Answer: Immulina tastes acceptable to the waste majority of children. Although Immulina is not very "delicious", it tastes sufficiently well that the child would take as much preparation as it is recommended.
However, if the child definitely does not like its taste, it is best to serve Immulina well chilled (from the fridge, directly). One has to notice that such small amount of cold syrup – 1 teaspon (5 ml) should not have negative impact on throat health, taking into account that the child does not have sore throat in this very moment
Sugar in Immulina syrup
Many parents ask if the high sugar content of the syrup may have any negative impact on children's health? Especially when you hear so much now that you should pay attention not to give your children high-sugar drinks.
Answer: Since the amount of administered Immulina syrup is very small, from 2.5 to 5 ml (i.e. from ½ to 1 teaspoon), despite the fact that the syrup contains approx. 50% sugar, the amount of given sugar is negligible and cannot have any negative impact children health, as long as they do not suffer form diabetes. Additionally, we plan to introduce sugar-free Immulina in the near future.
Please also notice that doctors’ and dietitians’ reservations are related to the sweetened drinks that children drink a lot, by several glasses. These drinks contain about from 10 to 20% of sugar (and more) and provide 20 to 40 grams of sugar in 1 glass (200 ml) of such a drink. This is approx. 20 times and more than amount of sugar the child can get in Immulina syrup in a day.
What is it best time to take Immulina?
Many people ask when is it best time to give their baby Immulina? When is the best time for me to take Immulina?
Answer: Immulina, in a supplemental dose (supplementing daily diet), can be taken on a daily basis. The average supplementation dose is 1 teaspoon* or 1 capsule once a day. The every day consumption applies to small childern when immune system is still immature and people in an elderly age when immune system may weaken due to aiging.
Immulina can be also be taken periodically when there is a seasonal increased risk of infection (colds, flu) - that ocurs in the fall / winter period (October - November) and early spring (March - April).
* small children take ½ teaspoon = 2.5 ml of syrup.
How long should one take Immulina?
Answer: The answer to the previous question contains also a part of the answer to this question.
People with impaired immune system may take Immulina constantly every day. Prof. Pasco and his team that developed Immulina take the preparation regularly as a preventive measure 1 capsule once a day.
Other people should take Immulina periodically, i.e. in situations where good immunity is particularly needed - for example in the autumn and winter period or in periods of intense exposure to UV radiation, which may reduce the immunity of our skin (holidays by the sea, skiing in sunny weather) that could manifest in herpes zoster attacks.
Sediment at the bottom of Immulina syrup bottle
There is sediment at the bottom of the bottle. Is this normal? May I give such syrup to my child?
Answer: Immulina syrup forms a water suspension. Suspension is a heterogeneous mixture of a fluid (water in our case) that contains solid particles sufficiently large for sedimentation. Immulina provides large compounds of high molecular weight and insoluble in water: spirulina extract, baker’s yeast extract and acerola extract. They are responsible for the immune active properties of Immulina.
This is why Immulina syrup is a suspension and has a tick texture. Nevertheless, some of the active ingredients may be deposited and may form sediment, which quite normal (does not constitute production fault) and just requires good bottle shake before each use.
