Frequently Asked Questions
Is this for life?
Yes, as you are genetically disposed to food intolerance you will need to see this as a lifestyle change.
Do I need to treat my food as well as take daily?
Yes, it is a 2 step plan and to gain full benefits you need to do both. Refer to our 2 Step Plan.
Why can’t I just buy dry ginger spice or fresh ginger from the supermarket?
Both have useful benefits from their oils but they lack the active enzymes in Biohawk Ginger, Turmeric and Galangal.
Is it safe to take when you are pregnant?
Yes there is no danger and it is highly recommended to take while pregnant. Ginger is well documented for its treatment of morning sickness and nausea.
Can babies take it?
Babies can take from birth with a drop under their tongue before feeds. (See “Babies and Milk” Document)
Do I need to take both Relief and Digest Easy?
Digest Easy is an alternative to Relief possessing the same blend of gingers as Relief. It has the advantage of being a solution that can be taken directly, but has the disadvantage of requiring it to be stored frozen and kept in the refrigerator during use. Relief is a dry and shelf-stable product that has to be mixed in 40ml of water or juice to be taken.
Can I mix with juice?
Yes but only the minimum necessary for taking the ginger (approximately 40ml) and not in Pineapple or Pawpaw juice.
Can I just add into my breakfast shake as my daily dose?
No, the aim when taking the ginger is to take it in a relatively concentrated form so it can digest the proline-rich proteins (PRP’s) within you. In your food you are adding a small amount of the ginger to digest PRP’s in the food.
How much do I need to take?
This is dependant on weight, please see the label on the product for instructions or refer to our product description page. Some instances will require you to take at 3 times the daily amount, please see your stockist or call Biohawk on +617 3376 9518 for more information.
Can I refreeze DigestEasy?
Yes, DigestEasy can be refrozen again and again.
Can I put DigestEasy into smaller containers?
Yes, please insure the container you put it into is sterile and then refreeze if necessary.
I have noticed that sometimes the colour, smell and even taste of the same kind of herb will vary when ordered at different times. Why?
Because our products are “just as nature intended” there may be some variations in the taste and colour of each batch for each product.
The taste will vary from batch to batch due to the seasonal time of harvest. The sun and the amount of water the plants receive are directly responsible for the ripeness of the plants. Just as with any vegetable, you will have a different taste depending upon the growing process.
As truly natural foods, Biohawk’s products are not standardised products and may vary in shade and taste. We therefore cannot guarantee that every bottle you buy from us will be the same as the last, but it will still be abundant in health promoting properties and we can guarantee that the enzyme levels are standardised to always be of the same level.
The natural oils present in our products differ from season to season and are also dependent on the individual farm. Our aim is to provide the same high-quality enzymes directly to you for improved health and nutrition.
Are there any supplements that inhibit Biohawk's food enzymes?
Supplements that inhibit Biohawk’s food enzymes
Specific metal supplements, vitamin supplements, and baby formulas that include metals such as zinc, iron, copper, manganese, cobalt, and chromium inhibit the ability of the enzymes to digest proteins because these metals bind to the enzymes’ active site. Biohawk’s 2-step plan releases all the nutrients in food including metals after the enzymes have digested the proline-rich proteins. The need for metal supplements is reduced. Silver metal colloid drinks, and oxidising compounds also inhibit the enzymes. The oxidising compounds include chlorine added directly into the water supply especially in chicken sheds, and peroxide that some people consume because of its perceived health benefits, or because they unknowingly consume because peroxide levels are high in some honeys, vegetable oils, and especially in green smoothies made with high-powered blenders that break down cells. Anion supplements where the anion is large, such as selenite, also block the enzymes.
The solution is to take any specific supplement prescribed for a clinical deficiency at a different time in the day from when you take the Biohawk products (separated by at least an hour), choose honeys and oils that are not rich in peroxide, and use a lower speed blender conditioning the greens with Biohawk’s ginger before blending.
