Giving back health to vulnerable, at risk members of our community through nutritional intervention.
Our goal is to give 10 million doses of premium, therapeutically active nutritional health supplements to charities and non-profits who support vulnerable and at risk individuals, many who live below the poverty line.
We've given ourselves 5 years to reach our goal.
Help us do it in 3.
1 in 6 Australians live below the poverty line
Did you know that 1 in 6 Australians live below the poverty line? That homelessness and housing insecurity is rising the quickest among our youth and women? That 13% young people have experienced homelessness and account for 24% of recent homelessness statistics?
Alongside increased risk of physical and mental health conditions, these vulnerable groups are also at risk of nutritional deficiencies. Nutritional deficiencies have been shown to increase the likelihood of mental health problems and physical ailments.
Can you see the cycle?
When we discovered that there’s been a rise in youth and female homelessness, we decided that for the next three years we will focus on supporting these two groups. If we want to create a future that’s full of healthy, happier adults, we need to look after our young people and the women who birth, support and surround them.
We believe that we all have a responsibility to care for our communities. We believe that this is key to a healthier, happier world overall.
What are our give back products?
We’re super proud that the products we donate are TGA-regulated, therapeutically active medicines. They are not food products like others you might find on the chemist or supermarket shelves. Each capsule contains ingredients at clinical dosage, meaning that the quantity included has been shown to get results. These are evidence-based products, purposefully designed to help people get better.
Our current give back product is Immunity Plus. It contains Vitamin C, Vitamin D and zinc – all at therapeutic levels – and is designed to improve immunity.
Immunity Plus is also available for retail through our online shop.
Dose for dose
We make quarterly donations, dose for dose. For each dose you purchase, we donate a dose to selected Australian charities and non-profits who support individuals living below the poverty line. This applies whether you buy direct from us or through our distributors.
If you buy a pack containing 60 capsules, that’s 60 doses. We then add 60 doses to our give back tab, ready for the next round of donations.
To allow time for a supplement to work, we donate a minimum of one month supply at a time. Our current give back product, Immunity Plus, contains two months’ worth of capsules.
We make quarterly donations of therapeutically active supplements
Our focus for quarterly donations is on nutritional supplements. In August 2021, we donated 2,000 bottles of Give Back Health Immunity Plus to Happy Boxes, Brisbane Youth Service and Good360. With 60 capsules per bottle, that’s 120,000 doses donated (equivalent to an RRP of $60,000).
Winter in Australia brings an increased risk of lowered immunity and a higher chance of catching colds and flus, and individuals living below the poverty line or experiencing hardship face an increased risk of lowered immunity. They are unlikely to have the disposable income to purchase things like vitamins and minerals, which could support their immune system, and we wanted to improve their chances of better health.
