about us

Immunecare was started in 2001 by Neil Wootten and Janine Burns. Janine had struggled with gut and immune problems for many years, and Neil had IBS for thirty years. They tried conventional and nutritional approaches, neither of which worked well. Finally through careful research they both achieved health. 

The motivation for all enterprises associated with immunecare is:

  • Helping you to get well 
  • Understanding your problems 
  • Supporting you every step of the way 

We 

  • guarantee to do our utmost to provide you with high quality and effective products, at a reasonable price. We also 
  • guarantee to give you as much support as we can on your road back to health. 

Nothing gives us more pleasure than hearing customer comments like these,

"I would still be very ill if it was not for Immunecare"

and 

"I tried for twenty years to get well, seeing all sorts of people, and Immunecare sorted me out."

Neil, a Sports Scientist and PhD in Nutritional Sciences, and Janine an alternative practitioner, have researched products from all over the world before carefully selecting the best ones to manufacture. All products have to have good science and research behind them. The result is a range of products that really work, and do “exactly what it says on the tin”!
