An unwavering force.

Without it, you would not be here.

What do you get when you take it away?

This clues the word GRAVITY - a fundamental force of nature, without which life could not exist.

What do you get when you take it away?

If we take 'IT' away from the word GRAVITY, we get GRAVY!

I think the answer is

Gravy

An unwavering force.

Gravity is the most unwavering (constant, strong and steady) force there is

Without it, you would not be here.

Without gravity, or atoms would be floating in space

What do you get when you take it away?

If you remove the letters “IT” from GRAVITY you’re left with GRAVY
