We all know vitamin C is vital for our health, in particular, for our immunity, energy and collagen production. But did you know? Most of us aren’t getting enough vitamin C through diet alone. This is why we have a wide variety of vitamin C products, all of which are vegan friendly and come in various forms to suit your every need, such as liquid, powder, capsule, or tablet.

Watch our latest vlog, where we look into these further to see which option might be the best one for you.

Top Digestion Supplements

By Olenka Quintrell 1 years ago 24706 Views

This year’s festivities may be a little different to usual, however, we still might not be able to avoid overindulging in mince pies and mulled wine, which may become the cause of significant digestive discomfort, if we are not careful.

Our digestive health is also linked to our immune system, and overall health and wellbeing, so now more than ever we need to look after our guts, so we can enjoy the holiday season in a happy and healthy way.

We have put together our top five digestive products that can be used to support gut health.

Post-Infection Support

By Clinical Nutrition 1 years ago 5344 Views

Following on from our Low Immunity and Supporting Immunity series, we hope that you feel empowered with an understanding about how to comprehensively and holistically reduce your risk of infection in the first place, and support yourself if and when you have an infection. Now, we are shifting our focus towards how best to support ourselves post-infection since this is often characterised by symptoms which have a significant impact on an individual’s quality of life.

We often under-estimate the importance of supporting our immunity until we fall ill, and also how long it can take to recover until we experience lingering symptoms following an infection. Recovery from an infection ‘normally’ lasts one to two weeks. For some, however, this recovery process can last months, even years, characterised by prolonged post-infection symptoms, such as chronic fatigue, brain fog, muscle aches, and loose bowel movements. So, why do some individuals experience this prolonged recovery period, and others do not?

Identifying the underlying drivers of lingering post-infection symptoms, and how they can go on to affect our physical and mental health, facilitates implementation of tailored nutrition and lifestyle interventions which have the most chance of helping individuals to feel better. This is important now more than ever given the emerging problem of ‘post-viral fatigue/ syndrome.’

Over the next few blogs, we will delve into the ‘why’ and ‘how’ behind these prolonged post-infection symptoms, focusing on three integral areas: energy, cognitive health, and digestion.

Supporting Your Immunity

In the first instalment of our Immunity Series, we explored the various factors which can increase our risk of low immunity, with a view to you learning how to nourish your immune system at a deep level. Moving forward, we want to empower you with an understanding of the nutrition and lifestyle ‘tools’ which you can use to support your immunity in day-to-day life.

Everything You Need To Know About Vitamin D

By Olenka Quintrell 1 years ago 38866 Views

With the reduction in daily sunlight exposure, and the higher risk of infection during the cooler months, it is essential that we work towards optimising our vitamin D status for immune and bone support in particular.

The bare minimum requirement for adequate vitamin D synthesis is sufficient daily exposure of our skin to sunlight. It therefore comes as no surprise that 25% of the UK population may be deficient, especially when you consider that we live in the northern hemisphere with heavily indoors-based lifestyles, particularly during the year 2020! It is therefore vital that we increase our daily intake of vitamin D over these cooler months to mitigate for our reduced ability to make enough of this nutrient at this time of the year.
