Feeling rubbish? Try our 7 day Immune Intensive

With winter fast approaching, coughs, colds, viruses and flu are all around us. Which raises the question, how can we protect ourselves?

The immune system is the body’s defence mechanism that fights viruses and bacteria, clears out damaged tissue and destroys abnormal cells. A healthy immune system is sufficiently equipped to deal with foreign pathogens and most of the time infections are dealt with very quickly without any symptoms. However, there are conditions in which the immune system may be overwhelmed, unable to cope and allowing the infection to take hold of us.

Contributing factors include nutrient deficiencies, age, and medical treatments such as steroid and antibiotic use. Chronic stress is very common factor for most of us, having a huge impact on the immune system. The body’s response to stress suppresses our immune system, which can leave the body more vulnerable to infection.

With that being said, there are ways we can support ourselves during winter time.

Nutrients have a pivotal role in our immune system, having a direct impact on a cellular level. So when we are feeling under the weather, our product Immune Intensive is specially formulated to help get you back on your feet as quickly as possible.

  • It is a potent complex of elderberry, sage, beta glucans, vitamins and minerals
  • Vitamin A and vitamin D contribute to the healthy functioning of the immune system
  • Zinc supports the integrity of the respiratory tract
  • Vitamin C also supports the immune system, the integrity of mucous membranes and protects cells from free radicals
  • It comes in a 7 day supply, so is easy and convenient to take as soon as you start to feel unwell
  • It can be easily mixed into a glass of water, juice or smoothie and with a base of berry extracts it tastes great too!
  • This product is also hypoallergenic, dairy free and suitable for vegetarians.

It is important that we do the best we can to protect ourselves from the winter bugs. Arming ourselves with a good diet and additional supplementation can provide us with optimum baseline nutrition throughout winter.
