Spring Essentials – Our top products to give you a boost after a long winter
By BioCare 6 months ago 18674 Views

After what has seemed like a never ending, cold, dark winter, the scent of spring is finally in the air and warmer weather is on the horizon. And while this change in season is known for a household clean, what about our bodies that we have perhaps neglected over the last few months? Or perhaps you dread the upcoming pollen season and need to support your immunity? To compensate for nutrient losses and drains on our body systems at the end of this dark season, our Nutrition team have picked out some Spring Essentials to give you an immune and antioxidant boost, promote tissue repair, and to support your gut bacteria, giving our bodies a bit of a spring clean.

Quercetin Plus



Quercetin Plus is our team’s and our practitioners’ favourite for supporting immunity and providing potent antioxidant support all year round, but especially around spring and summer time. It combines the powerful flavonoid quercetin with bromelain, sourced from pineapple, as well as a highly-concentrated nettle extract and vitamin C for immune and antioxidant support. Nettle also aids circulation. It’s a high potency product, providing 900mg of quercetin, 150mg of nettle extract, 90mg of vitamin C, and 54mg of bromelain per daily dose. It is suitable for vegans, and uses the highest quality nutrients with no unnecessary additives.

Directions:

• One capsule taken three times daily with food or as professionally directed

• Not suitable during pregnancy & breastfeeding

• Not suitable for children


Vitamin C Powder


This is our long-standing classic in the BioCare range. Vitamin C Powder provides a high potency vitamin C, which comes in a powder form for flexible dosing. We use a low-acidity form of vitamin C as magnesium ascorbate, so this is well-tolerated and easy on the stomach. Per daily intake provides 1600mg (1.6g) vitamin C, which can be easily added to liquids (e.g. water/ juice) or to your favourite breakfast smoothie! This is an ideal vitamin C product to take alongside your multinutrient for that extra vitamin C boost, and comes in 2 different sizes 60g and 250g, perfect to share with the family. Being a very simple formula, with no additives, this is child-friendly at a reduced dose, or can be titrated up to a higher dose depending on your needs. This is a great all-round option to boost your antioxidant intake daily or for when you’re feeling a little run-down.

Directions:

• 1/3 teaspoon taken twice daily with a meal

• Suitable during pregnancy and breastfeeding at 1/3 teaspoon a day (check for vitamin C intake if taking other supplements)

• Children’s dose: A pinch from 3 years, 1/4 tsp from 9 years, full dose from 14 year


Vitamin C Rosehip Complex

If you want something more than vitamin C, opt for our Vitamin C Rosehip Complex which provides a high dose of vitamin C with flavonoids and berry extracts in a convenient powder form, for immune, energy, and collagen support. A daily dose provides an optimum amount of vitamin C – at 1g per teaspoon, with flavonoids rutin, hesperidin, bilberry, rosehip and minerals such as zinc and manganese. Rosehip has traditionally been used as a nutrient dense and therapeutic food. It is a rich source of vitamin C, B vitamins, micronutrients and phytochemicals. Vitamin C Rosehip Complex is completely vegan, doesn’t contain any unnecessary additives, and gives you flexibility to use as little or as much as you need.

Directions:

• 1 teaspoon (approx. 5g) or as professionally directed, stirred directly into water or blended into a smoothie. Take daily with food.

• Children’s dose: ¼ teaspoon from 4 and ½ teaspoon from 9
