When the body experiences injuries, illnesses or surgery, our need for VitaminC is higher than normal to assist the recovery process.
Not only does VitaminC help the body absorb iron, it also assists the formation of collagen, contributing to glowing skin and maintenance of bones, blood vessels and muscle.
Recent research has found that although daily supplementation of VitaminC does not reduce individual risk of getting a cold, symptoms are reduced and the duration of experiencing a cold appear to be shorter. VitaminC can't be stored in the body so is needed through daily diet and/or supplementation.
OUR BEST-SELLING RECOMMENDATIONS
(All made in the UK + GMP Certified)
Most VitaminC blends on the market are based on synthetic ascorbic acid but our VegaminC formula contains real food ingredients including acerola cherry, blackcurrant and rosehip for better absorption by the body.
Vegan and gluten/dairy/soy free, the VitaminC content is 156% of the recommended daily allowance per easy to swallow capsule.
Multiple studies show mushrooms to be extremely potent immune boosters – a recent clinical trial saw healthy adults double their immune cells in number and their Gamma T cells increase by a huge 60% after just one month of consuming 10grams of shiitake mushrooms daily.
If you’re not a fan of the flavour or texture of mushrooms, our Organic Antioxidant Complex formula combines shiitake, chaga, maitake, reishi and lion’s mane mushrooms with astragalus root and black pepper for a completely organic, vegan and gluten/dairy/soy free blend with naturally occurring VitaminC.
The active ingredient in turmeric (curcumin) is much more concentrated in our Organic Turmeric + Black Pepper supplement (158mg per capsule) than in the cooking spice which amounts to around 3%.
An ancient ayurvedic antioxidant, curcumin has proven antibacterial and antiviral properties making it a powerful ingredient to ward off colds during the winter months as well as reducing inflammation which can onset serious illnesses.
The addition of black pepper in a turmeric supplement (sometimes labelled ‘piperine’) is essential to fully absorb curcumin into the body and consuming the supplement with a meal or snack allows the added healthy fats to help with absorption further.
A vegan and gluten/dairy/soy free formula.
Consuming a diet rich in vitamins (primarily A, C, D and K) keeps your immune system working optimally so incorporating lots of dark green, red and yellow fruits and vegetables is a great way to ensure you are able to protect yourself against colds.
This may not always be possible for many lifestyle reasons, so the Super MINT blend could be a convenient and practical alternative – combining 35 organic food ingredients into a vegan, dairy/soy free powder without any artificial flavours which can easily be added to smoothies, dressings or soups (off the heat) for a nutritious and natural immunity boost.
