The Citrus Immunity Blend Delivering strong on the big 4: antioxidants, fibre, vitamins & minerals, this Immunity blend supports your overall health, and specifically works to bolster your immunity.
This blend has particularly high concentrations of:
Vitamin C, which is necessary for fighting bacterial infections, and the growth, development and repair of all body tissues. It's involved in many body functions, including formation of collagen, absorption of iron, the general immune system, wound healing, and the maintenance of cartilage, bones, and teeth. Daily dietary intake of Vitamin C is essential for good health because your body doesn’t produce or store it.
Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant that may help reduce free radical damage and slow the aging process of your cells, and also helps regulate and maintain a healthy immune system.
Vitamin B6 encourages our bodies to make glutathione (my fave antioxidant for the role it plays in reducing oxidative stress, which we know is largely responsible for much of the health issues we have collectively in society). Vitamin B6 is also ups our antibodies to fight off infections, and is involved in keeping the lymph nodes, thymus and spleen healthy.
Vitamin A is a micronutrient that is crucial for maintaining vision, and promoting growth and development. It is known as an anti-inflammatory vitamin because of its critical role in enhancing immune function.
Iron is one of the most vital minerals and helps to fight against anaemia. The role of iron in immunity is necessary for immune cells associated with the generation of a specific response to infection.
Selenium supports your body by making glutathione, which is an antioxidant that powers up your immune systems' front-line bug-killers, a type of white blood cell called T-cells.
Zinc is a superstar mineral that enables our immune cells to develop and function properly, and helps protect against collateral damage when we're fighting an infection. Zinc has been shown to decrease the length and severity of the common cold.
Healthy Fats help your body to absorb up to 15 times more of the plant-based nutrients. Promotes long-lasting energy and satiation, and radiant hair, skin and nails.
Protein is an absolute must for a robust immune system. It is vital to build and repair body tissue and fight viral and bacterial infections. Immune system powerhouses such as antibodies and immune system cells rely on protein. Too little protein in the diet may lead to symptoms of weakness, fatigue, apathy, and poor immunity.
Fibre fine-tunes the immune system and may help prevent chronic inflammation.
Potassium helps maintain a robust immune system.
