Best Immunity Supplements For The New Year | Be Prepared

Keeping your immune system healthy and strong is vital to prevent illnesses and infections. Your immune system is a complex collection of cells, processes, and chemicals, designed to defend your body against toxins and bacteria (10).

Research and studies have shown that certain vitamins and supplements can help boost your immune system and your protection against different diseases.

Why Is Immunity Important?

A strong immune system will encourage your body to fight against sicknesses like colds and the flu. It can also help you recover from injuries quicker and keep your energy levels high. Without immunity, bacteria would make you very sick and your body would be more open to developing diseases.  This is why the elder generation and babies get sick more often as their immune systems cannot defend themselves effectively and usually, they need extra protection.

How To Boost Immunity Naturally

Naturally boosting your immunity to illnesses can be as simple as leading a healthy lifestyle. This can involve:

  • Participating in regular exercise
  • Not smoking
  • Washing/sanitising your hands regularly
  • Avoiding excess alcohol consumption
  • Eating a balanced diet with plenty of fruits and vegetables
  • Ensuring you are getting enough sleep (at least 7 hours is the recommended amount)
  • Adding supplements into your diet

Vitamin C

One of the biggest immune system supporters, vitamin C is a popular supplement taken to protect against infections (13). It acts as an antioxidant, meaning it is able to protect your body from toxins that cause inflammation in your body. Maintaining your vitamin C levels is vital for optimal health as your body doesn’t produce it on its own, nor does it store it.

Vitamin C also helps the cellular response to pathogens as well as protecting our cells from oxidative damage (1). This vitamin also contributes to iron absorption (2), which is also essential for immunity.

Vitamin D Gummies

Vitamin D, is a fat-soluble nutrient vital to the functioning of your immune system (7). Also known as the ‘sunshine vitamin’, vitamin D is responsible for maintaining healthy bones and teeth (9) and decreases inflammation (11). A lot of people suffer from vitamin D deficiency, which negatively affects your immune system and leaves you prone to illnesses (12). During winter periods when there isn’t much sunlight, supplements can help to boost your vitamin D intake.

Zinc & Magnesium

An anti-inflammatory and antioxidant, Zinc plays the role of making all your immune cells function properly (3), whilst also promoting healthy hair (4) and supporting cognitive function (5). Several studies suggest that low zinc levels can increase the risk of viral infections (17).

The level of magnesium in the blood is an important factor in the immune system’s ability to tackle pathogens and cancer cells. Studies have shown that cells need a sufficient quantity of magnesium in order to operate efficiently (22).

Our Zinc & Magnesium Tablets make it super easy to ensure these two supplements are included in your diet. These tablets are expertly formulated with 20mg zinc, 300mg magnesium and 7.4mg vitamin B6, to support your everyday well-being.
