Immunity Supplements: Self Defence For Your Body


Our immune systems are responsible for protecting our bodies against pathogens such as bacteria, viruses, parasites and fungi. Getting plenty of sleep and eating a balanced diet, can help to boost your immunity. Likewise, engaging in exercise and managing stress levels can also help to ensure this vital system is functioning optimally.

Implementing vitamins and supplements into your wellness routine can provide extra immune support where diets may be lacking in nutrients. Read on to learn more about our top immune-function supplements.

Defence Shots

Myvitamins Orange & Mango flavour Defence Shots provide a fruity dose of immune-supporting vitamins and minerals.

These vitamins are especially beneficial for reducing tiredness and fatigue and protecting cells against oxidative stress. 1,2,3,4,5

To further boost immunoprotective properties, these Defence Shots are fortified with 250mg of Wellmune® (beta-glucan.)

Vitamin D Gummies


Our cells naturally synthesise vitamin D during exposure to UVB rays from the sun. This means that during the winter months it can be difficult to maintain sufficient levels of this vitamin.

Deficiency in vitamin D has been associated with fatigue, muscle weakness, mental illness and increased susceptibility to infection and autoimmune responses. (8) With research suggesting that 1 in 5 UK adults don’t have enough vitamin D, these gummies are a convenient way to ensure you’re getting your daily dose. 9

Not only is each gummy packed with 25μg of vitamin D, but they also come in a delicious Orange flavour. Try them for yourself here:

Chewable Vitamin C Tablets


1250% of your essential daily recommended vitamin C in a simple, chewable tablet. Along with immunity support, vitamin C has a variety of additional benefits for the body. This vitamin helps to reduce tiredness, protects our cells from oxidative stress, and contributes to normal psychological and nervous system function. 1

The main source of vitamin C in the diet comes from fruit and vegetables, with good sources including citrus fruits, peppers, strawberries and broccoli. However, as many as 45% of UK adults do not meet the recommended 5 portions of fruit and vegetables per day. (10) This means these individuals are at increased risk of vitamin C deficiency. For those struggling to get enough vitamin C-rich foods into their diet, a supplement can help to support your levels from within.
