Immunity Supplements: Self Defence for Your Body

Immunity Supplements: Self Defence for Your Body

One thing we’d all love to know is how to best support our health and wellbeing. In addition to ensuring that our diet contains plenty of nutrient-rich foods, many of us turn to vitamins and supplements to give us a helping hand and provide a little extra support when it comes to our immune system. Supplements are great for those who struggle to get enough of certain nutrients into their diet. At Myvitamins, we have a range of great products that are designed to help boost your daily routine. Some, such as vitamin C, are designed to specifically help support the function of your immune system. Today, we’re going to take a look at some of the best-sellers in our immunity range, so that you can discover the best products to help you achieve your wellness goals.

Vitamin C

Vitamin C is the nutrient that’s probably best associated with immunity. Contributing to the normal functioning of the immune system, vitamin C also has numerous other benefits, including the reduction of tiredness and fatigue and protecting cells from oxidative stress. Good sources of vitamin C include a number of fruits and vegetables such as oranges, broccoli, strawberries and brussel sprouts. 

For those of us who struggle to get enough fruit and vegetables in their diet, an easy way to get the recommended amount of vitamin C is via supplements. Our Vitamin C Plus tablets contain high quality vitamin C: just one tablet twice a day will provide you with 2500% of your recommended daily amount (RDA). Plus, each tablet contains 40mg of rosehips, a natural source of plant bioflavonoids which can help with the absorption of vitamin C. Alternatively, if you regularly forget to take your daily tablet, our Vitamin C Powder could be the answer for you. This unflavoured powder is ready to mix and can be added to water, smoothies or foods for a convenient way to get your RDA. 

Zinc

Zinc is another important nutrient that plays a part in supporting your immune system. In addition to helping maintain normal immune system function, it has antioxidant properties to contribute towards protecting cells from oxidative stress. That’s not all – zinc is also known for its contribution to healthy hair and nails, and the maintenance of normal skin. While zinc can be found in foods such as meat, dairy and certain cereal products, many of us struggle to get enough of it in our usual diet, especially those on a vegetarian or vegan diet, and that’s where our Zinc Tablets come in. 

Our Zinc Tablets are a premium source of this essential mineral that are formulated to bring you 15% of your reference intake (RI) with just one tablet a day. In addition, each serving contains 60mg of vitamin C. If you’re looking for a zinc supplement that can help support your additional lifestyle goals, with the addition of magnesium, our Zinc & Magnesium Tablets contribute to a reduction in tiredness and fatigue as well as normal psychological function. With added vitamin B6 and copper, these capsules are a great option if you find yourself feeling a little sluggish.

Vitamin B Complex

Of course it’s not just our immunity that we need to take good care of, it’s our health and wellbeing overall. For a number of us, getting the right amount of essential B vitamins can be difficult, and that’s where our Vitamin B Plus Tablets come in. As a complete source of all 8 essential B vitamins, these are great for supporting your overall health and wellbeing goals. There’s Thiamine to support your heart health, Riboflavin and Niacin to support energy levels and help reduce tiredness, and Biotin to help maintain healthy skin, hair and nails. Just one tablet a day will get you on the right track with that all important vitamin B complex.

Ginseng

One of the many supplements we have in our selection is our Ginseng Capsules. Typically a herb that was used for centuries in traditional Chinese medicine, it could be that the compounds in ginseng – gintonin and ginsenosides – pose a number of potential health benefits. Ginseng has been found to have potential antiinflammatory effects and may even protect against oxidative stress. In addition, research suggests that ginseng may even be beneficial for your immune system, with one study suggesting that ginseng extract could enhance the effect of vaccinations against illnesses such as the flu. Of course, further research is needed to explore this more, but it seems that ginseng extract is a great way to support your wellbeing routine.

Vitamin D3

Most commonly known as the ‘sunshine vitamin,’ because our body produces it naturally when exposed to sunlight, vitamin D helps to support healthy bones and teeth, and contributes towards the maintenance of normal muscle function. In addition, it also helps to support the normal functioning of your immune system. With the lack of sunshine typically in the UK, our vitamin D3 Tablets come in handy. These soft capsules contain a high quantity of vitamin D3, a premium source of vitamin D. Simply take one capsule a day at your convenience.

One For All Multivitamins

Sometimes it can be tricky to get the right amounts of each vitamin, and you may not want to take a handful of different tablets every day. That’s where our One For All Multivitamins come in. A blend of 7 essential vitamins, our One For All tablets are perfect for supporting your everyday health and wellbeing goals. In addition to vitamins C and D, and essential B vitamins such as Riboflavin and Niacin, these multivitamins also contain vitamin A to support healthy vision and vitamin E, which contributes towards the protection of cells from oxidative distress

Immunity Bundle

For those who want to really want to kick things up a notch when it comes to supporting your health routine, our Immunity Bundle is for you. This includes our ever popular Vitamin C Plus tablets as well as our Vitamin D3 capsules, plus we’ve included the popular supplement Spirulina, which is known for being an organic source of protein and amino acids.

That’s just a handful of the great products you can pick up from our Immunity range. Be sure to check out the full range of vitamins, minerals and supplements here at Myvitamins.
