Your immune system is responsible for keeping your body free from harmful bacteria, diseases and viruses. When you feel ill, it means that your immune system is struggling to combat a pathogen that has entered your body. Keeping your immune system strong and healthy is key to fighting off colds, flu and a multitude of other unwanted problems. If you suffer from frequent colds or other illnesses, or if age is weakening your immune system, then immune supplements might be the perfect solution for you.

Our immune supplements work with your body. Your immune system is, as the name suggests, a system not a single thing. That means it’s intimately connected to a massive range of different functions in your body. You’ll see that our products crossover between immune health, digestive health, antioxidants and other categories. This is because any vitamin supplement, antioxidant or probiotic tablet has a host of benefits to your body. Immune health is mixed into it all. If you have a low immune system, your body can’t function at its best. Energy is spent on fighting illness, so you have less for enjoying life!

Immune Support

On the whole, our bodies are fantastic at maintaining a healthy immune system, but there are times in which they need a boost and extra support in order for to stay healthy. There are many factors that can impact your immune system including:

  • Diet
  • Exercise
  • Age
  • Stress
  • Smoking
  • Tiredness

 

Immune supplements are intended to support your body as you tackle issues such as these. We always recommend using our vitamin capsules, antioxidants or other immune support alongside getting enough sleep and a balanced diet. We have a host of different products that can tackle whatever causes you to feel low and run down.

Many people have a low immune system due to immunodeficiency diseases. These come in many forms. If you suffer from an immunodeficiency disease, always contact your doctor about how best to support your body.

Vitamins for Immune Health

Vitamins are one of the important factors that contribute to good overall immune health. Usually, we gain vitamins from our diet and our environment, but it can be hard to ensure we are getting the right amount of the right things. Every person’s body works in a slightly different way. This means that some people are better than others at gaining and processing the vitamins we need to support our immune systems.

Vitamin D

Vitamin D is largely absorbed from sunlight. It means that if you live in a country with little sunshine, or don’t spend much time outside, you can easily become vitamin D deficient. As well as giving immune support, it also helps keep your bones strong.

Vitamin B

We stock two kinds of vitamin B tablets: vitamin B12 and vitamin B complex. Vitamin B12 is essential for cell growth and replication, among other functions. If your cells can’t do this, then your immune system can’t replenish itself and keep itself healthy. It isn’t found in vegetables, which means vegans and vegetarians are especially at risk of vitamin B12 deficiency. Our capsules are perfect as they are suitable for vegans and vegetarians!

Vitamin B complex contains eight variations of vitamin B, including B12. These vitamins are vital to turn your food into energy. Without energy, your immune system wouldn’t be able to run at all. Vitamin B can’t be stored in your body, which means you need a daily supply from your diet or from supplements.

Antioxidants

Antioxidants are often associated with the prevention of wrinkles. They do help to keep your skin looking young, but they also promote immune health. ‘Free radicals’ cause damage to your cells and have a host of effects. As you get older, the number of free radicals in your system increases. Antioxidants, however, perform a chemical change with free radicals, rendering them harmless. This means they prevent free radicals from damaging your cells in every system in your body. Antioxidants not only aid your skin’s health, but your immune system too.

We have a host of antioxidant capsules, including coenzyme Q10, acai berry and astaxanthin.

If you’re looking for an immune boost to tackle frequent illnesses, or simply to keep your immune system running effectively, then explore our range of immune supplements.
