What Are The Immune Supports Key Ingredients? And Why Do We Use Them?
Our experts have used a combination of some of the best ingredients to help boost your immune system.
One of the key ingredients in our immune support supplements is Vitamin C. Vitamin C plays several important roles within your body. If you have a healthy and balanced diet you should receive enough vitamin c through the food you eat. The average adult (19-64) in the UK needs around 40mg of vitamin C a day.
The next key ingredient is zinc. Our bodies do not naturally produce zinc therefore you must obtain it through your diet or supplements. Zinc is vital for the development and function of immune cells. It also plays role in the maintenance of normal vision, skin, hair and nails. On average a UK adult (19-64) male needs 9.5mg of zinc while a woman only needs 7mg.
Vitamin D plays several crucial roles within the body. It is a nutrient needed to keep bones, teeth, muscles health. During the winter months, our bodies are not able to make all the vitamin D they need from sunlight alone. This means that during these months we should use supplements. The average person in the UK needs 10 μg of vitamin D per day.
The last key ingredient is selenium. Selenium helps our immune system work properly as well as prevent damage to cells and tissue. On average a UK adult (19-64) needs 60μg to 75μg per day.
