Immunity-Boosting Supplements By Wellbeing Nutrition To Help You Stay Healthy In WintersWellbeing Nutrition compresses a wide range of potent fruits, vegetables and natural ingredients with zero preservatives and artificial colours in all its products. That's what sets it apart from the rest in the market. If there’s one thing that we have realised in the past two years, thanks to the pandemic, is the necessity to have a strong and robust immune system. Not only should we consume foods that are fresh and nutrition-rich, we should also support our diet with organic, effective, and immunity-boosting dietary supplements to help us stay healthy always. In this blog, we have curated a list of immunity-boosting supplements by Wellbeing Nutrition that will ensure you stay in the best of health during the winter season.
Grandma’s KadhaWe have all grown up having Ayurvedic kadha at home every time we have fallen sick, especially during winters. After all, cold temperatures bring with it all kinds of respiratory ailments. It has been our go-to remedy for cold, cough and flu symptoms. However, the process of making kadha can be quite cumbersome as one has to be absolutely sure of the proportion of spices and ingredients used. Overcooking it can alter the taste and make the drink more pungent, which can potentially harm the gut. But don’t worry as Wellbeing Nutrition has the perfect and easy-to-make-Kadha for you.
Grandma's Kadha, as the product is popularly known, is a concentrated, hot water soluble herbal preparation made of 13 carefully selected adaptogenic herbs that have been extensively used to fight common cold, cough, congestion, flu and infections. This is an effective remedy to boost the body’s immunity, whilst reducing the risk of infections and flu.
Melts Throat ReliefAn amazing supplement from Wellbeing Nutrition, Melts Throat Relief comes in the form of oral thin strips that have a tasty flavour and are easy to consume, particularly when compared to traditional tablets and capsules. This is an incredibly effective and helpful supplement when it comes to treating and preventing cold, cough, and sore throats, which occur every time the temperatures fall. They are in the form of melt-in-the-mouth good oral thin strips that instantly dissolve on coming in contact with the tongue. Their benefits include clearing nasal airways, soothing the throat, preventing all kinds of respiratory infections, and providing relief from throat aches.
Vitamin C + ZincWinter brings with it frequent bouts of cold, cough and flu. While there’s not enough research that can ascertain vitamin C and zinc’s efficacy in preventing cold entirely, it is safe to say that they can bring down its severity. That is why taking vitamin C + zinc supplements during winter helps. Give Wellbeing Nutrition’s Organic Vitamin C+ Zinc a try, which will surely gear up your immune system. This supplement is 100 % organic, with vitamin C extracted from nature’s purest ingredients like elderberry, amla (Indian gooseberry), acerola cherry, and rosehip. This is a highly effective product and is known to boost the immune system and improve the body’s response to infections and diseases.
Melts Vitamin D3Vitamin D is an essential nutrient that the body requires from time to time. It is called the ‘sunshine vitamin’ because the body produces it when sunlight hits the skin. During winter, the necessity to keep vitamin D levels at an optimum level is even more important as one tends to spend less time outdoors and is at a greater risk of falling sick. Vitamin D also aids the body in absorbing calcium – a vital ingredient known to keep bones strong. Lack of this essential nutrient can lead to brittle bones, osteoarthritis, and osteomalacia, the symptoms of which aggravate during winters.
You can try Wellbeing Nutrition’s Natural Vitamin D3 Melts, which are available in the form of oral thin strips that contain all natural ingredients like astaxanthin- an antioxidant that is 20 times more potent in eliminating free radicals in the body. It also contains vitamin D3, made from plant based lichen, natural vitamin K2 (obtained from fermented chickpeas), and cold pressed coconut oil. Just place a strip in your mouth and it will instantly dissolve, leading to better absorption and efficacy.
Melts MultivitaminsMelts Multivitamins is a reliable supplement from Wellbeing Nutrition. If your diet is nutrient deficient then you must include multivitamins as a part of your daily routine. Multivitamins aid in filling any potential nutritional gaps, genetic predispositions, or any of the nutrients that your body is unable to absorb properly if you have an underlying gut issue. Whatever be the case, it’s vital that you consume multivitamins regularly. During winter months, you should make it a point to have them as they help boost immunity, or reduce the severity of it. At the same time, multivitamins also help to protect your gut bacteria from the severe effects of antibiotics. While selecting which brand of multivitamins to take, choose Wellbeing Nutrition’s Melts Multivitamins. These oral strips contain essential nutrients like vitamin A, B-complex, C, D3, K2, ashwagandha, magnesium, and ginseng, which are good enough to boost your physical as well as mental health.
Melts Nano IronLack of sufficient iron levels in the body lead to anemia. To top it all, the body isn’t able to produce enough of a substance in red blood cells that is responsible to carry oxygen to different parts of the body if there isn’t enough iron in the body. Consequently, iron deficiency anemia (IDA) can lead to a constant state of tiredness and shortness of breath. During winters, symptoms of IDA tend to worsen. Furthermore, low iron levels in the body make you feel cold even more. That is because of the poor blood circulation owing to the lack of sufficient red blood cells in the body.Try out Nano Iron Melts that contain iron extracted from a microencapsulated salt, and other natural ingredients like organic beetroot, spinach, Swiss chard, organic pumpkin seeds, acerola cherry and folic acid. In delicious exotic elderberry flavour, these oral thin strips help to elevate iron levels in the body at a quicker rate.
ACV and Fortified ACV (Amla, Cinnamon, Turmeric and Black Pepper)Apple cider vinegar (ACV) contains acetic acid and something known as ‘Mother’, which is the combination of yeast and bacteria formed during fermentation. This ‘mother’ lends ACV the antimicrobial and antibacterial properties that kill pathogens and keep all kinds of infections and diseases at bay, including respiratory ones. Wellbeing Nutrition’s ACV is organic, unfiltered, raw and contains twice the amount of ‘mother’ than any regular ACV. We also have a fortified ACV, called ACV Plus, which contains the goodness of cinnamon, turmeric, blackpepper and amla- all of which are spices, known to give the immune system a boost. The spices further elevate the antimicrobial properties that are already existent in ACV, making the fortified version an even more potent version of the same. Diluted apple cider vinegar in warm water makes for the perfect detox drink during winters that also helps keep the gut healthy.
Daily GreensIf your diet lacks green leafy vegetables, which are a storehouse of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, then Daily Greens is the perfect multivitamin supplement for you. Containing an organic blend of over 15 essential and alkalising real green superfoods and over 30 antioxidant-rich superfoods, which help protect your body from damaging effects of free radicals, Daily Greens is the perfect supplement for your immune system, irrespective of the season. Apart from this, this supplement also helps balance the pH levels in the body, stimulate digestive enzymes, and deliver complete wholefood nutrition- all of which helps to keep your body and mind healthy at all times.
Probiotics + PrebioticsWinters can be really tough on the gut. Colder temperatures cause the appetite to grow and metabolism to slow down, leading to weight gain and an imbalance in the gut bacteria. The festive season is also a great time to indulge in some tasty delicacies, which can take a toll on your gut health. One’s gut bacteria further influences one’s immune system. Any imbalance in the gut bacteria makes one more susceptible to ailments and infections. That’s why it is important to include a probiotic supplement to your regular diet. Choose a plant-based probiotic such as Wellbeing Nutrition’s Probiotics + Prebiotics to solve all your gut-related problems. Containing 36 billion (CFU) active live cultures per serving, this organic probiotic supplement will help improve gut microbiome and keep your digestive health at its peak this winter.
Winters can be difficult on the immune system and your overall well being, especially if you don’t take care of yourself. That’s why this winter, ensure you follow a healthy and balanced diet, catch up on your sleep, exercise regularly and always keep the aforementioned Wellbeing Nutrition supplements handy to ensure optimum health.
