Cold weather can sometimes get the better of us and it's vital to keep our immune systems in good shape by doing what you can to maintain your bodies natural defences. Apart from diet and exercise being the obvious things, the nutrients we get through our food are extremely important when helping the body fight anything from infections to colds and flus.
Let's be realistic.. It's not always possible to get your five a day as many of us lead busy lives whether it's through work or looking after family, so we've picked two of our most popular supplements that are great at helping to keep you topped up.
Berocca has been heavily advertised and is an extremely popular product that we stock. It comes in an Orange or Tropical flavour and if you're really in need of a 'pick-me-up', there's a variety we stock called 'Berocca Boost' which contains Guarana, a natural herbal stimulant.
The other one we want to mention this month is Bio-Glucan which contains Yestimun® beta glucans with a high purity of 85%. Supplementation with Bio-Glucan Plus helps to maintain a healthy immune system.
The type of glucan used in Bio-Glucan Plus should not be confused with the type of glucans obtained from cereals such as oats and wheat. They are beta 1,3/1,4 glucans, which have a different molecular structure and different actions within the body.
It's not just these supplements that we stock, but a wide variety of other individual vitamnins and minerals so if you need any help whatsoever, simply ask one of our friendly staff for some advice.
