Immunity Superfood Powder - 400G
READY, SET, DEFEND YOUR IMMUNITY
The immune system is critical for a healthy, well-functioning life. Modern living can wreak havoc with our immunity – stress, toxins, insufficient sleep, poor diet, adrenal fatigue and hormone disruptors are all common culprits. In addition, seasonal colds, viruses and the flu can also compromise our immunity. To help support and enhance immune defence we developed this specially formulated combination of powerhouse ingredients. Loaded with scientifically supported ingredients including Astragalus and Ashwagandha, which have been shown to support the immune system. Boosted with additional Vitamin C, rich Blackcurrant, Apple and Acerola Cherry, together with the active ingredients Zinc and Olive Leaf Extract, you can give your body the care it deserves. Understanding that we need to support and protect our immune system, we have created our all-natural IMMUNITY Superfood Powder to assist in both helping to support immunity and defend against symptoms of cold and flu. Supporting your immunity and staying healthy shouldn't be complicated. Two serves a day, when needed, of IMMUNITY Superfood Powder is a supercharged source of antioxidants, vitamins and minerals to help your body when it needs it most.
Not suitable for children under 15 years of age, or pregnant or breastfeeding women. Always read the label and follow the directions for use. Please check with your doctor before taking supplements, starting or stopping any medication, or if you have any general concerns.

The IMMUNITY Superfood Powder was designed with a blend of targeted immune-supporting ingredients. These are rich in antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, adaptogens, and probiotics that help strengthen overall immune function. When it comes to immune support, helping the body adapt to internal and external immune stressors (such as emotional stress or harmful pathogens) is important. Arming each cell with potent antiviral, antibacterial, and antioxidant properties is vital for immune health.
Vitamin C, zinc and immunity
Vitamin C is one of the most potent immune nutrients studied to date. When the immune system is under attack from harmful pathogens and bacteria, vitamin C levels fall significantly in important immune cells (due to stress predominantly) which is one of the reasons it is important to increase vitamin C intake at times of sickness. When supplemented, clinical studies have shown that vitamin C helps strengthen immune cell function and antimicrobial activity significantly. Similarly, zinc is another immune essential. Studies have shown that insufficient zinc levels are associated with impaired immune cell function, meaning your innate and adaptive immunity (the two main types) aren’t able to fight off viruses and pathogens to the best of their ability.
A large number of clinical trials that looked at the efficacy of zinc and vitamin C supplementation in immune health have shown that these two compounds help reduce cold and flu symptoms, and decrease the duration and severity of respiratory tract infections (including the common cold).

The gut contains the largest mass of lymphoid tissue (organised structures that support immune responses) in the body – housing 70% of your entire immune system. This tissue is known as gut-associated lymphoid tissue (GALT), and it holds the most important immune cells in the body such as B cells, T cells, lymphocytes, macrophages, and beyond. Ensuring that this large component of the immune system is functioning optimally relies on the diversity and strength of your gut – hence where probiotic supplementation comes in. When ingested, probiotics help diversify the bacteria in your gut and subsequently support a stronger immune system.

Pre-clinical and clinical studies on adaptogens (including Ashwagandha Root and Astragalus Root present in the IMMUNITY Superfood Powder) showcase their beneficial use in the prevention and treatment of viral infections. This is noted by a decrease in inflammation, increased detoxification processes, support against stress-induced oxidative damage to the infected cells, antiviral effects, and shortened recovery time.

- Blackcurrant – contains 4 x the amount of vitamin C than oranges.
- Astragalus Root – helps activate the response of your immune defence cells.
- Probiotic Blend – diversifies gut flora where 70% of the immune system exists.
- Zinc – mediates your immune response against viruses & bacteria.
- Olive Leaf Extract – enhances immune response against harmful pathogens.
How should I use it?
Add one scoop of IMMUNITY to ½ a cup of water or juice and shake or stir well. Enjoy once daily for general immune support, or twice daily at the first sign of common cold or flu symptoms.
Will this cure my cold or flu?
Our IMMUNITY Superfood Powder was designed to support your immune system using immune-specific, 100% natural ingredients. If you do have signs and symptoms of a cold or flu, we highly recommend taking this powder to best support your body with a healthy dose of vitamins and minerals. However, it is not a prescription medicine designed to cure or treat any specific health condition.
How is the IMMUNITY Powder different to the SUPERGREEN Powder? Isn’t SUPERGREEN also helpful for immunity?
Our SUPERGREEN Superfood Powder is designed for all-round energy and general wellbeing. It has over 40 ingredients specifically chosen to support the body in healthy general functioning.
Sometimes though the body needs more support, particularly when we are run down or fighting colds, flus and viruses. At these times, the body can benefit from specific ingredients that target immune support. And as such our IMMUNITY Superfood Powder was created with this in mind.
In addition, our SUPERGREEN Superfood Powder is suitable for children of all ages, as well as pregnant and breastfeeding women, whilst the IMMUNITY Superfood Powder isn’t due to the inclusion of zinc.
