What is BodyShield Immunity Plus?
Looking after your immune health is especially important after intense physical exercise such as endurance sports, as this sort of activity can make you more vulnerable to everyday ills. This vegan supplement, developed with leading sports nutritionists, is an advanced immune health complex with Wellmune® Beta Glucan, Co-enzyme Q10 and French maritime pine bark extract, along with vitamins C and E, four B vitamins, folic acid and zinc to help support your immune system after intense physical exercise.
Beta glucans were discovered in the mid-20th century and decades later research began focusing on their potential for boosting immune health. The patented ingredient Wellmune® is a highly purified beta glucan, naturally derived from the cell walls of baker’s yeast. This type of beta glucan has a very specific chemical structure, known as 1.3/1.6. And although the EU hasn’t yet approved health claims on Wellmune beta glucan, several clinical studies show its ability to recognise and fend off viral and bacterial infections and its immune system strengthening properties.
Co-enzyme Q10 is a substance dubbed ‘nature’s spark plug’ by some researchers, who believe that it may be important for energy. And research on French maritime pine bark extract, a nutrient popular with athletes, suggests it may have anti-inflammatory properties and help you stave off infections. Though it’s important to point out that the EU hasn’t approved health claims for any of these ingredients as yet.
Why is ours better?
We’ve also added specific nutrients to support those taking part in high intensity physical activities. Vitamin C keeps your immune system working during and after intense exercise, while vitamin E, four B vitamins, folic acid and the mineral zinc support immune health, protect your cells from oxidative stress, maintain energy levels and reduce tiredness and fatigue.
Who is this for?
High intensity physical activities, such as marathons and triathlons, put your body under stress and can make your immune system vulnerable to illness. Our BodyShield Immunity Plus vegan capsules are for anyone who leads an active lifestyle and wants to support their bodies’ natural immune defence to don’t let illness slowing them down.
