At Nourished we believe that prevention is better than cure, and that the key to good health is a strong immune system. Feeding your body with all the nourishment it needs through food and supplements is how you can beat the bug and keep your immune system fighting fit.
So what is your immune system, and what does it do?
Our immune systems are our bodies natural defence against infection and illness. It recognises any abnormalities such as germs, bacteria, viruses and parasites and destroys them. Your health and happiness are both so important to us at Nourished, and we can help you keep your immune system strong with our delicious nutrition-packed gummy stacks.
Our immunity-boosting hero’s
We work with some pretty impressive, high impact ingredients here at Nourished, and with our nutrient density significantly higher than standard isolated tablets, our stacks have maximum bioavailability and high absorption for better impact to boost your immunity faster.
1. Beta Glucan.
While not widely known, Beta Glucan can increase the immune system of those who have a weakened system thanks to issues such as chronic fatigue syndrome. Beta Glucan is also widely found in medicines taken for colds, flu, respiratory tract infections, and other illnesses.
Beta Glucan is often used to optimise gut health, which is often linked very closely to the immune system. For instance, we know that a healthy gut flora mix improves the production of antibodies used to fight disease.

2. Lactospore Pro-biotics.
“All diseases begin in the gut.” – Hippocrates, 460-370 B.C. Covering all areas of immunity boosting, we believe pro-biotics and overall good gut health are a contributing factor to keep you on track. Studies show how Lactospore Pro-biotics can be used to boost immunity, click here to read more.
Pro-biotics are live microorganisms that research has shown to help your immune system and inhibit the growth of harmful gut bacteria, whilst boosting the immune cells in your body. Occurring in various foods such as yogurt and sauerkraut, pro-biotics are a great way to naturally boost your immunity.
3. Vitamin C.
Perhaps one of the most well-known vitamins out there is Vitamin C. We take a deeper delve into Vitamin C here. It’s immune-boosting, antioxidant and wound healing properties have been celebrated for generations. It’s thorough immune-system boosting capacities have led Vitamin C to become pivotal in the fight against various colds and flu.
This is why Vitamin C is often recommended as part of a supplementary stack, as the exposure to airborne viruses or exposure to the cold bug requires a robust and healthy immune system to fight off.
Other natural ways to boost your immunity
At Nourished we believe in getting the right amount of nutrients your body needs is priority for a thriving immune system. Here are another couple of ways you can boost your immune system naturally…
Get the right amount of sleep.
It’s no secret that a good night’s sleep can see you jumping out of bed in the morning. What’s more, researchers say getting a night of good sleep can strengthen your immune system. Giving your body and mind chance to rest and your inner defence to fight off any attacks is vital to keeping on top of your immunity.
A lack of sleep also makes you vulnerable to viruses and bacteria meaning you might be more prone to catch a cold or flu when you are deprived of sleep.
Try to take it easy.
Stress can dramatically lower the functionality of your immune system by raising the cortisol in your blood. Although cortisol is all part of your body’s natural defences, raised cortisol levels actually diverts energy to physiological responses such as increased alertness and reactions.
We know that sometimes it’s easier said than done, so giving yourself a helping hand through nourishment and pursuing things that you find really relax you are important.
There are also several additional ingredients we have at Nourished that you can add to your stack to manage your stress levels and create your own perfect combination of nutrition.
Get back to nature.
Immersing yourself to the great outdoors has been proven to boost your immune system's abilities, making it easier to fight off invading bacteria and attacks. Making a regular conscious effort to get back to nature can really help to boost our immune system.
While we breathe in the fresh air we breathe in phytoncides, airborne chemicals that plants give off to protect themselves from insects, which helps to strengthen our immune system.
