The Best Defence Against a Cold & Flu

The Best Defence Against a Cold & Flu

Building a strong immune system is the best defence against the cold and flu this season. No-one enjoys suffering with a sore throat, cough or runny nose, and when your body is showing symptoms- it's often already too late. Organic Baobab is bursting with vitamin C, zinc and antioxidants, and is a powerful way to boost your immune system naturally, and avoid getting sick entirely.

Unlike most animals, the human body is not able to produce its own vitamin C and so we need to get it through our diet. Taking one serving of Organic Baobab daily is an easy and quick way to ensure that you meet your body’s vitamin C requirement. It contains over 6x more vitamin C than oranges and a single serving provides 33% of our daily recommended intake. As baobab is also 100% natural, the vitamin C it contains is considered bioavailable- meaning that it is much more easily digested and absorbed into the body than manufactured factory tablets. 

Dr Heather Monday, a board-certified allergist, immunologist and functional medicine physician, recently published an article saying that, “vitamin C has been found in studies to lower the severity and duration of a cold, and in early studies may lessen the severity of hospitalized Covid patients’ symptoms.”

Dr Thomas Levy, a U.S. cardiologist and vitamin C expert also recently told Vogue, “A strong immune system is really the only significant protection for an individual [from coronavirus]. And a great deal of immune system strength comes from the vitamin C content in the immune cells. When the levels of vitamin C in the body are low, the immune system can never function at full capacity.”

Did you know that our digestive system also plays a critical role in our immune system? In fact, 70-80% of immune cells are present in the gut, and so healthy tummies mean a stronger immune system.  Our Organic Baobab powder is impressively comprised of 50% natural fiber, which acts as a prebiotic. Prebiotic foods promote the healthy growth of friendly bacteria in the gut and can improve the overall health of the digestive system. Recent studies have revealed that over 40% of the population suffer from at least one digestive issue-and so if you are one of these people, a single serving of prebiotic fiber present in baobab a day could really help relieve your symptoms.

Zinc is an essential trace element also required for the immune system to be able to function properly. It aids in fighting viruses, protects us from free radical damage to our cells, and has been shown to shorten the duration of a cold. Baobab is an excellent source of zinc, making it the ultimate immunity booster!

Our Organic Baobab Powder not only tastes like a delicious tangy pear, but it’s extremely healthy and supercharged food source that will support your immune system, and defend your body against getting sick. Just add 1-2 scoops into a glass of water each morning, or add it into your smoothies, sprinkle it over yoghurt, or bake it into some goodies. For an extra immunity boost, try adding it into a  mug of hot water along with raw ginger, fresh lemon and honey. These ingredients have antibacterial properties that have also been shown to reduce the duration of a cold and can provide some relief from a sore throat. 

There's never been a more important time to make your health and immune system your No.1 priority, so why not start today?
