Why take a Multi during cold and flu season?
Vitamins and minerals are essential nutrients that the human body needs on a daily basis, but that it cannot make on its own. Together they are required for normal healthy metabolism, growth, energy and to ensure healthy immunity. A perfect diet can provide all the vitamins and minerals the body needs, but unfortunately few people eat the right balance. During cold and flu season the need for supplementation becomes more apparent as your body needs more nutrients to supply adequate energy, to power the immune system and to protect the respiratory tract from infection.
Nutra-Life Winter Multi provides nutritional insurance against winter infections while boosting energy and natural immunity through herbal medicine.
What is the importance of Olive Leaf and Astragalus in this formula?
Olive leaves have been traditionally used for their antiseptic and fever-reducing properties. They contain beneficial flavonoids with antioxidant properties, and are a rich source of oleuropein, which supports the body’s natural immune system. Oleuropein has been extensively researched for its antimicrobial activity and its ability to help the body to deal with upper respiratory tract infections.
Nutra-Life Winter Multi One-a-day provides a standardised Olive Leaf extract that provides 24mg of Oleuropein per capsule. Astragalus is a herb used in Traditional Chinese Medicine for its immune enhancing and immune regulating actions. It is know for its adaptogenic action as it supports the body in recovery from stress.
