Your 3 Immune superstars!

Embrace the winter season with confidence, for Health 2000 is here to offer you the best products that will help you take care of yourself. If you’re unsure about the best ways to protect your immune system, Health2000 knows how!

Your 3 immune superstars: Elderberry, Vitamin C & Zinc

Elderberry 
Generations have used black elderberry as the go-to ingredient when feeling unwell. Scientific research has tracked its effectiveness down to high levels of anthocyanins, which trigger a strong immune response when immune cells are under attack. While anthocyanins can be found in various berries and tropical fruits, they  are found in particularly high levels in black elderberries.  It also helps that elderberries are a rich source of flavonoids which are great for their antioxidant activity.

Vitamin C
When your immune system is stressed or under attack, your body will hoover up Vitamin C like nothing else. Experts recommend around 2000 mgs per day when you’re not feeling 100%, which is a hefty amount to  source from diet alone. Studies show that having a good amount of vitamin C on board supports the duration of the winter season.

Zinc
Our last must-have for immune support over winter is zinc. Zinc is an essential mineral that is used in the development and function of healthy immune cells. It
also helps support the immune response for the duration and severity of symptoms. Harker Herbals Elderberry + Vitamin C + Zinc combines all three in a high-strength formula that’s delicious straight from the spoon or mixed into your favourite drink. Formulated for all ages – adjust the dosage so one bottle can serve the whole family. Try using it in gummies, in your drink bottle, or even over yogurt for a healthy topping.

Elderberry winter drink

• 10mls of Elderberry
• 1/2 to a full pinch of Mixed
Spice (depending how spicy you like it)
• 250mls of warm water
