People over the age of 60, as well as those with health problems, often have a weaker immune system than those that are healthy and under the age of 60. For this reason, we have developed an Immunity Bundle specifically for the age 60+ population to act as nutritional support for the immune system to best equip the body in its defence against foreign bodies.
You make a saving by purchasing these products as the Immunity Bundle 60+ rather than purchasing the products individually.
The Metabolics Immunity Bundle 60+ includes the following products:
Vitamin D3 and K2 2500 IU
Vitamin D plays an important role in supporting the inflammatory response to wounds and infection and supports the function of the immune system.
Obtained through sunlight, it can be more difficult to obtain enough vitamin D during the darker, winter months. Vitamin D is secured when the skin is exposed to UV-B radiation from the sun, which turns a specific cholesterol compound in the skin into vitamin D.
In addition to sunlight exposure, vitamin D can be secured through dietary sources, such as fatty fish, mushrooms and eggs, as well as food supplements that support your nutritional needs.
This Metabolics product includes vitamin K, as it works with vitamin D to maintain enough calcium in the body. vitamin D improves calcium absorption while vitamin K helps regulate the calcium in your body.
Elderberry Immune Support
This product contains three core ingredients and is formulated to help support the immune system. These three core ingredients are:
- Elderberry extract
It is the Sambucus tree, or Elder Tree, that produces the elderberry fruit. These particular berries contain flavonoids, which are plant-based phytochemicals, which possess antioxidant properties that are beneficial to the body. Elderberries are thought to protect against cell damage due to these antioxidant properties.
- Zinc Ascorbate
This is a combination of Zinc with Vitamin C (Ascorbic acid) that provides a highly bioavailable form of zinc. Zinc and zinc ascorbate plays a key role in supporting immune function.
- N Acetyl Cysteine
N Acetyl Cysteine, also known as NAC, is naturally found in onions. It is a plant-based antioxidant that contains the amino acid L-Cysteine, which is the precursor to the antioxidant glutathione. Antioxidants are believed to play an important role in fighting cell damage caused by free radicals.
Selenium is an essential trace mineral found in brazil nuts and contributes to the normal function of the immune system. Cell signalling molecules called cytokines, which are in charge of the immune response, are regulated by selenium.
Selenium is important for a healthy immune system as a deficiency in this mineral is associated with impaired immune function.
Ionic Zinc X/S
Zinc is a vital mineral that acts as an antioxidant, protecting the body's cell from oxidative damage and supporting the immune system, keeping it working and healthy. Ionic Zinc delivers zinc in a form that makes it easily digested and absorbed by the intestine.
This combination of products is designed to support your immune system, specifically in people over the age of 60 who may be more likely to have a weakened immune response.
"I just started taking the supplements but from the description I know that all ingredients are very good because I am familiar with some of them."
