Trinny & Shabir on Immunity

Currently there is a lot of confusion as to how we can all keep our immune system healthy and primed.  But what exactly is our immune system?

The immune system, unlike any other bodily system, comprises of a complex series of interactions between various glands, such as the thymus gland and tonsils, proteins, chemical compounds, hormones, white blood cells and probiotics that all work in synergy to try and make our bodies less susceptible to infections. Many of these chemical compounds require nutrients in order to work effectively, for example a deficiency in vitamin D3 may result in dormancy of white blood cells which are normally required to engulf and eradicate bacteria and viruses that enter the bloodstream.

What are Liposomal Vitamins?

Over the last few months, liposomal vitamins have been hailed as the best supplements to deliver vitamins to the body. It is important to understand what liposomal encapsulation technology (LET) entails in order to understand why these supplements may be very effective within the body.

Essentially, Liposomal Encapsulation Technology consists of microscopic healthy fat particles called phospholipids along with vitamins. This technology has been used for many years to deliver certain drugs to specific tissues within the body without affecting the other parts of the body. Read More…

Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, is a vital water soluble vitamin, which the human body cannot manufacture and yet every single cell and tissue within our body requires this nutrient for healthy function and repair. We therefore have to ingest vitamin C through the foods that we consume including vegetables and fruits and by way of supplements. Most of us reach for this vitamin when we have colds or flu however its actions are very widespread.

Maintaining optimal levels of vitamin C is difficult since it is water soluble and hence is excreted out of the body within a very short space of time after ingesting it through food or by way of supplements. Some vitamin C is retained in our body within organs and blood. However, based on current research we simply do not have sufficient vitamin C intake in the first instance, which exposes us to illness. This inability to maintain optimal levels is recognised by scientists all over the world as a limiting factor to its potential benefit in protecting us from chronic health concerns. For years scientists have been looking at ways to boost the impact of vitamin C because of the benefits it provides to our bodies. Read More…
