Natural immune boosters

Reading time: 5 minutes

As we enter into the colder  months of the year, it’s a time for boosting immunity and focusing on well-being and self-care. Janey Lee Grace offers this month’s pick of natural, sustainable products founded by experts and doctors to take care of the environment as well as our health.

Take the shot!

The Turmeric Co., Original Raw Turmeric, £31.50 (14 shots)

theturmeric.co

Many of us love a health shot on the go, but we want one that packs a punch.

Sometimes it takes an athlete to create a great product, as they know exactly what’s needed! Founded by international footballer Thomas Robson-Kanu, The Turmeric Co. offers health shots that have been developed over 15 years and are endorsed by leading nutritionists.

There’s a whole range, and each boasts the strongest measure available (3.5 g of raw turmeric and piperine extract). The latter, the bioactive compound found in black pepper, improves the absorption of curcumin by up to 2,000 percent

 

Spritz the air with essential oils

Puressentiel, Purifying Air Spray, £19.99 (200 mL)

uk.puressentiel.com

This purifying air spray contains a blend of over 40 pure essential oils (lavender, geranium, eucalyptus and lemon, to name a few), so it smells great and it can improve indoor air quality. Doctors in France, where it was developed, recommend it to combat airborne viruses and bacteria, fungal spores and dust mites. You can spritz it around the room or spray it directly onto carpets and bedding.

 

Go where tech meets beauty

Réduit, Réduit Boost, $199/£179

reduit.com

If your budget or schedule doesn’t stretch to a state-of-the-art spa for facials and treatments, check out this innovative personalized skincare device from Swiss beauty tech brand Réduit. It works by boosting the efficacy of your skin cream, pushing it deeper into the skin where it’s needed.

You input your skin type and some other personal info into the app and scan your skincare products to sync the device to your skin’s needs. It chooses the best waveform foryour product’s active ingredient and matches it with a selected LED light. The result, they claim, is much better absorption of the cream while you enjoy a relaxing facial massage from the device. The Boost device easily fits the palm of the hand and is light and handy for travel.

 

Up the antioxidants

Clive de Carle, Immuno, $60.42/£50 (3.2 oz / 90 g)

clivedecarle.com

A diet rich in antioxidants is believed to be one of the keys to a long, healthy life. With this in mind, leading health educator Clive de Carle’s Immuno, created to increase immunity, energy and resistance to disease, provides a combination of some of the most powerful antioxidants known.

Antioxidants protect against the free radical damage caused by environmental stressors. Neutralizing these harmful compounds has a dramatic effect on overall health and energy levels, as well as promoting healthy hair, skin and nails. Just a teaspoon of this powerful powder is enough to make a big difference.

 

As winter draws near, look after your lips with a natural balm

LipQ, LipQ Liquorice Balm, $13.30/£9.50 (1 oz / 30 g)

skinshop.co.uk

It’s thought that cold sores affect almost 30 million people in the UK alone, but conventional lip balms can even exacerbate the problem. LipQ Liquorice Balm tastes of—you guessed it—licorice as it contains highly concentrated amounts to help protect your lips from cold sores, and it’s made from naturally derived ingredients besides.

 

Extend your sustainability to your jewelry 

More Than Swim, Sustainably Sourced Sterling Silver Double Starfish Pendant Necklace, $47.54/£39.25

morethanswim.com

Make sure your eco credentials stretch to your clothing and jewelry, as it’s so easy to overlook sustainable practices when shopping for accessories. Check out this lovely, delicate double starfish necklace. The eco chain and lightweight charm are produced by manufacturers who use a sustainable and ecological bullion source and are made with a mix of recycled and ethically sourced silver.

The necklace arrives in a recycled aqua-blue box, and a donation from each sale goes to the charity Ocean Generation, which aims to reduce the use of single-use plastics and the damage to oceans and wildlife.

 

If you prefer a berry boost…

Haskapa, Organic Berry Powder, $23/£18 (3.5 oz / 100 g)

haskapa.com

Boost your immunity this autumn with the power of berries in powder form. You can add Haskapa Organic Berry Powder to smoothies and yogurts or mix it into porridge oats or even a latte.

Dr Evie Kemp’s berry powder is high in vitamin C and incredibly has four times the anthocyanins and three times the antioxidants of blueberries. No wonder a study from the University of Northumbria found it improved the performance of endurance runners by 2 percent.

 

Pick out some self-care inspiration

Unleash Your S.E.X.Y. Cards, $21.17/£17.50 (52-card deck)

unleashyoursexy.co.uk

When life feels stressful, how about giving yourself a little encouragement by picking out an inspirational card with a simple but elegant design and an uplifting statement? Women in particular sometimes just need a reminder to use their feminine energy to nourish happiness and positivity.

The brand founder Mudrika de Mar is an entrepreneur who has experienced burnout and now wants to encourage us to tap into self-love and joy daily, however busy our schedule is.

The 52 Unleash Your S.E.X.Y. cards are a bit larger than standard playing cards and are printed on top-quality 350-gsm card stock.
