Immune Phix Nutrients

 

Vitamin B12

Immune Phix European Food Safety Authority health claims:

  • Vitamin B12 contributes to the normal function of the immune system
  • Vitamin B12 contributes to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue
  • Vitamin B12 contributes to normal energy-yielding metabolism

 

Vitamin B12 roles

  • energy production
  • production of antibodies (a type of protein used by the immune system to attack bacteria and viruses)
  • anti-viral effects

 

The body stores vitamin B12 in the liver. However, low vitamin B12 levels are common in all age groups and due to a combination of:

  • inadequate diet;
  • medications;
  • difficulties with absorption.

 

Vitamin B12 in Immune Phix

  • A single serving of Immune Phix contain 2.5 micrograms (μg) of vitamin B12, the same amount as 250g (90z) of sirloin beef!
  • Our vitamin B12 in Immune Phix is derived from dried Irish mushroom.

 

 

Immune Phix natural vitamin C complex

Immune Phix European Food Safety Authority health claims:

  • Vitamin C contributes to the normal function of the immune system
  • Vitamin C contributes to maintain the normal function of the immune system during and after intense physical exercise
  • Vitamin C contributes to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue
  • Vitamin C contributes to normal energy-yielding metabolism
  • Vitamin C contributes to the protection of cells from oxidative stress
  • Vitamin C contributes to the regeneration of the reduced form of vitamin E

 

Vitamin C roles

  • Can decrease infection risk by up to 50% in those who are physically active;
  • Can reduce the duration of infection;
  • Can increase the number of antioxidant enzymes in the blood;
  • Can be found in the fluid lining the nose and the lung; but only when large amounts of foods rich in vitamin C are consumed regularly.

 

Vitamin C appears to be most stable in food, hence we use natural vitamin C. Further, vitamin C from natural sources comes with additional phytonutrients such as carotenoids, flavonoids and polyphenols.

 

  • The body does not store significant amounts of vitamin C.
  • For optimal immune health, large amounts of vitamin C should be consumed daily.

 

Vitamin C in Immune Phix

  • A single serving of Immune Phix contain 255 milligrams (mg) of natural vitamin C, the same amount as 13 tangerine oranges!
  • Our vitamin C is derived from elderberry, acerola cherry, Indian gooseberry and strawberry.

 

Vitamin D

Immune Phix European Food Safety Authority health claims:

  • Vitamin D contributes to the normal function of the immune system
  • Vitamin D contributes to the normal function of the immune system in children

 

Vitamin D roles

  • Increases calcium absorption;
  • Needed for bone growth and remodelling;
  • immune system, the lung, the airway and the nose;
  • Reduction of inflammation.

 

Vitamin D is fat soluble and the body can maintain a store of vitamin D. But the major source of vitamin D is sunshine, not diet and over 1 billion people are estimated to be vitamin D deficient.

 

Vitamin D in Immune Phix

  • The second most prevalent electrolyte in the human body;
  • Involved in vitamin D metabolism;
  • Can improve energy levels;
  • Can improve sleep quality;
  • Can improve mood;
  • Can decrease inflammation.

 

Low intake magnesium is common due to inadequate diet.
