Vitamin subscription service offering free Vitamin D to frontline healthcare professionals
As events continue into unprecedented territory and the effects of COVID-19 are felt globally, personalised vitamin subscription service Vitl has launched Immunity vitamin tins to help support immune systems across the country.
Alongside this launch, the company is offering free vitamin D to healthcare workers in a bid to support the normal functioning of their own immune systems during such a pivotal time, as well as help reinforce their natural defences.
The Immunity tins, available online at vitl.com/product/immunity, provide a month’s supply of high-strength and fast-acting capsules, formulated using vitamins, minerals and plant extracts that have been selected specifically to support a healthy immune system, considering recent news.
Vitamin C, vitamin D and zinc, with added natural turmeric and elderberry extracts, can be found in each supplement, and have been carefully crafted by a plethora of health professionals. Each nutrient and its benefit can be seen below:
The vitamins have been created by a team of doctors and nutritionists and aim to give citizens the best chance of fighting off infections and illnesses.
Alongside supplements, Dr Monal Wadhera, Medical Director at Vitl, gave the following advice in boosting your immune system during these troubling times, especially in understanding the importance of rest: “Sleep can have a positive effect on your immune system and strengthens your body’s ability to respond to infections. Watch out for unhealthy lifestyle behaviours such as smoking and drinking excess alcohol as they can depress your immune system by suppressing the antibodies that fight colds and flus.”
Georgie Murphy, MSc Nutrition ANutr at Vitl provided her advice on better preparing your immune system: “It is not yet known what cures Coronavirus but by supplementing with the right nutrients, you can ensure your immune system is better prepared in case you come into contact with someone who has the illness.As well as taking vitamins, you should ensure you are leading a healthy lifestyle; drink lots of water, eat healthily, get lots of sleep, and exercise. Simple lifestyle changes can truly make all the difference.”
