Outdoor sports could help your immune system

Nutrition & Wellbeing

Get even more from your adventure with the built-in immunity support of XS™ Power Drink+

Mix up your day-to-day routine by hitting the trails for fresh air. If you’ve been staying at home a lot lately, going outside offers a refreshing change of view, whether you’re trail running along a scenic path or exploring a new bouldering rock.

Outdoor sports offer more than a welcome reprieve from the house. Studies show that going outside and regular physical activity can help maintain your immune system. With some extra help from the new great-tasting XS Power Drink+, here’s how to boost your overall performance.

Variety keeps life exciting

Life should be an adventure and there are so many activities that can give you an adrenaline rush. There’s the exhilaration of hiking up a rugged mountain and gazing down at the natural beauty that surrounds you. There’s the rush of rock climbing 20 metres up the face of a cliff, challenging your body in new ways.

There’s a whole exciting world out there for thrill-seekers like you. If you wonder why sports like kayaking and mountain biking put you in a good mood, the boost in endorphins might explain it. Sports can increase the production of serotonin in your body, the hormone that stabilises feelings of wellbeing and happiness.

Maintaining our body’s natural defenses

Being outdoors also has other wellness benefits. Sunlight helps your body make vitamin D, the “sunshine vitamin” that aids in supporting your immune system. Studies show that low levels of vitamin D can increase susceptibility to respiratory infections.

According to the German Federal Institute of Risk Assessment, “It is scientifically indisputable that a sufficient vitamin D supply contributes to the normal functioning of the immune system.” A number of other studies show that breathing phytoncides – the airborne chemicals that plants produce – increases white blood cells . White blood cells help us fight off infections.

New XS Power Drink+ helps keep you going

Of course, for an active lifestyle, it helps to have some fuel to power your body and provide additional support for your immune system. XS Power Drink+ is the first drink in the XS line that delivers the added bonus of regular immunity* support.

XS Power Drink+ has the same caffeine and vitamins B3, B5, B6 and B12 as all standard XS Power Drinks. These ingredients help fight fatigue, making it the ideal beverage for before and after your workout.

Upgrade to XS Power Drink+ for additional vitamin C and zinc, which contribute to the normal functioning of your immune system. This low-calorie, sugar-free drink is naturally flavoured with ginger passion fruit, and each great-tasting sip nurtures your body’s immune defences.
