Take time for your immune system

Vitamins and Supplements

Hydration and nutrition play an important role in your active lifestyle.

Let’s be honest: during your full, active schedule, do you forget to slow down and grab a glass of water? Or load up on nutritional food both before and after your demanding workout? After a long, exhausting day of activities, trying to meet your daily fruit and vegetable count or water intake can be difficult to achieve.

But the pesky facts speak for themselves. About 75% of people around the world do not eat the minimum daily recommended servings of fruit and vegetables, leaving a nutrient gap.* The World Health Organization (WHO) recommends five servings (about 400 g) of fruit and vegetables a day.**

In addition, your daily fluid intake should equal about 8 to 10 glasses, but how much water you actually need to drink to keep your body functioning at an optimal level is influenced by your weight, height and living circumstances.

One particularly alarming consequence of poor nutrition and hydration is the possible impact this can have on your immune system. Short-term consequences can include headaches, lethargy and loss of concentration. That said, how possible is it to combine an active lifestyle while keeping your overall wellbeing in top condition?

The support of supplements

One way is supplementation. Ideally, you should be able to get your daily intake of nutrients through food, but it’s not always possible. NUTRILITE™ offers a variety of dietary supplements that can help cover nutritional gaps.

Support your immune system with additional supplements. With NUTRILITE, you have access to a wide and varied range of products with recommended nutrients that can be combined with water to boost both hydration and your daily nutritional intake – all without cramping your style.

Fill in the gaps of vitamin C of your daily diet with NUTRILITE Vitamin C. Vitamin C contributes to normal collagen formation for the skin. It also contributes to the protection of cells from oxidative stress. Vitamin C can help boost your antioxidant levels, contribute to building up your body’s natural resistance and help give your immune system that much more protection.

For all-around contribution to your wellbeing, the NUTRILITE Chewable Vitamin helps provide the essential vitamins and minerals at levels that both children and adults may need. It includes vitamin C, iron and zinc, which contribute to a normal function of the immune system.
