Nutrient packed with vitamin C, vitamin E and acai berry, it’s the ultimate supplement for strengthening your immunity, promoting digestion all while combating systemic inflammation. Vitamin C is not only an essential nutrient for humans, but the gold standard to preventing and reducing cold and flu symptoms. It is responsible for a specific role in the antiviral immune response during the early phase of infection.

One study to highlight found that vitamin C was effective in preventing and relieving the symptoms of virus-induced respiratory infections at high dosing; noting the importance of supplementing or consuming vitamin C daily as it’s essential for your health and increasing your intake through supplementation if you start to feel cold or flu-like symptoms.

Vitamin E also plays a major role in immunity because of its ability to enhance immune response and protect against various diseases. Unfortunately, people may not be getting enough due to the lack of these nutrients found in our Western diet, therefore supplementation should be highly considered.

Our superfood ingredient: acai is also touted for its immense benefit on a healthy immune system, owed to its abundance of antioxidants! These are substances that protect cells against free radical damage, which comes into play with the immune system as it is reliant on healthy cells for accurate cell-to-cell communication. Therefore, antioxidants can help enhance immune responsiveness as they protect and repair cells.

Foods are measured through a tool called ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) to determine the score of their antioxidant content and acai ranks incredibly high on this list. In comparison to blueberries for example, 100g of acai pulp has an ORAC of 15,405, whereas the same measurement of blueberries has a score of only 4,669. As you can see, the combination of these three powerful ingredients will leave you primed and prepared to take on any nasty flu, all packed into 3 tasty gummies!

As a company, we stand behind the belief that consumption of natural foods instead of industrial products is an important factor in the maintenance of good health. That’s why we are dedicated to sourcing sustainable, high-quality, natural ingredients and whenever possible, fair trade and organically farmed. That’s why our latest product Acai Berry Twist contains all natural, vegan ingredients and digestive supporting fiber derived from fruit pectin.

Our star ingredient acai is sourced directly from the tropical regions of Brazil, which underwent rigorous documentation and paperwork to prove the high quality and natural sourcing of this ingredient. We take pride in allocating as much time that is needed to source the best, sustainable ingredients and this is just one of the many steps we take that sets us apart to contribute to a healthier, greener world. We don’t compromise on flavour either, all of our gummy flavours are naturally sourced from fresh fruits and vegetables and sweetened with organic stevia farmed in Saskatchewan, making them safe and easy to take for virtually anyone, you won’t ever forget to take them!
