Health benefits of the immunity gummies

  • ELDERBERRY: You’ve probably seen elderberry syrup, gummies, and other natural remedies in your local health foods store. People have been using elderberry for thousands of years to treat colds, cases of flu, swelling, inflammation, and pain. This powerful plant contains many nutrients and antioxidants, explaining why cultures have used it for medicinal purposes. It’s rich in Vitamin C, which is known for its ability to keep colds and flu cases at bay. It also contains high amounts of phenolic acids and anthocyanins, both antioxidants which reduce oxidative stress and inflammation.
  • GELATIN POWDER:  Gelatin, a protein that comes from collagen, has plentiful health benefits. Not only is it almost entirely comprised of protein, but it also contains almost all the essential amino acids. Gelatin helps improve joint and bone health, support healthy skin, hair, and nails, and even boost brain function.
  • ANTIOXIDANTS: Just half of a medium-sized grapefruit contains 64% of the RDI of Vitamin C, and 28% of the RDI of Vitamin A. Vitamin C helps protect the cells from bacteria and viruses, and Vitamin A aids in lowering inflammation in the body. Grapefruit also contains other powerful antioxidants such as lycopene and flavanones.
  • LEMONS: Lemons also contain tons of Vitamin C, over half of your RDI in just one piece of fruit. They also improve digestive health and help prevent kidney stones.
  • ORANGES: Oranges are the ultimate powerhouse for fighting colds, containing 80% of the RDI of Vitamin C in one orange. They’re also high in flavonoids, which have anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, and antiviral benefits.
  • APPLE CIDER VINEGAR: ACV contains probiotics due to yeast and bacteria formed during the fermentation process. It also is rich in B-vitamins and polyphenols, which bolster the immune system.
  • GINGER: This powerful root has been used in traditional medicines for millennia. It’s mostly been used to treat nausea, indigestion, infections, and pain.
  • HONEY: Honey is also known for its antioxidant content and is commonly used to ward off colds, coughs, and respiratory illnesses. It also can help heal wounds and burns as it’s a powerful anti-inflammatory.
