The Herbal Supplements to Boost Immunity that We Tried and Loved

The Herbal Supplements to Boost Immunity that We Tried and Loved
Supplements for that modern lifestyle!

If you’re into wellness as much as we are, you’ve probably noticed that the number of supplements on offer has skyrocketed during the last couple of years – particularly those that focus on stress management and energy levels, because god knows what we’ve been dealing with. If you look into my kitchen cupboard, you might get a bit overwhelmed with the number of supplements and elixirs I have: ayurvedic powders, collagen in different forms and flavours, and supplements for hair growth, immunity, skin health, digestion, and so much more.

Adding supplements to your daily life means adding another step to your morning routine, which can seem a bit daunting once everything adds up. Still, once you start and stay focused, you will soon see the results, and trust me, you’ll never look back.

Of course, I’m no expert or doctor to recommend to you what you should be putting in your body, as every one of us is different and each individual's needs are unique. The list below is a round-up of things that I have been trying and that have been working for me, so you can take some inspiration and hopefully some of them will work wonders for you, too. As always, consult your GP before starting on anything new!

These are the six supplements I’m taking right now:

Radiance – Vida Glow

Worried about your skin tone and have dark circles that are hard to cover? After more than a month of taking Radiance, I can say that the dark circles that used to be very dark indeed are slightly going away. Radiance is a once-daily ingestible capsule from the Vida Glow’s Advanced Repair range. If you suffer from pigmentation, its unique blend of potent and bioavailable actives addresses dull, discoloured skin caused by excess melanin production.

What makes Radiance a staple in wellness devotees' cupboards is its key active, SkinAx2™, as clinical and user trials show Radiance diminishes and brightens melasma pigmentation, acne-induced dark spots, age- and sun-spots, and dark under-eye circles. It is clinically shown to increase luminosity by 26%, significantly reduce facial imperfections by 18%, and reduce dark circles by 12%.

How to take it?

Take one capsule daily with food.

Power Activist – Aède

If you knew me, you would think I don’t need a hair growth supplement in my life, as my voluminous mane is one the first things you will notice from my looks; however, with water quality, stress, and a few more indicators kicking in, I lose a lot of hairs daily. Power Activist is an all-natural vegan supplement designed to improve hair health, growth, and thickness – and don’t forget caring for our beloved scalp.

Read the list below, and if at least you feel seen with one of the following, Aéde will support you in the journey to #hairgoals:

  • Hair that’s fine, thinning, or shedding excessively
  • Stress-related hair loss
  • Hormonal imbalances
  • Androgenic alopecia
  • Thyroid conditions
  • Certain nutritional deficiencies
  • Hormonal hair loss associated with ageing or postpartum

Super You – Moon Juice

Is 2022 the year you want to leave stress behind and listen to your body once and for all? Then allow me to introduce you to Super You; that’s how you’ll feel after a few weeks of usage. With the current world status, ongoing stress can undoubtedly trigger increased cortisol and translate into your days as fatigue, lack of focus, and even irritability. SuperYou is clinically tested to support balanced cortisol levels, reduce fatigue, whether it’d be physical, mental, or emotional, and control stress-related effects on the body.

This herbal goodie has a blend of potent ingredients that every wellness geek would recommend:

  • Ashwagandha: Reduces the impact of stress and the look of accelerated aging on the body while supporting skin health.
  • Rhodiola: Reduces fatigue and increases alertness without overstimulation.
  • Shatavari: Supports hormonal balance, promotes reproductive health, and enhances drive.

How to take it?

Take two capsules every morning, with or without food—commit daily.

Skin - Metabolism – Tuchuzy Health

As a beauty editor and wellness advocate, I take serious care about the health of my metabolism. This supplement blends Australian organic orange peel, aloe vera, and Kakadu plum to improve digestion naturally, three ingredients that are very much aligned with skin health. And therefore, Skin - Metabolism also supports collagen formation while relieving symptoms of acne.

Suppose there’s one ingredient that changed the course of my skin tone – that would be zinc, which is present in this solution, as it supports wound healing (acne scarring). Vitamin C helps on the side of collagen formation, general health, and skin health, and maintains connective tissue health and appearance. Ginger, turmeric, and Gentiana lutea are the perfect extras to support healthy digestion and relieve symptoms of indigestion and digestive discomfort.

How to take it?

Take two capsules once daily with food.

L1FE CirQul8 – Jeunesse

After two months of taking L1FE CirQul8, I can confidently say that your energy levels will be regulated and reach new heights. Made of a fascinating combination of scientifically researched ingredients that support cardiovascular health, immunity, and energy, this is a perfect boost for everyone. Ubiquinol is the star ingredient in this formula, supporting heart health, among other benefits.

These are the ingredients that will take your immunity to another level:

  • Ubiquinol supports heart and cardiovascular system function and health while reducing free radicals formed in the body.
  • Annatto Tocotrienols support immune system health and function and relieve inflammation.
  • Nicotinamide (Vitamin B3) helps energy levels.
  • Pyriodoxine (Vitamin B6) promotes nervous system health and function.
  • Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C) aids in connective tissue production and formation while supporting bone health.
  • Zinc supports cognitive health and mental function.

How to take it?

Take one soft capsule with water once or twice daily.

Enzymes – The Gut Cø

Not only am I obsessed with the brand’s aesthetic, but their product Enzymes is the perfect companion for a healthy digestive function. You know what they say – beauty starts on the inside, and let me be honest with you, if your gut is not happy, your skin will tell. This beautiful formula works by digesting food into smaller molecules, enabling your body to absorb the minerals and vitamins from the food you eat. This, in turn, can help improve energy levels, reduce inflammation and allergies, and reduce skin outbreaks.

Some of the benefits of taking Enzymes are below:

  • Decrease bloating and increase the nutrients absorbed by the gut.
  • Break down food into minute particles, improving overall digestion.
  • Enzymes {digest + debloat} is a synergistic blend of enzymes essential for the digestion of proteins, fats, and carbohydrates.
  • Help decrease the symptoms of lactose intolerance and help the digestion of dietary fats.
  • Digestive enzymes decline after the age of thirty, and some people don’t produce enough digestive enzymes for various reasons.

How to take it?

Start by taking one tablet with a meal. Then increase to 2 tablets with a meal. You can take the tablets just before a meal, with the meal, or at the earliest 30 minutes before a meal.
