ANTIOX-IMMUNE - What are the benefits? Your immune system is your body’s first line of defence against infections, so make sure you’re giving your body what it needs to tackle those invaders. Antiox-Immune contains zinc and vitamin C and selenium, all of which contribute to the normal function of the immune system and the protection of cells from oxidative stress. Our formula also contains lycopene which is a powerful antioxidant which supports vascular health. Lycopene is a plant nutrient with fantastic antioxidant properties. It is a naturally occurring chemical which gives fruit and vegetables their red colour. 5-HTP with L-Tryptophan - What are the benefits? 5-HTP (5-Hydroxytryptophan) is made naturally in the body with the help of the essential amino acid l-tryptophan, but our bodies don’t naturally produce l-tryptophan, so we must obtain this important amino acid from our diet. The Lily & Loaf 5-HTP formula includes naturally sourced 5-HTP derived from the griffonia simplicifolia plant, hop flowers extract and l-tryptophan, along with vitamins B6 and B12 and magnesium. 5-HTP helps to raise serotonin levels which can lead to an increased feeling of happiness. VITAMIN D3 - What are the benefits? Often referred to as ‘the sunshine vitamin,’ Vitamin D is generally acquired by the body in two ways; exposure to the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) rays and dietary intake, so supplementation is especially important during the colder, darker months of the year when we see very little sunshine. Vitamin D has many roles - it helps in the development and maintenance of bones, muscle, and teeth, and the absorption and use of calcium and phosphorus, it also contributes to the normal function of the immune system and inflammation response.
