It's household knowledge that vitamin C supports immunity.
However, it doesn't work the full effect of its magic all on its lonesome… It has some nutrient colleagues on the scene to help support it doing its job.
We'd like to introduce you to the other nutrient superheroes of strong immunity— zinc and vitamin D.
We're going to really get to know them, not just shake their hands. All of these different nutrients come in different forms, some of which are more effective than others.
At BePure, designing and producing quality nutritional support – that really makes a difference to the health and lives of our customers – is of the utmost importance to us.
Here's an insight into we've designed products that can genuinely work with your body to support your immune function.
BePure Super Boost C is a top-quality, high strength dose of vitamin C. To aid in absorption, we've used vitamin C in its most bioavailable form, along with 2:1 ratio of bioflavonoids to vitamin C. The bioflavonoids recycle the vitamin C electron, so once this enters your body it essentially provides you with double the vitamin C. How good!
We added zinc, magnesium and calcium to buffer the vitamin c which makes it nice and gentle on the stomach.
BePure Zinc Restore is packed with high strength, high bioavailable form of zinc picolinate which research shows is the most bioavailable form for humans (at those high levels) . However, zinc is one of the four ingredients found in BePure Zinc Restore.
Each serving of Zinc Restore includes 1000mg of buffered vitamin C (in the forms of ascorbic acid, magnesium ascorbate and calcium ascorbate) to assist in the absorption of the zinc. Research shows that vitamin C facilitates better absorption compared to when zinc picolinate is taken in isolation. The magnesium and calcium bound to the ascorbate are 'bonus minerals'.
Vitamin B6 and zinc generally get absorbed together, and ofter act as co-factors on the same enzymes and pathways together in the body.
Not strictly, but often, zinc deficiency coincides with B6 deficiency and vice versa.
Dunaliella Salina is an algae that works as is a general antioxidant. This helps to detoxify heavy metals from the body, particularly from the digestive system. Dunaliella Salina binds to copper, and removes it from the system. As copper blocks the uptake of zinc, sending in the Dunaliella Salina alongside, allows our bodies to make the most of the zinc we take.
Often we see that people with high levels of heavy metals struggle to absorb zinc even if it's in its most bioavailable form, and even when taken with vitamin C. By supporting the detoxification of copper, zinc can be absorbed much easier.
BePure Vit D Restore contains vitamin D3 in the form of naturally sourced cholecalciferol, combined with MCT coconut oil.
Vitamin D3 is an active form of vitamin D, meaning it's ready to be utilised immediately. With inactive forms, our body need to use other nutrients to convert them into active forms. Active forms of nutrients are always the most efficient ways to go!
