How Can I Help Support My Immunity?

Since 2019, the world has been navigating the rise and spread of Covid-19, having profound effects on our social and medicinal conventions. It's important, amidst uncertainty and worry, that we take a deep breath, and look around ourselves to support each other.

Along with the spread of covid, our bodies are also forced to navigate yearly flu outbreaks, as well as common colds, and other viral infections which are passed around specifically in large cities, or at certain times of the year (i.e. in September when schools/universities return after the summer break). This means our immune systems can be under attack throughout the whole year. In order to remain happy and to maintain long-term wellness, we turn to natural remedies.

Natural remedies can be a great source of nourishment. We believe in taking preventative health measures. This means curating a lifestyle in which you are less likely to get ill, rather than treating illness when it pops up.

With uncertainty and change comes stress, anxiety, sleep disturbances and depression. Reducing and managing our stress at this time is paramount, and standing guard of our minds at this time is of upmost importance. Stress depletes our immunity and causes an inflammation cascade in our body causing ‘dis-ease’ in the body and the mind.

Puresport's products synthesise natural ingredients, in expert-created compounds to help boost natural immunity and energy. The 1500MG CBD Capsules are a best seller. they combine Puresport's infamous, world-leading cBD with ginger, turmeric, and black pepper. These natural ingredients can really help to reduce inflammation while build and maintain a robust and resilient immune system, as well as nourish the nervous system bring peace and calm at a time of turmoil.

See below for a highlight of these traditional and modern hero herbs that have been paired with THC free CBD to regulate sleep, reduce inflammation and pain management:

Curcuminoids are found in both turmeric and ginger. These are polyphenolic compounds which are highly regarded in both Ayuvedic and Western herbal traditions. The most famous of the curcuminoids is curcumin which has been studied extensively and demonstrates pronounced antioxidant, antimutagenic, antiviral, antifungal, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory actions. This helps helps to keep the immune system robust and resilient in times of stress or infection.

In times of overwhelm we need our systems and organs to be functioning optimally, curcumin is not only a warming digestive tonic, it is both nephroprotective (protects the kidneys) and hepatoprotective (protects the liver) and enhances phase I and II liver detoxification, eliminating the load on our system and clearing our waste and inflammation. This therefore helps maintain energy levels, manage sleep quality and clear exogenous toxins from the body.

Curcumin is also a neuroprotective, which helps prevent damage to the brain and improves the function of the nervous system helping us to adapt to, and manage our stress levels. This is particularly beneficial as stress is one of the biggest contributors to inflammation in the human body.

Gingerols are found in ginger. It is a wonderfully calming herb for the gut due to its natural pungent flavour are what give Z. officinale it’s pungent flavour, making it a wonderful calming herb for the gut. Through it's natural compounds, ginger can build the body's defence, aiding in the recovery against acute infections, managing and reducing fever, flushing out the common colds, and supporting respiratory conditions such as acute or chronic bronchitis and asthma.

Gingerols are also powerful antioxidant 'scavengers', and a circulatory stimulant. this means they can clean up damage and debris throughout the system and move stagnant or toxic waste through the blood stream, thus maintaining a healthy operating system.

Natural alternatives can bring extra nourishment and harmony to our body and mind by easing the load on our system and supporting us against other immune weakening conditions.
