Always getting ill? Immune-boosting supplements may be just what you need to get back to good health. Here at Mountainlife, we stock a wide range of natural health remedies to support and strengthen your immune system.

How does the immune system work?

Our immune systems are made up of a complex collection of cells, processes and chemicals, which work together to fight off invading viruses, toxins and bacteria. The stronger your immune system, the less likely you are to get ill from infections and disease.

Maintaining a healthy immune system

The best way to strengthen your immune system is by making healthy lifestyle choices. Eating a balanced diet, taking regular exercise and getting enough sleep will all help to improve your immune system.

Sometimes, you might need a little extra support. And that’s where immune-boosting supplements come in. Certain vitamins, minerals and herbs have been proven to improve immune response, and the good news? We have a fantastic range of them at Mountainlife. Take a look at our list below to find the best supplements for immune system boosting.

immune-boosting-shilajit

1. Siberian Wild Harvested Shilajit

Shilajit is a naturally occurring plant-based tar sourced from the Altai mountains in Siberia. It contains over 85 bioactive minerals and is one of the best sources of Fulvic & Humic Acids. Empowered by antioxidants, anti-inflammatories and rejuvenating properties, this potent substance is at the very core of ancient Ayurvedic and Shamanistic medicine.

How does Shilajit boost immunity?

Shilajit contains a wide range of essential nutrients, including zinc, copper, iron and manganese. These nutrients support the work of crucial enzymes in the body, like Superoxide Dismutase, Catalase and Glutathione - all of which shield against harmful bugs, germs and stresses.

Shilajit is also a proven immunomodulator. This means it helps to regulate the immune system. Additionally, it increases the bioavailability of other foods and supplements, ensuring the body absorbs all of the important nutrients.

Can Shilajit help fight COVID-19?

A strong immune system is essential to fighting off the COVID-19 virus, hence why many people are turning to immune-boosting supplements like Shilajit. Unfortunately, there isn’t currently any scientific evidence to prove Shilajit fights COVID-19, however, it is certainly worth taking extra measures to keep yourself fit and healthy.

How to strengthen your immune system with Shilajit

A little Shilajit every day can go a long way in improving your overall health. We recommend taking a small pea-sized amount of Shilajit resin and dissolving it in water. For best results, drink Mountainlife Shilajit twice a day, before breakfast and dinner.

We also stock 100% pure Shilajit powder, which is a dried and ground version of our Shilajit resin, along with Shilajit capsules for added convenience.

Is Shilajit suitable for vegans?

Mountainlife Shilajit is 100% plant-based and suitable for vegans. It is also GMO-free and gluten-free.

2. Reishi Mushroom Powder

Here at Mountainlife, we stock a wide range of potent medicinal mushrooms, offering a whole host of health benefits for the human body. But if it's an immune-boosting health supplement you’re after, choose Reishi.

Our 100% pure Reishi Mushroom Powder helps to strengthen the immune system by battling infections, reducing inflammation, strengthening the gut, improving mental health and enhancing quality of sleep.

In ancient Chinese medicine, reishi is so highly valued for its immune strengthening and rejuvenating properties that it earned the title ‘mushroom of immortality.’

Other medicinal mushrooms also have immune-boosting benefits including Cordyceps Miltaris, Lion’s Mane, Maitake, Shitake and Turkey Tail.

How to take Reishi mushroom powder

Boost your immune system by taking ½ tsp (approx. 2g) of Mountainlife Reishi mushroom powder daily. Stir it into water, juice or your favourite superfood smoothie. Many people enjoy Reishi as an immune-boosting tea in the morning. It makes a delicious (and far healthier) alternative to coffee.

We also stock a high strength Reishi Mushroom extract. This immune-boosting powder is made from the fruiting body of the mushroom, which contains all of the health-boosting properties. It is independently tested to ensure it contains no less than 30% polysaccharides and 20% beta glucans.

Is Reishi Di Tao sourced?

Mountainlife Reishi Mushroom Powder and our high strength extract are Di Tao sourced from the Wuyi Mountains in China.

All of the mushroom powders and extracts in our range are 100% Di Tao sourced. This means they are sourced from their natural growing environment in China. Apart from Chaga, which is Di Tao sourced from its homeland in Siberia. Check out our blog post on Di Tao sourcing to learn the benefits of this practice.

bee-pollen-immunity

3. Bee Pollen Granules

When it comes to immune-boosting foods, Bee Pollen granules are the go-to supplement. A primary food source for bees, the tiny balls of flower pollen contain over 250 incredible bioactive substances including essential fatty acids, proteins, sugars, minerals and vitamins.

But it’s not just bees that can enjoy them. Humans have been eating bee pollen for centuries and the ancient Greeks even fed it to their Olympic athletes, naming it ‘Food of the Gods.’

How does Bee Pollen boost immunity?

Bee Pollen granules are rich in Thiamine, a complex B Vitamin that helps regulate and stabilise the immune system. Additionally, it contains zinc and iron, both of which help boost the immune system, balance hormones and energise the body.

How to take Bee Pollen for immune system health

Bee pollen can be enjoyed alongside other immune-boosting superfoods, as part of a healthy balanced diet. Add a teaspoon to breakfast smoothies, cereal, yoghurt or oats. Alternatively, you can sprinkle it onto salads for added crunch or take it straight off the spoon.
