As the festive season approaches with all its social events, shopping and entertaining, we often find our systems need a boost to make sure we’re in a fit condition to enjoy it all.
To stay healthy we’re trying to eat nutritious, vitamin-rich foods and to get outside to enjoy the beautiful autumn countryside with lots of walks and cycling.
But we parents live in fear of the kids coming down with coughs, colds and the dreaded ‘puke bug’. I am already giving Caitlin and Ieuan daily probiotics and slathering them in anti-bacterial hand gel but there’s always the chance that they will come home with something virulent that we’ll all get.
So we’ve been trying new Redoxon Triple Action effervescent tablets, which contain high strength vitamin D to help support the immune system, vitamin C to help us to feel energised and zinc to help maintain our skin.
Why is Vitamin D important?
Our bodies need vitamin D to absorb calcium and promote bone growth. Too little vitamin D results in soft bones in children (rickets) and fragile, misshapen bones in adults. Vitamin D is also needed for other important body functions and a lack of it has been linked to breast cancer, colon cancer, prostate cancer, heart disease, depression, weight gain, and other maladies.
Redoxon is the leading immune brand in the UK with over 80 years of experience in helping to keep families’ immune systems on top form.
There’s Redoxon Triple Action for when you need a bit of extra help and Redoxon Every Day Immune support for day to day support.
Caitlin and Ieuan have been trying the Triple Action formula in the form of gummies for children.
Redoxon Triple Action effervescent tablets
When you need a bit of extra help, Redoxon Triple Action is a combination of high strength vitamin C, D and zinc to support your immune system.
Why use Redoxon Triple Action?
- Top up of vitamin D even when there is less sunlight. During the summer months, vitamin D is mainly formed in the skin through UV-B sunlight, and functions to help support the immune system
- Vitamin C can help you release your energy
- Your skin is the body’s first line of defence. Zinc can help maintain your skin
The effervescent tablets are for adults and children over 12 years of age.
Simply dissolve 1 tablet per day in a glass of water to make a refreshing orange drink. Available in packs of 10 RRP of £3.80.
Redoxon Every Day Immune Support for day to day support
Even though you may not feel it, your immune system works 24 hours a day and that is why you need to take care of it. When you have a busy lifestyle, sometimes it can be good to have extra support.
Redoxon Every Day is a daily multivitamin for children and adults, providing day to day support for the immune system. The effervescent tablets contain vitamins (A, B6, B12, C, D and folic acid) and minerals (zinc, iron, copper and selenium).
Why use Redoxon Every Day?
• Vitamin A, vitamin C and zinc help maintain the skin
• Vitamin C, iron, vitamin B12 and vitamin B6 help reduce tiredness and fatigue
• Vitamins (C, A, D, B6, B12 and folic acid) and minerals (zinc, iron, copper and selenium) help support your immune system – your body’s natural protector
Children over 12 years of age and adults: Dissolve 1 tablet per day in a glass of water to make a refreshing orange drink. Children 6-12 years old: Half a tablet per day. Redoxon Every Day come in packs of 15 (RRP £5.00) and 30 (RRP £9.50).
These make a lovely, refreshing orangey drink with no chemical after-taste. It dissolves easily and I wasn’t left with powder at the bottom of the glass.
