What supplements are helpful for the Winter ahead?

We all know how long the winter can be and we are well aware that we need to build up our immunity against those cold dark evenings. So, let’s talk about our favourite nutritional supplements which can give you energy and a healthy glow. So which are our number one choices and what’s in them?

In our opinion, one of the best family of nutritional supplements is the Revive brand. Revive Active Food Supplement is a comprehensive multi-vitamin/multi-mineral suitable from age 18 upwards. It contains 150mg of Co-enzyme Q10, which is found naturally in your cells and helps your body create energy. From our mid twenties onwards, the levels of Co Q10 in our body starts to decrease and this product boosts your Co-enzyme Q10 reserves which can really boost your energy. It contains the amino acid L-arginine which helps to open the blood vessels and support heart health. These amino acids are particularly important to look after our cardiovascular health from mid thirties onwards.

So what’s the difference between this and Revive Active Zest Active? Well Revive Active Zest Active is also a comprehensive multi-vitamin/multi-mineral suitable from age 18 upwards. It’s recommended for ages 18-35, due to the fact that it doesn’t contain the cardiovascular ingredients, however it can be used by adults of any age. However, unlike Revive Active Food Supplement, Zest Active contains Wellmune, which helps support a healthy immune system, Choline, to support mental performance and memory and L-Theanine, an amino acid found in green tea which has been studied for its effect to support mental relaxation.

And so what’s in Revive Active Beauty Complex. Well Revive Active Beauty Complex is a complimentary product and can be safely taken in conjunction with Revive Active Food Supplement or Zest Active. It is designed specifically to support SkinHair & Nail health. This product contains 7000mg of Collagen for skin firmness & elasticity, Hyaluronic Acid for skin moisture & reduction of fine lines and Phytoceramides which can penetrate the four layers in our skin, boosting our natural collagen production which can lead to skin plumpness.

A question we often hear is it possible to take them together? Well, Revive Active Food Supplement should not be taken with Revive Active Zest Active as both are multi vitamin and mineral supplements. Therefore, select the one that best suits your own needs depending on your age and the ingredients. However, the Beauty Complex can actually be taken with either Revive Active Food Supplement or Revive Active Zest Active so you can look great on  the outside as well as having a real energy boost!
