We are so excited to announce the launch of our brand-new product, Red Leaf Immunity!
With double the caffeine of Red Leaf Pre-Workout, immune-boosting ingredients, and electrolytes, Red Leaf Immunity helps you stay energized, hydrated, and healthy all year long.
Before getting into the details of these immune-boosting ingredients, let’s chat a bit about our immune health. Our immune system is a mighty group of organ systems and defense cells, such as white blood cells, lymph nodes, and bone marrow, that protect our bodies from harmful pathogens that are all around us. There are several factors that can weaken your immune system that we should all try our best to avoid: lack of sleep, smoking, lack of exercise, too few fruits and vegetables in our diets. However, it can be difficult to successfully stay on top of these things all the time and during a global pandemic, it’s important to have reinforcement.
Intermountain Health states, “COVID-19, is a novel pathogen, meaning those who contract it have no existing antibodies to mount a defense. For that reason, it remains imperative to continue practicing social distancing, good hand hygiene, and cough etiquette. However, developing a strong immune system while you’re healthy can sustain your body as it familiarizes itself with the new virus in the event you get sick. Taking steps now to boost your immune health can also help you fight other common bugs such as cold or flu viruses.” This is why we created the Red Leaf Immunity supplement, as immune support has never been more important. Now let’s dive deeper into the ingredients that make Red Leaf Immunity so powerful.
Amino acids, also known as the compounds responsible for protein synthesis in our bodies, are super important for our immune systems. In fact, according to the British Journal of Nutrition, amino acids have long been known to boost the immune system, “adequate dietary provision of all amino acids is necessary for sustaining normal immunocompetence… Amino acids are required for the synthesis of a variety of specific proteins (including cytokines and antibodies) and regulate key metabolic pathways of the immune response to infectious pathogens.” Red Leaf Immunity contains all three essential branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs), as well as glutamine, an immune-boosting powerhouse, “As a major energy substrate for cells of the immune system, glutamine plays an important role in their function and homeostasis.”
B vitamins are another essential nutrient for increasing your body’s immunity and can be found in dark leafy greens, legumes, and whole grains, just to name a few. Tespo says, “The Vitamin B Complex, which consists of eight vitamins, works together to fight off germs and bugs. It helps to boost the body’s defense system and keep energy levels up, which is key to maintaining a healthy immune system.” Vitamin B6, in particular, is in charge of creating new red blood cells and transporting oxygen throughout the body to strengthen the immune system. Our immunity supplement contains three B vitamins, B1, B6, and B12, to boost your immunity. Red Leaf Immunity contains 100% of your Daily Recommended Value of B1 and B6 and a whopping 10,000% of your Daily Recommended Value of Vitamin B12. This is a great addition to your routine to keep your immune system healthy and strong, especially if your diet is lacking in those foods rich in B Vitamins.
Healthy Energy and Hydration
In addition to supporting your immune system, Red Leaf Immunity also has 80 milligrams of caffeine per serving for a healthy boost of energy to last you all day long. This is a perfect alternative to high-caffeine energy and coffee drinks, and won’t leave you with a nasty crash.
Lastly, Red Leaf Immunity contains electrolytes in the form of a mineral complex to improve overall hydration. Why is that important? In a great article by Medical News Today about the power and importance of electrolytes, they state that electrolytes “regulate nerve and muscle function, hydrate the body, balance blood acidity and pressure, and help rebuild damaged tissue.” Especially if you’re working hard in the gym every day, replenishing fluids lost through exercise is super important for your recovery, progress and overall health.
Immunity has never been more important than during Covid-19. Our mission is to bring you the best products and knowledge to help you stay healthy no matter what life throws your way.
