COVID-19 is here to stay for the foreseeable future. By taking care of your family’s immune systems, you can make a conscious effort to strengthen your bodies’ defences. We recommend the following products from our Happy Healthy Family Wellness shop:


1. Ultragard Forté


This multivitamin contains, amongst other vitamins, Vitamin B1, Vitamin B2, Vitamin B6, Vitamin B12, Vitamin C, Vitamin D3, and Zinc. These vitamins are known for boosting your immune system and fighting cold and flu symptoms.


Lifestyle tip:

Now, that you have a balanced multivitamin on your side why not look at bringing some balance to your family’s lifestyle. Eat a balanced diet, make time for exercise, and pay attention to your family’s moods and mental health. These are all factors that are taking strain during the COVID-19 pandemic.


2. Respitron Syrup


Respitron Syrup contains several micronutrients to maximise the body’s respiratory defence mechanisms. This liquid nutritional supplement assists with allergies, asthma and chest infections.


Lifestyle tip:

By adopting certain lifestyle habits, you can better maintain the health of your family’s lungs. Quit smoking, especially around your children. Cigarette toxins damage your lungs, making it harder for your lungs to clean themselves over time.


3. C-Gard:


Vitamin C has several benefits. It is an essential nutrient found in fruits and vegetables that may help shorten the duration and severity of colds. As an antioxidant, Vitamin C can also help reduce inflammation.


Lifestyle tip:

Your body can’t produce vitamin C on its own. It’s pretty easy to meet your family’s vitamin C needs; as long as you eat various fruits and vegetables, like citrus (oranges, grapefruits), guavas, berries, bell peppers, and broccoli.


4. Phytogard


Phytogard contains the powerful nutritional benefits of plant sterols and sterolins. These are phytochemicals found in fruits, vegetables, and other plant sources. These phytochemicals’ primary function is to build a more robust immune system or restore an already compromised immunity. It also benefits inflammatory conditions.


Lifestyle tip:

Get rid of the chips and unhealthy snack in your pantry and instead stock it with a combination of nuts and seeds. Make it your family’s got snacking food during the lockdown and reap the benefits. These are plant-based foods that contain considerable amounts of phytosterols.


5. Infagard


A sore throat, aching ears, or a persistent cough are the first warning signs of disease. Don’t ignore these symptoms! Before you know it you will be stuck in bed wishing you took action long before. We love Sportron’s Infagard for just such and emergency. Nothing fights off infection better than the perfect combination of herbal ingredients you’ll find in Infagard.

Sportron’s Infagard contains:

  • Echinacea
  • Peppermint
  • Astragalus
  • Chamomile
  • Garlic
  • Golden Seal
  • Lemon Verbena
  • Sweet Orange Peel
  • Yarrow

All you need is a couple of drops a day. It also comes in a handy 30ml bottle that you can conveniently take wherever you go.


6. Magnetone D


A Vitamin D and Calcium supplement could also come in handy. We love Sportron’s Magnetone D and Calcitone. Calcium, Magnesium and Vitamin D work hand-in-hand in promoting better sleep.


Lifestyle tip:

Try your absolute best to get enough sleep during this stressful time.  Adopt a healthy routine at home – limit screen time and the use of other electronic devices before bed. The best thing you can do for your family is setting healthy lifestyle examples.
