While we like to shout about the benefit of our product from the rooftop, no one says it better than our customers.

In 2020 we ran a survey of almost 1,000 of our customers and asked them to tell us about their experience with taking their Shots. We were interested to know what benefits our customers felt, and whether those benefits increased over time with continual use.

We found the results really interesting, so we thought we’d share the results with you.

Summary:

  • Of our customers who take their Shots, it is those who take it daily that see the most benefit
  • The longer our customers take their Shots, the more pronounced the benefits become
  • The greatest areas of improvement over longer term usage were an improvement in energy levels, overall health and wellbeing, and less coughs and colds.

We all know good nutrition is the foundation of health. Eating a balanced diet and getting your recommended intake of fruits and vegetables is crucial in ensuring your body is operating at optimum levels, and that your immune system is supported. The survey results show us just how much of an impact increasing your intake of nutrient dense fruits and vegetables can be to your health and wellbeing.

The following chart represents our customers who take their Shots daily, across the full range of our products.

Nutrient Rescue 2020 survey chart

“I have loved the increased immunity I have 3 young kids who have had cold after cold this winter and normally I would get the colds as well, but since starting the Shots I haven’t been sick which is amazing considering how much my kids share their germs with me” - Fiona

One of the more interesting benefits, according to a whopping 84% of our daily 6+ month Shotsters was around the reduction of coughs and colds.

So, how do our Shots help with coughs and colds?

Nutrients such as the polyphenols and carotenoids in brightly coloured fruit and vegetables support our immune system’s ability to fight infection. Polyphenol-rich foods can also help prevent and treat common colds and flu.

Blackcurrants, which can be found in our Green and Double Shot powders, are one of the densest known sources of the polyphenol antioxidant class called anthocyanins, which have been shown to help our immune system defend us against other viral infections, such as those that cause common colds.

Studies have shown that anthocyanins can prevent influenza viruses from penetrating human cells and may inhibit viral release once the cell is infected.

Technically the only way to resist a flu virus is to have antibody protection against it, either from past infection or arguably from vaccination, but increasing evidence suggests anthocyanins may help by making the immune system more efficient at addressing and clearing a virus if it does encounter one.

The way the polyphenol anthocyanins in blackcurrants work with the immune system means that if we do get sick, the severity and subsequent tissue damage from the infection may be decreased, thus allowing us to recover faster.

Blackcurrants have been shown to benefit those with seasonal flu and are a wonderful complement to an already healthy wholefood diet.

Nutrient Rescue wholefood powders are a quick and easy way to ensure you’re getting what you need when life’s demands make this difficult for us. It ensures you’re getting your baseline quota.
