Watermelon is packed with Vitamins A, B6 and C which help to strengthen the immune system. Vitamin C also aids in the absorption of iron, which plays a vital role in supporting our body’s natural defences and keeping illness and infections at bay.
Lemons are a great source of Vitamin C, a natural antioxidant that strengthens and improves the immune system. Lemons also have antibacterial and antiviral properties.
Ginger has powerful antiviral and antibacterial properties and is rich in antioxidants which can help to lower inflammation and keep your immune system healthy.
The phytonutrients in honey are responsible for its antioxidant properties, as well as its antibacterial and antifungal effects. Honey can be a great way to support the body's ability to fight diseases.
Coconut oil contains particular fats that have been shown to have healing properties. These include antiviral, antibacterial and antifungal benefits, helping to modulate immunity.
Watermelon-flavoured Vitamin C Zooki helps your immune system, energy levels, skin and brain function healthily. The delicious watermelon flavour adds a juicy dash of flavour and a daily shot of lipid-encapsulated Vitamin C.
