Factors such as cold, wet weather, high physical and mental stress situations and an unbalanced diet drain the body’s defences and weaken the immune system. This makes the body more susceptible to pathogens such as viruses and bacteria, as well as to oxidative stress. For example, according to Deutsche Familienversicherung, adults suffer from a cold 2 to 4 times a year, with children getting colds even more frequently. In these periods of life in particular, your immune system and protective barriers need active support. The supply of vitamins, minerals and secondary plant substances are some factors which play a key role in the complex processes of immune defence. The sanotact® range includes high-quality products with proven nutrient profiles and innovative formulations designed specifically to strengthen the body’s defences and natural protective barriers.
