What is Groovy Bee® Plant-Based Vitamin D3 + Prickly Pear Immune Support Drink Mix made of?**
Prickly Pear Fruit Concentrate Powder**
Also known as "nopal," "sabra," and "paddle cactus," the prickly pear fruit is the fruit that grows on top of the leaves produced by the Nopales (Opuntia) cactus, a plant that is native to Mexico and the southwestern United States. This remarkable superfruit is a potent source of essential vitamins, minerals, fatty acids and antioxidants and has a long history of providing various health benefits, such as supporting healthy digestive, cardiovascular, liver and immune functions, as well as maintaining healthy bones, teeth, skin and hair.
Prickly pear fruit concentrate powder is a light pink powder derived from the cactus fruit solids that have been carefully spray-dried to retain maximum nutrition. Thanks to its natural abundance of electrolytes, prickly pear fruit concentrate powder is incredibly useful for replenishing your body's supply of electrolytes lost through perspiration and maintaining healthy fluid balance. It also contains plenty of antioxidant polyphenols and flavonoids that can help protect your body from oxidative stress and support optimal immune function and overall health.
Vitamin D3 Powder**
Vitamin D is a unique, fat-soluble nutrient that the body needs to maintain optimal health. Despite its name, however, vitamin D is actually a hormone. It is often called the “sunshine vitamin” because it is naturally produced from cholesterol when your skin is exposed to ultraviolet B rays (UVB) from the sun. Vitamin D plays a vital role in keeping your body strong and healthy. Some of the many health benefits it provides include supporting healthy bone, brain and immune system functions; maintaining healthy, glowing skin; and uplifting your mood.
There are two types of vitamin D: D2 (ergocalciferol) and D3 (cholecalciferol). A 2011 study from the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism indicated that vitamin D3 supplementation is more effective than vitamin D2 supplementation since D3 is the form that most closely resembles the one your body produces. While vitamin D3 is primarily found in animal-sourced foods, we've found a source of vitamin D3 sourced from non-GMO microalgae. That's why we've included high-quality, lab-verified vitamin D3 powder derived from microalgae in our Groovy Bee® Plant-Based Vitamin D3 + Prickly Pear Immune Support Drink Mix.
How do Prickly Pear Fruit Concentrate Powder and Vitamin D3 Powder support optimal immune health?**
According to a study from the Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology, your body needs adequate levels of vitamin D every day in order for your immune system to work properly. Meanwhile, prickly pear fruit concentrate contains high levels of antioxidants, such as polyphenols, flavonoids, tocopherol and beta-carotene, as well as vitamins C and E. All of these potent antioxidants can protect your body from damage caused by harmful free radicals, thereby providing additional immune support.
While you can consume prickly pear fruit concentrate and vitamin D separately to experience their unique health benefits, taking them together can be more beneficial for your body and overall immune health since they can substantially enhance each other's natural immune-supporting properties. The powerful combination of vitamin D and prickly pear fruit concentrate can work synergistically to help support a robust and healthy immune system, as well as support the healthy functions of your other organs and body systems. For our Groovy Bee® Plant-Based Vitamin D3 + Prickly Pear Immune Support Drink Mix, we use only high-quality and lab-verified vitamin D powder sourced from microalgae and prickly pear fruit concentrate powder to ensure you experience the most of their combined immune-supporting benefits.
