It’s not easy being a student. With the new academic year fast approaching, there’s a lot to consider. You’ll need to boost your brainpower to make sure all those lectures don’t go to waste, but your general health also needs some support. You’ll need to help out your immune system to dodge the dreaded Freshers’ Flu, and the energy-boosting vitamins and minerals to make sure you enjoy every minute of the new term.
It’s all available in our new Student Essentials bundle launching this month.
It contains four essential supplements:
Boost your brainpower - Neuro Cognitive Complex
The most important thing any student can rely on isn’t your Student Union discount card. It’s your brain. Getting the most out of your little grey cells is crucial if you’re going to walk away with a great degree. And that’s what our Brain Power Complex does.
It’s packed with choline - a mineral that your brain uses to create neurotransmitters. They’re the linking parts of your brain that help you form new memories. Especially important when you’ve got a crucial lecture that’s going to open up your whole dissertation.
But that’s not all, because this supplement is packed with other mood and memory boosting compounds. As any Biology undergrad can tell you, Pantothenic Acid, Iron, Zinc and Iodine all help your mental functions run at full speed. Even when you were out last night instead of cramming for your upcoming exams.
And speaking of those late nights…
Boost your energy - Vitamin B12
Whether it’s a late night study session, or a late night at the local bars, you’re not going to be in bed by 10pm as often as you perhaps should be. So you need something to boost your energy levels. And while you might think cans of supermarket own-brand energy drink or endless cups of coffee will get you through the semester, you’d be far better off doing something good for your body.
Vitamin B12 is shown to reduce tiredness and fatigue, and helps your body’s metabolism turn food (yes, even that 2am pizza) into usable energy to keep you going through the day. It helps keep your moods stable - especially important when you’re away from your friends and family in a new city - and can even support your immune system.
Which brings us on to…
Dodge freshers’ flu - Vitamin C
The freshers’ flu is real. It’s what happens when you get a group of new people who’ve all been exposed to different germs and viruses in their home towns, put them together in a hall of residence, give them reasons to stay up late and mix in a lot of immune system suppressing alcohol and junk food.
But you want to be fit, healthy, and ready for the first day of term. So give your immune system a helping hand with a daily dose of Vitamin C. It helps shore up your natural immunity to all those coughs and colds that will be flying round your new term-time home, and makes sure your natural defences are in full working order.
It’ll even help with that all-important energy we mentioned earlier.
Which only leaves one more thing to consider.
Improve your overall health - Vitamin D
Vitamin D is one of the most important vitamins for your overall health. It supports your brain, your energy, your immune system and your mood. But you get it from sunshine.
If you’re in bed all morning, in lectures all afternoon, pre-drinking all evening and partying all night, you won’t be seeing much of the sun at all. Especially not in those early weeks of the term. So make sure you’re getting enough Vitamin D with a daily supplement.
All of the supplements in our new Student Essentials bundle are vegan, and they’re packed in compostable packaging to cement your green credentials. And while you can buy each supplement separately, you’ll be able to save even more by buying them together as part of our bundle.
Brainpower, energy, immunity and better health all for pennies a day. What more could any student want?
