How are you feeling one year into the pandemic? Nostalgic, sad, hopeful? I go through all of these emotions regularly, and some days are better than others. What keeps me motivated is my desire to stay in top shape for myself and my family, as well as my passion for researching new products and technologies. Thankfully, this concern with staying healthy coupled with the excitement to learn more about high quality health-related products has led to some amazing discoveries, as of late!
Such has been the case with Zhou Nutrition, who recently contacted me and offered to send me a package of their immunity-boosting products for me to review. I said yes – and I couldn’t be happier with my findings 🙂
Zhou Nutrition is a Utah-based company with a clear purpose in mind: to help its customers accomplish “greatness by nature” by furnishing them with high quality supplements responsibly sourced and meticulously tested. “Whether it’s spirulina from a farm in Southern California or collagen from the rolling pastures of Brazil,” Zhou searches the globe for the highest-quality ingredients, and its products are manufactured in FDA inspected facilities, which are subject to strict Good Manufacturing Practices.
To give back to the community, Zhou share a portion of their profits with Vitamin Angels, a nonprofit which helps at-risk populations gain access to vitamins and minerals, as well as Peace Partnership, which provides counseling and education services to financially disadvantaged families.
Zhou sent me a package with some of their best-selling immunity boosting products: Vitamin C+ gummies, Elder-Mune elderberry gummies, Elder-Immune+ syrup, K2 + D3 gummies, and black seed oil. I tried them all over the course of two weeks, and absolutely loved them!
Who can say no to these appetizing and super helpful vitamin gummies, right? 🙂
- Vitamin C+ gummies
Zhou’s Vitamin C+ gummies were our favorite by far.
Vitamin C is necessary for the synthesis of collagen, which may support healthy, vibrant skin. The unique blend of vitamin C, rosehip, acerola, and bioflavonoids in Zhou’s Vitamin C+ gummies can support the gut and the skin simultaneously, while also boosting immunity. These gummies are vegan, Non-GMO, and are made with no artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives.
I was excited to discover these gummies could be taken by kids too, so I shared them with our daughter, who instantly became a fan of these sightly tart and super flavorful slice-shaped beauties. Two gummies provide 300% of the daily recommended dose of vitamin C!
- Elder-Immune+ syrup
We take elderberry syrup regularly, and I was looking forward to comparing Zhou’s Elder-Immune+ syrup with the syrup we usually use. I was not disappointed! Zhou’s 3-in-1 formula will have you feeling ready to tackle any season, because the extra immunity support you get from Elder-Immune+ syrup comes from natural, organic ingredients like elderberry, raw honey and apple cider vinegar. This antioxidant powerhouse helps support your immune system, while also keeping your family’s immune systems healthy and balanced. As with all the other Zhou products, this syrup is Non-GMO (big yes!)
- Elder-Mune elderberry gummies
Get the big, robust antioxidant power you need in Zhou’s elderberry gummies. Sambucus Elderberry is a potent antioxidant extract that has been used for centuries to support immune system health. In these gummies, Zhou has combined elderberries with vitamin C and zinc to create a 3-in-1 immunity support formula. These delicious little gummies may help support the body in its fight against free radicals, helping to keep your body healthy, balanced, and functioning at its finest. Plus, they’re free of gelatins, making them a vegan friendly option for the entire family (ages 4 and up).
I have never taken elderberry gummies before (we really like our syrup :-)), and I really don’t know why this has been the case. I was super impressed with the flavor and the high potency of the elderberry, vitamin C and zinc combo in these gummies – plus, the flavor was delicious. Highly recommended!
- K2 + D3 gummies
Need more of that sweet, sweet sunshine? Regardless of the forecast, Zhou’s K2+D3 gummies have you covered. My family and I have been taking vitamin D ever since the pandemic started. Prior to testing these gummies, I knew that most of us were deficient in vitamin D3 (the sunshine vitamin). However, what I didn’t know was that vitamin D had to be paired with vitamin K2 to maximize the benefits. Thankfully, Zhou’s gummies are packed 125mcg Vitamin D3 and 90mcg of vitamin K2 that may help support bone and heart health. A great immunity-boosting combo during these challenging times!
- Organic black seed oil
Black seed oil, also known as black cumin seed or nigella sativa, has been used for centuries, and today its benefits are finally becoming widely recognized in the western hemisphere. Prior to testing this Zhou product, I knew about nigella sativa the plant (a familiar occurrence for me when I was growing up), but I had never used the oil for self-care.
Zhou’s black seed oil is sourced from Israel and certified organic by the USDA. This nutrient-dense oil offers benefits including support for the immune system, joint comfort and mobility, healthy heart function, more radiant skin, more luscious locks and digestive comfort.
I used Zhou’s black seed oil on my hands, which are in very poor shape (blisters and dry skin) due to the freezing cold weather. My hands seem to have got a little bit smoother, which is an amazing improvement. So exciting!
I had an amazing time testing Zhou’s immunity-boosting vitamins and supplements, and I will continue to use these in the future. I was excited to discover and to experience high quality products, which help you feel your best during these challenging, unpredictable times which can take a toll on your well-being. Zhou’s products are easy to take, tasty, and the benefits are palpable and long lasting . If you’re looking for quality immunity-boosting supplements which promote self-care and overall well-being, look no further: your search is complete 🙂
