Adaptogens, your allies in combating stress and fatigue

Facing each day with energy isn’t always easy. Luckily, there are foods that help us in this endeavour, not only providing us with nutrients but also helping our bodies better adapt to certain external conditions, such as stress or exhaustion. Adaptogenic herbs are a great example of this.

As their name suggests, adaptogenic foods help our bodies better adapt to difficult situations we’re exposed to every day that could affect our heath.

They’re safe substances that improve our resistance to stress, act to stabilise our internal equilibrium, are invigorating, improve our bodies’ natural defences and enhance our overall feeling of wellness.

If you’re used to leading a healthy lifestyle and looking after your nutrition, you’ve surely heard them mentioned.
In powder form, mixed into teas or smoothies, used as toppings in salads, on bowls or in desserts… There are different ways to include them as part of your daily nutrition and take advantage of their benefits, but newyou. offers you a new way that’s even easier and full of flavour.

newyou. chocolate bars contain different adaptogenic herbs to help you in your daily quest to feel good and take care of yourself, both inside and out, every day of the week. Because no one said taking care of yourself meant you had to give up the pleasure of a daily bit of chocolate.

newyou. chocolate bars contain probiotics, prebiotics and different adaptogens to enhance different aspects. Plus, they contain no added sugars; they’re sweetened with agave. Make your daily routine easier with one of these flavours.

Moringa

Moringa, also known as the “tree of life”, is a medicinal plant with antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects as well as significant satiating effects, which makes it an ideal ingredient in slimming diets or those aiming to reduce body fat.

If this is your goal, the newyou. Slim line is specially made for you. With a subtle forest fruit taste and vanilla scent, newyou. Slim bars act to accelerate your body’s metabolism so that you can begin to see results in just 12-18 weeks.

Maca

Maca is a root with significant health benefits. One of its most common uses is as a revitalising tonic, as it’s a key source of long-term energy and reduces fatigue. It also has beneficial effects on the endocrine and reproductive systems and helps to improve sleep quality and mood.

It’s a true “superfood” that is not to be forgotten in your daily routine and should be complemented by other healthy habits such as yoga, meditation, walks outside in nature…

That’s why newyou. makes it easy for you with its newyou.power line, which also includes pea and hemp plant proteins. So you can enjoy the full flavour of superior chocolate with no regrets and reward your body with extra vitality and energy.

Reishi

The Reishi mushroom helps the immune system run smoothly and improves sleep cycles. Also known as the “mushroom of eternal youth”, it improves our mood, acts as an antihistamine and is an anti-inflammatory.

If you face marathon workdays on a daily basis that put your endurance to the test, the newyou. inmune. line, with a subtle orange aftertaste, will help you boost your defences and meet the day with more strength than ever.

Unlike other stimulants, adaptogens help produce energy naturally, working in harmony with your body. While other products, like sugar or caffeine, give us a fleeting energy boost, adaptogens provide that energy high in a sustained way.

100% natural herbs and plants that help you feel better daily and that you can now consume almost without realising it. With newyou. all you need to do is figure out which aspect of your health needs reinforcing and choose the type that best fits your needs in order to make it part of your routine.

How to strengthen your immune system

happiness

A healthy immune system is your body’s first line of defence against external threats that may come in the form of infections, viruses and harmful bacteria. It also helps your body recover from illnesses such as the flu or the common cold more quickly and generally works to keep you in good health.

Amidst the stress and high pace of daily life, maintaining a robust immune system is more important than ever. Developing and strengthening it doesn’t need to be a complicated task. It’s more like a long-distance race in which small, day-to-day decisions play a fundamental role. Having a glass of orange juice with breakfast in the morning, taking daily walks, practising a bit of yoga or any type of exercise or including probiotics in our diets are just a few small daily gestures that can help our bodies to feel even stronger.

What are you waiting for? Let’s get to work.

 

Get moving!

 

A great way to support your immune system is by exercising and staying active. Exercise helps activate the immune system, and a study published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine suggests that people who exercise at least five days a week are 50% less likely to catch a cold as compared to people who lead a sedentary lifestyle.

 

Sleep and rest

 

For adults, getting between 7 and 8 hours of sleep every day helps strengthen the immune system. This period of rest is what permits our bodies to reset and re-ready themselves to combat potential infections and viruses. When we don’t sleep well, our bodies need to work harder to stay alert.

 

Add the proper food and supplements to your diet

 

Minerals such as zinc, which is found in some types of fish and in dried fruit, for example, play a vital role in the production of different types of immune cells.
Vitamin C (found in citruses and vegetables) also plays an essential role in the prevention of illnesses, thanks to its power as an antioxidant.

Take care of your microbiota

 

Stress, detrimental lifestyle habits, certain illnesses and treatments (such as antibiotics)… All of it directly affects our microbiota and can cause part of our community of “friendly bacteria” to disappear, leading to disorders and imbalances in our bodies.

The digestive tract is home to an active microbiome that plays a vital role in the functioning of your immune system. Consuming the right type of probiotic supplements stimulates the immune system and improves your immune response.

 

Probiotics’ role in allowing you to enjoy a strong immune system

 

In recent years, a wide range of probiotic products have been developed containing bifidobacterium and lactobacillus that are used by the human body to strengthen its defences. It’s important to choose the proper probiotics based on the particular aspect of our health that we want to look after.

The World Health Organisation (WHO) has confirmed that the effects of probiotics are specific to the type of bacteria. As such, not all probiotics are the same, nor do they serve the same purposes or utilise the same mechanisms.

 

newyou., your ally

 

newyou.immune chocolate combines the probiotic Bifidubacterium animalis lactis BPL1 with reishi, the “mushroom of eternal youth” that Asian cultures have been using for millennia to prevent illnesses by activating the body’s own defences.

A powerful combination that will allow you to improve your health and bolster your defences from the ground up and to take care of your microbiota almost without realising it. At breakfast, after your meditation or yoga session, as a snack between meals or in the afternoon… newyou. is the bit of flavour you need at any time of day to strengthen your immune system and face the workday with more energy than ever.
