Onken super kefir

Emmi has expanded its Onken big pot lineup with the launch of a new range of Super Kefir yoghurt pots.

Launching into Tesco and Co-op stores nationally on 5 July, the kefir pots will be available in Strawberry & Pomegranate and Lemon & Ginger flavoured variants which contained 14 “unique” live culture varieties, the supplier said.

The NPD (rsp: £1.50/350g pot) “boosted the immune system”, Emmi claimed, thanks to its use of vitamins B6 and B12. It will later be rolled out in Asda and Ocado in August, with the launch supported by a through the line marketing campaign across summer and autumn, featuring a new TV and editorial advert.

Onken would further promote the launch online through a host of influencer and brand partnerships, Emmi said.

“We know there’s been a huge shift in health trends over the past year, with more and more people taking a greater interest in improving their immunity as a result of the pandemic,” said Emmi UK head of marketing Laura Graham.

“We wanted to champion centuries-old super fruits in our bold new flavour pairings, and show that functional yoghurts are not just terrific for your body – they’re tasty too. These new 350g pots are perfect for those looking to show their immune system some TLC.”

Foods and Beverages with Immunity Boosting and Gut Health Claims Soar to $59 Billion

  • June 9, 2021

ROCKVILLE, Md., June 9, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — The U.S. food and beverage industry has been impacted heavily by COVID-19. In 2020 especially, more people looked to improve their health and boost immunity to prevent or lessen the severity of illness. Consumers are buying more supplements or vitamins to protect their immune system due to COVID-19, and some are also buying food and beverage products to boost their immune systems. 2020 turned out to be a banner year: the market for packaged foods and beverages with claims for gut health or immunity grew more than 50%, pushing sales to $59 billion, as reported by Packaged Facts’ new report Immunity Boosting Foods: Gut Health & General Immunity Improvement. Packaged food and beverage products in the scope of this report include those with prebiotics, probiotics, high fiber claims, and “superfood” claims such as “high in antioxidants” or “added vitamins/minerals” that may be beneficial for immunity or gut health.

Packaged Facts projects that sales in this market will decelerate over the next five years, although the pandemic boom in 2020 and 2021 will affect the market for years to come.

More than two-fifths of consumers report that because of the coronavirus, they are buying food and beverages products to protect their immune systems more, and these consumers are also somewhat more likely than average to express greater concerns about the pandemic and to have experienced more negative personal effects.

Additionally, the pandemic has led to more time spent cooking at home. Extra time in the kitchen has combined with increased interest in gut health to give rise to more recipes and cookbooks focused on the GI tract. Nonetheless, functional packaged foods that may improve gut health or immunity are an especially convenient way for consumers. Some fermented products that are naturally probiotic have experienced fast sales gains in the last year, such as yogurt, kombucha, kefir, and sauerkraut. Other products with ingredients that may provide gut health or immunity benefits continue to be released, such as sodas, nutrition bars, enhanced waters, and “super juices.”

For more information see the Immunity Boosting Foods: Gut Health & General Immunity Improvement report page. This report analyzes current retail sales, projects future sales, and examines trends across the U.S. market for functional foods and beverages with gut health or immunity claims, considering the current and longer-term impacts of the coronavirus pandemic.

Particular attention is dedicated to the market impact of e-commerce, the coronavirus pandemic, and better-for-you trends.

Immunity boosting: Healthy drinks that keep you hydrated and boost immunity

Immunity boosting: Healthy drinks that keep you hydrated and boost immunity

  • June 6, 2021
We all know we’re supposed to hydrate, especially during the summer. Your body can excrete up to ten litres of water in a day. Surely, ten litres is a lot to drink! Here’s the thing though, the daily recommended water intake is about 1.5-2 litres everyday. Our bodies get a lot of their water content during digestion by breaking down the food we eat. While we make sure to cook our food to appeal to our taste buds, there are ways we can make our water intake tasty as well. Dimple Jangda, Ayurvedic Health coach, suggests a few things that can really help your body

The Prana Immunity Booster drink is a must have this summer. Here’s how you can make it:

Heat 1 teaspoon of organic ghee in a small pan. Add in a pinch of cinnamon, a pinch of turmeric, 1 cardamom, 1 clove, freshly grated ginger and a pinch of pepper. Saute this for a minute till the aromatic herbs blend in with the ghee. Add in a glass of water and boil it well. Once ready, enjoy this immunity booster!

This drink protects your body from the damage of free radicals, strengthens your immune response to antigens and can clear up congestion in the nasal and throat area.
Ayurveda stresses upon the importance of ghee and for good reason. Consuming ghee not only builds up better gut and immune health, but can also cleanse the lungs. It is highly beneficial for everyone to consume 1 teaspoon of ghee everyday.

Let’s also understand the current covid strain which causes symptoms such as diarrhea, abdominal pain, stomach issues, conjunctivitis, rashes all over the body and

discolouration of the arms and legs. It’s important to consume tender coconut water which helps in reducing these symptoms which are caused due to a pitta imbalance.

Sabja seeds soaked in water overnight is highly beneficial in reducing pitta imbalance and acclimatising to the summer heat.

An alternative drink is The Virgin Toddy created by Dimple. This is a great replacement for the sugary drinks sold in the market, that cause a spike in your blood sugar levels and then a sudden drop, creating waves of tiredness. Here’s what you’ll need:

A few slices of tangerine

1 cinnamon stick

1 clove

Half tsp teaspoon grated ginger

Pinch of ground pepper

Fresh apple juice to taste

Here’s how you’ll make it:

Boil the herbs with 200 ml of water till the water changes colour and the aroma of the herbs fill the air. Let the mixture cool and then strain out the herbs from the water. Add in the apple juice as per your taste and drop in your tangerine slices for a hint of citrus. Once you try this drink, you’ll be sure to love it. Having no added sugar, it keeps your blood sugar level stable yet provides you with a sweet taste to boost your energy levels with. This drink has powerful antiviral and antibacterial properties.

It is high in antioxidants and can fight off infections. These recipes are proof that choosing more healthy options in your day to day life does not mean compromising on taste and experience. By realising the different properties of foods, it is easy to learn how to marry flavours to provide a nutrient dense yet flavourful meal or drink.

Guide To Boosting Immunity Through Pranayama Or Breathing Exercises

Guide To Boosting Immunity Through Pranayama Or Breathing Exercises

  • May 25, 2021

In the light of the second wave of COVID-19 that we are witnessing, it is no secret that the resilience of our immune system relies heavily on the functioning of our respiratory system. Health Coach and Yoga Expert Shreya Sethi says, “Many have seen the first hand effects of prone breathing, helping blood-oxygen levels increase. The most obvious area of benefit from pranayama practices is the respiratory system: Breathing control techniques have been shown to improve lung function in both healthy people and patients with chronic bronchitis and asthma. Pranayama also reduces psychological stress, thus boosting immune function.”

What Happens When We Are Under Physical Or Psychological Stress?

 breathing exercises

Image: Shutterstock

Under stress, the body’s sympathetic nervous system is triggered, and we switch into ‘survival mode’ or ‘fight or flight mode’. This mode brings with it increased heart rate to send more blood rushing to the muscles to prepare the body for fight or flight. Stress hormone production increases during this time too. Sethi says, “This mode expends so much of our bodily resources that we feel fatigued and drained even if we haven’t done any physical exercise. This, overtime, weakens our immune system immensely.”

But, there is some good news! We have the capability of initiating the opposite response that is induced by stress. Sethi explains, “For this, we need to tweak and use some behavioral strategies like meditation and slow breathing. When the relaxation response is activated, our sympathetic nervous system is overridden by the parasympathetic nervous system. These relaxation techniques might be harder to practise in the beginning, but we need to make this a habit so our body and mind understands its importance.”

Research around the effects of yogic breathing practices, or pranayama, explores the significant implications of this breath-body-mind relationship. In one of the researches, led by William Bushell, PhD, a biophysical/medical anthropologist at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, found that pranayama and meditation affect the anti-stress and anti-inflammatory properties in the body.

So, which pranayams or breathing techniques should you practise to boost your immune system? Sethi lists a few along with the complete steps for each.

Abdominal Breathing Or Diaphragmatic Breathing

• Sit in a comfortable position with your back straight or lie on your back on any flat surface.
• Relax your shoulders, put one hand on your chest and the other hand on your abdomen.
• Breathe in through your nose for about 4 seconds. You should experience the air moving through your nostrils into your abdomen, making your abdomen rise and expand. During this type of breathing, make sure your abdomen is moving outward while your chest remains relatively still.
• Breathe out from your nose for 4 seconds. During this exhalation, make sure your abdomen moves inward and deflates while your chest remains relatively still.
• Repeat for at least 20 breaths.

Anuloma Viloma Or Alternate Nostril Breathing

• Sit in a comfortable position with your legs crossed and back straight. Place your left hand on your left knee and lift your right hand up toward your nose.
• Exhale completely and then use your right thumb to close your right nostril. Inhale completely through your left nostril in 4 slow counts and then close the left nostril with your fingers.
• Open the right nostril and exhale through this side in 6 slow counts. Now again, inhale through the same side (right nostril) for 4 counts and then close this nostril.
• Open the left nostril and exhale through the left side for 6 slow counts.
• This is one cycle. Complete 6 cycles of this breathing exercise.

Bhramri Or Bee Breathing

• Sit up straight in a quiet, well-ventilated corner. Keep your eyes closed for some time. Observe the sensations in the body and the quietness within.
• Place your index fingers on your ears. There is a cartilage between your cheek and ear. Place your index fingers on the cartilage.
• Take a deep breath in and as you breathe out, gently press the cartilage. You can keep the cartilage pressed or press it in and out with your fingers while making a loud humming sound like a bee.
• You can also make a low-pitched sound but it is a good idea to make a high-pitched one for better results. Try to sustain the exhalation for as long as you can (aim for 20 seconds at least)
• Breathe in again and continue the same 3-4 times.

Immune Boosting Foods To Help You Enjoy Your Summer

  • May 20, 2021

In a post-pandemic world we still want to ensure our health is a priority and one simple step to do so is by eating well. Aside from constant hand-washing, quarantining, sleeping eight hours a night, reducing stress, exercise, and getting enough vitamin D, the foods we eat can boost our immune system. Foods like oranges that are high in vitamin C or yogurt with probiotics can increase our chances of staying healthy post lockdown. Here are eight foods to add to your diet and support your immune system so you can enjoy your summer after a year of quarantine.

Ginger is usually used in Southeast Asian dishes but it’s one of the healthiest spices though the strong flavor may be an acquired taste. You can use ginger in many ways: fresh, dried, powdered, oil, or juice. Ginger is high in antioxidants and has been used to fight the flu and common cold. Slice up some ginger and add it to boiling water. Let it sit for about 10 minutes then add in some honey and lemon. Drink it as a tea to reap those benefits. It’s also commonly used in kombucha and if you’re indulging in sushi make sure you’re eating the raw ginger slices.

Broccoli is probably one of those vegetables that we all hated as kids but have learned to love as an adult. It’s a cruciferous veggie which means it may cause a bit of gas but it’s a nutritional powerhouse full of vitamins, minerals, fiber, and antioxidants. In fact, one cup of raw broccoli has 135 percent of the recommended daily intake of vitamin C. This vegetable plays an important role in both the prevention and treatment of various illnesses. Enjoy it roasted, chopped in your salad, or sautéed in a stir fry.

Yogurt is high in protein and it also contains good bacteria which can help fight off infection in the body. When buying yogurt, make sure it contains Bifidobacteria and Lactobacillus, these bacteria will reduce your likelihood of contracting illness. Aside from these probiotics, yogurt has magnesium, selenium, and zinc for immune health. Mix some yogurt in with your fruit or oatmeal in the mornings or add it to a smoothie.

Citrus Fruits

Citrus fruits are sweet, brightly colored, and full of vitamin C. These fruits include grapefruits, lemons, limes, oranges, and even tomatoes. These foods will certainly boost your immunity but they are also high in fiber and low in calories. Add slices of lemon to your water to keep you hydrated all day long. Word of caution: pick whole fruits as opposed to fruit juice. Fruit juice usually has added sugar which can actually weaken your immunity.

The ancient Greek physician Hippocrates, aka the “Father of Western Medicine”, used to prescribe garlic to treat several medical conditions. To this day, many studies have shown that garlic has many health benefits because of the sulfur compounds that form when garlic is chopped or crushed. It is high in antioxidants and detoxifies the body from heavy metals in the bloodstream. Add garlic to any dish or chop it up and make a tea which may be an acquired taste but the benefits make it worth it.

Almonds are one of the most popular nuts and while we love the roasted and salted kind, the healthiest way to eat it is raw. They are highly nutritious and high in antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals. The antioxidants in almonds mainly come from the brown layer of the skin. For this reason, blanched almonds – those with the skin removed – are not the best choice if you want to receive those health benefits. Add almonds to your morning oatmeal, eat them as a snack, or add them to your smoothies.

Turmeric is one of the most powerful foods in existence. Turmeric has been used in India for thousands and years as a spice and medicinal herb. Why is turmeric so magical? Curcumin. This is the main active ingredient in turmeric and is a strong antioxidant with anti-inflammatory qualities. If you are buying turmeric supplements, look for bottles that include curcumin. You can also add it to smoothies, tea, and soup.

Green Tea

Green tea is one of the healthiest drinks and though it does contain some caffeine it’s much less than what’s found in coffee. It’s rich in polyphenols which reduce inflammation and it contains a catechin called epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG), one of the most powerful compounds in green tea that helps with fighting disease. Try replacing your morning coffee with some green tea, add it to smoothies, sip on it throughout the day with some freshly squeezed lemon. Matcha is another green tea that’s popular and is commonly available hot or cold with milk.

Hence, you have to pay attention to probiotic supplements in the absence of fermented food items.
  • Limit your sugar intake: Both salt and sugar intake must be limited. Emergent research studies reveal that refined carbs and sugars contribute to obesity and other diseases. According to Dennis Begos, if you want to keep your immune system working, you must limit these ingredients. Hence, your sugar level and pressure will be in place.

Moreover, you have to engage in physical exercise and keep yourself hydrated. Try to manage your anxiety level and choose your supplements wisely.
