This winter has been awful for bugs, hasn’t it? I usually get little colds that last around a week but come to the end of October, I got a flu that really knocked me for 6. I’m not even sure I got fully over it 6 weeks later when I caught yet another virus. It seemed to be a snowball effect that just kept on rolling and come the new year, I had managed to shake the worst of it off, but some symptoms were still lingering.
I needed something to help me kick the winter bugs for once and for all.
I knew I needed something else to give my immune system a boost and when I received some BioCare Immune Intensive to try out, it couldn’t have come at a better time. If anything needed an intensive boost, it was my immune system!

I have been taking my immune support with my morning coffee and breakfast. You need to take it food so it was a perfect time before I forgot. Day 1 I tried it with water alone and wasn’t too keen on the taste or texture. It may have been me, but I found it took a while to be fully mixed. Since then, I have been taking it in some sugar-free diluted squash, apple and blackcurrant, and it is much more palatable.
I have to admit, when trying things like this, I always struggle to pinpoint any benefits. The pack is a 7-day Immune Intensive. So I thought after a week I would be able to notice some difference. But it wasn’t until I took a break at the end of the 7 days that I realised, I just hadn’t noticed the benefits.
I’m not too sure what you should be expecting, so I may be wrong, but I actually started to feel more like me! Not just viruses and winter bugs. I wouldn’t go as far as saying it gave me an energy boost, but it definitely gave me a little something extra day to day.
I had written this post after week one and before week two, as you can see. After a couple of days not taking the Immune Intensive, I developed some cold-like symptoms and started the second pack asap. Whilst it didn’t cure the cold – not that I expected it to – personally I feel it helped minimise the effects and it was pretty much over before it started.
At £16.45 for a 7-day pack, BioCare Immune Intensive certainly boasts some excellent benefits and for someone like myself who has been fighting off bug after bug, it was something my body needed. I am hoping that after taking the second pack, I will be in a healthier place to help keep any future illnesses at bay or even just reduce the impact of them on my system.
