RIGHT now I’m obsessed with boosting my immunity. Yes, there’s THAT pandemic, but the flu-and-bugs season is also on its way and we must protect ourselves.
I’ve tried three immunity-boosting products and our Beauty Editor has put some of the new – and very popular – natural deodorants to the test . . .

- Probio7 Immune+, £29.99 from probio7.com – buy now
Probiotics, which boost gut health, are great for immunity as 70 per cent of immune cells are in the gut.
Probio7 Immune+ contains 60 tablets per box, divided between live strains of friendly bacteria, the fibre beta-glucan, and vitamin D.
Clinical tests on adults and the elderly have shown good results.
- Sambucol Immuno Forte Effervescent Tablets, £8.99 from sambucol.co.uk – buy now
Derived from black elderberries, effervescent Sambucol tablets are packed with antioxidants to protect healthy cells and boost immunity.
Pop in some water and the solution tastes amazing.
They are packed with vitamin C and zinc, but contain no sugar, and kids from age four can have them.
Sambucol® Immuno Forte Effervescent Tablets (15) are suitable for 4 years+.
- Everyday Immune Support, £14.95 from provenprobiotics.co.uk – buy now
Urgent-C Everyday Immune Support effervescent sachets from Pro-Ven contain vitamin C, vitamin D, zinc, selenium and beta glucan.
Lovely and fizzy on the tongue.
On sale next month.

- Green People aloe vera and prebiotics deodorant 75ml, £10.50 from greenpeople.co.uk – buy now
Natural and organic. A safe and effective alternative to chemical-based deodorants.
Free from parabens, alcohol and pore-clogging aluminium.
Ninety-three per cent of testers experienced 24 hours of protection.
This was my favourite – ultra-gentle and non-pore clogging. My new go-to.
- Wild Deodorant case plus 3 x 43g (129g) refills, £25 from wearewild.com – buy now
This is a new refillable deodorant company.
Pick your coloured case and choose from five compostable, plastic-free scented refills.
There are no aluminium salts, parabens or phthalates.
It’s a clever idea. But in my chilly bathroom, the refill was too cold and pulled my skin.
- The Natural Deodorant Co orange and bergamot balm 55g, £12.50 from naturaldeoco.com – buy now
There is no plastic on the jars, no aluminum or alcohol.
Scoop some of the orange-smelling balm, warm it in your hands and smear under your arms.
You then need to wash your hands to get rid of the greasy residue. Gorgeous stuff.
