Well, it's officially that time of year when we need to spruce up our wellness routine. The colder months bring with them a whole new set of rules to adhere to. One rule that is particularly relevant, is to make sure our immune system receives a tune up and regular maintenance. Did you know that our bodies are capable of warding off many illnesses if we implement meaningful healthy lifestyle adjustments? For instance, adding an exercise routine a few days a week can produce an overall improvement of our physical as well as psychological wellbeing.
There are many other components that can aid in enhanced immunity, but today I would like to focus on a few supplements that can be considered. Vitamin C, Vitamin D, Zinc, Elderberry, Echinacea and Goldenseal. Keep in mind we are not physicians and advise you to consult with your physician before taking any supplements, natural, or otherwise.
“Organic foods are richer in nutrients. This means they improve satiety and naturally help regulate body weight…Plants produce antioxidants to protect themselves from pests like insects and to withstand harsh weather. When they’re treated with chemicals such as pesticides, they don’t need to produce as much of their own natural defenses, so the levels are lower.” (p.203)”
