Why wait to get sick when you can stop it from even starting?
In this article we’ll discuss 3 of our top tips to boost your immune health so you can easily make the transition to cooler temps, still feeling good and full of energy!
Get your zzz’s
This one is obvious, we know, but did you know that a lack of sleep can actually weaken your immune system and put you at risk for colds and flu?
We know how hard it can be to get a good night’s rest in the hustle and bustle of today’s busy life.
Try cutting back on screen time an hour before bed, dim the lights, sip on some calming herbal tea like chamomile or passion flower and inhale some lavender essential oil. By sticking to a consistent bedtime ritual, you’ll soon fall asleep quicker and enjoy more quality sleep.
Amp up your vitamin C intake
We can’t get enough of antioxidants and Vitamin C may just be our favorite of them all!
Vitamin C helps to fight inflammation in the body and fight off free radicals that can weaken the immune system. In fact, studies have shown that several cells of the immune system actually accumulate vitamin C and need it to perform specific tasks.
Don’t take boring capsules though, try our highly absorbent, not to mention delicious, Vitamin C sachets, available in an array of yummy flavors and packed with added vitamins and minerals. Take it every day as maintenance to keep the immune system strong and to prevent colds and flu.
Get your sweat on
When your endorphins are flowing, you’re sure to feel your spirits soar and a smile light up your face, but did you know a good workout can do more than just make you feel good?
Exercise can help to flush bacteria out of the airways and lungs, helping to reduce your risk of colds and flu. Exercise also helps the body better manage stress, which is important since high levels of stress can cause physical illness.
We hope you’ll follow these three tips ASAP so you can get your immune system strong and ready for the chilly season! Don’t let a cold ruin all the fun winter activities you have in store!
