With kids back in school, and the weather turning cooler, immune systems are working
on overdrive to keep up the body’s defenses. Give yourself and those you love a
hand with a few of these tips:
Minimize and manage stress:
While the fast pace of the 21st century day may prove this to be challenging, stress wreaks havoc on an immune system. To help deal with the harmful effects of stress, practice relaxation techniques, such as yoga, prayer or deep breathing exercises. Laughter can also melt away stress and bring up endorphin levels
Just like every other part of the body, the immune system relies on being well-rested to function at maximum capacity. A consistent sleep schedule will help the entire body resist attacks.
While staying indoors during colder months may be instinctive, the stale, indoor air traps multiple immune system attackers. Putting on your favorite fall sweater and taking a brisk walk in the fresh outdoor air aids the body in multiple ways.
"Eat the rainbow":
Colorful fresh whole fruits and vegetables are packed full of naturally-occurring antioxidants and other beneficial nutrients. In fact, it has been found that the more intense the color of the fruit or vegetable, the more potent the antioxidants it contains. Antioxidants are vital in maintaining a body's defense system.
Supplement your diet for increased immune support:
We know that B Vitamins, like those in our high potency B-12 Plus - B12, B6, B9 (Folic Acid) Formula - are very important for managing the harmful effects of stress and maintaining a healthy immune system. The unique blend of powerful herbs Echinacea and Goldenseal, such as in our Defense Formula - has been widely known for centuries to stimulate the body's immune-boosting properties. Additionally, our gentle-to- the-stomach Buffered Vitamin C works as an immune system nutrient and a potent free-radical fighter.
