It’s never been more important than right now to practice self-care and keep yourself as protected as possible. Here are some ways to strengthen immunity and keep your family healthy and well from the inside out.
Did you know that at least 70% of our immune system is located in the digestive tract? You also may not realize that everyday factors like stress, an unhealthy diet, and even just normal aging can affect the balance of bacteria in your gut—which can impact the health of your whole body. Probiotics are a great way to keep that gut healthy. Renew Life Extra Care Probiotics feature a key probiotic strain called b. lactis bi-04tm that is also known to support respiratory health.
Inadequate nutrition is a common cause of a weakened immune system, so supporting optimal immune function begins with making sure we consume the essential vitamins, minerals, and other key nutrients necessary for immune health. In a perfect world, we would all get the good stuff our bodies needed from our daily diet. However, because the standard American diet falls short in many ways, taking a daily multivitamin is a great way to help fill in the gaps and make sure your body—including your immune system—gets the support it requires. What you need is a multivitamin that contains all the essential vitamins, minerals, and other important nutrients. Rainbow Light women’s one, men’s one and kids one –are great options because they provide vitamin c and d, as well as zinc and selenium. They are also vegetarian, gluten-free and easy to digest.
It provides a powerful way to support immune system health with a high potency vitamin c and an excellent source of zinc along with 3 targeted blends for overall immune support. Vitamin c is an essential antioxidant that is perhaps one of the most well-known nutrients for supporting immune health. Counter Attack contains a powerful herbal complex with things such as echinacea, Chinese licorice, peppermint and zinc, which of course is an antioxidant, and plays a significant role in supporting the immune system. In fact, inadequate zinc status may impair normal immune function.
This is something for the stress that can take a toll on our bodies. Magnesium supports many of your body’s processes for general health. However, it also can help you relax and relieve stress. Natural Vitality Calm comes in a powder for hot or cold drinks, and in capsules and gummies - so there are lots of options to get the proper amount of magnesium.
Don’t forget to also take care of yourself by getting exercise; drink plenty of water (at least half our body weight in ounces are recommended) and plenty of rest.
