Fall is in the air. Cooler weather and the kids back in school signals the welcome change. But for some, this season brings its own set of challenges. Fall allergies and the start of cold and flu season often come with the changing weather. How can we stay healthy and prepare for these transitions? One way is to be proactive and start early to keep your immune system in top shape with these key support products.
Take Multivitamin & Probiotics Daily.
Everyone in the family, kids to adults, should be taking a high quality multivitamin to ensure they are getting the vital nutrients needed for overall health. Be sure to choose formulas without unnecessary ingredients like artificial colors, flavors or sweeteners.
Probiotics are the good bacteria in the intestinal tract. They help support overall immune health, and help keep bad bacteria and viruses from taking hold in the body. Probiotic bacteria are found in yogurt and kefir, as well as in concentrated supplement form.
Bolster Immune Support.
Don’t wait until you get sick, stock up now on formulas to support and balance your immune system. Key herbs and nutrients include echinacea, elderberry, vitamin C, vitamin D and zinc. Many good formulas exist that include herbs and nutrients known to support immunity and to alleviate symptoms, including respiratory challenges. And keep support formulas, such as herbal throat syrups or lozenges, on hand to soothe the throat during these transitional times.
Keep Congestion Away.
In the Fall, the changing seasons can bring both allergies and colds. To keep congestion in check, utilize expectorant herbs for the chest, and nasal cleansing for the sinus passages.
Singularly or in combination, there are numerous natural products to boost your body's immunity and maintain good health so you can stay well during the changing season!
