When people start talking about immunity it’s generally getting closer to winter as we try to fight off germs invading our bodies and making us sick.
It’s easy to feel that this is the best time to take immunity boosting shots or load up with Vitamin C – but we need immunity year round. So how do we boost or strengthen our immune system throughout the year to reduce our vulnerability to infection?
The answer is natural.
It takes a little more than a ‘get well tonic’ but a few lifestyle strategies that make the most of nature and natural ingredients can make a big difference. You function better and have a higher functioning immune system when you choose a healthy lifestyle.
Chances are you’re already doing some important things for your health and immune system. If you want to enhance your healthy lifestyle, some key strategies include:
Basically, think of your immune system like an army, it marches on its stomach! And those who are poorly nourished are more vulnerable to infections.
So it’s important to try to meet the recommended daily minimums for fruit (two serves a day) and vegetables (five a day) to ensure you are getting all the antioxidants and variety of minerals necessary for a healthy immune system.
However, life isn’t perfect. Some days you’re simply too busy for an hour’s exercise, or it can be difficult to eat the recommended amounts of fruit and veg. These are the times you can benefit from an immune wellness shot, especially one packed with Vitamin C – one of the best immunity boosters around.
Vitamin C is proven to reduce the length of time of cold symptoms, and to protect you against free radical damage from pollutants and other environmental contaminants.
Combine it with honey and you have a simple, healthy drink to give your immune system a boost and more; the honey can offer resistance to bacterial infection and contains important minerals such as copper, iron and zinc.
If that sounds to you like a shot of wellness, you’re right. Newly launched honey and Vitamin C wellness shot IMMUNE+ is a mega dose of Vitamin C mixed with soothing Manuka Honey. If you want to boost your immunity year round, it’s a great place to start.
