Support your immunity through the winter months

The winter season also means germ season, which can lead to pesky colds that leave you feeling miserable. Help support your immunity through these five nutrients:

Probiotics

Probiotics are found naturally in yogurt, which will give your kids the support they need to help their natural defenses against the challenges of the cold season and occasional digestive upset. 

Multivitamins

Vitamins A & C and zinc can help the immune system fight off infections.

Omega-3s

Part of the way to combat recurrent respiratory infections is with these essential fatty acids. 

Garlic

This member of the onion family stimulates the production of infection-fighting white cells and reduces the build-up of free radicals in the bloodstream.

Bioflavonoids

These phytonutrients protect body cells from environmental pollutants. Strive for at least six servings of a variety of fruits and vegetables to ensure you get the bioflavonoids your body needs.
