I feel like November is the true beginning of cold and flu season, so I wanted to write about some of our favorite immune boosters that can help you through. Prevention is truly worth a pound of cure, so it’s a good idea to work on keeping yourself healthy while you’re still well.
The number one that I’d recommend for both prevention and if you do happen to get sick is Irwin Naturals Immuno Shield. It’s an amazing mix of different antibacterial, antiviral, and immune-boosting supplements. It can be taken preventatively by taking one or two a day, but where it really shines it when you start to feel like you’re coming down with something. Taking a higher dose at the very first signs of illness really makes a difference. I’ve had numerous times where I started to feel sick in the evening, and I’d take 4 softgels right then and then another 4 before bed. It really works, because the majority of the time I would wake up feeling fine the next day, thankfully. I HATE being sick. We all take Immuno Shield at the store. It really does help. Plus, it’s 25% off this month, so it’ a good idea to stock up now.
I’ll link to a few other fantastic products for the immune system below which we’ve written articles on- click on the link for more information. I’m working on trying to keep our newsletters a little shorter- though I’m not having an easy time of it, haha!
Olive leaf is also great for the immune system, plus it lowers blood pressure.
Aged garlic extract is wonderful for the immune system, and also helps with cardiovascular health as well as lowering blood pressure.
Elderberry extract, also known as Sambucus, is an amazing antiviral, particularly against the flu. We have a new elderberry extract that we recommend- Nature’s Answer Sambucus. It’s the highest potency elderberry available. Elderberry is also safe for both kids and adults.
This is a helpful article for immune boosters that are safe for kids.
Quercetin is a great natural antihistamine that can also help with boosting the immune system, particularly for athletes.
Probiotics are great for both digestion and boosting the immune system. They’re especially useful for kids in preventing respiratory infections.
This is a nice article that focuses on several different immune boosting supplements, particularly Vitamin D and mushroom extracts like beta glucan and AHCC.
