Our daily lives are filled with the possibility of infection from microorganisms and germs, which can lead to sickness and disease. Although there is no way to truly avoid airborne or surface germs, you can do your best to make sure that your immune system is healthy and up for the daily challenge of being human. Eating healthy and making sure your body gets the vitamins and minerals it requires to stay healthy is extremely important, but not everyone can be perfect when it comes to their nutritional intake. Eating the suggested amount of fruits, vegetables, grains, dairy and protein to keep the body strong can be a challenge for many and may have a negative effect on how your immune system functions.
Boosting Your Immune System
Immune support supplements are filled with vitamins, minerals and herbs that promote healthy immune function. They are packed with ingredients that are often lacking in the food we consume daily. For example, garlic extract helps maintain healthy circulation and boosts normal cholesterol and homocysteine levels; elderberry liquid, which can be found in Quantum Elderberry Lozenges (taste like raspberry, yum!) and are high in Proanthocyanidins (known for their antioxidant properties) and Symbiotics Lactoferrin, which helps coordinate the body's immune response. These are only a few supplements available that will boost your immune system. Consulting with your doctor is always the best first step when choosing a supplement that will most sufficiently fit your needs.
Giving your immune system a helping hand through herbal supplements can help keep you in good health all year long.
