Let me be extremely honest for a second and say that I am terrible when it comes to taking vitamins. I always start out with the best of intentions then fail dismally. The fact however is that as I get older I’ve come to realise the importance of supplementing my body correctly to get it to perform at its optimum levels. The same holds true for my boys. Ashton (15) and Skylar (11) are healthy boys who are super active. Despite being healthy and living a healthy lifestyle, the change of season seems to have its effect.
With the change of season very much upon us and Autumn feeling a lot more like winter already, it is definitely time to Boost Your Immunity.
Ways to strengthen your immune system
Adopting a healthy lifestyle is the first line of defense to keep your immune system strong and healthy. The rules are pretty simple
- Maintain a healthy weight.
- Increase your consumption of fruits and veggies.
- Exercise regularly.
- Drink alcohol in moderation.
- Adequate sleep is essential.
- Don’t smoke.
- Wash hands regularly.
- Be mindful of your stress levels.
While all of the above is an excellent way to strengthen your immune system, there’s one more step that will help you boost your immunity throughout the seasons.
Supplements to Boost Your Immunity
So this is where good old faithful vitamin C comes into play. Vitamin C plays an important role in a number of bodily functions and is a powerful antioxidant which helps support our immune systems. While we get Vitamin C from the food we eat, taking vitamins ensures we get our daily dosage. Recent research has shown that Echinacea also offers immune support and counteracts the aging effect of free radicals on the body.
Seeing as we are benefiting from using the GNC Immune Boosting range, I thought it would only be fair if we shared the love. So we are giving 1 lucky person a hamper worth R900 to help @BoostYourImmunity.
