Immune boosting nutrients

Winter is here, and cold and flu season has well and truly arrived!

Here are my top three picks to keep you healthy this season:

Daily Vitamin C – the humble vitamin C offers a powerhouse of immune support & protects us from inflammation. It also allows us to cope better with stress by breaking down our stress hormones, which if left unchecked damage our immunity. Vitamin C supplements come in powder & tablet form as well as chewables for kids

Echinacea – a must in your winter arsenal. Echinacea boosts your immune system, fights bacteria and virus and protects you from picking up winter bugs. It comes in tablet, liquid and tea form.

Zinc –this is another must have in your winter health kit. Zinc is involved in immune system processes, wound healing and skin health. Zinc can greatly reduce the duration and severity of colds, and is available in tablet and liquid form.
