Prepare your immune system for seasonal change

Nutrition & Wellbeing

Supporting your immune system should always be a priority. During times of seasonal change, this is especially important.

Many studies have shown a possible link between seasonal changes and an increase in human genes activity, especially with those involved in the immune system . Whether the season is changing from summer to autumn or winter to spring, the temperature shift challenges the human immune system.

Taking steps to support your immune system before the new season arrives is a smart way to ensure you are feeling your best throughout the entire year.

How the immune system works

Your immune system is composed of several defence layers: the innate immunity that you’re born with, your adaptive immunity that you develop due to your environment, and your first line of defence, your physiological barrier.

The physiological barrier is made of the physical barriers that protect you from the outside environment. This includes your skin, mucous membranes, saliva, tears, intestinal walls and important immune cells located in your gut – everything that works to keep things out of your body. For example, when you get dust in your eye and your eye tears up to flush it out, that is your physical barrier working to keep your eye healthy.

Like every part of your immune system, it’s important to keep your physiological barrier healthy and strong all year long. Below are two great ways to support this first line of defence.

Support your first line of immune defence with…

Vitamins

Vitamins and minerals play an essential role in maintaining basic immune system health. To achieve this, you should eat a healthy diet that includes a variety of fruits and vegetables. You can further add a daily multi-vitamin/multi-mineral supplement to help fill nutritional gaps. These can help give your body any extra vitamin and mineral support it might need to maintain the normal function of your immune system.

A good place to start is with Nutrilite™ Daily , which is a convenient way to help fill a potential nutrition gap with essential vitamins and minerals. If you have kids in need of extra vitamin and mineral support, try Nutrilite™ Chewable Multivitamin , a yummy supplement that you can add to your kids’ balanced diet.

At times of stress or of seasonal change, Nutrilite™ Double X™ provides foundational nutrients to support you. It is a food supplement that provides a balanced combination of 12 essential vitamins, 10 essential minerals and a special blend of 22 plant compounds derived from fruits, vegetables and herbs. Nutrilite™ Double X™ adds variety to your diet by providing botanical elements from all five colour groups: green, white, yellow, red and purple. Each colour group delivers valuable nutrients.

You can also try our new product, Nutrilite™ Balance Within Immunity Support. It contains Vitamins B6 and B9 (folic acid), which contribute to the normal function of the immune system. Additionally, it provides 6 billion lactic acid bacteria of two different strains. And it comes as a pleasant-tasting, fast-dissolving powder, which can be put directly on the tongue – all packed in a convenient stick pack!

Exercise

As always, be sure to keep exercise a part of your daily routine. Whether you prefer quiet strolls, running, weightlifting or something in between – staying active helps flush out bad bacteria in your lungs and airways, which helps prevent certain illnesses1. It also increases blood flow, strengthens antibodies and reduces stress hormones2. Everything you need to stay happy and healthy!
