Vitamins and Supplements
Help your body’s natural defences this spring.
It's spring! Finally we can enjoy the beautiful weather and the longer days. But spring is the season of allergies and the ones suffering from them can't enjoy it that much.
These people's immune system responds to their allergic reaction as though they have a viral infection, causing the symptoms of a bad cold. And it can go on for months.
So is it possible to boost your immune system to make it respond differently? There's a lot we don't yet know about the complexity of the immune response but it does seem as though your lifestyle can play a part. And simple healthy living could be a good first line of defence.
Make sure you get enough sleep
Do at least a little exercise every day
Give up smoking – or at least cut down
Moderate your alcohol intake
Eat a balanced diet including plenty of vegetables, fruit and whole grains
A balanced diet should contain all the nutrition your body needs, but to help fill in any gaps, you could introduce echinacea, vitamine E, garlic, and vitamin B into your diet.
Echinacea can be used to treat common cold symptoms, and it may contribute to the proper function of the defensive system of the body. Garlic is also thought to help contribute to the normal immune function. Both of these natural ingredients are found in NUTRILITETM Echinacea Plus (combines three distinct forms of echinacea using fresh plants and roots harvested at their prime and carefully processed) and NUTRILITE Garlic tablets (with a fresh peppermint flavour!).
Vitamin E contributes to the protection of cells from oxidative stress. A balanced diet should give us enough, but you can also supplement it with NUTRILITE Lecithin-E. And in case you think your diet may be lacking in Vitamin B, the NUTRILITE brand* has created a formula that provides seven essential B vitamins, also in convenient tablet form: the Vitamini B Complex.
