3 Actions To Take Today

  1. Assess Diet - Up your intake of fruits, vegetables and protein, and reduce junk food and sugar consumption (including going easy on things that turn to sugar like white bread, pasta, potatoes, refined white carbs and alcohol). Try Oats for breakfast topped with zinc rich nuts or seeds and fruit. It keeps you fuller and satisfied longer helping prevent resorting to junk food and sugar later in the day. Iron-rich foods such as lentils and green leafy vegetables are good sources of iron, which supports a healthy immune system.
  2. SUPPLEMENT - Bee propolis has natural antibiotic and antiviral properties and doesn’t over stimulate the immune system. Black elderberry contains Vitamin C and other phytonutrients which have anti-inflammatory, antiviral and antioxidant actions and has been shown in studies to reduce the number of sick days. Acerola cherry is an extremely rich and concentrated source of vitamin c and antioxidants. Bee Prepared Immune Formulas contain concentrated amounts of all of the unique and beneficial nutrients above and more, and are vegetarian, all natural and suitable for most ages.
  3. REST - It’s easy to ensure your immune system is fighting fit by eating well, getting adequate exercise, staying well rested & hydrated and reducing sugar and refined carbohydrates which tax the immune system by feeding bacterial growth and contributing to inflammation in the body.
