11 Ways To Support Your Immunity During this Season's Flu & Cold Season

We’re getting ready to welcome Flu & Cold season and it is imperative to give our immunity a little boost. We do this using natural concoctions as well as some nutrients that support overall health and immunity. Leading a healthy lifestyle that consists of adequate sleep and rest, movement, stress reduction techniques, and eating whole foods come a long way in prevention, too. This holiday season give yourself permission to rest, rejuvenate and slow down as this change of seasons will almost certainly demand that. Here are some of our favorite ways to help support our immunity during the flu and cold season.

  1. Elderberry Syrup, we’re loving Seattle Elderberry with Honey.

  2. Olive Leaf Extract

  3. Fire Cider: A combo of immunity supporting ingredients including: apple cider vinegar, garlic, horseradish, ginger, onions and more!

  4. Turmeric & Ginger (Whole Food Source, Ground Spices or Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils)
