It’s almost time for the kids to go back to school, which means flu season is just around the corner. Keep you and your family healthy this winter by making simple adjustments to your diets and adding a vitamin supplement to ensure proper nutrition.
Now is the time to make the switch to a healthier, antioxidant-rich lifestyle. Don’t wait until the flu season hits – get the body healthy and ready to fight off anything that might come its way.
Increase fruits and vegetables
It’s true what they say: an apple a day really can keep the doctor away. Most Americans do not get adequate amounts of fruits and vegetables in their diets. To make sure your family is getting enough, focus meals around vegetables and replace you child’s fruit-flavored junk-food snack with real fruit.
People generally eat fewer fruits and vegetables in the winter, and this is a habit to break if you’re looking to boost your immune system. If something isn’t in season, it’s okay to use frozen fruits and vegetables. They are flash-frozen, so in many cases they have even more of the nutrients as “fresh” fruits and vegetables that have been picked, shipped and have been sitting on the shelf for a while.
Remember your vitamins
Even if you change your diet, it’s important to take a vitamin supplement to ensure proper nutrition if you’re really looking to stay healthy. One excellent option to boost your immunity is Super C22 by Dr. Newton’s Naturals.
It contains enough antioxidants to support immune function, neutralize free radicals, restore energy and even reduce stress. Supplements are essential because even if you are getting the recommended amounts of fruits and vegetables, you’re likely only getting enough vitamins and minerals to avoid a deficiency. The body needs more to prevent sickness.
Get enough sleep
Winter can be a stressful time, and many miss sleep over everyday stresses and busy schedules. However, the body needs adequate sleep in order to regenerate cells for proper immune function. Kids especially need enough sleep, or else they run a much higher risk of getting sick.
Take a supplement, sleep more soundly and wash your hands often and you’ll have a much healthier winter than you would otherwise. Don’t let the flu bring you down this season.
