Immunity Support & Function: Supplement Protocol
Just like so many other areas of our health, our immune system has its own unique set of needs and requirements to function properly and provide optimal support and prevention throughout the year. Although it is nearly impossible to guarantee that we won’t be susceptible to a specific germ, virus, or illness, we can take preventative measures to do the best we can to be prepared. When it comes to germs and viruses, there are several things that we need to consider in addition to just taking supplements or medications.
Washing hands, sanitizing surfaces in our homes and workplaces, being mindful of passing and receiving germs with others, getting adequate rest, drinking plenty of water, exercising regularly, eating a nutrient-rich whole foods diet, reducing stress and other daily choices can be powerful tools in living a life focused on REAL HEALTH. These practices also help our body to remain strong, well-fueled, and more capable of fighting off unwanted sicknesses.
In addition to the practical applications listed above, we have found through more than 45 years of research and lab testing that keeping your nutrient levels within optimal ranges is the most effective way to prevent illness and maintain health. We also know that there are certain vitamins and nutrients that support the various systems, such as our immune system.
