Are you prepared for Winter?
Updated: Dec 15, 2022
November is almost with us, but the weather is still very warm, making us wonder when will it finally change. As in the past years, our weather will most probably change overnight and take us by surprise. That normally means a rise in common colds and influenza as we have been warned by the health authorities. Whilst some opt for the flu jabs, which will still not cover one from the common colds, others prefer a more natural approach.
Whether you take the flu jab or not, it is important to give your health a boost. I recommend the following:
Eat plenty of fruit and vegetables, variety is key to ensure you are taking all necessary nutrients. Eating seasonal is important as nature always provides what we need at the given time.
Cut down on refined carbohydrates and sugars. These are the comfort food for many, but they are bad news for our bodies, from creating havoc in our digestive system to increasing stress and lowering our immune system. Snack on fruit and nuts rather than crisps, pastries and sweets.
Find time to exercise. Walking, jogging, cycling, swimming, playing sports or going to a gym all have great benefits.
Supplement with important nutrients such as Vitamin D, Probiotics and Beta Glucan. Have a look at our Immune enhancing products and see what bests suits your needs.
As I have said many times, the fact that we need to supplement with Vitamin D is becoming more and more evident as study after study are finding that what we once knew about this vitamin is all in the past. With lifestyle changes of spending more time indoors and using sun block when out in the sun we are all being deprived of this very important nutrient.
Why oral sprays?
Today we understand that traditional tablet and capsule supplementation relies upon a digestive process that has evolved exclusively for food intake, and absorption cannot be universally guaranteed. Add to this, the dramatic increase in digestive malabsorption issues such as IBS, Crohn’s and coeliac disease and an effective alternative delivery mechanism has become essential.
Traditional tablets and capsules don’t suit everyone. Some of us, particularly children and the elderly, can find them difficult to swallow.
An intra-oral spray delivers an active ingredient directly into the bloodstream rather than relying on primary processing by the digestive system.
It produces a spray of perfectly balanced micro-sized droplets delivered into the mouth. The tiny droplets absorb quickly, providing fast nutrient uptake – the next generation of vitamin supplementation.
