Give Your Immune System the Gift of Good Nutrition


Give Your Immune System
the Gift of Good Nutrition

by our friends at http://www.reliv.com

‘Tis the season for colds and flu. With all
the family gatherings and indoor activities,
viruses have more opportunities to be passed
around. Taking care of yourself can make the
difference between enjoying the festivities or
simply enduring them.

A strong immune system is the key. Yet your
immune system can get tired from overworking
to make up for poor health habits and lack of good nutrition. As a
result, immune cells can lose some of their protective effects.
Even marginal nutrient (and micronutrient) deficiencies can weaken your
immune system. You may not have obvious symptoms when you’re deficient,
but a deficiency can affect your body’s ability to ward off disease
and infections.

Start this cold and flu season off strong. Research shows physical activity
can protect against colds. One study found people who exercised five or
more days per week were about half as likely to get a cold as those who
exercised less.

Other lifestyle factors are essential to staying healthy this winter too.
Get enough sleep. Enrich your diet with plenty of fruits, vegetables and
fiber. Seek comfort in immune boosters like mushrooms, garlic and warm
chicken soup — which scientists have proven really does work against
cold and flu.

Then ramp up your protection even more with Relìv. Our products offer
balanced nutrition with antioxidants and other nutrients to support your
immune system so you can stay healthier this winter. Because the gift of
good health is the best gift of all.

To Your Health,
Dr. Carl W. Hastings
