Fuel Your Body and Mind with a Healthy Fooditude

Stay well and load up on natural immunity boosters!

Winter is a season known for many things- blizzards, snow angels, gifts, cold temperatures, hot chocolate, school closings, and sickness. Not to sound pessimistic, but for many of us, it’s just a matter of time before the coughs, sneezes, chills, runny noses, fevers, and sore throats manage to get the best of us.

Keeping healthy is important and it isn’t until we fall ill that we realize just how important our immune system is. Unable to be seen by the naked eye, the immune system never stops working. We may take vacations, but our immune system doesn’t. That said, it’s important to give your immune system exactly what it needs in order to work at peak performance.

Exercise, rest and good nutrition are all vital to keeping your defenses working. There are several nutrients that assist your immune system in fighting off foreign invaders. They are protein, zinc, selenium and vitamins A, C and E. By eating a well-balanced diet, you can ensure adequate intake of all these nutrients and thus, a working immune system.
