As the temperatures start to cool down and many people begin spending more time indoors, the risks of catching germs increase. Therefore, this is an excellent time of the year to adjust your habits for the sake of prevention in the coming months.
Here are some early fall tips for boosting your immune system and staying healthy.
Adjust Your Diet
With summer barbecues and vacations in the rear-view mirror, the early days of fall are a good time to start rethinking how you eat. Focus your meals on warmer and heartier foods that nourish the body and are rich in vitamin C and zinc. Seasonal produce to incorporate into meals can include broccoli, kale, winter squashes, and Brussels sprouts. Citrus fruits, such as oranges and lemons, are good sources of vitamin C at this time too.
Keep Hands Clean and Away from Your Face
If the pandemic has taught us anything, it’s the importance of washing hands and not touching the face. These are common sense hygiene measures, but things that we often forget about or rush through in our daily lives. Washing your hands frequently throughout the day is one of the best ways to avoid getting sick in the fall (or any time of the year).
Support Your Immune System
Your immune system can use all the support it can get right now, which is why we’re excited to offer a new maximum support product, Olive Leaf Plus. Just one serving of four capsules per day contains six premium immune-support ingredients: olive leaf extract, vitamin C, vitamin D3, zinc, garlic, and magnesium. Together, these nutrients work together in the body to protect you while adding no harmful chemicals or questionable ingredients into your system.
Get Exercise and Sleep
Taking care of yourself goes a long way when you’re trying to stay healthy with lots of germs out in the world. Getting seven to eight hours of sleep each night helps your body be more resistant to sickness. Also, getting some exercise each day can help fight stress and inflammation that can cause you to feel run down and unwell. Drinking alcohol in excess can make the body run down and less able to fight infections, so keep alcohol consumption to a minimum.
Stock Up on Homeopathics
Even when you take all the preventative measures you can, it is still possible to catch germs that your body needs time to fight off. For those situations, it’s helpful to have an arsenal of homeopathic remedies on hand as a first line of defense against sicknesses. So that you’re prepared for fall and winter, stock up on all-natural remedies that don’t come with all the side effects of pharmaceutical drugs, such as Olive Leaf Throat Spray and Olive Leaf Nasal Spray.
