February – Immunity

We love winter – roaring fires, bracing winter walks and beautiful frosty mornings. But it’s also the season for coughs, colds and flu, and when life’s so busy, who has time to be sick?
Here are a few immunity-boosting tips to help you fight winter bugs and bounce back more quickly.

Eat yourself well

Be strong and try to fight the temptation to hunker down with starchy comfort foods. Instead go for antioxidant-rich fruit and green vegetables. We know it’s dull, but avoiding sugar, caffeine and processed or high fat foods really helps, as does exercise and sleep.

Fight back

Vitamin C and zinc  have also been shown to help boost immunity and shorten the duration and severity of cold and flu symptoms.

Elderberries are rich in antioxidant vitamin C, while Echinacea is a great natural protector.

Essential oils make excellent winter tonics – diffuse decongesting Eucalyptus or inhale Frankincense.
