The holidays are just around the corner and you know what that means: family, friends, food and… flu? Yes, busy holiday schedules, cold weather, and cramped quarters do more than lend to the magic of the season, they also create the ideal conditions for the spread of bacteria and viruses, from the common cold to influenza to gastrointestinal viruses, and even the coronavirus.
The good news, though, is that it is possible to gather together with the ones you love most without having to share more than just great memories. It’s possible to build a fortress of protection around yourself and your family with just a few immune-boosting steps.
Bolstering your family’s immune system in advance of the busy holiday season is really all about making good choices and prioritizing self-care. It means, for instance, eating a well-balanced diet packed with the nutrients the body needs to perform at its best, no matter what cold weather, chaotic schedules, and cramped celebratory gatherings throw at you and yours. It also means getting consistent, quality sleep, even when your family is away from home, and making time for regular, moderate exercise. (Even a family walk after dinner or a rousing game of Duck, Duck, Goose with the littles counts!) And, finally, it means getting a bit of extra immune support when you and yours need it.
It might come as something of a surprise, but if you’re looking to shore up your family’s immune health, you need to start with more than just clean hands and good ventilation. (Though these are certainly important!) But the true immune super power isn’t in the environment. It’s in the gut. Research has shown that the gut microbiome has a profound influence on wellness in general and on immune health in particular.
That’s why immune-boosting probiotics may well be your family’s most effective weapon in the fight against bacteria and viruses this holiday season. When you combine these disease-fighting superstars with a one-two punch of immuno-supportive vitamins and minerals, including vitamin C, vitamin D, vitamin B, and zinc, you’re building a scaffold of protection to help keep your family strong and healthy throughout the holidays and beyond the winter cold and flu season.
