Immunity Boosters to Get You through Flu Season
The colder weather is upon us, and it’s definitely time to take care of your health. We’ve got healthy tips to leave you feeling your best, staying energized and upbeat – even when the weather is a bit dreary outside.
Warm yourself up with some herbal teas
Herbal teas not only warm you up from the inside, but many of them contain powerful antioxidants which help to boost your immunity. Our Elmline Immunity Boost Green tea is loaded with antioxidants and has a delicate flavour of Japanese green tea with red Korean ginseng, safflower, fruits and a hint of tangerine.
Add Some Flavour!
Garlic and ginger, not only add great flavour to any dish, but also have potent anti-bacterial and anti-viral properties. This makes them fantastic agents in fighting off any of those nasty bugs which may try and invade in the fall and winter months.
Although a glass of water may be the last thing you feel like on a cold rainy day, it can often be the best thing. Your body needs plenty of fluids to rehydrate your dry skin. During a cold or flu, increase your water intake to replenish lost fluids.
Stay Active and Team Up
Stay motivated this winter by choosing a workout partner with a similar schedule to yours. Hit a yoga studio or suit up and head outdoors for a brisk walk with a friend. This will give yourself a goal and keep your mind and body feeling great.
