4 Supplements To Boost Immune System For Your Daily Routine

Updated: May 3



Well, it's happened. The first snow of the year hit Northern Virginia.


I'm not sure whether to be happy or not—I didn't have to run in it this time (off-day), but the chance of getting lucky next time it snows isn't very high.


Either way, chillier temperatures and biting winds have been raging for several weeks.


Not only does it make practice a bit more challenging, but colder temperatures are notorious for maybe playing a role in giving us colds or other respiratory sicknesses.


I recently found out that it's also (mainly) because we spend more time indoors when it's cold out, in close proximity to other people and their germs. Never thought of it that way!


Either way, it's a good thing that there's a big collection of products that claim to boost your immune system in winter. Pass them all my direction please!


The Best Way To Prevent Sickness


I know that the best ways to prevent sickness and keep your immune system happy are actually through really simple methods, like:


  • practicing hygiene

  • sleeping correctly, and

  • eating well.


But, there is plenty of research showing that supplements might give you an extra edge when you're trying to find ways to fight off infections.


Fueling the body properly is a huge part (of course) of leading a healthy lifestyle and is even more important when you put your body through tough workouts again and again.


Also, having a cold sucks.


Lol.


So, if you can, why not take advantage of some immune boosters to help make the winter months a bit more enjoyable? They're helpful year-round too of course.


4 Immune Boosting Supplements To Give You An Edge


There are a ton of foods and supplements out there that can give your body a little boost of good stuff.


Never rely on supplements for complete nutrition—the best stuff for you is definitely found in natural whole foods.


However, with our busy schedules and typical daily recipes, we tend to leave some gaps in our diets. That's where supplements come in! They help bridge where your intentional, whole food diet leaves off.


Because we can try really hard, but sometimes we don't get everything our body craves.


Here are 4 (mostly) natural and simple nutrient-filled products to help you boost your immunity!


1) Four Sigmatic Mushroom Coffee


This blend of ground coffee from Four Sigmatic has both Chaga and Turkey Tail mushrooms in it, which are immune and gut supportive. (300mg and 200mg, respectively)


And no, it doesn't taste like mushrooms!


Just a tasty medium roast coffee that slips into your morning routine with ease and elevates your wellness.


It's organic and has prebiotics and probiotics to support a healthy gut.


A healthy gut ties hand in hand with a healthy immune system!
