Back-to-School Immune Defense for Parents
It’s back-to-school season. And I want to share with you some tips to help you fortify and bolster your immune system. Because when kids go back to school, we will often see an increase in doctor’s appointments, where folks are getting some colds or viral invasions that are just related to all the kids going back to school. And increasing our immune defense mechanism is going to be helpful in keeping you healthy and well with the start of school.
Fortify Your Immune System
So, I’m going to share with you some options for you to add to your catalog of resources that will both modulate and balance your immune response, as well as fortify your system, so that you are stronger immune-wise and can easily combat any type of viral invasion. This is also highly effective for any of my long COVID haulers or anybody who is dealing with post-COVID infection that might already have a weaker, a less modulated immune system.
Vitamin C, Zinc, and Elderberry
So, my first recommendation here, I really, really love the Immunity 3. This is a fantastic supplement because it has both vitamin C, it has zinc, and then it has the immunity blend – this is the amazing blend of camu camu and elderberry. And the camu camu is very high in the vitamin C content. So, you are going to be getting a natural hit of vitamin C, and it actually is one of the best sources from a natural plant-derived source for vitamin C. So, Immunity 3 is a really good compliment to your everyday routine and just helping to balance your immune state.
And zinc is also another supplement that, actually it’s a mineral that we will add in to help at the beginning of that immune response. So, if you aren’t consuming any type of zinc or you’re not getting a lot of zinc in your dietary everyday requirements, maybe you’re not eating a lot of meat or are more vegetarian based, we have a really good zinc arginine and zinc glycinate. So, it’s a 50/50 blend, which is really good – assorted forms of zinc are always good to balance things out. So, I recommend Immunity 3. This is fantastic.
Fermented Functional Mushrooms
The other supplement that I recommend is the 7 Mushrooms [formerly 7M+]. This gives you the mushroom potency to help modulate and regulate your immune system. And one of the fantastic things that we see in this particular blend is its fermented mushroom extracts, which means the fermentation process actually heightens the bioavailability of the mushroom compounds. And mushrooms, categorically, are very good at helping regulate and modulate an either underactive or overactive immune system.
So, I’m going to share with you some of my favorite mushrooms you’re going to find in here. There’s turkey tail, you’re going to find chaga, we have maitake, we have lion’s mane, we have shiitake, reishi. We have the fruiting bodies as well. And this is just so powerful at helping support your immune response mechanism.
Multiple Systems Support with Magnesium
And when it comes to fighting viruses and any type of ick that you might be exposed to, one of the most important nutrients that we all tend to have lacking in our body is magnesium. So, magnesium, adding a really good magnesium blend, like the Magnesium 7, that has assorted forms of magnesium to support the assorted muscle groups and organ and glandular soft tissue requirements… we actually require magnesium in over 600 body enzymatic reactions. So, when we’re deficient, there’s obviously a deficiency when it comes to our immune response.
Recommended Supplementation Even if Your Household Doesn’t Include Kids
So, these three are very powerful at supporting your immune system, especially with return of school. And even if you don’t have kids, kids are going to be around, they’re shopping, they’re in stores or in restaurants, they’re going to be everywhere, and so it’s always a good idea if you have children in your family or it’s back-to-school season for your household to just bolster your immune system.
So, those are my tips for you today, and I’m very excited that you should be starting the beginning of school season, bolstered and modulated to help support and get you over any type of viral or bacterial influences that come with the return-of-school season.
