With the flu season well and truly in force, if you haven't already, it's time to get
cracking on "super boosting" you immune system! Here are 5 natural ways to
give you the lift you need.
Drink Lemon Water
Everyone talks about that lemon water cleanse. Kim, Kylie, Gwenyth... and we
may roll our eyes (while also going out and buying 5kg of lemons) but fresh
lemons are packed with antioxidants, Vitamin C, Potassium and Magnesium.
Which means a lemon a day may actually keep the doctor away! Squeeze
one into a glass of filtered water today to start boosting!
Get Your ZZZ's
Don't ever underestimate the power of regular, full nights of sleep! A minimum
of 7 hours a night can reduce stress, increase immunity as well as giving you
the energy to stay fresh all day long. So don't sleep on it, and get some ZZZ's!
A hunk of fresh ginger can rid the body of toxins, fight infection, reduce
inflammation and cleanse the colon so grate some fresh ginger into some
green tea (which will also strengthen your natural immune defences) and sip away!
When it comes to the immune system, so much can be traced back to gut
health. And bone broth is one of the best things you can put into your gut to
naturally repair and relax from the inside out. For our daily bone broth fix,
we love Happy Mammoth Organic Bone Broth.
If you're time poor, there's one vitamin we can recommend that actually
works and we can't go without! ArmaForce! (We have a singer in the office
and she swears by them to stay fresh while touring) Take one a day during
the flu season and if you feel the sickness coming on, increase your intake
to 4-6 vitamins per day. This will either hold off the completely or severely
decrease it's severity so you can keep moving on with your life.
Super Boosting Bras
If none of this works, and you find yourself feeling flat, don't ever underestimate
the power of feeling good. Boost your confidence (and your cup size) with the
Bombshell collection and if you do get sick, you can at least fake it like you're not!
