For the past few years, I’ve been fortunate enough to have avoided pesky colds and coughs. I’m a big fan of keeping my immune system nice and strong to help me stay as healthy as possible. You don’t need to overload on tons of drugs or anti-whatevers to stay healthy – with a few simple tricks, you can help support your immune system to help fight off cold-carrying germs.
We headed out to our local Safeway to create a “cold, cough, flu kit” to ensure that we had everything we needed to stay healthy this season. The biggest part of our kit is orange juice. 100% Florida orange juice is jam-packed with Vitamin C to give your immune system a healthy boost. Fortunately, our local Safeway has lots of options for 100% Florida OJ.
The other essential part to our kit are vitamins. I take a multi-vitamin each day to make sure I’m getting all of the vitamins and minerals my body needs.
For tips to stay healthy this season, make sure you pick up the Be Well. Save Well. pamphlet from your local Safeway pharmacy. The pamphlet has some useful information as well as money-saving coupons for Kleenex, Centrum, and Clorox Disinfecting Wipes.
If you don’t have a Safeway nearby, you can keep help support a healthy immune system by following these simple steps:
Be active. Fresh air and exercise can get you out of “indoor” air and contribute to your overall good health
Stay clean. Wash your hands and disinfect when you can to avoid picking up or spreading germs.
Take a multivitamin. Sometimes your diet needs a little boost. A multivitamin can help supplement the vitamins and minerals you need to stay healthy.
Take a probiotic. 70% of your immune system is in your digestive tract. Probiotics deliver good bacteria while maintaining digestive balance.
Sleep well. It’s recommended to get 8 hours of sleep each night.
Manage stress. Stress may impact the health of your immune system, so try to keep stress to a minimum.
By keeping a few basic items in your home, you can help keep your immune system strong and your family healthy during cold, cough, and flu season.
