Nutritional Support During Covid-19

You’ve probably heard it said, “The best offense is a good defense.” It’s true. Especially when it comes to your immune system.

Your immune system is constantly on guard, monitoring what is you—and what is some opportunistic foreign invader. And while there are many lifestyle choices that can compromise the immune system, one of the most potent ways of bolstering it is with our diet.

Here are some suggestions that can give your immune system a boost:

Those of us of European descent and who live this far north can be vitamin D challenged. Without enough vitamin D we risk osteoporosis and other bone abnormalities. Plus, you may experience aches and pains and not feel your best. We offer a great vitamin D supplement. Or do your own research and pick a reputable brand.

Glutathione antioxidant - Glutathione is a powerful antioxidant that is 10 times stronger than vitamin C. Glutathione helps reduce oxidative stress, directly affecting our immunological response. Besides supporting immune function it also helps break down free radicals, make our DNA and support the function of our liver and gallbladder. We offer a great glutathione supplement. Or do your own research and pick a reputable brand.

Elderberry syrup – Over the years this has been widely used as a natural remedy for various health conditions, including the flu and the common cold. Its anti-viral effect makes it more difficult for a virus to enter the cells of our body. There is research suggesting the elderberry syrup can shorten the duration of the flu by three or four days and the common cold by two. Elderberry syrup seems to have many anti-inflammatory properties. We offer a great elderberry syrup. Or do your own research and pick a reputable brand.

NutrDyn Fruits and Greens – One scoop is the equivalent of more than 20 nutrients obtained from organic fruits and vegetables—without having to go to the health food store. This tasty blend supplies improved energy, metabolism, fat burning, digestion, detoxification, improved immunity, repair, recovery, revitalization and longevity. This is a dense, nutrient-rich super food without added sugar, wheat, dairy or caffeine. Great for smoothies.

Probiotics – If you associate probiotics with your digestive tract, you’d be correct. And 70 to 80 percent of your immune system is located in our gut. By taking good care of our intestinal flora, we can give our immune system a boost. Like in adults, probiotics may help to support a child’s digestive and immune health. We offer a great probiotic. Or do your own research and pick a reputable brand.

We keep our most popular supplements in stock. If we need to order something special, we can generally get it in a couple of days.

We even offer curbside service. Give us a ring and we’ll have your order ready and run it out to your car.

Stay safe. Stay healthy.
