The colder weather is coming. I won’t say the “S” word just yet though. Maybe if we spell it backwards, it’ll hold off? WONS.
This time of year people have an introduction into the fall/winter season by presenting with a cold or flu. Research has shown that proper supplements this time of year can be as effective, and potentially less dangerous, than other more mainstream intervention methods. Supplements in conjunction with your chiropractic adjustment are very effective in not only strengthening, but counter-balancing stressors that suppress your immune system function. When you do not receive proper nutrients, this makes you more susceptible to the cold and flu viruses being transmitted this time of year.
Multi: Supplies the nutrients you’re not getting in food
Omega 3’s: Reduces Inflammation
D3: 5000 IU Immune system, healthy bones, brain physiology
Magnesium: Protects nerves, heart, blood vessels, and brain
K: Proper blood clotting, strong bones/teeth
The list above is a group of essential vitamins we should be taking everyday. They work in conjunction with each other to provide optimal benefit to you, the host. There is variability in the amounts you should take if you are sick or you are preventing illness.
I will be covering each one of these supplements in the following days right here on this blog. Don’t worry, I’ll provide you with references to support the reasoning behind my recommendations.
Thanks for reading,
