5 simple way to support your immune system this winter from our friends at Kiwiherb.

As the chill starts to tickle our toes, it’s time to focus on the cooler months ahead and the best ways to support immunity and wellness. Winter bugs come in all shapes and sizes.

Building resistance against winter bugs is essential at this time of year. Here are 5 ways to support your immune system this winter:

  1. Eat up: even the best diets may need some extra support for winter. Focus on immune nutrients such as Vitamins A, C and D, and minerals such as zinc, iron and selenium. You’ll find these in green leafy veg and brightly coloured fruit and veg, especially red, blue and orange ones.
  2. Aim for prevention: try to stock up on natural healthcare to give your immune system a boost. Think daily doses of herbs such as organic Echinacea root or a deliciously warming hot elderberry and blackcurrant drink.
  3. Hibernate: now’s the time to be like a bear and get good sleep!
  4. Think calm thoughts: reducing stress is key for a healthy immune system. Herbs like Withania and Chamomile are perfect for calming nerves and improving our stress response.
  5. Get outside: get fresh air into those lungs to keep them healthy! Autumn and winter are so much more joyful when we balance our inside cosy time with getting outside – plus, joy supports good immunity.

Honey: naturally sweet relief

With its soothing nature, honey is age-old support against winter bugs, especially dry, itchy throats.  Mānuka Honey is the gold star of honey, which can help soothe winter bugs.  You’ll find certified organic Mānuka Honey, for maximum goodness with no nasties, in a range of Kiwiherb products.

The best herbs for winter bugs

Herbal healthcare products don’t just have one active ingredient – they’re complex biochemical wonders that can provide support on many levels.

Look for ingredients like:

  • Honey, which may help soothe chests and dry tickly throats.
  • Herbs including Mullein, Hyssop, Thyme and Marshmallow root which have been traditionally used to support healthy respiratory systems.

Kiwiherb Herbal Chest Syrup is great for all ages, clearing airways in the chest by helping to loosen mucus and assisting the body with removing it from the respiratory tract. It also soothes the airways and supports a healthy respiratory system.

Kiwiherb Children’s Chest Syrup is specifically formulated for children to help clear congestion in the chest and has a gentle calming action to support rest and recovery.

In short, herbs and honey combine the very best properties of natural healthcare for tackling winter bugs of every kind!

An amazing testimony on on how i conceive, also cure from fibroid, i wonder why people still don't believe that roots and herbs are very essential and fruitful in different aspect, especially when you can't conceive and bear children. I am a living witness because I tried all I could to be pregnant but all to no avail, on this faithful day, i decided to check the net for updates on healthy living and i came across testimonies of lot of women who Priest Babaka has helped with his native herbs to conceive. i decided to put a try because this has been my greatest problem in life so I emailed Priest Babaka, and he told me what to do which i did, after which he sent me some roots and herbs syrup and gave me step by step guild lines on how and when to have sex with my man. I missed my menstrual flow within a short period of taking it, and the doctor confirmed that I am pregnant. I am very glad to tell the world that I just put to bed a bouncing baby boy last week. Contact Priest Babaka for your own testimony via Email: [email protected] Or Facebook at priest.babaka
