Winter is coming, but it feels like it decided to arrive a little early here in the northeast. We know how important it is to support our immune system in the colder months, but a little extra Vitamin C doesn't exactly cut it these days.
At PIH, we have carefully vetted and tested the best available supplements to keep your body supported and ready for battle against virulent viruses, from the common cold to Covid-19. With all of that on top of mind, we've curated an immune system supporting bundle, available for purchase on-line via Fullscript ("prescription needed") and at our office.
Each immune support bundle includes the following five supplements which combine to give our body the support it needs during the cold winter months and all year round:
- Melatonin (Designs for Health)
Melatonin is known for its ability to aid in sleeping, thus giving us the opportunity to get our much needed rest; something that is imperative to our overall health and wellbeing. In addition to helping us sleep, according to a study done by the Cleveland Clinic, it may also help prevent or aid in treating Covid-19 due to its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects.
- Quercetin (Pure Encapsulations)
Quercetin is a type of flavonoid that contains powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. These properties can aid in protecting our cells, an essential role in protecting us against the affects of infectious and other diseases.
- Zinc Supreme (Designs for Health)
Zinc is an essential nutrient to keep our immune system functioning optimally, which helps in fighting against viruses.
- Vitamin C (Integrative Therapeutics)
Good ol' Vitamin C, also known as Ascorbic Acid, has been used for generations to combat the common cold and other nasty viruses, and with good reason! It helps protect and strengthen our immune system in addition to improving cardiovascular, ocular, and skin health.
- ADK (Designs for Health)
This potent blend of Vitamins A, D, and K combine to strengthen our bones, heart, and overall immune system. These three essential nutrients provide the extra support our immune systems need when threatened by the increased infectious viruses we see during cold and flu season.
