Winter is Coming!

Winter is coming - are you prepared?

You’ve had the chimney swept and stacked the firewood, bought a new electric blanket, stocked up your emergency supplies, taken your car for its Winter service, and cleaned the gutters and downpipes. But is there anything you can do to prepare for common Winter ailments? Yes! Read on…

Just like your car and your house, your body needs to be stocked up to be ready to take on everything that the coldest and wettest parts of the year can throw at it. Your immune system needs enough of the right vitamins and minerals to take on the Cold and Flu viruses effectively. And it’s important to note that your body cannot manufacture vitamins and minerals, or store them for later use. They have to be obtained from the foods we consume on a daily basis.

A healthy diet is a great start, but to make sure you are getting everything you need for your body to cope with the upcoming battles, we recommend adding high-quality nutritional supplements, vitamins and minerals to you and your family’s daily diet.

Active Elements 7.1Active Elements 7.1

Much is often said about your body’s need for vitamins and good nutrition, but you don’t as often hear about its need for minerals, aside from calcium for bones and teeth. But minerals are the foundation for everything else your body builds, and having enough of the right ones can make all the difference when your body is under attack. We recommend Active Elements 7.1 in general to keep a healthy body topped up.

In fact there a a variety of different formulations in the Active Elements range (we stock them all), targeting a wide variety of potential mineral deficiencies. When you come in for a consultation we can also determine if any of these may be helpful to you.

Meta Zinc with Vitamin CMeta Zinc with Vitamin C

A lack of adequate Zinc in your diet can also compromise your immune system. Zinc is involved with cell division, cell growth, wound healing, and the breakdown of carbohydrates. Zinc is also needed for the senses of smell and taste. Vitamin C is needed for the growth and repair of tissues in all parts of your body. Vitamin B6 supports adrenal function, brain development (in kids) and function, and helps your body make serotonin (regulates mood) and norepinephrine (which helps your body to cope with stress). Meta Zinc with Vitamin C (and activated B6) is a great tasting powder that you can mix in a cup of water and take daily to ensure you are prepared for the day ahead!

All the above formulations are gluten free, lactose free and dairy protein free, and we have them in stock right now. They are also high quality and high potency formulations which you cannot obtain from a supermarket or health food store.
