Cold and flu season is here, but a few simple products can keep your natural defenses strong. Here are some of Ananda’s recommendations to help out your immune system.

“Your immunity begins with your daily products,” says Ananda. An apple-a-day-keeps-the-doctor-away really is true.

“Be aware to the quality of food you consume everyday.”

Ananda points to three important components for an immune-boosting diet: probiotics, multivitamins and protein. Probiotics help in metabolizing nutrients and assist your gut bugs to fight off infections, multivitamins prevent deficiencies and proteins increase the number of amino acids that strengthen cells and build your cellular integrity.

There are many options for probiotics, multivitamins and protein supplements, but Ananda explains that it all comes down to personal preferences.

“You have the freedom to choose what you want. You just have to find out what suits you and your budget.”

“Diffusers are one of the best things to keep the living breathing space free of a bug or virus,” says Ananda.

If you’re not sure where to start, visit a Blush Lane store. The health and body departments have trained staff that can help you find a product that fits your needs. Not only are the staff trained in the products Blush Lane carries, but many are certified natural product specialists and nutritionists.
