The moment my kids go back to school in September we start having to worry about what sort of germs they will be bringing home with them. Even as teenagers they frequently catch colds and other nasty things from their peers. Those school buses are a cesspool of infestation! Germs are everywhere and I don’t really worry about sterilizing my home with bleach or wearing a mask. What I DO worry about is making sure our immune systems are as strong as possible to deal with anything we may come across. If you are looking for ways to provide natural immune support for your family, here are just a few ideas that may help:

How to Boost Immunity Naturally

1. Make sure everyone is getting enough sleep.  It is hard some days to get those teens to wind down at night but our immune systems cannot function well if we are tired! Aim for a good 8 hours of sleep for everyone!

2. Get regular exercise.  Even if all you can do is take the kids to the mall on a Saturday afternoon and do laps around the place, it is better than nothing! Go for a walk, invest in a treadmill, get a gym membership and send those kids outside to play! Cold temperatures will NOT make your child more susceptible to germs. Put a hat and mittens on those kids and make them run around outside for a while for a boost to their immune system!

3. Eat healthy.  This one is pretty obvious but it is harder to eat healthy during the winter. Very few fresh fruits and vegetables are in season and prices are sky high. Canned and frozen fruits and vegetables are a great substitute if you can’t find or afford fresh. Put down the cookies and eggnog and grab a glass of water and a bowl of trail mix or piece of fruit!

4. Keep your hands clean.  This does NOT require chemical based hand sanitizer! A bar of soap and water works just fine to kill germs. If you have to head out and want something to take with you, look for a natural alternative without the harsh chemicals and drying agents.

5. Take the right supplements.  No matter how healthy we eat, there are always gaps in our nutrition where vitamins can come in handy. Add a multivitamin into your daily diet. Consider probiotics for natural immune support as well as products designed specifically to boost immune function. One product you may want to try is Zarbee’s Immune Boosting products.

Zarbee’s was founded in 2008 by Dr. Zak Zarbock. They offer a complete line of natural cough products as well as many health and wellness supplements that are free from drugs, alcohol, gluten and artificial dyes. They contain natural actives and are fortified with several different vitamins to help provide natural immune support. They offer a wide range of products that are appropriate for your entire family. Some of the items you may want to consider if you are looking to provide natural immune support this winter are:

Mighty Bee Immune Support: These are gummies that are free of animal by-products and safe  for kids ages 2 and up. They contain Elderberry, clinically proven to support a strong immune system, Mighty Bee gives kids support when they’re most susceptible. The formulation of vitamins and minerals includes Vitamins C and D, both of which play a number of roles in promoting normal immune function.

Daily Bee Immune Support:  Gummies that are formulated for every day support in kids ages 4 and up. Daily Bee includes Vitamins C,A and E. Plus, it features Echinacea – one of the most popular supplements in the U.S., which has long been used to promote overall health – and zinc, both of which help maintain and bolster the immune system.

Baby Immune Support + Vitamins: The only immune support product on the market for babies as young as 2 months. Designed to provide infants and toddlers with everyday immune support and essential vitamins, Baby Immune Support + Vitamins contains brown rice syrup extract and zinc (both known to help maintain the immune system). In addition, the formula includes Vitamins C, A, D3 and E.

Elderberry Immune Support: Gummies with a concentrated formula featuring a burst of Elderberry, Vitamin C and Zinc to help support maturing immune system. Great for ‘tweens and teens who have outgrown the need for young children’s products and perfect for their parents too. The pectin-based formula features natural ingredients, with no animal by-products, drugs, alcohol or artificial dyes.

Getting my teens to take their vitamins can be tough but we try to include it as part of our ‘breakfast routine’. Acidophilus can be sprinkled in  yogurt and gummies are usually eaten happily since they taste so good. They were thrilled with the flavor of the Elderberry Immune Support gummies we received and this bottle will be going right into the ‘vitamin cabinet’ to remind us to take it every single morning!

Do you do anything special to boost immunity during the winter?

    I've been popping the Zarbee's Daily bee gummies for myself and my kids. We do NOT want any more colds coming home from school this winter. No thanks!
  2. It's so hard to stay healthy this time of year. I try my best to eat a healthy diet and wash my hands often. The only bad part about that is that is is dry and all the washing makes my hands even more dry!
  3. Sleep is the hardest thing. We end up trying to do so much that we cut into our bedtime hours!
  4. I wonder if they're ok to take for pregnant women. I've felt like I need a little added protection but haven't really taken anything because most products aren't recommended for pregnant women.
