Top Tips from Our Naturopath Christabel – Immunity Boosting

With the weather packing in, we’re spending more time indoors with others and so we’ll be exposed to more bugs. Ensure you boost your immune system so you can give your body the best chance to ward off the barrage of bugs.

Here are a few tips from our Naturopath

Olive Leaf
This extract of the olive tree leaves has traditionally been used to support immunity with its medicinal properties. It is high in antioxidants, is antiviral, antibacterial and antifungal.

Vitamin C
Vitamin C is an antioxidant to help against free radical damage and promote white cell production, in turn helping us fight against pathogens. Bio Balance, liposomal is preferred for quicker and more effective cell absorption.

Echinacea
The root and aerial parts are used for this plant’s immuno-modulating and immuno-stimulating actions. Fun fact – The tongue tingling that Echinacea causes is from the alkylamides, which help modulate immune responses. A good Echinacea product, always leaves a tingling tongue!

When taking herbs and supplements, always check for interactions against your medications and in pregnancy and breastfeeding.

Christabel,
Wise Cicada
