Winter makes many of us reach for Vitamin C to prevent and assist our bodies from nasty colds and flu, but there is more you can do to prevent illness during the cold winter months. You might have considered a multivitamin supplement but wondered what all the minerals and vitamins actually do. Each plays an important role in strengthening the immune system, boosting energy levels, improving your complexion and restoring vitality. Annique’s Forever Healthy range of supplements provide an easy five step plan that will support your body in the colder season, allowing you to enjoy warm apparel, winter sports and hot drinks at the fireplace.
Step 1: OptiFlora
OptiFlora provides the necessary counterbalance to the growth of unwanted yeast and bacteria in the body and produces molecules critical to our molecular defence system – thus, boosting the immune system. These beneficial probiotic flora colonise or multiply in the digestive tract, further increasing their effectiveness, even helping to produce vitamins in the body.
Step 2: OptiVite
Supplementing with a multivitamin is crucial for sustained optimum health, energy and consistent mood. It is nearly impossible to get the necessary vitamins and minerals our bodies need daily from our diet. Supplementation is easy, convenient and allows us to fill the nutritional gaps created by our modern lifestyles and diets. OptiVite contains 12 essential vitamins and 9 minerals with added salmon oil for its omega 3 benefits and Rooibos extract – the perfect daily vitamin combination to enhance your health.
Step 3: OptiC
Vitamin C is one of the safest, most effective and well known vitamins. The human body cannot produce this crucial vitamin, so if you don’t supplement it, your health is at risk. Vitamin C has amazing health properties, from supporting the cardiovascular and immune systems and producing collagen that is critical to new tissue formulation, to lowering the risk of cancer and building collagen and tissue for a more beautiful skin, yet most of us don’t get anywhere near these benefits because we don’t get enough Vitamin C.
Step 4: OptiBoost
OptiBoost provides a complex formula of nutrients to help boost the immune system. The body’s ability to deal with invaders quickly and effectively will help you overcome illness, infection and disease. Vitamins A and C are combined with zinc, bioflavanoids and natural herbal extracts of African potato, Sutherlandia and Olive leaf extract for a more natural solution than medication to pack the punch. Timing is crucial when dealing with infections. The quicker you react, the better you can recover! Listen to your body; after all you have known it all your life!
Step 5: OptiToniQ+
Most people don’t know that many foods are acid forming. The body has a naturally alkaline environment, but when too much acid forming food is consumed, it can interfere with the body’s pH balance, making it susceptible to illness and disease.
Win the Cold War: Seven strategies to fight an infection
Supplementation aids in prevention of illness in the first place, but when infection does set in, try the following:
1. Up your OptiFlora intake from one to two capsules per day.
2. Take two to three OptiBoost capsules per day.
3. Take one OptiC capsule every two hours when infection is first detected (sore throat, swollen glands, sneezing).
4. Take 16 drops of OptiToniQ+ per day.
5. If your throat is sore, gargle with OptiToniQ+ two to three times a day.
6. Get lots of rest.
7. Avoid sugar and refined carbohydrates completely.
