I really did try to keep this short for you! Limiting myself to just 5 Ways to keep yourself Well in the Winter isn’t easy. I changed this list at least 5 times. From immune supporting oils, to chemical free germ fighters, to probiotics, I really struggled with a list of only FIVE. But, here you have it, the Five I settled on! 🙂
Beginning in October through the first of January, our typical diet includes drastically more sugar than the rest of the year, decreased antioxidant fortified vegetables that work on our behalf, and less sunlight. This is a big part of why you see a spike in illness in these months. Time to take our health back and restore wellness after a deluge of treats
OmegaGize is a fortified combination of Omega 3 fatty acids, Vitamin D-3, and CoQ10 for optimal brain, heart, eye and joint support. As all of Young Living’s supplements, OmegaGize is infused with essential oils. This increases the bioavailabilty of the vitamins in the supplement and allows the body to absorb them
better increasing their effectiveness. This particular combination of essential oils include Clove, German Chamomile, and Spearmint for added antioxidant support.
In the winter, it can be difficult to get enough Vitamin D3 due to the sun being farther away, and more stormy, cloud covered days. This results in negative mood swings and a decrease in calcium absorption. OmegaGize boasts 950IU of Viatmin D3 per serving (4 liquid capsules) which is 237% of daily value! As if the idea of having an even mood in the winter weren’t enough of a benefit, it supports healthy circulation as well.
CoQ10 is found in high concentrations in hard working organs like th heart, liver, and kigneys. As you age, your body decreases CoQ10. OmegaGize, utilizes the bioidentical Kaneka Q10 CoQ10, which is the highest quality CoQ10 in the world and replenishes this vitamin to the body.
Thieves Cough Drops
Try to avoid it as we might, illness often visits in the winter. Common colds can become infections when not cared for immediately and that’s no fun. Thankfully, there are Thieves Cough Drops! These are one of our first over the counter products and wonderful for soothing a scratchy throat, suppressing a cough, but most importantly, supporting your immune system so you get better instead of worse.
If you don’t know the legend of the Four Thieves, look here. It’s quick and fun! 🙂
Several common cough drops contain a substance called dextromethorphan. This can be linked to nausea, diarrhea, vomiting, allergic reactions, hot flashes, dizziness, and possible psychotic breaks (high dose, generally from cough syrup). Thieves cough drops are free of harmful chemicals!
Increased Vitamin Cisknown to support a healthy immune system. There are even clinics that adminsiter it intravenously because of its benefits! Once again, this is a Young Living supplement infused with essential oils for optimal absorption and use by the body.
