Your Immunity Boosting Tool Kit
Getting sick at this time of year is inevitable. If you’re not catching a bug, chances are
someone in your family has. Luckily we’ve put together a great list of products that
will help turn your immune system into a bug-fighting machine as well as help you feel
better and get you back on your feet if you do happen to be feeling under the weather.
Golden Mylk - This turmeric based drink is a delicious way to boost your immune system and will have you feeling better in no time if you find yourself a feeling under the weather! Traditionally made with turmeric, honey, coconut oil and any type of non-dairy milk, this beverage has great anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties that will help soothe your cold & flu symptoms while also healing the root of the issue. We’re loving
the new Golden Mylk powder from Botanica because of how simple and easy it is without
sacrificing its delicious flavour. You simply combine the powder with your favourite type of
milk and you’ve got yourself a perfect turmeric latte packed with immune boosting goodness!
Bone Broth - Known for its incredible healing properties, bone broth is a must-have for
boosting immunity and ensuring a speedy recovery when you’re not feeling on top of your game. Bone broth is made by simmering bones to produce an amazing immunity boosting and healing broth, perfect for soups, stews or even just sipping on their own. It’s packed with collagen and glutamine, plus a ton of minerals that help heal your body from the inside out. Besides its amazing health benefits, bone broth is great for soothing your throat and your stomach and warming you up when you have a chill you just can’t shake! We’ve been loving Organika bone broth powder which allows you to make up bone broth in a fraction of the time traditional bone broth takes plus it comes in an original flavour and a ginger flavour to please everyone’s taste buds.
Tea & Honey - Another staple in our tool kit is tea and honey. There’s nothing like a hot cup of tea with a teaspoon of raw honey to sooth your throat when you’re sick or to warm you up on a chilly day. We have a ton of great teas including condition specific teas from Traditional Medicinals as well as some organic holiday teas from Stash. We love these teas with some raw honey from the Unheated Honey company!
Soup - Soups are a great choice when you’re feeling under the weather but find yourself without much of an appetite. Packed with vitamins and nutrients, soups are a perfect way to get in a ton of immune-boosting veggies at once. We love the soups from Eat More Soup! Not only are they packed with wholesome ingredients and flavour but they’re a social enterprise that provides life-changing opportunities to vulnerable adults in the community. Not only do their soups help you feel better but they also help out members of the community! We also have some other great soups from Pacific Foods and Amy’s to cater to all tastes.
Immune Boosting Supplements
Natural Factors Echinamide Quickblast - ECHINAMIDE Quick-Blast provides fast relief for sore throats and sinus congestion! It combines organic echinacea extract with eucalyptus, peppermint, menthol, and lemon, in a base of honey helping to relieve symptoms, fight off infections and reduce the duration of colds. This product is a must-have in our immune boosting tool kit!
Vitamin C - Another staple in our immune-boosting tool kit is vitamin C. Vitamin C is crucial in supporting immune health and works wonders in getting you back to health when you’re feeling sick. Some of our favourite vitamin C supplements are SISU Ester-C which is the only form of vitamin C that has been proven to stay in the body for up to 24 hours. We also love Ener-C which is a drinkable form of vitamin C which tastes delicious and makes it super easy to get your daily recommended intake.
Oil of Oregano - Working as a very potent antimicrobial, oil of oregano works great at preventing and eliminating cold & flu symptoms and fighting off infection and can be taken daily for prevention. Although it comes with a very intense taste, oil of oregano works wonders plus we have our very own Kardish brand of oil of oregano that
can be found in all of our stores and will be a staple in your own immunity tool kit!
