The Health-Conscious Gift Giving Guide
We all know that health is the greatest gift. So why not change our thinking around gift-giving this holiday season... from traditional gifts, to ones that will support our loved ones’ health?
The winter holidays line up with the cold and flu season, when there’s an onslaught of viruses coming at the immune system. There are a few reasons that people are more likely to get sick during the winter. One is that rhinoviruses, which are one of the main causes of the common cold, thrive in colder temperatures. Another reason is that cold air slows down mucus clearance through the nasal passage. Usually, mucus acts as a line of defense against viruses that try to enter the body through the nose. But when mucus isn’t able to flow freely because of the cold, common cold and flu viruses can more easily gain access through the nasal passages. (1)
Once a virus enters the body, it usually comes up against phagocytes, which are immune cells that consume and digest viruses. But research has shown that colder temperatures make phagocytes less effective. (1)
Additionally, people tend to spend more time indoors as temperatures get colder. Crowded indoor spaces are prime locations for the spread of viruses. And central heating decreases air humidity, which is connected to cases of the flu. (1)
All of these factors lead to people being more susceptible to colds and the flu during the winter holidays. Keeping our immune systems balanced is key to maintaining health and making sure that everyone can enjoy holiday celebrations with their close friends and family. With this in mind, what better gift is there than immune-supporting supplements?
Research-Based Immune Supplements Support Seasonal Health
Because of everything going on in the world, we need to think about the immune system more than ever. We can use this gift-giving season to consider the people in our lives who would benefit from cellular health and immune system balance. Gifting an immune-supporting supplement is one of the best ways to show care for your loved ones’ well-being this holiday season.
