Even though winter is officially over, it’s important that we are continuously working to keep our immune systems strong. Fortunately, there are a variety of natural ways you can give your immunity a boost!
1. Take Time for Tulsi Turmeric Ginger Tea - Chances are that you have heard about the numerous benefits of both turmeric and ginger. You can’t go online without seeing an article about these powerful herbs come across your screen! ORGANIC INDIA recognized the benefits of these two ingredients and combined them into one delicious and nourishing tea. Their USDA Certified Organic Tulsi Turmeric Ginger Tea is just the thing for when you are feeling under-the-weather. Not only does the Tulsi act as an adaptogen, it has nutrients to aid in boosting immunity while promoting tranquility in your body. Best of all? It is caffeine, gluten, and GMO free. With 18 tea bags per box, you will have plenty of tea to help your immunity stay strong during cold and flu season.
2. Get Nourished with Neem - Not familiar with neem? You should be! Neem has a rich history in India and has been used for thousands of years as a way to promote optimal wellness in the body. Traditionally, it has been used to promote skin and oral health. But its properties go far beyond that. ORGANIC INDIA has worked to blend the highest quality of organically grown Neem leaves, twigs, and flowers to create one immune-boosting powerhouse. Try taking one or two capsules a day to keep your immune system strong.
3. Sip a Smoothie - One of the simplest ways to give your body the nutrients it needs to stay well is by making smoothie! Smoothies combine a variety of ingredients into one simple drink concoction, making it easy to incorporate leafy greens, healthy fats, and plant-based protein into your diet. You can really rev-up the nutritional value by adding extra ingredients like chia seeds, hemp seeds, and protein powder. One of my favorite smoothie additions is the ORGANIC INDIA Whole Husk Psyllium. Not only will this thicken my smoothies, it gives them a nice boost of beneficial fiber to aid in digestion. Remember, digestion is the foundation for overall health. By keeping our gut healthy, we are ensuring that our immune system will stay strong!
4. Wash your Hands - Remember when your mother would always tell you to “wash your hands?” Turns out, mama was right! Many studies have shown washing hands with soap and water can reduce your chances of getting a cold, the flu, and other nasty illnesses. Simply use warm water and mild soap to work up a good lather all over your hands. Make sure you don’t forget to wash under your finger nails as this is where a lot of nasty germs can reside.
