How to Support Your Immune Health in Summer

How to Support Your Immune Health in Summer
How to Support Your Immune Health in Summer
In the winter, you’re all about immune support — taking your supplements, drinking tea, staying active, bundling up on cold days, keeping things clean and sanitized.* Caring for your immune health is equally important in the summer months; even though it’s less likely to be prime cold season, you can still get sick in summer, and there’s nothing worse than being stuck in bed on a beautiful day!

Supporting your immune health is about more than taking your herbs. It’s about caring for your entire self, inside and out, and there’s no better time to do it than when the sun is shining and the weather is beckoning you outside.

Make it delicious.

If you’re already taking our Black Elderberry products for immune support but are craving something a little more fun, treat your immune system and your sweet tooth with yummy, beneficial lemonade, ice pops, and slushies.* We’re big fans of cooling down with something refreshing and healthy, and these summery treats are just the ticket.

Don’t neglect your respiratory system.

Your respiratory system is a power player in feeling your best, so don’t forget about it come summertime. Mighty Lungs, with Mullein and Plantain, helps maintain lung health and function so you can breathe easy on those beautiful days and quiet twilight evenings. If you’re an Echinacea fan, try Echinacea Goldenseal for respiratory health and wellness.*

Spend time with friends and family.

With its nearly endless parade of parties, barbecues, weddings, and other fun events, summer is prime season for socializing — and that’s great for your immune health! Studies have shown that being social can improve your immune function and make you feel better overall. Consider this permission to plan a garden party.

Reduce your stress.

Stress puts a damper on all kinds of summer fun and can also reduce your immune health. Find ways to better cope with the things that cause you stress and incorporate an adaptogen like Ashwagandha Root into your routine to help your body handle it.*

Play outside.

Have fun! Summer is the perfect time to let loose and be silly with your family. Get some vitamin D on a sunny day, move your body, and enjoy yourself. Exercise and laughter are two key aspects of immune health, so weed the garden, try waterskiing or paddleboarding, or plan a weekly walk with a friend.

Bounce back.

Don’t miss out on the summer activities you enjoy most. Quick Defense, with Echinacea, Black Elderberry, Ginger, and Andrographis, is a fast-acting formula for supporting immune response at onset.* Keep it on hand when you’re feeling “off.”
