How do you stay healthy all winter?

Every day stress, poor nutrition and lack of sleep can all challenge your immune system.

And then enter all the extra germs in the winter time, and extra threats some years like this year with the Coronavirus.

Immune System Supplements Can Help

Your  body is constantly fighting a battle against germs, illnesses, and diseases, whether you realize it or not.  It can be hard to keep from getting sick, and that’s where immune boosters can make a difference.

First you want to address these things that keep your immune system strong:  managing stress, feeding your body the nutrition it needs to be healthy, and getting rest to rejuvenate and stay strong.

But how do you go to the next level?  How do you increase your strength and vitality, and raise your resistance against disease?

What we have found that works for us is to take some very targeted, clinically proven, natural supplements.

All-natural, whole food supplements to boost immunity

We use 4 immune system supplements that provide nutrition beyond what we get in our food, to keep a strong immune system.

2 are used as needed when we feel that first tickle in our throat, or we are exposed to someone who is sick, or we feel extra tired which is a sign we are fighting off something or about to get sick.

Occasional Use:

Vitalized ImmunityA vitamin C blast of 16 Oranges in a fizzy tablet that also has echinacea and zinc gives an immediate immune boost.

Echinacea and some other immune boosting nutrients inside Defend & Resist is another great way to boost our immune system quickly.

2 immune builders we take every day:

Nutriferon is the most powerful immune supplement we have found that can be taken on a daily basis to keep our immune system strong and healthy.  

Vitamin C in a sustained release is the most powerful immune supplement we have found that can be taken on a daily basis to keep our immune system strong and healthy. Shaklee Vitamin C in chewable form for children (or adults who have trouble swallowing) is what our grandchildren currently take.

immune system boosters for seasonal illnesses

Your immune system is a complex system of interconnecting cells, tissues and organs that play a central role in your health. Your immune system is designed to recognize foreign invaders and mounts a response to destroy and eliminate these before they cause health issues. Your immune system develops antibodies so that your body can more quickly destroy these invaders should you be exposed to them again. Staying healthy means giving your immune system the help it needs so that it can protect you all year long. Supporting your immune system with great nutrition is one of the best ways to get a leg up in keeping you well.


NutriFeron is an exclusive, patented formula that provides a proprietary blend of four plant extracts designed to naturally increase interferon.  Scientists and medical communities have identified interferon as being crucial to healthy immune function.

When Dr. Yasuhiko Kojima was looking for answers for how the immune system worked he discovered a protein in the body called interferon. Our bodies make three distinct types of interferon: alpha, beta, and gamma.  These forms of interferon are only available separately and only with a prescription.  NutriFeron increases the body’s production of all three types naturally (without side effects).

After 40+ years of research and reviewing thousands of compounds and 200 herbs, Dr. Kojima isolated four herbs that he formulated into NutriFeron to help optimize your natural immune response process without overstimulating it.  That’s important if there is a reason why you don’t want to overstimulate your immune system as you strengthen it.

What Nutriferon does in your body:

  • Provides immune support at the cellular level
  • Designed to naturally increase levels of interferon
  • Is the only dietary supplement in the United States formulated by the discoverer of interferon, world-renowned immunologist Dr. Yashuhiko Koj
  • Has been shown in a laboratory study to naturally increase natural killer (NK) cells

Vitamin C

You may think more about keeping your immune system strong during winter, but your immune system is working hard all of the time.  There are constantly threats of bacteria, infections, viruses, parasites, a fungus, or other environmental challenges that are all around us every day.

Vitalized Immunity is an immune booster that you can take when you are exposed to one of these threats, are feeling tired or run down, are exposed to someone close to you that is sick, or have any other reason why you feel you should give your immune system a boost.

This is a tablet that you dissolve in water and it is like getting the amount of vitamin C in 16 oranges with one serving.  Vitalized Immunity contains zinc and Echinacea as well.  It is sweetened with natural monk juice and has no artificial colors or flavors or sweeteners. Your body can benefit from higher doses of Vitamin C when it is under attack.

Vitamin C sustained release tablets is what we take daily to help our immune system as well as providing a fantastic cellular antioxidant for our overall health. Shaklee Vitamin C is formulated in a sustained release form in order to release vitamin C in your body over time since it is a water soluble vitamin and your body can only use so much at a time.

We take one Vitamin C tablet every day that combines with what we get in our daily vitamin strip, and then increase our C when we are sick or exposed to someone who is sick.  Chewable Vitamin C is great for kids and adults who can’t swallow, and is easy for everyone to get 100 mg doses of C.

Defend & Resist Complex

If you are wanting to improve your immune system with Echinacea, Defend & Resist Complex is a unique product that can help boost your resistance to colds and flu, yeast and bladder infections and other infections.

The other ingredients in Defend & Resist Complex are Larchtree that helps boost Echinacea effects Elderberry extract that contains antioxidants that help increase the immune response Zinc that has long been associated with a stronger immune function

You take Echinacea when you are exposed to someone close to you that is sick, or have symptoms yourself including being overly tired (a sign of an illness coming on). Chances are you may not get sick at all. If you do get a cold you can still start taking Echinacea right away to help shorten the duration.

You can also take Echinacea on a cyclical basis to boost your immune system. As an example, two ways would be to take for two weeks and then one week off or take for 10 days and 5 days off. You can swallow the tablets whole, chew and swallow, let dissolve in your mouth like a lozenge, or drink it in hot tea.

All four of these immune boosting supplements are excellent in delivering results.

Two you would have in your medicine cabinet for when you need them, and Vitamin C and Nutriferon can be taken year round if you feel you need a strong immune building supplement.
