Fall Immunity

By Katie Valdez/Wellness Manager

Our immune system is comprised of complex biological structures and processes that defend our body against invading viruses, toxins, and bacteria. The most important ways to bolster your immune system year-round is to ensure that you’re consuming a healthy diet, getting enough sleep, and regularly exercisingHowever, there are also supplements that can help if you are looking for additional immune support. Here are some of my personal favorites: 

Abiqua Naturals Elderberry Boost (Bend, Oregon)

This herbal tonic is packed full of potent free radical scavenging vitamins and anthocyanins. Elderberries have been used for centuries because of their immune supporting ability, helping maintain health and well-being.  

Host Defense Mushrooms Stamets 7 (Olympia, Washington) 

Stamets 7 is a blend of seven different mushrooms that helps build foundational immunity. Each species of mushroom provides its own uniquely supportive properties, all together offering robust support for your immunity. 

Herb Pharm Rapid Immune Boost (Williams, Oregon) 

This fast absorbing blend of Echinacea, Goldenseal, Osha, Black Elderberry and other liquid herbal extracts support a powerful response to immune system distress.
