Having a highly active immune system allows the body to support itself against bugs, viruses and bacteria that we come across everyday.

The winter season always brings on new ills and chills and if you're finding yourself being more and more susceptible to the dreaded winter lurgy then perhaps supporting your immunity may help reducing the frequency and the length on those winter sniffles.

Whether you choose to take vitamin C, a garlic extract, zinc, echinacea, olive leaf, manuka honey or many of the other immunity supporting supplements, remember it's best to get in early and continue to take even if you do fall ill. Also be aware the importance that your stomach and intestines play in immune health, so often a probiotic is recommended.
