Winter immunity

During winter, external threats are more frequent, and viruses are prominent. At least once a winter, we all have a runny nose or scratchy throat.

On a daily basis, our bodies are confronted with thousands of threats (viruses, bacteria, pollutants, toxins, parasites) which can leave us vulnerable if our immune system is not militant! In winter, our bodies must be even better armed against a host of circulating viruses.

What can we do to maintain the vigour of our natural defences, to better protect ourselves from infection?

Food plays a major role. Not only does it provide essential vitamins and minerals for defending the body, it also promotes microbiota balance. The bacteria in our intestines teach the body to recognize an infectious agent more quickly. But a balanced microbiota also prevents excessive inflammation. Favouring a diet rich in fruits and vegetables, oilseeds and cereals, which provide vitamins and trace elements, is essential for the immune system.

Sleeping well, practicing physical activity, but also laughing and relaxing, all boost immunity! And when the body needs a boost, the B. St-Joseph range helps to strengthen our immune system, through the action of specifically chosen ingredients. We are thus ready for winter!

Natural defences

The immune system is our primary defence against viral or bacterial threats. It is essential that this system is well balanced. An ineffective immune system leaves us vulnerable to repeated infections, while an overly powerful immune system will trigger significant inflammatory reactions.

A healthy immune system not only guarantees health, but also life and longevity! And these days, it has never been more important to be able to count on good immunity, to react quickly and effectively to any new known or unknown threat.

Fortunately, we can support and strengthen the immune system, thanks to the synergistic action of plants, honeys and micronutrients in B. St-Joseph Natural Defences, a delicious oral solution, rich in nutrients, made from echinacea, pelargonium, rich in vitamins B2, B6 and Zinc, and a source of copper.
