Welcome to Healthy Thursday! Each week, I'll be sharing with you a variety of products and tips designed to help keep you and your family healthy! This month, I'll be discussing items to help with immunity boosting and staying well during the upcoming holiday season.
I've been getting a lot of questions about the supplements I've been taking to help myself heal. While I can share what I'm taking, please don't take my regimen as the gold standard for healing. It's what's worked right for me...and even this constantly needs tweaking (every 2-3 weeks honestly) as my body changes. For your specific needs, contact me and we can discuss YOU on a more individual, personalized level.
So, Brooke, what do you take?
I take a lot of stuff, so I'll just share one at a time. I'll start with my immune booster, olive leaf. Why olive leaf? Well, we all know how healthy olive oil is for you right? It's good for your heart, circulatory system, blood pressure, skin, hair, extremely high in antioxidants, the list goes on and on. But, did you also know olive leaf can help boost your immune system?
Olive leaf is naturally high in the plant polyphenol oleuropein, known for its free radical fighting abilities, which comes in handy fighting foreign objects like viruses and bacteria. In supplement form, you want to look for at least 12% standardized oleuropein. That way, you know you're getting strong fighters ready to do battle during the busy winter months!
How many do you take?
I just take one, one time a day with a meal. The recommendation on the bottle is 1 capsule with a meal 1-3 times a day.
Why Nature's Sunshine?
I love them for a variety of reasons. First, one of the amazing women on my healing team introduced me to these products and I trust her immensely. Second, this company produces their products in America, and I support American products whenever I can. Third, they are committed to purity and dedicated to science. They test their products over 600 times during ALL of the points of manufacture (ex. coming into the warehouse as raw materials, during and after encapsulation, even after bottling!). I appreciate a company who truly takes care to give us exactly what we're paying for! Lastly, this company has been around for over 40 years, selling their products all over the world. They were the first of its kind to encapsulate herbs, a process we take for granted today. Shipping is very prompt, customer service is wonderful, and their prices are very reasonable and competitive.
Could this help me?
Well, it certainly can. I know plenty of people who begin using it as soon as they feel a tickle coming on. I also know how busy we all get around this time of the year and need all the extr heart healthy antioxidants we can get. Helping our blood pressure, and circulation during holiday (aka family stress) time is also a nice bonus!
How do I order it/look for more information?
