With everything that has happened in our world the bast six months, most people are familiar with the basics of how to support optimal immune function. However, with school starting, it’s important to review the nutrients that can help improve our children’s ability to fend of infections.

We’ve had tremendous response to our initial post about how to keep our immune system’s healthy and strong; if you missed it, you can find it here.

I can’t stress enough how important relatively simple things, – like avoiding sugar, staying hydrated and getting enough sleep – are so important to supporting immune function. No amount of supplementation can make up for eating sugar regularly, not drinking enough water and not getting enough sleep. Just like with most things related to health, diet and lifestyle are the foundation upon which everything else it built, so be sure and start with these foundational items before reaching for supplements to provide additional support.
