How To Stay Healthy During Cold and Flu Season

Whether you’re ready or not, cold and flu season is upon us. Good health habits, including avoiding people who are sick and implementing a diet full of fruits and vegetables, can keep your immune system healthy and in defence to prevent and fight off sickness. There are many things you can do to reduce your chances of getting sick and things you can do to prepare for the cold and flu season. 

STOCK YOUR MEDICINE CABINET 

Take time to go through your medicine cabinet. Get rid of expired medicines and make a list of what you need to replace and replenish. Include fever and pain relief medicines, decongestants, cough medicines, and more. Note: consider adding immune boosting products to your daily routine. For example, St. Francis Herb Farm Deep Immune strengthens the immune system, helping to prevent viral infections, colds and flu. Their Deep Immune formula is comprised of 8 powerful adaptogens, which act as a shield to help prevent viruses from taking hold. You can shop St. Francis Herb Farm Deep Immune products here!

FILL THE FRIDGE  

Stock the fridge with lots of vegetables and fruits. According to Nourish by WebMD, diets that are plentiful in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean protein, low-fat dairy, healthy fats, and more can provide a wide array of nutrients and antioxidants that can help boost your immune system. It is known that your immune response or susceptibility to infection can be enhanced with overall good nutrition. Luckily, Commisso’s has everything you need to ensure your fridge is full and the cupboards are stocked. 

CLEAN HOUSEHOLD SURFACES

Look for products containing bleach, alcohol, pine oil, hydrogen peroxide, and more. Be sure to shop cleaning products during your next Commisso’s visit!
