SUPPLEMENT WITH SPIRAVEG
Fresh spirulina is an immunity saviour that is extremely high in protein and is an incredible source of antioxidants, B vitamins, vitamin C, iron and calcium. PLUS, our live spirulina is 100% bioavailable, meaning that your body can easily absorb these immunity boosting nutrients!
GET MORE VITAMIN C
As a key antioxidant, vitamin C is essential for strong immunity by preventing damage to our organs and glands. Add broccoli, cantaloupe, cauliflower, kale, orange, bell peppers, sweet potatoes, strawberries and/or tomatoes to your diet for your daily dose of vitamin C.
COOK WITH BONE/MINERAL BROTH
Mineral broth provides a wealth of nutrients that are easy to digest and can help support a weakened immune system. This superfood liquid contains anti-inflammatory and gut-healing proteins, healthy fats and minerals that are essential for a healthy immune system. We love local Calgary maker, High-Vibe Health!
START YOUR DAY WITH LEMON WATER & FRESH SPIRULINA
Start every morning with a glass of lemon water and fresh spirulina, especially if your immune system is feeling compromised. This immune-boosting drink helps the body to eliminate toxins and offers a healthy vitamin C boost!
GET OUTSIDE & SOAK UP SOME SUN
Vitamin D supports white blood cells and is the body’s first line of defnse against pathogens. To prevent illness, step outside to enjoy healthy sun exposure (but you may need to supplement with a Vitamin D too, but always consult a physician first).
ADD SUPERFOODS TO MEALS & DRINKS
Adding superfoods throughout your day can have a powerful impact on your body system functions – including immunity. Simply add potent foods like spirulina, coconut butter, dark leafy greens and berries to smoothies, yogurt, elixirs or salad dressings for a detoxifying, immunity boost.
GET A GOOD NIGHT’S SLEEP
Getting a good night sleep is essential to overall health and proper immune system function! Aim to get 7-8 hours of sleep every night to allow your body to rest, repair and fight off illness.
