It’s that time of year again, the cold and flu season is here.
Nutrition is the key to health. When the season changes and people start consuming large quantities of sugar-laden foods, immune systems weaken and become overworked.
Boosting your immune system is important if you want to stay healthy. A healthy immune system will lessen your chances of getting sick. If you do get sick, the duration of illness will not last as long and you will recover quicker.
Now is the time to plan for the season change.
