It’s important to keep your immune system strong during these cold winter months to combat viruses and pathogens and keep your system working like a well-oiled machine. The better you feel, the more time you’ll be able to spend outdoors practicing your favorite activities. You can still enjoy outdoor activities in colder weather as long as you dress appropriately and maintain an adequate vitamin intake. Below are five tips on how to keep your immunity up this winter, including our FUEL Immune Health hydration powder stick packs.
Vitamin C is what everyone tends to think of when they think of immune defense, and for good reason. Vitamin C plays a pivotal role in immune health by boosting the immune system. Vitamins A, B6, B12, C, D, and E, riboflavin, folate, selenium, and zinc all lead to a healthy immune system and they are all present in our FUEL Immune Health hydration stick packs. So, grab a glass of orange juice or a FUEL Immune Health pack and give your system the boost it needs to protect itself and ward of viruses.
Getting plenty of water is another vital step to achieving better immune health. Water does so much for your body; it balances salt intake, helps you feel alert, and it’s good for your heart. It’s also important for immunity. Dehydration can wreck an outdoor adventure…fast. Nobody wants to go on a five-mile hike when they feel swollen and groggy. Adding a FUEL Immune Health stick to a 16 oz bottle of water will help you get the necessary vitamins and electrolytes while also hydrating your body with a dose of H20.
Our FUEL Immune Health sticks have 1,000% of your daily vitamin C intake per serving. An orange has about 80% of your daily vitamin C intake, so that’s the power of 12 oranges in one bottle of water. One FUEL Immune Health stick also contain 125 mg of Wellmune®, or beta glucan, an immune-boosting vitamin. Wellmune® is clinically proven to help improve general immune health, maintain overall physical health, protect against the harmful effects of stress, and promote healthy energy levels and mental clarity.
Make sure you’re getting the proper nutrition all other areas of your diet. Try to eat fruits, vegetables, and healthy fats every day to maintain a healthy, balanced diet. If you’re fueling your body properly, you’ll be able to get outside more often, and we know a life outside is good for the soul.
One thing you can do to boost your body’s immunity that doesn’t require eating or drinking is letting your body rest. Getting enough sleep is just as important to your overall health and wellness as the food you eat. Make sure you’re getting a solid 7-8 hours of sleep each night to keep your body in peak performance. A solid night’s sleep will give your body and mind time to recharge and repair itself. A well-rested body is ready to take on any adventure and get outdoors.
Our FUEL Immune Health hydration powder stick packs will help give your immune system the extra boost it needs to stay healthy. When you feel sluggish and weighed-down by dehydration or sleep deprivation, your outdoor activities will suffer. Our line of FUEL Hydration products are designed to help you “Feel Better, Get Outside” so you can take on the day and enjoy your outdoor lifestyle. Add the FUEL Immune Health hydration powder stick packs to your daily routine to give your body a better defense against the viruses that threaten to sideline your passions.
