Winter Wellness: 3 Plant-Based Ingredients to Stay Healthy

Winter can be one of the most challenging times of the year, especially in sunny South Africa. Allergies, flues, and even the winter blues have kicked in across family households.

Yes, colder conditions can negatively impact your physical and mental health, but several essential plant-based nutrients can help you and your family stay healthy throughout the cold weather season.

As family wellness consultants, we've recently discovered a new product range that harnesses the power of plant-based goodness (100% plants, no chemicals, no shortcuts) that's safe to use for the whole family. In addition, they contain three of our favourite immune-booster ingredients: Vitamin C, Curcumin, and Vitamin D3 -- and here's why we love them.

Vitamin C

Did you know? Vitamin C is an essential vitamin, meaning your body can't produce it. Still, it is linked to many health benefits like boosting your blood antioxidant levels, reducing the risk of heart disease, improving iron absorption, and strengthening your skin's defence system.

Vit-C rich foods include a variety of fruits and vegetables, including oranges, bell peppers, broccoli, kale, and spinach.

Want to boost your family's intake of Vitamin C this winter? We recommend you try Vitamin C nano drops, a plant-based Vitamin C solution that's also enhanced with Zinc.

Have you heard about curcumin? This potent immune booster is the main active ingredient in turmeric (the yellow spice). It's been used for thousands of years and has become known for its powerful anti-inflammatory effects and as a powerful antioxidant.

Because it's not possible to harness all the anti-inflammatory properties of curcumin just by spicing up your meals, we recommend a daily shot of Curcumin tonic, a liquid formula, for the whole family (Great in smoothies or orange juice!). It balances the body's alkalinity, protects growing muscles, joints, and tissue, and boosts the immune system.

Vitamin D3

A must during the dark winter months when sun exposure is limiting. Some call Vitamin D the feel-good happy vitamin, as it is what gets produced in the body when we spend time in the sun. Vitamin D supports the growth and development of bones and teeth and helps fight off certain diseases.

Give your family their daily dose of Vitamin D by using a Vitamin D micro-mist with a fresh minty aftertaste. The best part is that it also maintains good teeth/gum health and freshens breath.
