On Guard!

With the changing weather, cold and flu season is beginning. Help combat the typical ailments by building your immune system with essential oils. Your immune system is what helps keep the body healthy. It consists of tissues, cells, and small organs that produce white blood cells. Without a healthy immune system, you can not defend yourself from potential health threats. Essential oils and nutritional supplements, are able to help boost your immune system when used on a regular basis. 

By adding two to three drops of Oregano, On Guard, Lemon, Maleluca, or Thyme to a veggie capsule or try the On Guard softgels for daily immune support. Taken daily along with a healthy balanced diet, these supplements can be your first line of defense. Your immune system is responsible for protecting you from environmental threats. The first barrier is going to be your skin. It acts as a barrier to keep invaders out. Mucous membranes in your nose, mouth, and throat also protect you. When environmental threats get past all of this, white blood cells kick into action. They find invaders, tag them as harmful, and destroy them. But your immune system is now programmed to attack these invaders automatically whenever you have contact with it again. This means you’ll be able to fight off any infections or ailments even quicker than before. White blood cells are made and stored in various places of the body such as tonsils, thymus, lymph nodes, bone marrow, and spleen. 

Keeping your immune system functioning properly depends on many factors. This includes providing your body with adequate amount of sleep, regular exercise, and a balanced diet. Malnourishment and micronutrient deficiencies may result in altered immune responses and an increased risk for health issues. Supplementing your diet with specific vitamins, minerals, and probiotics may aid in building up and supporting the immune system.
