Nothing is more derailing than a case of the sniffles or sneezes, and this is the time of year when everyone seems to be under the weather. But you don’t need to fight seasonal sickness lying down (literally). Instead, take a proactive stance by eating well and supplementing smartly all year round. For optimal results, consider natural options sourced from whole foods to receive the best nourishment possible.


3 Ways to Support Your Body's Defenses

Some great options for natural immune support include:

  1. Oh Say Can You C.

Vitamin C is everyone’s go-to vitamin for immune support. When you don’t have time to eat a bunch of oranges, check out MegaFood’s Ultra C-400, which actually is created directly from real oranges, as well as other whole foods including parsley, carrot and beet root. A 400 mg dose of Ultra C also contains herbs for added nourishment. This supplement also supports healthy inflammatory response.*

Another option to consider is a vitamin C complex. Sourced from seasonal and freshly harvested whole oranges, Megafood Complex C delivers a powerful antioxidant formula, offering both immune support and anti-aging properties. This supplement stands out because it is enriched with a bioflavonoid complex. A blend of amla fruit, rosehips, green pepper, and orange peel, this supplement works naturally to enhance and prolong the effects of vitamin C on the body. Complex C also promotes healthy cell and tissue functions. Unlike many other C supplements on the market, this gentle vitamin can even be taken without food – because it is food!*

Not a big fan of tablets? Daily C-Protect Boost is designed for smoothie or juice fanatics—just mix the powder (free of sweeteners or preservatives) into your favorite liquid with a healthy jolt of vitamin C and immune-supporting botanicals. The ingredients are whole, organic foods like oranges, blueberries, and cranberries.*

  1. The Power of Probiotics

Many of us think of probiotics as a supplement for digestive health, but did you know that these same supplements may also help maintain a healthy immune system? A whole-food-based blend of 14 probiotics including Lactobacillus acidophilus, Lactobacillus bulgaricus and Lactobacillus rhamnosus, MegaFlora helps promote nutrient absorption, supporting vitality and well-being.*

  1. D-Fense!

Vitamin D is known for being a strong promoter of bone heath, but it also contributes to the proper functioning of your immune system. We like MegaFood’s Vitamin D3 2000 IU because it contains the preferred form of vitamin D (D3) and is easy to digest, even on an empty stomach.*
