With the weather getting colder, flu season is also here. So many people are sick these days. As a mom, it is important for me to help my family stay as healthy as possible and to avoid getting sick. Of course, it’s not always avoidable but I try my best to help boost their immune system so they get sick less often. I have been giving my family especially my kids the Acerola juice by Salus since last winter. It was recommend by a naturopathic doctor and also by family our chiropractor. It’s basically a vitamin C juice that helps to boost our immune system.
The Salus Acerola Juice is developed by pharmacist Walther Schoenenberger in Germany. It is naturally rich in vitamin C which supports the immune system. It contains the full range of the plant’s components in their natural balance. It does not have any preservatives, added sugar, colourings and flavourings.
Each winter I have a few regimens to help protect my family from getting sick. I’ll share with you moms later. This juice is definitely one of the things that I feel makes a difference.
You can purchase it at any local health food store such as Nature’s Planet or Nature’s Emporium. It’s about $15 after tax.
Here is some more information on the Salus Acerola juice. It’s taken from their website.
The fruits for our Acerola fresh plant juice grow in northeast Brasil on sandy soil and on trees which are up to 5 meters high – of course in organic cultivation. Acerola is one the fruits with the highest vitamin C levels in the world, it contains 30 times more vitamin C than lemons. Acerola pure fresh plant juice is also suitable for people who are allergic to citrus fruits. Compared to synthetically produced vitamin C the acerola fruit contains other substances in a unique natural composition. This natural composition, according to today’s knowledge, increases the cell-protecting effect of the vitamin C. As the human body cannot produce vitamin C itself, it depends on a sufficient external supply. Under certain circumstances (e.g. common cold, pregnancy and lactation, stress and smoking) the need of vitamin C increases. Vitamin C participates in:
– a normal function of the immune system
– protecting the cells from oxidative stress
– a normal energy metabolism
– the reduction of tiredness and fatigue
– a normal function of the nerve system
– increase of iron absorption
Are there any supplements you give to your family or things you do to help boost their immune in the winter? I’d love to hear from you.
