With all the news recently about the importance of washing your hands and staying away from sick people, you may be wondering what you can do to help bolster your immune system since you can’t always guarantee that you won’t be around someone who’s sick. Washing your hands often, not touching your face with unwashed hands, and keeping a distance from others, especially those who are coughing or sneezing is all good advice. However, you can’t always tell who is sick, and the average person touches their face around 23 times an hour without realizing it. So, your immune system may benefit from some extra nutritional support. In this week’s episode we’ll discuss some supplements that are immune system must-haves, and how they can help give your body the nutrients it needs to stay healthy.
