We all know as moms how difficult it is to keep your children germ free, especially once they start school! Children love to share germs so how do you keep them healthy and their immune systems on high alert? Regular hand washing, adequate rest and a healthy dose of activity is a good place to start, but to put up a good fight their immune systems may need more.
“Germs generally only lead to illness when the body is out of balance and immunity is weakened. Simply put, supplementing your child’s diet with additional natural nutrients play a crucial role in supporting the immune system and are needed as the basis for avoiding nasty flu bugs.” ~ PharmaChoice spokesperson, pharmacist, Liezl van Tonder.
“The fact is that schools are ‘danger zones’ for potentially infectious bacteria and viruses, causing more than 20-million school days lost due to the common cold. When their immune systems are robust and the viral exposure is relatively limited, they shrug off any attacks,” she adds. “But when the viral contact is repeated and the flu is ‘going around’, or when their immune systems are compromised, they succumb, and get a cold or flu.” ~ Liezl van Tonder
As parent we like to belive that our child get all the necessary vitamins and minerals from their diet but in many instances this is not the case! The easiest way to boost your child’s immune system, is by giving them a supplement containing immune boosters like ViralChoice Junior. It contains some of the most highly rated ingredients provided by nature such us; Echinacea extract, green tea, rosehip, vitamins A, B6, B12, C, D and E, folic acid, Biotin, Pantothenic acid and Selenium, to help reduce the susceptibility to cold and flu infection.
