Page 16 | Abby's Magazine | Elderberry If I had to choose just one herb to recommend for supporting immune health it would absolutely be elderberry. Anecdotally, I have seen how elderberry can keep colds at bay, which is no surprise as elderberry's immune benefits have been used for centuries in herbal medicine and are now supported by scientific research. I find myself often turning to the Elderberry Force herbal supplement from New Chapter that is made from potent Black Elderberry and Black Currants for comprehensive immune support that can be used all year round. I also love their new Elderberry Syrup, which activates the immune defense with Black Elderberry extract concentrated 64x! It's sweetened with honey to help soothe the throat and can be used by adults and kids (4+). * Vitamin C Vitamin C is a potent antioxidant that helps to support your body's natural immune response by aiding in the fight against oxidative stress and free radicals. While there are many vitamin C products you can choose from, I personally prefer the Activated C Food Complex from New Chapter, which has been fermented to improve absorption and digestion, and is combined with other complimentary herbs for immune support. * Probiotic All Flora Our gut health is directly connected to our immune health, which means that when our gut health is compromised so is our immune response. This is why I believe that using the right high-quality probiotics to support and improve your gut health can be one of the most important factors keeping your immune system functioning at its best. But not all probiotics are created equal and it is important to know what to look for before choosing the best option for you. I personally love using the Probiotic All Flora from New Chapter, which provides two types of clinical strength flora (bacterial and yeast) that help support healthy balance in the gut microbiome and can improve immune health, regularity, reduce gas and bloating, and improve diarrhea/ constipation related symptoms. Vitamin D Many people are chronically deficient in vitamin D, especially those who live in darker/ colder climates, where they may experience very little sun exposure for 4-6 months of the year. Vitamin D affects our bodies' immune response and helps to modulate the innate and adaptive immune systems, which is why vitamin D deficiency has been linked to an increased risk of infection. Before starting a vitamin D supplement, it is always important to get your baseline levels checked by your doctor, so you know V I T A M I N S & S U P P L E M E N T S *This statement has not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration.
