When the pharmacist recently suggested I get a flu shot, I respectfully declined. I believe in building up the immune system, not injecting potentially toxic substances into my body. Of course, I always recommend people do their own research and come to their own conclusions regarding anything medical.
It’s important to build up your immune system so your body can fight off colds and the flu. You can do this easily by choosing healthy, nutrient dense foods and drinks.
I love supplements like Collagen powder and this powder from Sufficient C. It gives you 4,000 mg of Vitamin C which is something our bodies require.
Vitamin C not only boosts the immune system but it treats the common cold, lowers blood pressure, helps cure cataracts, vitamin c helps prevent several types of cancers, aids in healing, boosts the absorption of iron, taking Vitamin C helps prevent Alzheimer’s and is an antioxidant that fights oxidative stress.

You might not have a basket of fruit laying around to dig into so keeping this product on hand is a quick and easy way to get your dose of C.
This non-GMO (yay!) powder mixes with water to create a delicious drink. Not only do you get your vitamin C, this also contains immune system boosting L-lysine and anti-inflammatory Bromelain plus pure green tea extract. I love it! You can even add it to juices and smoothies if you want or get fancy and make cocktails out of it. The flavor is super tasty and not too sweet (there’s a little organic stevia in there).
You can find out lots more by going to the official Sufficient C website here.
