immune system

Hi All.

It's getting to be cold season again! Lots of my athletes, friends and family are coming down with the first good head cold of the season. If you want to avoid these nasty little bugs, here are a few hints:
> SLEEP - try to get to bed and sleep for as close to 8 hours as you can as often as possible. If you have trouble sleeping, exercise!

> EAT - get your fruits and veggies. They provide the mirconutrients that keep your immune system 'topped up'.

> HYDRATE - keep the water coming to maintain a top notch immune system.

> Multivitamin and vitamin C - best brands are Shaklee and Usana. Take the recommended amount to keep your system at it's best.

> Wash your hands - obvious, but we skip it all the time.
