With cold and flu season right around the corner, it’s time to start thinking about ways to armor our immune systems for the germy months ahead. One of the best ways to stay healthy all year long is to support a robust immune system even before cold and flu season hits. An excellent way to do that is through the use of adaptogenic herbs. These herbs help to establish homeostasis in the body and provide you with support where you need it the most.
Here are four of the best adaptogenic herbs you can use to fight off the cold and flu.
4 Adaptogenic Herbs to Fight off the Cold & Flu
#1 Ashwagandha: In our Yinergy and Vigor blends, we use KSM-66 ashwagandha at its therapeutic dose which has been found to hold some powerful anti-inflammatory as well as immune balancing health benefits. Taking a potent adaptogenic blend like the ones we offer at Dr. Vim’s is a great way to create a healthy immune system for the cold and flu season ahead.
#2 Cordyceps: Cordyceps is very well known for supporting energy levels and a strong immune system. These are two things we can all use more of during the colder months!
#3 Ginseng: Ginseng is another powerful herb found in our Yinergy blend that offers some immune supporting properties. When taking ginseng during cold and flu season, you may find you get sick less often than others around you.
#4 Holy Basil: Holy basil is great for immune support because it can help promote balance in your overall body. In order to have a robust immune system, you have to balance the health of your overall body as well. Holy basil can help protect the body from chronic stress and is a great tea to sip on during the colder months. Try enjoying a mug of our Tulsi Holy Basil Tea to help prevent the cold and flu this season.
Take action now to start boosting your health and supporting a strong immune system before cold and flu season hits. The sooner you support your immune system with powerful adaptogens, the better you will feel and the better your body will be able to fight any germ that comes your way.
