Traveling Soon? You Need These Supplements To Stay Healthy – InVite Health Podcast, Episode 231
Invite Health Podcast, Episode hosted by Amanda Williams, MPH
Traveling for business or pleasure right now is certainly a riskier thing to be doing, but sometimes, it is required and you don’t have a choice. You have to go out for business. You have to travel perhaps to see a family member who is not well. We certainly recognize that in doing so, you want to make sure that you are well-prepared. We are into cold and flu season, plus still dealing with the pandemic, so I want to go into some different little tips for you as to how best to travel safely with your supplements and what supplements you should make sure you are including.
Whether you’re traveling or not, but especially if you are traveling, you want to make sure that your immune system is prepared and that if you do have any type of exposure to the common cold, flu or COVID-19, your immune system is at the ready.†
Basics for immune support while traveling
We always want to think, first and foremost, about really simple things we know we can do each and every single day. This includes staying hydrated and making sure that we are taking in adequate fruits and vegetables every single day to bolster up our antioxidants. But we also have to think about other nutrients.
One in particular that comes to mind is the Immunity Hx. The reason why I hone in on the Immunity Hx is that it is so easy for you to incorporate in. So, if you know that you have to travel in the next month or so, the Immunity Hx is a blend, packed into one single tablet per day, of Vitamin C, Vitamin D and zinc. Why are those so important? Because those are kind of like the glue that holds our immune system together. When we think about the important role that vitamins and minerals play, the micronutrients and the macronutrients that are an integral part of immune defenses, then taking a supplement such as the Immunity Hx can really be incredibly supportive.†
We also want to make sure our microbiome is healthy while traveling. Remember, 70% of our immune system is gut-based, meaning that a majority of our immune defenses are coming from the intestines. If we can make sure that we have good, healthy bacteria that are circulating and helping us with the proper absorption of the nutrients that we’re taking in from our food and supplements, then those probiotic, those healthy little bacteria, play a really incredibly important role into our immune defenses. Probiotic Hx is a good option for you during these times.†
Nucleotides are also very important. Within the double helix of our DNA, we have these nucleic acids or base pairs. What the Nucleotide Complex supplementation is is those direct nucleic acids, which is really important because when we think about areas where we have to have good, healthy cell turnover, there’s no place more important than our intestines. Providing the body with those nucleic acids helps to enhance the immune system’s ability to strengthen up and fend things off.†
