Boost Your Immunity with Supplements for Flu Prevention!


Flu season is here, and we've got your back with some supplement suggestions to help you stay healthy and resilient.


  • Vitamin C: This powerhouse vitamin is known for its immune-boosting properties. Consider adding vitamin C supplements to your daily routine to support your body's defense system.

  • Vitamin D: Many of us don't get enough sunlight, especially during the colder months. Vitamin D supplements can help maintain a strong immune system.

  • Zinc: Zinc is essential for immune function. Adding a zinc supplement may help your body fight off those pesky flu viruses.

  • Echinacea: This herbal supplement is believed to stimulate the immune system and reduce the severity and duration of cold and flu symptoms.

  • Probiotics: A healthy gut contributes to a robust immune system. Probiotic supplements can help maintain a balanced gut microbiome.

  • Elderberry: Elderberry supplements are rich in antioxidants and may help reduce the severity and duration of flu symptoms.


Remember, supplements are meant to complement a balanced diet and healthy lifestyle, not replace them. Consult with a healthcare professional before starting any new supplement regimen, especially if you have underlying health conditions or take medications.


As Naturopathic Doctors, we can provide individualized recommendations for herbs with anti-microbial properties (e.g. anti-bacterial, anti-viral, anti-fungal/yeast) or for symptomatic support (for relief of coughs, sore throats, etc.)
