Combine winter weather and holiday stresses, and you have a recipe for illness.
It’s no wonder that cold and flu season strikes around the holidays. Cold temperatures keep people indoors where germs can spread more easily. Busy holiday planning can lead to stress, which can suppress the immune system.
An answer to the problem of winter illness is balanced living and natural supplementation from AIM.
Two AIM products in particular, AIM FloraFood® and AIM Proancynol® 2000, can help with the unique challenges presented by the coming winter months.
FloraFood contains a special blend of three powerful friendly bacteria—L. gasseri, B. bifidum, and B. longum. These friendly bacteria counteract the unfriendly bacteria in the gut, helping to improve digestive health. Approximately 70 percent of the immune system is in the gut, so it’s important to maintain a healthy level of intestinal flora.
In addition to their digestive health properties, these probiotics enhance the immune response of the body, manufacture vitamins B and K, and produce antibiotics and antifungals that prevent the growth of harmful bacteria.
Proancynol 2000 is AIM’s antioxidant powerhouse, providing seven antioxidant-rich ingredients: green tea extract, rosemary extract, grape seed extract, N-acetylcysteine, alpha-lipoic acid, lycopene, and selenium. The wide variety of antioxidants from these ingredients work together on many levels, including antioxidant recycling, to achieve an enhanced, combined effect to fight free radicals.
The free-radical-fighting properties of Proancynol 2000 give a big boost to the immune system, especially during the winter months.
I have taken Proancynol 2000 since 2003, and since then, I never had a cold. My daily regimen of AIM products looks like this: in the morning, I take eight AIM BarleyLife® vegetable capsules; at lunch, I take Proancynol and AIM Frame Essentials®; and at night, I take another eight BarleyLife vegetable capsules. I have the good fortune to be healthy all these years of taking AIM products, together with a healthy diet.
