  • Take immune-supporting nutrients like a good B Complex and Zinc 
  • Exercise a little each day – even just a walk improves immunity
  • Find ways to relieve your stress
  • Work on your weight to remain at a good, constant weight
  • Worth repeating – take plenty of vitamin C daily to avoid oxidative stress.
