Bonus tips: 

  1. Increase your Vitamin C intake for increased immune system for viruses and bacteria
  2. Vitamin D3 intake if you have autoimmunity or inflammatory issues. We utilize more D3 in these situations and it is essential for proper immune system function. Click here for the brand I use for best absorption and quality
  3.  Vitamin B complex and magnesium for stress I use this brand. I love this for the best possible absorption and purity and is what my functional medicine doctors recommend.
