Building Immune Support this Winter

I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Zarbee’s Naturals. I received a product and a promotional item to thank me for participating.

If the cold isn’t bad enough, winter also brings colds and illness to this house! The past TWO Christmases both kids have been sick and Ryan’s birthday is two days after Christmas and he hasn’t felt too hot during that either—it’s heartbreaking. I am so determined to keep the family healthy this year! I want to enjoy the festive family time, birthdays, and our vacation to CO next week!

building immune support

How do you build immune support to help promote normal immune function? You have your best chances of staving off colds when your immune system is maintained and functioning at its best! So here are my tips on building immune support this winter…

  • SLEEP. I like putting this one on my list and making it a priority ;) But really, being rested and getting enough good quality sleep every night can help build your immune system.
  • Wash your hands. Make sure your kids are doing this, too! Remind them to do it often at school when you aren’t around. It’s especially important after being in public spaces, touching shopping cart handles, doors, pens, gas pumps, etc. Even better? Don’t touch those things—use a paper towel, carry your own pen, or wear gloves.
  • Practice a healthy lifestyle. Those immune system cells that help fight off infection and bad cells? They need to be nourished. Eat and eat healthy. Exercise and stay active.
  • Relax. Holidays can be a stressful time and stress might affect how well your immune system functions. Be optimistic! Tis’ the season to be merry!
  • Take a supplement.  Our go-to is Zarbee’s. We love their natural cough syrups for the kids and their seasonal support, so we were thrilled for their new Immune Support line.

immune support Zarbee's

The line is for infants as young as 2 months up to adult (shown above: infants over 2 months, ages 2+, ages 4+, and ages 12+). Each one is packed with natural ingredients—important vitamins and minerals—to help build your immune system when you need it most. No drugs, no alcohol, no artificial dyes. Dr. Zak, pediatrician and founder of Zarbee’s, says “studies link deficiencies in zinc and vitamins A, C, D and E to reduced immune function, so it’s best to ensure your child is getting the immune-boosting vitamins, minerals and nutrients they need with a quality supplement.”

Immune Support

Natural ingredients in the Zarbee’s Immune Support line of products include:

Elderberry: clinically proven to support a strong immune system
Vitamins A, C, D, E: play a number of roles in promoting normal immune function
Echinacea: one of the most popular supplements in the U.S., which has long been used to promote overall health
Zinc: helps maintain and bolster the immune system

We use Mighty Bee Gummy Immune Support for our kids with a concentrated burst of Elderberry, Zinc, and Vitamin C. They’re a special treat the kids get so they’re excited to eat them (they’re just like fruit snacks). And we’re excited to give them because the kids are getting an immune boost when they’re most susceptible!

Zarbee's Immune Support Gummy

When the kids went back to school this year, they both got sick right away. I immediately got the Zarbee’s Immune Support to be more proactive the rest of this season and I am HOPING (knock.on.wood.) we will be good to go! So far so good.

Find a store near you where you can buy Zarbee’s. You can also follow them for more great tips on Twitter and Facebook!

Holiday fashions with OshKosh B’gosh (coupon)

I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for OshKosh B’gosh. I received product samples to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.

There are three main reasons OshKosh B’gosh is always one of my go-to brands for our kids: it’s quality clothing that’s durable and affordable, it’s always age appropriate (0-12), and it’s CUTE. I wore OshKosh when I was litte—I remember my mom saving to shop at OshKosh B’gosh and outfits from there were a special treat! We still have some
