Summer is officially over, and that makes some of us depressed for what’s to come this winter. We need to prepare for allergies, cold/flu, and the back-to-school stomach bugs (already happening here in Ohio!!). It’s officially time to start getting prepared for fall and winter.
As the leaves start to change color, the days get shorter, and snow starts to fall, we get less sun exposure and tend to be less active. Germs are everywhere, and while it is not realistic to always fight them off properly, The Winchester Institute takes pride in being able to offer a complete, holistic way of helping with Chiropractic care, lifestyle recommendations, and supplementation. Certain supplements can play a key role in protecting your health, even when others around you are sick.
Zinc has been clinically proven to reduce the longevity of the common cold and is proven to suppress the virus replication. Taking zinc before or at the onset of feeling sick can reduce your odds of developing a full-blown cold. In a recent study published by Medical News Today, the average number of days it takes for cold symptoms to improve is 10! At The Winchester Institute, our Zinc is of the highest quality. It is tested and standardized for your safety. When the right dose is taken, it helps to reduce a cold coming on and it helps to shorten the length of your cold.
Other supplements that can be important this time of year include: Vitamin D3, a probiotic, Vitamin B complex, and Vitamin C.
Vitamin D3 helps to strengthen the immune system and initiates the body’s response to invaders such as bacteria and viruses.
Probiotic Complete is essential for optimal gut health, brain health, and immune health. With the majority of our immune system in the digestive tract, it is vital to maintain proper gut functioning.
Vitamin C is of the oldest and most tried supplements for the common cold. Vitamin C is an essential vitamin, meaning it is not produced in the body and needs to come from diet and supplementation.
The Winchester Institute also offers a supplement to support against fall and seasonal allergies. Allerplex is a completely natural supplement that assists in the body’s management of mucous, healthy lung, and respiratory function. Allerplex is the best natural answer for allergies, and is available at our office.
Our supplements are of the highest quality and contain no harmful ingredients or undisclosed chemicals. Our Doctors research the best in pharmaceutical-grade supplementation and confidently offer our patients the best products available. Our chosen vendors: Standard Process, Anabolic Labs, and Pure Encapsulations go above and beyond. They have stringent quality-control standards and spend over $3M annually on quality control to confirm the efficacy and purity of all their products. Over-the-counter supplements are minimally regulated and cannot be trusted. Did you know supplements are barely regulated in the U.S? Under current law, supplement manufacturers can make basically any vague health claim about their wares, without needing evidence to back it up. An estimated 70 percent of supplement manufacturers do not follow the most basic labelling requirements.
No matter what, the Chiropractic adjustment is vital to the improvement of the nervous and musculoskeletal systems. In any obstacle we face, different tools are needed to reach our true goal, our most optimal health potential! All products are available in our office, so stop in anytime to pick them up. Don’t forget to ask your Doctor what they specifically recommend for you!
