We’ve got winter-warmer ideas to keep you well this season! From stylish layers through to soup, and even how our products can fit into your healthy lifestyle during winter.

Layer Up

The more skin that’s exposed, the colder you’ll feel. Plus, it can look stylish layering up. It’s time to get out the thermals, scarves and beanies.

Eat Well and Drink Warm

Soups and stews are great for warming you from the inside out! Eating nutritious foods like fruit and vegetable will also help to ward off colds and flues.

Get Moving

It might be the last thing you want to do when it feels like five degrees outside, but it’s going to get your blood pumping and heat you up!

Snuggle Up

Save on the power bill by snuggling up with a cosy blanket, hot water bottle, onesie and bed socks (and don’t tell me you don’t own fluffy, atrociously coloured bed socks). You might even get some warm fuzzies from knowing you’re doing your bit for the environment by not blasting your heater on full.

If you can find a person or pet to snuggle – even better.

Tips to Heat Your Home

So, you’ve layered, you’ve eaten all the soup, you’ve moved and you’ve snuggled. It’s time to heat up the house. Here are the best ways to ensure you’re heating your home efficiently.

  1. Block unused chimneys and draughts from windows and doors.
  2. Open curtains to let the sun in, and then close them when the sun goes down to keep the heat in.
  3. If your home feels damp and cold, use a dehumidifier. Humidity makes your home hospitable to allergens like mould, mildew and dust mites, which can cause allergic reactions, asthma and other health issues.

Immunity Supplements

On top of eating a nutritious diet to keep yourself healthy, supplements can give your immune system an extra boost. Multi-vitamins and antioxidants can help you get the essential in, plus these winter essentials are designed to help your immune system work at its best!

Probiotics

You probably know that probiotics promote gut health, but they’re also packed with lesser-known benefits, like strengthening immune health!

More immune cells are concentrated in the gut than in any other region of the body. Friendly bacteria are vital to supporting your immune system!

Vitamin C

You’ve probably been told you should take vitamin C to prevent getting sick, and that’s not bad advice! It can help boost immune function, but only if you take it before getting sick.

Vitamin C is critical for a properly functioning immune system, and if you’re not getting enough regularly, you could be more likely to get sick.

USANA has two supplements with vitamin C – Proflavanol and Poly C.

Proflavanol® C100 provides superior antioxidant protection with a synergistic blend of grape seed extract and Poly C™, while Poly C is USANA’s vitamin C supplement with a unique blend of mineral ascorbates.

Zinc

This essential mineral acts like an antioxidant in the body, and helps to keep the immune system working at its peak.

This is why USANA’s Proglucamune contains it! Proglucamune contains a certified organic blend of medicinal mushrooms (reishi and shiitake), combined with a unique zinc formula to help boost immunity by strengthening your immune cells.

You can find out more about USANA supplements or purchase from the USANA Shop today!
