How to Strengthen Immune Defenses
Summer is over and Autumn is knocking the door, so better to get ready for it with some easy tips to Boost the Immune System. Be prepared for the season and start to build a strong front-line winter defense from now.
1. Olive Leaf Extract
Since Egyptian times Olive leaf extract has been traditionally used to support the immune system and relieve symptoms of colds, flu, sore throats and upper respiratory tract infections. Why? The secret lies on the fact that the Olive Leaf is rich in Antioxidants such as polyphenol which act as free-radical scavengers; free radicals are responsible for weaker immune system and inflammation.
Our Olive leaf extract, thanks to the presence of Oleuropein, a powerful antioxidant with five times more antioxidant activity than the equivalent amount of Vitamin C. You will only need to drink 70 ml every morning, pure or added to your smoothie. It will help to boost your immune system and to maintain a general wellbeing.

Moreover they are rich in vitamins and minerals which help to build a strong immune system. What do we suggest? Broccoli, kale, spinach, apples and Oranges into every meal.
3. Don' forget lemons
