Influenza virus, simply known as flu, is a highly contagious respiratory illness. The severity of flu can range from mild to severe conditions.
The flu season in Singapore usually occurs between December and February and from May to July. While it is almost impossible to avoid the influenza virus, there are many methods that help minimise exposure, boost immunity, and reduce the risk of infection.
One of the best ways to combat this viral illness is to get vaccinated each year, but healthy habits such as practicing good hygiene and taking Nature’s Glory Flu Immunity Pack can also help increase your defence against flu.
Those are just some of the many ways you can strengthen your defence against the influenza virus. In this article, we will share simple tips that you can easily practice everyday to protect yourself and others from flu.
Preventing Flu with Healthy Habits and Flu Immunity Pack
Prevention is always better than cure when it comes to fighting the flu virus. Here are proven ways to minimize your risk from the virus:
Avoid close contact – Keep a distance from people who are sick. Conversely, when you are sick, keep your distance from others to avoid the spread of your illness.
Stay at home when you are sick – If you are feeling ill, you should not go to work or attend class. Staying home allows your body to recuperate properly and quickly, as well as prevent your illness from spreading to others.
Practice proper handwashing – The best way to fight the spread of infection is by hand washing. Keep your hands clean from bacteria, viruses, and germs by washing your hands for 20 seconds. If water and soap are unavailable, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
Consume immune-boosting foods – A healthy immune system is your best defence against flu. With that being said, it is vital to eat a balanced diet daily. Incorporate immune-boosting foods like oranges, ginger tea, blueberries, Greek yoghurt, tomatoes, wild salmon, broccoli, and eggs in your meals to strengthen your defence against flu and other illnesses.
Take immune-boosting supplements – At Nature’s Glory, we have rounded up our best antiviral, antioxidant, and antimicrobial supplements in a single collection called the Flu Immunity Pack. The Flu Immunity Pack contains five certified organic supplements: Nature’s Glory Plum Balls, Nature’s Glory Propolis Balls, Nature’s Glory Garlic Balls, Vitality C, and Nature’s Glory Squalene.
What is the Flu Immunity Pack?
In addition to practicing healthy preventive habits, we also encourage you to consume organic, food-based supplements to strengthen your immune system further.
Plum Balls - Nature’s Glory Plum Balls are a mixture of wild mountain yam and concentrated juice of Japanese Ume, which has more nutritional properties than Taiwanese and Chinese variants of plum. Dubbed as the “Blue Diamond Fruit” and “King of Alkaline Food,” plum is a staple in every Japanese household because it offers a wide array of health benefits. Plums contain sources of iron, calcium, citric acid, protein, and phosphorus that help normalise blood pH, strengthen digestive system, improve liver function, and relieve digestive problems.
Propolis Balls – Packed with antibiotic, antibacterial, antioxidant, and antiseptic properties, our propolis balls are developed using bee pollen extracts, ume plum concentrate, vitamin C, and honey. These supplements help boost the immune system and relieve skin disorders.
Garlic Balls – Known as nature’s super detoxifier, our garlic balls contain sulphur or allicin substances that contribute to its antibacterial and anti-inflammatory effects. Garlic balls can help prevent respiratory problems, digestive problems, and liver conditions.
Vitality C – This vitamin C supplement is a high potency, non-acidic supplement that can be mixed with water or your favorite beverage. This supplement helps reduce oxidative stress caused by free radicals.
Squalene – Derived from shark liver oil, Squalene contains a chemical formula C30H50, an unsaturated hydrocarbon oil that supplies cells with oxygen. Increased oxygen production helps normalise cholesterol levels, relieve inflammation, and boost the immune system.
