5 Tips to Boost Your Immunity during the Holidays

December is my most awaited time of the year not only because it is my son and I's birth month but because of Christmas. I really feel giddy with anticipation when the calendar hits the ber months and the weather starts to get cold. Christmas for me is a celebration of love because we celebrate the birth of our savior Jesus Christ who showed us the true meaning of love.

It is the time for sharing our blessings to our loved ones and especially to those who need it the most like victims of calamities, abandoned elders, street children and etc. Christmas is a perfect opportunity to show acts of kindness and compassion.

It is also the time for Christmas parties, family gatherings and reunions. There are lots of people at the mall buying gifts. Traffic becomes heavy because there are lots of places we want to visit.There are lots of things to do that makes everyone excited about Christmas.However this excitement also comes with stress thus one must not get too caught up with the Christmas cheers and forget to take care of themselves. I would like to share these five tips in boosting your energy this Holidays because nobody wants to get sick this season right?

1. Feel happy and be happy in the happiest season of the year!  
Being happy is great on its own but there are also health benefits attributed to it. There are lots of scientific studies attributing health decline because of negative emotions thus steer away from negativity and adopt a positive outlook in life. Do the things that makes you happy like spending quality time with your family and friends and Christmas is the perfect time to bond with them.

2. Exercise daily.

Despite the hectic schedules with Christmas parties, shopping for gifts and practicing for choirs and other activities, we must not forget our daily routines for fitness. We can squeeze in a bit of exercise in our Christmas activities like brisk walking when attending Simbang Gabi or caroling around the neighborhood. You can also walk around the poorest part of the city and distribute toys or gifts to the young and old.  


Christmas parties might end up a little late at night and sometimes even at wee hours of the morning.It is important though that you don't forget to rest. You have to say no sometimes to after party events that could deprive you of sleep. It is still very essential to maintain at least eight hours of sleep to let your body rest and recover your you can attend another party the following day!

4. No to excessive intake of unhealthy food.

This is perhaps the hardest thing to do this Christmas as we are tempted to devour all the delicious food served in various parties. Hello there lechon, spaghetti, patatim and overflowing desserts! That is why I said "excessive" because we don't need to deprive ourselves but we just need to be mindful of our food intakes. It is important to eat a balanced diet by eating the right amount of calories that your body needs and eat a wide range of nutritious food which includes fish, fruits and vegetables.

5.Consume your daily dose of Vitamin C!

Vitamin C , according to experts is one of the safest and most effective nutrients. We can get it from fruits and vegetable but to ensure one meets the daily supplemental need we often take supplements. A good and accessible source of vitamin C is Fern-C

Fern-C is an immune-system booster  because it provides protection against immune system deficiencies. I personally take Fern-C and every time I feel that I am coming down with colds or flu I take 3 to 4 capsules with lots of water and rest. It really works for me and I feel instantly better. For daily use I take one to two capsules.

Fern-C is a potent anti-oxidant. Anti-oxidants are beneficial to the body.It blocks some of the damage caused by free radicals which are substances that damage DNA. The build up of free radicals over time may contribute to the aging process and the development of health conditions such as cancer, heart disease, and arthritis. 

Fern-C contains Sodium Ascorbate. It is composed of Sodium and Vitamin C. Sodium acts as a buffer that creates a less acidic supplement than that of Ascorbic acid.It is bioavailable and “alkaline” which does not cause stomach upsets unlike Ascorbic acid. You can take it on an empty stomach and not feel any acidity.

You can check and follow the below-social Media Accounts or more information on Fern-C.

So don't forget to enjoy the holidays and the 5 tips I shared which is as easy to remember as the initials FERN-C !

Happy Holidays Everyone! :-)
