Boost your Immune System in Summer

Looking to boost your immune system in summer is probably the last thing on your mind. When summer arrives, we want to be outside enjoying the sunshine. At the beach or in the park with family and friends, we definitely do not want to be cooped up in bed sick with the summer flu!

Why does it happen? A change in season or the weather can lead to a weakened resistance to germs.

What can you do to boost your immune system in Summer?

Absorb enough Vitamin D!

In Queensland, Australia where our Organic Olive Plantation is located – It is known as the Sunshine State. We have over 255 days of Sunshine. What that means is, we are typically smothering ourselves in SPF50+ to protect ourselves against the suns’ harmful rays and potentially blocking Vitamin D from being absorbed. Find ways to make sure you’re getting enough – this could include supplementing with Vitamin D capsules.
