Boost your recovery from illness

Are you recovering from one of the many sicknesses that are doing the rounds? Here are some tips to help you get back to full health as quickly as possible. 

Firstly, pay attention to your diet. Some foods have beneficial properties and will speed recovery. These anti-inflammatory foods include foods containing omega-3 fatty acids (such as salmon, nuts, seeds and eggs), fresh colourful fruit and veg, whole grains, lean protein (Fish, eggs, organic unprocessed meat, lentils and beans), healthful fats such as olive oil, flax or Udos ultimate oil blend which contains omega-3,6 and 9 fatty acids, and also try to use spices – especially turmeric, blackpepper and ginger. 

TerraNova Life Drink is an excellent choice to supplement your diet to speed recovery. It is bursting with nutritious superfoods. A Life Drink smoothie contains vitamins and minerals as well as omega oils, probiotics, fibre, antioxidants, beta glucans, carotenoids, chlorophyll and digestive enzymes. It is excellent used on its own or alongside a good multivitamin.

The TerraNova range also includes vitamin and mineral formulas which are targeted to individual needs including Living Woman, Living Man, Living Sport, Prenatal and Green Child.

70% of your immune system is in your gut. If you’ve been on antibiotics you need to replenish your beneficial gut bacteria so a  course of probiotics is essential. Udos Super 8s, stored in the fridge, contain 42 billion ‘friendly’ bacteria and Vitamin C, this is a very high dose to quickly restore your microflora. There are non-refrigerated probiotics like Biokult, Optibac and Alforex that are very good to keep your immune system healthy on a daily basis.  Call in to see us in New Leaf in Kanturk or Charleville to find the best fit for you.
