How I Support My Immune System All Year Long

How are you supporting your immune system right now?

Me? I’ve been soaking up vitamin D outside in small amounts, doing teletherapy to help manage stress + anxiety, eating as much of the rainbow as possible, trying to get frequent movement in, drinking lots of (Berkey) water, getting 8 hours of sleep, and taking all of my immune-supporting supplements. One of the supplements I have been taking for approximately 4 years is LivOn Labs Lypo-spheric Vitamin C, which I originally discovered at an Erewhon pop-up at a Vegan Beer Festival - definitely not the place I'd expect!

Soon after that festival, I began taking it daily, eventually got Jesse (my partner) hooked, then his mom, then my grandma... and we all swear by it with daily use! Did you know our bodies can’t store Vitamin C, because it's water-soluble, so we need a steady influx on a daily basis? There are plenty of foods high in Vitamin C, which you should strive to eat regularly; guava, bell pepper, kiwi, kale, acerola cherries, rose hips, chili peppers, broccoli, brussels sprouts, lemon, oranges, and more. While I try to eat the rainbow, I still take a daily Vitamin C supplement and I prefer lypo-spheric over other types because it’s unique encapsulation protects it from our digestive system, allowing it to be transported into the bloodstream and absorbed by our cells providing way more benefit! I’m a huge science nerd and recommend checking out all of the info behind liposomes on their site because it’s truly amazing how this works.

This is what it looks like... super weird, I know! It doesn’t dissolve in water, so just swirl it and take it like a shot! We take it every morning, first thing after waking up, on an empty stomach. And before LivOn sent me this shot glass, I always took it in one of the small beer glasses I got from the vegan beer festival where I discovered this product!

As you know, I’m all about helping people live their best, healthiest lives, and supporting your immune system is one of the best things you can do all year long. So when LivOn asked if I’d share my experience, I immediately said yes! This is a product I truly believe in and use daily and I want others to know the benefits. No one paid me (although they did send me a couple of boxes for my time, but trust me, we buy our own monthly), I’m honestly just a huge fan and will continue to post about them as I’ve done the past 4 years 😘

p.s. You can buy it directly from them or on Amazon. Let me know if you have any questions!

Stay healthy friends + thanks for reading!
