How to Optimize Immune Function For Adults

The struggle is real, ladies.

Corona virus: so life-changing.

Most importantly, how to optimize immune function to avoid getting sick?!

The corona virus has been a game changer for all of us. There’s so much to wrap our heads around: finding the food we need, sudden/unexpected home schooling (!), working from home, etc etc. 

It’s a lot to manage but I can at least help with one thing:

How to optimize your immune function!  Here’s my ‘adult version’ of how to optimize immunity:

  • The foods to emphasize
  • The supplements I take and recommend
  • Where to get them (at a discount from a quality source).

Also, please don’t forget to pass this on to a friend and to leave a positive review.  Let’s the get word out to more empowered women!
