Prepare for the Flu-Season!

Are you dreading the upcoming season of runny noses and watery eyes? Then we have a great tip for you: if you want to strengthen your immune system in fall, you should think about your nutrition. Studies show that especially vitamins A, C, E and beta carotene, but also the trace elements zinc and selenium as well as secondary plant extracts play a key role in fighting off colds and flu. These micro-nutrients activate the immune cells, stimulate the formation of antibodies and also influence the production of natural killer cells. So remember to add plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables to your daily menu! Citrus fruits, kiwi, sea buckthorn and rose hips are nutritious vitamin C provider. Sauerkraut and green bell pepper also contain many vitamins to support a healthy immune system.

This is a pity because almond oil has a high content of vitamin A, is soft and velvety and almost tasteless and odorless. When buying please pay attention to cold pressing and purity.
