The summer is drawing to a close, school is back in session, and it’s time to turn an eye toward the fast-approaching fall and winter seasons. While you may know that fall and winter months are a great time for annual upkeep procedures, like facial rejuvenation, you might not think of turning to your cosmetic specialist to help you ward off a cold or flu.
You should know, however, that products like BioTE supplements can help with more than just common symptoms of aging. BioTE natural hormone therapy can help you to cope with the symptoms of menopause, diabetes, anxiety, and more, thanks to treatment plans tailor-made for your needs. The right supplements can also boost your immune system well in advance of the cold, dry conditions that contribute to the spread of illness.
Which BioTE products are right for you, and how can they help to bolster your immunity and protect against colds and flus? Here are a few things you should know about the benefits of BioTE supplements.
Optimal health is hard to quantify, but you know your body, and you know the difference between feeling like you’re at the top of your game and feeling run down. Diindolylmethane, or DIM, is a phytochemical our bodies glean from the digestion of certain vegetables, but it also comes in the form of a supplement.
The BioTE DIM supplement also contains vitamin E, phosphatidylcholine, and silica. What does this product do for your body? The quality ingredients enhance the bioavailability, or absorption by the body, of certain substances, which is why it’s often taken with BioTE bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT).
DIM also interacts with the immune system. Although more research on DIM is needed, this chemical compound can play a role in modulating immune response, potentially helping to fight both viral and bacterial threats, according to the DIM Resource Center. If you’re worried about cold and flu season this year, consider adding this BioTE supplement to your regimen.
The more we learn about the microbiome, or the system of bacteria in the gut, the more we understand the pivotal role gut health plays in overall health. Probiotics are live bacteria and yeasts that, when ingested, help to bolster “good” bacteria in your gut to support optimal digestive health. This not only helps you to absorb nutrients and filter out toxins, but it could contribute to your overall health in a variety of ways, including maintaining a strong immune system.
The BioTE Probiotic supplement contains lactobacillus acidophilus, lactobacillus rhamnosus, and bifidobacterium logurn. When your gut is healthy, you can more easily digest and absorb nutrients while protecting your body against toxins. This, in turn, helps to regulate immune function and ward off viruses and bacteria like cold and flu bugs, especially those that you may ingest.
It’s not always easy to know which supplements are safe and effective. Dr. Beverly Fischer can help by offering recommendations for BioTE products that will help you to cope with a variety of symptoms and give your immune system a boost.
