Magnesium helps to turn the food we eat into energy. It also helps to support the parathyroid glands, which produce the hormones important for bone health.
Thyme extract is also a helpful herb for supporting the upper respiratory tract. Liz’s whole family enjoys a couple of spoonfuls of both elderberry syrup and thyme extract every morning as a bug-busting regime.
Another botanical worth adding into your daily regime is olive leaf extract. As well as supporting the immune system, studies suggest that olive leaf extract may be helpful for heart health. It also helps to regulate blood sugars.

Lab research shows that zinc can stop some viruses from multiplying. It may also help shorten the duration of a common cold. Given the immune-supporting properties of zinc, it seems sensible to ensure we have plenty in our daily diet. These are the chewable tablets or lozenges Liz has with her at the moment.
Fish oils + Vitamin D3
Liz particularly likes the fish oil supplements. These contain high-quality omega-3 oils that are sustainably sourced. Additionally, each supplement also contains the NHS recommended daily amount of vitamin D3 added to each capsule.
Vitamin D plays an important role in modulating our innate and adaptive immune responses. Not getting enough increases our susceptibility to infection. Another of Liz’s favourite Vitamin D brands is BetterYou where you can purchase with a 15% discount using code LIZLOVES at checkout.
This vitamin is another super useful antioxidant nutrient. It works to support and enhance the efficiency of vitamin D and also helps support the immune system by protecting macrophages (white blood cells).
