Yoga is a great way to combat germs and illness, but if you still find yourself fighting the flu or warding off a virus, you may need to take a closer look at your diet. Certain vitamins and minerals play a huge part in beefing up our immune systems and guarding against unwanted sickness. When a healthy diet is combined with physical activity, those germs don’t stand a chance!
Here's is a list of the top immune-boosting vitamins and minerals and their food sources, as well as a flu-fighting recipe that incorporates them all!
I thankful for my yoga mat
For giving me a place to "get away"
I am thankful for my Yogitoes
So in my sweat, I don't have to lay
I am thankful for my yoga block
My most beloved tool
I am thankful for my water bottle
For keeping me hydrated and cool
I am thankful for the humid heat
As it can cleanse and detoxify
I am thankful for the ceiling fans
For the breeze when I think I will die!
