Did you know that flu season peaks between the months of October & February?
That means we are entering the full swing of flu season and now is the time to be sure you are taking extra measures that will keep you and your family all clear of nasty flu-causing germs.
Some of the most common groups who are at the highest risk of getting the flu are:
- Children younger than 5
- Adults 65 years and older
- Pregnant woman
- Nursing home residents
So basically… a lot of people! And probably a lot of folks you know fall into this group. So let’s go over some ways that you can protect yourself, your friends, and your family from the flu without the help of chemical-packed products.
Organic raw apple cider vinegar (ACV) - how can it help?!
By drinking one tablespoon of organic apple cider vinegar a day, you create an alkaline balance in your body. Why does this matter? When your body has a balanced alkaline environment, your body is able to help kill bacteria and viruses, including the influenza virus.
There are many ways the flu is transmitted between an infected individual and a healthy one:
- Coughing & Sneezing
- Handshakes & Hugs
- Kissing & Sharing drinks
- Contaminated surfaces, doorknobs, faucets - basically anything shared in an office environment!
Taking care of our bodies is one element of protecting yourself from the flu, but what else can you do? Black+Berry Living have some chemical-free solution that can help!
- Organic raw ACV can kill up to 98% of harmful germs and bacteria while leaving probiotics and healthy bacteria behind.
