According to a recent report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the flu continues to spread quickly across the country and many of us are looking for ways to boost our immune systems to hopefully keep the virus away. An Examiner article, “Beating the flu: How exercise improves our immune response,” suggests that regular exercise may decrease the chances of catching the flu.
Of course there is also the fundamental step to ward off the flu – hydration. The Institute of Medicine recommends men and women to drink about 11-16 cups of fluids per day. Luckily our member companies offer myriad beverage options to help keep you hydrated – from 100 percent juices to boost your immune system to bottled water and antioxidant-rich teas.
