Supplements: Back to School, Sickness, Daily Wellness

Heading back to school always makes me double check what we are taking and make sure all supplements are in stock in my cupboard.

Besides the obvious of good hand washing and avoiding people who are sick. It's nearly impossible to stay away from germs at school. So we do the best we can at home to start the day out with good health. 

So we load up on Shaklee Nutrition. Keep in mind, I am not a doctor or a health expert, I'm just simply sharing information based on what I do and what my family takes. It works for us, so I'm passing on the good work about what I think are the best products out there.

  1. I cannot fully agree with you, since I never use supplements! Speaking about Interferon, it is perhaps crucial to healthy immune function. However, it is highly recommended to consult with the specialist before your start consuming it.
