The CDC Estimates more than 1.5 million people have already contracted influenza this season. 730 of those cases have turned deadly including 2 children.

The South, including Tennessee and Alabama are feeling the worst effects.

While Vitamin C and Vitamin D can’t keep you from getting a cold or the flu they can support your body's immune system health to help fight infection.

You can find Vitamin C in many fruits and vegetables including:

  • Citrus fruits
  • Tomatoes
  • Potatoes
  • Strawberries
  • Green and red bell peppers
  • Broccoli
  • Brussel sprouts and more

Antioxidant Foods


Eat them raw or cooked but it’s important to remember that fruits and vegetables lose vitamin C when they are stored for a long time. To get the most out of them, eat them as soon as possible after shopping and even steam them for short periods of time to avoid nutrient loss.

A reliable Vitamin C supplement can be helpful as Vitamin C isn’t made by the body but is necessary for overall health. Many people worry about the absorption of Vitamin C as well so combining it with Magnesium can improve bioavailability and also help boost immune health at the same time.

Boomer Products Vitamin C plus Magnesium provides high quality ascorbic acid and Magnesium to increase absorption and maximize health benefits.

Vitamin D plays an active role for your immune system health. Vitamin D turns on essential peptides in your immune system that trigger a strong anti-microbial response, allowing you to fight off invaders before they can develop into infections effectively.

Sunshine for Vitamin D


An Estimated 57% of Adults in the United States have Severe Vitamin D-3 deficiencies, and in areas with minimal sun exposure, these estimates can be as high as 90%.

The Best Form of Vitamin of D-3 is Sunlight. However, most people cannot get enough exposure to sunlight to provide them with adequate levels of D-3, and living in a sunny climate does not guarantee vitamin D-3 creation.

The elderly are more prone to this deficiency since their capacity to activate vitamin D in the skin is reduced as we age.

Boomer Products Vitamin D3 is available in 5000 IU gel caps and can help you get the Vitamin D that you may not be getting.

Make sure you use supplements as directed and if you have any questions consult with your physician.
