Kids’s Astra 8 Immunity Product
The children’s version is the Astra 8 Immune Shield product for immunity can aid in reducing the frequency of children’s colds. Available in a liquid form, it is specially formulated for children and has a delicious blackcurrant flavour which mixes easily with water or in juice. It is sweetened by stevia but contained no added sugar and is suitable for children two and over. Based on the Jade Windscreen Formula which has been used for hundreds of years in traditional Chinese medicine, it contains fresh elderberry juice and zinc for additional immune support. Children do tend to be more prone to the common colds than adults given that they have been exposed less to colds and flus and despite their immune system naturally building when attending day care, kindergarten or school, children are more likely to be exposed to other children with colds. Hence why the Astra 8 immunity product for children contains zinc which reduces the prevalence of colds in children. Zinc is also present in food like meat, poultry, eggs and seafood as well as wholegrains, legumes, nuts and seeds but it depends on the child’s absorption of the food. The Jade Windscreen Formula of the Astra 8 immunity product is traditionally used to help reduce the frequency of colds which is a good attribute to have when it is coming up to winter and we are already in the cooler months across most of Australia. The Astra 8 product for immunity contains Astragalus, White atractylodes and Fang feng, all which help support a healthier immune system and act as an immune shield. Astragalus is a Chinese herb traditionally used to support the defensive Qi, which is the form of energy force that boosts resistance to infections and it can additionally support vitality. Working together with Astragalus is White atractylodes which reinforces the work of the Astragalus while Fang feng aids in clearing wind-heat from the body and is a key ingredient in the Jade Windscreen Formula.
Astragalus Root is one of the leading immune shield Chinese herbs working by increasing the number of active immune cells and their activity within the body. You can also drink herbal tea such as Astragalus Root tea which will help your immune system. There are other ways to aid the Astra 8 Immune Shield product in its work such as getting regular sleep. Lack of quality sleep and being tired can make your body rundown and prone to infection or common colds and flu. Eating a healthy, balanced diet of fruit and vegetables as well as meat and poultry, carbohydrates and spices in your food helps maintain a healthy intake of vitamins, minerals and other nutrients important for immunity. Stress naturally impacts upon the body’s resources to fight against colds, flu and infection so ensuring that you de-stress such as with mindfulness, yoga, Pilates or even walking is important for your immunity.
