In a typical year, more than 35 million Americans will come down with the flu. Combined with other viruses, this fall could shape up to be a serious health challenge.

That’s why it’s essential right now to adopt a wellness strategy that can help serve as a strong line of defense for you and your family.

The strategy is made up of 4 steps:

  1. Perfect your plate – fill it with lean animal and plant based proteins, fruits and vegetables
  2. Bridge nutritional gaps – try nutrition shakes like Ensure Max Protein
  3. Drink up – stock your pantry with electrolyte rich options like Pedialyte, comfort soups and teas
  4. Get moving – regular exercise can improve the circulation of immune cells and help build muscle mass that improves immunity
