I love winter and the hope for snow and cold and I have not been sick in years but every year as the weather changes and illness abounds I struggle to stop the bugs that sneak in.  They are everywhere due to the crappy state of most folks lives/health.  I look for ways to stay strong and fit and healthy all winter long.  Juice and fruit and vitamins help.

Probiotics and garlic and ginger provide a powerful punch but as I deal with festering cesspools of disease on the street.

I look for and have several tools tools to help….

1) Vitamin C  2-3 grams a day and crank up to 10 or more if threatened

2) Garlic capsules 2-3 times a day as well as lots of garlic in foods and even garlic cloves chewed

3) pro-biotic capsules every day and some probiotic foods (rejuvelac/sauerkraut and soon kimchi)

4) Lots of water and good juice

5) green tea


Found this tonic and I am looking forward to using it.
