Watsons Help Us Work Toward Good Health and A Strong Immune System

Our new normal is all about good health and a strong immune system. My husband Keith and my son Kyle are two very important people in my life. I want to live a longer life for them. I have always tried to be healthy but being on enhanced community quarantine has only served to further highlight that. As we make wellness a new way of life, you can count on Watsons to be with you every step of the way. I get our vitamins and medications from Watsons, as well as our basic hygiene supplies like soaps and paper products.

Here are a few recommendations from Watsons on keeping your immunity strong and your family healthy.  Before ECQ, I have been going to the gym fairly regularly. I like being active because physical activity gives me more energy and it helps relieve stress. Of course, being active also means a stronger immune system and that is what we need right now. While we’re all staying at home, I still do simple workouts five days a week, around 30 minutes a day on my own. Then, three or four times a week, the whole family does short Kyle-friendly physical activities. Exercising with the family really makes me happy right now.

Cooking is another thing I love. Even pre-ECQ, I would prepare the family’s meals personally.  Keith and Kyle love home-cooked meals. They prefer my cooking over fastfood. These days there is a more conscious effort on my part to make sure that our meals are rich in nutrients and antioxidants. Seafood, lean meat, dark green leafy vegetables and yellow veggies (like squash and carrots) are ingredients that are easy to find. Tea is a drink that’s rich in antioxidants. I’ve been enjoying Nutrabliss by Watsons Tea.

Getting enough sleep is an important step in the journey to good health. Good sleep helps us still alert and happy and it also boosts the immune system. I have always had no problem with sleeping early and waking up early. These are good habits instilled in me by my parents and I’ve been trying to make sure Kyle grows up knowing how important it is to his well-being that he gets eight hours of sleep every night..  Another good health practice is drinking vitamins daily. Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that plays an important role in immunity. Studies have shown that drinking Vitamin C can reduce the severity of respiratory infection symptoms and shorten their duration. Vitamin C is very important for the whole family so we’re well stocked on Watsons Generics Ascorbic Acid. Vitamin C is not the only vitamin that we take. I love Conzace Soft Gel, which is rich in Zinc, Vit. A, C and E to help boost immunity and promotes healthy hair and skin. Myra E 400IU is also rich in Vitamin E that helps fight cell damage. Kyle takes Growee Syrup and when he’s
older, Cherifer PGM with Zinc capsules to support his height growth and help his body become stronger.

Supplements are a great way to give your health an extra boost. Being outdoors could mean
exposure to environmental factors that may cause damage to our skin and body. I like
supplements like MET Tathione, NU Essence Collagen and Organique Acai Juice to give me that glow I can only get because I’m in good health. You can also keep your defenses up with supplements that harness the power of natural ingredients such as MX3 capsules and
Watsons Generics Malunggay + Mangosteen.

I’m a Girl Scout in that I’m always prepared with health essentials from Watsons to help our home stay ready for any illness or emergency. These essentials include Ascof Forte Syrup, Strepsils and Prosource Extra Virgin Coconut Oil. Also very important is Biogenic Ethyl Alcohol. We all apply alcohol after washing our hands.
