Hypol gives Winter Health a Helping Hand

It’s time to unpack the footy scarves and stock up on marshmallows…but one of the not-so-fun things the cooler weather brings are those inevitable bugs and viruses.

Faster than a pie cooling on a frosty morning, kids start straggling home with sniffles, coughs and runny noses – which they helpfully pass on to the rest of the family. Just as one wheely bin full of tissues is emptied, the next cold seems just around the corner.

So what can you do to help your family enjoy this winter in better health?

Good hygiene is important, and so is ensuring your children have the optimum nutrition they need to help keep their little immune systems strong.

Cherry Hypol is a nutritious supplement that can help reduce the severity and duration of colds, bronchitis and respiratory infections.

Packed with essential Omega-3 DHA fatty acids (often lacking in kids’ diets), Vitamins A, Vitamin D and minerals, Cherry Hypol is an invaluable source of nutrition for growing children.

The formula also contains the renowned Chinese herb Astragalus, traditionally used for those with poor resistance to colds; plus Zinc, which provides immune support and may help shorten colds.

Research suggests some babies and children, especially in our ‘Sun-safe’ society, may have inadequate levels of Vitamin D in their diet.

A dose of Hypol a day (especially in months with less sunlight) can help address the balance, giving them a boost of this important vitamin.

Vitamin D helps assist the absorption of calcium for strong, growing bones. Delicious and in an easy-to-take liquid formula, even fussy eaters will enjoy “Hypol time”. So make sure you’re prepared this footy season with the best tip for health and wellbeing – Hypol!
