Immune health is an important part of our well-being. I find the time between January and Spring to feel like the longest stretch of Winter. While I love getting outside, the cold usually has me wrapped up inside, usually in close quarters with others.

Being cooped up inside, surrounded by a chorus of coughing and sneezing is never a good thing, especially when it comes to our health.
