The flu? It's present... but the weather? A wise music artist by the name of Mura Masa once stated "The weather cold; the weather so; chill, chilly really penguin feather roll." While that may or may not make any sense to you whatsoever, the point it that it's cold out there... somehow colder than my soul, but ok. The nice thing about this time of year is that Bolthouse Farms C-Boost is here to help us all not catch the flu, since some people unlike me decide not to get the flu shot... rolls eyes.

While some people say that flu and cold season starts in February, it's amongst us now... in the mere month of January. It's completely avoidable with the flu shot, but if that's not enough for you, then consider utilizing Bolthouse Farms C-Boost. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, they say that about 8% of Americans are sickened by the flu each year. For that very reason, that's why Bolthouse Farms partnered with Registered Dietician, Beth Auguste on some tips and tricks to help you stay healthy this winter and combat the cold and flu.

Some tips that Registered Dietician, Beth Auguste has for us all would be tied to common sense, but they include frequent hand washing, getting a good night's sleep, staying hydrated, exercising regularly, and eating a healthy diet of nutrient-rich foods, including vitamin C. Registered Dietician, Beth Auguste has also stated that “During cold and flu season I often find my clients reaching to juice for a kick of vitamin C. I encourage my clients to reach for a juice with no added sugar or flavors but that is still high in Vitamin C and other immune-boosting properties. Bolthouse Farms C-Boost smoothie fits the bill, and also tastes pretty great. It has a sweet yet tart blend of pear, mango and acerola cherries (Fun fact, 1 acerola cherry can contain your whole day’s worth of vitamin C!). The bottle comes in various serving sizes so you can grab one to go or keep one in the fridge for the family." Talk about health, am I right?
