Do you want to feel energetic as the seasons change? Boosting your Immune defence starts now.. with these simple Dos and Don'ts
Our Immune system is amazingly complex and comprises of our digestion system, cells, tissues and organs in our body working together to prevent infection. The immune system’s function is to protect and defend our bodies. When we talk about strengthening our immune system, the goal we’re actually trying to achieve is to Feel Better and to be sick less often. We all agree, feeling sick, tired and run down is the worst. As the weather starts to cool down and the seasons change, we can find ourselves at risk of colds, flus or just a general feeling of exhaustion.
What about Supplements?
There’s no end to the number of companies claiming to have a vitamin or a supplement to help prevent colds and flus. But are these pills really doing anything to help… or are they just a waste of money?
If you look at any vitamin or nutrition supplement in Australia, the label and advertising will say “Vitamin supplements should not replace a balanced diet.” Here at KOJA we smile every time we read that, because it’s just saying there’s nothing better than real food! And that’s exactly what we think.
Here at KOJA, we believe health should be simple. We’re not fans of fads or products with quick fix claims. Our mission at KOJA is to create authentically healthy products to make us feel better. We strongly believe that Real Food makes us Feel Better. And it’s that simple.
So how can you support your immune system as the seasons change? We recommend you keep it simple, with our dos and don’ts. Follow most of these and we’re sure you’ll have all the energy you need to bounce through the next few months feeling great!
One last reminder…
The best thing you can do for your Immune system is maintain general good health. Immunity weakens with age so it’s even more important as we age to ensure we’re leading a healthy lifestyle.

Zinc - Found in all our Breakfast & Salad Toppers. We also recommend wholefoods like chickpeas, oysters, yoghurt and chicken.
