As we head into win­ter, it’s im­por­tant to keep our en­ergy lev­els up and our im­mune sys­tems ro­bust.

Amazing Wellness - - EDITOR’S NOTE -

It’s al­ways a good idea to boost your im­mune sys­tem, but this time of the year it’s par­tic­u­larly im­por­tant. We’ve lost an hour of day­light, we’ve been through Hal­loween, and now we’re pre­par­ing for the busy hol­i­days in the months ahead. It’s im­por­tant to keep our en­ergy lev­els up and our im­mune sys­tems ro­bust.

How­ever, a strong im­mune sys­tem does more than fight colds and the flu. It bat­tles more se­ri­ous dis­eases like hep­ati­tis, leukemia and can­cers. While there are some lifestyle choices you can make to op­ti­mize your im­mune sys­tem — get­ting enough sleep, drink­ing less al­co­hol, eat­ing more fruits and veg­gies, and ex­er­cis­ing daily— you can keep your im­mune sys­tem strong with sup­ple­ments. In “Build An Ironclad Im­mu­nity,” on p. 34, writer Lisa Turner shares 10 sup­ple­ments that are proven to fight in­fec­tion.

While we’re on the topic of hol­i­days, this is­sue we put to­gether a list of gift ideas for the health-and-fit­ness-minded friend or fam­ily mem­ber in your life. Turn to p. 47 to find in­cred­i­ble gifts cu­rated for every­one on your list.

And con­sider this our present to you: the staff of Amaz­ing Well­ness did the leg­work for our read­ers, and tested tons of sup­ple­ments and per­sonal care prod­ucts that were in­tro­duced to con­sumers this year, and we came up with a list of the best of the best for 2018. We’re ex­cited to rec­og­nize some of the out­stand­ing prod­ucts rolled out in the past 10 months. Turn to p. 38 to see the win­ners!

Here’s to a healthy and happy hol­i­day sea­son!
