In the northern part of the country, fall is a season of changes, days are getting shorter and cooler and nature is getting ready for winter. Physiological changes are occurring for your patients too. It is now well established that the human body responds to external seasonal changes such as annual variations in daily light exposure. Our resident microbiota is also influenced by seasonal changes.

Knowing how seasonal changes may influence your patients’ health, we asked Dr. Ber, the Assistant Director of Science and Nutrition at Protocol For Life Balance®, which supplements are best to prepare for winter in the following categories: probiotics, vitamins and minerals, and botanicals.*

Because these products work through different mechanisms, it makes sense to take them in combination – ideally at least one from each category throughout the fall season as a baseline regimen. You may also recommend taking only two of these on a regular basis and keeping one to take during difficult seasonal transitions.

At Protocol For Life Balance® we strive to offer a line of products that allows you to make individual recommendations tailored to your patients’ needs so they can pass through the fall season transition and be ready for the harsher winter weather.*
