No matter what time of year, our immune system is at risk of being confronted with a virus or bacteria that it cannot fight off. The result is, undoubtedly, an illness. Whether it’s the latest pandemic, flu virus or an uncomfortable stomach infection, getting sick not only drains our energy, it also causes a disbalance in our Qi. Thankfully, we can learn more by digging deeper into Force Field.
Balance Blends’ Force Field uses the wisdom of Traditional Chinese Herbs to restore balance to your mind and body. Like all of our supplements, Force Field contains Extrapolents, which are a combination of concentrated herbal extracts and modern-day supplements that help to recalibrate and bring balance to an imbalanced Qi (energy).
Most natural immune system supplements rely solely on vitamins and minerals, like Vitamin C, to boost your immune system. There are other well-studied natural options within Chinese Traditional Medicine that help to boost your defense system even more.

Lifestyle Changes to Boost Your Immunity
In addition to the healthy effects that Force Field will have on your body, there are also certain lifestyle changes that can dramatically help. Let's take a look at the most important!
- Eat More Plants: Yes, you read that correctly. Whole plants are filled with beneficial antioxidants that can help to reduce inflammation in the body. Some foods that you may wish to incorporate in your daily diet include: seeds, legumes, nuts, fruits and vegetables.
- Sleep 8-10 Hours Every Night: You health and sleep are tied together - perhaps more than you actually realize. In a recent study, it was shown that people who sleep for six hours or less each night will become ill much easier than those who get their full eight hours in. So, watch your screen time late at night, rest your mind and have a peaceful sleep!
- Eat Less Sugar: As often as possible, try to reduce the sugar in your diet. When you take in less sugar, chances are that you will more likely retain a healthy weight, which is also a contributing factor to boosting your immunity. Plus, sugar increases inflammation in the body, which is never a good thing.
- Stay Hydrated: Drinking plenty of water can keep your body healthier in almost any situation. But again, try to stick to water. Fruit juices are often very high in sugar, and we all know the dangers of drinking sodas, which can actually dehydrate the body.
Additionally, if you're feeling ill and are experiencing a loss of energy, Quiet Please (also from Balance Blends and in addition to Force Field) can help you get that full night's sleep that you need for your body to heal and restore your energy levels.
