Proper nutrition isn’t always easy to maintain, even if you are eatin’ your greens. But it is more important than you might imagine when it comes to feeling energized and focused.
Kids and adults alike – especially those with dietary restrictions, illness, disease, high stress or activity levels or just plain busy lives - often need to supplement or completely rely on nutritional drinks to fulfill their daily requirements of vitamins, minerals, protein and calories.
Allegro has long been a source of the most popular dietary supplements for adult and child nutrition. Can we help you or your loved ones and patients maintain healthy nutrition?

Cold weather, indoor activities, school kids, lack of exercise and the stresses of everyday life = increased susceptibility to colds and flu.
If I stay ahead of colds and flu I find that I only get sick when foreign germs are forced on me – like in an airplane or by my thoroughly wonderful, germy nephews. When you are constantly fighting something and you have to ‘chase’ good health, it is important to realize that you can’t win unless you strengthen your immune system.
Create and follow a plan to bolster your immunity and you may just sail through cold and flu season sniffle-free. Those with disabilities or chronic illnesses have an even tougher time avoiding colds and flu, but they are often times better prepared to prevent colds and flu because they know the dangers.
Going into the holiday season with a chink in your immunity armour is really asking for trouble. Here are some ideas and products to help you prevent colds and flu this season by strengthening your ability to fight germs:
Reduce your Stress
Stress Eraser - We’ve all heard that stress kills and we’ve seen plenty of evidence to support it. Perhaps this amazing stress relieving tool could save your life. It is a portable biofeedback device that helps you learn how to activate your body’s natural relaxation response. FDA regulated, non-invasive and drug-free. Featured on The Rachael Ray Show and The View. A great gift! Those with high blood pressure might consider the RESPeRATE as well.
Manage your stress with other stress relievers, massagers and spa products in our Stress Products Category
Are You Too Stressed? Take the Stress Test!
Do Moderate, Consistent Exercise
A recent study shows that the risk both of catching a cold or the flu and of having a particularly severe form of the infection “drop if you exercise moderately”. If you are sedentary, or if you exercise too intensely, the opposite is true. As with most things, moderation wins.
Exercise Peddler - Work at your own pace peddling with your arms or your legs. This exercise peddler is a favorite because it folds up and there is no assembly required. Features adjustable resistance and an electronic display, all for under $50. Makes a great gift. I use mine while I watch t.v. That’s not cheating, is it? See all Cycles/Pedlars

Take your Vitamins
Emercen-C Immune Defense - Includes all the necessary vitamins to boost your immune system. Mix with water and enjoy hot or cold. Emergen-C products are extremely popular and provide a wide range of targeted benefits.
