Top 10 Must-Follow Health & Wellness Influencers on Instagram

Love working out and eating well -- and looking for more daily inspiration? We’ve got a list of great, gorgeous Instagram accounts devoted to health and wellness to follow.

Over the past few years, tens of thousands of Instagram users have achieved influencer status. These influencers offer curated glimpses into their daily lives, and have quite diverse interests. Some influencers showcase video games, others makeup. Some are total fashion addicts, and others zoom in on home design.

An “influencer” refers to someone with the expertise, authority, and notoriety to influence others. Many times, these influencers will partner with relevant brands to share products and opportunities with their followers. Not all influencers are always trying to sell. In fact, our favorite health and wellness accounts are -- more than anything else -- committed to inspiring others to feel healthy, strong, and motivated.

At EZC Pak, our primary goal is to educate consumers about inappropriate antibiotic usage. But our secondary goal  is to promote a healthy, active, and fun lifestyle that lends itself to improved health. We love logging on to Instagram to get inspired, find new meal prep ideas, and discover new workouts.

Read on to learn more about the top ten health and wellness accounts you’ll find on Instagram.

💚🍋Let's talk about vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid. Vitamin C is essential for many processes in our bodies, including connective tissue formation, wound healing, the activation of folic acid, the conversion of cholesterol to bile acids & of tryptophan to serotonin. It is a potent antioxidant & has even been found to help people who have allergies, asthma & autoimmune diseases. Back in the day, people would get scurvy if they had a vitamin C deficiency. Luckily, we don't have an issue with scurvy in the USA, although we face a different problem with processed foods, which cause a host of other diseases. --- The highest content of vitamin C in the body can be found in the adrenal glands. I would be interested in seeing if stress compromises the immune function through dysregulation of vitamin C since the adrenals also release cortisol, but that's just the nerdy scientist in me pondering 🤔😜... Studies have shown that vitamin C shortens the duration & severity of the common cold (WHICH ANTIBIOTICS ARE NOT EFFECTIVE AGAINST.) As I had mentioned in a recent post, I have seen an increased incidence in colds and the flu recently, which usually start picking up in late September. I always recommend stress management, adequate sleep, a whole balanced diet, exercise, meditation, and washing hands frequently to help prevent & treat a cold, and love to recommend vitamin C, zinc & echinacea, like in the @EZCPak. --- The photo above is of citrus foods hich are rich in vitamin C, but did you know that kale, peppers, strawberries & broccoli are just some of the foods that contain more vitamin C than citrus foods? Don't you just love how food is medicine? 🍋💚

Who's ready for Fall?! If you're like me, I always get sick at the change of seasons or while traveling (planes and airports are riddled with germys! Yuck!) Airborne doesn't cut it and EmergenC not so much. I found a solution, @ezcpak!! A natural Z Pack to support your immune system?! Yes please! I try to stay within holistic methods as much as possible. Our bodies are magical and meant to fight off infection naturally. Problem is a lot of health care practitioners are quick to give you a man made medication or antibiotic that can actually have a negative effect on your system. I have really bad allergies and EZC Pak has aided from allergy attacks too. Love this stuff!!

Motivation Monday 💪🏼 Years ago, when I was 65lbs heavier and had just started on my health journey, I said “one day I’ll move to LA and be a fitness model.” It was a pipe dream that didn’t seem possible in that moment, but I KNEW in my gut I could make come true if I put my mind to it. Flash forward to last week shooting on the beach in LA for a fitness brand with @5thavenueproductions and @datsyukiandeke! 💪🏼 Moral of the story, you might not know how or when your dreams will become a reality, but if you consistently show up one day at a time, the universe can’t help but hand you your goals on a silver freaking platter. 🙌🏼 #TeamBCFit . . . . . . . #fitnessmodel #fitness #model #fitfam #boostio #gratitude #beach #LA #losangeles #santamonica #cantstopwontstop #nevergiveup #crossfit #wod #workout #kettlebell #bodybuilding #motivation #inspiration #success #coach #life #love #energy #healing

I’ve been on a breakfast smoothie kick lately, I’ll leave my go to recipe below! ⭐️ I’m super stoked on this company @ezcpak Not only for this immune boosting supplement they make but the cause they’re speaking up about. (#notsponsored) Antibiotic resistance is a real thing and it’s happening thanks to our overuse of antibiotics. Roughly 80% of the antibiotics being used in this country are being fed to our livestock, so if you’re not eating organic , chances are you’re also getting a nice dose of antibiotics everytime you eat your conventional meat & dairy. Bacteria is getting smart and evolving and we are starting to see strains of antibiotic resistant bacteria, which is terrifying when you’re facing a real issue that needs to be remedied by antibiotics! I am not speaking against antibiotics, I recognize that when we need them we really need them. But we are over abusing them and not saving them for just the life threatening situations. Drs are also over prescribing them which is a huge concern as well. When you go to the Dr for a cold and come home with antibiotics this is a total and complete waste unless if the cold is bacteria based (which most of the time it’s not, it’s a virus). Antibiotics fight bacteria, not viruses. Not to mention every time you take antibiotics they completely WIPE OUT your whole healthy microbiome. Research now shows just how important that bacteria in our guts is. It controls everything from your hormones, to your metabolism, your mood, your skin, you name it! Personally, because of this, I only save antibiotics for very serious, no way around it type situations. There is a time and place for antibiotics, but if we don’t start getting smarter and picking and choosing when to use them we may soon lose the ability to use them at all thanks to antibiotic resistant bacteria. Which brings me back to @ezcpak! I’ve been using these whenever I feel a cold coming on and they seriously knock that crap out! It’s a mega dose of Echinacea, Vit C, & Zinc which are all known to activate the immune system so your body can fight off the infection. Again, #notsponsored, just important ❤️ Make my smoothie:

My go-to meal (plus or minus a few ingredients) that I have just about every single day 😍🍴When you ENJOY THE FOOD you’re eating, being healthy definitely doesn’t feel like a job, trust me. Once you begin to incorporate more colorful whole foods into your diet, over time your tastebuds will change and your body will eventually start to crave these nourishing foods I’m kind of a creature of habit, so for lunch or dinner I’ll try to pack all the colorful foods into one big salad. Mixed greens as the base, diced red bell pepper, Persian cucumbers, sautéed (or roasted) sweet potato & asparagus cooked in avocado oil, sprouts, avocado, either soft boiled eggs, wild salmon (I’ve been buying from @traderjoes), organic ground turkey, or organic chicken, pink salt/pepper/red chili flakes, and olive oil (my favorite is @kouzinifoods esp their herb-infused olive oil!) & lemon juice for dressing. Modify your meals to suit your preference and make sure to switch it up with ingredients to keep ya interested 😉 Hope this helps! #rachaelsgoodeats

I guess it’s that time of season, the symptoms are going around I’m hearing sniffles and I’m feeling a bit of it too 😱 so my first response is to get the supplements & oils☝🏽 Immediately started my @ezcpak from Horton & Converse Pharmacy and rolling my immunity blend well, everywhere 😂 -okay on my lymph nodes & bottom of my feet. Last night I dropped a few drops of respiratory blend in the shower to let the steam pick it up and open my sinuses, then diffused it with lavender as I went to sleep. I felt much better this morning but now to make sure I don’t let it creep up during the day! Thankfully the EZC pak is made to be taken throughout the day and taper off of. I can’t say enough how grateful I am for natural immune support 🙏🏽🙏🏽 If your aren’t near a Horton & Converse Pharmacy you can check my bio link for info on EZC Pak & my Immunity essential oil roller . . #naturalhealth #immunesupport #ezcpak #essentialoils #naturalhealth #holistic #healthandwellness #lifestyle #healthylifestyle #holistichealth #wellness #losangeles #cappochiro
