It’s crucial to stay healthy as the threat of coronavirus spreads. We all know the basics, keep your stress levels down, get some sleep, wash your hands for at least 20 seconds. Beyond the basics, there are real ways you can take care of yourself and give your immune system the best chance to do its job against all the flu and viruses going around.
Here are some helpful ways to strengthen your immune system and fight off disease.
1. Add a Vitamin D Supplement: Taking a vitamin D supplement could help your body fight off respiratory illness. How can vitamin D help lower the risk of respiratory illness? Our bodies need adequate vitamin D to produce the antimicrobial proteins that kill viruses and bacteria. If we don’t have adequate vitamin D circulating, we are less effective at producing these proteins and are more susceptible to infection.
We recommend NutriDyn D3 10,000 with K2
2. Eat a diet high in fruits and vegetables. When the immune system is down, you want to avoid things like alcohol and sugar, especially because microbes love sugar. Think about eating in color: dark green, red, yellow, and orange fruits and veggies are packed with antioxidants.
3. Exercise regularly. Endorphins ease pain and promote a sense of relaxation and well-being – all of which can help you de-stress and sleep better, which in turn improves immunity.
4. Immune-boosting herbs and homeopathic formulas for prevention and reduction of symptoms. For those who are experiencing flu-like symptoms such as a runny nose, sore throat, phlegm or cough we recommend a combination of the following supplements.
Respiratory ailments obviously impair lung function, interfering with the body's normal ability to take in oxygen and expel carbon dioxide. Since oxygen is needed for all cells to function, improving lung function is necessary. Oxypower is an herbal formula that is effective for lung congestion. It has an anti-hypoxia and anti-fatigue function. It increases the oxygen-carrying capacity of the red blood cells six times stronger. Those who have chest heaviness, those who cannot lie down without their upper body being elevated and those who smoke or have been exposed to smoke will benefit from OxyPower.
Bamboo Extract has both antiviral and antibacterial properties. In fact, it was traditionally used for respiratory bacterial infections. It is most effective among the population who are most likely to have compromised immunity and is effective against long-term infections.
It is important to note that Bamboo Extract should not be used instead of antibiotics for severe infections. However, it can be used in conjunction with antibiotics for better and faster results.
BAMBOO EXTRACT is used for:
♦ Acute and chronic throat and lung conditions
♦ Sore Throat
♦ Runny Nose
♦ Ear Irritation in Children
“Bamboo Extract has been used for decades to help support immune system function and respiratory health. I was on a cruise recently with my family and was the only one in my group taking bamboo extract daily. Others contracted the flu but I remained healthy,” says Erica.
Liver Chi is an all-natural herbal formula to support liver health and detoxification. The herbs in Liver Chi have been used for centuries in traditional Chinese medicine as liver tonics and revered for their detoxification properties.
Liver Chi contains the following traditional herbs:
For those who are looking for prevention, we recommend taking Bamboo Extract, 3 capsules in the morning before leaving the house. Even for children, they can take Bamboo Extract for prevention. We recommend taking one capsule daily. You open the capsule and mix the bamboo extract into the applesauce. For those who are experiencing flu-like symptoms such as a runny nose, sore throat, phlegm or cough we recommend taking Bamboo Extract, Oxypower, and Liver Chi.
There is no better defense against diseases than a powerful immune system.
