While it has always been very important to be proactive in preserving your health and supporting your immune system, current events surrounding the COVID-19 coronavirus outbreak have led individuals to question what they can do to protect themselves and their families in enduring this time.
Our previous article spoke of some details around coronavirus; however, we felt it prudent to give some practical solutions and recipes designed to aid immunity and fortify health.
While Nutrition Diagnostics advocates for prescribing supplementation based on your individual requirements as determined by body chemistry, there are supplements that everyone can take to assist with anti-viral protection.
Vitamin C’s primary function is to encourage the production of white blood cells, which, is the immune systems primary defence mechanism against viruses. Low levels of vitamin C - especially in the instance of a virus - tend to be linked to poor health outcomes. Vitamin C can be obtained from food. However, in times that require a significant uptake, we suggest supplementation. Our Bio Vitamin C provides antioxidant support and also contains lysine, proline and glycine to help maintain a healthy immune system.
Using our Bio Vitamin C, you can make our signature energy drink - find the recipe below!
Bio Omega 3-6-9 provides anti-inflammatory support as well as that for heart, brain, eye and immune health. Omega 3 essential fatty acids (specifically EPA and DHA) are important structural components of cell membranes, and therefore aid in the maintenance of healthy cells that can better defend themselves against viruses.
Colds, flu and viruses can hit us when the immune system has been challenged. This usually happens when we have; stressed the body (extra
physical activity), inadequate sleep, slipped on nutrition or been in contact with people who are sick. To this end, always remember the
tips below when you have a cold or flu:
Using our Bio Vitamin C, you can make our signature energy drink.
