How to Build Your body’s Defense Against COVID
A lot of us are concerned about COVID right now, and what we can do to stop getting sick.
So firstly, it’s an INSIDE JOB. We want to be able to mount an internal cellular attack against the virus if it comes near us.
So the first recommendation is VITAMIN D. Loading up on your Vitamin D helps prevent the virus from entering your cells. A really hefty dose of about 4,000iu can work wonders!
If you feel like you’ve got something starting, you can up it to 5,000ui, but only for a few days. It’s not recommended to keep taking it for too long.
VITAMIN C helps quench free radical damage and helps the body to manufacture glutathione – our body’s most powerful antioxidant. Vitamin C also supports collagen production, helping your cells to maintain their membranes and internal structures. No wonder it has a reputation as the ultimate immune booster.
Once a virus (like COVID) gets through this first barrier and enters your cells, then it will hijack your cells’ internal mechanics to feed itself, enabling it to replicate and spread.
ZINC is a mineral that plays a vital role in making DNA and keeping our internal cellular mechanisms functioning. It’s essential for the activity of over 300 enzymes – all of which not only help our immune functions but also our metabolism, digestion and nerve function. It helps wound healing, fight infection and boosts your mental cognition. After Iron, it’s the most common mineral used by our bodies. It’s easiest taken as a supplement, but you can find it naturally in shellfish, meat, poultry, legumes, some nuts and seeds.
There are some more advanced formulas you can take too!
Transfer Factor Multi Immune promotes healthy natural killer cells, macrophage, T-cells, and cell division. It works by removing cellular debris and engulfing foreign particles in the blood stream and tissue. It’s a great supplement to help your body recover faster.
Immune Active is 5 immune boosters in 1! High potency Vitamin C, ZINC as well as; Quercetin, which helps protect cells from harmful free radicals; N-Acetylcysteine (NAC) which also helps build glutathione – one of the most powerful antioxidants produced in the body; and Epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) (as deca-einated+ green tea leaf extract) which aids antioxidant function.
