Winter’s here and you’re feeling nervous about staying healthy. But don’t fear . . . inside you is the best defense force around. Your immune system is the most sophisticated, flexible and effective way to keep your body healthy.
However, it can’t perform its duties if you don’t take care of it. So to make sure your defenses are ready to go, make sure you put these immune boosting nutrients into your diet.
Protein Boosts Keeps Your Immune Army Marching
The simple lentil bean gained fame for fueling the Roman army during their campaigns.
The lentil was so important because it fed the hardworking soldiers the protein they needed. Our immune system is no different . . .
As nutrition doctor, Dr. Michael Rosenbaum, MD explains, “Your immune system is especially sensitive to nutritional deficiencies.” He points out that our immune cells have some of the highest turnover rates of any cells in the body. Every four days, these cells are replaced. And this requires lots of nutritional building blocks.
Chlorella provides more protein per gram than steak – enough to fuel an army.
Antioxidants Arm Your Immune System So It Can Fight Back
Because one of our immune system tactics involves “bombing” the enemy with high doses of free radicals, our immune system cells need extra antioxidant “armor” as protection from friendly fire.
Chlorella gives your body antioxidants like vitamin C, beta carotene, chlorophyll and vitamin E.
In fact in one study, chlorophyll put out more antioxidant protection than even the powerful vitamin C or glutathione. And chlorella has more chlorophyll than any other plant on this planet.
Defend Yourself With Vitamin D
For a long time scientists have known that vitamin D shores up our immune system. But now we’re starting to learn how it helps.
Apparently, when one of your immune system’s T-cells comes across a potential invader, not only does it sound the alarm, but it also divides and multiplies in order to bolster its ranks.
However, before it does any of this, it puts up something like a little antenna to detect if there is adequate vitamin D in the blood. If there is, the T-cell goes forward in building its army. However, if it can’t find enough D in your blood, it will ignore the threat.
Other recent research shows cells in your lungs and gums produce their own antibiotics only if you’ve got enough D around.
Three grams of chlorella gives you 1161 mg of vitamin D. Just about what most health experts recommend on a daily basis.
Nourish Your Immune System And Protect Yourself
Over the past few years, in fact, the medical community has backed off from attacking your body’s natural response to illness – you know, the stuffy noses, coughs and fevers. Doctors are acknowledging that these symptoms are more helpful than harmful. They are your body’s means of flushing, expelling and burning out germs that would otherwise make you their home.
So what’s the latest advice? Don’t interfere with these symptoms too much. But do everything you can to strengthen your body so it can fight more effectively.
As a preventative measure, make sure you exercise. Get enough rest. And eat well to give yourself the ingredients for a healthy defense.
Chlorella fits in perfectly to this strategy. Its powerful green nutrition will help you and your immune system stay strong and healthy as you enter the cold months of the year.
So you can enjoy winter – not dread it.
