Here are coronavirus tips to strengthen your immune system!
I know many of you are concerned about the Coronavirus & have been contacting me in regards to what to do for prevention. Here is my recommendation :
1. Stop eating SUGAR (it is an immune suppressant)
2. Replenish your MICROBIOME properly, it is the foundation of a healthy immune response! (contact me with details)
3. Take HIGH quality immune supporting supplements. I am happy to give all of you a 20% discount in my practitioner account, Designs for Health (not an MLM company, but a Physicians grade product line) I will post link in comments.
4. Don’t fear…stress causes your immune system to go into “overdrive”.
5. Practice good hygiene 😉
6. STAY HYDRATED!

INFO on IMMUNE SUPPORT Packets:
These packets provide a comprehensive arsenal of immune-supportive
nutrients, helping the body maintain a strong defense, especially during
the cold and flu season.* Products that comprise these packets were
selected for their abilities to promote an overall healthy immune response,
providing the body with efficacious amounts of anti-oxidative vitamins,
minerals, and phytonutrients.1
Immunitone Plus™ provides antiviral and antibacterial support as well as
the ability to maintain natural killer (NK) cell activity and the synthesis of
cytokines (immunomodulating agents such as interleukins).* This formula
contains an array of botanicals such as green tea standardized to a very
high level of EGCg as well as standardized echinacea, elderberry, astragalus,
and andrographis. Standardized herbs contain optimal and consistent
amounts of the most active compounds. Other highlights include several mushrooms (cordyceps, shiitake, maitake, and reishi), all
containing diverse biological activity with various degrees of immunomodulatory and therapeutic health benefits.2 The fatty acid
lauric acid (monolaurin) is included for its antiviral properties and T-cell proliferative effects.3 Rounding out this formula are the
polysaccharides larch tree (arabinogalactans) and beta 1,3 glucan, included for their abilities to stimulate immune cells.2,4
Vitamin D Complex features 2,000 IUs (50 mcg) of vitamin D, along with efficacious amounts of the other fat-soluble vitamins, A,
E (tocopherols and tocotrienols), and K (K1 and K2). Supplementing clinically relevant amounts of vitamin D creates a greater need
for its other fat-soluble counterparts.
Vitamin D has many health benefits including protecting the body from respiratory infections. Studies show that a deficiency in
vitamin D increases the risk of such infections, including colds and flu.5,6 Vitamin D is involved in modulating two important aspects
of the immune response: the function of T-cell lymphocyte and the production of interleukin-10 (IL-10). By doing so, this helps to
better arm and activate the body’s immune system in order to destroy pathogenic bacteria and viruses and fight off infections.
The other fat-soluble vitamins in Vitamin D Complex are equally as important. Vitamins A and E are both involved in the
development of some of the most important lymphocytes (NK cells, T cells, B cells), white blood cells responsible for the body’s
immune response. Supplementing with vitamin E also helps reverse an age-related decline in T cell function, an important factor for
the elderly whose immune system often weakens with age.7,8
Stellar C™ is rich in vitamin C (600 mg from a mixture of ascorbic acid and acerola fruit) as well as the plant bioflavonoids
hesperidin, rutin, and quercetin. Vitamin C shines in its immune-enhancing abilities by helping reduce the risk, severity, and duration
of respiratory tract infections such as colds and flu.9 Supplementing with vitamin C has been shown to improve antimicrobial and
natural killer cell activities as well as lymphocyte proliferation.10 The plant bioflavonoids included in Stellar C™ support the immune
system by protecting cell membranes against oxidative stress from things such as germs, toxins, environmental pollutants.11-14
Bioflavonoids, nature’s antioxidants, work synergistically with vitamin C, as they are found in fruits such as oranges and grapefruits.
Zinc Supreme™ is an important addition to these packets, as zinc is involved in virtually every aspect of immunity. This mineral has
antiviral properties and is even effective against several viruses that cause the common cold.15 Supplementing with zinc has been
shown to stimulate the production of white blood cells, as well as support the actions of neutrophils, T-lymphocytes, and natural
killer cells.15 Zinc helps to increase the number of T cells, especially in the elderly, as this population is often deficient in this mineral.15
Zinc is also required for producing thymulin, the major thymus hormone. A reduction of thymulin may lead to impaired immune
function.16 Zinc Supreme™ offers chelated minerals for superior bioavailability and optimal absorption.
N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine’s inclusion is significant, as this amino acid helps to increase glutathione levels, the body’s most powerful
antioxidant and the one most important to overall health. N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine and glutathione have been shown to minimize the
onset of oxidative stress.17 Glutathione is needed in every cell throughout the body and is involved in regulating the body’s immune
response. Research shows that lymphocytes from healthy humans have optimal glutathione levels, while low levels in the body have
been associated with common illnesses and a weakened immune system.18 Building a strong defense against viruses such as the flu
is dependent on sufficient levels of this vital antioxidant.
