Let's Talk About...   

   

Fall and winter seasons can bring on a variety of health issues including pesky colds and even the dreaded flu. Bacteria and viruses fly from person to person, in the air, on hands, doorknobs, bathroom doors and drawers, and in foods.  
 
Under normal circumstances, our immune system can be efficient, providing multiple defenses against the onslaught of these outside invaders. Apart from washing your hands, good nutrition is essential to a strong immune response but even mild deficiencies of certain nutrients can make all the difference in fighting infections. So, for starters food matters.


Nutrition and a good functioning digestive system are vital to one's health. A healthy digestive tract will give your immune system its base, and the ability to directly fight something like a flu virus, which incubates in your digestive tract before spreading to some other area of the body.  

 

Eating processed foods rob your body of vitamins and minerals. Studies have shown that deficiencies of zinc, selenium, iron, copper, folic acid, and vitamins A, B6, C, and E alter immune responses.

 

Here are two essential ways to aid your body in its ability to fight immune system challenges.

  



Cod liver oil is a wonderful nutritional supplement that provides multiple health benefits. It's rich in nutrients such as:

  • Vitamin A: to maintain a healthy immune system, helps resist bacterial and viral infections.
  • Vitamin D: maintains strong and healthy bones.
  • Omega-3 Fatty Acids: have anti-inflammatory properties which help relieve the symptoms of arthritis, improve brain function, and help with learning and behavioral disorders including bipolar syndrome.
  • EicosaPentaenoic Acid (EPA): for the cardiovascular system and helps reduce inflammation throughout the body. Also works as a natural anti-depressant.
  • DocosaHexaenoic Acid (DHA): a fatty acid that's vital for good eyesight, a healthy nervous system, and healthy skin.

Research has also shown that consuming 1-2 teaspoons of cod liver oil daily can help to prevent serious diseases such as cancer, diabetes, arthritis, musculoskeletal pain, kidney problems, and high cholesterol.

It has germ killing, disinfectant and anti-fungal
properties. Fat-soluble vitamins are those which disperse, and are stored, in fat.

 

Bacteria, and some viruses, have a very flimsy lipid fat membrane skin.  Since  Monolaurin has the same size lipid-fat molecules they absorb into the thin-skinned bacteria's skin. When inside, monolaurin blocks replication making it easier for your immune system kick the bacteria out.
