Boosting your immune system against viruses
Antibiotics only work against bacteria – and even this effect is under threat with the over-use of antibiotics in both human medicine and animal rearing. They have NO effect against viruses.
Consequently the only way to strengthen your resistance against viral threats is through improved diet, the use of a broad-based and balanced supplement and a specific immune boosting compound like the Wellmune ® 1-3, 1-6, beta glucans in ImmunoShield.
An effective 3 step plan would be:
1 Take general action to boost your immune system
This includes heeding the generalised advice to increase intake of fruits and vegetables. Foods that have a specific impact on the immune system include all mushrooms (but shiitake and maitake mushrooms appear especially beneficial), dark berry fruits, cruciferous vegetables like cabbage, spinach, broccoli and kale, pumpkin, citrus fruits for their vitamin C content, garlic, wheat germ which is high in vitamin E and green tea.
If you are taking a supplement a one-a-day will not contain the range you ideally need. Look for a supplement that includes a balanced range of immune supporting nutrients like green tea extract, flavonoids, Omega 3, vitamin D3, all 8 forms of vitamin E, carotenoids, curcumin and zinc. NutriShield contains these and more.
2 Directly boost the immune system
The natural ingredient in ImmunoShield called Wellmune 1-3, 1-6 beta glucans has been shown to boost the number and activity of neutrophils and macrophages. These are key components in a strongly functioning immune system.
