How to build a strong immune system
REAL food will supply the body with all the nutrients we need to increase immunity and fight viruses and infection.
The common misconception is that we need fruit for Vitamin C, fruit also contains lots of Fructose, Fructose is sugar and our body treats it all the same.
So what about Vitamin C? Bell Peppers contain nearly 3 x the Vitamin C than oranges with considerably less carbohydrates (Sugar). Kale is also very high in Vitamin C with almost ZERO carbs per serving.
Red meat, oily fish and eggs supply the body with almost everything we need including Zinc & Vitamin B, with Red Meat & Beef Liver being the most nutrient dense foods available… the TRUE SUPER FOODS.
Spinach and Salmon give up plenty of Vitamin E.
Salmon is also a good natural source of Astraxanthin, a potent antioxidant which plays a major role in balacening the body’s immune response and fighting Oxidative Stress.
Mushrooms are not only absolutely delicious when pan-fried in butter, but they’re also an amazing source of Vitamin D.
FASTING not only saves money on our shopping bill, but puts the body into a state of Autophagy. Autophagy is the body’s way of cleaning out damaged cells, in order to regenerate newer, healthier, stronger, fitter cells helping the body to defend itself against foreign invaders.
AVOID Grain, Sugar & Processed foods as these increase risk of infection and deplete nutrients in other foods. They cause inflammation, oxidative stress and glycation all of which effect the body’s ability to fight off viruses and infection.
