Combat Your Cold: Five Natural Products to Help Boost Your Immune System

The sniffles, sneezes and achy muscles that come along with a cold and flu probably make you want to curl up in bed with a blanket over your head. Ensuring you are getting lots of rest, enough liquids and a steady supply of over-the-counter cold and flu medication is a tried and true recipe for recovery. However, adding an extra boost of immune system support definitely can’t hurt!*

Adding natural ingredients with proven immune support to your regimen will help give your body the extra support it needs to combat cold and flu symptoms. Start boosting your immune system today with five natural products specifically formulated to help you stay healthy.

Kaqun Water

In our polluted 21st century atmosphere, most people aren't getting access to the levels of oxygen needed for peak health and immunity. Kaqun Water is formulated with highly charged "clusters" of oxygen that can permeate the body’s cells, and penetrate deeper into tissues where it can help to strengthen the immune system. Drinking Kaqun Water on a regular basis will help keep you feel more hydrated, an important factor in beating any cold and flu symptoms you may be experiencing. Learn more about the benefits of Kaqun Water in Martha Tailor’s 2014 book, Staying Alive: The True Story of Kaqun Water and Its Effectiveness in Improving Health and Life.*

Protein

The body needs protein to build and repair itself, and a deficiency makes it easier to catch the flu. According to health experts at Today Health and Wellness, specific nutrients stave off billions of bacteria, viruses, and other germs—and protein is one of them. "One of the reasons is that the antibodies that help fight disease are actually made of protein," the experts say. [1]

PerfectAmino from BodyHealth contains eight essential amino acids formulated for body support and rebuilding. Most other amino acid products from online vitamin vendors and health food stores are missing one or more of the eight essential amino acids, or include a less effective balance. PerfectAmino contains the eight essential amino acids in optimal proportions to promote quicker body recovery and protein production.*

Multivitamin

In today's world of mass-processed and deficient foods, a good way to guarantee that you are getting sufficient vitamins and minerals is by taking a daily multivitamin and mineral supplement. When your body has "all" the nutrients it needs, your body is in a better position to fight off viruses and you are far less likely to get the cold or flu. BodyHealth Complete Multi + Daily Liver Support is a comprehensive source of vitamins and minerals, plus it has added liver detoxification ingredients to help the body rid itself of toxins.*

Probiotics

Most of the immune system is located in the intestinal area which is dependent on a healthy population of probiotics—naturally occurring microbes that form a barrier against invading germs. A healthy amount of good bacteria equals a strong intestinal barrier. And that means a healthy immune system!

In a New Zealand study, professional rugby players taking probiotics had fewer colds, and there was "evidence for the beneficial effects of daily supplementation with probiotic strains in highly trained rugby union players.” Intestinal Cleanse from BodyHealth contains a healthy dose of probiotics and promotes healthy digestive tract function, adding in the maintenance of a strong immune system.* [2]

Coconut Oil

Coconut oil is a rich source of Lauric Acid which is antiviral and antibacterial. According to a plethora of recent research, adding coconut oil to a balanced, healthy diet can help to dramatically boost the immune system. It can be used for cooking in place of vegetable or canola oil and is a great addition to smoothies. Plus, it’s also a great moisturizer for the hair and skin!

So there you have it! Five natural ingredients that can help strengthen your immune system, giving your body the extra support it needs.

The Battle Of The Belly — Testosterone, Aromatase & Male Estrogen

Testosterone, like Growth Hormone, plays a large role in muscle bulk and strength, as well as fat-burning. 

It also helps regulate sex drive, bone mass, fat distribution (as in where the fat is stored), body composition, and the production of red blood cells and sperm.

As it’s the “male” hormone, we see much higher numbers in men than in women, though women still need this just as men still need some estrogen, the “female” hormone.
