With Autumn just around the corner, this is a classic time for many people to get sick.
I remember dreading school starting in the fall as a kid because I would always catch a bad cold in September, complete with sore throat, runny nose, headache, coughing and feeling wiped out for a week or better.
It got even worse in college because I was frequently not getting enough sleep cramming for exams, eating lots of burgers and pizza and drinking, er, well, beverages other than water. I got some real zingers then.
If only I knew then what I know now...
Because no matter what time of year it is, you can help fight viruses and infections by strengthening your body's natural defense against them...
Your immune system.
You can use gallons of hand sanitizer or wash your hands until they're raw, but unless you make sure your immune system is strong, you are a target for many a nasty bug.
And it doesn't stop there.
Because a healthy immune system is also an important weapon in your arsenal to help toward the prevention of cancer.
We have cancer almost all the time
You see, we all can have cancer cells forming in us all the time. It's possible that you have one or more in you right now as you read this email.
The question is, does our immune system fight it off or not.
In the US, 1 out of every 3 of us do not fight it off...and get "the diagnosis."
But when your immune system is healthy, it can detect those cancer cells.
Then it can work to help surround, engulf and destroy them.
But a problem arises when your immune system becomes weakened or compromised.
When that happens, it can't help fight cancer cells as well, or it can't recognize them, because cancer cells can closely resemble healthy cells.
So if you continue long enough with a poorly functioning immune system, you could have a lot more to worry about than a runny nose.
The great news is that there are some very effective ways to make sure your immune system is in tip-top shape, 12 months a year. I call them the...
Six Super Immune Boosters
1) Get enough sleep
Nothing can wipe out your immune system faster than inadequate sleep. Life goes on without SNL, Jay Leno or Seinfeld reruns. Turn off the TV and get some decent rest.
2) Avoid fast food, processed food, sugars, refined carbs and excessive alcohol consumption.
All of these feed the harmful bacteria in your gut, which can then crowd out your friendly flora and greatly hamper your immune function.
3) Limit antibiotic use
They can be life-savers, but antibiotics can also obliterate your immune system because they destroy your good bacteria as well as the illness-causing bacteria.
If you must take them, be sure to help counteract their harmful effects with a good probiotic supplement (more on that below).
Stress causes your body's protective mucosal barrier to become less effective at defending against unfriendly bacteria and dangerous pathogens. That's why many people get sick when under stress -- because their bodies literally can't fight off illness as well.
There are many ways to help de-stress: Meditation, exercise, counseling, deep breathing and seminars, to name a few. Choose one or more and feel the burdens of each day melt away.
5) Take a top-shelf multi-strain probiotic
Super Shield multi-strain probiotic formula is as good as it gets.
One of Super Shield's 13 superior medical-grade bacteria strains, Lactobacillus Rhamnosus, has been shown to stimulate antibody production and enhance phagocytosis (one of your body's weapons for destroying dangerous invaders).
In addition, Super Shield also contains Bifidobacteria Lactis, which has high adhesion to human mucus. That means it will stick to your colon wall to keep it strong and protective, which helps keep wastes and dangerous toxins and bacteria from leaking out into the bloodstream and making you SICK. This is especially good for you milk drinkers and cheese-a-holics.
6) Make sure you have adequate B12
In addition to helping your body generate energy and keeping your thinking sharp and clear, vitamin B12 is also essential for strong immune function.
B12 is crucial for the formation of red and white blood cells, which help boost your immune function.
Problem is, 1 out of 4 people are deficient in B12. Especially vulnerable are people over age 50, people who take acid reducers, vegetarians and people with Crohn's, colitis or IBS.
But even if you eat foods that are rich in B12 or take supplements, B12 is not easily absorbed through the GI tract...so chances are good you're getting far less than what you need.
The easiest way to make sure you have enough is to supplement with a highly absorbable form of B12.
Like Hydroxaden 2.5.
Hydroxaden 2.5 is an easy to use form of B12. Just 5 little sprays under your tongue gives you a full 2.5 mg of B12, comprised of two of the best forms--hydroxocobalamin (which raises your B12 level faster than other forms) and adenosylcobalamin (the form of B12 most used by your brain).
And it's more absorbable than any other form of B12...period.
Due to it's nano particles, no other form of B12 absorbs faster or more completely. It is, frankly, the best B12 product available anywhere at any price.
Your immune system is a primary key to your health and a normal life.
It is your key to helping to fight off colds, flu, infections and even deadly diseases 12 months a year.
Do as much as you can to keep your immune function strong, and you can reap the rewards of fewer or less severe illnesses and quite possibly, avoidance of more dangerous diseases.
