Have you had a hectic week? If so, your immune system may need a little TLC to get back to functioning properly and protecting you.
What do I mean by a hectic week?
- Excess Stress
- Lack of sleep
- Poor diet
- No time to exercise
- Too busy to take your multi-vitamin
We have all been there. Sometimes due to life circumstances our health takes the back seat.
Don’t let that cause you to feel fatigued, run down or end up with a cold.
Maybe you have been sick or recently took a course of Antibiotics.
If any of these ring true to you…you should assume your immune system is weakened.
What can you do to immediately start boosting your immune system?
Right now take advantage of our special on Vitamin Sprays, buy two & take 50% off the second spray.
It’s so easy to use, just throw one in your purse, backpack or car and take a few sprays whenever it’s convenient.
How does it work?
When vitamins are sprayed directly into the mouth they are absorbed instantly through the mouth lining, side-stepping the digestive tract completely.
Literally within seconds it’s delivered via the bloodstream to the various parts of the body for immediate use.
Oral vitamin sprays has been shown to be up to 9 times more effective than swallowing pills or capsules.
How does your immune system become compromised?
When your body is reacting to emotional or mental stress it produces cortisol hormones. You may have heard of Fight or Flight. You need this for survival. This is okay on a short term basis but over time, when your stress is chronic, these extra cortisol hormones will put you at risk for high blood pressure, heart disease, digestive problems and a weak immune system. Your body will be in a constant inflammatory state which weakens your immune system.
How does this work?
Your body is not putting energy into fighting a cold or healing because it’s just trying to survive. This is extremely taxing on our immune systems if it’s your chronic state.
If you don’t already meditate try out some techniques from an on-line Stress Management Program or even download a free meditation app on your phone. As little as five minutes a day can make a difference. Studies show that that when your body is in a calm relaxed state your immune function is increased.
Research shows that not getting adequate sleep and even a short term loss of sleep has a significant impact on how the immune system functions.
Recent research conducted by the University of Washington Health Sciences/UW Medicine found that sleep deprivation has the same effect on your immune system as physical stress.
In one study conducted 15 people stayed awake for 29 hours and their white blood cells were measured. What they found is that their immune system become hyperactive and produced elevated levels of white blood cells, the amounts were typical of what you would expect if you had an illness or disease.
Optimize your sleep and commit to at least 8 hours a night.
You know that a whole foods diet with a variety of vitamins and minerals is the best way to have a healthy immune system but is not always possible. The fact is when we eat processed foods or those with too much salt, sugar and saturated fat, it really messes with the entire ecosystem!
Junk food causes the wrong bacteria and yeast to grow.
When your gut bacteria tilts towards a greater amount of bad bacteria you have less of the good bacteria. These trillions of microbes are what make up your immune system.
90% of your immune system resides in our gut.
This is why poor digestion goes hand in hand with weakened immune function and you aren’t able to fight off bugs like the cold and flu the way you should. Try supplementing with a reputable probiotic to tip the scale to the good bacteria.
Reduced exercise can cause your body to feel lethargic and run down. Movement can support your bodies natural detoxification process, keep your lymph moving, and give a natural boost to a weak immune system.
Not supplementing with a multivitamin
Not getting adequate amounts of Vitamins, minerals and nutrients from your diet can lead to a depressed immune system. Take a multivitamin to fill in nutritional gaps. We recommend Perfect Pass Immune Formula. It comes in powder form or capsules.
If you have a hectic lifestyle and find you are constantly juggling work, children, families or school, just pick up a bottle of Essential Multi Vitamin & Mineral Spray and throw it in your bag. Anytime you feel your immune system could be compromised take a few sprays. It’s so convenient.
