COVID-19 Crisis - Part 2
Part 2: HOW TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF SUPERFOODS FOR YOUR IMMUNITY
Posted on April 08, 2020
In our previous article, we discussed the novel Coronavirus, COVID-19.
We talked about what the virus is, how you can take measures to prevent contracting the virus, and what you can do to support your body’s immune system to help protect yourself from the severity of the virus and how you can use superfoods for immunity.
Your Daily Dose of Superfoods
If you've been to the grocery store lately, then you know that the shelves are empty, and finding fresh, clean foods that will fuel your body and your immune system is becoming harder to come by.
This is why we are thankful we have our Detox Organics Daily Superfood.
There are three major things about Detox Organics that make it the perfect supplement in a time like this.
At a moment where finding fresh fruits and vegetables is becoming more of a challenge, Detox Organics provides a helping of over 25 raw, organic superfoods.
These organic superfoods provide essential nutrients that you would typically get from consuming clean fruits and vegetables.
Second, Detox Organics Daily Superfood works to boost the body's natural immune system, and if ever there was a time when you needed your immune system to be at its best, it's now.
Finally, this superfood supplement works to decrease inflammation throughout the body.
When you consume a daily dose of the Detox Organics Superfood, you can be on your way to reducing your body's inflammation, giving you a healthy advantage over the Coronavirus.
Superfoods Lower Inflammation in the Body
Inflammation isn’t just a symptom of COVID-19, but it is the leading cause of most fatal diseases today.
The ingredients in Detox Organics Daily Superfood have been carefully chosen for their ability to give your body a boost and fight inflammation for this very reason.
Every scoop of Detox Organics Daily Superfood includes a total of 25 superfoods, each one providing their own scientifically proven benefits.
These ingredients work together to reduce inflammation and prevent disease.
These ingredients reduce inflammation in the body, starting in the gut.
When you reduce inflammation in the gut, you support your digestive system, helping it absorb nutrients from the foods you consume.
If you remember from Part 1 of our series, when a person contracts the Coronavirus, their lungs can become inflamed.
This inflammation can then spread through the body and affect other organs.
Ideally, you want to reduce inflammation in the body as much as possible, with the idea of reducing symptoms and severity.
Superfoods Boost the Immune System
As of today, there is no cure for COVID-19, and your best defense is your own immune system.
If your own immune system is needed to beat the virus, you need to be sure your immune system is as strong as possible.
You can do this by eating superfoods for your immunity.
If you’ve been using Detox Organics Daily Superfoods, then you know about the immune-boosting power of this supplement.
It does this by supporting your body’s natural detoxing system, helping it remove toxins from the body, and preventing inflammation from forming.
Your body naturally detoxes on its own, but as with any system in your body, it can become overwhelmed and overworked, especially when you take into account the environments we live in and the foods that we consume.
Much of the modern diet, along with the pollution you are continually breathing in, contain toxins that your body must then filter out.Over time, this can cause inflammation and begin to break down your immune system.
Here are some signs that your body needs to detox and that your immune system could use some support:
Lack of concentration
Unexplained bloated stomach
Disrupted menstrual cycle
These symptoms could be an early sign of inflammation, and this inflammation can begin to impact your immune system.
When your immune system is lowered, you become more vulnerable to viruses, such as the COVID-19, and the severity of this illness could be worse than it needs to be.
The best way to improve your health and your immune system is through all-natural supplements made up of real foods.
During a time like this, there is nothing more important than your health and your body’s ability to fight back against disease and infection.
Anti-oxidants are the same components found in vitamin C, and they help your body’s immune system by protecting your cells from damage caused by harmful molecules.
Detox Organics Daily Superfoods contains 25 raw, organic superfoods, all of which were specifically chosen to fight inflammation and boost your overall health, something that is crucial in a time like this.
Using this supplement is a simple way of incorporating superfoods for immunity.
Here, we wanted to highlight some of our most crucial ingredients to show what they do for your body and why they were chosen specifically for Detox Organics:
• Acai & Goji Berries - These berries are full of antioxidants and fight inflammation in your body. These little berries may seem small, but they do a big job by working to remove free-radical molecules, which can cause damage to cells, impacting your immune system, and cause inflammation.
• Cayenne - The cayenne has a very important component found in each little pepper, and that is capsaicin. The spicier the pepper, the higher the amount of capsaicin in that pepper. The reason this little compound is so important is that capsaicin is known for its ability to lower inflammation.
• Broccoli, Kale, & Spinach - These veggies, along with other cruciferous veggies, work to suppress inflammation, while also boosting the body’s immunity and supporting gastrointestinal health.
• Lemon - These citrus fruits give your body an added boost of vitamin C, and if you remember from Part 1 of this series, this is an important vitamin that is used to protect cell health and boost your immune system. Citrus fruits like lemons also contain bioflavonoids, which help aid in vitamin C absorption.
• Ginger - This root contains the compound gingerol, which has the ability to reduce inflammation, nausea, vomiting, and migraines, all of which can become symptoms of COVID-19.
• Turmeric - This root contains the compound curcumin and is celebrated for its incredible ability to fight inflammation throughout the body and has been used for thousands of years to do just that.
These are just a few of the ingredients that make us the Detox Organics Daily Superfoods.
Each one was carefully chosen for the amazing abilities to reduce inflammation and help your body detox, so you know your immune system stays in optimal condition.
Staying Active During the Coronavirus Outbreak
All around our nation, and all around the globe, gyms are being closed, and people are being asked to stay home and away from others.
If you are used to hitting the gym and staying active as part of your health routine, then this can be a difficult thing for you to do.
You want to stay healthy, and you know that part of keeping your body in peak health is by working out and staying fit.
If you are avoiding the gym, whether by choice or because they are closed, you don’t have to just sit on the couch and watch Netflix.
During this time, you still need to stay active so that you can keep up with your health.
Remember, your health is extremely important, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Here are some ways you can stay active without needing to go to the gym:
Unless you are quarantined to your house, there are still plenty of places outdoors you can go and still be away from others.Now is a great time to take a hike, go for a run, or discover new parks around your city.
Use Online Workout Videos and Workout Programs
There are hundreds of online workout videos, one app we love for At-Home Workouts with minimal equipment is the HIIT BURN™ app. The trainers are amazing too!
These are great for anyone who is working out in their home for the first time, or for those who are looking to begin a workout routine.
The best part is you can find videos and programs that don't require any equipment to get started.
Use Your Bodyweight
If you don’t have any home equipment to do your workouts, your body weight is an excellent replacement for the equipment.
Types of exercises that use your body weight to help you stay fit include burpees, squats, lunges, pushups, and yoga.
Stay In Touch Online
Just because you are staying away from others doesn’t mean you have to be alone.
Take advantage of our private online community, where you can not only get wellness advice, you can also keep in contact with others who are on a similar journey as you.
By joining a community, you can share tips, tricks, and experiences with one another.
Remember, you are not alone.
What You Should Do If You Get Sick
We are all working to stay healthy and build our immune system, but the fact is that there is a chance you may get sick.
This is why it is so important to do what you can now to make your immune system and body as strong as possible.
We don’t yet have a vaccine available to prevent COVID-19 from spreading from person to person.
Of course, your first goal should be prevention, but when that prevention fails, your goal should be to prevent the spread to others.
If you happen to get sick, don’t panic.
Remember, for most people, the symptoms are mild.
Whether you know you have contracted COVID-19 or not, if you are not feeling well, here are some rules you need to follow:
If you feel unwell, you should stay at home. If you don’t feel well and you don’t think you have the Coronavirus, you should still stay home and stay away from others. Not all symptoms are the same, so it is better to be safe and keep others safe from getting sick.
Call Your Healthcare Provider
If you don’t feel well, contact your healthcare provider. They will be able to advise you on what you should do, and if you need to go in for an appointment, it will allow them to better prepare for your visit.
Many healthcare providers and insurance companies offer virtual doctor’s visits. Take advantage of this.
When to Seek Further Medical Attention
Most people who are sick are able to recover from home. However, if you are sick and your case begins to worsen, seek medical attention right away.
