System Check: How's Your Immunity?
It's happening…we are officially moving into fall! Cooler weather, leaves changing color, football season and pumpkin spice everything! We are also approaching cold and flu season, so it’s a great time to check in on our wellness plans and make sure our immune system is strong, supported and ready to fight.
Antioxidants such as zinc, vitamin A and vitamin C are critical when it comes to maintaining a healthy and strong immune system. That’s because they fight off free radicals - molecules that actually steal electrons from other healthy molecules. Antioxidants neutralize and eliminate the free radicals from the bloodstream, keeping our bodies functioning at optimum levels. Because free radicals are so pervasive, we need a constant supply of antioxidants to disarm them. Our body’s cells naturally produce some powerful antioxidants but because of the addition of environmental free radicals, we need to take in more antioxidants from outside sources - like food and supplements - to neutralize them.
Vitamin C is a superstar antioxidant, supporting virtually every aspect of your immune system. In addition to supporting natural killer cells (they eliminate infectious targets), neutrophils (they fight bacterial infections), antibodies (they identify & destroy invading threats) and lymphocites (they produce the antibodies) – Vitamin C fights free radicals too, acting as a barrier against invading infections, viruses and diseases.
Here’s a fun fact you may already know - antioxidant rich fruit powders and Vitamin C are incorporated into all of Glotrition’s products! Glotrition is not only the ideal way to improve your skin from the inside out (because of its Bioactive Collagen Peptide!), it’s an easy way to support your immune health every day.
