When it comes to fighting viruses like coronavirus, one method is to have a strong immune system. Please note that the contents of this article are not intended to prevent, treat, or cure Covid-19. Your immune system defends you against disease-causing microorganisms, but sometimes it fails and you get sick. And, as you age, your immune
response capability becomes reduced. Ways that we can ensure our immune systems stay as strong as possible, shielding us the best they can, is to nourish the body.
One of the best ways to do this is to feed the cells of our body powerful nutrients such as Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Turmeric, Moringa, Ashwagandha, and Iron. In feeding our bodies these vitamins we are fueling ourselves on a
cellular level, strengthening our immune system as if it were a stallion.
Vitamin A helps regulate the immune system and protect against infections by keeping skin and tissues in the mouth, stomach, intestines and respiratory system healthy. Vitamin C supports the immune system by forming antibodies.
Moringa is so nutrient-dense that it alone contains 25x more Iron than spinach, 7x more Vitamin C than oranges, 4x more Vitamin A than carrots, and 4x more Calcium than milk.
Turmeric and Nirgundi also provide us with powerful protection and benefits. Traditionally known for its anti-inflammatory effects, Curcumin (the active compound in Turmeric) has been shown in the last two decades to be a potent immunomodulatory agent thus serving as a therapy for immune disorders. Nirgundi is a common ingredient in various healing sciences and is an analgesic and anti-inflammatory.
Ashwagandha also naturally improves the body’s defense against disease by improving immunity. It is a highly esteemed adaptogenic super-root which possesses potent antioxidant properties that help protect against cellular
damage caused by free radicals!
Battling disease and viruses naturally also includes methods of prevention and wellness such as getting adequate rest (lowers stress hormones which, if elevated, can increase susceptibility of disease), exercise (promotes the
regeneration of antibodies and proper circulation of white blood cells), and getting sunshine (low levels of Vitamin D are linked to a greater risk of respiratory illness).
These are all suggestions for ways to prepare the body from the inside-out in its protection and fight against disease and illness. We are firm believers in plant medicine and the powerful impact it has on overall mind-body health and functioning. Thank you for reading along and we hope that you stay safe
