This month, we are giving 10% off a powerful immunity booster, Anabolic Laboratories Zinc Lozenges with Vitamin C.
Zinc, a nutrient found throughout your body, helps your immune system and metabolism function. According to research from the Mayo Clinic, zinc supplements help with:
Colds. Evidence suggests that if zinc lozenges or syrup is taken within 24 hours after cold symptoms start, the supplement can help shorten the length of colds. However, the use of intranasal zinc has been linked with the loss of the sense of smell, in some cases long term or permanently.
Wound healing. People with skin ulcers and low levels of zinc might benefit from oral zinc supplements.
Diarrhea. Oral zinc supplements can reduce the symptoms of diarrhea in children with low levels of zinc, such as from malnutrition. There isn’t enough evidence to recommend the use of oral zinc for children with diarrhea who have a healthy, varied diet.
Age-related macular degeneration. Research suggests that oral zinc might slow the progression of this eye disease.
There also are many foods that boost the immune system
Using Zinc helps enhance a diet that is rich in vitamin C. Vitamin C is thought to increase the production of white blood cells, which are key to fighting infections.
Citrus fruits help the immune system
Citrus fruits are high in vitamin C. With such a variety to choose from, it’s easy to add them to almost any meal. Squeeze some in your salad dressings, marinades, and water. Popular citrus fruits include grapefruit, oranges, clementines, tangerines, lemons, limes.
Garlic is known to boost the immune system.
Garlic is found in almost every cuisine in the world. It adds a healthy kick to food and it’s really valuable for your health.
Early civilizations recognized its value in fighting infections. Garlic may also slow down the hardening of the arteries, and there’s even some evidence that it helps lower blood pressure. Garlic’s immune-boosting properties seem to come from a heavy concentration of sulfur-containing compounds, such as allicin.
Surprisingly, red peppers are super high in vitamin C
According to an article on Healthline.com, “Ounce for ounce, red bell peppers contain almost 3 times as much vitamin C (127 mg) as a Florida orange (45 mg). They’re also a rich source of beta carotene.” Eat them plain, or chop them for use in salads and sauces.
Other foods that help increase your immune system include:
The bottom line: it’s time to boost your immune system ready before the fall and winter seasons.
The leaves are changing and the days are getting shorter. Kids are in school. We all know that this is when colds and flu are going around. Not to mention, we all need to stay safe healthy to avoid getting COVID.
Stop in and grab a bottle of the Zinc lozenges. We look forward to seeing you soon.
