Coronaviruses are a family of viruses that can cause diseases of the respiratory system ranging from the common cold to a very severe lung infection. In the recent past, two coronaviruses have already caused serious epidemics: SARS between November 2002 and July 2003 and the Sea-CoV identified for the first time in 2012 in the Middle East. At the beginning of this year 2020, a new coronavirus (COVID-19) emanated from China. In the United States, at the time of this article, 108 people as of Wednesday, March 4th at 11am have been diagnosed with the virus resulting in nine deaths.
As is the case with all these types of virus, it is the frail, the elderly and those suffering from chronic illnesses such as asthma, diabetes, heart disease who are likely to fall victim to the most common forms of coronavirus.
Let’s not panic. Simple rules of hygiene can help protect you, like washing your hands frequently with soap and water for the proper length of time. According to CDC, keep at least six feet away from other people, especially if they cough, sneeze or have a fever.
The best way to protect yourself is still to strengthen your immune system.
Strengthen your immune system - 24/7/365
There is no effective cure for these viruses. Antibiotics are ineffective. Prescription and over the counter drug treatments aim to alleviate the symptoms related to the infection and to bring down fever and soothe pain, support respiratory function, etc.
In reality, the only weapon that effectively prevents, fights and eliminates viruses is your own immune system. A weakened immune system allows viruses to reach you and grow. So strengthening your immune system is important every day for the rest of your life, starting today.
There are simple and natural solutions to strengthen your immune defenses.
- Grapefruit seed extract
Interest in grapefruit seeds (GPS) dates back to 1980 in Florida when an amateur gardener discovered that grapefruit seeds thrown on his compost did not decompose. The gardener, Jacob Harich, was also a brilliant PhD, and was intrigued by this phenomenon. That's how studies on the amazing properties of grapefruit seeds began.
Today, we know that grapefruit seed extract (GSE) is a powerful natural antimicrobial antioxidant. These properties allow GSE to help strengthen the bodies’ resistance, and therefore strengthen the immune system.
We offer QuantaEPP, a high quality grapefruit seed extract, produced without heat and without chemicals, which guarantees the preservation and exceptional concentration of active ingredients. Use QuantaEPP daily to promote resistance and support your body's defenses.
- Probiotics – All diseases begin in the gut
Taking a good quality probiotic may help to balance your gastrointestinal system and improve your overall gut health. We now know that 70-80% of your immune system is located within your gastrointestinal system. It’s important to maintain the healthy bacteria in your gut to ensure your defenses against all types of attacks on your immune system.
If you take prescription or over the counter medications or are experiencing stress, there may be an imbalance in your intestinal flora, so it is important to use probiotics to bring it back into balance and support your immunity.
We recommend QuantaFlore offering 5 billion CFU’s of high quality probiotic blend, helping rebalance all areas of the gastrointestinal tract, plus prebiotics to further support healthy bacteria and coriander to soothe digestion.
- Vitamin D3
Vitamin D3 may play an essential role in preventing or reducing the duration of colds, flu and ENT infections. Studies have shown a link between the drop in blood levels of vitamin D and the number and severity of infectious diseases, particularly of the respiratory tract.
There are many high quality Vitamin D supplements available, ask your health practitioner for their recommendation on the best choice for you.
