An immune system that is healthy and performing at its peak will not only prevent us from getting sick - it can improve our health to such a degree that we can look and feel younger. We will have more energy,* better concentration*, improved memory* - even younger looking skin*.
A healthy immune system is also important for reducing our risk of developing health issues such as auto-immune disease and potentially, even cancer*. )
Before we go into the best way to strengthen our immune system, let’s go over a few things that can contribute to an unbalanced Immune system:
1. Poor Gut Health* - The gut has a barrier that helps keep any pathogens or bacteria we’ve been exposed to trapped in the digestive system where it’s easy to kill and can’t spread throughout our body. When this lining gets inflamed or damaged, it becomes porous - allowing pathogens easy access to our bloodstream where they can multiply and cause infections. It can also contribute to food sensitivities and allergies.
2. High Stress Levels* - The stress hormone corticosteroid lowers the number of disease-fighting lymphocytes in the blood - reducing the effectiveness of the immune response.
3. Poor Diet - A diet high in fat and sugar can result in lowered immune function as well as excess weight gain, which contributes to inflammation and can further stress the immune system.
4. Toxins, Chemicals, and Pollution - Exposure to environmental toxins have been shown to increase rates of infection in humans. There have been reports of abnormal anti body production as well as an altered number of T cells. .
Creating a Strong, Balanced, Immune System
The obvious answer to creating an Immune System that is efficient, effective, strong, and balanced is a diet high in fiber and vitamin-rich fruits and vegetables, plenty of exercise, and a low-stress, pollution and chemical-free lifestyle.
However, as a busy working mother of three, I know how unrealistic that can be for most people.
It is for me, anyway, which is why I decided to look into supplements as a way to help me achieve similar results to what a perfect lifestyle would get me.
This is where JuniperLife’s Fortify comes in.
Most immune boosters can’t be used everyday - and manna are not safe if you have an auto-immune disease.
Most immune boosters can’t be used everyday - and many are not safe if you have an auto-immune disease.
These products focus only on “boosting” the immune system - which entails a ramping up of killer cells and immune response, which is useful if one is actively fighting a cold or other virus, but can wear out or even damage the immune system if used for long periods of time.
Reasons why I use Fortify
It is designed to actively “train” the immune system to become smarter and more efficient - not overactive.
It’s safe for daily use and for people who suffer from auto-immune conditions.
It helps improve gut health.
It improves our response to stress
Helps with workout recovery (apparently, your immune response is significantly lowered for about 60 minutes after exercise).
It reduces chronic inflammation.
It supports liver function and detox.
Transfer Factors – Transfer factors are molecules that are filled with memory cells which contain information that tells our immune system the fastest way to defeat the viruses or bacteria we encounter on a day to day basis.
Zinc – An essential nutrient that ensures proper functioning of the immune and digestive system
Olive Leaf Extract – An antioxidant more powerful than green tea that exhibits antiviral and antifungal characteristics
Yeast Betagucans – found in various mushrooms, cereal grains, and baker’s yeast, these help make the immune system smarter and more efficient – but not overactive, which can help prevent complications from those who suffer from an overactive immune system (ie: an auto immune disorder).
Reishi Mushroom – Rich in polysaccharides which boost the health of the immune system
Cordyseps Sinesis – Scientific studies have shown that cordyseps sinesis enhances Natural Killer (NK) cell Activity and improves oxygen utilization.
It All Adds Up to One Amazing Product
Each of these ingredients can be found in Fortify by JuniperLife, which was designed to support the immune system, improve workout recovery, and reduce inflammation.
Most of all - I love how it helps keeps me healthy despite my hectic life. Sick days are a luxury I just cannot afford right now, so every time I feel a sniffle or my kids come home with something, I double up on the dose and it helps me avoid getting sick. That, to me, is priceless.
