Avoid Getting Sick This Cold & Flu Season
As summer slips away and we settle into Fall, it’s inevitable that cold and flu season will soon arrive. Being sick isn’t fun, and neither is missing out on work, events, and life in general because you are under the weather. There are a number of things we can do to keep our immune systems healthy and prevent illness. This includes getting good sleep, hiking up your vitamin intake, eating healthy, avoiding alcohol, and washing your hands before eating or touching your face. Among these actions, we can also provide a boost to our immune systems and reduce down time from sickness with an Immunity Drip from RevIVed Hydration. Vitamin C, B Vitamins, Zinc, and your body's most powerful antioxidant - Glutathione - create the perfect cocktail for strengthening your immunity and helping decrease the amount of time your sick. This drip will help prevent and reverse any effects of disease and bacteria and cleanse your vital organs.
Here is a list of each vitamin and mineral and why it will help you this cold and flu season!
One of the most important functions of Vitamin C is to support and energize the immune system. The immune system needs a sufficient amount of Vitamin C to “perform its task”. Without enough vitamin C, the immune system will weaken and loose its ability to fight certain bacteria, pathogens, and diseases. Many studies have shown that Vitamin C supplementation shortens the duration and mitigates the severity of colds and can also prevent them from developing!
B Vitamins play a crucial role in growth and development by turning the food we eat into energy to fuel our bodies. B vitamins support many biochemical reactions to help support the immune system. Deficiencies in B Vitamins can lead to a reduction in energy and immune function.
Zinc is a major contributor in helping your immune system fight infection. Zinc is crucial for normal development and function of the cells that help fight off infections. Zinc also acts as an antioxidant to help rid the body of oxidative stress and inflammation.
Glutathione is a compound that most people have never heard of even thought it is a very important antioxidant that plays a key role in the overall health of your body. Glutathione is said the to be the “the mother of all antioxidants”. Just like Zinc, Glutathione plays a key role in supporting the cells that help fight off infection such as T cells, macrophages, B cells and lymphocytes.
