Build Immune Systems
Good nutrition is important to build immune systems. It’s a natural way to boost your body’s immunity to disease.
It’s only natural for people to want to build immune systems — after all, with so many serious diseases, you want to protect your health as best you can. Yet, it can be hard to know which products are most effective in building immunity against various ailments.
Fortunately, studies at both the University of Florida and the University of Arizona found that nutrition provided by whole food supplements supports several important markers of proper immune function.
A whole food supplement is a product in which only the healthiest of foods are compressed and put into capsule form. You will also find whole food supplements in juice form. It's a way to get nutrition from fresh fruits, vegetables, and whole grains without actually eating them.
You can find the supplements we recommend in "Our Top Picks" section.
Nutrition is just one of the components in building a healthy immune system. Depression and stress can also impact your immune system.
Depression has been linked to infection, presumably because depression inhibits the fighting ability of your T cells. A couple of ways to help fight depression is exercise and group participation such as, social groups, work groups and religious groups.
The more your stressed the greater risk of infections. We are all under stress, so the key is your response to handling stress.
We all have different stress reduction techniques. Playing sports, listening to music, getting massages, etc.
But you should remove yourself from a stressful situation immediately. Go to another room or go for a walk around the block. That time out gives you a chance to breathe and react rationally.
Build Immune Systems with Mangosteen
One whole food supplement in juice form is a beverage derived from the celebrated mangosteen fruit.
There has been extensive scientific research done on the antioxidants found in vitamins -- especially Vitamin C & E. Now science has discovered Xanthones - a new classification of highly active phytonutrients. Xanthones are also known as "adaptagens" for their unique ability to adapt and assist the body in different areas.
Science has identified approximately 200 different xanthones. The Mangosteen has an amazing 43 just by itself, including some of the most dynamic xanthones yet studied.
Research on Xanthones, and Garcinia Mangostana (scientific name for the mangosteen), have shown some promising possibilities. We suggest you do some of your own research and look at what is being discovered. For the latest research, go to www.PubMed.gov and search for "xanthones" and "garcinia mangostana."
Over the last 30+ years, independent scientific studies from around the world have been focused on the mangosteen and some of its nutritional components. Its an exciting field, with a lot of potential. Although mangosteen is relatively unknown in North America and Europe, the people of Southeast Asia have used this fruit for centuries in folklore remedies.
The U.S. government has spent billions trying to find a cure for heart disease, cancer, and other diseases.
Disease is easier to PREVENT than it is to cure.
Eat 7-13 servings of fresh fruits and vegetables every day.
Almost no one does.
Whole FOOD SUPPLEMENTS help fill the nutritional gaps.
