Since the Covid 19 coronavirus came into circulation, the body and in particular the immune system "works" in such a way as to react and defend us from a possible attack.
Vaccination has come to the rescue and can help overcome this difficult and complicated period that has lasted for more than a year now. One more tool to raise the defenses and protect us.
Even before the advent of Covid 19, bacteria and viruses circulate in the world every day and the immune system is urged to respond with a physiological mechanism that allows the formation of antibodies. When the immune system encounters a pathogen (virus, bacteria), a series of adverse effects occur that last no more than 2 or 3 days: fever, muscle and joint pain and headache.
SUPPORT YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM
However, it is possible to prepare to decrease the adverse effects by raising the immune defenses.
According to a study published in Nature in 2009, the correlation between the oxidation state and the deficiency of vitamins ( C and E) and micronutrients such as zinc was highlighted and how the presence of these conditions led to a greater presence of adverse effects. Correction of oxidative stress and nutritional deficiencies led to reduced effects and significantly improved the immune response.
Against oxidative stress, vitamin C is a valid remedy. It reduces the total inflammation of the organism, decreasing the substances responsible for oxidative stress: free radicals such as ROS. Vitamin C can be found in many citrus fruits such as orange and lemon, but also in plants such as Rosa canina and Camu Camu.
Grapefruit seed extract also acts as a booster for the immune system, counteracting the action of free radicals. In particular, it is the polyphenols that protect cells from oxidative stress.
Black currant or Ribes nigrum is a natural cortisone that helps the immune system against allergy and flu. It is a powerful anti-inflammatory and also a blood purifier. It stimulates the adrenal glands to produce cortisol, which is known to lower inflammation. It purifies the blood and purifies the body thanks to the presence of tannins and essential oils with diuretic properties. The blackcurrant bud extract is particularly indicated as a generic anti-inflammatory and as a systemic drainage, indicated in cases of asthenia and generalized fatigue.
Even a purification of the body to eliminate toxins prepares the body for the immunogenic response. Draining the toxins allows to lighten the excretory organs (kidneys and liver) and support them to face the toxin load due to the encounter with the pathogen.
