Are You Prone for the Flu? This Holiday Treat Increases your Risk.

Research indicates the function of your immune system is damaged almost immediately after the consumption of sugar.  Sugar is present in foods you may not even suspect.  Products such as ketchup, lunch meats, breads and your favorite fruit juices are laced with this deadly substance.

The sugar in one can of soda can be enough to suppress your body’s immune defenses by 30 percent or more for a three-hour period!

The majority of illnesses characterized by fever, fatigue, couch and aching muscles are not cause by the flu virus.  Over-eating and unhealthy portion control has been linked to a damaged immune system, diabetes, heart disease and the obesity epidemic that Americans face today!

Sugar produces local and systemic inflammation of your body.  The digestive tract plays a significant role in the strength of your immune system.  Reducing/Eliminating sugar will aide in proper digestion and absorption of key vitamins and minerals needed for a healthy immune response to the flu.

The immune system is the body’s defense system designed to fight off bacterial infections, viral infections, and the flu!  Your Maximized Living Health Center is equipped to guide you to specific supplements that may support your immune system.  Some of these may include oil of oregano, effective for viral infections, and probiotics to support your immune system while maintaining healthy intestinal flora.
