These Bad Foods Weaken Your Immune System ... What Not to Eat
Today, keeping your immune system as robust as possible is critical to protect yourself against viruses. Everyone can benefit from improved health and healthy habits. Good nutrition is one of the most critical keys to a strong immune system and a healthy life.
According to David Minkoff, M.D., the founder of LifeWorks Wellness Center and BodyHealth, here’s what not to put in your body that can damage or impair your immune system, “I've said it so many times but I really want to bring this home:
- Artificial ingredients
- Herbicides in non-organic, GMO foods
- Artificial stimulants
- Toxic chemicals that are in many processed foods and a majority of sports nutrition supplements (unless they specifically say they are not)
It’s not that these things don't help your immune system; it’s that they actively impair it, reducing its ability to fight off illness and recover.
Remember, while toxins in the body add up at a rate of 1 + 1 = 2, they're effect on the body is more like 1 + 1 = 10. For every increase, or every new toxin, the effect felt by the body is not 2x but 10x, and the reduction in immune ability is the same.
So, during this time when we have a virus going around that we still have not wrapped our wits around fully, it's even more important to EAT ORGANIC and remove any products from your shelf with artificial ingredients, chemicals or stimulants that rob your body of it's natural energy stores or lower your body's immune ability. That way your immune system is at its optimum and ready to do its best to protect you from any illness coming your way.”
Putting sound advice into action is the most important step on your journey to optimal health. So, take the time out of your busy day and do something important for yourself and your loved ones.
