The autumn season is always cherished for the beautiful colours of the leaves, however this time of the year is also often accompanied by gloomy weather, rain and yes, viruses. In order to defend your body against such viruses, including the current widespread culprit we have come to know as COVID-19, you need to have a strong and healthy immune system; hence vitamin C to the rescue!
It’s a well know fact that vitamin C helps our immune systems fight off bacteria and viruses. Its important role in protecting against viral infections has been instilled in us by our parents and health care providers since childhood. Vitamin C stimulates our immune response and helps combat fatigue and stress; as well as other underlying factors that help contribute to the development of many diseases.
And it’s not just viruses that we should worry about. Emotional and psychological stress is one of the leading causes of oxidative stress, which in turn leads to chronic inflammation in the body; the consequences of which can include:
• heart and blood vessel diseases
• autoimmune diseases
• and even cancer
Vitamin C plays an important role in the prevention of disease, and can also be an effective part of treatment, once illness has set in; this includes common cold and flu, viral infections, and may even pertain to more severe illnesses such as COVID-19 or cancer.
Minerals also play an important role
In addition to vitamin C, minerals such as zinc and selenium are also very important for our body’s defense system:
• Selenium helps stimulate immune response and protects against oxidative stress
• Zinc supports healthy metabolism and immune function, and helps maintain the integrity of our bones, hair and skin
At a time like this, as we battle an onslaught of stress and viral disease, it is imperative that we ensure a sufficient intake of these essential nutrients.
Ensuring ample intake of vitamin C and minerals
The major issue we face today is that the fruits and vegetables we commonly buy contain much less nutrients, namely vitamins and minerals, than they did during our grandparents‘generation. This can be attributed to over-cultivation, as well as transportation and storage methods.
Scientific research conducted from 1985 to 2002, clearly shows that apples for example have lost as much as 60% of their vitamin C content. This is why nutrient supplementation has become so critical. Akuna has the solution in a bottle, the specially formulated premium liquid supplement: Aku4 Complex.
Aku4 Complex contains:
• cranberry juice and pomegranate juices (loaded with powerful antioxidants)
• and most importantly every daily dose delivers 1500 mg of vitamin C
It can help boost your immune response and reduce fatigue, while contributing to proper metabolic functions and supporting the body’s collagen formation to maintain healthy bones, cartilage, teeth and gums.
There is no better way to prepare your body for combat!
