strengthen your immune system

As people across the globe come to grips with the novel COVID-19 virus, maybe you are one of the many in Kansas City seeking to strengthen your immune system to ward off harmful viruses and other bacteria that cause illnesses. You are not alone.

The human immune system is always our first and best line of defense against outside pathogens that bring infections and sickness. However, modern processed foods, other toxins, stressful working and living conditions, and even our environment can work against us to weaken our natural immunity. A weakened immune system is an open door to recurring illness and depleted health.

Strengthen Your Immune System Naturally

Before the commercial efforts to add preservatives to our foods so they last longer on store shelves, most people raised their own food or procured foods that were raised under more natural, healthy conditions. These foods were grown and delivered fresh, and consumed shortly thereafter, or preserved by old-fashioned canning, a much healthier preserving process.

Our bodies, including our immune system, received everything required to keep us healthy through our food. Now since the introduction of CAFO and GMO operations, producing food for the masses is big business, and companies grow it faster and infuse it with chemicals to last in packaging on the store shelf much longer, to keep profits high. The result is food that contains additives unfamiliar to our bodies. Our digestive tract struggles to process these artificial compounds, and the food contains less of the nutrients we need.

Second to cleaning up and consuming only high-quality foods, the best answer to this problem is nutritional supplements. But swallowing a handful of vitamins daily is not the best path to better health. Studies show that after passing through our digestive systems, we only absorb between 30%-80% of these oral supplements, depending on health, age, and a variety of other factors. Those with digestive disorders will absorb much less.
