Autoimmunity and COV1D-19 (2021)

A paper released in the January 2021 edition in Frontiers in Autoimmunity, tested the autoimmune response to COVID-19 on 55 target tissues and organs. They found that “SARS-CoV-2 antibodies had reactions with 28 out of 55 tissue antigens, representing a diversity of tissue groups that included barrier proteins, gastrointestinal, thyroid and neural tissues, and more. “ This implies is that if there is a genetic susceptibility or tendency to an autoimmune condition, and you have an immune response to the virus, you may be triggering

Are you waking up Wrong?

Sleep is vital for so many functions including protecting our mitochondria/DNA/brain from damage via the hormone melatonin which is a very powerful antioxidant. Happy mitochondria give us all the internal energy we need to keep us vital and healthy.  Sleep also helps clear cellular debris, repair/replace old cells, bring down inflammation, and generate neurotransmitters.

Fermented foods have been around since ancient times and are found in cultures around the world–from Roman sauerkraut to India lassi to Korean kimchi.

Supplements

Supplements can provide temporary support to allow your body to heal. But to work effectively, quality matters. Supplements should be made with premium ingredients, minimal fillers, and activated ingredients to help bypass issues with absorption. Click here to learn more.

Even with the finest ingredients, issues with handling and storage can inactivate the best of brands. It is important to know where your supplements come from.
