Super Support – Avoiding Germs
Are you a germaphobe? Do you avoid pushing buttons in the elevator
and attempt to open doors with your elbows? Do you hold your breath when a
colleague at work coughs or sneezes? If so, take heart, there is another
way to live your life and protect yourself against germs and resulting
illnesses. There is something out there so powerful and so wonderfully
abundant and it is readily available to everyone. The name of such an
indispensable solution? Antioxidants!
Death to the Radicals: Keeping disease at bay
Antioxidants are vitamins, nutrients and minerals that can protect against
"oxidative damage" and help repair our cells. By now many of us have heard
of “free radicals” and the havoc they play on our healthy cells every day.
They cause damage to cells and DNA which can leave the body susceptible to
disease. Researchers have long thought that there is a correlation between
cellular damage and diseases such as cancer and heart disease, not to
mention a compromising of the immune system as a result of damaged cells,
which can leave you vulnerable to illnesses like colds and the flu.
Although further studies are still being conducted to form concrete
conclusions about the links between antioxidants and disease, many believe
that by fortifying your body with high levels of antioxidants, you may
prevent these “free radicals” from pillaging your good health. 1
Eating away at you: Rich Antioxidant Foods
Some stellar examples of antioxidant-enriched food include vegetables like
broccoli, asparagus, carrots, sweet potatoes, bell peppers, seafood which
can contain essential omega-3 fatty acids, whole grains, berries, apples
and an array of other fruits as well as many additional sources. Eating a
balanced diet full of vegetables, fruits, whole grains and fish (and some
meat) can turn your body into a lean, mean free radical fighting machine.
The only trick is to stick with the healthy eating and couple it with a
steady amount of exercise. It takes some discipline, but this kind of
dedication to healthy living pays off big. The reward can be lessening your
risk of certain diseases like Alzheimer’s, heart disease, cancers and
hypertension to name a few. 2,3
Fast food culture: What not to eat
Probably nothing is more counterproductive to your healthy antioxidant
pursuits than a trip to the local fast food joint (unless you restrain
yourself and order a salad-with minimal dressing.) It is understandable
that you won’t be able to eat a perfectly balanced diet replete with fresh
fruit and vegetables every single day. Fortunately, free radical-fighting
antioxidant enriched supplements are available. That way, you’re always
covered, even if you give in to the siren call of a cheeseburger and large
fries every once in a while.
Antioxidant armor: Superior supplement
The heart healthy supplement CoQ10 strengthens the heart muscle, increases
energy levels, gives a boost to the immune system and slows the aging
process among many other benefits. One of the better-known antioxidant rich
supplements is Omega-3. Omega-3 promotes healthy cardiovascular function
while fortifying the body’s immune system, aiding brain and eye function
and decreasing risk of stroke and joint inflammation all with superior
So cough away Mr. Co-worker. You’re feeling healthy and strong. En Garde!
