Why Building Immunity is Important for Defending Yourself Against Coronavirus
As the new coronavirus continues to spread across Canada, having a robust immune system is more important than ever. Just like minimising outdoor travel is crucial to our survival, so is preparing our body to fight off the virus in the case of exposure.
Our immune system may not function well if our bodies suffer from stress, a lack of exercise or unhealthy diet — all of which are unfortunately common in our hectic lifestyles of today. Therefore, in these times, our immune system needs additional support to maintain our body’s health.
Moringa: The Immunity Booster
Moringa is known as the ‘miracle tree’ — for good reason.
The plant, which is native to tropical and subtropical regions of South Asia, has nutrient-rich leaves that are powdered and consumed to reap numerous health benefits. Taking this superfood powder daily may help detoxify the body, boost stamina, soothe joint pain, regulate blood sugar levels and prevent cancer.
The Moringa plant is also touted as a mighty immunity booster with a higher concentration of antioxidants than many fruits and vegetables. Its leaves are packed with vitamins A, B and E as well as minerals like iron, protein, calcium and potassium — all in higher amounts than such superfoods as strawberries, carrots, hot peppers and soybean1.
This explains why Moringa is trusted in herbal medicine for fortifying the immune system2 against germ particles, bacteria and viruses circulating in our environment.
As the world scrambles to cope with the rapidly spreading COVID-19, it’s our responsibility to protect our families from coronavirus, so we slow its transmission, prevent the overburdening of the healthcare system and protect the vulnerable from contracting the potentially lethal disease.
