This Winter Strengthen Your Immune System

When cold and flu season hits, will you be ready?

The 2010 cold and flu season could go down as one of the worst in recent history. In addition to the seasonal flu, there is a new threat making waves this winter: the H1N1 virus. Classified by the World Health Organization as a pandemic, H1N1 has spread across the globe and has been traced to numerous deaths, mostly among those afflicted whose health was already compromised.

A healthy immune system is one of the best responses to a dastardly flu season and nutritional products from The AIM Companies are up to the task.

Antioxidants are a key defense against free radicals, the unstable oxygen molecules associated with most diseases and the major cause of damage to body tissue, genetic material and cell membranes.

Free radicals are the forceful bullies of the body, pressuring other molecules into joining their destructive gang. Antioxidants are the peace keepers - the good guys - that disarm free radicals and turn them into productive molecules for your immune system. No nutrient turns bad guys into good guys quite like the antioxidant.

Fruits and vegetables are a good source of antioxidants. You can do your body a favor by bulking up on these good foods during flu season. However, with the variety of produce waning in winter months, antioxidants get harder to come by, which could be a reason for the seasonal effect of the flu. As such, daily antioxidant supplementation becomes the best way to enable the immune system to ward off illnesses year-round. 

Proancynol 2000 is one of many products from The AIM Companies that can help out in this regard. Getting a variety of antioxidants is important for boosting the immune system and Proancynol offers seven from sources like green tea extract, grape seed extract, and selenium, all of which enhance the immune system.

In addition to those sources, Proancynol also provides rosemary extract, N-acetylcysteine, alpha-lipoic acid, and lycopene - antioxidants that target specific free radicals and body tissue.

There are other products from AIM to help boost antioxidants. The Garden Trio - featuring BarleyLife, Just Carrots and RediBeets - provides your body with a daily source of absorbable vitamins, minerals, enzymes, phytochemicals, protein, amino acids and chlorophyll. FloraFood helps balance the friendly intestinal flora in your digestive tract so when any bugs attack, you’ll have the advantage.

With The AIM Companies on your side, you never have to brave the winter blast on your own. Build up your immune system and survive the hazardous flu season the healthy, natural way - with antioxidant nutrition from The AIM Companies.
