With the world in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, we’re all focusing on immune health more than ever before. The Protein Pantry diet system is not only designed to promote healthy eating but your overall health as well. Our diet system provides immune support as part of our mission to improve your overall quality of life. These are just a few ways that the Protein Pantry diet system from Simplistic Wellness will boost your immune system.
Protein builds immune cells and heals the body
When it comes down to some of the simplest levels of biology, protein is a necessary building block. Protein helps your body repair damaged and especially immunity cells. Protein Pantry’s diet system provides high-protein foods that will encourage your body to heal itself and create antibodies that are needed to fight off bacterial and viral infections.
Limiting added sugars
A strong body is a healthy body. Obesity can lead to other dangerous conditions like type 2 diabetes and heart disease weaken your immune system. Similar to allocating personnel to a project, your immune system has a limited amount to go around. If your body is busy trying to fight off the effects of a condition such as heart disease, there aren’t as many antibodies available to fight pathogens as they’re introduced to the body. This leaves you more vulnerable to bacteria and viruses. Products from Protein Pantry’s diet system low net carb items that don’t encourage such conditions.
Healthy fats provide an anti-inflammatory response
Similar to preventing heart disease and type 2 diabetes, foods that promote an anti-inflammatory response in the body promote overall immune support. Certain health conditions and foods elicit an inflammatory response within the body. This response then draws antibodies to the inflammation site to combat the condition. Healthy fats from oils such as corn, vegetable, and soy work to combat inflammation so your body doesn’t have to. Again, this encourages antibodies to fight infection in other parts of the body.
Loaded with vitamins
We always hear about how we need to be getting more vitamin C to boost immunity. While this is true, there are other vitamins that will provide immune support as well. Vitamins A, B6, and E are great sources of immunity. Seeking out foods like eggs, orange and yellow fruits and vegetable, and dark green, leafy vegetables are all great sources for Vitamin A. Beef, poultry, and starchy vegetables are excellent places to get vitamin B6, while almonds, sunflower seeds, peanuts, and red bell peppers provide high levels of vitamin E. If you don’t feel like you’re getting enough of the vitamins you need, take supplements that are a part of Protein Pantry’s diet system.
