The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the way we interact socially and how we think about our health. In addition to taking extra hand washing precautions and keeping a safe distance from others, a strong immune system can be your greatest defense against this COVID-19 virus.
REJUVENATE Boosts Your Immune System
Never before has it been so important to boost our immune system to protect ourselves from contracting and potentially spreading a virus. Common immune boosters include foods rich in Vitamin C, Vitamin D supplements, garlic, turmeric, kale and essential amino acids like REJUVENATE Muscle Health.
“A deficiency of dietary protein or amino acids has long been known to impair immune function and increase the susceptibility of animals and humans to infectious disease.”1
Essential amino acids play an important role in immune function and supporting the immune system when fighting infection. They are critical to protein synthesis and the formation of white blood cells and antibodies. All of which are required for your body to fight off infectious disease. Evidence reported in the British Journal of Nutrition shows that dietary supplementation of amino acids enhances the immune system. Our immune systems are highly dependent on amino acids for making key proteins that are required to maximize immune function.
“The immune system has a high dependence upon protein synthesis, since mounting an immune response requires generation of new cells and synthesis of antigen-presenting machinery, immunoglobulins, cytokines, cytokine receptors, acute phase proteins etc.”2
Not only does our immune system need all essential amino acids, research in the Journal of Nutrition reports that the specific amino acids leucine, valine and iso-leucine are absolutely essential to immune function. REJUVENATE has a high concentration of these essential amino acids.
When your immune system is fighting infection, the body will breakdown lean muscle in order to supply the amino acids it needs to support optimal immune function. Not only can REJUVENATE help reduce this muscle breakdown, but it has been clinically proven to help your body rebuild and repair muscle by 57%. You preserve valuable muscle which supports your health and vitality and strengthens your immune system to fight off infection.
At the current time, due to the Covid-19 virus many of us are at home and getting little to no exercise. This sedentary state also contributes to your body breaking down valuable lean muscle tissue. After the age of 40 we lose 1-3% of our muscle per year. This muscle loss can decrease your strength and mobility and also increase the risk or weight gain, type 2 diabetes, osteoporosis and other metabolic disorders.
Taking REJUVENATE on a daily basis can help you slow muscle loss due to aging while supporting your immune system to help you effectively fight infection and stay healthy.
