MANILA, Philippines - Did you know that the bodyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢sÃ‚Â immune system is our amazing, complex way to fend off foreign bacteria and viruses which cause infections or illnesses? The immune system recognizes viruses, bacteria, fungi, parasites, and foreign bodies, and signals the brain to activate the immune processes.
The first line of defense is the skin and mucous membranes in the mouth, nose, and other areas that prevent the intrusion of harmful agents. Just imagine what will happen if an intruder enters the body and the first line of defense is not strong enough to ward off or attack the harmful trespasser. A research conducted at Loma Linda University in California and reported in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition shows that sugar suppresses immunity. Drinking 24 ozs. of soda (which contains sugar) depresses the activity of neutrophils (the white blood cells responsible for fighting infection) by 50 percent.
Boosting your bodyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s immune system can help halt the onset of frequent colds, arthritis, and even cancer. Avoid excessive stress as it can also compromise your immune system. Nutrition and physical activity play a vital role in supporting the bodyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s immune system. Wheatgrass is known to enhance immunity. Easy Pha-max Wheatgrass is an excellent and unique source of nutrition which utilizes the roots and leaves of wheatgrass, and is processed using the multi-awarded aeroponic technology to actually help regulate the bodyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s immune system, strengthen its deficiencies, and reduce overactive systems.Ã‚Â
Easy Pha-max wheatgrass contains high levels of chlorophyll, vitamins, minerals, amino acids, enzymes, and proteins.Ã‚Â HereÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s how Easy Pha-max Wheatgrass acts in four interrelated ways in the body. First, the enzymatic activity supports the transformation and absorption of nutrients. Second, the alkaline nutrients found in abundance in Easy Pha-max Wheatgrass help the digestive system. Third, the high level of chlorophyll in wheatgrass juice helps in blood oxygenation, and because minerals and trace elements can be easily absorbed, there is a significant increase in blood quality. Fourth, blood quality leads to improved blood circulation.
