What Else Can I do for Viral Support?

This is a common question for those of us looking for alternative methods and nutrient supplementation with the hope of keeping us out of the hospital during the COVID-19 pandemic.

While the Bay Area is doing our best by practicing social distancing to avoid exposure to this virus, we must also do what we can to help support our own immune systems in the event that we do have contact. In order to have a good response to a virus we must keep our bodies healthy and replenish nutrients in order to help reach that goal.

That means exercising regularly, drinking plenty of water (we recommend 100 ounces a day!), and eating a well-balanced diet full of organic vegetables that are rich in phytochemicals and antioxidants. There are many components to our adaptive immune system that reacts to viruses and we can support those components with nutrition.

For an upgraded dose of viral support we recommend adding Nutri-West’s Total VR-X to your daily routine. This highly potent viral support supplement is a combination of olive leaf, elderberry extract, astragalus, glycerol monolaurate, lysine, and vitamin C.

Researchers have observed that olive leaf extract may be contributory during cold-flu season for immune support. (Roxas M, Jurenka J. Altern Med Rev. 2007 Mar;12(1):25-48)

Several studies indicate that vitamin C, elderberry, and astragalus are useful for viral support as well. (Vlachojannis JE, et al.A systematic review on the sambuci fructus effect and efficacy profiles. Phytother Res. 2010 Jan;24(1):1-8)

Total- VRX can help aid our body’s defense mechanisms. The more we can do to help maintain homeostasis of our body’s immune system, the stronger we will be fight this virus and it’s possible mutations to come.
