Immune Support

  1. Flu immunity boosted with omega-3s

    Fight the flu with this secret from the sea

    It's the "secret sauce" in your flu-fighting strategy... a powerful series of compounds that can arm your immune system so that it's locked, loaded, and ready for battle.

    And yet this key benefit gets almost NO attention!

    When people talk about fish oil, you'll hear them sing its praises over how much it can help your heart, brain, and circulation.

    Those are all terrific benefits, of course -- but the same omega-3 fatty acids found in fish oil can do so much more, especially now, in winter.

    They can help give your immune system just what it needs to fend off infections, including the cold, flu, and "winter yuck" spreading faster than a rumor right now.

    New research shows how one omega-3 in particular, DHA, can help activate an essential component of your immune system.

    Boosting your DHA intake flips the "ON" switch on your B cells, which are a type of white blood cell needed to fight off infection.

    Once triggered by that DHA, those B cells then stimulate antibody production by your immune system, according to the new study.

    In some ways, that's exactly how a vaccine is supposed to work... yet you can get this same response from a safe and natural omega-3 fatty acid... and not from a needle filled with mercury and other toxins.

    But that's not all it can do.

    The same study finds that DHA can also enhance your immune system in at least two other critical ways.

    First, it can stimulate the secretion of another essential immune system component, called TNF-alpha, which your body calls on to fight off everything from viruses to cancer cells.

    And second, DHA can also get your immune system to crank out an inflammation-fighting compound called interleukin-10.

    To cap it all off, the study finds that the benefits go to the very people who need help the most: those who are overweight and obese, who often get sick more easily from the toll of the extra weight.

    But it's that B-cell boost that might be the most important part of this study, as that's the very same defense mechanism your immune system relies on to protect you from everyday infection threats.

    And B cells are especially critical when it comes to flu. As a 2011 study in the Journal of Immunology points out:

      "Each particular aspect of influenza infection is countered by a complex set of B cell responses that can prevent infection from occurring; when infections do occur, they can suppress early viral replication, help clear the infection, aid in tissue repair, and generate potent memory responses."

    In other words, one key to an infection-free winter is in arming your B cells.

    And as the new study shows, there's nothing out there better for those Bs than the omega-3 fatty acids in fish oil.

  2. Flu can spread just from breathing

    Frightening new flu study shows how fast it spreads

    Here's some news that's absolutely NOT going to make your day: It's a whole lot easier to spread the flu than scientists had realized.

    And that means it's a whole lot easier to CATCH it, too!

    I'm not here to spread alarm. In a moment, I'll give you a quick science-backed tip that's guaranteed to cut your flu risk even in light of this latest news.

    But first, the new study that's making big headlines right now, smack in the middle of one of the worst flu seasons in years.

    Most folks -- even docs and scientists -- previously thought that the main way you spread the virus in the air is through coughing and sneezing.

    Turns out, the virus is a whole lot trickier.

    If you're even NEAR someone with the flu, it can practically jump out and attack you even if they don't cough or sneeze.

    Just BREATHING can spread the virus!

    The flu almost makes its own aerosol. When that guy sitting next to you exhales, tiny flu-infected droplets float out into the air, creating an invisible cloud of infection around both of you.

    OK, no big deal. Don't hang around someone with flu, right?

    Well, not so easy.

    In what just might be the scariest part of the study, this FLU MIST is at its worst when you FIRST get sick!

    You know what it's like early on. You know something's up, but you don't quite know what it is yet. It might feel like allergies or a cold. It might not feel all that bad, and people around you might not even notice that you're sick.

    But you're sick. You don't know it yet, but you're sick -- and as the new study shows, the virus is already working to spread itself.

    You're practically a flu machine!

    Call it one more reason to stay home when you're sick -- and a BIGGER reason to avoid family and friends who are getting ill, even if it doesn't seem "all that bad."

    Of course, you don't always know when you're around people who are sick, so take three steps to protect yourself.

    First, that virus can't get in your body if you cover up, so don't be shy about wearing a surgical mask out in public, especially if flu is spreading fast where you live.

    Second, wash up... and wash often. Use alcohol-based sanitizers when you're out and plenty of soap and water when you're at home.

    And third, juice up your immune system with the flu-fighting protocol you read all about in last month's Health Revelations, including both vitamin D and NAC supplements taken every day, especially here in flu season.

  3. CDC’s flu advice could be deadly

    CDC flu advice could turn out to be DEADLY It's downright maddening.
