Covid-19, Elderly People and our Immune System Boost: What do you need to know?


Your risk of getting severely ill from coronavirus increases steadily with your age – but you can improve your chances.

  • Your risks from coronavirus increase as you age
  • Improving your nutrition, exercise, and sleep can all help reduce your risks
  • Keeping your immune system strong is important

Coronavirus is more dangerous to older people. This trend starts above the age of 40 and gets significantly worse over the age of 65. Several studies have linked old age, uncontrolled diabetes, and severe asthma to increased risk of severe effects from coronavirus. Between March 7, 2020 and July 4, 2020, more than 71% of Americans hospitalised with coronavirus were over 50 years old.

There are several reasons that coronavirus can be more dangerous for older people. Old age goes hand-in-hand with a weakened immune system and increased frailty. In addition, older people are more likely to have chronic health conditions, such as diabetes, heart disease, and lung disease, which increase the risk of severe illness or death even more.

Improving your Biological Age: How to shield yourself from the inside


You cannot stop getting older, but you can do a lot to improve your “biological age.” Your biological age is how old your body seems, and it is based on the accumulation of damage to your body’s various cells and tissues. Part of your biological ageing is genetic, which means that part of how well you age was inherited from your parents. However, much of biological ageing depends on your lifestyle and nutrition. This means that eating a healthy diet, getting regular exercise, and not smoking will all improve your biological age. These are not easy things to change, but the good news is that it is never too late to improve your biological age.

Your body depends on the nutrition you give it. You can get the nutrients you need from a well-balanced, varied healthy diet. However, as much as we may plan to have a healthy diet, we more often end up eating based on what foods are convenient and tasty. When your diet is not as good as it should be, supplements can help you to get the nutrients you are missing.

 

Your Immune System & Covid-19


Your immune system is one of your greatest protections against the coronavirus. It protects you from invading viruses, bacteria and parasites. Unfortunately, as you get older, your immune system gradually declines. This means that, when you are exposed to a virus, it is slower to realize that it is under attack, and it does not do as good a job at responding to the attack. This means that the virus has more time to reproduce and spread throughout your body.

In addition, when your body responds to an infection, inflammation occurs. This is a natural response to help your body get rid of damaged cells and to repair its tissues. However, if you have a serious coronavirus infection, an older immune system is more at risk of producing too much inflammation, and this extra inflammation can cause extra tissue damage during the later stages of a serious infection. To make matters worse, older people are more likely to suffer a cytokine storm, where dangerous widespread inflammation and tissue damage occurs.

Covid-19 Immune System Boost


All over the world, researchers are working to develop a coronavirus vaccine. However, once a vaccine is developed, its effectiveness will depend on the age and the sex of the person receiving it. Healthier immune systems are generally better at effectively using vaccines. These are all reasons to keep your immune system as strong and healthy as possible.

Immune system supplements are an easy step that can help to strengthen the immune system. Some supplements, such as our Immune System Boost & Support, have been specially formulated to combine 25 ingredients clinically proven to optimize the immune system and to support healthy lung cells.

Covid-19 & Sleep


In addition to proper nutrition and supplements, getting enough sleep is necessary to keep your immune system strong. Several studies have shown that getting poor quality sleep or too little sleep make you more likely to get sick if you are exposed to a virus. Most adults require seven or eight hours of sleep a night. Even a single night of sleeping only four hours can significantly reduce your immune system and put you at risk. Sleeping less than seven hours a night for several nights in a row can have the same effect as missing a night’s sleep.

However, with the stresses and busy schedules of daily life, it can be difficult to get enough sleep. Having a comfortable, cool, dark bedroom without distracting electronic devices can help improve sleep. In addition, natural supplements like valerian and melatonin can help ease you into sleep. The Deep Sleep supplement contains a mixture of eight natural sleep aids to promote relaxation help speed you into a deep, long sleep.

Keeping your gut healthy

Your gut is filled with microbes – tiny creatures that help you digest your food and absorb the nutrients your body needs. The types of microbes that live in your gut greatly affect your health. Having an unhealthy gut can cause chronic inflammation that has been linked to obesity, depression, heart disease, type II diabetes, and rheumatoid arthritis. The mixture of microbes in your gut is affected by the things you eat, the medications you take, whether you smoke, your gender, and your age.

Probiotic supplements contain beneficial bacteria, and taking them can help improve your gut microbiome. Probiotics help to increase the total number of beneficial microbes in your gut, and having extra beneficial microbes can help suppress the growth of harmful microbes. Probiotics can help improve your digestion and reduce food intolerance. In addition, they can help reduce bowel irritation and its unpleasant effects like gas and diarrhea. Our Gut Protect with Probiotics supplement includes a wide variety of beneficial bacteria to help make and keep your gut healthy.

Protecting yourself from harmful chronic stress

With all of the uncertainty concerning Coronavirus these days, many people are experiencing additional stress. High-pressure jobs, relationship problems, and financial difficulties are also causes of chronic stress, where your body feels stress that continues over a long period of time. Chronic stress can weaken your immune system and lead to recurring illnesses. It can also accelerate the aging process throughout your body, and it has been shown to increase your risk of cognitive decline. In addition, chronic stress has been linked to insomnia, depression, heart disease, and obesity. Research is underway to develop treatments to help reverse the harmful effects that stress has on your body, but it is important to reduce your stress levels. Supplements can also help your body defend itself from the harmful effects of stress.

Our Stress Protect supplement combines a dozen ingredients that have been shown to reduce anxiety, improve relaxation, and help your body control its response to stress. In addition to helping your body respond better to stress, there are ways that you can manage stress. Mindfulness and cognitive behavioural therapy can help you regain control by recognizing stress triggers and adopting strategies to help you deal with stressful situations. Exercise can help boost your mood, and talking to friends and family can provide emotional support. Getting enough sleep is also important in keeping stress levels low.
