Throughout the past few months, we have continuously stressed the importance of supporting the immune system through supplementation and proper diet. With colder weather already here, the cold and flu season beginning, and many reported cases of illness we continue to recommend that everyone take some type of immune supporting nutrients, especially Vitamin D.
We still love the SHAPE program. We have not talked about it as much recently, so we would like to refocus on it, especially now! It is the best detoxifying, inflammation reducing, immune system supporting, and weight loss program out there. Think about it – you can support your immune system (so critical during the cold and flu season) and lose weight at the same time!! We can honestly say that every single client who has followed the program has been successful.

Everyone Should be Taking Vitamin D or Other Immune Support Supplements
We are strong believers in using muscle testing to create an individualized nutritional supplement program for each client. However, in these days of the pandemic there are several indisputable facts.
First, it has been found that Vitamin D can protect cells from certain viruses, including the most recent varieties. There is an enzyme called ACE 2 (Angiotensin converting enzyme 2) that attaches to the outer surface of cells in the lungs, arteries, heart, kidney, and intestines. Apparently, ACE2 serves as the entry point into cells for some viruses. Vitamin D blocks or fills the receptor sites of the ACE2 so the virus cannot get into the cell.
Second, most people are Vitamin D deficient. Experts believe that we should have 80-100 ng/mL of Vitamin D in our blood.
As the winter approaches, we have fewer opportunities to gather the Sunshine Vitamin (D) the natural way. So, if you are not currently taking Vitamin D we strongly encourage you start. Especially now. With the weather turning colder and viral cases on the rise throughout the country we strongly encourage you to invest in your health and consider the other immune system supporting supplements we have previously presented.
