ACE-2 Receptors, Quercetin & Coronavirus

ACE-2 Receptors, Quercetin & Coronavirus

Immune Booster and Broad-Spectrum Antiviral

Research has demonstrated that quercetin (a flavonoid antioxidant) is a powerful immune booster and broad-spectrum antiviral. As such, it may be useful both for the prevention and treatment of COVID-19 infection.

Once in a cell, the coronavirus empties the RNA contents and hijacks the cell to start producing more viruses. Quercetin can help in stopping the virus from getting into the cells through ACE-2 receptor sites by hindering the virus.

Green Juices Cleanse and Nourish the Liver & Cleanse the Blood

Chlorophyll is the plant pigment that gives vegetables and fruit their green color. Chlorophyll is a blood purifier. Green foods are rich in isothiocyanates, which generate enzymes in the liver that assist the body in removing carcinogenic compounds. Cruciferous veggies such as broccoli, cabbage, and brussels sprouts contain the phytonutrient insoles and isothiocyanates that have anticancer properties. And sulforaphane, which is a phytochemical in cruciferous vegetables that have been shown to detoxify cancer-causing chemicals before they can damage your body. Green foods nourish your liver.

Wheatgrass is your quintessential green. It’s considered the healthiest green on earth. It helps you detox at the cellular level. And it’s excellent to help detox the liver. A 2014 study in the Journal of Membrane Biology showed that wheatgrass consumption could even protect the liver against the detrimental effects of alcohol. (If you want to get a really good liver cleanse, add the 30-Day Detox and the Internal Cleanse Kit.)

Wheatgrass also helps you gain energy and improves your immune system. One 2004 study found that it is a powerful red blood cell booster. If you can’t get fresh wheatgrass juice, I recommend Sweet Wheat—powder or capsules. It’s the next best thing to the fresh juice. You can add the powder to fresh juice.

Top Prebiotic Foods & Juices

Top Prebiotic Foods & Juices

Probiotics, Prebiotics & Gut Health

Prebiotics are non-digestible carbohydrates (fiber) that induce the growth of beneficial microorganisms (probiotics) in the gut. In the gastrointestinal tract, prebiotics can feed probiotics. Prebiotics are typically Inulin fibers that are not digested in your small intestine; therefore, they make it into your colon where they serve as food for the probiotics.

Probiotics benefit your hormones as well as your intestinal tract. Various studies have discovered that prebiotics can aid in weight loss and even help to reduce stress. If you lack prebiotic fiber, then probiotics are not as likely to help your digestive system because the prerequisite material is absent. Probiotics help to control the harmful bacteria population of the gut. Research has shown that higher intakes of prebiotic foods can increase numerous probiotic microorganisms, including Lactobacillus rhamnosus GG, L. reuteri, bifidobacteria, and certain strains of L. casei or the L. acidophilus-group.

As our gut bacteria metabolize the non-digestible fibers we call prebiotics, short-chain fatty acids are produced such as butyric acid. This fatty acid improves the health of the intestinal lining. These short-chain fatty acids also help regulate electrolytes in your body.

Stress, the Liver, & Sleeplessness

Stress, the Liver, & Sleeplessness

Liver Toxicity

The liver is the main organ that controls sleep. During the night, when the body is the least active, the liver is the most active. This can produce sleeplessness. Here’s why. When the liver is unencumbered, it will do its work effortlessly but, if it is encumbered, it can become over-active in doing its work. This overactivity awakens you after you have fallen asleep, which is usually between 12 am to 3 am. It’s like trying to sleep in the midst of commotion. And the commotion is inside your body. You feel exhausted and you also feel wired. Having a clean liver usually prevents this type of sleeplessness from happening.
