More frequently, families across the US are starting to see a new daily “normal” take shape.

As the numbers of Coronavirus cases continue to climb each day, a serious effort is underway to avoid overwhelming the healthcare system. Traditional “immune nutrients” such as Vitamin C, Vitamin D and Zinc have been talked about at length, but a lesser known amino acid powerhouse also exists that has some very specific benefits for the lungs. Cysteine is an amino acid that is a precursor to glutathione, the body’s most powerful antioxidant which helps support healthy lungs, liver function, detoxification and muscle recovery.
Mitochondria have earned their position as the “powerhouses” of our cells. The energy mitochondria produce is involved in some of the most important biologic processes in our bodies.
Being responsible for most of your body’s functions, your mitochondria have an enormous impact on your health and longevity, specifically as protectors against cancer, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases, diabetes, and obesity.
Metabolic Syndrome is a condition that is most often brought on by a diet high in processed foods, high carbohydrates and inactivity, which together causes high blood sugar. High blood sugar can increase chances of infection and slow the healing process – a major concern in light of COVID-19.

We must improve on this statistic, now.
