How many lumps of sugar are in your usual fizzy drink?
Organic, whole leaf green tea joins forces with vitamin C-rich acerola cherry, and a traditional immune support blend of ginger, turmeric, and orange peel- so, you’re getting your daily wellness from real food ingredients, not synthetic vitamins. Other effervescent vitamin C drinks often list fructose as the first or second ingredient- which is the absolute last thing you need when you feel a cold coming on.
Excessive sugar curbs the immune system’s ability to fend off bacteria and viruses that invade the body. Normally, white blood cells engulf, then absorb incoming foreign organisms, basically cleaning out anything that doesn't belong in the body. Sugar vastly slows this process, leaving the immune system wide open for attack from incoming germs, disabling the immune system for several hours. Sugar can also interfere with the ability for the body to transport vitamin C through the immune system, which is vital for healthy immune function. Basically, consuming excess sugar essentially means you are leaving your body unprotected from any potential threats to the immune system.
If you find your nose getting progressively harder to use, throat scratchy, or maybe just the onset of flu season panic; take a timeout, drink some tea, and try eating real, wholesome foods.
