Conscious Immunity - How to prepare your body's front-line defense?
A strong immune system has become so essential in these times, sure you can wear masks when in public and apply other measures of social distancing (click here to see the complete CDC recommendations), but being in public still exposes us to the possibility of getting sick. So how do we ensure that even if we do get sick, our body has all the fighting power to address an invader? We believe that everything begins in the gut, that is, you are what you eat.
|While it can be challenging to incorporate healthy foods every day and for every meal (let alone something your whole family will happily eat), but it doesn’t have to be that way. Our vision behind creating ODNOVA was to incorporate the important and essential vitamins and minerals all in one jar infused in honey so that it’d be easy to make a delicious dessert (bonus: recipe below to get started!) that would help the body thrive.|
The goal of each of our formulas is to bring the body into an equilibrium state with Double-Directional Adaptogenic Herbs addressing the body’s most vital needs. However, you’ll also find that because of our ingredients’ inflammation-fighting power, your immune system is super-charged to fight unwelcome visitors.
Buzz, buzz! Our bees are working hard to bring you delicious golden sweet nectar. But not all honey is created equal, that is why we only use medicinal-grade, high quality, raw, unfiltered, and unadulterated grade of honey. This super-honey is known for its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant capacities, which may be useful for the prevention of chronic inflammatory processes. It is also high in flavonoids and other polyphenols which function as anti-oxidants.
- Never heard of Propolis? Well, honey isn’t the only thing that bees make, Propolis is another. It’s a compound they create with tree sap to protect their hives and there are multiple studies that conclude its helpfulness in fighting cancer, cold sores and wounds. When digested it also has many healing properties including anti-bacterial, anti-microbial, anti-fungal, anti-viral and anti-inflammatory.
- ROYAL JELLY
- Did you know every honey bee hive has a queen? Well, the queen bee only deserves the best, that is why she only eats royal jelly. Royal Jelly protects the queen bee with the strong anti-viral properties of the compound Royalisin which has a potent antibacterial effect on the organism. It is also known to reduce inflammation and oxidative stress as it effectively enhances your body’s natural immune response to foreign bacteria and viruses. That is why it is no wonder that the queen bee is not only larger in size than a worker bee, but its lifespan is 3 years as opposed to 30 days for a worker bee.
- BEE POLLEN
- Did you know that the Federal Ministry of Health in Germany recognized bee pollen as a medicine? (2) Due to its impressive nutritional profile with more than 250 active substances and a high amount of protein, bee pollen effectively reduces inflammation. In addition, its high oxidant content strengthens the immune system while also protecting it from free radicals.
These tree-huggers have a calming effect on the body that can settle the nervous system and improve fluid balance. There is also scientific evidence that Reishi Mushrooms can contribute to a strong immune system. (1)
Turmeric has many applications, but its most active compound is Curcumin and it just so happens that Curcumin is a strong antioxidant and has powerful anti-inflammatory effects on the body. So don’t be afraid to add some turmeric in your day-to-day cooking as well.
