Antibiotics- Moldy Bread & Humble Beginnings

antibioticblog

We can’t deny that antibiotics have become a sort of controversy as of late, but to deny them the respect they so deserve, would be doing ourselves a great disservice.

The history of antibiotic discovery and use is actually a very interesting story; some say it dates all the way back to the early Egyptians who use to bandage wounds with a type of moldy bread poultice. Isn’t that nice? Needless to say, we’ve come a long way since then.  Penicillin was our first successful antibiotic pioneer, before Alexander Fleming discovered the bacteria fighting power of penicillin, a simple cut or scrape could introduce serious infections and even fatality—not to mention the fact that we had no way of fighting pneumonia, strep throat, rheumatic fever or gonorrhea.

The threat we face today is the overuse of antibiotics. We’ve stopped using them solely for life threatening infections and have started relying on them for every discomfort in the book.  We’ve begun to create a community of antibiotic resistant bodies and diseases. There are many consequences that come with the abuse of this powerful medicine, aside from the threat of them becoming completely ineffective--they also leave our immune systems worse for the wear as they destroy all bacteria in their path, including the healthy bacteria that keep our gut, the epicenter of our immune system, healthy and functional.

Our advice? Do everything in your power to build your immune system naturally-rest, eat right, and at the end of the day when you feel yourself coming down with something, evaluate the situation. Consult your doctor on whether what you’re experiencing truly is concerning enough to introduce antibiotics. Antibiotics are wonderful when used correctly and re:iimmune® will help your body begin to recover by re-introducing good bacteria to your gut, relieving antibiotic related nausea with ginger root extract and will also begin to repair your intestinal wall with it’s multifunctional L-Glutamine that also aids in hydration absorption.

Travel Bug-Get Better, Better

Travelblog

 

Vacation. Whether it be a tropical spring break trip, a honeymoon to the Virgin Islands or a guy’s ice fishing trip in the frigid Pacific Ocean—we all have fond thoughts and eager expectations of what we call “vacation”. The last thing you want to think about after spending hundreds of dollars on flights and accommodations, not to mention, numerous hours daydreaming about the sound of waves lapping outside your cabana, is a round of the stomach flu or an unexpected sinus infection interrupting your moment of bliss. The unfortunate news is, travel related sickness is far too common for comfort. From crowded airports, unfamiliar foods, abnormal sleep schedules, and stress caused by unexpected delays--your immune system takes a hit!

 

Needless to say, if you're planning a trip, it's time to step up your health game.

 

Hydration: Often times it's difficult to stay well hydrated when you're traveling. Rushed commutes, hot beaches, and extra activities can leave you depleted. Not only is dehydration often accompanied by a long list of uncomfortable side effects, but it also inhibits your cells from healing properly and ultimately damages your immune system.

 

Digestion: Rich foods, extra desserts, and foreign bacteria all play a part in most of our travels. Since 70% of your immune system is located in your gut, it's vital to give your digestive system some extra attention. Ginger is a powerful digestive aid, it has been known to help soothe your gas pains, digest and metabolize fats and even relieve common stomach pains.

 

Immune Booster: When you're in the business of protecting your sacred getaway, you want to come at it with all of your guns blazing. Beefing up your immunity with some extra supplements, such as zinc, adds just the right amount of power behind your punch. Zinc is a supplement that is helpful with reducing inflammation--that often leads to infection--and is thought to be the most important micronutrient, as well as a key co-factor of the immune system.

 

Ultimately, the goal is to catch nothing more than a healthy glow and an extra pep in your step on your upcoming venture. So, next time you start packing your bags, don't forget to add re:iimmune® to the top of your travel list. With its clinical strength hydration, blend of pre and probiotics, a dose of zinc, and 275mg of ginger extract, you're on your way to healthy and happy travels!

More Than Water

 

Hydration

 

Short of breath. Blurred vision. Rapid heartbeat. Delirium.

Sounds serious, doesn’t it? When first read, these symptoms initially may register thoughts of —strokes, heart attacks, allergic reactions, or some other commonly thought of, serious health issues. However, these symptoms are what you could experience due to mild, moderate or severe dehydration levels, at any given time.

Dehydration is currently considered a pandemic. While there are people all over the world who have-little-to-no access to clean water sources, most people living in developed countries have an abundance of safe drinking water at their fingertips, yet, many of us turn to coffee, tea, soda or other dehydrating beverages to quench our thirst– leaving us dehydrated and at serious risk.

Whether it be your doctor, a nutritionist, or an article you've read--every one of us has been told we should be drinking more water at some point in our lives—either directly or inadvertently. Although, in some cases, water alone just won’t cut it. When it comes to serious dehydration, our bodies need a little help absorbing the water and electrolytes it takes to get our hydration under control.

The L-Glutamine in re:iimmune® helps your body do just that by pulling the necessary water across our intestinal wall. The electrolyte balancing nutrients in re:iimmune® then add the finishing touches by restoring healthy electrolyte levels, leaving us with all the components of a healthy and hydrated body.

What’s New About the Flu…

The truth is, the flu is old news. Every year we are blasted with warnings of the approaching flu season, ads on TV of sniffly moms and dads, construction workers miserably trudging around in the cold, children with thermometers poking out of their mouths and disheveled business men trying to make it through their work day- directing us to the latest and greatest symptom reliever. The ugly truth is that the flu isn’t just another seasonal inconvenience, but a serious problem—in fact, thousands of people die each year from flu related symptoms which pose the greatest threats to children and elderly adults.

Dog with a bag of cold water on his head

When the flu hits you, or your family, what is your plan of action? Most likely you run to the medicine cabinet for a variety of decongestants, cough remedies, hot teas and vitamin C. While immediate relief from your symptoms aids in allowing you to rest more comfortably (which is vital to recovery) we also have to focus in on the foundation of our health: the immune system. There are many commonly referenced immune boosters that we’ve all become familiar with, but did you know that 75% of your immune system resides in the digestive system? Without giving your digestive system the proper fuel it needs to restore itself, your body won’t have the strength it requires to ward off infection properly.

Our bodies are made up of nearly 90% bacteria, both good and bad. When your health is under attack it's best to fight back by strengthening your good bacteria with pre and probiotics, essential nutrients and Clinical Strength Hydration™. Without proper hydration levels, your cells won't have the strength they need to do their jobs efficiently and ward off illness. The same goes for your digestive system, without the power to ward off the bad bacteria residing in your gut, your immune system is left in a vulnerable position.

Our suggestion? Hold on to your favorite relief product, settle in with some "feel good" movies, steep a pot of hot tea, and mix yourself up a glass of re:iimmune®! With it's multi-stain blend of pre and probiotics, Clinical Strength Hydration™, a powerful punch of L-glutamine that works to rebuild your intestinal tissue, and ginger root that soothes and repairs your digestive flow, your immune system will thank you. re:iimmune® was specifically formulated to help you get better, better™!
