The Secret Powers of Ginger

But Wait…There’s More!

ginger.ninja

Just when you think we’ve covered all the bases, there’s more ingredients to our secret sauce and they really aren’t so secret after all! If you scroll through the ingredient list on the side of your box of re:iimmune®, your eyes will land on 275 mg of ginger extract listed right below L-Glutamine (which we covered in our last blog). Ginger is on the rise both in popularity and demand within the natural health community right now, but ginger has been highly respected and sought after as a powerful health aid for centuries among many different cultures. While it’s most commonly known for its ability to soothe nausea and aide in healthy digestion, ginger happens to be the sneaky ninja of health resources as it possesses many commonly overlooked benefits.

Although ginger has many more layers to it than simply acting as a nausea reduction, that was its main attraction to our formula. Often times when illness hits, nausea is a main event. Aside from the stomach flu itself, many more serious illnesses are treated with heavy medications that cause dehydration, gut imbalances, and almost always nausea. Chemotherapy, antibiotic use, pain medications and anesthesia, are all known to cause mild to severe cases of nausea and digestive complications, while the illnesses that require these medications are the epicenter of what initially led to the creation of re:iimmune®.  Not only is ginger effective in these extreme cases, but it’s also a completely natural and safe solution for even the most sensitive of situations, like pregnancy for instance.

The bio-active compound found in ginger that is responsible for much of its medicinal properties is called Gingerol, this compound acts as a powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory supplement. Anti-inflammatories are also a hot spot on the health scene at the moment. Treatments ranging from anti-inflammatory diets, to health supplements and topical creams- reducing inflammation is all the rage. It’s important to know that inflammation isn’t always a bad thing, in the case of a trauma to your skin and muscular tissue, inflammation is your body’s way of healing itself. However, inflammation of your intestinal tract is the result of irritation, therefore calming down the inflammation goes hand in hand with calming down the irritant while allowing your digestive system to heal properly.

But that’s not all! When you take a closer look at how other cultures use ginger root, the possibilities are endless. According to Chinese medicine, there is a lengthy list of benefits associated with ginger. Here are a few just to give you an idea:

  • Analgesic- Topical Pain Reduction
  • Anti-Bacterial
  • Antiemetic- Anti-Vomit
  • Anti-Parasitic- Fights Parasites
  • Anti-Pyretic- Fights Fever
  • Hepato-Protective- Ability to prevent damage to the liver
  • Hypotensive- Lowers Blood Pressure

The research on Ginger and all of its numerous benefits is still expanding and we’ve only just begun to learn all there is to know about this little game changing root we’ve all come to love, but one thing is for sure; we want it on our team!

You Don’t Have to be Sick to re:iimmune

Why Wednesday

 

"FortunatPaula_WhyWednesdayely, we haven’t had chemo, radiation, or an especially severe case of bad “gut health.”  However, it is possible that we represent a large percentage of those who use re:iimmune on a daily, weekly or bi-weekly basis for our general health and comfort.  I first became aware of the product about two years ago when my husband had a rather long and unexplained problem with his tummy.  He drank one dose a day for about a week and just that quickly he felt so much better.  We have experienced the usual upsets typical of 90 and 80 year olds, but since discovering re:iimmune the difference is that we know what to do about it now."  -Paula Ahlborn

Here at Make People Better headquarters, we often hear the question: "do I have to be sick to drink re:iimmune®?" Of course not! The truth is, I don't know a single person who wouldn't benefit from Clinical Strength Hydration® and Intestinal Immune support. Drinking re:iimmune® on a regular basis is a wonderful way to build up your immune system, and feel better, better™ . The Zinc and 275mg of ginger root in re:iimmune® give your body an extra immune boost, and also aid in reducing upset digestive patterns, and soothing nausea. Ginger alone packs a powerful punch in conjunction with generalized health, you can read more about that here.

We regularly hear from our faithful customers and friends that drinking re:iimmune® every single day has made a definite improvement on their quality of life, and for numerous reasons. Moment of truth: I personally live, eat, and breathe this stuff, but even I don't remember to drink it every single day, yet, as soon as I start to feel sluggish or physically off, I crave it immediately! Moral of the story is that your health journey is yours, and it will be unique for each individual. As a health conscious person, you're surely going to attempt to drink enough water in a day, eat foods that promote a healthy digestive pattern, and possibly even supplement with a probiotic formula on occasion. The beauty of re:iimmune® is that it's truly the whole package in one tiny packet. For the days when you haven't had time to sit down (much less drink an adequate amount of water), for the days that you cave and  wind up eating that one thing you know your body will not thank you for later, for the days that you just want to lay your head down on your desk and call it quits, re:iimmune® just might be the pick up you need! As for Paula and I, we sure think so. Until next Wednesday, Get better, better™!

Avoid The Travel Bug

Why Wednesday

 

 

"My husband BlBekah_Abiatti2ake and I were on our honeymoon in Mexico when re:iimmune saved us. We woke up early to head back to Missouri, and we both felt a little off but not sick. We didn't think much of it since we had just spent a week in Mexico, and were eating different foods than our bodies were use to. When we arrived at the Atlanta airport for our layover, we attempted to get something to eat. We couldn't stomach anything! Luckily I had two re:iimmune packets left! It was the only thing we could keep down and it completely helped soothe our stomachs. I was so worried our last plane home was going to be miserable (or that we wouldn't be able to get on the plane) but re:iimmune got us through it! Now, any time my stomach is upset or my body is just feeling down, I always drink re:iimmune!" -Bekah

It's that time of year again! Sand, sun, cruises, lake weekends, hiking trips and airline flights taking you to your favorite destinations. Most of us look Bekah_Abiattiforward to longer days, warmer weather, family vacations and romantic honeymoon getaways. If you're anything like me (or like our organized teacher friend, Bekah) you start making your packing list a week before it's time to hit the road. You pack and repack, second guess your apparel decisions a hundred times, and then finally settle into something comfy and set off for paradise. Through crowded airports, new environments, disrupted sleep patterns, and unfamiliar foods- your body doesn't always get the same relief you might feel on vacation. The last thing you want to happen when you're far from home is to deal with the effects of a run down immune system.

No one wants to get up and climb over 3 people, 42 times in one flight, just to use a tiny, uncomfortable airplane commode, or pull off the road at every rest stop in sight when you're hurrying to your awaited location. We normally wind up drinking less fluids as a result, causing our bodies hydration levels to plummet and in turn, your body takes step one towards an upset immune function. The next time you start your packing list, stick re:iimmune® at the very top. With it's special formulation of Clinical Strength Hydration® you will be able to maintain optimal hydration levels without running to the restroom every 20 minutes. With it's blend of pre and probiotics, re:iimmune® fights hard against all the upsets traveling  introduces to your digestive system by reintroducing the good bacteria your stomach needs to remain healthy. When you drink a packet of re:iimmune®, you also receive a generous dose of ginger, which is known for aiding in digestion and soothing nausea- as well as a helping of zinc to give you're immune system an extra "oomph". Don't let anything get in the way of your vacation this summer including the travel bug, pack re:iimmune and get better, better!
