Boosting Immunity to Fight against Flu and Cold
One of the simplest ways to boost immunity and at the same time fight whatever organism has managed to get a hold of you is with Garlic.
Garlic is indeed, as many scientists have concluded, a broad-spectrum anti-microbial that fights many different kids of bacteria and viruses and in today's world, it is exactly what we all need (De & De, 2020; Pandey et al., 2021)
Research over the years have shown garlic to support the body against the flu and other nasty pathogens. It is also found to be a powerful food that lowers inflammation, fights yeast infections, UTI infections, and more.
And now Scientists know that garlic strengthen the immune system against SARS-CoV-2 (Chakraborty, 2020).
A powerful polyphenol supplement is now understood to be a must have! And potent berries that are used therapeutically offer some of the best polyphenols.
So: what gives Phyto Power its strength and health building effect?
Several species of Alaskan berries (blueberries and rose hip) and Dandelion gathered in remote, wild areas of Alaska.
A recent 2021 research by Lembo & Frye shows that wild berries from Alaska are effective in actually making people feel better, physically and emotionally.
Using the One Health principle for their research, Lembo and Frye compared wild Alaskan berries to berries from the rest of United States (as they call it, Lower-48 states).
The results showed a dramatic positive effects on health and well-being, people from Alaska had higher rates of feeling better - body and mind- than the rest of the US (lower-48 states and the control group in this research).
The Photo Power has Four species of blueberries from the wilds of Alaska! It has a 'handful' of blueberries. We suggest 2 capsules a day.
