With the rise in COVID-19 cases, it’s only natural for our minds to think of various means of protection. Boosting our immune system is a common suggestion, but how would we exactly go about it?
The easiest answer would be to keep your health up. Eat right, get some fruits and veggies, calm tf down on your milk tea habit, that kind of stuff. The hardest part is actually making it happen. For example, this is what the World Health Organization thinks our daily nutrition intake should look like:
● Fat of no more than 30% of total energy intake
● Salt of no more than 5g
● Sugars of less than 10% of total energy intake
● At least 400g (or five portions) of fruits and vegetables
If you haven’t tuned out already, you’ve probably realized that prepping well-balanced meals is a challenge. Between the endless Zoom calls and your mom interrupting your meetings, ain’t nobody got time to measure all of that. And if your diet is #ProudlyFilipino, you’re only probably eating rice and meat every day anyway (just admit it).
This is where supplements come in; they fill in the nutrient gaps. In particular, Amway’s Nutrilite™ Next Generation Double X™ has a comprehensive blend of 12 vitamins, 10 minerals, and 21 phytonutrients. Phytonutrients are plant nutrients well-associated with a variety of health benefits, usually found in fruits, vegetables, and other sources.
This quality formula has now been upgraded with a PhytoProtect Blend. To create the next-gen blend, Nutrilite scientists searched the world for the best ingredients, running more than 20,000 tests on 1,000 botanicals to find synergy among three key extracts: Turmeric, Rosemary, and Sophora Japonica.
Individually, these three are beneficial, but together, they render higher concentration and potency of phytonutrients.
‘It’s not just about creating products and selling them’, said Leni Olmedo, Country Manager of Amway Philippines.
‘It’s about finding the best solutions and going the extra mile to ensure that they live up to their promise, and that’s what we do in Amway’.
So if you’re like the rest of us, sitting on our butts waiting for that sweet, sweet vaccine, consider popping a supplement for your daily dose of nutrients in the meantime. Besides, COVID or not, it’s always a plus to be at your tip-top self.
