Antibodies. Did you know that you have little Y-shaped proteins created in your immune system that stop toxic intruders from harming you?
These Y-shaped proteins combine with toxic substances, which your body recognizes as alien, like bacteria, viruses (like Coronavirus/COVID), and non-nutritious substances (like aspartame and heavy metals) in your blood.
Everyone makes antibodies. They keep you from getting sick. Body invaders, like a virus or bacteria, are called antigens, and when you are exposed to them, your immune system springs into action.
So, if you’re healthy and exposed to a virus (like Coronavirus/COVID), your body’s got you covered. Actually, potent antibodies have been found in people who recovered from COVID.
Remember that everyone is different, so you will have a different immune response than your neighbor. Your best friend or sister may already be fighting a disease, so their immune system may be compromised if they are exposed to an antigen, like Coronavirus/COVID.
What about you?
Antibodies To The Rescue
If you are healthy and practice nutrition-prevention in your daily life, your antibodies should easily latch onto antigens in order to remove them from your body.
Your antibodies can directly neutralize a virus or it can destroy virus-infected cells in your blood.
Pretty awesome, right?
This is how its works:
Antigens are proteins found on the surface of a pathogen, like Coronavirus/COVID, just saying.
The antibodies destroy the antigen (a virus like Coronavirus/COVID ), which is then enveloped and digested by macrophages (lymphocytes).
To help your body out, white blood cells also produce chemicals called antitoxins, which destroy the toxic by-products (waste) that the antigens produce after they have invaded your body.
Antibodies are produced by these specialized white blood cells called B lymphocytes (or B cells). When an antigen binds to the B-cell surface, it stimulates the B cell to divide and mature into a group of identical cells called a clone.
The antibodies attack antigens by binding to them.
This is very simplified presentation, but my point is to remind you that if you are exposed to a virus, like the Coronavirus/COVID, your body knows what to do, and your immune system will be stronger in the long-run.
How To Increase Your Antibodies
You can increase your antibodies by supporting your immune system, which prevents your body from getting sick.
Adopt these tips into your daily lifestyle for immune system support:
- eat healthy foods;
- incorporate a variety of whole foods into your diet;
- eat a form of lean protein at every meal;
- shoot for 5 cups of fruits and veggies every day;
- walk for at least 10-minutes several times throughout the day;
- get vitamin D from sunshine for 10-15 minutes each day;
- manage stress;
- cook with cold-pressed seed oils;
- limit colas (diet and regular) and alcoholic drinks;
- get plenty of rest;
- take a quality multivitamin and vitamin C (if #3 and #4 are hard to achieve).
Try not to panic about Coronavirus/COVID, especially if you do not have a pre-existing condition.
Be smart. Be preventative. Take your vitamins and eat raw, whole foods. Drink plenty of water. Get lots of rest. Get some sunshine outdoors. Stay positive.
Try not to worry – your body’s got you covered if you let it!
