How The Hero can help boost your immune system
The world is in chaos, viruses and diseases are spreading like wildfire, fear is at an all-time high, and we need to be proactive where we can.
A good place to start? Support your immune system.
The Hero is a powerful mix of 12+ super herbs, cannabidiol (CBD) and ozonated extra-virgin olive oil. Each ingredient has been thoroughly researched and specifically chosen for the unique physical and mental health benefit it may offer.
Of the Hero ingredients, four have potent immune boosting benefits which may naturally aid your health.
L-theanine may support the body in fighting off illness. Several studies have suggested that taking L-theanine could boost a person’s immune system, making them less likely to get common colds or the flu. Its potential anti-inflammatory effects could also help fight illness.
Cytokines are the immune system’s chemical messengers. They are proteins that play a vital role in stimulating white blood cells, which are the immune system’s first line of defence against a range of illnesses. Some research on mice suggests that chaga mushroom may help regulate the production of cytokines, supporting the immune system by helping cells communicate with one another. This could help fight infections, from minor colds to life-threatening illnesses.
Lion’s mane mushrooms may enhance the immune system, partly by reducing inflammation and preventing oxidation. Research on mice suggests that lion’s mane mushrooms may boost the activity of the intestinal immune system. The results of another study on mice indicate that a protein in lion’s mane mushrooms encourages the growth of beneficial gut bacteria that strengthen immunity.
Compared with other fruits, vegetables and herbs, rose hips offer one of the highest levels of vitamin C. This vitamin, along with other compounds in rosehip, helps strengthen and protect your immune system. Many people take it to boost the immune system, prevent and treat colds, flu, and vitamin C deficiencies.
Last but not least, since The Hero contains CBD which may positively affect serotonin levels in the brain the outcome it can lead to is less anxiety, more calmness, and better sleep. I mean, who doesn’t need this right now?
According to recent research, CBD’s anti-inflammatory actions may help to address inflammation of the mucous membranes triggered by an infection, which in turn may lead to a reduction in pain and mucus production. This becomes particularly relevant when the sinuses become congested and inflamed. CBD is also an anti-viral, and this may be of use when a cough, cold or flu has a viral cause (#coronavirus). Lastly, the endocannabinoid system which CBD acts on, plays a role in healing the body via its regulation of various processes. It is thought that as a result of illness, or as a causative factor in illness, this system can be depleted. The use of CBD may, therefore, supplement the system, helping to restore balance, thereby encouraging better healing mediated via it.
By including The Hero in your daily wellness rituals we hope to bring you one step closer to living a happier, healthier and more balanced life.
