No sugar-coating the facts; there's 𝗻𝗼𝘁𝗵𝗶𝗻𝗴 sweet about immune suppression!
Giving your immune system a little love and support is vital for long-term health, but it's especially crucial during the winter when colds can strike with greater frequency.
The good news? There's so much you can do about it!
While many factors affect the strength of your immune system, avoiding refined sugars is one that's in your control.
To optimize your immune system, it's essential to start by avoiding ANY immune suppressors like refined sugars.
Candy , soda, juice, alcohol , and desserts seem like an obvious place to find refined sugars; however, they're also hidden inside of most processed foods!
Sugar Free Soda
Granola Bars / Protein Bars
Spaghetti Sauce and other similar canned items (mini ravioli, beefaroni etc.)
BBQ and other sauces
The World Health Organization (which is Historically behind the times) recommends that you consume no more than 25 grams (about 6 teaspoons) of refined sugar per day. I encourage you to go as low as you possibly can. Let's reserve refined sugar for RARE occasions as there are virtually zero health benefits and far too many negatives.
