Protect Yourself from the New Varients

It has come to my attention that N-Acetyl Cysteine (NAC) has shown the ability to block the attachment of damaging proteins (like the ones with the spikes) to receptor sites. If they can’t attach, the damage they can do is greatly reduced.

WHAT IS NAC?

“NAC is the supplement form of cysteine, a semi-essential amino acid, found in high-protein foods such as eggs, chicken, and turkey.” It is often referred to as one of the building blocks of protein. It is an essential amino acid that helps “with various processes such as building muscle or regulating immune function. It is an antioxidant that delivers a “variety of benefits to the body, including strengthening immune defenses and supporting fertility, liver detoxification, and even muscle recovery. Among NAC’s many benefits is one that’s particularly timely: It may help relieve chronic respiratory conditions — which preliminary research suggests could play a pivotal role in supporting, preventing and treating those with COVID-19.”1

Understand the Foggy Brain and Gut-Brain Connection

Do you have a hard time focusing, or forget simple details, or mix up your words, or feel scattered or confused, don’t blame it on your brain— blame it on your gut.

Brain fog is considered as a loss of mental clarity, difficulty concentrating, and forgetfulness.

1. Watercress

This cruciferous vegetable is considered the healthiest food on earth. William Patterson University conducted a study that ranked watercress as #1 with a perfect score for the healthiest food. They looked at levels of key nutrients and found watercress to be the best overall in providing a wide variety of nutrients.

But it is a variety of nutrients that are important for overall health, watercress got the top score. The study was published in the CDC’s journal Preventing Chronic Disease.
