When we first started developing our Vi-Rid formula, our main goal was to provide our valued customers with an all-natural and effective product that would help fight the viruses and bacteria that cause colds and flu. We didn’t want to give you another product that would simply mask the unpleasant symptoms, but rather get to the viral and/or bacterial source of what caused the cold and flu to hit you in the first place, and eliminate it.
As it turns out, while Vi-Rid definitely can be an effective way to combat a cold or case of the flu; its ability to help boost the immune system means it can also help people with a variety of other health conditions.
In this blog, we will start by looking at two serious health issues: diabetes and sickle cell disease, their impact on the immune system, and how taking a supplement like Vi-Rid can help boost immunity in people with these conditions.
Diabetes and immunity
If you have been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, you may feel like you are always battling some type of bug. Unfortunately, your observation is correct – numerous studies have found that high blood sugar levels can cause your immune system to not work as well as it should, which in turn will cause germs to take hold.
Scientists have discovered that high blood sugar levels cause the body to release destructive molecules that mess with your body’s ability to ward off infection. In addition, diabetes can cause the immune system to destroy insulin-producing cells inside the pancreas.
In addition to keeping your blood sugar levels steady, it is important to make sure your immune system is not compromised – and this is where Vi-Rid can help. Vi-Rid’s combo of herbs includes Andrographis, which has been found to trigger the body’s immune response by activating the body’s killer T cells, which in turn can help keep your immune system working as effectively as possible.
Sickle cell disease
If you have been diagnosed with sickle cell disease, it is extremely important to do everything you can to make sure your immune system is healthy. People with sickle cell disease usually have a dramatically weakened immune system, which can leave them more susceptible to infections from different types of bacteria. From the flu and pneumonia to salmonella and other infections, people with sickle cell disease tend to fall ill very quickly and will stay sick for longer periods of time.
One of the ingredients in Vi-Rid called “Lonicera” has been found to help battle both bacterial and viral infections including influenza and pneumonia. By taking Vi-Rid on a regular basis, people with sickle cell disease may find that they are not getting ill as frequently, or staying sick as long.
In a future blog post, we will examine how Vi-Rid can help people with other health conditions that cause their immune system to be compromised – so please stay tuned!
