Key Factors to
Support Immune Health

(2 min read)

Stress & Anxiety
70% of Americans are reported to be deficient in 2 key nutrients for quality sleep: Vitamin D and Magnesium.

Lack of REM & deep sleep leads to elevated levels of stress and anxiety. Nutraflow helps to manage stress by providing the nutrients your body needs to go through the various sleep cycles.

By helping our bodies get the nutrients it needs for high quality sleep, we increase our recovery and decrease stress and anxiety.

Gut Health & Melatonin
A healthy microbiome is essential for melatonin production. Your gut produces 400x the melatonin compared to the amount produced in your brain. Research suggests that an excess of unhealthy gut bacteria decreases melatonin production and negatively impacts your sleep leading to elevated levels of stress and anxiety.

How We Improve Sleep Quality -
Our ingredients: vitamin d, magnesium, epicor

Research shows that vitamin D deficiency significantly reduces REM sleep and 80% of COVID-19 patients with severe complications are vitamin D deficient (21, 22, 31).

Magnesium citrate; research tells us that this type of magnesium supports gut health as well as promoting mental and muscle relaxation helping to improve your Deep Sleep (28, 29).

EpiCor is a postbiotic wholefood fermented ingredient that feeds your healthy gut bacteria. It is supported by 8 human clinical trials with proven efficacy showing improved gut and immune health (1, 2).

"Pre-Existing Conditions"
Inflammation is essential for the body to heal itself. However, chronic inflammation is associated with all metabolic diseases aka "pre-existing conditions."

Insulin Resistance & The Western Diet
Insulin resistance, one form of inflammation, is the body's inability to remove glucose from the blood. It can lead to high blood pressure, cardiovascular disease, Type 2 Diabetes and Dementia (often referred to as Type 3 Diabetes).

It is estimated more than 100 Million Americans are currently living with Pre-Diabetes.

Another form of inflammation comes from the Western Diet in the form of Omega 6 fatty acids. Learn more in our ingredients section.

How We Fight Inflammation -
Our ingredients: turmeric, fish oil, quercetin, r-lipoic acid, magnesium

Curcumin is a bioactive substance in Turmeric that fights inflammation at the molecular level (15, 16).

Fish oil contains anti-inflammatory omega-3 fatty acids and it works to counteract inflammatory omega-6 fatty acids (17, 18).

Quercetin is a powerful antioxidant. Research indicates it exerts a wide range of health-promoting properties, including anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and antiviral activities (3, 4).

R-Lipoic Acid helps to increase insulin sensitivity, and decrease insulin resistance, helping us to age better (5, 6).

Magnesium supplements have proven efficacy to reduce CRP and other markers of inflammation (28, 29).

70% of Your Immune Cells are in Your Gut

A healthy microbiome is the cornerstone of disease prevention and longevity. The gut bacteria that make up your microbiome play many roles including metabolizing nutrients from food and serving as a protective barrier against infections.

Probiotics vs. Prebiotics vs. Postbiotics

What are they and which is best to be taken in supplement form?

Probiotic supplements are new bacteria being introduced into your gut. Prebiotics are high quality food for your gut bacteria.

Postbiotics are the metabolites, amino acids, proteins, fibers etc...that your healthy gut bacteria produce in order to do their job of metabolizing nutrients and protecting you from infection.

Of the three, postbiotics are the most effective in a supplement form. They are far more shelf stable than probiotics and require much smaller quantities when compared to prebiotics.

How We Strengthen Gut Health -
Our ingredients: epicor, a natural whole food ferment

For our formula we chose EpiCor, a whole food fermented postbiotic designed to help to feed your healthy gut bacteria (1).

EpiCor is made through a natural fermentation process. It is comprised of proteins, fibers, polyphenols, vitamins, amino acids, beta glucans and metabolites. It is supported by 8 human clinical trials with proven efficacy showing improved immune health & strengthened immune systems (2).
