Although COVID-19 may not be a threat to most of us any more, the chance that we get sick is higher because we are endurance athletes. We end up pushing ourselves to the max. That is why BioTropic Labs developed an all natural formula to keep you healthy while working out.
Our Immune System
All endurance athletes need to sleep good (for recovery), eat right, and be able to deal with stress, in order to have good performance. When any of these are out of wack, our bodies breaks down and can easily catch something.
I know for me, I am constantly battling a good sleep and less stress. I try to eat protein with every meal and I make sure my micronutrients are in check. However, because of the sleep and stress, it makes me vulnerable to colds and other viruses.
BioTropic Labs’ Inner Armor
I was introduced to BioTropic Labs and researched what they do and who they are. I’m seriously impressed with them because they have supplements that are all natural and I love that their founder is an endurance athlete.
Inner Armor is their immunity supplement. It has some interesting ingredients including:
YEAST BETA GLUCANS
Beta glucans are fibrous sugars found in the cell walls of bacteria, fungi, algae, and plants. They have a stimulating effect on the immune system because the body essentially sees them as foreign invaders and mounts an immune response against this harmless decoy. This kicks up your body’s white blood cell production to keep you healthy and defend against the real pathogenic invaders, not the harmless decoys in beta glucans.
These little berries pack a health-promoting punch. It binds to the virus preventing it from reproducing and infecting your cells. This gets you feeling better, and faster. Especially effective against influenza, elderberry extract blocks the virus from spreading in your body. It has been used effectively for centuries in traditional medicine to address a host of ailments, not the least of which is supporting a stronger immune system.
Inner Amor employs a probiotic called Bacillus Coagulans. Probiotics are found naturally in your intestines. These are beneficial microorganisms that are believed to promote health and protect against infections. Bacillus coagulans is one of these great gut beneficial probiotics. It encourages a healthy immune system, normalizes nutrient absorption in the body, and helps balance gut flora.
We all know vitamins are important, but few are as crucial to strong immune function as vitamin C. It acts as a potent antioxidant that, like elderberry, fights oxidative damage and supports optimal function of both the innate (broad and fast acting) and adaptive (specific and slow acting) branches of the immune system.
Zinc is a mineral that has been gaining even more notoriety for its role in supporting the immune system. It is present in every cell and the second most plentiful trace mineral in the body. Zinc offers strong antioxidant effects, protecting your cells and tissues from oxidative damage that leads to inflammation and disease. Zinc keeps your immune system and body strong.
Vitamin D acts as a signal in your body, turning certain processes off and on. Every cell in the body has a receptor site for vitamin D, including immune cells, to turn them on. This allows your immune system to respond to immune stimulants like beta glucans and elderberry extract to gain their full benefits.All Inner Armor ingredients are perfectly combined to provide a truly synergistic immune support supplement to keep your immune system at peak performance and you feeling your best all season long.
Taking it on a Test Drive
I started to take Inner Armor on a daily basis and I’ve been feeling so much better. I’ve been training hard for both the Cross-Bay Swim and Ironman North Carolina, so I need to stay well. So far, I’ve been finding these supplements beneficial.
