Newsflash! The coronavirus isn’t going anywhere anytime soon.
Not even with the anticipated vaccine that folks are anxiously waiting for.
Various forms of coronavirus have been among humans for a long time. And, as it spreads around the world it can mutate and change.
That means, even if a vaccine does become available, you can still get the Coronavirus.
Just like the common cold, that is a variation of one strain of coronavirus, Covid 19 is probably here to stay. And, as it spreads around the globe infecting the majority of humans, you may be susceptible to it.
Many People have shuttered themselves inside their homes, afraid to interact with other human beings for fear of catching Covid 19.
So, what are you going to do?
Live in perpetual fear, lock yourself away, isolate yourself from friends and family, and slip into a deep depression?
I hope the heck not!
Instead, I suggest preventively maximizing your immunity so you stand a better chance of fighting off the virus if you do catch it.
And, I suggest that you do that simply and deliciously.
For example – how would you like to maximize immunity while sipping on a delicious cup of hot cocoa? You can easily do that with my yummy hot cocoa recipe.
This rich and creamy hot cocoa contains both Reishi and Turkey Tail mushroom powders.
Don’t worry, it doesn’t taste like mushrooms.
The taste of Reishi is quite bitter, more like cacao, so you won’t even know it’s there.
Reishi is an immunomodulator. That means it stimulates innate immunity while also modulating the acquired immune system, resulting in fewer infections and fewer allergies and inflammation.
Reishi also a classic herb that helps you sleep more restfully at night. And, a good night’s sleep totally supports immune health.
Turkey tail (pictured above) is also very bitter. My husband said it tastes like, “100% dark chocolate.”
So, it’s perfect for this recipe.
“Turkey Tail is a potent mushroom prized for its beta-glucan polysaccharides. Polysaccharides are essential sugars that aid in activating immunity in the body. Clinical trials suggest that bacterial infections can be reduced using polysaccharides. The polysaccharides have strong communication with all T cells that are part of the white blood cells fighting off infection.”
So, as we head into flu, cold, and coronavirus season, do yourself a favor and sip on this Immune Boosting Hot Cocoa. And, then go out and play with your friends.
