How the coronavirus compares with the flu

A quick glance at the topics dominating the headlines and one thing is clear: People need to protect their health.

Regardless of whether you argue that the concern lies more with flu or the coronavirus. Regardless of where you live. Regardless of your age. Regardless of all those things, there is one item everyone can agree on, which is that protecting their health and the health of their family is paramount.

Although “wash your hands” is blasted from every radio and television and is a running script on the marquee in most of our minds, there is more you can do to protect yourself and your family. Touching a water faucet nozzle that has been touched by many others, mindlessly washing your hands and then opening the door to the restroom with a paper towel or your foot, if you even can get the heavy door opened with nothing but your toes, is the minimum amount you can do to raise your shield and fight against the barbaric attackers on the 2020 immune system battlefield.

I discussed in a different piece that highlights James Bond’s intelligent choice of a drink with olives that are added after his martini is “shaken, not stirred,” olive leaf extract offers an astronomical benefit to the immune system. In supplements such as Truehope’s Olive Leaf Extract (OLE), the liquid extract has almost double the amount of antioxidant capacity as green tea extract and four times the amount of antioxidant capacity as vitamin C.

In a time when companies whose products, whether that be food, drink, or supplements, are being pushed to the forefront and sold like hotcakes because their vitamin C and antioxidant qualities is said to aid immune system support, it’s important for consumers to know an important truth which is that olive leaf extract knocks other immune system warriors out of the park.

As more and more vitamin C and antioxidant-toting products use this heartbreaking time of fear, as devastating news of the flu and coronavirus continue to surface, to promote their products, I find myself wishing that others knew that bringing vitamin C, although helpful, to the immune system battlefield when olive leaf extract is available is like bringing a knife to a gun show, as it’s commonly said. Olive leaf extract has more ammo and more intensity.

This isn’t to downplay the immense power of vitamin C. Instead, this is to share with readers the reality which is that there is something much more powerful in regards to aiding the immune system that doesn’t receive its due time in the spotlight.

Instead of helplessly reading the headlines and praying that the number of oranges and doses of vitamin C you throw at your family, along with the lifetime supply of antibacterial wipes lining your shelves, will ward off the flu and coronavirus invaders, consider bringing olive leaf extract to the immune system battlefield. Odds are you won’t be disappointed.
