Support your Immune System over the Holidays with Jigsaw's Curcumin:

Transcript by Rev.com

- Today we're gonna talk about how the holiday seasons affect the immune system. You know, Thanksgiving's only one week away, then we've got Christmas, then we have New Years Day. And during that period of time, the average American consumes an overabundance of refined carbohydrates. Did you know, the equivalent of one candy bar, about five teaspoons of sugar, can cut the activity of your white blood cells down by 25%? One candy bar, one can of pop, 60%. 

A day's allotment of daily sugar that people eat in America today, which is 25 teaspoons of sugar, cuts the activity of your white blood cells down by 92%. 

Now you wonder why we get sick this time of the year. Ever wonder why people get the flu, or flu-like symptoms, they get colds. Maybe it's because it's your holiday food and what you're eating. 

No one's telling ya not to have those things, but control it. You'll find that during a holiday season, you can enjoy it even more and not get sick. 

Let me list the top three foods that you should avoid. One, soda pop, two, candies, three, cakes and pies. 

If you do that, you're gonna cut a lot of the refined carbohydrates out of your diet during the holiday season. Have a special occasion where you enjoy a little bit of that, but don't do it everyday. 

Here's another tip, during a holiday season, throw some jigsaw curcumin into your diet. Curcumin, recently has been shown to lower blood sugar. When you lower blood sugar, those white blood cells work better. 

Happy Thanksgiving, we'll see ya next week.
