Today the Typhoid Fever scare is all over the news for Purdue University students in West Lafayette, Indiana. Apparently a food service worker at the Marriott food service on campus contracted a confirmed case of Typhoid fever.
As a parent, what can you do to protect your children as they head of to college? You know they are likely going to be eating the college food which is not likely to have the amount of antioxidants needed to keep the immune system strong. Antioxidants are found in fruits and vegetables and lower inflammation in the body. Inflammation is responsible for over 200 diseases as well as keeping your immune system strong. While we cannot protect our children from outbreaks of Typhoid fever, we can make sure that they are getting
the antioxidants they need to fight disease when it comes to their campus or dorm room. According to CNCA Health, “This is where antioxidants come into play. These beneficial compounds are able to neutralize free radicals by supplying them with an extra electron, thereby breaking the cycle of free radical damage. Antioxidants are unique because even after donating an electron they remain stable and do not become free radicals themselves. For this reason, eating an antioxidant-rich diet is one of the best ways to curb free radical damage in your body while also optimizing your immune system.”
Symptoms of typhoid fever include high fever, weakness, stomach pain and lack of appetite.
You know they are busy, so an easy way to get the antioxidants they need is to buy them a monthly supply of the healthy chocolate. The Healthy Chocolate Company Beyond chocolate products are available in nuggets, power squares, omega squares and Xobiotic which include probiotics. They also make an amazing Xe healthy energy drink that Bill O’Reilly of the O’Reilly Factor even touted on his Factor Tip of the Day. Whatever you choose, energy drinks or healthy chocolate, these have antioxidants off the charts since they are made with cold pressed chocolate. Chocolate is normally made by heating and dutching the cocoa at high temperatures for 2-3 days. This loses many of the antioxidant benefits. That is why The Healthy Chocolate Company has a patented process to cold press the chocolate which does not require heating at high temperatures. This makes all the difference, and the antioxidant values are verified on the side of every box. The healthy chocolate is out of this world. Get some for your students and protect them today.
