Brooklyn, NY (PressExposure) November 05, 2008 -- As cold and flu season approaches, and despite temperature differences across the nation, proper nutrition plays a significant role in fighting off the cold bug, says Brooklyn Symmetry business partner and Holistic Health Practitioner, Trevor Alfred , who, along with other Symmetry experts, wants to assist people in warding off the woes of coughs, sneezes and fevers this time of year. Trevor is specifically offering advice on the importance of antioxidants and how they can help to keep one's immune system strong.
"It's important to educate my neighbors and Brooklyn-area residents on how to take better care of their bodies, especially this time of the year when sickness passes around quickly," Trevor said. "Knowing the importance of antioxidants is a step in the right direction. People will be amazed by what little things they can do to improve their health and make their bodies strong to avoid sickness."
Antioxidants, according to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary, are substances that inhibit oxidation or reactions promoted by oxygen, peroxides or free radicals. But in layman's terms, antioxidants include substances like enzymes, vitamin c, vitamin e and beta carotene. They help to keep energy and nutrients in your body, and help your immune system to stay strong enough to attack strange bacteria, Trevor added.
"Usually we can obtain a significant amount of antioxidants in foods like berries and beans, among other fruits and vegetables. But with everyone's busy schedules and lifestyles, who has time to make sure they are receiving the right amounts of antioxidants?" Trevor said. "Therefore, the best way to ensure you are getting the right amount of antioxidants is to incorporate nutritional supplements into your lives â a guarantor of sufficient nutrients to keep the mind and body balanced."
Symmetry is a direct selling business known for its products that help improve health and wellness. When it was originated over a decade ago, founder Rudy Revak's vision was to provide people with a product line to help them reach their full potential. For years, he studied and used nutritional supplements, believing that good nutrition could make a positive impact on an individual's energy, health, and life.
According to Trevor, Symmetry is not just about helping people during this season of colds and the flu. It goes beyond that; changing people's lives for the better.
