My Immunity Boost Routine

中文版本在後

It’s lunar new year’s eve. Whilst everyone is rushing around trying to run last minute errands in time for the holidays, I do not feel there is a massive festive mood. Besides the recent political events masking over Hong Kong, there is also the recent coronavirus that seems to be spreading quickly and getting everyone worried. My cousin just told me that he does not want to join our new year lunch, as he is avoiding all restaurants (public places). At a mall at Causeway Bay today, about 80% of people are wearing masks.

Whilst it is important to be vigilant, we also should not panic. As long as we practise good personal hygiene and stay healthy, we can continue to live our regular lives. 

I want to share with you my routine for keeping my immune system strong. I don’t say this lightly, as I was once at a point when I basically had no ability to fight any disease, and so keeping my immune system strong has somewhat become a mission of mine ever since. I have been practicing this routine daily for about 5 years now, and I do find that I don’t really get sick much. It will take time, but I promise you it works, as long as you stick with it.

These are the daily supplements that I take for general health. Dosages can be varied based on person and symptoms, condition etc. Do consult your doctor/nutritionist before you start. 

Morning routine (after meal):

  • 1000mg MSM
  • 130mg Magnesium glycinate
  • 1000mg ester C / buffered C
  • 1 probiotic

Please note that the vitamin C should be taken about 2 hours apart from the MSM and not together, as the C turns the MSM rancid. However, it is a good “combo” for absorption purposes. 

Evening routine (after meal):

  • 1000mg MSM
  • 130mg Magnesium glycinate
  • 30-50mg zinc

If you feel that you are coming down with flu, you can increase the dosage of MSM, magnesium and zinc. You can double the MSM and magnesium, and increase zinc up to 150mg a day till you are better. 

Besides oral supplements, I also apply magnesium (chloride) and MSM onto my skin after shower. Direct absorption is a very effective way to take your supplements. 

Let me briefly elaborate on why (I plan to write a much more detailed account of these minerals as I love them so much). 

MSM, or methylsulfonylmethane, is a natural substance present in food and the human body. There are many uses of MSM, but it’s most well known for treating pain and inflammation conditions, at muscles, joints, allergies, chronic headaches etc. It also plays a role in providing the needed sulfur to produce antibodies to combat germs and allergens, and enzymes that counteract inflammation and promote reparation of damaged cells. 

Magnesium is a vital mineral in our body that has many roles, including catalyzing most chemical reactions in the body, produce and transport energy, synthesizes protein, transmit nerve signals and relaxes muscles. Between MSM and magnesium, these 2 minerals govern over 80% of our bodily functions. It’s interesting to note that nearly 90% of the population is magnesium deficient. There can be many reasons that can cause this, including food, the right diet, lifestyle etc. 

Zinc also belong to the same mineral family. Zinc helps the body absorbs magnesium.

If you plan to take other vitamins, the B and D groups also work well with this bunch. Other vitamins, if taken, should be taken at a different time.

Evidently, the supplements alone are not enough. It is paramount that you pair this with a balanced lifestyle: eat nutritious foods, exercise regularly, get good quality sleep, and stay happy and positive. 

We want our readers to be healthy and live a good life. If you have any further questions on the above, or would like to set up a consultation the above supplements, please contact us by WhatsApp 9280 2006 or via email (enquiry@glohs.hk).

Have a healthy and prosperous Year of the Rat!

我每天的抗疫步驟

最近,香港受新型冠狀病毒急速蔓延的困擾,人人自危。在這嚴峻的情況下,我們必需時刻保持警惕,但謹記不需恐慌,最重要的是保持個人衛生,確保身體健康,就可以繼續如常生活。

我想在此跟您們分享我的抗疫秘方。我曾經一度失去所有免疫系統功能,沒有任何能力去對抗細菌,所以,從那時開始,提升自己的免疫系統就成為我的使命。我已經跟隨這個步驟有五年多了,也發現生病的次數減少。儘管這個方法需時,但非常有效。

以下是我每天進食的補給品。份量和適應度會因應情況、症狀等因人而異 。使用前,最好先請教家庭醫生 / 營養師。

早上 (餐後)

1000毫克  甲磺醯甲烷 (MSM)

130 毫克  甘胺酸鎂 (magnesium glycinate)

1000 毫克  維他命 C (酯 C

1 粒 益生菌

注意: 維他命C 和 MSM 不可以同時進食,最好相隔2 個小時,否則MSM會吸收不了, 但這個組合是有互補作用。

晚上(餐後)

1000毫克  甲磺醯甲烷 (MSM)

130 毫克  甘胺酸鎂 (magnesium glycinate)

30-50 毫克  鋅

如果您覺得有一些生病症狀,可以增加 MSM、鎂和鋅的份量。您可以考慮把MSM和鎂雙倍,鋅提升到150 毫克,直到情況好轉。

除了口服外,我沐浴後也直接塗鎂軟膏 和 MSM軟膏。直接透過皮膚吸收也是個補吸的方法。

讓我在此簡單解釋一下 (我往後會詳細再錄,因覺得這些補給品太棒了。)

MSM, 甲磺醯甲烷,是身體和食物裡的天然物質。它有很多用途,最常見的是消炎和止痛,針對肌肉,關節,敏感,頭痛等。它也有為身體提供所需的硫磺,來製造抗體來對抗細菌和過敏原,和酵素來針對炎症和修補細胞 

是身體主要礦物質之一,具多種功效,包括身體大部分的化學作用,製造和運輸能源,合成蛋白質,發送神經系統信號和放鬆肌肉甲磺醯甲烷加鎂這個組合,主管身體超過80%功能。另外,超過9成的成年人是缺鎂的。原因可以有很多,包括食物,進食習慣,生活方式等。

也是跟它們同一個組合。鋅可幫助身體吸收鎂。

如果您有服用其他維他命的習慣,維他命 B和D 也是同一組的。如果是其他的維他命的話,最好在不同時間服用。

當然,只靠補給品是不夠的。您們必須有均衡的生活方式,吃有營養的食物,經常運動,有足夠睡眠,和保持心境開朗、正面。
