Eating Healthy is Not Enough To Deter The Flu

Ola Loa multi-vitamin mineral powder provides the body with flu fighting nutrients unattainable through food alone

San Francisco, CA - (October 29, 2009) Ola Loa LLC, a leading manufacturer of effervescent vitamin and mineral health drinks is paving the way for a healthier you this cold and flu season with its unique physician formulated supplement packets. Ola Loa contains large amounts of flu fighting nutrients that are difficult to attain through a healthy diet alone. Taking Ola Loa multi-vitamin 1 to 3 times daily in a convenient powdered form is an effective way to boost your immune system during the cold and flu season.

Ola Loa ENERGY, the first multivitamin-mineral-amino acid supplement uses advanced nutrition research to provide the body with those hard to get nutrients like vitamins A through K, 1000 mg of Vitamin C, 90 mineral complexes, TMG, NAC and CoQ10, plus 6 amino acids. The concentrated combination of these vitamins and minerals assists in natural energy production and anti-oxidant protection. This high level of nutritional content in a grab and go packet helps to save time as it avoids using multiple sources of nutrients to achieve the same results.

“Most people believe they are getting all the nutrients they need to stay cold and flu free, but unfortunately that is often not the case. “When your body is fighting an infection, you need more nutrients to stay healthy, and it is nearly impossible to eat the variety and quantity of foods necessary to do so,” says Gregory Kunin, President and Founder of Ola Loa. “Situational under nutrition is a primary reason why a beatable infection can turn into a full-blown flu. Taking Ola Loa powdered multivitamin during cold and flu season assures you get the extra immune boosting nutrients your body needs.”

The vitamin and mineral content of Ola Loa is specifically designed to combat cold and flu symptoms. Vitamin C increases the body's resistance to infection, while Vitamin A plays a central role in the development of white blood cells, such as lymphocytes, and plays a critical role in the immune response. Selenium increases the ability of white blood cells to eradicate an infection. Ola Loa also includes a combination of various amino acids, B vitamins, minerals and N-Acetylcysteine, that through methylation, stimulate intracellular glutathione, your body's most powerful immune booster.

In order to help the body fight an infection it is recommend that individuals take generous amounts of Vitamin C, Selenium, Vitamin A, the B vitamins and various amino acids. To get the same amount of vitamins and minerals in 1 packet of Ola Loa, one would need to:

•Eat 14 whole oranges to get 1000 mg Vitamin C
•Eat 2.5 cups of brown rice to get 50 mcg. Selenium
•Eat 5 cups of cabbage – to get 1000 iu Vitamin A
•Eat a 7.5 lb sirloin steak to get 100 mcg. Vitamin B-12
•Eat 25 bananas to get 600 mcg. Folic Acid
•Eat 25 whole avocados to get 10 mg Vitamin B-6
•Eat 2 lbs. of beets to get 1000 mg. TMG

Additionally, since high doses of sugar have been linked to decreased immunity, Ola Loa multi-vitamin mineral powder has only one gram of sugar per packet.
