Generally, I try not to say, “Oh, (insert terrible thing here) never happens to me!” I’ve made that mistake many a time, only to have said terrible thing happen like clockwork mere days later. (See examples 1 – 7354, including: catching the flu, breaking a bone, losing my passport, being stood up, and so on).
So, it is with some trepidation that I write this post. Don’t punish me, fate!
I’ve been taking an immune-boosting supplement for the past couple of months called SmartMune. During this time, I’ve been burning the candle at both ends, under a lot of stress, and traveling like I’m on the run from the law. (Side note: a boyfriend once asked me, in all seriousness, whether I was in the CIA. This inane question absolutely delighted me.) Simultaneously…perhaps not-so-coincidentally…during this time, I also have NOT gotten sick.
I’m just saying.
SmartMune features something called Wellmune WGP, which is a nutritional supplement derived from yeast which apparently triggers your body’s immune system. ( Sciency, science, here .) You pop one in the morning on an empty stomach, et voila.
I’m not implying that I’m never going to get sick again–let’s be real–but I figure, every little bit helps!
