Is Caviar Better than Immune-Boosting Foods?

How caviar tops the charts in immune-boosting capabilities

Save the soup and pass the caviar

Psst! You want in on a little secret? Caviar is packed to the gills – pun intended – with a unique blend of nutrients that, when combined, form the best superfood on the planet. The particular fusion of antioxidants, amino acids, rich proteins, and healthy fats found in caviar has an unparalleled ability to maintain a robust immune system.

Every time cold and flu season rolls around, we are inundated with wellness claims about how to ward off viral illness. From fruits to vegetables, herbs to teas, and supplements to superstition, keep reading while we break down the pros and cons of some of the most oft-recommended remedies to perk you up when you’re feeling under the weather. Right off the bat, we’re going to go ahead and let you know that superstition is not a good strategy. You want real health? You have to start with your diet. If you’re in the market for a way to reduce inflammation, repair tissue, maintain healthy skin, boost your immune system, or fight off an infection, look no further than caviar. And, you might be surprised which foods don’t stack up to its bacteria-busting effects.

Caviar vs. Ginger

Ginger has been a staple in human life for longer than history has been recorded. For at least 5000 years, both Indian and Chinese cultures relied on ginger as a tonic to treat many ailments, such as colds, nausea, arthritis, migraine, and hypertension.[1] Its pungent taste is attributed to the presence of gingerol, which is a distant relative of capsaicin. Gingerols help modulate levels of calcium in our cells to reduce inflammation.[2] [3]

While gingerols are generally accepted weapons against chronic and long-term inflammation, caviar is a good choice for acute inflammation. Caviar, on the other hand, fights inflammation via omega-3 fatty acids. Shortly after consuming caviar, its omega-3s pump the brakes on the body’s production of inflammatory substances. While inflammation is a natural reaction to infection and injury, “excessive or inappropriate inflammation contributes to a range of acute and chronic human diseases.”[4] Omega-3 fatty acids target inflammatory substances such as neutrophils, mast cells, basophils, and eosinophils. These harbingers of inflammation are the first responders to the scene of an injury, and not only do the omega-3s in caviar inhibit inflammation, but they also support processes that repair damaged tissue.

Caviar vs. Spinach

Ever since Popeye first launched as a comic strip in 1929, we’ve looked at spinach as the epitome of a nutritional pick-me-up. With just one serving of spinach. Popeye’s physical prowess grew exponentially, right before your very eyes. So how helpful actually is it?

Spinach is full of beta carotene, which is the pigment that causes plants to have a bright red, orange, or yellow color.[5] Beta carotene is an antioxidant that our bodies can convert into vitamin A, also known as retinol. Vitamin A helps us see in the dark, maintain healthy skin, and support immune function.[6]

Vitamin A is only found in animal foods, never plants. “Plant sources contain vitamin A in the form of carotenoids which have to be converted during digestion into retinol before the body can use it.”[7] Regrettably, this process is inefficient in humans. The conversion rate from beta carotene to vitamin A is quite low, not to mention a proportionately miserable percentage of carotenoids from plant foods eventually get absorbed.[8]

Caviar is an ideal source of vitamin A because the vitamin is readily available for absorption. Without having to sift, convert, or waste anything, our digestive system is able to reap the immune benefits of retinol.

Caviar vs. Turmeric

If you’re a curry fan, you already know all about turmeric. Lately, though, the vibrant golden spice has spread from food to a much wider assortment of human applications: topical acne treatments, tooth whiteners, and inflammatory joint relief.[9]

Turmeric deploys curcumin, which is a naturally-occurring plant-based micronutrient,  in its fight against inflammation. Although curcumin has powerful anti-inflammatory properties and is a strong antioxidant, it represents a fairly low percentage of turmeric’s total weight. Therefore, in order to reap any immune benefits from turmeric, a highly concentrated serving would need to be consumed. This is typically only possible through the use of a synthetic supplement.[10] As you know, a highly concentrated supplement is inefficiently absorbed and can potentially lead to toxic levels of the targeted micronutrient.

Small but mighty, caviar packs a punch. Rather than using curcumin, caviar reduces inflammation through its use of omega-3s, which directly target the inflammation-causing agents deployed by the immune system. To receive a comparative benefit to curcumin consumption, you only need to ingest a relatively small amount of caviar. Plus, it won’t stain everything in your kitchen.

Caviar vs. Green Tea

Green tea has elevated levels of an antioxidant called epigallocatechin gallate (don’t worry – just call it EGCG), which has been shown to enhance immune function.[11] EGCG supports the production and regulation of B-cell responses.[12] The primary role of B-cells is to generate millions of antibodies using the unique antigen information received from pathogens.

Caviar not only uses amino acids to assist B-cell activity, but it also has omega-3 fatty acids on the team. Omega-3s also activate B-cells, multiplying their immunoglobulin production, and enhancing B-cell function.

Caviar vs. Over-the-Counter Supplements

At the first sign of oncoming illness, many Americans stock up on wellness supplements to ward off symptoms and recover faster. The top three choices are usually vitamin D, zinc, and vitamin C.[13] Vitamin D ramps up the effectiveness of white blood cells such as monocytes and macrophages. Zinc aids in the development of immune cells. Vitamin C cleans out old, infected cells and replaces them with healthy new ones.

All three of these micronutrients are essential components of a balanced diet and robust immune system, but what’s the best way to get them in your body? Obviously the best case scenario is to obtain all the necessary nutrients in your diet through the food you eat. On the off chance that strategy is not working out for you, you’re likely to reach for the targeted dietary supplement next – and that choice may hurt you more than help you.

Whole foods found in nature possess a variety of micronutrients that are naturally formulated to be complementary. These formulations have inherently synergistic effects on our internal systems. When we try to overcompensate in one area, it can create a ripple effect that throws the rest of our internal processes out of alignment. Additionally, supplements that are engineered to isolate a specific nutritional concern may not be absorbed by your body at all. Synthetic supplements are created artificially in a laboratory setting. The wide range of mineral compounds found in natural foods allow for synergistic interactions that optimize the effectiveness of the various vitamins and minerals contained therein.[14] Not only do you lose out on the network effects, you also run the risk of introducing toxic levels of certain micronutrients into your body.[15]

Caviar, alternatively, is a naturally nutrient-diverse food that already contains an assortment of micronutrients. Using the roe of wild-caught Norwegian herring, we bring you an immune health solution that is about as close to the source as it comes, aside from traveling to Norway yourself. Our caviar is dried and reduced to a powder form to make Cavi Boost Immunity easy to transport and consume on the go, but that is the extent of our human intervention. We do not add artificial preservatives, dyes, flavors, or nutritional fortifications. All of the vitamins and minerals needed to keep your immune system in tip-top shape are already present. We developed a very specific process to formulate Cavi Boost Immunity that does not add or remove anything from caviar as it exists in nature. This process not only makes it shelf stable and easy to consume on the go, but technically maintains its “raw” status (as it’s never heated above 40 degrees celsius) as well. By using low temperatures, we are able to preserve the nutritional density and bioavailability of caviar’s bounty.

Caviar vs. Chicken Soup

Chicken is a natural source of vitamin B6, which is a highly versatile micronutrient that plays a part in over 100 different enzyme reactions.[16] One of the major benefits of B6 is building red blood cells, which supports a strong immune system by distributing oxygen throughout the bloodstream.

Caviar is also rich in vitamin B6 but has at least one distinct advantage: the wild-caught Norwegian herring used in our Cavi Boost Immunity supplement is harvested from a sustainable source. Looking to maximize profit, “Big Chicken” resorts to horrific tactics to bring you the bird. Exploiting laborers, overusing antibiotics to curb infection, and literally abusing animals are some of the strategies used to squeeze as much juice out of a dollar as possible.[17] Cavi Boost Immunity has exactly one ingredient, and we can tell you exactly where that ingredient comes from and how it was processed. Can you say that about any other food you eat?

The comparison doesn’t end there. Chicken soup is a good source of immune-boosting minerals such as phosphorus and magnesium. Plus, it contains proteins that provide amino acids to build antibodies and fight infection. Caviar has all of those nutrients, too…only, in a higher concentration. And, a more complete array of amino acids.[18][19]

Why Cavi Boost Immunity is an essential part of your health plan

Our supplement is not recommended as a meal replacement and should not be consumed in lieu of any piece of your regular diet. The best nutrition plans provide an array of micronutrients and a wide variety of natural, whole foods. But if you’re looking for a way to add some pep in the step of your immune system, be it for extra protection during cold and flu season or just a generally enhanced level of cellular function, Cavi Boost Immunity is a must-have complement to an already balanced diet. It amps up lymphatic function, feeds your skin, and energizes your mind. Plus, it’s a lot easier to take on the go than chicken soup.
