Natural Immune System Enhancers
We rely on the immune response for survival. But under certain circumstances, the system’s ability to do its job properly can be compromised. These conditions may include environmental pollution, poor diet, injury or fatigue. Any of these could have a negative effect on immune function. Nutrition is another possible problem. Normally, our food would provide adequate nutrients for immune support, but over the last century, we have seen evidence suggesting that chemical fertilizers and genes alteration changed natural plant growing cycle on a cellular basis. Scientific study showed that stress also plays a part in depressing the immune system function.
The human body is made of cells that are constantly replacing themselves. Every person produces 100 million new cells a day. Some of these cells mutate as they reproduce. It’s the role of the immune system to find these mutant cells and destroy them before they take over. So it’s important that we do everything we can to maintain healthy immune system.
Our top nutritional products feature a unique blend of mushroom species which play important role in supporting immune function and has been widely investigated in the scientific community.
All plants produce certain kinds of sugars - a source of energy that forms the walls in many plant cells. Some of the complex sugars in mushrooms are called alpha and beta glucans and are the focus of studies concerning their effect on the human immune system. Beta glucans are not produced naturally in our bodies they must come from plant and animal sources. That’s where these individual species come in. Maitake mushrooms, for example, are exceptionally high in beta glucans, while shittake mushrooms have high concentrations of alpha glucans. Beta glucans binds to receptors found on the surface of macrophages, granulocytes, and natural killer cells (a group of specialized white blood cells called phagocytes that attack invaders). The activated phagocyte devours invading microorganisms, tumor cells, dead body cells, mutated cells, and infected cells, all of which, if not rapidly eliminated from the body, can be responsible for a wide range of health problems. Additionally, activated macrophage cells release cytokines that initiate a cascade of immunity-related functions, some stimulating the formation of white blood cells, others sending messages to B and T cells that prompt the adaptive immune response, and others regulating the inflammatory response. Beta Glucan balances immuno-chemicals, resulting in a healthy immune response that limits inappropriate reactions in the future.
Bovine colostrum has been used medicinally for thousands of years. It is the milk produced by cows just prior to and after birth. If the newborn calf does not get colostrum from its mother within the first week, it will die. Unlike in humans, there is no placental transfer of antibodies in cows, so the calf must get it all from the colostrum. This factor may elevate colostrum's potential in human supplementation.
The spectrum of potential health benefits associated with the consumption of colostrum is innumerable. Research has shown that regular consumption of colostrum can help the thymus gland re-grow to its youthful size.
Thymus Gland by age 40 is typically only ten percent the size it was at birth. At its peak at the time of puberty, the thymus gland can weigh as much as 40 grams. By age 70, it can be as little as 5 grams.
Primary consideration for rebuilding the thymus gland are the numerous immune and growth factors contained in colostrum. They are known to promote healing, slow down cellular breakdown, and accelerate tissue growth. It is these growth factors that may be capable of restoring the thymus gland and actually returning it to youthful function and proportions. Colostrum also contains a hormone called Proline-Rich Polypeptide, also known as thymulin. It is essential for optimal functioning of the thymus and helps to establish homeostasis, regulating the gland and immune system up or down as needed.
