Researchers have demonstrated that a healthy diet and exercise are very important factors in maintaining a healthy immune system. Additionally, studies have suggested that proper supplementation may not only help support a healthy immune system, but may also help support the effectiveness of vaccines . . . so help yourself and your family by taking the most complete immune system
support available anywhere.
Don't let a weak immune system bring you down . . .
Immune-System-Plus contains a unique blend of
all Natural Ingredients which may
help support a healthy Immune System.
Beta Glucan is a natural substance found in such foods as oats, barley, mushrooms and yeasts. Technically, Beta Glucan (Beta 1,3/1,6 Glucan) is classified as a highly refined carbohydrate, made up of a string of glucose molecules, with the fats, proteins and other polysaccharides removed. Beta Glucan used to be very expensive to extract and purify, but recent technological break throughs have resulted in much more cost effective methods, so that now it has become available much cheaper than ever before. Beta Glucan is recognized by the FDA and is given a GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe) rating.
is thought to have
a systemic effect on the immune system.
Scientific studies on animals and humans, originating from such prestigious institutions as the University of Saskatchewan in Canada, Baylor College of Medicine, Brown Medical School, Tulane University and Harvard Medical School have
suggested it's ability to help support the immune system in numerous ways.
Unlike many other immune support supplements, research suggests that beta glucan does not over stimulate your immune system.
Alpha Lipoic Acid
Alpha Lipoic Acid (also known as thioctic acid or lipoic acid) is a very powerful, natural antioxidant, and is thought to be important for helping support the immune system. Alpha Lipoic Acid is found in potatoes, broccoli, and liver and also occurs naturally in our bodies, but not in the free form. The body actually converts Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA) to DiHydro Lipoc Acid (DHLA).
ALA and its cousin DHLA are often referred to as the "ultimate universal antioxidants". They (referred to collectively as LA) are the only antioxidants that are both fat and water soluble. Both can actually cross the blood/brain barrier to enter the brain. These unique qualities are important, because it means that LA can access all parts of all cells, giving it tremendous ability to scavenge free radicals wherever they may be. Additionally, LA can also recharge other antioxidants that have been used up. In the body, LA helps regenerate other antioxidants such as vitamin C, vitamin E and glutathione.
In addition to serving as the hub of the body's antioxidant network, lipoic acid is the only antioxidant that can boost the level of intracellular glutathione, a cellular antioxidant of tremendous importance.
The practical problem for those who wish to maintain healthful glutathione levels is that taking glutathione itself as a supplement does not boost cellular glutathione levels, since glutathione breaks down in the digestive tract before it reaches the cells. Therefore, the discovery that lipoic acid can effectively boost glutathione levels has very important implications
We actually get very little Lipoic acid in our food, Broccoli (one of the best food sources) for example, contains a mere 100 micrograms per 100 gram serving. This means you would have to eat over two pounds of broccoli to get one single milligram.
ALA supplementation is the only way to get the benefits of this powerful universal antioxidant and to enjoy the resulting increase in intracellular glutathione, which may help support a healthy immune system.
Colostrum is the pre-milk fluid produced from the mother's mammary glands during the first 72 hours after birth. Colostrum is thought to provide life-supporting immune and growth factors that insure the health and vitality of the newborn.
Colostrum is the first food of life! Immune and growth factors in colostrum provide the newborn with the essential nutrients needed to begin a healthy life.
Bovine (cow) colostrum is nearly identical to human colostrum but research suggests it is four times richer in immune factors than human colostrum. Best of all, bovine colostrum may help support a healthy immune system to all mammals -- humans -- and pets as well!
Immune factors in colostrum can help balance and support a healthy immune system; which is the key to good health.
Vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin and is known as ascorbic acid . . . meaning "without scurvy" (the disease caused by a vitamin C deficiency).
Most species of animals have the ability to synthesize Vitamin C in their liver from glucose. Human beings however, are among only a handful of animals, including primates and guinea pigs, who cannot produce their own supply of vitamin C. We depend on ascorbic acid for many aspects of our biochemical functioning, and so we have no choice but to obtain this nutrient in our diet or through supplementation.
Vitamin C can be found in fruits such as oranges, grapefruits, tangerines, lemons, limes, papaya, strawberries and cantaloupe. Vitamin C and bioflavonoids - the watersoluble substances that help to protect your capillaries - are found in the white linings of these and other plants. Many vegetables also pack in vitamin C including tomatoes, broccoli, green and red bell peppers, raw lettuce and other leafy greens.
Vitamin C is absorbed by an active transport system located in the gut and then reabsorbed through the kidneys. Since the absorption mechanisms in the gut and kidneys can reach a saturation point, it is better to take multiple doses of vitamin C throughout the day than one large dose.
Much like the immune system itself, which operates at a cellular level, the hardworking vitamin C reaches every cell of the body. The concentration of vitamin C in both blood serum and tissues is quite high. In fact, this nutrient plays a major role in the manufacture and defense of our connective tissue, the elaborate matrix that holds the body together. It serves as a primary ingredient of collagen, a glue-like substance that binds cells together to form tissues.
Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxine) and Vitamin B12 (Cobolamine)
Vitamin B6 and B12 are thought to help support the immune system.
Vitamin B6 deficiency has been shown to depress both cell-mediated and humoral immune responses.
Vitamin B12 deficiency has also been linked to poor immune function.
Research suggests that even people with only marginally low levels of B-vitamins show signs of weakened immune systems
and that the B Vitamins may help support B-cell and T-cell function.
Folate (Pteroylglutamic acid or Vitamin B9)
Folic acid plays a crucial role in DNA and protein synthesis and is required for the normal cycle of cell division and prliferation, therefore, effecting the proliferative response of immune cells. Animal and human studies in folate deficient subjets have demonstrated reduced lymphocyte DTH response and natural killer cell activity. Cell-mediated immunity is especially effected by folate deficiency: the blastogenic response of T lymphocytes to certain mitogens is decreased in folate-deficient humans and animals, and the thymus is preferentially altered. The effects of folic acid deficiency upon humoral immunity have been more thoroughly investigated in animals than in humans, and the antibody responses to several antigens have been shown to decrease. Conversely, the phagocytic and bactericidal capacities of polymorphonuclear cells have been studied mainly in folate-deficient humans.
Selenium is a significant cellular antioxidant and is thought to help support a healthy immune system.
Some researcher believe that certain viruses become stronger and hardier in selenium-deficient people. Similarly, selenium-deficient animals are thought to be more susceptible to cardiac damage from viruses.
Animals with selenium deficiency are thought to have lesss effective neutrophils.
Tri Methyl Glycine
Trimethylglycine (TMG) also known as anhydrous betaine, is a naturally occurring phytonutrient found in a variety of plants and animals, with its highest concentrations in beets, leafy green vegetables, and legumes. Since it can be difficult to eat enough of these foods to provide the body with sufficient methyl groups, supplementation is necessary.
Chemically, TMG functions as a Methyl Donor, which is why it has a great ability to reduce elevated levels of homocysteine to normal. In fact TMG is such a good Methyl doner that in addition to effectively lowering the levels of HOMOCYSTEINE, it also increases the beneficial S-adenosyl-methionine (SAM) levels. Furthermore, after losing its methyl group, TMG becomes DMG (dimethylglycine), a well recognized energy-boosting nutrient.
TMG has got all the properties of DMG but because it has one extra Methyl Group, it is known to be a more efficient Methyl Donor than DMG. After Methyl donation, it stays useful in the metabolism as DMG thus having a double benefit. This is also known as BETAINE.
DMG is an amino acid that is predominantly found in grains. It is a member of the family of nutrients that include choline, betaine (trimethyl-glycine), sarcosine (methylglycine) and glycine. This family of compounds supplies the body with an essential biochemical group (a methyl group) that allows conversions of substances in the bodies intricate biochemical pathways.
In two independent studies, researchers at the Medical University of South Carolina and at Clemson University, have both suggested that TMG may help support a healthy immune system.
Elderberry Extract is derived from the berries of the fragrant, flowering Elder tree.
There are several active ingredients in Elderberries.
Analytical research conducted in Europe shows that elderberries are concentrated sources of anthocyanins, potent purple pigments known as flavonoids.
Elderberries are also rich in tannins and vitiamin C.
Ongoing research in Europe is focusing on the anthocyanins found in elderberries. According to this research, these anthocyanins possess noticably more antioxidant capacity than either vitamin E or vitamin C. The research also suggest that elderberry anthocyanins may help support immune system by boosting the production of cytokines.
Andrographis paniculata is a shrub found throughout China, India and other countries in subtropical and Southeast Asia. Both the fresh and dried leaves, as well as the fresh juice of the whole plant, have been used as a popular herb in Chiinese medicine.
Modern science has finally taken note, and now researchers have isolated a number of the herb's active ingredients. Chief among these phytochemicals are diterpene lactones known as andrographolides, which exert their effects, on tissues of the blood cell-producing bone marrow and/or spleen.
A recent studies performed at the universities of Exeter and Plymouth in the United Kingdom, have suggested that andrographis may very well help support a healthy immune system.
