Boost Your Immune System

The Immune System

It’s Your Body’s Life Saver!

Boost your immune systemYou and a friend step into a crowded elevator and immediately notice two people coughing and sneezing up a storm.

Within a couple of days you come down with a bad cold — and blame it on that elevator ride. Yet your friend — exposed to the same germs at the same time — remains perfectly healthy.

What made the difference? The power of the immune system. It’s a network that can help us avoid illness — or sometimes become the underlying reason we get sick.

“The strength of our immune system is what makes the difference between who gets sick and who doesn’t. The one with the immune system functioning below base-line normal has an increased risk of getting sick,” says Woodson Merrell, MD, director of integrative medicine at Beth Israel Medical Center in New York City. http://www.webmd.com

But is there anything you can do to keep your immune system from dropping below par? YES!

A powerfully advanced bovine colostrum formula designed to super-charge your body’s immune system.

New Isamune® Plus with Zinc is one way to help keep immune system cells up for the task. This formulation combines zinc with bovine colostrum, Echinacea and Reishi mushrooms. Together, these ingredients work synergistically to guard against and help fight off “foreign invaders” in the body.

illustration immune systemThe human immune system is a remarkably complex network of cells, tissues and organs that act as the body’s first line of defense against infection and disease. As a whole, the immune system comprises the skin, thymus, spleen, bone marrow, white blood cells, complement system, cytokines and several hormones. Each individual component plays an integral part in protecting us against microbes, toxins and viruses. Many different cell types are involved in the immune system including B and T cells, macrophages, granulocytes and hematopoietic stem cells.

To maintain the proper function and integrity of this immunological defense, the immune system’s complexity requires a healthy diet containing numerous essential vitamins and minerals that act in concert. Staying healthy can also use a little help from a few supplements in Isamune Plus with Zinc to keep the immune system primed to fight against foreign invaders on a daily basis.

Zinc

Zinc is a mineral involved directly in host defense. Zinc acts on thymulin, a hormone that promotes T-cell function and differentiation. A compromised immune response and increased oxidative stress is observed in humans and other animals deficient in zinc (1-7). A mild zinc deficiency causes an imbalance in T-helper cells and interferes with activities of interleukins, which are signaling proteins that regulate the immune response (3). Isamune Plus with Zinc contains zinc in the form of zinc gluconate, shown to help maintain reserves to guard against a compromised immune system (2).

Colostrum

Bovine colostrum is  the first milk produced by a cow after giving birth and has a distinct composition from the regular milk produced afterwards. Colostrum provides the mother an immediate ability to transfer immune-protecting substances to the newborn.

Colostrum contains several “immune factors” including: immunoglobulins, growth factors, cytokines, proline-rich polypeptides and lactoferrin . Immunoglobulins are a class of antibodies passed from the mother to provide her calf with the building blocks for a healthy immune system. Growth factors and cytokines support tissue repair and rejuvenation. Proline-rich polypeptides (PRPs) help modulate the immune response by regulating cytokine synthesis. Lactoferrin is an iron-containing protein that functions in iron homeostasis. Compounds in colostrum may also inhibit oxidative stress signaling pathways.

The importance of human colostrum for the newborn’s immune system is well recognized and the components of bovine colostrum are relatively similar to those in humans. Studies suggest that supplementation with colostrum may strengthen the immune system in humans. Previous research found a statistically significant increase in levels of immunoglobulins in distance runners after 12 weeks of supplementation.

Isamune Plus with Zinc provides each of the important components in colostrum: immunoglobulins, PRPs and lactoferrin.

Echinacea

Echinacea (Echinacea purpurea) is a flowering plant from the daisy family, Asteraceae, and is endemic to North America. The perennial plant’s roots and leaves are traditionally used by Native Americans for its medicinal qualities. In recent randomized controlled trials, scientists found that a beneficial effect on the immune system was attributable to echinacea.

Reishi Mushroom

Reishi Mushroom (Ganoderma lucidum) is a woody mushroom highly regarded in traditional medicine and long consumed for its immune-modulating and overall health benefits. It’s unique in being consumed for it’s medicinal, rather than it’s nutritional, value.

In Japan, reishi mushroom is consumed either as a tea or powder and reputed to increase youthful vigor and vitality. One study showed significant beneficial changes in immune cells when given the mushroom extract for 12 weeks . Similarly, another study found that reishi mushroom stimulated immune system regulation. These results and others provide supporting evidence for the immunomodulatory effect of reishi mushroom.
