Our bodies are made with a built in immune system, but sometimes
that system becomes overwhelmed and needs some help with natural
solutions for immune support. Fortifying your immune system with
natural solutions allows the body's defenses to better fight off
harmful invaders and keep you healthy.
Natural Solutions: Blue Green Algae
Nutrients that support immune system function include Vitamin A,
beta-carotene, zinc, iron, B vitamins, amino acids,
polyunsaturated fatty acids, and nucleotides. Microalgae has an
abundance of all of these and is therefore a good natural
solution for immune system support. Studies have shown that
children who eat blue-green algae miss less school due to sick
days. Other studies of children diagnosed with zinc deficiency
showed superior immune response from those given blue-green algae
tablets. ("Edible Microalgae, Jeffrey J. Bruno, Ph.D.)
According to Karl Abrams, Chemistry professor, the carotenoids in
AFA protect the thymus gland and offer antioxidant protection to
immune cells. (Abrams, K. Algae to the Rescue. Logan House,
Natural Solutions: Beta Glucan
Another natural solution for immune support is the complex
carbohydrate beta glucan. Scientists found in the 1960s that beta
glucan has immune boosting properties. Studies reveal that WGP
beta glucan is able to activate macrophages (type of white blood
cell in body's defense system). Activating these macrophages can
result in a stronger immune system.
How Betan Glucan Works
Beta glucan is a complex carbohydrate of glucose. It can found in
yeast, bacteria, fungi and cereals like oats, barley and rye.
Each type of beta glucan has a unique structure with glucose
being linked together in different ways. This gives them
distinctive physical properties. The most potent anti-infective
beta glucan immunomodulator is derived from baker's yeast
(Saccharomyces cerevisiae) beta glucan branched with beta 1,6 and
beta 1,3 which enhances its ability to bind and stimulate
macrophages. This is the type used in Simplexity Health's Immusunmaking it another good natural solution for immune support.
