The First Line of Defense
The immune system is your body’s most important line of defense against infection and disease. It is a highly complex system composed mostly of a variety of different types of white blood cells, whose job it is to detect and eliminate abnormal cells and invading pathogens like bacteria and viruses. It is obvious that maintaining a strong, healthy immune system is extremely important.
Many natural substances have been shown to help boost the immune system in various ways, helping the body to fight off infections and eliminate potentially cancerous cells more effectively. The patented and clinically tested NatraMuneTM blend has been shown to enhance immune cell production and activity. The herb Andrographis paniculata has been shown in numerous trials to reduce the severity of cold symptoms. Amla and Holy Basil are also powerful immune modulators and have antibacterial properties.
Powerful Immune Support
Immune Support is a potent immune system support formula containing well researched ingredients in clinically effective dosages. It is designed to help improve immune system activity, promote the proliferation of immune system cells, and help prevent the occurrence of bacterial and viral infections. It is the perfect choice for anyone looking to improve their health and boost their defenses against colds, flu and other infections.
Your immune system is critical for the maintenance of good health. The cells of the immune system include T cells, which destroy infected cells and coordinate the immune response, B cells, which make antibodies to “flag” pathogens, macrophages and neutrophils which engulf invaders in a process called phagocytosis, and natural killer cells that induce cell death, or apoptosis, of infected cells. These cells act together in a complex, synergistic relationship in order to protect the body from invaders. Optimizing the immune response is essential for avoiding illness and infection.
Fortunately, there are many natural substances have been shown to help boost the immune system, helping the body to fight off infections and eliminate potentially cancerous cells more effectively. Immune Support from AOR contains a carefully selected combination of ingredients designed to optimize immune fuction, including the patented and clinically tested NatraMuneTM blend.
NatraMuneTM – A Proprietary Immune-Boosting Combination
This clinically proven complex includes mushroom, rice bran (Oryza sativa), olive leaf (Olea europaea) and yam extracts, all of which are plant-based immune modulators for superior immune support.
In vitro studies have shown that NatraMuneTM increases the activity of immune system cells called macrophages by 65%.
Previous studies have also shown that the β-glucans in mushrooms are capable of activating dormant macrophages.
In humans, an open-label study involving 18 subjects showed that 2 months of supplementation with 1000mg daily of NatraMuneTM resulted in an 18% increase in immune cell levels. This increase was observed for nearly all types of immune system cells, with natural killer cells, helper T cells, cytotoxic T cells, and B cells all increasing by at least 10%.
Furthermore, 16 of 18 subjects reported no symptoms of viral or bacterial infection throughout the study. In a follow-up study, five subjects were given 3000mg of NatraMuneTM per day. After two weeks, the subjects’ levels of natural killer cells had increased by 19% and natural killer cell activity, or cytotoxicity, had increased by 17%.
Andrographis paniculata is commonly used in Scandinavia as a cold and flu remedy and in traditional eastern medicine to treat fevers. In vitro and animal studies have shown that Andrographis possesses anti-inflammatory, fever reducing, anti-cancer, anti-viral, anti-malaria and immune system stimulating properties.
In humans at least seven placebo-controlled clinical trials have shown that it is effective for reducing cold symptoms. In one trial, 208 individuals with upper respiratory tract infections were given 60 mg of Andrographis per day. After 2 days, symptoms of sore throat, fatigue, sleep disturbance and nasal secretion were significantly improved compared to the placebo group.
Emblica officinalis, or Amla, is an effective antimicrobial agent and immune system enhancer. In vitro studies have revealed that amla reduces the immunosuppressive and free radical activity of toxic heavy metals and enhances the activity of macrophages. Amla has also shown promising anti-cancer properties.
Ocimum sanctum, or Holy Basil, is another herb with potent immunomodulatory, antimicrobial and antiparasitic activity. It has been shown to eliminate several bacterial species and the malaria causing parasite in vitro. Animal studies suggest that holy basil is an effective immune-system modulator, helping to promote a healthy immune response. Holy Basil also helps to reduce anxiety, stress, and inflammation. Maintaining healthy stress levels is important for preventing imbalances of the immune system.
