Does It Work?
Free radicals are unstable compounds
formed in the body during metabolism and from exposure to environmental
sources such as pollution and cigarette smoke. Free radicals are
necessary for energy metabolism and immune function, but when too many
free radicals are formed, they can attack healthy cells, especially
their membrane lipids and proteins. This, in turn, is thought to affect
a number of functions in the body, including the best performance of
the immune system.
Beta-carotene is an important antioxidant
nutrient that protects healthy cells from oxidative and free radical
damage. Numerous studies have demonstrated the importance of
beta-carotene for normal immune function. The immune benefits of
beta-carotene are due to its vitamin A precursor role and its
antioxidant functions. Beta Carotene works by growing and multiplying
the number of infection fighting cells, natural killer cells and helper
T cells in the body.
Zinc is an essential
trace element involved in most aspects of cellular metabolism. General
signs of human zinc deficiency indicate that zinc has important
functions in maintaining immune function, normal growth and development
during pregnancy, wound healing, reproduction, healthy skin, and
growth. Numerous studies support the fundamental role of zinc in normal
immune response in humans. Immune cells must be able to rapidly divide
in order to respond to daily challenges. Like all rapidly dividing
cells, immune cells depend on adequate amounts of dietary zinc.
Blueberries contain a
powerful class of antioxidants known as proanthocyanidins.
Proanthocyanidins are among the most powerful natural free-radical
scavengers yet discovered. As such, proanthocyanidins have their own
unique place in the bodyís overall protection against harmful free
radical damage and not only do they have immune boosting properties,
they have anti-aging benefits, improve blood circulation and protects
from arteriosclerosis, enhances connective tissue health, enhances the
effects of vitamin C, helps to lower cholesterol levels, reduces
inflammation & edema, and lowers the risk of cancer, stroke, and
function can also be maintained by supporting a well balanced
production of cytokines (proteins that serve as messengers between
elderberry have indicated that it may have effective immuno-protective
abilities, by boosting the production of cytokines to help regulate the
body's immune response.
Honeysuckle has also
been reported for its immuno-protective properties by being a purifier
and cleanser of the body, removing toxins from the blood, liver and
urinary tracts, and the intestinal system. It has also been shown to
lower fevers and fight infections.
