Nutrition and the Immune System

Posted Jul 14 2010 9:50am
The primary function of the immune system is to protect the body from infection, damage and ultimately disease. Recurrent or chronic infections occur only when the immune system is weakened by a lack of proper nutrition or by excesses of stress, pollution, radiation, toxins and/or exposure to a vast array of infectious microorganisms. In a healthy system, the initial exposure to these offending agents creates an allergic reaction, an inflammatory response and then healing. However many individuals can benefit from digestive support for immune system benefits.

• A digestive enzyme formula with meals will help ensure proper digestion and bio-availability of all nutrients supporting cellular integrity and a strong immune system.

• A probiotic supplement further supports digestion and the immune system while maintaining a healthy gut environment.

• A protease formula between meals will help promote optimal blood and lymphatic flow, supporting delivery of nutrients and removal of toxins. Proteases also help manage inflammation and support the immune system.
