Warding off viruses and disease
A strong immune system is worth its weight in
diamonds...but most people don't understand and
appreciate how important it is to good health, and so they
don't take care of it.
A weakened immune system opens you up to countless
sicknesses and diseases...ranging from a cold or flu to
To gain a better appreciation for your immune system, you
need to know everything it does for you "behind the scenes"
day in and day out:
Your immune system actually has two "branches"--cell
mediated immunity and humoral immunity--that work in very
specific ways to keep your body disease-free.
Cell mediated immunity
Cell mediated immunity works by involving the protective
actions of specific types of cells:
1- It activates T-lymphocytes (or T CELLS), which are a
type of white blood cell that attacks and destroys
pathogens like viruses, harmful bacteria, fungi and tumor
2- It sets off natural killer cells (that fight viruses
and tumors) and macrophages (large cells that engulf and
"eat" disease-causing organisms, kind of like Pac-Man).
3- It triggers the secretion of CYTOKINES--proteins that
activate your macrophages and natural killer cells.
Cytokines are also very important for wound healing and
reducing inflammation in your body.
Humoral immunity involves the typical antibody/antigen
reaction. Your body produces special proteins (antibodies)
in response to antigens--foreign "invaders" such as
viruses, bacteria or toxins.
When the "invader" (antigen) is detected in your body, the
antibodies attack by attaching themselves to the surface of
the antigens to destroy and eliminate them.
Clearly this internal protection system is NOT something
you want to ignore.
It's not just about avoiding a cold or flu--Your life very
well may depend on your immune system's ability to fight
off diseases like cancer.
Research shows that there's an easy, effective way to make
sure your immune system stays in top shape--probiotic
Recent studies have shown that Lactobacillus GG enhances
both cell-mediated and humoral immunity, and Lactobacillus
acidophilus DDS-1 stimulates immune system cells.
Both of these powerhouse bacteria strains are in Blue Rock
Holistics' Super Shield.
When formulating Super Shield, the immune system was one
of our TOP concerns.
So we chose the most well researched, proven immune-
enhancing strains to not only help the average person, but
also people who were already fighting sickness or disease--
people whose immune systems were already compromised.
Give YOUR immune system the strong boost it deserves--and
it will repay you many times over for years to come. Learn
