For most people “immune system” is an abstract concept—after all, it’s not just one organ, or gland, or part that you can point to. It’s a bunch of things—immune cells that get released when triggered by a pathogen, your lymph system, your skin (first line of defense!), your GI tract…
So what does it mean when your immune system is low? It could mean it’s not working hard, or well. When we’re stressed, or our diet lacks enough key nutrients, our immune system may be less than it’s best, or low. Lack of sleep, time changes (from travel or daylight savings time) or even lack of sunlight in the winter can make your immune system “low”. And multiple stressors? You could really be functioning at less than your best!
What sort of things make the immune system strong? Touch is a good one, like from a massage. A stranger’s skin, with it’s own flora (bacterial) colony stimulates your immune system by exposing it to new pathogens in a very low risk way. It also stimulates your brain to release feel-good hormones that make your immune system stronger, and you happier. A massage is a great way to start cold and flu season.
What else combats a “low” immune system? Getting enough nutrients! Nutrients are the building blocks of everything in you, and if your immune system is going to be “running hard” because it’s cold and flu season, you.re going to need to supply it with more building blocks. A daily multivitamin will cover your bases.
Or you can go for a more targeted approach—supplement and stimulate your immune system with our Immune Booster Pack. It contains immune system supporting colloidal silver and Immune PWRx, a natural supplement whose star ingredient is colostrum, the first milk, full of immune cells. It also draws from mushrooms that have immune stimulating properties.
Why should you support your immune system? Because things compound. When you get sick, your immune system is “low” while it focuses on the illness. Even mild inflammation you barely notice can distract and lower your immune defenses!
So be sure to support your immune system everyday, because there’s always something trying to lower it—a missed breakfast, a long night, or a looming deadline at work.
