Healthy Goods Lung+Immune
In general, humans have a low resiliency to recovery from disease. Why? Because of a high rate of inflammatory conditions, co-morbidities, and poor nutrition status that make it difficult for the body to bounce back.
Considering today’s immune and environmental challenges, lung health and resiliency within the body are more important than ever. It is crucial to provide your lungs and overall respiratory system with the targeted nutrients they need to function optimally during the immune season.
Another factor in lung health is related to the health of the always-connected gut, mouth, and lung microbiome. An abnormal assortment of gut bacteria, or dysbiosis, is associated with suboptimal lung health, and vice versa – changes in the lung microbiome also influence the composition of the gut microbiome.
Lung + Immune includes vitamins, antioxidants, phytonutrients, and detoxification-supporting nutrients to promote overall immune health within the respiratory system.
INGREDIENTS IN LUNG+IMMUNE
Vitamin C, Vitamin E, and Vitamin A
These three vitamins are potent antioxidants and are involved in immune health. Oxidative stress caused by free radicals and toxins is one factor that often causes damage to lung tissues. Antioxidants, like Vitamins C, E, and A help the body remove free radicals and toxins before they can cause more damage to tissues in the body.
Vitamin C supports the immune system in several ways, particularly within white blood cells (the primary pathogen-uptake cell type of the body). Vitamin C has been shown to support T cell (type of white blood cell) function and antibody production in combination with the B cell.
Vitamin E is an antioxidant whose primary function is to prevent oxidative stress of the fatty cell walls in the body. Vitamin E plays a role in the cell-mediated response, which is a response particularly found in the lungs.
Vitamin A is a pro-hormone immune modulator. That means is it is not officially a hormone but acts a whole lot like one. Vitamin A supports the immune cells in our body, known as phagocytes (neutrophils and macrophages).
Quercetin is a plant flavonoid polyphenol found in fruits and vegetables including onion, leafy green vegetables, broccoli, peppers, red grapes, berries, apples, green tea, black tea. Quercetin is known for its antioxidant activity and ability to protect cells from harmful free radicals. Its unique biological properties support healthy inflammatory levels. Quercetin supports zinc absorption within the cells.
Hesperidin is a plant flavonoid found primarily in citrus fruit such as oranges, tangerines, lemons, and limes, especially the peel. It functions as an antioxidant and is shown to maintain a normal inflammatory cytokine cascade. Hesperidin also exhibits activity to support the body’s innate resistance to pathogens.
N-Acetyl L-Cysteine (NAC)
NAC is a metabolite of the sulfur-containing amino acid cysteine. NAC stimulates the biosynthesis of glutathione, the body’s master antioxidant.
Glutathione is your body’s master detoxifier! It is your body’s most potent free radical scavenger and relieves the body of oxidative stress. Glutathione is especially important when a person is experiencing external stressors.
MSM supports respiratory health and healthy, normal inflammatory levels. It is a nutrient used to help with occasional allergies.
DMG aids in the production of metabolic intermediates, like a building block used to create hormones, key vitamins, and nucleic acids to support DNA and RNA health. DMG also supports the body by promoting an immune response.
Bromelain is an enzyme found in pineapple stem with immunomodulatory effects and promotes normal inflammatory levels. The combination of bromelain and quercetin provides powerful immunomodulating support for handling occasional seasonal discomforts, such as allergies or nasal congestion. Together they also support healthy inflammatory levels.
Octacosanol promotes healthy oxygen utilization in the tissues of the body, such as the heart, muscles, lungs, and brain. Octacosanol also maintains healthy oxygen levels during periods of diminished oxygen availability or increased oxygen demand. For example, octacosanol supports a healthy adaptation while participating in high altitude activities, during intense exercise, and for any high-stress situation that impacts lung health, respiration, and respiratory capacity.
