Thompsons Fortify Immunofort 120s
The human immune system is an impressive defence mechanism, capable of carrying out immune surveillance to eliminate damaged or abnormal cells, recognising and destroying infectious organisms. The first line of defence occurs in the body’s tissues. Patrolling macrophages (large scavenger cells) engulf foreign invaders and call upon powerful T-cells to join the fight. T-cells, manufactured by the thymus gland, escalate the immune response and secrete chemicals that disable or destroy viruses. Increased immune activity stimulates the production of antibodies, which ‘remember’ particular invaders and produce a faster and stronger response should the virus strike again. How well this team of immune cells functions is largely dependent on an adequate supply of specific nutrients. Recent trials suggest that certain nutrients, when provided in adequate potencies, may work to significantly improve immunity.
IMMUNOFORT provides a unique combination of nutrients to ensure healthy immune function. Antioxidants such as Vitamin A, C and E, Zinc and Selenium feature to help reduce free radical damage and inflammation. Amino Acids including Ornithine and Lysine encourage antibody production. Along with Zinc and Selenium, the minerals Magnesium, Manganese, Iron and Copper provide nutritional support for immune system activities. Furthermore, herbs such as Echinacea, Ginseng and Shitake mushrooms are all well known for their ability to promote cellular immunity. Nutrition research has focused attention on the vital role of nutrients in the defence of the body against more serious degenerative diseases and age related disorders.
