7 Nutrients For Strong Immunity & Cellular Health

7 Nutrients For Strong Immunity & Cellular Health

Cellular health is the foundation of heath itself and revolves around cellular harmonics and here are 7 Nutrients For Strong Immunity & Cellular Health.

Happy cells and happy Mitochondria will bring long term health, happiness and vitality. Most health principles taught in schools, magazines, social media and on the TV is a superficial, monetised, understanding and a surface layer truth. The days of simply counting calories, burning fat and building muscle as lead catalysts to health based on your outer appearance is now out dated and extinct. Feeling good about yourself starts at a cellular level and works forward from here, the cell, not the other way around and once understood and applied, your body will reflect the better lifestyle behaviours and habits. It is a choice.

In the last 18+ months since late 2019 we have seen a surge in peer reviewed studies from virologists and nutrition experts from around the world verifying the effectiveness of specific key nutrients for the “prevention” of inflammation and mucus based conditions caused by the natural cleansing processes of the body AKA the common cold, flu and other similar viral activations.

It is a simple science that 80%+ of people do not understand nor apply much focus to due to a poor understanding of what exosomes/coronaviruses actually do in the body. When people start to learn and understand that the body is in a state of continuous healing, rebalancing and cleansing, is when we can make some big moves towards health in a genuine form and at a cellular level.

When the body reaches a perceived excess and accumulation in hormones, stress, chemicals, genetic material, heavy metals, toxins, emotional energy, and other cellular disruptions, the body starts flushing and expelling the unwanted material seeking rebalance. This flushing can take anywhere from a few days to a few weeks. Some events with severe symptoms and some with minimal to zero signs.

Mainly caused by stress and at the end of colder months due to a change in cellular environment due to a lack of movement (sweat, blood flow and hormonal balance), poor nutrition (key vitamins and minerals) and increases in cellular stress in all its various forms.

Mucus, sweat, heat, urine, feces, vomit, tears, sound/EMF and energy can all be used as devices to expel and clean the body. The body always speaks its truth and all symptoms are signals and signs for change.

Inflammation, deficiencies in vitamin and minerals and excess emotional and mental stress are the main causes of colds and flus and is an environmental state rather than something you catch as the exosomes responsible (also known as viruses) are already in your body, in their millions, ready to do their cleaning job. Goal is to keep them quiet and working optimally. This is done by maintaining a strong immune system and a strong environmental cellular state.

No symptoms are a sign of health, balance and optimal cellular function. Symptoms are a sign for change and adjustment.

What are the key vitamins to ensure a strong and effective immune response?

The body is a musical instrument and all our organs, cells and DNA require ongoing tuning and we do that utilising the harmonics found in vitamins, minerals, salts, energy and water.

Vitamins D, C, & A, Zinc, Glutathione/NAC, L-Arginine, and Quercetin are essential for optimising an effective immune response to infections however it is also found that ensuring a good intake of vitamin E, pure water, trace minerals, selenium, collagen and boron have an even more dramatic effect on health and vitality. Lets start here.

Nutrient therapy is safe and effective as well as inexpensive compared to current medical costs for most treatments.

Vitamin A, C, D3, E and Zinc quick guide.

VITAMIN D

Vitamin D plays a major roll in cellular antigen and immune responses. Deficiencies in Vitamin D are high in the general human population and requires attention to amend.

B cells, T cells, and antigen presenting cells are major catalysts and players in immune function and have special receptors for Vitamin D which helps regulate both innate (non-specific) and adaptive immune (specific) antibody responses. These specific and non-specific immunes responses are paramount. Deficiency of Vitamin D is associated with compromised immune function and higher risk of infection. Respiratory tract infections (inflammation and mucus) such as tuberculosis and influenza are highly associated with Vitamin D deficiency.

The British Medical Journal (BMJ) released a meta-analysis study which concluded that Vitamin D is safe and effective in protecting against respiratory tract infections and in fact states it is a necessary and essential vitamin. Vitamin D can induce Cathelicidins and Defensins. Cathelicidins and Defensins are antimicrobial peptides (AMPs) that provide protection against viruses and other micro-organisms. In respiratory conditions we have inflammation which leads to injury of the lung tissue hence why ICU’s are not ideal as they cause pressure trauma to the tissue. Cathelicidins and Defensins reduce inflammation and promote tissue repair improving respiratory track conditions.

Many studies were and are still being conducted to investigate the effects of Vitamin D in the prevention and treatment of the Common Cold (Coronavirus), Flu and other respiratory conditions with various names.

The Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism published an article which found that Vitamin D deficiency was found in 82.2 % of respiratory cases, including SARS-CoV-2, and that blood levels of Vitamin D were lower in hospitalised patients compared to those that did not need hospitalisation and recovered.

This highlights clearly that these respiratory cases and patients had underlying conditions revolving around vitamin and mineral deficiencies causing mucus and inflammation resulting in hospitalisation.

Prevention is always better than the cure.

VITAMIN C

Vitamin C also plays a role in both innate and adaptive immune responses. It helps increase the production and effectiveness of B cells, which produce the antibodies that fight infections. Vitamin C also enhances T cells activity, which can kill infections. Therefore, Vitamin C deficiency leads to an increased susceptibility to infections and ineffective immune response.

Vitamin C is essential and because it is a water-soluble vitamin and must be replenished daily to prevent deficiencies. Deficiencies of Vitamin C can lead to severe illnesses and even death.

Research is showing that Vitamin C, with respect to prevention and treatment of respiratory cases, including SARS-CoV-2, suggests exciting revelations. In fact, several studies report intravenous Vitamin C shortens ICU stay and duration of mechanical ventilation in critically ill patients due to a reduction in inflammation and mucus.

A recent study suggests the role of Vitamin C deficiency on SARS-CoV-2 where it was found that Vitamin C levels were undetectable in 90% of the 18 patients. This is significant. Another study measured Vitamin C and D levels in 21 people with critical SARS-CoV-2 illness and they found most critically ill patients had low Vitamin C and D levels.

In another study from March of 2020, intravenous Vitamin C was given to 50 moderate to severe COVID patients. All 50 patients recovered without incident and on average 3 to 5 days faster than the standard of care control group which also reported several deaths. The average daily cost of treatment was very low with little to no side effects compared to other options.

Prevention is always better than the cure.

VITAMIN A

Vitamin A performs a variety of tasks in our immune system. This fat-soluble vitamin is needed for health of all mucus membranes such as sinuses, mouth, lungs, and the digestive tract.

Vitamin A also plays an important role in the production and functioning of certain immune cells such as Macrophages and Neutrophils, which act as a first line of defense. Dendritic cells help the immune system recognise and fight specific antigens.

Vitamin A also enhances secretory IgA protecting against pathogens. Immunoglobulin A (IgA) is an antibody made by white blood cells. It’s concentrated in fluids that cover mucous membranes in the body, such as those in the gut, respiratory system, eyes, and mouth. IgA works to protect the body from infections and toxins while building immune tolerance.

Deficiency of Vitamin A impairs the repair of mucus membranes increasing the risk and severity of infections. The deficiency of this nutrient also lowers the function of the previously mentioned immune cells decreasing their ability to fight off pathogens and provide protection.

Vitamin A is essential for proper immune function. Deficiency in Vitamin A and or any of the key nutrients will result in lower or compromised immune function and increase the risk of infection.

BMJ Nutrition, Prevention and Health released a study which concludes there is strong evidence that intake of vitamins A, E, and D results in the improvement of respiratory symptoms.

Prevention is always better than the cure.

ZINC

Zinc participates in a variety of functions essential for health at a cellular level. These functions include DNA and protein synthesis, macronutrient metabolism, wound healing, enzyme function, and immune function. This micronutrient is responsible for the growth and maturity of numerous immune cells that protect against infections.

Deficiency of zinc can lead to serious dysfunctions of the immune system because zinc can also act as an antioxidant.

Zinc is essential for the activity of a series of enzymes instrumental to rapid immune response for the clearance of opportunistic pathogens.

Research has proven that zinc accelerates recovery time during the Common Cold (the symptoms) which can be causes by Coronaviruses (the cleaner).

Prevention is always better than the cure.

QUERCETIN

Quercetin is a potent antioxidant with the ability to improve memory and help reduce oxidative stress and inflammation in the body. Quercetin is used to reduce symptoms of allergies, to improve cardiovascular health, to improve blood sugar regulation, reduce inflammation, and some studies suggests its cancer fighting properties.

Quercetin is a zinc ionophore that help both the absorption of zinc into the body as well as the absorption of zinc into cells dependent upon it for enzyme production. Additionally, as a potent antioxidant, Quercetin is an equally potent anti-bacterial and antiviral nutrient that is particularly essential for respiratory and cardiovascular infections.

Although more research is necessary for specific information about Quercetin and SARS-CoV-2, there is strong evidence showing the potential benefits of this nutrient. Quercetin is recommended to be supplemented in combination with Vitamin C for better absorption and improved synergistic function.

Prevention is always better than the cure.

L_ARGININE

L-arginine is an amino acid which helps build protein in the body and it has been studied for its effects enhancing cardiovascular health, its antioxidant properties, and immune boosting benefits.

One of the main arguments for L-arginine’s therapeutic effects focused on its ability to convert to nitric oxide. Nitric oxide is a naturally occurring compound which plays a role in the health of blood vessels improving blood flow. Nitric oxide improves the symptoms of conditions such as asthma and it is used as a medical intervention for acute lung infection.

Nitric oxide is being suggested by researchers as another treatment for SARS-CoV-2 based on previously done studies which reported success in helping during the coronavirus virus epidemic of 2003 (SARS). Researchers also mention the anti-viral effects of nitric oxide could be beneficial in helping treat SARS-CoV-2.

Prevention is always better than the cure.

GLUTATHIONE

Glutathione is a master antioxidant manufactured by the human body. It is essential for the detoxification of toxic chemicals, it helps recycle key nutrients, it protects against free radical damage, and it also participates in supporting immune function.

Deficiencies of glutathione place individuals at risk for bioaccumulation of chemicals, which increases oxidative stress and inflammation while simultaneously lowering immune function.

One precursor that can be taken to boost glutathione levels in the body is N-Acetylcysteine (NAC). NAC, like L-arginine can increase nitric oxide levels improving blood flow. NAC is used to help treat different conditions including respiratory conditions as it helps thin out mucus and it has anti-inflammatory properties.

NAC is currently being explored by and used effectively in the treatment of SARS-CoV-2 although the exact mechanism of action is still being evaluated. Researchers suggest it may significantly improve immune cell function and reduce inflammation which could result in lower hospitalisation and death rates.

Prevention is always better than the cure.

FINAL SUMMARY

Prevention is always better than the cure and it is clear that cellular support is a health topic worth exploring and it starts with your water, vitamin and trace mineral intake and your ability to reduce deficiencies and inflammation. Reduce cellular disruption and make big adjustments to your nutrition, movement and stress levels.

It is no surprise people who lead active lifestyles with reduced cellular disruptors and cumulative toxicity are strong, happier and healthier.
