Your immune system needs support too

It is common knowledge that the immune system protects the human body from the various bacteria, microbes, viruses, toxins, parasites, etc., that are mounting constant attacks against the body.

The immune system has different responses for different kinds of attacks. And it has a built-in flexibility that allows it to shape its responses to these attacks.

The immune support system displays dual characteristics: self or non-self recognition, general or specific, and natural or adaptive, cell-mediated or humoral, active or passive, and primary or secondary. Some parts of the system act against specific antigens. Other parts of the immune system are systemic, working throughout the human body. Still others recognize antigens in order to an attack them more vigorously next time they pose a threat. These parts of the immune system are said to possess a memory.

We are all born with a genetically based natural defense system, that has thrown a protective umbrella on the body. The skin is the most important organ of our natural defense system. Skin secretions contain a type of acid preventing growth of bacteria. Mucus in respiratory and gastrointestinal tracts traps microorganisms. Lysozyme is present in saliva, tears, nasal secretions and perspiration. Mother’s milk contains a powerful enzyme lactoperoxidase, while semen contains spermine and zinc that are capable of destroying some pathogens. The stomach with its protein-digesting enzymes and the mucosa secreting hydrochloric acid kill many pathogens, and even drugs and other chemicals.

The blood and lymph systems are responsible for transporting the various agents of the immune system.

The human lymphoid system consists of primary organs and secondary organs. The primary lymph organs are the bone marrow and the thymus gland. The secondary lymph organs are adenoids, tonsils, spleen and lymph nodes concentrated in the neck, armpits, abdomen and groin.

Keeping such a complex immune system in proper working order, especially with the increasing amounts of toxic pollutants in the environment, is becoming a tough task. More so since the food we eat, that is supposed to fortify the immune system, is actually getting more and more laced with toxins.

Just take a look at some of the things that could go wrong with an immune system that has gone wrong.

A breakdown of the self-non-self recognition process causes the immune system to attack the self-cells. Multiple sclerosis, systemic lupus, types of diabetes and arthritis are all such auto-immune diseases. Allergies are the result of the immune system overreacting to certain stimuli.

Diabetes occurs when the immune system attacks the cells in the pancreas and destroys them. Rheumatoid arthritis is also the result of the immune system causing trouble in the joints.

Recent research is leading scientists to believe that certain carbohydrates represent the next frontier in the search for non-toxic compounds that support the immune system.

Eight of these essential sugars, called glyconutrients, have already been discovered. Only two of these are found in our daily diet though. These eight essential sugars supply the body with glycoforms that are needed for cell-to-cell communication – a fundamental biochemical process that keeps the immune system ticking along. Glyconutrients form the new frontier in medical research; four of the last eight Nobel Prizes in medicine have been awarded for research into Glycobiology.

A steady supply of glyconutrients is necessary for keeping the immune system working well. It has been found that the body recovers and heals faster when glyconutrients are used when administering chemotherapy and radiation.

Trouble is, the same toxins in the environment that weaken our immune system also affect the body’s ability to synthesize these glyconutrients. All the more reason why we should ensure a steady supply of these glyconutrients through glyconutritionals or food supplements containing glyconutrients.

Glyconutrients influence the working of the immune system. They reduce the side effects of radiation and chemotherapy. They also aid in the workings of the brain and nervous system.

The modern industrial environment is getting increasingly hostile to the body’s processes. It is now our responsibility to use our intelligence to counter those ill effects. And research into glyconutrients is the new frontier where human science is taking on the ill effects of human development.
