Your Complex Immune System
Every day, humans are exposed to a myriad of harmful organisms and environmental toxins. The bodily system responsible for defending you against these invaders is your Immune System. The most complex of all bodily systems, immunity comes from several different organs and cells, each with its own special function, working co-operatively to protect you.
Infection and disease can occur in the body for many different reasons, such as the virulence of the invading organism - its power to overcome the body’s defences, the dose or number of pathogens that enter the body at one time, the portal of entry for the pathogens and the individual’s predisposition to infection. This last point is of extreme interest because there are several factors that can be positively impacted to enhance one’s immunity and improve your individual odds of overcoming infection rather than succumbing to it.
Protect Yourself and Stay Healthy
The immune system faces constant and relentless attack, and its ability to provide an adequate defence is reliant on every aspect of the system, including the thymus, thyroid, spleen, bone marrow, adrenal glands, lymphatic vessels, lymph nodes, and specialized white blood cells such as B cells, T cells, macrophage “scavenger” cells, and antibodies. When the goal is to restore and fortify immune function, no single magic bullet approach will achieve optimal results. “The immune system is truly holistic, as evidenced by the close association of psychological, neurological, nutritional, environmental and endocrinologic factors with immune function.” (1)
What factors contribute to strong immunity?
The Effects of Stress. Healthy lifestyle choices can have a profound impact on the immune system, particularly natural killer cells, those responsible for killing off cancerous or infected cells. Experiencing stressful feelings encourages the release of the stress hormones adrenaline and corticosteroids. These hormones negatively impact the immune system by inhibiting the formation and function of white blood cells and causing the thymus gland to shrink. The greater the stress, the greater the immune suppression. (2)
In addition, stressful feelings and stress hormones often rob us of essential sleep, needed to keep our immune systems strong and able to fight. Sleeping soundly for a minimum of 7 hours per night encourages the body’s “parasympathetic nervous system” to take control, the “gear” in which the immune system functions best. During restful sleep, potent immune-enhancing compounds are released, and many immune functions are increased. (3)
Managing stress and reducing stress hormones is a key factor in immune function.
Raw Materials Needed to Build. Your body is the house you live in, so you must provide it with the raw materials needed to constantly rebuild and repair immune cells, tissues and organs. “Nutrient deficiency is, without question, the most frequent cause of a depressed immune system.” (4) In fact, even marginal deficiency of one or multiple nutrients can significantly impair immune function. Medicinal mushrooms have been used for centuries in Eastern medicine to provide the body with building blocks that can be used in a variety of ways. These “on-demand” resources provide literally hundreds of active biomolecules – raw materials the body can use throughout the immune system to fortify itself against invaders.
What Makes Zwell Immunz Effective?
Zwell Immunz is a unique, 100% drug-free natural health product that contains Sensoril™ (Ashwagandha), which is clinically proven to reduce the negative impacts of stress by reducing cortisol levels, and is a potent source of Reishi (Lingzhi) medicinal mushrooms, containing a standardized extract, made using only the most biologically active part of the mushroom.
Lingzhi. Lingzhi mushroom (Ganoderma lucidum) is one of the greatest tonic herbs known to mankind. Lingzhi has been consumed since the dawn of Chinese civilization as an anti-aging herb, and for its various health-promoting and healing properties. It possesses over 400 active biomolecules. Lingzhi is a superior herb that may be taken for a long duration without side effects. Continuous consumption of lingzhi helps to improve functioning of the whole body, up-regulating the immune system, meaning the body is supported in doing the best job of protecting you against foreign invaders without artificially over-stimulating or exhausting your system.
Lingzhi has been used in traditional Chinese medicine for more than 4,000 years to treat liver disorders, hypertension, arthritis and other ailments. In modern times, the available data from human trials, together with evidence from animal studies, suggest that Ganoderma lucidum (Lingzhi) may have some positive benefits for cancer patients, as well as patients with liver disease. Other promising uses include diabetes, heart disease, pain and hypertension. (5)
Ashwagandha. The reports of Ashwagandha benefits date back some 3,000 years. Also called Indian Winter Cherryor Indian Ginseng, Ashwagandha is a shrub that is native to India and has been used for thousands of years in Ayurvedic medicine to treat inflammation, fevers, protect against infection or illness, boost the immune system, improve memory, and promote overall wellness.
Sensoril ™ is a patented, proprietary extract of Ashwagandha that has been found in clinical trials to reduce the negative impact of stress on the immune system by lowering cortisol levels, even in chronically stressed and anxious individuals. (6) Zwell has exclusive access to Sensoril for use in the new Immunz product. Immunz is not available in stores, and the Sensoril ingredient is not available in any other product available online.
