The Immune System is the body's most important defense mechanism against infections, viruses, microorganisms and diseases. Whether you are in perfect health, fighting an infection or are recovering from a disease or an operation, ensuring that your immune response is strong is top priority.
A depleted immune system presents the ideal opportunity for an unwanted entity to wreak havoc in your body, especially at high-risk times such as during prolonged exposure to stress, when undergoing treatment, or when recovering from a serious medical condition.
Vitamin C is well known as being one of the primary antioxidants in the human body, and is one of the most often supplemented vitamins for a good reason. Its strong antioxidative properties help protect the cells of the immune system from the damaging effects of free radicals and it also regulates the activities of phagocytes, whose primary function is to destroy pathogens.
This protocol also contains a potent mix of amino acids, including arginine supplementation, which works to increase the number of CD4+ T cells that are involved in the development of the innate immune system. Increases in this compound speeds up the body's response to pathogens. In combination with arginine, lysine increases the number of lymphocytes and immunoglobulin, which also enhances and strengthens the process of the immune response.
