BEAT IT WITH BALANCE: Immunomodulators versus Imbalanced Immune Systems
Published: 11:35 AM, September 26, 2023
We’re used to thinking that for our immune system to effectively protect us, it needs to be constantly boosted. And if, up until now, you’ve been religiously taking extra doses of vitamins, supplements, etc. to enhance your immune strength, we’ve got some valuable information for you.
Let us start off with this: did you know that your immune system needs to be balanced in order to be strong? In fact, a number of common sicknesses are actually caused by imbalance in your immune system! To better understand the importance of maintaining a balanced immune system, let’s first discuss the types of an imbalanced immune system, and how they negatively impact your health.
THE OVERREACTIVE IMMUNE SYSTEM
An immune system to goes above and beyond to protect you seems nice, but the reality is quite the opposite. An overreactive immune system causes your body to lose its ability to differentiate between healthy cells and potential threats. This may lead to developing a heightened sensitivity towards substances in the environment that were once harmless, turning them into allergens. You may begin to experience episodes of allergic rhinitis, asthma attacks, and eczema—conditions associated with an overreactive immune system. In worst-case scenarios, an overactive immune system can eventually lead to the development of autoimmune diseases such as Type 1 Diabetes, Lupus, Rheumatoid Arthritis, or Multiple Sclerosis.
THE UNDERREACTIVE IMMUNE SYSTEM
Now you may think okay, I’ll just leave it to do its thing then! Well, we’re here to tell you that that’s not the best approach either.
With an underreactive immune system, or one that’s close to failing, you become susceptible to getting one sickness after another, with insufficient time to recover. Your body will also tend to heal much slower, leaving you to suffer for weeks or even months. A severely underreactive immune system won’t be able to fight off triggers that are normally easy to defeat, resulting in illnesses such as pneumonia, tuberculosis, and herpes simplex.
In order to strengthen your immune system and ensure it functions properly, balance is what it needs. And for that, we’d like to introduce you to immunomodulators! Immunomodulators are a type of medicine or substance that help increase your immune response by either stimulating or suppressing the immune system. They come in various forms: some can be small molecules, while some are sizeable antibodies.
When an immunomodulator stimulates, it helps an underreactive immune system enhance its defenses, enabling it to respond better to an illness or disease such as cancer. When it suppresses, it prevents your body from attacking itself, working against conditions such as autoimmune diseases.
CM-GLUCAN AND IMMUNOMAX
Immunomax contains natural immunomodulator CM-Glucan. It is 100 times more absorbable than the standard Beta Glucan, and it produces more antibodies compared to Vitamin C. As a natural immunomodulator, CM-Glucan helps balance your immune system, and with proper diet and exercise, it also helps keep you away from sicknesses caused by both an overreactive and underreactive immune system.
Immunomax comes in capsule form for adults and syrup form for kids! Both regular and forte variants are safe to be taken daily, but if in doubt, it’s advisable to consult your doctor first.
Kick off your journey towards developing immune strength and maintaining a balance in your immune system with the help of CM-Glucan and Immunomax!
