Boost the Immune System 

A better cellular metabolism ensures longevity. But you have to watch what you eat. All principles of disease prevention point towards proper nutrition composed of a balanced diet. The body is like a puzzle. Many factors can affect the health of our wondrous healing machine — the immune system. Age-related immune system decline is called immune senescence. 

The immune system is the body’s ability to recognise and defend itself against infectious bacteria, organisms, viruses and the development of disease.When toxins are present in our body, blood circulation is blocked, and cellular energy is impaired. The body’s immune system is inhibited, which makes it difficult for the body to fight disease.

Unfortunately, stress can damage the functionality of the immune system, causing a chain reaction that results in sickness. Stress causes 80% of diseases, depression, hormonal imbalance and chronic illness. Afailing immune system creates a state of hyper-inflammation 

By building immunity, you are able to conduct day to day activities without feeling washed out. Lift your capabilities to become limitless. A good immune system is the ‘anti-virus’ defence against any disease. The Sanskrit word for immunity ‘Vyadhikshamatva’ means forgiveness of disease. 

Adopt a Daily Routine

SMART immunity vests needs to be used on a regular basis to see results. By focusing on a routine it can be a particularly potent means of building a healthy immunity. Making even a modest commitment to routine over time, this context of predictability and safety encourages the nervous system to relax, reduces stress, encourages rejuvenation, and helps to preserve immune function.

Employ a multi- pronged approach by establishing a daily routine.

Try to awaken, eat your meals, and go to bed at about the same times each day. If possible, you can also maintain a consistent work or activity schedule. This level of consistency alone can be powerful; adding self-compassion care or mindfulness practices will offer deeper level of support.

By using the vest 30 min a day three times a week you will obtain the best results. 


Detoxing regularly with the SMART Immunity Life Vest especially if you consume lots of unhealthy foods, especially these containing refined sugar, reduce the ability of the cells to cope with the viral infections. Good health is a sign that our immune system works as it should be.

The low level of resistant forces makes us vulnerable to various infections, allergies, tiredness, feeling of lethargy and fatigue, breathing problems, digestive problems, lack of appetite and chronic insomnia.

Organically grown foods are best because not only are they free of harsh chemicals, but they also contain more minerals which enhance the immunity.

Add to your dishes immune stimulating spices for example,  light spices to foods such as boiled vegetables, legumes, whole grain foods, this will increase energy and have healing properties on all cells and tissues of the body. 

The different spices have their own specific immune stimulating properties:

We have added turmeric,to the Ayuvastra specifically for its strong immune stimulating effect and  its ability to remove toxins from the body and it stimulates „the intelligence” of the cells of the immune system. The cumin the black pepper cleanses the body entirely so that it facilitates energy to reach the tissues in depth. Also recommended are the ginger, cardamom, cinnamon, healing herbs in the form of teas and tonics. 

Yes, we have heard many times that we have to increase our intake of raw fruits and vegetables.Immune stimulating foods are also considered to be the apples, because they contain a rich amount of antioxidants, soluble and insoluble fiber, that have cleansing effect on the intestines.

All sweet and juicy fruits such as pears, peaches, plums, pineapple, mangoes. The pomegranate juice, as well the extract of pomegranate seeds, are a powerful immune stimulating agents that build the Akkermansia the gut microbiome which plays an important role in immune function.  Pomegranate ellagitannins stimulate the growth of Akkermansia muciniphila in vivo. Drinking a pomegranate extract  increases presence of Akkermansia. A diet rich in omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids from fish oil, is also shown to increase Akkermansia.

The green leafy vegetables are also recommended for a weak immune system spinach, kale, curly-leaf cabbage. When stewed and spiced with immune stimulating spices, they become a powerful immune stimulant. They provide the organism with calcium, iron and other valuable nutrients that have a cleansing effect on the bowels. Broccoli, cabbage and the cauliflower contain a lot of antioxidants, flavonoids that also stimulate the immunity.

Legumes are a valuable source of proteins and they are light and healthy food for the organism, that gives us a sense of content and this foods could be consumed every day.

When we avoid semi-manufactured foods (vacuumed, frozen, preserved foods), containing preservatives and enhancers, we increase in a natural way our vital energy. The locally grown seasonal fruits and vegetables are also recommended, because they dont contain harmful pesticides and do contain a lot of minerals.

The wholegrain foods such as quinoa, amaranth, flax seeds also have a positive effect on the weak immune system, because of the content of fiber and valuable nutrients, that clean the whole organism from the toxic substances.

It is desirable to eat slowly, to chew the food well, so that we can maximaze the process of digestion as well the absorption of the nutrients.

Avoid simple sugars in any form. The proper function of the stomach is one of the signs of a stable immune system. When our digestion system works properly, we are immune to diseases.

Essential oils

Sweet orange, rosemary, clove, cinnamon and eucalyptus possess immune building and antibacterial properties. 

 

Keep the Immune System in Proper Balance by Eating the Right Foods.

Vitamin C has been shown to increase both the amount and activity level of leukocytes (our white blood cells), most notably neutrophils, lymphocytes, and phagocytes. Through high dose vitamin C and other immune boosting products such as Echinacea, Acerola Berry, Royal Jelly, Shiitake, Propolis, Copper and Goji Berry etc 

Antioxidants Reduce Oxidative Stress: Natural red and near infrared light helps promote antioxidant production, which plays a central role in reducing the oxidative stress associated with cell injury and things like muscle fatigue and joint pain & inflammation. Antioxidants also increase the production of heat proteins—special enzymes that help protect cells from stress and early death. 

Increased Circulation: Studies have also identified an increase in circulation following red light therapy, indicating tissues are receiving more oxygen and other nutrients important for healing—while also ridding themselves of toxic byproducts.

To help keep your immune system strong, doctors recommend taking elderberry along with vitamin C, B6, and E.

Low-salt diets may not be beneficial for all, study suggests. Salt reduction only important in some people with high blood pressure

A large worldwide study has found that, contrary to popular thought, low-salt diets may not be beneficial and may actually increase the risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD) and death compared to average salt consumption. The study suggests that the only people who need to worry about reducing sodium in their diet are those with hypertension (high blood pressure) and have high salt consumption. It is important to use sea salt or a good mineral pink salt. 

Health benefits of tea
The possible beneficial health effects of tea consumption have been suggested and supported by some studies. 

Studies claim that the polyphenol content of green tea has antioxidant properties that can help prevent cancer, however research is ongoing.

There is also a suggestion that it can increase endurance in exercise by improving fat metabolism.

The evidence is stacking up in favor of that morning cup. A study published in the journal of Internal Medicine found that people who drank one cup of coffee daily were 12 percent less likely than non–coffee drinkers to die from cancer, stroke, and diabetes, or heart, kidney, or respiratory disease. And the benefits increased with the amount they drank: Those who downed three cups of java a day were 18 percent less likely to die from those diseases.

Another study examined 520,000 people in 10 European countries over a 16-year period, and found that coffee consumption lowered the risk for mortality, especially from digestive and circulatory diseases. This effect was consistent in every country.

As winter arrives, you should start including herbal immune boosters to your daily diet which can help you get a boost. There are many factors which can harm the ability of your body to fight invaders. Factors like poor diet, inadequate sleep, less exercise too much stress and much more. You should start including herbal immune boosters to your daily diet which can help you get a boost. Here are few very powerful herbs and foods that strengthen your immune system.

Ashwagandha

It is the most important herb that is beneficial for treating different health conditions. Ayurveda praises ashwagandha for its longevity and vitality tonic. Ashwagandha is widely recognized for its benefits, and one such benefit is that it modulates and boosts the immune system. It increases the number of pathogen-fighting agents and reverses the ill effects of anticancer drugs on the immune system.

Garlic

Garlic with its antiseptic, anti-fungal, and nutritive properties it is used as an immune system booster for thousands of years by Ayurveda. It is a powerful natural antioxidant, which protects the body from bacterial and viral infections, without causing any side-effects. Garlic acts as a natural anti-bacterial agent when it’s fresh and raw as it contains allicin that kills the viruses and bacteria. It is a good medicine against coughs, colds and chest infections during the winter.

Ginger

REISHI MUSHROOM 

Ganoderma Lucidum (Red Reishi) :

Ganoderma lucidum (Reishi or Ling-zhi), a popular medicinal mushroom, is regarded by the Chinese as “mushroom of immortality”

Reishi boosts the function of both the innate and adaptive immune system. The innate immune system is your body's first line of defence, responding rapidly to harmful threats such as viruses, bacteria, and cancer cells. Natural killer cells are an important component of this innate immunity. 

Reishi mushroom contains complex sugars known as beta-glucans. Lab studies suggest that these compounds may help stop the growth of abnormal cells. When animals were fed beta-glucans, some cells of their immune system became more active.
In addition, reishi mushrooms were shown to have immunomodulatory renoprotective. 

This mushroom is high in polysaccharides which is exactly what your gut bacteria like to eat.Reishi mushroom is a fungus that holds an important place in the traditional medical systems of China, Japan, Korea and other Asian countries for its health-promoting effects. It is used as an immunostimulant by patients with HIV and cancer. The active constituents include both beta-glucans polysaccharides and triterpenes.

Β-D-glucan polysaccharides stimulate or modulate the immune system by activation of macrophages and helper T-cells, as well as increase the immunoglobin levels to produce a heightened response to foreign cells. 

Reishi mushroom has antioxidant properties and may enhance immune response and reduces the side effects from chemotherapy and radiation treatments. It has many cancer fighting properties and aids in recovery. Reishi is particularly effective for treatment of colon, breasts and prostate cancer. It strengthens T-cell and macrophage function (both are types of white blood cell).

It is believed that regular consumption of Ganoderma lucidum in the form of tea or mushroom powder can preserve the human vitality and promote longevity. Scientific investigations have been conducted to show its anti-cancer, hypoglycaemic and immune-modulating effects. Its bioactive components comprise of triterpenes, polysaccharides and immune-modulatory proteins.

Pharmacological functions:

Anti-cancer function

Anti-tumour activities are mediated through stimulation of spleen-cell proliferation and expression of cytokines such as interleukins Iand IIand IFN γ. 2

Hypoglycaemic function

Possible mechanism may be due to stimulation of insulin release from the islets directly, through facilitation of Ca2+ inflow to the pancreatic cells.

Immune-Potentiation

Enhanced innate immunity by promoting function of macrophages, B and T lymphocytes, and dendritic cells.

Enoki Mushroom

Also known as golden needle mushrooms, seafood mushrooms, winter mushrooms and lily mushrooms, among other names, fresh enoki mushrooms are most often used in soups. However, they can be featured in other dishes, in salads, or eaten as a snack.

The cultivated mushrooms are white and are the most common, though you may also find wild enoki mushrooms, which are dark brown or golden in color.

Atractylodes increases white blood cells.

Adaptogenic means, if you are too high it brings you down and if you are too low it brings you up. Astragalus is also immunomodulating (more adaptogenic goodness), anti-inflammatory, anti-viral, and hepatoprotective. For cancer treatment, Astragalus increases immune responses while increasing T-cell counts, increasing cytotoxicity of NK cells and T-cells and switching on the anti-tumor activity of Interleukin-2.

Astragalus helps protect against oxidative damage in the body by increasing mitochondrial function. Astragalus helps heal an ailing liver as it increases repairs to even recover from chronic hepatitis. Want a longer, healthier life? Astragalus also lengthens telomeres for longevity. Astragalus is an antiviral that can both treat and prevent recurrence of chronic colds, flu, Epstein Barr Virus, HIV, MERS, SARS and even shingles. Did I ever mention that it helps the symptoms of menopause?

Curcuma belongs to the ginger family and has its origin in Southeast Asia ─ the main ingredient is cur-cumin. It has been worshipped in India for more than 5000 years as a medical plant and it is used in the Ayurvedic medicine against numerous diseases. Scientific studies have confirmed the positive effects of curcuma, thus it becomes more and more popular in the West as well.

Siberian ginseng shown in vitro to have anti tumour effects against many types of cancer including breast, stomach and ovarian.

Panax Ginseng may prevent cancer by acting as an anti-inflammatory. It has also been shown to suppress the growth of new blood vessels required to feed cancerous tumours. Asian Ginseng also support the immune system and prevent low white blood cell counts caused by radiation therapy of chemotherapy.

American ginseng in studies was found to inhibit cancers of the lungs, liver, stomach pancreas and ovaries.

Ligustrum (Nu Zhen Zi) is used in cases of rapid deterioration of the body.

Rhodiola has many powerful broad reaching effects and is one of the most highly used adaptogenic in Fu Zheng clinical protocol for treating cancer. It has been shown in Russian clinical studies to inhibit tumour growth and decrease metastasis (the spreading of cancer).

Cistanche Extract
Cistanche is a type of desert plant that, like Reishi mushrooms, has long been used in Eastern medicine. Several modern studies have confirmed the ability of Cistanche extract to boost immune cells in the body.


WOOD VINEGAR

Wood vinegar, or pyroligneous acid, is the fluid or sap derived from tree cells, which exhibits exceptional permeability and sterilising properties. During experiments, it was confirmed that the great drawing power of the wood vinegar makes it the powerful choice to be used in physiotherapy, for minor pain relief and to decrease swelling in the body.

EUCALYPTUS

CHITOSAN

Chitosan is derived from chitin, the main fibre component of crustacean shells. It has powerful unique absorption abilities; which aids in isolating fatty tissue and dispelling it out of the body.

Propolis

origin: early 17th century: via Latin from Greek propolis 'suburb', also 'bee glue', from pro 'before' + polis 'city'

Propolis is the resin collected by bees from the buds of plants and trees. The resin is taken back to the hive where its properties are elevated by adding wax and other bee secretions. The bees use Propolis to guard against external foreigners such as mice & moths as well as using it to fight micro biological threats.

Propolis biological properties, mainly with respect to the immune system has been used empirically for centuries and it was always mentioned as an immunomodulatory agent. In recent years, in vitro and in vivo assays provided new information concerning its mechanisms of action, thus a review dealing with propolis and the immune system immunomodulatory and anti-tumor properties, considering its effects on antibody production and on different cells of the immune system, involving the innate and adaptive immune response. 

Glutathione

A Tripeptide
A peptide is a naturally occurring protein. Glutathione is a very small tripeptide composed of three amino acids: glycine, glutamine and cysteine. It is made in every cell in the body.

The diagram shows a GSH molecule; the yellow sphere represents a sulfur atom which explains why GSH has a distinct aroma. It may smell a little like rotten eggs, but sulfur plays a major role in glutathione’s antioxidant and detoxification functions.

Enhances immune function. For immune cells to be healthy and active they need GSH

Taken for treating cataracts and glaucoma, preventing ageing, treating or preventing alcoholism, asthma, cancer, heart disease (atherosclerosis and high cholesterol), hepatitis, liver disease, diseases that weaken the body's defence system (including AIDS and chronic fatigue syndrome) and memory. 

Neutralize/remove toxins
It binds with pollutants and toxins that can then be excreted through urine or bile.

Protect cells against free radicals, viruses, bacteria.It is capable of preventing damage to important cellular components caused by reactive oxygen species such as free radicals, peroxides, and heavy metals.

In Food
Diet help boost GSH levels found in almost all fruits and vegetables: watermelon, asparagus, garlic, onions, cauliflower, spinach, broccoli and other members of the cabbage family.

Avocados are especially high in glutathione; one 3.5-ounce serving contains approximately 31 milligrams. In comparison, one teaspoon of Liposomal Glutathione contains more than 400 milligrams.

A Great Detoxifier
The liver harbors the most concentrated source of glutathione because it is the organ of detoxification.

Beets a Power Food for Your Health

Beets are a power-packed root vegetable. They contain high levels of folate, vitamin C and well as manganese and potassium. This root is also low in calories, high in water and fiber content. While beets offer great benefits, the leaves contain significantly higher levels of vitamins and minerals than their root counterpart. Beet greens are especially high in potassium and A, C and K.

Beets are not only delicious, but they are also good for your brain, heart, blood pressure, athletic performance and more. 

Liver Detoxification-The betaines in beets do more than just help with blood flow, they help the liver detox and also have the ability to reverse a fatty liver. This particular study was done in rats, but including beats as part of a healthy diet poses little to no risk.

Brain Health- beets have naturally occurring nitrates which convert to nitric oxide. As previously mentioned Nitric oxide helps to dilate and relax blood vessels which actually improves your blood flow which may also improve blood flow to the brain.

Inflammation Fighter– Betalains a pigment in beets has anti-inflammatory properties.

Betalain reduced pain and discomfort and improved joint function in osteoarthritis. 

Digestive Health-Beets are a great source of fiber, which is an essential part of a healthy diet. Consuming healthy amounts of fiber is linked to a reduced risk of many diseases such as diabetes, colon cancer, and heart disease.

Cancer Fighter-This study performed on human cells discovered that the extract of beetroot reduced the growth of both breast and prostate cancer cells. So while the testing was not done on actual patients, it warrants additional research.
