Your immune system works 24 hours, 7 days a week, protecting you from infection and disease. It’s your personal army of soldiers defending your body. However, it has to cope with modern-day stressors which interfere with its ability to do its job.
We call these stressors the PITSS!
Poor nutrition, Infections, Toxins, Sleep deprivation, Stress.
Your immune system army needs all the daily support it can get and here’s why…
1. Poor nutrition
Progress has brought more convenient, processed foods to our tables. When we eat fewer whole foods, we take in fewer nutrients. Our modern food supply also contains antibiotics, pesticides, artificial ingredients, preservatives, colouring agents. The daily consumption of fewer nutrient-dense food and more synthetic chemicals in our diet impacts your immune system’s ability to protect you.
If you’ve had frequent infections in the past, your immune system has been compromised. You may feel well now, but your immune response to infection needs ongoing support to rebuild to an optimum state. The aim is to prepare your immune system army so it stands ever-ready to effectively defend you when there is another outbreak of infections.
We really can’t totally avoid toxins. They are everywhere - in the air we breathe and our food and water supply. Skincare products and household cleaning agents also contain chemicals which depress your immune system. While you can try your best to minimise exposure to these toxins, it’s impossible to completely escape them. That’s why your army of immune soldiers needs all the help they can get.
4. Sleep deprivation
Professor Matt Walker, a sleep scientist states that “just one night of only 4 or 5 hours’ sleep and your NK cells – the ones that attack the cancer cells that appear in your body every day – drop by 70%, and that a lack of sleep is linked to cancer of the bowel, prostate and breast”. We should be getting at least 8 hours of good quality sleep every night. People who don't get quality sleep or enough sleep are more likely to get sick after being exposed to a virus, such as a common cold virus. Sleep is incredibly important to keep your immunity strong. If you’re deprived of enough good quality sleep, you definitely need to immediately make sleep a priority to support your immune system daily.
For some, experiencing daily chronic stress is the norm. Feeling pulled at both ends, a stressful job or juggling parenting and the household. There are also periods in your life when stress levels are at an all-time high. These are when your immune system's ability to fight off illness is reduced. The stress hormone, cortisol, can suppress the effectiveness of your immune system and so it needs extra help. This is why you need a greater serving size than the regular maintenance serving of Santivia immune.
All these stressors deplete the important cell communication molecules which transfer messages to your immune system soldiers so that they know what they must do and they carry out the appropriate action.
Besides protecting you from outside invaders and infection, your immune system’s NK Cells, as we mentioned above, also recognise tumour and microscopic cancer cells. A competent immune system can deal with them, stopping them from becoming full-blown cancer. People with chronic disease such as cancer, have low immunity as measured by the quantity and activity of NK cells within their immune system.
This is the reason your taking PREVENTATIVE action is very important to your health and well-being.
Santivia Immune was designed to safely support your immune system daily by replenishing the relevant communication molecules that have been lost and are continually being lost due to PITSS. It also increases NK cells multi-fold times. The full benefits of its immune-supporting capability are seen with continued use in most people, so occasional use is not optimum.
Consistent daily support is the best thing you can do for your personal 24/7 defence army.
Do the best for yourself every day, so that you’ll be able to thrive and enjoy each day of your life with energy and vitality.
