Immune Support Information & Research

1.
How do you check your immune system?

Blood tests are available that can measure immune system markers. Other blood tests can measure such factors as levels of different types of white blood cells known as T lymphocytes or autoimmune responses.

2.
How can I boost my immune system?

Healthy immune function depends on several critical factors. It is important to manage stress and get a full night’s sleep. Eating a diet that includes plenty of fruits and veggies, including mushrooms, garlic and onions, and skipping out on sugar is a good idea. In addition, supplementing with vitamins D and C, zinc and beta-carotene can help give the immune system the nutrients it needs to do its job. Reishi mushroom, beta-glucan or the herb andrographis can also provide support.

3.
How does the immune system change in adults?

Over time, individuals become less able to respond to age-related environmental changes. This immune senescence correlates with a decrease in naive T-cells, which respond to new invaders, and an increase in T-memory cells, which hold the memory of previously encountered invaders. Many individuals proactively support naive T-cell and memory T-cell immune balance by using botanicals cistanche and Reishi mushroom.
