Immune Support, Inflammation & Immunomodulation
What is the role of the immune system?
The role of the immune system is to fight every kind of insult to the body, from injury right through to infection.
It is therefore of utmost importance to support the body’s immune system to keep it functioning optimally.
It is estimated that healthy adults in our society have an average of two colds a year, especially during winter. People, who have significantly more colds and infectious illnesses than the above mentioned, are likely to have some issue with their immune function.
What is the impact of inflammation on the immune system?
Controlled inflammation for short periods of time (acute) may actually assist to kick-start the healing process of the body.
It is however chronic (ongoing) and uncontrolled inflammation that is problematic.
Professor Patrick Bouic, chief technical officer at a biotechnology company and professor at the University of Stellenbosch, said the following: “Sickness and disease usually have a chronic inflammatory component.”
In light of the above, a big component of keeping the immune system healthy is keeping the body in an anti-inflammatory state.
What is the new buzz word “immunomodulation” all about?
Immunomodulation is the appropriate adjustment of the body’s immune system and immune response in order to create a bodily state of homeostasis, and thereby wellbeing.
Immunomodulation, as part of immunotherapy, is therefore an approach whereby immune responses are induced, amplified, attenuated, or prevented according to the therapeutic goal required.
What is the role of Silverlab in immunomodulation, inflammation and boosting the immune system?
Ionic Colloidal Silver is a powerful natural antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory agent that may assist with combatting both chronic inflammation and infection. It helps to rapidly destroy harmful germs (pathogens) such as bacteria, viruses and fungi. It is also well worth mentioning that the favourable safety profile of ionic Colloidal Silver is well documented. The colloidal silver ions reach germs (which cause diseases and infections) throughout the body and destroy them on contact.
Professor Patrick Bouic further concluded that, taken as a daily tonic, ionic Colloidal Silver most likely helps to normalise the body at a cellular level, allowing the immune system to operate more efficiently, thus helping the body to help itself. This brings us back to immunomodulation and homeostasis.
Last but not least, the anti-inflammatory properties of ionic Colloidal Silver support the immune system by keeping the body in an optimal-functioning anti-inflammatory state.
Silverlab’s Daily Immune Booster & Anti-Microbial Liquid may therefore be the ideal agent to fulfil the crucial triple role of being an antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory and immunomodulating agent, all in one.
What are the directions for use of this Silverlab Daily Liquid for boosting the immune system and combatting inflammation?
For Adults, as a general daily tonic, take 10 ml to 20 ml Silverlab Liquid once or twice daily before meals and undiluted. Swish around in the mouth for 2 minutes before swallowing.
For children, we recommend a quarter to a half of the adult dose.
In addition, the Silverlab Hand, Face & Mask Sanitiser Spray, as well as the Silverlab Nasal Spray can be used for additional barrier protection.
Any Additional Immune Boosting Tips?
Two of the most common immune suppressors include stress and an incorrect diet, especially a diet high in fat and refined processed foods. Supply your immune system with adequate amounts of nutrients and learn to manage stress well.
