Immune System Health

Did you catch our Be Immune post last month?  Today, I’m following up on those thoughts to introduce another exciting new essential oil blend!

Immuni-T was designed to soothe the respiratory system and to support the body when it’s under attack from the common onslaught of germs.

Here are just a few of the essential oils in this blend.  (You can read a full list of ingredients by clicking on any Immuni-T link in this post.)

Tangerine Essential Oil (Citrus reticulata Blanco) – Has properties that assist the body in stimulating the lymphatic and immune systems; and it smells good!Immuni-T

The Invisible Universe

“The next time you look in a mirror, think about this: In many ways you’re more microbe than human. There are 10 times more cells from microorganisms like bacteria and fungi in and on our bodies than there are human cells.

“Scientists increasingly think that these microorganisms have a huge influence on our health. Without them, our bodies don’t seem to do as well. We don’t seem to be as healthy and might actually get sick more often.”

Be Immune!

It’s been a strange winter here in the South.  One Saturday, it was 30-something with snow flurries.  The very next weekend, it was 65 degrees and sunny.

This winter has brought us some unusual weather, but it has also brought the typical colds, fever viruses, stomach viruses, and flu.

We’re all doing our best to dress for the weather (no need to put away the summer clothes this year) and to avoid the germs that we know are literally everywhere.

One of the best things we can do is to boost our immune systems.  Eating nutritious meals and getting plenty of exercise and rest will help.  But sometimes we need supplements to give us the extra boost we need.

Beeyoutiful has three products you might want to consider adding to your winter regimen:  Ultra Immune, Bee Immune, and Colostrum Transfer Factor.

Ultra Immune – Ultra Immune contains allicin, specifically AlliSure®.  AlliSure® is Ultra Immuneproduced through a patented process which formulates allicin liquid from raw garlic.  The liquid is spray-dried to produce allicin powder.  Research has shown that allicin can help to lower bad cholesterol and blood pressure and to prevent colds, strep and flu.  Ultra Immune also contains black elderberry extract which, according to studies, has helped flu patients recover in 3.1 days, compared to the average 7.1.  Olive leaf extract is added for its reputation in fighting the common cold, cold sores, impetigo and infections.  Rosemary essential oil serves as an antiseptic and helps regulate blood sugar and blood pressure, and oregano essential oil helps the body destroy even antibiotic-resistant strains of bacteria.Bee Immune (web)

Bee Immune – Two capsules of Bee Immune provide the equivalent of 1500 mg of bee propolis.  Propolis, made by bees from the highly antiseptic resins found in most tree buds, is reported to build immunity, to work against non-native yeast in the gastrointestinal tract and to inhibit the growth of many infectious diseases.

Colostrum Transfer Factor – Colostrum is the nutrient-rich, pre-milk fluid produceColostrum (web)d by all mammals during the first few days after giving birth.  It has an extremely high concentration of immunoglobulins (uniquely structured proteins that naturally contribute to healthy immune function).  Colostrum has been shown to increase overall immunity, expedite the body’s natural process of wound healing and assist in the maintenance of healthy bacterial response, in adults as well as children.
Tummy Tuneup
And, since a good bit of the immune system resides in the intestinal tract, supplementing with a high-quality probiotic is also a good idea.  Our family’s favorite is Tummy Tuneup.  Tummy Tuneup contains eight different species of good bacteria (including lactobacillus acidophilus) and is designed to support gastrointestinal health and immune system function.
