The human body has a natural ability to resist almost all types of organisms or toxins that invaded the body which may cause damage to the body tissues and organs. This ability is called immunity. Superlife Immune Care help to boost the power of immune system.
- Phagocytosis of bacteria and other invaders by white blood cells and cells of the tissue macrophage system.
- Destruction of swallowed organisms by the acid secretions of the stomach and the digestive enzymes.
- Resistance of the skin to invasion by organisms.
- Presence in the blood of certain chemicals and cells that attach to foreign organisms or toxins and destroy them. Some of these are
(1) lysozyme, a mucolytic polysaccharide that attacks bacteria and causes them to dissolute;
(2) basic polypeptides, which react with and inactivate certain types of gram-positive bacteria;
(3) the complement complex that will be described later, is a system of about 20 proteins that can be activated in various ways to destroy bacteria; and
(4) natural killer lymphocytes that can detect and destroy foreign cells, tumor cells, and even some infected cells.
This innate immunity makes the human body resistant to such diseases as some paralytic viral infections of animals, hog cholera, cattle plague, and distemper—a viral disease that kills a large percentage of dogs that become afflicted with it. Conversely, many animals are resistant or even immune to many human diseases, such as poliomyelitis, mumps, human cholera, measles, and syphilis, which are very damaging or even lethal to human beings.
In addition to its natural biological innate immunity, the human body has the ability to develop extremely powerful specific immunity against individual invading agents such as lethal bacteria, viruses, toxins, and even foreign tissues from other animals. This ability is called acquired or adaptive immunity. Acquired immunity is developed by a special immune system that forms antibodies and/or activated lymphocytes that attack and destroy the specific invading organism or toxin.
Acquired immunity usually is able to give a powerful degree of protection to the body. For instance, certain toxins, such as the paralytic botulinum toxin or the tetanizing toxin of tetanus, can be protected against in doses as high as 100,000 times the amount that would be lethal without immunity. It is for this reason that the treatment process known as immunization is so important in protecting human beings against diseases and toxins.
TYPES OF ACQUIRED IMMUNITY—HUMORAL AND CELL MEDIATED
Human body produces two types of acquired immunity, namely Humoral immunity or B-cell immunity(because B lymphocytes produce the antibodies)and Cell mediated immunity or T-cell immunity(because the activated lymphocytes are T lymphocytes).In the first type, the body develops circulating antibodies, which are globulin molecules in the blood plasma capable of attacking the invading agent. In the second type, acquired immunity is achieved through formation of large numbers of activated T lymphocytes that are specifically crafted in the lymph nodes to destroy any foreign agent. We shall see shortly that both the antibodies and the activated lymphocytes are formed in the lymphoid tissues of the body.
BOTH TYPES OF ACQUIRED IMMUNITY ARE INITIATED BY ANTIGENS
Since acquired immunities do not develop until after invasion of a foreign organism or toxin, it is clear that the body must have some mechanism for recognizing this invasion. Each toxin or each type of organism almost always contains one or more specific chemical compounds in its makeup that are different from all other compounds. In general, these are proteins or large polysaccharides, and it is they that initiate the acquired immunity. These substances are called antigens (antibody generations).
For a substance to be antigenic, it normally must have a high molecular weight of 8000 or greater. Furthermore, the process of antigenicity usually depends on regularly recurring molecular groups, called epitopes, on the surface of the large molecule. This factor also explains why proteins and large polysaccharides are almost always antigenic, since both of these substances have this stereo-chemical characteristic.
LYMPHOCYTES ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR ACQUIRED IMMUNITY
Acquired immunity is the product of the body’s lymphocytes. In instances where people have a genetic lack of lymphocytes or whose lymphocytes have been destroyed by radiation or chemicals, no acquired immunity can develop.
Babies born with this malady will die within days after birth, due to fulminating bacterial infection unless they are treated by heroic measures. Therefore, it is clear that the lymphocytes are essential to the survival of the human beings.
The lymphocytes are located most extensively in the lymph nodes, but they are also found in special lymphoid tissues such as the spleen, sub-mucosal areas of the gastrointestinal tract, thymus, and bone marrow. The lymphoid tissue is distributed advantageously in the body to intercept invading organisms or toxins before they can spread too widely.
The lymphoid tissue of the throat and pharynx (the tonsils and adenoids) is well located to intercept antigens that enter by way of the upper respiratory tract.
ALLERGIES AND HYPERSENSITIVITY
At this point, it is pertinent to highlight the adverse side effect of immunity; that is the development, under some conditions, of allergy or other types of immune hypersensitivity. There are several types of allergies and other hypersensitivities, some of which occur only in people who have specific allergic tendencies.
Delayed-reaction allergy is caused by activated T cells and not by antibodies. In the case of poison ivy, the toxin of poison ivy in itself does not cause much harm to the tissues. However, upon repeated exposure, it does cause the formation of activated helper and cytotoxic T cells.
Some people have an allergic tendency.Their allergies are called atopic allergies because they are caused by a non-ordinary response of the immune system. The allergic tendency is genetically passed from parent to child and is characterized by the presence of large quantities of IgE antibodies in the blood. These antibodies are called reagins or sensitizing antibodies to distinguish them from the more common IgG antibodies.
BOOSTING THE IMMUNE SYSTEM WITH Superlife Immune Care
Having established how important the function of immune system is to the wellbeing of our health, therefore boosting our immune system is a priority we must undertake seriously. The immune system does a remarkable job of defending us against pathogens and other micro-organisms that causes diseases.
However, sometimes when the immune system is weak, it fails to do its job properly: when this happens, invasion of even the smallest and weakest germ will trigger an illness. Is it possible to intervene in this process and help boost the immune system? Yes it is! There are many ways of doing this.
Following general good health guidelines is the single best step you can take toward naturally keeping your immune system strong and healthy. Every part of your body, including your immune system, functions better when protected from environmental assaults and bolstered by healthy-living strategies such as these:
- Not smoking
- Eating a diet rich in vegetables and fruits
- Regular exercise
- Maintaining a healthy weight
- Moderating your alcohol intake
- Getting adequate sleep
- Taking steps to avoid infection such as frequently washing your hands and cooking your meats properly before consumption.
According to the Harvard University website
“Many products on store shelves claim to boost or support immunity. But the concept of boosting immunity actually makes little sense scientifically. In fact, boosting the number of cells in your body – immune cells or others is not necessarily a good thing. For instance, athletes who engage in “blood doping” – pumping blood into their systems to boost the number of blood cells and enhance their performance – run the risk of strokes.
Attempting to boost the cells of your immune system is especially complicated because there are many different kinds of cells in the immune system that respond to so many different microbes in a variety of ways. Which cells should you boost? And to what number? This is where SuperLife Immune Care comes into play.

The anti-inflammatory properties of moringa reduces edema and swelling of legs. It also contains many detoxifying elements that prevent liver damage caused by toxins and alcohol.
Moringa extracts reduces oxidative stress, thereby prevent development of cancer. It also contains niazimicin, which restrict the process of carcinogenesis.
Moringa helps to reduce the glucose in the blood and is very helpful for chronic diabetic patients. According to one research including 30 participants, intake of 7 grams of moringa leaf powder each day for three months decreases fasting blood sugar levels by 13.5%.
Moringa extract contains vast number of antioxidants that are helpful in detoxifying kidneys and reducing the incidence of kidney stones. It is also beneficial in lowering cholesterol in the blood.
Chlorophyll is a green pigment that is used by the plants to absorb light from the sun. As an essential part of SIC, it possesses lot of vitamins, antioxidants and minerals which are extremely helpful in keeping a person healthy. Chlorophyll possesses anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties. Chlorophyll has been used in treatment of mild to moderate acne. Liquid chlorophyll can cause increased production of red blood cells. It is particularly helpful for the patients of thalassemia. One study revealed that intake of wheatgrass (which contains about 70 percent chlorophyll) by the patients of thalassemia resulted in decreased need for repeated transfusion.
Chlorophyll can also decrease the incidence of hepatic and stomach. It can also contribute in losing body weight. Research suggest that this beneficial effect is due to its cholesterol lowering properties.
Coenzyme Q10 is a special compound that helps produce energy in cells of the body. It can be naturally produced by the body but its production decreases with age. But, SIC proves to be a great supplement of this important compound with great benefits. CoQ10 is helpful in maintenance of cardiovascular health. Certain heart disorders such as congestive heart failure in elder patients can be prevented by CoQ10. CoQ10 produces lot of antioxidants which protect the skin from pollution, UV rays and certain allergens. It can also prevent from skin cancer.
According to American Academy of Neurology, CoQ10 can prevent migraine. CoQ10 keeps the mitochondria in the cell healthy, thereby providing enough energy to cells. Research suggests that CoQ10 can also reduce muscle weakness caused by statins.
CoQ10 has been found beneficial in diabetic patients as well. CoQ10 enhances insulin sensitivity and control blood sugar levels. Study was done on type 2 diabetic patients who took supplements with CoQ10 for 12 weeks. Blood glucose levels and Hb1AC were both reduce significantly. It is also said that CoQ10 cures diabetes by reducing obesity as it also helps in breaking down excessive fats in the body.
Guarana is a Brazilian plant with a scientific name Paullinia cupana. It contains caffeine, theophylline and theobromine which are considered as powerful stimulants. Guarana possesses vast number of antioxidants, such as tannins and catechins.
Guarana is a powerful stimulant which helps in burning burn large number of calories due to presence of caffeine and other metabolic stimulants. It also enhances fat metabolism in the body and can help obese people lose their weight. In an 8-week study of 67 participants, intake of guarana caused significant weight loss and reductions in hip circumference.
Guarana contains anti-oxidants such as catechin and epicatechin which can restrict carcinogenesis . These antioxidant properties may be associated with the high concentrations of tannins in the seeds. Guarana can restrict growth of cancer cells in colon and breast.
Guarana extracts has ability to provide great benefit in maintain cardiovascular health. It can prevent platelet aggregation, thereby restricting clumping of red blood cells. Guarana prevents hardening of the arteries in older patients, thereby decreasing risk of hypertension and stroke. It can also restrict accumulation of fat in blood vessels. It may also decrease obesity, metabolic syndrome, gut bleeding associated with hypertension and irritable syndrome.
VITAMIN B COMPLEX
SIC prides itself as a rich source Vitamin B complex. Vitamin B complex is composed of eight B vitamins.
Vitamin B1 helps the body to produce energy by using carbohydrates. It is also very important for healthy brain, muscles, and nervous system. It plays key role in growth and development of different organs of the body. Vitamin B2 helps in conversion of Vitamin B6 into a usable form.
Vitamin B5 is also an important vitamin which helps the body in producing sex and stress hormones. It also stimulates the production of red blood cells and cholesterol. Vitamin B6 is significant for protein and carbohydrate metabolism.
It helps in the formation of haemoglobin and important neurotransmitters. It also aids in production of serotonin and dopamine. They can elevate mood of the person. Pyridoxine also boosts immunity and stimulates brain development in the body.
Vitamin B12 (Cobalamin) is beneficial for healthy nervous system as it helps in prevention of Alzheimer’s disease. It also aids in production of red blood cells and DNA. Vitamin B12 plays a key role in protein metabolism.
A number of berries form a part of the SuperLife Immune care formula. These include blueberry, blackcurrant, raspberry and lingonberry.
These berries also contain vitamin C and A two nutrients that are essential to building immunity. They contain polysaccharides and glycoconjugate compounds that promote unique bioactive immunomodulating, antioxidant and antitumor activities in the liver, reproductive organs and the brain.
The blueberry is a fruit scientifically known as Cyanococcus.As a part of SIC, it plays a key role in providing myriad of health benefits.Blueberries have powerful antioxidant properties. These antioxidants are helpful in boosting immunity and combating fatal diseases. Major antioxidants and minerals found abundantly in blueberries are anthocyanin, vitamin C, iron and copper.
They are also rich in fiber which prevents constipation and improve digestion.These vitamins and minerals play key role in strengthening bones. Daily intake of blueberries which are essential part of SIC can keep your bones strong and healthy.
Blueberry consumption has been associated with reductions in blood pressure. It can also protect against certain heart disorders such as chronic heart failure. One study revealed that antioxidants in blueberries tend to amass in areas of the brain associated with intelligence. Eating blueberries lowers risk of heart attacks. This is due to presence of antioxidants called anthocyanins.
Blackcurrant is scientifically known as Ribes nigrum. It is rich in anthocyanins, polyphenolic substances, antioxidants, vitamin C and gamma-linolenic acid (GLA).
Blackcurrant has a very low glycemic index value. This prevents sugar cravings and mood swings. They can also decrease fasting blood glucose level in the blood.
Blackcurrant can aid in production of red blood cells. Copper and iron play key role in erythropoiesis. Blackcurrant can also decrease sleep issues. High content of magnesium in blackcurrant is responsible for quality sleep.
They can enhance functioning of digestive system. Blackcurrant has high content of dietary fibre. It prevents constipation and decreases cholesterol in the blood.
Raspberry is an edible fruit which is scientifically known as Rubus idaeus. It is one of many amazing ingredients of SIC.
They play key role in decreasing oxidative stress, reducing inflammation and halting the process of carcinogenesis. They have protective effect against oral, prostate and breast cancer. High potassium content in berries helps in controlling blood pressure and maintaining good cardiovascular health.
Consuming berries can protect against brain damage and dementia. They do so by reducing stress through their antioxidants.
Powerful antioxidants like Vitamin C, Vitamin A and phenols in raspberries protect the eyes from drying out and safeguard sensitive membranes of eye. Raspberry is extremely low in fat but high in dietary fiber. This helps in reducing excessive body weight. High content of potassium protects the body against dehydration.
Being an essential part of SIC, it provides lot of health benefits. Lingonberries used in SIC help in stimulating the production of white blood and guard against various infections and bacteria.
Research suggests that lingonberries have great protective effect against squamous cell carcinoma of tongue. Their extract is also beneficial in preventing cervical and breast cancer. Antibacterial properties of lingonberries ward off dangerous infections of mouth.
Lingonberry are great source to cure urinary tract infections (UTI). They are also particularly helpful in lowering blood pressure.
