The immune system is the body’s defender against invading viruses, bacteria, infection, toxins, allergens and stress responses. Autoimmune diseases occur when the body loses the ability to tell the difference between your own cells and invaders and attacks the body’s own tissues. Autoimmune diseases can result in changes in organ function, the destruction of certain types of body tissues or the abnormal growth of an organ. + Read more >
The most commonly affected organs and tissues include connective tissues, blood vessels, red blood cells, muscles, joints, skin and the endocrine glands such as the thyroid, pancreas or pituitary gland. There are over 80 autoimmune diseases and although treatments vary and many of them have no cure, they can often be successfully managed with natural treatments. Using autoimmune disorder supplements to strengthen the immune system can help alleviate symptoms and in some cases cause remission of the autoimmune disorder. Since autoimmune disorders cause inflammatory responses within the body, choosing autoimmune disorder supplements that interrupt or inhibit the pro-inflammatory process is important. Vitamin D, although most commonly known for support of bone health, also inhibits the pro-inflammatory process by suppressing the enhanced activity of the immune cells that are part of autoimmune reaction. Omega-3 fatty acids contain the anti-inflammatory fatty acids EPA and DHA and can help decrease the inflammation associated with autoimmune diseases. Additional autoimmune disorder supplements that have anti-inflammatory properties include green tea extract and quercetin. Strengthening the immune system and making it less vulnerable to infection is important for people suffering from autoimmune diseases. Making sure you include a high quality multivitamin, Vitamin B, C and E in your autoimmune disorder supplements will help your body deal with stress and fight infection more effectively. Cleansing the body of toxins is also beneficial in the fight against autoimmune diseases and using a high quality cleansing and detoxification supplement can help achieve this. Many people living with autoimmune diseases will have been prescribed antibiotics numerous times in order to fight off bacterial infections and because of this it is important to restore the balance of the gut flora. Adding a probiotic to your autoimmune disorder supplements will restore and maintain this important balance. It is important to complement any autoimmune disorder supplement program with healthy lifestyles choices. In order to minimize possible food reactions that can increase the autoimmune response, try and eat only an allergen-free, whole food, anti-inflammatory diet. Helping to build the body’s strength by exercising, maintaining proper hydration and getting plenty of sleep is also important. Body Energy Club’s online vitamin and supplement store has a large selection of autoimmune disorder supplements to help improve your autoimmune symptoms and quality of life naturally. Before starting any new supplements it is important to check with your doctor to make sure they are right for you, especially if you have a medical condition or are taking prescription medications.+ Read less >
