The human body is constantly being attacked by harmful bacteria, viruses and fungi and in order to protect it from these invaders it employs a defense system also known as the “Immune system”. The Immune system is very complex but yet fascinating at the same time. Its job is to maintain homeostasis by destroying and shielding our body against harmful pathogens. The Immune system is made up of white blood cells and the chemicals that they produce. The white blood cells are the body’s first line of defense. + Read more >
There are five different types of white blood cells and each one has a different function - Neutrophils destroy bacteria; Eosinophols, destroy parasites; Basophils fights bacteria and release histamine; Monocytes eat bacteria and Lymphocytes are responsible for the development of immunity. The lymphatic system also plays a role in the immune system; it consists of the Lymphatic vessels, Lymph nodes, Spleen, Thymus and the Mucosa Associated Lymphatic Tissue or “MALT”. The lymphatic system is responsible for clearing and destroying dead blood cells, toxins, pathogens, cancer cells, waste and debris. Immune system disorders happen when the body is not able to fight off harmful microbes. The most common indicators pointing to a compromised immune system are Food Allergies or Environmental Allergies, Tiredness and Weakness and recurring infections as well. There several categories of Immune disorders which are: Autoimmune disorder (i.e. Arthritis, Multiple Sclerosis) – the body attacks its own tissue and organs. Allergic Disorders (i.e. hay fever, dermatitis) – is a reaction to otherwise harmless substance “allergen” normally found in food or the environment. Immune deficiency (i,e, Aids – the body’s immune response is reduced or non-existent. Proper nutrition, regular exercise, reducing environmental and other chemical toxins whenever possible and maintaining a low-stress lifestyle is the key to a healthy and strong immune system. In addition Immune supplements can help you to support your immune system. For those who suffer from Autoimmune disease or Allergies immune boosters are not recommended because in both conditions the immune system is already in an overactive state. Instead focus on Immune supplements that help to build the immune system slowly. Vitamin A, C, D & E and Selenium supplements have antioxidants and immune building properties. Goldenseal strengthens the immune system, detoxifies the body and contains antibacterial properties (should not be taken internally for more than 7 days at the time). Omega 3 essential fatty acids contain the Prostaglandin 3 (PG3) which helps to reduce inflammation and strengthening your immune system. Probiotic supplements are essential for a healthy intestinal system and help to maintain your overall health; they enhance your immune system by maintaining a healthy balance of microflora which is found in your digestive tract. Reishi, Cordyceps and other mushrooms are powerful immune modulators, meaning they will help to balance the immune system. In those that have a weak immune system immune modulators help to raise immunity and if immune modulators are given to someone with an overactive immune system it can help to normalize the immune system. Other Immune supplements are: Zinc, Copper and Iron as well as a protein powder supplement which will assist to repair and build immune function. Astragalus helps to protect and boost the immune system; it is especially useful for colds, influenza and immune deficiency health conditions. However Astragulus should not be used if a fever is present. Echinacea Immune supplements increase certain white blood cells and have anti-inflammatory and anti-viral activities.

Aerobic Oxygen is a revolutionary new product that delivers stabilized oxygen into the blood stream, via the digestive system, in a safe, convenient and highly effective way. Oxygen is one of the most important keys to good health. But most people take for granted the air that they breathe. They believe that they take in sufficient oxygen in order to maintain a healthy body. Unfortunately due to our polluted cities and environment, that is not always the case. The pollution that surrounds us has led to a depletion in our body's own oxygen reserves. Stress is another major factor in the lowering of our oxygen reserves. The pollution, combined with a diet often high in junk food and low in oxygen, and high levels of emotional and physical stress, leads to disease. Taking Aerobic Oxygen can help strengthen your immune system and help maintain the health and vitality that we all long for. Some consider it to be nature's antibiotic.$13.99
FULL BODY RECOVERY HELPS the Body Repair and Recover from Training MINIMIZES Catabolism REDUCES Muscle Soreness INCREASES Protein Synthesis and Nitrogen Retention BOOSTS Immune System Glutamine is a naturally occurring amino acid and one of the most abundant amino acids in the body (comprising approximately 30% of amino acids in the plasma). It is usually classified as a conditionally essential amino acid, as it is produced by the body, but during periods of extreme stress or trauma, it is released from the body and may need to be replenished. Glutamine is naturally found in beans, poultry, fish and dairy products. The majority of Glutamine is produced in the skeletal muscle and adipose tissue. Additionally, glutamine is synthesized in the lungs, liver and brain. It is predominately used for fuel by the small intestines, immune system, hair follicles and the gastrointestinal tract. Glutamine supplementation is beneficial during periods of stress, such as after training Glutamine ensures the body remains in a state of anabolism. For those who train, supplementing with glutamine ensures the body’s stores of this important amino acid are optimized and the skeletal muscle size is maintained. Working out can lead to suppression of the immune system. Intense exercise can quickly deplete glutamine in the muscle cells causing the immune system to weaken and decreases the body’s levels of glutamine. Research has shown that supplementation with glutamine can alleviate the decline of glutamine concentration in the bloodstream following intense exercise. Glutamine May Diminish Catabolism Glutamine also helps to diminish catabolism caused by an increase in the stress hormone cortisol, which is elevated during exercise. A recent study conducted on the effects of glutamine on the muscle found that glutamine actually blocks the action of cortisol’s interference with muscle protein synthesis and repair. This study shows that glutamine can provide an anti-catabolic effect which is beneficial for athletes and bodybuilders. Glutamine supplementation has been found to help elevate glutamine levels in the body and produce an anti-catabolic effect. It can minimize the amount of muscle breakdown and can be particularly helpful when consumed after working out, when catabolism is at its peak. ALLMAX Glutamine is manufactured with the purest raw ingredients at a Pharmaceutical Grade Manufacturing facility ALLMAX Nutrition™ Japanese Micronized Glutamine provides recovery after training and enhances the immune system that can be compromised during intense exercise.
