Immune Health Formula
As the body’s first line of defense, immune strength is critical to your health. The human immune system functions as a complex network of cells and organs, specialized to defend the body against attacks by foreign invaders. Proper immune responses seek, find and destroy offending pathogens such as bacteria, viruses, fungi and parasites, and also protect the body from future infections by forming specific antibodies.
When the immune system is weakened or malfunctions, the body becomes highly susceptible to infection and is slower to respond. Compromised immune cells can incorrectly identify pathogens and antibodies, as well as other body cells, which may lead to more severe problems. A combination of factors – including stress, fatigue, lack of sleep, toxins in food and the environment, age, and genetics – all contribute to weakened immunity over time, resulting in everything from the common cold or flu to serious illness.
Maintaining a healthy immune response is a pivotal to overall health and wellness.
Enzymes and Cellular Metabolism
Our bodies rely on intricate chemical reactions to function normally. When these biochemical processes are impaired or if toxins accumulate, the body must turn to abnormal metabolic pathways to survive. As a result, the normal immune response is weakened and eventually becomes irresponsive.
Systemic enzymes provide the energy needed for metabolic reactions essential to immune health. Enzymes have been shown to stimulate the body’s natural defenses while breaking down offending pathogenic immune complexes. This helps relieve stress on the body and strengthen the immune system, which can speed the healing process. Enzymes can also reduce free radical damage, inhibit pathogens and potentially provide support for the most challenging of health disorders.
Introducing Vida Defense by AST Enzymes …
Vida-Defense is a blend of powerful systemic enzymes and antioxidant herbs designed to support normal cellular metabolism and optimal immune function.
The unique blend found in Vida-Defense includes a potent, proprietary blend of plant and microbial proteases SEBPro® V. This is combined with a powerful blend of antioxidant, antimicrobial and immuno-stimulatory enzymes and herbs, including lysozyme, amylase, rutin, chitosanase, catalase, lipase, grapeseed extract and amla extract for complete, broad-spectrum defense.
Benefits of Vida Defense
Vida-Defense is an innovative and powerful enzyme blend formulated to maintain and support the body’s immune system by reducing free radical damage, inhibiting pathogens and providing nutritional and enzymatic support.
A unique proprietary blend of plant and microbial proteases (SEBPro VII) plays the most significant role in Vida-Defense by reducing inflammation, and supporting the body’s natural response to injury or infection. Inflammation is a sign of an abnormal metabolic pathway, used by the body as a reactionary mechanism to injury or illness, which results in a deposit of insoluble proteins. Vida-Defense’s anti-inflammatory proteases help break down these proteins, promoting quicker healing and reducing the severity of the condition.
Vida-Defense incorporates multiple potent antioxidants, including catalase, grapeseed extract and rutin. These components aid in the reduction of Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS), or free radicals, which severely damage cells and lessen their integrity. These powerful antioxidants reduce susceptibility to infection and allow cellular processes to remain focused on proper immune functions.
Vida-Defense includes several antimicrobial enzymes, giving this powerful formula a multifaceted approach to building immunity. Lysozyme, lactoperoxidase and chitosanase work on invading pathogens by breaking down their cellular wall components, making them more vulnerable to immune responses.
The proprietary blend found in Vida-Defense provides an all-encompassing formula for supporting normal cellular metabolism and optimal immune function.
Enzyme Activity in Vida-Defense Proprietary Blend
Proteases (SEBPro VII blend) - Break down proteins and possess significant anti-inflammatory properties; they act systemically, affecting multiple cellular and molecular targets.
Lysozyme - A naturally occurring protein found in many organisms, including plants and animals; biologically, lysozyme attacks the cell wall of certain pathogenic bacteria.
Catalase - A natural immune enhancer and powerful antioxidant.
Lactoperoxidase - A natural antibacterial enzyme which improves immune response; also shown to promote tissue repair and anti-inflammatory activity.
Chitosanase - Powerful enzyme that breaks down chitin, a component in fungal cell walls.
Grapeseed Extract - Scientifically proven to be abundant in bioflavonoids, which are known for their tremendous antioxidant properties.
Rutin - Bioflavonoid; strengthens and tones arteries and veins and provides antioxidant support against free-radicals and inflammation.
