Sugar can be very destructive to your health. Here‚Äôs how sugar affects the body‚ÄĒspecifically the immune system.

3:35 How sugar affects immunity #7

In this video, we‚Äôre going to talk about how sugar affects the body‚ÄĒspecifically the immune system. High blood sugar (hyperglycemia) has a huge effect on suppressing the immune system. Hyperglycemia is even one of the big factors involved in the COVID situation that could increase the risk of mortality.¬†

How sugar affects immunity:

1. Inhibited chemotaxis 
Chemotaxis is the movement of white blood cells through the body towards where they need to do their work. 

2. Impaired phagocytosis  
Phagocytosis is the mechanism where certain white blood cells will ultimately kill pathogens.

3. Inhibited complement cascade 
Complement cascade is a series of events that can occur that will cause the bacterial membrane to burst. It helps kill bacteria.

4. Acidosis‚ÄĒinhibits immunity¬†
The pH will go down, which can inhibit immunity. 

5. Slows white blood cells moving through tissues 
White blood cells have the ability to go through the tissues, the lymphatic system, organs, and blood vessels. Inhibiting this movement can have a negative effect on the immune system. 

6. Blood flow diminished 
High blood sugar could destroy the vascular system. This can cause less oxygen throughout the body. With that, you could have an increase in pathogens that can live in that environment. 

7. Less innate immunity 
This is a part of the immune system that’s like a wall. Hyperglycemia can destroy the protective barriers.

Iodine and Your Immune System

Here’s The Video Description From YouTube

Iodine has some pretty amazing and unique effects on the immune system. Here’s what you need to know.

0:58 Iodine and the thyroid 
1:20 Iodine deficiency 
2:33 Estrogen and iodine 
3:14 Pregnancy and iodine 
3:48 Iodine and the immune system 

Today we’re going to talk about iodine and immune system health. I’ve talked a lot about important nutrients like zinc, vitamin D, and vitamin C in relation to the immune system. But I haven’t talked about iodine. Iodine has a unique influence on the immune system. 

You need about 150mcg of iodine per day. Many people, around 2 billion, are deficient in iodine. Sea kelp seems to be the best source of iodine, but there are other great iodine sources as well. 

The best iodine-rich foods are:
‚ÄĘ Sea kelp
‚ÄĘ Shellfish
‚ÄĘ Fish¬†
‚ÄĘ Eggs
‚ÄĘ Dairy¬†

Iodine is needed for the thyroid. The thyroid is the gland that stores iodine and helps make thyroid hormones. If you’re deficient in iodine, your thyroid stimulating hormone can go up. Thyroid stimulating hormone has a few different functions. One would be that it causes the thyroid to get bigger. Another function is that it increases the release of the thyroid hormone T4, which can then be converted to T3. 

Something else that messes with the thyroid is estrogen. It just so happens that iodine is a great mineral to help lower high levels of estrogen. 

Iodine and all of the trace minerals are very important for pregnant women. If a pregnant woman is deficient in iodine, there could be massive problems for the child, including:

‚ÄĘ Intellectual disabilities¬†
‚ÄĘ Deafness¬†
‚ÄĘ Stunted growth¬†

Iodine and the immune system:

1. Enhances dendritic cells 
2. Supports B-cell development 
3. Helps stimulate phagocytes 
4. Enhances natural killer cells 
5. Enhances cytokines 
6. Good for memory cells

Your Immune System is a Highly Trained Military

Your Immune System is a Highly Trained Military

Your Immune System is a Highly Trained Military

New To Keto But Want To Grow Your Knowledge?

More specifically, you want help with Your Immune System is a Highly Trained Military?

today I’m going to talk about a very
important topic and that is your own immune system you may not realize this
but your immune system is the most kick-ass military that ever was to help
you understand the immune system we’re¬†gonna compare it to the US military and
to do that I’m actually gonna bring on a¬†guest and his name is commander Dave
Overcash he’s been in the US Navy for 27¬†years he’s retired now his 27 years of
service included over 300 landings on aircraft carriers five deployments to
the Middle East overseas tours in Hawaii Japan and South
Korea and serviced at the Pentagon Dave thanks for coming on thank you dr. Berg
it’s a pleasure to be here I look¬†forward to our discussion so what I’m
gonna do is I’m gonna try to make this¬†as simple as possible it’s difficult
because it’s a complex subject but let¬†me just attempt to do that
what is the immune system the immune system is your defense system
it’s your military it’s there to protect¬†you you have various barriers you have
your skin the outside and you also have the barrier of your internal skin in
fact the internal skin of your body is quite large in fact it covers 400 square
meters that’s the size of two tennis¬†courts so it’s a tremendous amount of
surface area and you have billions of immune cells just beneath the surface
guarding that wall waiting for an invader or a pathogen viruses bacteria
so that would be a front line of defense so Dave give me a comparison of that to
what the military has the formal military term for that would be the four
line of troops or the forward edge of¬†the battle space there’s gonna be highly
trained but not necessarily you know very specialized troops but very large
numbers of them in mechanized units I might be a term some of your folks would
be familiar with but you’re those are¬†your general troops that are gonna be
right up along the front that are gonna be able to detect any movement
in your adversaries and be able to be the first line of defense against
whatever comes against them so this would also compare to something you
would see at the airport you have metal detectors you have all sorts of
screening devices to weed out those bad actors or people that potentially could
carry a bomb on a plane when I was in practice that I would do seminars in
governmental agencies so I bought online these those little credit card knifes
right as a box cutter I thought they’re¬†really cool they actually fold up the
credit card so uh you know where this is going I basically bought one put in my
wall and I forgot about it and I actually somehow took a flight and that
wasn’t even detected but then the next¬†week it was in my wallet I went to do
one of my seminars had the governmental agency in DC and so as I went through
security I just remembered as he was going in
that I had that in my wallet and my heart started to pound and all of a
sudden but the little red light went off they opened up the wallet and found this
credit card knife and they called I¬†don’t know what code code red or
something they call people to shut down the entire building and they pointed to
me and they put me on the wall put me in
handcuffs and I said no no no you can have it you can write so they took me to
a room to wait for the FBI to come they wanted to check me out just to make sure
so I’m like I’m just here to do a¬†seminar what’s happening and I mean
unfortunately there’s a huge line of¬†people and they’re like they couldn’t
leave they couldn’t get in everything¬†was frozen so I had to wait for some
hours and so I’m sitting there handcuffs¬†and there’s two military people guarded
to sit there just guarding me and it was apparently a room that they had some
food in it and there was a cake and¬†they’re talking about nutrition and I I
just couldn’t help myself¬†to speak up it just wasn’t the best time
to talk about you know car bhai so I kind of quickly so then the middle
of the FBI came and they just they said¬†what’s your intent I said I just thought
it was cool and I got in so they go yeah this is kind of cool
and so they escorted me to the car and everyone was watching and I had to
secure this weapon in the car so I can go back and do my seminar presentation
so this is another example how the¬†immune system would work it’s constantly
scanning for pathogens things that are not itself and a very important part of
immune system is to differentiate between the good guys and the bad guys
so the main players on the front line of defense are the phagocytes okay these
are cells that eat bacteria and viruses and the top professional phagocyte is
called a macrophage macrophage means big¬†cell that eats it’s pretty much acts as
a garbage disposal it eats up debris but¬†if there’s an invader that macrophage
will go in there and take it down and if¬†there’s a lot of invaders it will hold
the fort while it recruits back up so this part of the immune system is called
the innate which is part of the immune¬†system that doesn’t need to Train any
specialists you’re pretty much born with¬†this these are general soldiers that
have a nonspecific defense mechanism so they can handle little stuff but when
things get too crazy your body recruits more specialists from this system right
here this is called the adaptive immune system or the acquired so then we have
the neutrophil now when you get an infection and you have mucus and pus 70%
of that is made out of neutrophils okay so neutrophils have three weapons
they can eat microbes but they also control chemicals as well as a net over
the microbes and so the chemicals of the use are hydrogen peroxide the active
ingredient in Bleach so they use bleach to kill these microbes as after they
pulled them in what’s interesting in the¬†military is there are certain types of
chemical warfare that they use so Dave¬†why don’t you give us a comparison on
yeah there sure is there’s chemical and¬†biological weapons that they’re very
effective and neutralizing an adversary everything related to a chemical kind of
attack slows you down and has a an inordinate impact on you compared to
normal conventional weapons I remember when I went to basic training that was
in 1983 I was in the military the army reserved for five years I was a medic we
had to go through this gas chamber and of course they did not give us really
toxic chemicals but they exposed us to tear gas and that was a major thing for
a lot of people including myself I can’t¬†even imagine being exposed to something
even stronger than that because that was pretty strong so the neutrophil will
also throw a net like spider-man on the pathogen with chemicals to dissolve it
you know your your example they’re kind¬†of like wrapping up and then adding
chemicals what it reminds me of is is indirect fires that are used in the
military where a let’s say some troops¬†are on the ground and they need to call
in artillery support or close air support what they might do is term that
that’s used as maybe is bracketing you¬†know they’ll call in a fire and they’ll
see where that bomb lands they’ll see¬†where that show lands and then they’ll
adjust that fire and then when they get it on to exactly where they want it
they’re gonna ask for maximum effect of¬†the available indirect fires and and
then yeah they’ll be able to take out¬†the adversary that way so we have the
macrophage the neutrophil these are both phagocytes then we have something over
here called the natural killer cell so one of the things that this cell does is
it releases something called interferon interferon comes from the word interfere
because the function of interferon interferes with viral reproduction so it
stops the production of viruses which is the virus weapon so it slows down the
production of the enemy the leadership of the
and military realized we have to destroy their means of replicating their
capabilities and so the United States ate their force in World War two based
in England went after the entire German industrial military-industrial complex
they bombed every factory you could possibly imagine
destroying plants that produce tanks plants have produced artillery pieces
the plants have produced ball bearings anything that would produce a mechanized
piece of equipment so the idea was wow¬†we can’t get rid of these folks fast
enough for this equipment fast enough so if we can prevent them from producing
any more at least there’s a finite¬†number of things that we have to destroy
instead of an infinite all right we just talked about the innate immune system
now let’s talk about the adaptive immune¬†system now the adaptive immune system is
acquired in other words it learns from experience in order for that part of the
immune system to work correctly you need to expose it to a pathogen or a germ so
if someone lives in a sterilized environment they never develop their
immune system so it’s very very¬†important understand that your immune
system grows and becomes stronger through training going through an
infection overcoming it and now having¬†that memory of it so it’s ready for the
next time Dave give me an example how important training is in the military
you know our operations manuals people say are written in blood right so all
the mistakes that previous folks used and either died or or crashed aircraft
the lessons learned from those things are then written in your operations
manual so you don’t make that same¬†mistake twice
there’s a lot of potential for problems¬†there and they came to pass in the
Vietnam War there were three major aircraft carrier fires hundreds of men
were killed in fires that start that on those aircraft carriers they had a very
difficult and stopping the fires once they began
because of all those things that are on the flight deck not everyone on the
aircraft carrier was trained at the time to fight fires and so they instituted a
program where every single person that goes on to a ship any ship has to go
through significant firefighting experience because they found that the
initial wave of firefighters were killed in trying to fight these fires and then
there wasn’t anybody trained to really¬†take out those fires once they began so
yeah if you don’t train you are damned¬†to continue having similar accidents
over time so this part of the museum are¬†more specialists they’re like the
Special Forces they actually have very specific actions that they are assigned
to these guys are more general these guys are more targeted give us some examples of the different
units or special forces that you have in¬†the military a lot of times we can’t
match the pure numbers that maybe the adversary that we go against has but we
need to have better training and so we have a lot of Special Forces or Special
Operations Forces in the military the Navy SEALs Delta Force you know what we
found is that like I think I can think of a couple examples we what we found
that even if our adversary say purchases a very excellent piece of equipment we
could beat that adversary with a lesser capability if we have trained harder mmm
and and that’s why maybe we might not be¬†so afraid of a North Korean pilot with a
great piece of equipment because he¬†doesn’t train very much
because their economy so poor they don’t¬†have the resources to be able to train a
lot and so he may be up there and a great piece of equipment but he really
doesn’t know how to operate it he’s not¬†proficient at ador or even say the
Iranian Navy purchases a Russian¬†submarine that’s not the same as a
Russian submarine crew highly trained operating a Russian piece of equipment
the Iranians are gonna be as good at it so we found that that training that
exposure the more realistic the training the better one one more example I give
you is that in the Marines when they¬†have target practice they don’t use
automated targets they actually have their the Marines will go behind a dirt
berm and I believe they still do this and pull the targets up and down so that
they can hear the bullets going overhead while the other Marines are conducting
target practice that acclimates them were to an environment where they might
be in battle which makes them more likely to be able to succeed when they
are in that kind of environment so these¬†specialized immune cells they’re called
t-cells stands for thymus basically get their
training in the thymus gland which is¬†not the thyroid sounds similar and it’s
actually located lower than the thyroid so the thyroids here thymus is right
above the heart and what’s interesting¬†is only 30% of those t-cells make it
through this training the rest die off¬†so they’re very selective and when
you’re born you have this huge thymus as¬†you get older it starts shrinking and
shrinking and shrinking and stress will shrink it a vitamin D deficiency will
cause a shrinkage of the thymus gland so nutrition is very very important keeping
your thymus very strong in reality these pathogens target different weaknesses
within your immune system so if you have a very strong immune system even though
it might not be very large it could handle a huge invasion of viruses or
pathogens we have a lot of special forces or special operations forces in
the military some examples would be the Navy SEALs maybe Green Berets Delta
Force US Army Rangers the Air Force has a group called the pair rescue men or
PJs there’s a pride the most well-known¬†that they’re the most highly trained the
the most specialized forces that we have for very specific target sets one point
I want to make is this when someone gets an infection they have a cough or runny
nose a fever some type of indicator that¬†there’s a battle going on within your
body the worst thing to do is to stop that infection to suppress those
symptoms because what’s going to happen¬†is you’re stopping the training of your
t-cells you’re cutting it short and when¬†you try to suppress the immune system
the duration of infection goes longer and longer so they have to work harder
and harder so it’s very very important¬†to enhance the immune system with diet
nutrition keeping your stress low than it is to quickly try to shut down those
symptoms all right so we talked about the three players under the innate
there’s actually four main players¬†within the adaptive immune system first
one is the killer t-cell now what these guys do is they have a
chemical called perform which punches a hole through the cell and then they
release a chemical that causes the cell to commit suicide for the greater good
of the body so these cells that die for the greater good to kill out that virus
are are considered like hero cells Ujima where there were a lot of Marines that
would jump on grenades that that landed¬†near them and they’re their buddies and
they wanted to protect their friends and a lot of examples also with with folks
that are in the Medal of Honor which is¬†the highest medal of valor that’s
awarded in the military where they’re¬†wounded they believe that but they’re
not going to make it and so they would do something that was extraordinary or
out of the ordinary where they would go off by themselves to create some kind of
a diversion that would allow the troops a left behind to exploit you know the
weakness that was made by that movement but they knew that they were gonna die
alright the next player is the T helper cell so this cell is a very important
self there’s the main coordinator for¬†the entire battle going on so it’s going
to recruit backup it’s going to¬†determine what players are involved what
part of your military is gonna be used at what volume what types of weapon tree
Dave give me an example of what you’d¬†have in the military that compares to
that oh absolutely that’s that’s a¬†commander at any level give some general
direction about how he wants it done and how often those things are going to
happen you have to have somebody at the¬†top that’s directing the overall
movement and kind of sees the big picture now one thing I want to mention
about the tea house CEL is that viruses have strategies to
invade and take over the body and our body has strategy is to kind of go back
and forth so we have this battle back and forth and if we take the HIV virus
its strategy is to take down the T helper cell if it succeeds in doing that
because your immune system is weak the¬†entire immune system won’t be able to
work and that’s why it’s called in¬†immunodeficiency disease¬†so viruses are very intelligent they’re
gonna take down like the key player involved in this battle
now they’ve give me an example of¬†something in the military that is
somewhat similar an individual at the top is as the center of gravity the
desert storm it was Saddam Hussein or Iraqi Freedom Saddam Hussein and even
when we attacked Afghanistan Osama bin¬†Laden so we’re constantly going after
the head and believing that if we take out the head of the organization then
the rest of the body or the rest of the country will fall into disarray and it
will there will be a better use of our resources and make it easier for us to
go in and the key to all of it is being undetected because once an adversary
knows what you’re trying to do they can¬†build up their defenses and they can
counter whatever it is that you’re¬†trying to do I have a couple examples of
some really damaging spies that we’ve¬†had over our time one her name was Ana
Montes she was a spy for Cuba and the Defense Intelligence Agency we we found
that she did some amazing damage by her time you know right in the middle of all
the greatest intelligence that we had about Cuba during the Cold War and then
another one being Aldrich Ames who was a KGB spy in the CIA for longest time we
had no idea and he was he did some extremely the damage from his passing of
information that he was able to get undetected was was really significant
now one strategy that these viruses have is they have the ability to go inside
the cell and turn off your vitamin D¬†receptor this means that you can’t
absorb any more vitamin D apparently they know the vitamin D is crucial for
your immune system it is involved in¬†every single level and if you don’t have
enough vitamin D¬†then you can’t turn off these huge
what’s called cytokine storms which is¬†an inflammatory condition that’s out of
control¬†it’s an overactive immune system and
that’s really what’s killing people in¬†this Cove in 1917 system and the enemy
the virus and what their strategies are so you can actually overcome it so since
we’re talking a little bit about¬†strategy there has been a person in
history sunsoo that was a military strategist and he wrote a book called
the art of war and I happened to find a book that was translated from original
Mandarin Chinese this guy who was in the Vietnam War got very interested in this
book he spent six years learning Mandarin Chinese and then translated
word-for-word the entire text the original translation of the title of Sun
Tzu’s book based on the author’s¬†research was not the art of war it was
the technology of war which is very different technology means more of an
exact science of how to do something versus art implies adding your own
creativity I want to give you just one quote says this following this reasoning
supreme skill is not 100 victories in 100 battles supreme skill is subduing
the enemy’s operations and its forces¬†without battle so if we take a look at
that quote and compare it to the battle¬†that’s going on between your immune
system and a virus how would we subdue¬†the virus’s operation well with the COVID-19 we know that that virus pretty much¬†only attacks someone with a weakened
immune system so the obvious strategy would necessarily only be to avoid the
virus forever it would be also to strengthen the immune system because
that virus really can’t do anything up¬†against a really strong immune system
all right so let’s talk about the next¬†player the B cells B cells make
antibodies so antibodies are created from an infection so in other words this
is where your immune system learn from being exposed to a very specific
pathogen so soon as it gets exposed and you go through the infection
can you recover the next time that specific microbe invade your body your
immune system is ready it will neutralize that infection so you have
immunity you’re not gonna have this¬†massive reaction anymore
and one way that the antibodies do this¬†is they lock on to a pathogen it’s like
handcuffs and they keep it from going into the cell so it dries out and it
dies another way that it does it is it tags the pathogen they assist in the
killing by identifying who are the bad guys so then the killer T cells come in
there and do the dirty work so Dave give me an example of something
in the military that’s equivalent to¬†that couple examples working as a team
with other capabilities is really critical to your effectiveness so one
would be a sniper and the scout or the¬†spotter that’s with him or her so you
have one individual who’s finding¬†targets and passing the information or
where the targets are to the person who has the skill to actually shoot the
weapon so that’s a man that is a very¬†effective team the scout and the sniper
working together another one to be I think a naval aviation in the Cold War
one aircraft might fly out that has a great sensor suite so they can soak up
electronic signals while they’re trying¬†to find an adversary ship or something
like that but that aircraft isn’t going¬†to have the weapons that would be needed
to take out the actual ship so one aircraft has the sensors the other one
has the weapons and once the first one finds the adversary then the other one
is tasked with eliminating that adversary all right so the last player
and the adaptive immune system is called the T regulatory cell now this cell is
also called the T suppressor cell and one of the functions of this cell is to
differentiate between the bad guys and the good guys
so this is very very very important¬†because it’s there to prevent autoimmune
diseases and if this cell doesn’t work¬†correctly your body will start to
develop antibodies against its own tissue and that could be to any tissue
so you can have ms lupus Hashimoto’s¬†rheumatoid arthritis where you have
these antibodies that are attacking itself autoimmune conditions is very
similar to friendly-fire in the military Dave can you give us a little example of
what could happen in military if you have a role player or a traitor we are
very concerned about those interlopers or those rogue agents well the military
has a lot of things in place to find try to find spies that kind of rogue element
can do extreme damage to an entire country its highest its greatest secrets
on same thing even on that carrier strike group example one adversary
aircraft it’s kind of hiding in a strike¬†force returning to the carrier could
wipe out a carrier whether its defenses¬†are down so it’s a critical to find
who’s or to be able to identify who’s¬†friendly and who’s not now another very
important thing about the t-regulatory cells is it has a suppressive action it
calms down the immune system it puts out the fire when you have this hyper
inflammatory response it’s called the¬†cytokine storm so really what kills
people in certain infections is not¬†necessarily the viral entity it’s these
killer cells over here and this cell because the regulatory cell is deficient
we don’t have this water hose to put out¬†the fire so that pretty much completes
all the different players in the immune system Dave do you have anything else
you want to add to this there’s a saying¬†that George General George Patton in
World War two had and he said that planning is everything and plans are
nothing hmm in other words you can come up with a plan to fight a battle but it
everything is going to change after the first shot is fired but the importance
learning about your adversary understanding yourself is absolutely
everything you can identify how to prepare you can identify your own
weaknesses you can identify your adversaries weaknesses and your own
strengths and their strengths so you know where to attack you know where to
fortify your own weaknesses that’s¬†everything that will help you be
prepared to fight an adversary and our military is doing that all the time
against all our adversaries and I would¬†think that you would probably say that’s
exactly what your audience needs to be doing and what we need to be doing ok I
just want to say thank you so much for your service and also for helping me in
this presentation and I also want to mention to you watching you have in your
body right now the most amazing kick-ass military immune system that ever existed
and all you have to do is feed it the right foods take care of it take the
vitamin D the vitamin C the zinc and it will return the favor by protecting
you¬†hey we’re back with another amazing recipe no¬†grains no sugar
totally keto¬†there’s no suffering on keto absolutely
not Karen and it’s an immune system¬†builder absolutely you have to check this out
I think you should hurry up watch the¬†recipe and make it yourself it’s just so
easy to be keto¬†but is it simple it’s super simple we hope

Why Are You Squashing Your Immune System?

Why Are You Squashing Your Immune System?

Why Are You Squashing Your Immune System?

New To Keto But Want To Grow Your Knowledge?

More specifically, you want help with Why Are You Squashing Your Immune System??

hey I’m back and today we’re going to
talk about suppressing the infection cycle is it a good idea or a bad idea
let’s say for example you’re healthy¬†you’re relatively young and don’t have
pre-existing health problems and you start having a fever muscle ache
flu-like symptoms a runny nose a cough should you automatically start taking
ibuprofen antibiotics some type of medication to suppress these symptoms or
not well let’s take a look at what’s¬†really happening internally specifically
with viruses the virus first invades the body and its goal is to get inside the
cell so it starts to attach to your cell and then it actually gets into the cell
and then it opens up it takes the outer part of it and just opens up and
releases its RNA or DNA into your cellular machinery and then once it
hijacks gets into your cellular machinery it starts to take over the
copy machine so it can mass-produce now¬†when it does that your own body doesn’t
have access to that copy machine so as¬†the viral is using machinery it doesn’t
allow your own body to use that machinery so then what happens is as the
blueprints are copied they’re sent to¬†other machinery of your cell to
reproduce the actual cell itself so these are the tiny machines that make
proteins then when the virus is replicated it can then be released
through the cell and that’s called¬†shedding so in this process if the virus
is outside the cell it can’t really do¬†anything to you once this virus gets in
the cell it’s hard for your immune¬†system to identify it but ourselves have
adapted to countering this measure so¬†there’s certain proteins in there that
can detect the virus and those little proteins will go to the surface of the
cell and signal other parts of your¬†immune system that hey there’s a virus
inside the cell and it does it signaling¬†through certain cytokines so it’s not a
kind is really a communication that is sent out to the immune system and there
are different cytokines for different things so you have
cytokines that are also pro-inflammatory they make inflammation and others that
are anti-inflammatory as well so what¬†the cytokine is going to do it’s going
to send a signal out to various parts of¬†your immune system and what’s going to
be generated from that is a very powerful antiviral cytokine or weapon
it’s called interferon so interferon is¬†the chemical that triggers certain
symptoms of a virus infection cough fever muscle ache flu-like
symptoms so what you have to realize is¬†that when you have these symptoms it’s
not always the best thing to try to¬†suppress these because you’re also going
to suppress this interferon and interferon comes from this word
interfere because its function is that it interferes with the virus reproducing
so it’s very very important to allow¬†interferon to do its job to decrease the
reproduction of viruses if you’re¬†healthy and you don’t have a lot of
pre-existing health problems and you’re¬†not very old the best thing to do is to
support the immune system not to¬†suppress it because they found that it’s
going to increase the duration of the¬†infection you’re gonna be stuck with the
infection a lot longer if you try to¬†suppress this mechanism also there’s
even studies that show that taking something to suppress the immune system
increases your mortality rate ideally the best thing to do is let your body
fight the infection and support the immune system by getting on an eating
plan that lowers your carbohydrates that enhances vitamin D zinc and vitamin C
these are crucial keeping your stress down because stress will also prolong
this infection and as far as the fever goes you want to stay hot take a hot
shower wear extra clothes when you’re¬†going to bed to speed up the process
because the fever is generated as an antiviral action to suppress the
reproduction of viruses anyway I wanted to bring this up because a lot of people
have these symptoms and they automatically try to get rid of them
they don’t really understand what’s¬†happening if you want more information
about how to boost the immune system check out this video

2:50 Is it best to suppress immune symptoms?
3:50 How to help support the immune system

Today we’re going to talk about whether or not it’s a good or bad idea to suppress the infection cycle.¬†

Let’s say you’re healthy, relatively young, you don’t have pre-existing health problems, but you start having a fever, muscle aches, flu-like symptoms, a runny nose, and cough. Should you automatically start taking medications and antibiotics to suppress the symptoms, or not?¬†

When a virus first invades the body, its goal is to get inside of the cell. When it’s in the cell, it releases its RNA or DNA into your cellular machinery. Once it gets into your cellular machinery, it starts to take over the copy machine so it can mass produce. When it does that, your body doesn’t have access to that copy machine. Now, as the blueprints are copied, they’re sent to other machinery to reproduce the actual cell. When the virus is replicated, it can be released through the cell.¬†

There are certain proteins that can detect the virus. They go to the surface of the cell and signal other parts of the immune system to let them know there’s a virus. It does the signaling through certain cytokines. A cytokine is really a communication that’s sent out to the immune system. There are different cytokines for different things.¬†

The signal from the cytokine will trigger a very powerful antiviral cytokine called interferon. Interferon is a chemical that triggers certain symptoms of a virus infection. 

It may not always be best to suppress these symptoms because you’ll also suppress interferon. Interferon can interfere with the virus reproducing. If you’re healthy, relatively young, and you don’t have pre-existing health problems, it may be best to support the immune system and not suppress it.¬†

How to help support the immune system:

1. Lower your carbohydrates
2. Vitamin D
3. Vitamin C
4. Zinc 
5. Lower stress
6. Stay hot

How Does Protein Consumption Affect Your Immune System

How Does Protein Consumption Affect Your Immune System

New To Keto But Want To Grow Your Knowledge?

More specifically, you want help with How Does Protein Consumption Affect Your Immune System?

does consuming more protein potentially¬†help your immune system it would make¬†sense to think that if you’re¬†immunocompromised and you’re getting¬†sick your body’s going to demand more¬†protein I mean if you put it together¬†like a workout you know you’ve worked¬†out with high intensity eating more¬†protein to recover you kind of think¬†along the same lines with getting sick¬†well to some degree it’s true but what¬†we’re gonna discuss in this video is¬†more about the individual amino acids¬†and how they contribute to the overall¬†effect of specific immune responses¬†because that’s what’s kind of cool you¬†can almost cherry pick which amino acids¬†you consume to at least get yourself a¬†little bit more of a benefit or at least¬†bring yourself up to the standard that¬†your immune system needs to be at to¬†properly be at its best and defend you¬†okay so before we get into all this I’m¬†going to talk briefly about what the¬†innate immune system is and what the¬†adaptive immune system is simply because¬†it’s it just needs to be discussed okay¬†first the innate immune system that’s¬†the immune system that you’re¬†essentially born with right that’s your¬†overarching and kind of way to just¬†fight pathogen from a very simple sense¬†okay so think of it like this pathogen¬†enters your body your innate immune¬†system just signals goes to on okay it’s¬†either off or on and it triggers the¬†release of all kinds of different things¬†prostaglandins inflammation fever¬†interferon things to make you start¬†fighting this pathogen okay and this is¬†the immune system you’re born with and¬†then there’s sort of a secondary effect¬†okay leukocytes white blood cells things¬†like that that go out and actually¬†engulf the pathogen and then there’s¬†sort of another affect after that of¬†immune cells that continue to Patrol¬†okay but the reason that it’s called the¬†innate immune system is because it’s not¬†specific it’s just explosive so then we¬†look at what’s called the adaptive¬†immune system the adaptive immune system¬†is just like the name implies it adapts¬†okay¬†it recognizes an illness that it’s seen¬†before okay and an antibody can hang out¬†on the outside of an immune cell to¬†basically identify something that’s seen¬†before so if you have a pathogen that¬†you’ve had before into your body and you¬†have an immune cell traveling around and¬†it happens to have that sort of antibody¬†on¬†attached to the side of it it’s gonna¬†recognize it it’s gonna know exactly how¬†to deal with it now where does this all¬†come into play with protein we’re gonna¬†dive into that right now but first¬†please do hit the red subscribe button¬†and then hit that little bell icon so¬†that you can always get notifications¬†whenever we go live or whenever you post¬†new videos which is just about every¬†single day let’s go ahead and let’s jump¬†in it’s the British Journal of nutrition¬†and dive in a little bit regarding one¬†specific amino acid called alanine okay¬†now what’s interesting about alanine is¬†it’s not an essential amino acid which¬†means the body is the ability to create¬†it but when your body is in need of it¬†it is definitely in need of it now¬†what’s going on is your immune cells for¬†whatever reason will have protein¬†degradation that occurs within them now¬†the question is does this protein¬†degradation occur just generally or does¬†it occur more when they’re under load¬†like when the immune cells are actually¬†working the point is the British Journal¬†of nutrition seems to believe that it¬†has to do with the fact that alanine is¬†a precursor to glucose when it comes¬†down to the immune cells meaning it¬†potentially can fuel the immune cell or¬†at least stop that protein degradation¬†basically what happens is this immune¬†cell when it starts exerting more energy¬†it’s going to need more energy it’s¬†going to need more glucose so it can¬†break down material in and of itself it¬†can break down proteins into the aminos¬†that it needs and it seems to need¬†alanine for whatever reason again we¬†don’t really know this and it’s a¬†non-essential amino so it’s not¬†something you typically have to get from¬†the diet but if your immune system is¬†heavily taxed it’s sort of implied that¬†alanine might help us out however that¬†doesn’t mean that you should just go¬†jump in and buy a bunch of alanine I¬†mean let’s take a look at some of the¬†other amino acids so we see how they¬†play a role with the immune system this¬†next amino acid is known moreso in the¬†fitness community as one that would¬†normally increase blood flow which¬†directly has a result with our immune¬†system – right okay it’s called arginine¬†now there’s a two part answer to why¬†arginine is really really important okay¬†for one when it comes down to our white¬†blood cells arginine actually helps the¬†proliferation and the effectiveness of¬†the white blood cell so arginine is¬†involved in the formation of the¬†molecules¬†serve this purpose on a white blood cell¬†so for example when a white blood cell¬†is traveling around and it’s trying to¬†recognize what a pathogen is it has a¬†little molecule that essentially rides¬†on top of it okay¬†so it’s like the white blood cell is a¬†horse and the little molecule is the¬†actual warrior sitting on it and warrior¬†has to identify what the pathogen is¬†well it turns out that arginine is¬†needed for the functionality of that¬†molecule so you get down to a really¬†meaty gritty of it when it gets down to¬†the literally molecular level but let’s¬†expand a little bit more because if we¬†look at nitric oxide synthase which is¬†required for vasodilation and increased¬†blood flow that plays a big role within¬†our immune system too so think about our¬†innate immune system think about how¬†inflammation works for a minute okay¬†inflammation we have an increase in¬†blood flow and increase of swelling to a¬†given area well that happens inside our¬†body to not just externally when we get¬†an injury so we have a lot more blood¬†being delivered which means we have more¬†nitric oxide the interesting thing is is¬†that some immune cells actually create¬†their own nitric oxide can they create¬†their own n oh that’s how imperative it¬†is it’s super important but if we¬†supplement with a little bit of arginine¬†or we get it through proper protein¬†consumption we give our body the¬†necessary mechanisms and tools that it¬†needs to create that nitric oxide to¬†create that synthase so we can actually¬†deliver the blood flow and fight the¬†good fight that it needs now kind of a¬†fun tip for you arginine is less¬†effective than taking say citrulline¬†okay sip filling converts to arginine¬†within the body and you might get a more¬†bioavailable form but honestly the best¬†way is just to be getting it through a¬†good solid source of protein okay let’s¬†move into the next one which is one a¬†lot of people know about glutamine¬†glutamine has a two-part response within¬†the immune system as well there the¬†first thing I want to touch on is¬†remember a good portion of our immune¬†system is within aren’t got already¬†alright between 60 and 80 percent of our¬†immune system is living within our gut¬†okay a lot of our immune cells are there¬†gloomy plays a very big role in terms of¬†overall gut health which could¬†contribute to a healthier immune system¬†to begin with but that’s not really what¬†I want to focus on what we want to look¬†at here is how glutamine plays a role¬†with the actual immune cell itself so¬†our glutamine comes in¬†it literally helps create white blood¬†cells helps create the immune cells but¬†I think even more importantly in that it¬†aids in the actual mobilization¬†so without glutamine if you’re deficient¬†in glutamine the white blood cells don’t¬†really know where to go as much or they¬†don’t get dispatched but they also aid¬†in what’s called phagocytosis this is¬†where you’re actually golfing a pathogen¬†so you can see each of you know acid¬†kind of has a different role in terms of¬†support okay some actually build the¬†white blood cells and help them dispatch¬†some help them build the molecules it¬†all plays a different role what’s¬†interesting is we usually see glutamine¬†being depleted whenever there are¬†extensive burns or whenever there’s a¬†bunch of you know bigger wound it’s an¬†injury to write a lot of times they’ll¬†say if you have an open wound¬†taking a glutamine can help support that¬†but interestingly enough I’ve also seen¬†glutamine levels suppress a little bit¬†when there’s a high degree of endurance¬†exercise which is also coincidentally¬†correlated with upper respiratory tract¬†infections right so we kind of look at¬†the big picture say okay when we’re¬†immunocompromised glutamine might be one¬†of the first things that ends up getting¬†suppressed or ends up getting reduced we¬†used to always talk about even in the¬†kind of the meathead muscle world we¬†used to say okay you taking a glutamine¬†after a workout it could potentially¬†keep your resistance from getting super¬†low so there’s a lot of different rabbit¬†holes that you would go down with that¬†the fact is again good quality¬†well-rounded protein you’re going to end¬†up getting that glutamine and I don’t¬†necessarily think you need to supplement¬†specifically with glutamine unless¬†you’re doing extensive extensive¬†endurance work and you’re also¬†immunocompromised at the same time¬†here’s where things get a little bit¬†interesting though and we start getting¬†into the branch chain amino acids for¬†example isoleucine well then we see an¬†interesting effect on the immune system¬†okay when isoleucine or some of the¬†other branched chain amino acids are¬†lower like we’re deficient in them we¬†see a significant decrease in immune¬†system function however when you¬†supplement with branched chain amino¬†acids it doesn’t seem to increase the¬†immune system so again it’s¬†demand-driven that’s what’s interesting¬†it seems to be like everything in the¬†world of protein is demand-driven and¬†what I mean by that is if the immune¬†system is demanding it then absolutely¬†we need it but taking in more protein¬†not going to give you a better immune¬†system what makes things difficult is we¬†do not know when our immune system is¬†really being demanded a lot of right I¬†mean we could feel tired we could feel¬†fatigue but when you look at the case of¬†like the amino acids that are due a¬†branch chain the major major players in¬†the amino acid world they’re just kind¬†of just well if you’re deficient then¬†your immune system suffers but if you’re¬†up to snuff then your immune system is¬†fine but if you have more it doesn’t¬†really do a whole lot so it’s just¬†important to get enough protein in but¬†don’t try to stuff yourself with protein¬†it’s more like these esoteric amino¬†acids actually have a more powerful rule¬†but I want to dive in more because then¬†there’s one of my favorite amino acids¬†out there called taurine and taurine is¬†something that you can supplement with¬†individually that can play a big part in¬†your immune system so let’s check this¬†one out¬†satori is what is called a conditionally¬†essential amino acid meaning it is¬†essential but it’s also the largest sort¬†of free-roaming amino acid it makes up a¬†lot of different parts of our body¬†getting ranging from heart tissue all¬†the way down of course to the immune¬†system so it’s really an interesting¬†amino acid in and of itself¬†now our touring gets kind of interesting¬†but at the same time really really cool¬†is it binds us something called¬†hypochlorous acid okay now it creates¬†what’s called taurine chloramine which¬†has really powerful oxidative effects¬†within the body now when it comes down¬†to the immune system and inflammation¬†this touring chloramine has a very¬†powerful regulatory effect okay so think¬†of this your immune system reacts to¬†something so inflammation levels go up¬†okay well when your inflammation levels¬†go up this is a good thing to fight an¬†immune response I’d Milnes right in your¬†immune response but imagine if the¬†inflammation just continues on okay you¬†think about the case of different¬†infections a lot of times the issues¬†that you face are an overreaction of¬†inflammation the cytokine storm so much¬†in the way of cytokines and chemical¬†reactions that occur that you’re¬†actually feeling sick from the¬†inflammation your body’s immune system¬†result itself well we have Pro¬†inflammatory mediators that help control¬†that think about there’s a signaling¬†device that’s always at play to say hey¬†you’re overreacting too much or hate you¬†need to react more well if we don’t have¬†the the mediators there that our immune¬†system can just overreact well it turns¬†out that when chlorine is in¬†bound form this tutorial or I mean it¬†can help modulate that it helps regulate¬†the immune system so believe it or not¬†it doesn’t really play as big of a role¬†in terms of fighting off something but¬†it plays a bigger role in making sure¬†that your immune system doesn’t¬†overreact so it’s pretty darn cool when¬†you couple that with some of these other¬†immune as we’re talking about that’s¬†where things get pretty darn cool I¬†think you’re kind of seeing the gist in¬†general though just getting good amounts¬†of protein in I do want to stop for one¬†second and just say if you haven’t¬†already I encourage you to check out¬†thrive market down below in the¬†description now the reason that I¬†mentioned that is because I have¬†specific bundles of groceries through¬†thrive market because I have a really¬†good partnership with them with this¬†channel so I have like a keto box I have¬†a fasting box I have a thyroid support¬†box all with foods that I would¬†recommend so it’s like you’re going¬†grocery shopping with meats it’s kind of¬†cool anyhow so thrive markets a big¬†sponsor of this channel they are a huge¬†supporter they make all this content¬†possible but the best thing is they’ve¬†got a lot of good stuff it can get¬†shipped directly to your doorstep¬†they’re an online membership based¬†grocery store so I highly highly highly¬†recommend you check them out for things¬†like collagen what you’re going to talk¬†about a little bit for things like your¬†higher protein snacks that can go in the¬†pantry they even have some options in¬†terms of meat and fish and stuff like¬†that too so definitely check them out¬†after you finish watching this video¬†okay now here’s the part that I get¬†really excited about and that’s the¬†world of glutathione now glutathione¬†itself is not an amino acid okay¬†glutathione is a small protein peptide¬†okay so it’s made up of specific amino¬†as it’s made up of cysteine then it’s¬†made up of a glycine and then it’s made¬†up of glutamine okay so it’s these¬†different aminos now typically glutamate¬†you’re gonna have plenty of within the¬†body okay you’re also going to have a¬†good amount of glycine if you’re getting¬†and I’m like collagen coming in your¬†diet and stuff like that but let’s talk¬†about glutathione for just a second¬†before we get into the chemical makeup¬†or the amino makeup of it¬†okay glutathione is your body’s master¬†antioxidant so here’s what it does in¬†terms of the immune system the immune¬†system goes to work but it naturally is¬†going to create waste okay so the immune¬†system those immune cells because¬†they’re working hard to create a lot of¬†reactive oxygen species now an¬†antioxidant job is to donate an electron¬†so that it neutralizes these free¬†radicals¬†okay so envision your immune system¬†going to work going to war and it’s¬†creating a bunch of waste okay so¬†because it’s going to war there’s¬†just a bunch of casualties of war in¬†terms of just waste well that waste has¬†tickets has to get cleaned up¬†that’s where glutathione comes in that¬†was always different antioxidants you¬†can take and things like that but¬†glutathione is naturally endogenously¬†created and yes it can travel around yes¬†it’s in the mitochondria of just about¬†every cell but we also have it at the¬†liver level and this is where it’s¬†really really really important for you¬†for your immune system okay so at the¬†liver level it’s job is to essentially¬†take these toxins neutralize them and¬†allow them to be packaged in a way that¬†your body can excrete them however when¬†we’re immunocompromised or when our¬†immune system is working in overdrive we¬†deplete our glutathione stores now¬†generally speaking you can’t just take¬†glutathione supplementation you can but¬†here’s the problem since glutathione is¬†just three aminos okay again cysteine¬†glycine and glutamate what’s gonna¬†happen when you consume that okay when¬†you consume that orally it’s going to¬†just get broken down into its individual¬†amino acids and it’s going to go into¬†the labor pool just like it’s supposed¬†to that’s the biggest problem now you¬†can go down a rabbit hole with different¬†glutathione supplements that’s not what¬†this video is about okay so what ends up¬†happening is your glutathione levels¬†never really restore or they do¬†indirectly now once again¬†glutamate is pretty easy to get your¬†hands on okay as is a glycine again if¬†you’re consuming collagen and things¬†like that which I do recommend you¬†consume but cysteine ends up becoming¬†somewhat of the issue¬†okay now cysteine is going you’re going¬†to get it if you’re consuming good¬†amounts of protein but the hard part is¬†cysteine you usually need to consume a¬†lot of what is called Metheny so i’m¬†gonna go down a rabbit hole for just a¬†second but if you consume a bunch of¬†methionine¬†then you end up potentially increasing¬†your levels of what are called¬†homocysteine within the body¬†homocysteine is immunosuppressive in and¬†of itself and as a contributor to¬†cardiovascular disease you’ve probably¬†heard you don’t want high homocysteine¬†levels so what I’m saying here is if you¬†just consume a bunch of meat a bunch of¬†muscle means a bunch of protein¬†traditional protein you’re going to get¬†all the amino acids that you need but¬†you’re going to have so much in the way¬†of this man theanine that you could be¬†causing could be causing a potentially¬†negative issue down the line¬†if you have this collagen coming in then¬†you at least get an abundance of glycine¬†which can help the metabolism and the¬†recycling of homocysteine long story¬†short glycine aids in the overall¬†recycling of that homocysteine so you’re¬†not gonna have the toxic effects so what¬†does that all mean because I know it’s¬†complicated gobbledygook it means that¬†glutathione is dependent on methionine¬†in an indirect way and that’s fine so¬†you’re gonna have to increase protein to¬†make sure your glutathione stores are¬†good but at the same time you want to¬†make sure that you’re getting glycine in¬†to balance the Metheny¬†and that’s just super important for your¬†overall health when you’re looking at¬†your immune system now you can also take¬†things like in acetylcysteine and stuff¬†like that to support your glutathione¬†levels but it’s sort of a secondary¬†immune system that we need to think¬†about the immune system does the work we¬†still have to think about how we clear¬†it all out right so lastly I just want¬†to wrap up with collagen for just a¬†second now collagen is obviously not¬†just one amino acid it’s a kind of¬†protein but it links directly of course¬†with our gut mucosal layer okay so the¬†journal of clinical pathology did¬†publish a study that found in subjects¬†that had irritable bowel syndrome where¬†they have inflammatory bowel disease¬†they had significantly less collagen¬†type 4 concentrations within their gut¬†okay what that tells us is that whenever¬†there’s inflammation within the gut it¬†could be breaking down that collagen now¬†that collagen builds up that mucosal¬†layer which if we break down that¬†mucosal layer then of course we have a¬†weaker gut lining which means that our¬†immune system is not going to be as¬†protective it’s not going to do its job¬†as well so collagen does play a very¬†very important role when you look at¬†things like that so I end with reminding¬†you that like 60 to 80 percent of your¬†immune system your immune cells are¬†living in your gut so you should be¬†doing what you can to take care of the¬†gut and that’s probably the strongest¬†way you can just support your immune¬†system in general obviously we can go¬†down different rabbit holes there but as¬†always thank you for watching and thank¬†you for sticking with me as I’m filming¬†in a different capacity here in my¬†studio during these wild times I’ll see¬†you tomorrow¬†

Innate immune System

The innate immune system responds and destroys invading organisms – this includes changes that range from body temperature to white blood cell creation and the elevation of inflammation

Adaptive Immune System

The adaptive immune system provides what is “immunological memory” (think antibodies) that allow us to remember foreign pathogens so that we are better equipped to combat them the next time

Protein & the Immune System

Per the British Journal of Nutrition, amino acids (protein) do have crucial roles when it comes to the immune system

Amino acids regulate the activation of our immune cells (T lymphocytes, B lymphocytes, natural killer cells, and macrophages) AND assist in the creation of antibodies and cytokines

Some specific amino examples:

Alanine

Per the British Journal of Nutrition article, alanine is a key energy substrate of leucocytes

Arginine

Our bodies require arginine, specifically L-arginine, for white blood cell proliferation

Glutamine

Glutamine include helping to create and mobilize white blood cells and aiding in phagocytosis (ingestion of bacteria or other material by phagocytes)

Isoleucine

Isoleucine, one of the branched-chain amino acids, can be found in many cells of the immune system, such as lymphocytes, eosinophils, and neutrophils

Threonine

The thymus gland uses threonine to produce T lymphocytes, which then fight off infections

cysteine, glycine, and glutamate – Glutathione

THIS is what SUGAR Does to Your Immune System (Plot Twist!) – Thomas DeLauer

A meta analysis, published in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition looked at 83 research studies and concluded that a diet rich in fruits and vegetables actually improves immune function – conversely, a diet rich in processed foods and man-made sugars can suppress the immune system

HOWEVER, sugar may or may not act as an immunosuppressant, depending on different conditions in the body…

For a rule of thumb, excessive sugar consumption depletes the body’s nutrient balance, which triggers inflammation

Study – The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition

According to a 1973 study done by Loma Linda University, published in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, when you eat 100 grams of sugar, your white blood cells are 40% less effective at killing germs

Expanding Further

We don’t really feed or starve bacteria in the traditional sense, but consume or don’t consume food to combat the inflammation depending on the type of illness

Essentially, you want to starve a bacterial infection and feed a viral one

Additional

A study published in the The Journal of Clinical Investigation entitled, ‚ÄúSugar makes neutrophils RAGE: linking diabetes-associated hyperglycemia to thrombocytosis and platelet reactivity‚ÄĚ found that high blood glucose levels trigger neutrophil release of S100 calcium-binding protein A8/A9 (S100A8/A9), which binds to the receptor for advanced glycation end products (RAGE) on Kupffer cells, ultimately leading to increased thrombopoietin (TPO) production in the liver.
TPO causes megakaryocyte proliferation and increased platelet production.

Supplementation with glucose blocks ketogenesis – Bacterial sepsis is inducing reactive oxygen species-mediated cytotoxicity.

Ketones are able to stimulate potent FOXO transcription factors leading to the expression of endogenous antioxidants and mitigate the damage. Glucose inhibits ketogenesis and prevents the protective effect.

The mechanism of viral infection is different. Unlike bacteria, the injects its genetic material inside the infected cell and induces Endoplasmic Reticulum Stress.

Here, the blockage of glucose further worsens the ER stress and leads to tissue dysfunction. They further investigated the effect of ketones by creating mice deficient in PPAR which stimulates ketogenesis.

More specifically, you want help with THIS is What Fasting Does to Your Immune System (Please Use Caution Right Now)?

doing a fast longer than 24 hours when¬†you’re worried about getting sick is not¬†a good idea I’ve got some solid research¬†to back this up now shorter-term¬†fascinating like intermittent fasting¬†still seems to be good to go based upon¬†a lot of the research but longer-term¬†fasting you may want to wait now if¬†there are any videos of mine that you¬†pay close attention to and watch the¬†entire thing I really think this is one¬†because everything I’m going to describe¬†is going to paint a big picture for you¬†overall I don’t want you to think that¬†fasting is bad okay¬†longer-term fasting has tremendous¬†effects on the immune system but over¬†the long term not necessarily at the¬†acute short-term level in fact when you¬†fast for a few days white blood cell¬†count goes down twenty-eight percent but¬†it goes down twenty-eight percent and¬†then at the end of the fast you create¬†new white blood cells so yes with longer¬†term fasting you’re creating new white¬†blood cells which essentially gives you¬†a fresher immune system however during¬†the period of the fast you can be¬†somewhat immunocompromised so we may¬†want to shorten our fast I’m going to¬†give you some research but also in this¬†video I’m gonna help you break down how¬†you should tailor your fast for best¬†immune response at least in my opinion¬†hey I do want to ask that you hit that¬†red subscribe button and then also hit¬†that help icon because it’s got new¬†videos coming out every single day so¬†that Bell icon you want select all and¬†notifications that way you never miss a¬†beat I’m gonna quickly describe the¬†innate and adaptive immune system so it¬†makes some sense with fasting okay the¬†innate immune system is your body is¬†just response to a pathogen in a¬†widespread powerful way that is not very¬†targeted it’s an eight you’re built with¬†it and it just attacks pathogens okay¬†then you have what’s called the adaptive¬†immune system the adaptive immune system¬†is more of a laser targeted approach so¬†think of it as the infantry just going¬†in there and waging a war versus highly¬†specialized special forces that are¬†going in and know exactly what to target¬†okay that’s the difference there well¬†this plays into fasting because well¬†when you’re fasting you do decrease some¬†of your overall immune system activity¬†which can be very very good let me give¬†you an example most of us are walking¬†around with a low-grade chronic¬†inflammation which means like our¬†day-to-day life we have inflammation¬†which is why would we do a¬†fast we feel so good because we control¬†that inflammation a little bit okay but¬†we don’t always want to control that¬†inflammation when there’s a response¬†that we need to actually have okay so¬†that getting rid of that inflammation is¬†great except when we need it so if we¬†look at a study that was published in¬†the journal Cell who’s found that¬†circulating monocytes so circulating¬†immune cells would actually reduce¬†outside the bone marrow during a fast so¬†again this is great for people that just¬†have low-grade chronic inflammation or¬†they’re fighting a low-grade infection¬†but it’s not good if a pathogen is¬†coming in and we need those immune cells¬†present right right now a lot of this¬†has to do with some complicated stuff¬†known as like PPA our alpha which are¬†different signaling or receptor proteins¬†it’s pretty complicated stuff when you¬†get down to the genetic level of why¬†this occurs but I’ll make some more¬†sense of everything as well and then¬†also be giving you a practical solution¬†here in just a couple minutes you see¬†the length of time of your fast matters¬†tremendously okay so the journal Cell¬†also published another paper and it¬†found that t-cells which again are very¬†important immune cells would be reduced¬†during a fast a longer fast but the¬†difference in t-cell reduction between a¬†24-hour fast and a 36-hour fast was¬†tremendous showing that after 24 hours¬†we start to really crush our immune¬†system quite a bit during a fast the¬†scary thing is after we break the fast¬†it takes a while for those t-cells to¬†come back up takes a few days so the¬†point is that a longer term fast should¬†not really be done when you’re concerned¬†about contracting something or when¬†you’re exposed to pathogens but shorter¬†term fasts could still be good now I’ll¬†explain some more but then we look at¬†the big picture of the animal kingdom¬†right generally it’s been seen that well¬†when animals get sick they don’t eat¬†right so it has to have something to do¬†with our metabolic state right and¬†there’s definitely a degree of truth to¬†that you know it’s been touted in all¬†kinds of different things that you¬†should just not eat when you’re sick¬†well some researchers douve into that a¬†little bit more and again published in¬†the journal Cell it turns out that our¬†response to a bacterial infection versus¬†of virus is totally different in the way¬†of fasting so it turns out¬†that when you’re in a fasted state and¬†you have exposure to a bacterial¬†bacterial pathogen you actually come out¬†ahead so what the scientists did in this¬†case they took a bacterial pathogen and¬†they found that when that bacterial¬†pathogen inside a body was exposed to¬†glucose when there was glucose present¬†there was a higher mortality rate¬†showing that well if you’re not in a¬†fasted State bacterial infections can be¬†more damaging but with viruses it was¬†the opposite when a virus came in the¬†body and there was glucose present they¬†did better so when a virus was present¬†in the body in a fasted State there was¬†a higher mortality rate now again you¬†could expand more and more and more with¬†this it all has to do with what happens¬†when a virus enters your body you see a¬†virus doesn’t just affect tissues it¬†doesn’t just affect specific cells their¬†virus is interesting because it attacks¬†the immune cells too it invades the¬†immune cells which triggers what is¬†called a cytokine storm or cytokine¬†storm potato patato basically what this¬†means is the immune system has this over¬†acting chaos of communication that¬†triggers a massive inflammatory response¬†in a massive immune response well what¬†does this have to do with anything¬†because you would think that when you’re¬†fasting you’re gonna be quelling that¬†response right and normally you do¬†normally when you’re fasting you’re¬†reducing some of that inflammatory or¬†immune response so as published in the¬†frontiers of neuroscience there’s a¬†paper that showed that during a fasted¬†State if a virus comes in the body there¬†is an increase in that cytokine activity¬†an increase in that over communication¬†okay so normally you’d have some degree¬†of cytokine over communication but in a¬†fasted state when a virus came in there¬†was even more so it shows that fasting¬†is really good for bacterial infections¬†but not so good for viral infections or¬†viruses right again we’re talking about¬†longer term fasting so what can you do¬†with your short term fast obviously you¬†want to stay in shape you want to get¬†lean you want to do what you can for¬†your immune system and again we are¬†supporting the immune system by fasting¬†we just have to do it strategically so¬†if your short term fasting if you’re¬†concerned about pathogens are concerned¬†about contracting something you want to¬†keep your fasting probably between 16¬†and 20 hours and not push it beyond that¬†I am a huge fan of longer term fasting¬†but it needs to be done in a much more¬†controlled setting when you’re¬†the immunocompromised or you’re not¬†worried about getting sick so with¬†shorter term fasting what you do want to¬†be doing is making sure that during your¬†eating window you’re getting a lot of¬†protein in I say that because protein¬†does trigger gluconeogenesis¬†gluconeogenesis does create glucose in¬†the body and like the study that I¬†mentioned from the journal Cell where¬†glucose seems to actually help with¬†viral infections then you want to have a¬†little bit of glucose right so¬†gluconeogenesis could be your friend¬†plus protein has a thermogenic effect¬†it’s going to help keep you lean it’s¬†gonna help keep your lean muscle on you¬†there’s a bunch of reasons to keep your¬†protein relatively high after you break¬†your fast I would also recommend¬†alternate day fasting so you’re not¬†fasting every day and you’re not¬†consistently quelling your immune system¬†okay and then after you break your fast¬†it’s going to be very very very¬†important that you get a high degree of¬†antioxidants and a high degree of greens¬†in super super important because what’s¬†happening is after you break your fast¬†you’re going to have a degree of¬†reactive oxygen species a degree of¬†oxidative stress that’s occurring¬†because you just loaded yourself down¬†with calories and that’s gonna cause a¬†response sort of a waste response but¬†additionally immune cells that are¬†active generate their own waste¬†so I usually recommend getting as many¬†greens as you possibly can in one of the¬†greens that I recommend that I would¬†consider using is athletic greens I’ll¬†put a link down below this is a brand¬†that Joe Rogan recommends a lot of¬†people that are in my circle highly¬†highly recommend and something that I’ve¬†been using recently when it comes down¬†to my eating window of my fast some¬†people recommend having athletic greens¬†during your fast personally I like to¬†have it during my eating window because¬†it allows me to get a big infusion of¬†greens and a big infusion of vitamins in¬†that I think are gonna just lead to the¬†overall holistic approach that I’m after¬†when it comes down to breaking my fast¬†so I would highly recommend consuming¬†that not right when you break your fast¬†but maybe a couple hours after you break¬†your fast and that way you can just get¬†your antioxidants in you can get your¬†vitamins in because what I don’t want to¬†have happen and think about it like this¬†is you’re reducing your calories during¬†a fast right and then you have a small¬†finite amount of time to eat it is not a¬†good time to become potentially¬†deficient in vitamins and potentially¬†deficient in minerals during that day¬†it’s very easy to have happen I have a¬†lot of days where I break a fast and¬†I’ll eat my protein I’ll eat whatever I¬†need to eat¬†and then I get to the end of the day and¬†I’m like wow I didn’t really have any¬†greens because my eating window is only¬†for six hours so it’s very very¬†important that you do what you can to¬†get those greens and if you can get them¬†from veggies great otherwise I do¬†recommend athletic greens and there’s a¬†special link with special pricing down¬†below they are a supporter of this¬†channel because they know that I use¬†them when I fast so definitely check¬†them out ok let’s talk some really good¬†news here though with it’s what’s¬†happening during like an intermittent¬†fast right you have these other T cells¬†that are called memory T cells ok memory¬†T cells well they have memory and what¬†that means is they can recognize a¬†pathogen and when they see that pathogen¬†they can go and they can kind of know¬†what to do they know the ropes so to¬†speak so that pathogen can get¬†neutralized a lot easier well when¬†you’re fasting these memory t-cells¬†actually go down during a fast which¬†sounds bad but not really because what¬†they found that they do is they rehome¬†in the bone marrow okay now when they¬†rehome in the bone marrow they get¬†stronger and their memory improves so¬†visualize it like this here’s kind of an¬†analogy you you go on a shorter-term¬†fast okay and you’ve got these amazing¬†memory T cells that are Special Forces¬†operators that can go out and do their¬†job but because you’re fasting they go¬†back to base they go to the bone marrow¬†for a little bit they go back to the¬†base and they recharge they get stronger¬†they take a nap maybe they do a little¬†workout maybe they eat some healthy food¬†right they go back and they rehome then¬†after you break your fast they release¬†out of the bone marrow stronger why¬†because they rested they rehome so these¬†memory t-cells get stronger so if we¬†have stronger memory t-cells then we¬†have a stronger ability to fight them¬†infections and pathogens that our body¬†has somewhat seen before so that’s¬†pretty wild stuff and that’s exactly¬†where fasting can improve everything and¬†I come back to that original study that¬†I talked about okay when you look at¬†white blood cells so just now I can¬†paint a bigger picture for this if you¬†go on like a three day fast and your¬†white blood cell levels go down during¬†the fast that’s a bad thing right there¬†you don’t want that you don’t want to be¬†succumbing to illness at that point in¬†time because your white blood cells are¬†down but when they do come back they¬†come back refresh¬†and they come back stronger and they¬†come back new so over the long haul¬†you’re doing your immune system a very¬†very solid benefit so I do not want the¬†wrong idea to come across with this¬†fasting is powerful for the immune¬†system¬†you just have to time it properly now¬†again when we look at the big picture of¬†controlling inflammation though¬†intermittent fasting like shorter term¬†fast can be really good at quelling¬†inflammation and I say that you know a¬†little bit loosely but realistically¬†when you look at a lot of the science¬†the presence of ketones which occur when¬†you are fasting are naturally sort of an¬†interrupter of what’s called nuclear¬†factor Kappa B so they can kind of¬†control the inflammatory response so if¬†you’re already sick sometimes ketones¬†can actually be your friend sometimes¬†intermittent fasting can be your friend¬†it’s just when that first initial¬†response is coming that you have to be¬†careful so I want to recap so everyone¬†just has a really solid picture here¬†rule number one no more than 24 hour¬†fast when you are concerned with getting¬†sick so during cold and flu season you¬†may want to limit the lengths of fats¬†that you do contrary to what people tell¬†you okay rule number two increase your¬†protein during your eating period I¬†would recommend increasing at about 20¬†to 25 percent quite frankly because¬†you’re trying to get a extra protein for¬†recovery but be glucose to get converted¬†from that protein okay rule number three¬†antioxidants quite frankly I don’t care¬†where you get them dark chocolate is a¬†good one¬†getting your greens in using athletic¬†greens if you want to using the link¬†down below however you plan to vitamin C¬†also very very very good time to consume¬†vitamin C because then you’re gonna¬†actually get good absorption because of¬†your insulin sensitivity after you break¬†a fast look at my stash of vitamin C all¬†different brands okay I just got my¬†hands on what I could get my hands on¬†rule number four is going to be making¬†sure that you’re hydrated and getting¬†good minerals in if you do do any kind¬†of intermittent fasting minerals are¬†really the root and the core of a lot of¬†our immune system okay there’s different¬†mineral responses so I encourage you to¬†look into taking magnesium look into¬†taking a little bit of copper and making¬†sure that you’re also getting your¬†vitamin C and since they all work in¬†tandem of course vitamin D is important¬†other videos on that and a lot of people¬†are probably wondering about exercise¬†during this time as well I would¬†recommend that exercise still be done in¬†the fasted state because to some degree¬†it can mobilize a little bit more¬†glucose a lot of times even in a fasted¬†state if you workout you have again a¬†degree of gluconeogenesis that can help¬†circulate glucose which could¬†potentially help your innate immune¬†system do a better job at fighting off¬†pathogens so anyhow I hope this video¬†really resonated and that the solid¬†point got across and I hope you’re able¬†to watch everything in its entirety so¬†you don’t think that I’m anti fasting¬†because I’m certainly not as always keep¬†it locked in here my channel I’ll see¬†you soon¬†

THIS is What Fasting Does to Your Immune System (Please Use Caution Right Now) – Thomas DeLauer

Fasting and Immune System

Our immune system is dependent on two lines of protection. The first (innate) line involves cells like monocytes, neutrophils and killer T cell. These cells are effective killers, but they lack specificity. On contrary adaptive immune cells, T cells and B cells, have special receptors embedded in their membranes which allow them to specifically bind to a given pathogen and match the response effectively. Same as all other cells in the body, immune cells need energy, therefore it could be argued that not providing your immune cells with energy might weaken you.

Such a mechanism is suggested by a study published in the journal Cell. Researchers reported that fasting is reducing levels of circulating monocytes. Monocytes are part of the immune system and very potent inducers of inflammation. This mechanism was facilitated via the AMPK pathway which acts as an energy sensor as it is activated by an increased amount of ADP which indicates a shortage of energy characteristic for fasting. AMPK pathway then triggers the PPAR pathway. This is a well-known pathway in the fasting community as it regulates a number of genes involved in fat utilization. In this context, PPAR also has an effect on mobilization of monocytes outside of bone marrow (BM) because it halts the release of monocytes outside of bone marrow where a substantial part of all our immune cells are is generated. This reduction of circulating monocytes is certainly good news for someone fighting low-grade chronic inflammation, but it can also compromise our ability to fight acute infection.

The mechanism of viral infection is different. Unlike bacteria, the virus injects its genetic material inside the infected cell and induces Endoplasmic Reticulum Stress. In here, the blockage of glucose further worsens the ER stress and leads to tissue dysfunction. They further investigated the effect of ketones by creating mice deficient in PPAR which stimulates ketogenesis.

A study published in Frontiers in Neuroscience examined if intermittent fasting (IF) influence cytokine levels during infection. It was found that the injection of viral particles after intermittent fasting resulted in a significant increase in circulating levels of cytokines and worsened the immune response. These results suggest that IF exacerbates the response to viral infection and coincides with previously shown research where low glucose levels were reported to compromise the ability to fight viral infection.

From the aforementioned studies, it seems like fasting is not making our immune any stronger when it comes to viral infections. On the other hand, the effect of ketones in fighting bacterial infection is beneficial. Now we will show that fasting possesses the ability to remodel our immune system.

In a study published in Stem Cell, they reported that 3-day fast reduces the number of white blood cells by 28%. However, during refeeding, the levels are restored. This means that the pool of your white blood cells (WBC) is renewed which itself brings benefit. Majority of immune cells are produced in bone marrow from haematopoietic stem cells (HSC). It was found that the switch from carbohydrates towards fat and ketone metabolism stimulates the production of new WBC. Mainly because the insulin growth factor 1 pathway is suppressed during fasting.

Fasting is not a one-time, quick immune stimulator. All the beneficial effects are also observed after refeeding. During the fast itself, the immunity might be compromised, especially in fasts longer than 24 hours.

We NEED Zinc, Magnesium, Vitamin D & Vitamin C for Our Immune System (ASAP)

New To Keto But Want To Grow Your Knowledge?

More specifically, you want help with We NEED Zinc, Magnesium, Vitamin D & Vitamin C for Our Immune System (ASAP)?

this is not just a list of vitamins and¬†minerals to take because their immune¬†boosting no this is about a chain¬†reaction that occurs with each and every¬†vital nutrient mineral along that¬†process okay you require one mineral for¬†the function of another vitamin and vice¬†versa and then they get depleted so¬†anyhow you have to understand this root¬†cause of your immune system you have to¬†understand it and we’re gonna break it¬†down very simply with four very critical¬†vitamins and minerals that are all¬†involved for each other make sure you do¬†hit that red subscribe button if you got¬†daily videos coming out and I want you¬†to hit that little Bell icon to turn on¬†notifications so you never ever miss a¬†beat our live broadcast or our daily¬†video and a huge shout out to perfect¬†Kido so there’s a link down below¬†they’ve sponsored this video but the¬†cool thing is right now during these¬†kind of wild times they’ve made it¬†possible for people to get their hands¬†on some really good pantry staples so¬†they’ve got some good low carb low sugar¬†no sugar options for you to stock your¬†pantry with at a special discount and¬†they’re also making this channel¬†possible right now through this pretty¬†chaotic time so big thank you to your¬†perfect keto and make sure you check¬†them out for special pricing on some¬†cookies on some collagen on some bars¬†all things low carb low sugar related so¬†check them out after you watch this¬†video okay let’s start with vitamin C¬†which has been quite honestly talked¬†about a lot right now so I won’t spend a¬†ton of time on it but I’ll give you the¬†basic gist of it our immune cells have¬†little pumps on the membrane on the¬†outside of it that pump in vitamin C¬†when we are in need our immune cells¬†don’t use vitamin C unless they get¬†called upon unless they get activated¬†and when they do get activated¬†boy do they get activated because they¬†can absorb literally a hundred times the¬†vitamin C content that’s in our blood¬†plasma level so they just soak up all¬†that vitamin C like crazy that’s why¬†when you get sick or when you’re¬†stressed out your vitamin C levels in¬†your blood¬†plummet because your immune cells just¬†soak them up immediately so basically¬†like a fuel for your immune cells now we¬†have to remember to is the more¬†ferocious the specific immune cell the¬†more vitamin C it needs for example if¬†you have a cell that’s right on the¬†front lines that’s really designed to go¬†neutralize an attacker it’s going to use¬†more vitamin C it’s more powerful it’s a¬†bigger monster so it takes in more¬†vitamin C right that’s the interesting¬†thing and so if it’s a more powerful¬†virus your body’s gonna demand more¬†vitamin C it’s really plain and simple¬†so when you’re stressed or when you’re¬†tired or immunocompromised your cells¬†are requiring a little bit more vitamin¬†C so that’s why it’s more important to¬†take a decent amount of it I usually¬†recommend that you kind of use your own¬†guidelines there personally¬†I take anywhere north of 5,000¬†milligrams per day but that’s just me¬†now what’s really important to know is¬†that vitamin C fuels your immune cells¬†but your immune cells are useless¬†without vitamin D this is where you have¬†to pay close close attention vitamin D¬†is what mobilizes our immune cells I¬†want you to think of this for one second¬†the immune cells travel through the¬†bloodstream they identify a pathogen¬†let’s say they see a virus so they see¬†the virus and then they stick out a¬†little antenna and then antenna is a¬†vitamin D receptor so it’s kind of like¬†this the reconnaissance soldier goes out¬†he finds an enemy and then he hides¬†behind a rock and pops open his little¬†comm unit and he calls in for backup¬†via vitamin D but if you don’t have¬†vitamin D nothing ever gets activated¬†he’s not able to reach the immune system¬†so this happens a lot if we’re deficient¬†in vitamin D whereas the immune system¬†begins to notify that there’s an¬†attacker but there’s no vitamin D to¬†actually complete the signal so without¬†vitamin D immune cells remain naive they¬†never truly mobilize so at that point¬†what good is vitamin C if vitamin C only¬†fuels immune cells that are mobilized¬†really without vitamin D vitamin C is¬†kind of useless and then it gets even¬†more complicated vitamin C is needed for¬†vitamin D conversion and there’s a study¬†that was published in the journal¬†nutrition that found this to be pretty¬†darn interesting they found that vitamin¬†C influences enzyme known as 125 d3¬†hydroxylase this is the enzyme that¬†converts vitamin d into its usable form¬†so without vitamin C we don’t have the¬†enzyme that allows vitamin D to be¬†utilized in its actual active form holy¬†cow¬†so it took 10 subjects and they¬†identified that their serum levels of¬†vitamin d3 went up quite significantly¬†if they took in vitamin C how about them¬†apples so vitamin C is required for¬†vitamin D and then vitamin D is required¬†to mobilize the immune system and then¬†the immune system needs vitamin C again¬†so you see how they kind of¬†work together right so vitamin C isn’t¬†really worth the orange that you’re¬†getting it out of without vitamin D but¬†now things get even crazier okay so we¬†know vitamin C is important we know that¬†we need to make sure we’re getting¬†vitamin D but in order to convert¬†vitamin D once again and actually¬†metabolize it¬†we need magnesium when we convert¬†vitamin D we deplete our magnesium¬†stores and guess what we’re already¬†depleted in magnesium a large percentage¬†of people at least in the Western world¬†are very very depleted in magnesium¬†because our soil is depleted in it it’s¬†involved in 400 different enzymatic¬†processes it is a cofactor for so many¬†things¬†the converting enzymes just can’t do¬†their job without magnesium so magnesium¬†is drained and used up when we’re¬†converting vitamin D however it’s¬†required for vitamin D so you see the¬†problem here right so we need magnesium¬†then we need vitamin D then we need¬†vitamin C and it’s all this chain¬†reaction in fact it’s kind of funny when¬†you look at some patients that are given¬†vitamin D via their doctors right they¬†tell them to take two item in D and then¬†they measure their blood levels they¬†find their vitamin D never went up well¬†what’s happening there they’re taking a¬†vitamin D supplement but their vitamin D¬†levels aren’t rising because they’re¬†deficient in magnesium so the vitamin D¬†they’re taking in is it doing diddly¬†squat because it doesn’t have the¬†cofactor to actually allow the enzymes¬†to be there to allow that vitamin D¬†become usable we need magnesium as the¬†underlying mineral for all of this to¬†happen for our immune system to truly¬†work I usually recommend probably¬†between 4 and 800 milligrams of¬†magnesium per day I’ll go ahead and put¬†a link down below to my favorite¬†magnesium as well the next piece we have¬†to talk about operates kind of parallel¬†which is zinc we know that zinc is¬†important for the immune system but a¬†lot of us don’t really know why it’s not¬†that it helps the immune system per se¬†it’s that it keeps the immune system and¬†inflammation kind of in check so Ohio¬†State did some interesting stuff and¬†this is where we all kind of got this¬†information so what it looks like is¬†when you get sick you have inflammation¬†that occurs¬†well inflammation signals the expression¬†at a genetic level of a zinc transporter¬†if that doesn’t prove that we need zinc¬†when we’re sick I don’t know what does¬†now we have a natural genetic process to¬†automatically create a zinc transport¬†the moment that our body recognizes¬†sickness or inflammation so it’s the job¬†of that zinc transporter to bring the¬†sink into the cell to help control the¬†inflammation a little bit more a lot of¬†the issues that we face when we’re sick¬†are just both quite honestly collateral¬†damage from inflammation we get sick we¬†have inflammation that comes in and¬†causes a big problem and in the¬†collateral damage from the inflammation¬†causes a bigger problem ie things like¬†pneumonia things like that right that’s¬†a big problem well zinc somehow¬†interferes with what’s called nuclear¬†factor Kappa B it interferes with the¬†process so we don’t have too much¬†inflammation so the inflammation is¬†Corral to where it should be and doesn’t¬†go crazy running through our body¬†causing other secondary issues and¬†potential co-infections it’s pretty cool¬†stuff¬†zinc really is much more powerful than¬†we think so between those four we’ve got¬†the perfect little harmony now as an¬†added side note and I’ll just mention¬†this for a second B vitamins like b6 and¬†b12 are also very very very important¬†primarily because they build antibodies¬†so don’t neglect your B vitamins but¬†quite frankly unless you’re really poor¬†with your diet you’re probably still¬†getting B vitamins in and probably not¬†much of a need to supplement with them¬†so vitamin C vitamin D magnesium and¬†zinc that is how you bolster and support¬†your own inherent immune system see you¬†tomorrow¬†

We NEED Zinc, Magnesium, Vitamin D & Vitamin C for Our Immune System (ASAP) – Thomas DeLauer

Immune cells need vitamin C, but without vitamin D T cells remain dormant. However, taking vitamin D will deplete magnesium stores. Zinc also has a positive influence on the immune system, as does copper.Iron does have a role in immune system function, but you cannot excrete excess, which can cause damage to organs, and it competes with magnesium for oxygen. So, in theory, taking too much iron could reduce magnesium, which could then render vitamin D useless, which would ultimately mean taking vitamin C would be pointless in regards to T cells as they wouldn’t be able to activate and utilize vitamin C.

Vitamin C

Immune cells have active vitamin C transporter molecules embedded in their membranes that actively pump the vitamin into the cells when more vitamin C is required

Vitamin C produces beneficial effects on virtually all of the immune system’s cells

Study – Nutrients

In 2014, a study of vitamin C published in the journal Nutrients found that vitamin C supplementation can reduce the incidence of the common cold in otherwise healthy people with chronic stress or obesity

During the study, 85% of placebo recipients experienced a cold compared with just 47% of supplemented subjects

Vitamin D

When a T cell is exposed to a foreign pathogen, it extends a signaling device (vitamin D receptor) with which it searches for vitamin D

This means that the T cell must have vitamin D or activation of the cell will cease – if the T cells cannot find enough vitamin D in the blood, they won’t activate

Vitamin C Needed to Convert Vitamin D into its Active Form

A study published in the Journal of Nutrition revealed that Vitamin C plays a critical role in Vitamin D metabolism

It was found that while Vitamin C deÔ¨Āciency ‚Äúpotentiated effects of Vitamin D deprivation and impaired a restorative action of Vitamin D‚ÄĚ

Vitamin C has been shown to specifically to influence the activity of 25(OH)D3-1-hydroxylase, the enzyme responsible for the transformation of 25(OH)D3 to 1,25(OH)2D3 (active form of D3)

Magnesium

A review published in The Journal of the American Osteopathic Association found Vitamin D can’t be metabolized without sufficient magnesium levels

Magnesium is involved in hundreds of biological reactions, including the enzymes that play a role in vitamin D metabolism – vitamin D can’t be converted into its active form, calcitriol, without sufficient amounts of magnesium
https://bmcmedicine.biomedcentral.com/articles/10.1186/1741-7015-11-229
Zinc

When a pathogen is recognized, NF-őļB is activated and enters the nucleus, a gene is expressed that produces a zinc transporter called ZIP8

After cell entry, zinc is then directed to and binds to a different protein in the NF-őļB pathway – when this happens, it halts any further activity in that process
In other words, zinc helps prevent excess inflammation

It’s essentially a feedback loop, stopping the process getting out of hand
