Allergies happen when your body’s immune system overreacts or misfires in the presence of certain substances (termed the ‘allergen’) that aren’t normally considered to be dangerous to the body. Hypersensitivity to one or more allergen causes your immune system to react as though it’s being invaded by something unwelcome and nasty, calling up the ‘big guns’ to neutralise it. One of those weapons is a substance called histamine, which is the cause of those unwelcome, unpleasant and sometimes very serious allergy symptoms – sneezing, a runny nose, itchy eyes, or in more severe cases breathing trouble, anaphylaxis and worse.
There are plenty of drugs on the market to reverse the effects of an allergic reaction – antihistamines and decongestants block the action of histamine and help to clear up the swelling that it causes. However these drugs are not without their side effects, and antihistamines can potentially suppress your immune system over the long term. What if you could tackle your allergies where they start?
MIP Colostrum is a scientifically proven supplement that supports the immune system and reduces the symptoms of allergy. The reason MIP Colostrum is such a good supplement for allergies is thanks to a substance known as proline-rich polypeptide (PRP) or Colostrinin. PRP is abundant in bovine colostrum, which is four times richer in immune factors than human colostrum and has the added benefit of compounds that protect these active ingredients from destruction in our digestive systems. PRP in MIP Colostrum regulates our immune systems much the same way as the hormones produced by our own thymus glands. It’s capable of ‘dampening down’ an overactive immune system, the sort of circumstances that can lead to allergic reactions and autoimmune disorders, by inhibiting the overproduction of lymphocytes and T-cells; it also stimulates an underactive immune system to fight pathogens. PRP is supported by immunoglobulins, cytokines and lymphokines, all very important immune factors in their own right. In effect, bovine colostrum provides a ‘blueprint’ for the newborn calf’s healthy immune system, using immune factors that are fully compatible with the human body. MIP Colostrum is a powerful tool for ‘resetting’ your hypersensitive immune system and relieving the discomfort and stress of allergies.
