Virus, Bacteria & Parasites
We all know plenty about the common cold. It’s called common for a reason, being the most frequent infectious disease in humans. Adults average two to three bouts a year and children between six and twelve. There’s no cure, so treatment focuses on management of the symptoms – and on preventing illness in the first place.
The common cold is just one of the illnesses humans experience as the result of ‘germs’ – foreign invaders in the form of viruses, bacteria and parasites. Influenza, commonly referred to as “the ‘flu”, is another, potentially very serious viral illness; bacterial infections can include strep throat and gastroenteritis; and parasites, often ingested via contaminated food or water, can cause a variety of unpleasant symptoms and even serious illness.
Viruses, bacteria and parasites live everywhere in the world around us. It’s important to remember that not all germs are harmful. For instance, our bodies play host to a large colony of beneficial bacteria which actually help protect us against other disease-causing organisms. However, it’s vital that we protect ourselves against those germs that do cause infection and disease.
Our immune system is the body’s defence against infection. The immune system musters an army of antibodies, white blood cells, and other mechanisms to round up the invaders and neutralise them. And like any army, your immune system works better when it is well-fed.
Colostrum is one proven nutritional supplement for immune system health. Recent research suggests that for some people, colostrum may in fact be a better treatment for preventing infectious disease than vaccination. Vaccines, while largely beneficial, do carry the risk of side effects which can occasionally be severe, so many people are drawn to more natural methods of boosting immunity to common infectious diseases. Bovine colostrum is packed with powerful antibodies called immunoglobulins, as well other biological compounds important to a healthy immune system. As well as being an effective supplement and regulator for the immune system, by taking MIP Colostrum daily you benefit from improved gut health and nutrient uptake and a boost to general wellbeing, helping you ‘fight the good fight’ against viruses, bacteria and parasites.
Please note that in order to reap the maximum immunity benefits from MIP Colostrum, you should use it consistently on a daily basis. As every person is different, it may take up to three months to see all the benefits of this powerful health supplement, but rest assured that it is busy at work from the very first day.
