Antibiotics May No Longer Work, But These Herbal Remedy Boost Immune System and Totally Eliminate Staph Aureus, STD, Toilet Infections

Antibiotics May No Longer Work, But These Herbal Remedy Boost Immune System and Totally Eliminate Staph Aureus, STD, Toilet Infections

  • April 10, 2021

Doctors and other medical institutions, have warned that mere toilet infections, if not properly treated can cause staphylococcus aureus, pelvic inflammatory disease (PID), which is one of the major culprit responsible for infertility.

To make it even worse, staphylococcus, STDs and other urinary tract infections comes with painful symptoms such as;

wormlike movement in the body
itching of private part
discharge at the tip of the penis
vaginal discharge
burning sensation in the body
frequent urination

If you are experiencing any of these serious infections, then you are not alone. My husband and I suffered from similar problems for about 3 years. We tested positive to staphylococcus aureus.

So we visited several hospitals, tried expensive antibiotics and used lots of products bought from networking companies just so we could get rid of this staph…

But sadly, the stubborn infection remained in our 
body system for 3 years!

At that time, the infection affected my fertility, destroyed our immune system and made us suffer painful symptoms.
After several trial and errors, I continued searching for a permanent cure until I came in contact with an old time friend, who was a health expert that has now relocated to Canada.

She recommended a NAFDAC Approved herbal treatment that completely cures Staphylococcus, urinary tract infections, and other STDs like Gonorrhea, Syphillis etc.

My advice for you is simple, here are the 3 main things I did to finally get rid of this stubborn staph infection:

1. Stop using antibiotics: Most of the antibiotics drugs sold in pharmacy stores are now ineffective to treat staph due to self-medication practices. Another reason is that staphylococcus infection is now resistant to most of these antibiotics. So, if my advice is stop wasting money on antibiotics.

Instead of antibiotics, lots of Nigerian men and women testify that this herbal remedy works very effectively to treat staphylococcus infections in few weeks of using it.

2. Eat these foods like garlic, lemon, ginger, and honey that are widely known to fight infections, they are natural anti-microbial medicines, and works exceptionally well for boosting immune system.

3. Take herbal medicines that help flush off infections from your body system.
Believe it or not, taking Antibiotics and injection can only suppress symptoms of staph infection, the solution is you have to take herbal medicines that will flush those bacteria from your blood stream.

But the problem is, right now, there are lots of fake and ineffective herbal drugs out there posed only to scam victim of their money.

And I hope you don’t lose your health and money like I did back then trying lots of them.
That is why, one of the herbal treatments that I recommend which helped my family and I cure staphylococcus and other drug-resistant infections is NAFDAC Approved and certified.

As at now, lots of Nigerian men and women have testified that the herbal remedy is highly effective, completely cures staph infection and eliminates painful symptoms within few weeks.

Lots of Nigerian couples are already raving about this herbal remedy, and they have sent in testimonials about how it completely cures staph infections, eliminates painful symptoms, boost immune system and detox your body off harmful toxins within few weeks of using it.

At this point, let me introduce you to the Herbal Treatment Solution that worked for me, and helped me completely cure infections without any side effects at all…

Ultra Immune Defense System Review (Protect Wellness) Legit?

Ultra Immune Defense System Review (Protect Wellness) Legit?

  • April 9, 2021

Ultra Immune Defense System is a package of immune defense supplements sold online through ImmuneDefenseKit.com.

For $129, you get one bottle each of Ultra Immune’s Daily Defense, Daytime Boost, and Bedtime Boost supplements.

Is Ultra Immune Defense System worth the price? Does it really protect your immunity? Find out everything you need to know about this all-in-one immune supplement kit today in our review.

What is Ultra Immune Defense System?

Ultra Immune Defense System is a package of three immune support supplements. The three supplements support your immune system during the day, in the morning, and at night.

By taking all three supplements daily, you can purportedly give your immune system round-the-clock protection.

Each supplement in Ultra Immune Defense System is priced at $39 to $69 when sold individually. By buying the Ultra Immune Defense System kit, you get one bottle of each supplement for $129.

Ultra Immune Defense System is sold online by Protect Wellness, a San Ramon, California-based company. That company claims that each supplement is doctor-formulated, which means a doctor created each supplement in the Ultra Immune Defense System kit.

Protect Wellness describes Ultra Immune Defense System as a “synergistic immune system support” package that will “protect, activate, and reinforce” your immune system.

Ultra Immune Defense System Features & Benefits

Each of the supplements in the Ultra Immune Defense System offers similar features and benefits. Here are some of the benefits of the immune support kit, according to the official website:

  • Targeted immune support complex
  • Support during immune challenges
  • Strengthens immune system function
  • Maintains healthy inflammatory balance
  • Supports respiratory and bronchial health
  • Promotes healthy cytokine production
  • Formulated by a physician

In other words, Ultra Immune Defense System claims to support your immune system in multiple ways. By supporting your immune system, the supplements could reduce the risk of getting sick, speed up your recovery from illness, and provide other noticeable benefits.

Ultra Immune Defense System Ingredients

Ultra Immune Defense System uses ingredients linked to immune function. Here are key ingredients in each supplement and how they work, according to the official website:

According to the official website, Vitamin A can help maintain cellular barrier integrity while providing other immune benefits. It also stimulates cell-based immunity.

Vitamin C: Vitamin C is one of the best-known antioxidants in the natural world. Studies show that vitamin C generates reactive oxygen species used within white blood cells to kill invading microbes.

Zinc: Zinc inhibits viral replication while decreasing lower respiratory infections, according to Protect Wellness. People who are deficient in zinc tend to have a worse immune function.

Vitamin D: Vitamin D helps to regulate the immune system through T-cell activity. Vitamin D also supports white blood cells, natural killer cells, granulocytes, monocytes, and more. Like zinc deficiency, vitamin D deficiency is linked with poor immune function.

Astragalus Root: Astragalus root has been used in traditional Chinese medicine for centuries. Studies show it supports the activity of cytotoxic lymphocytes while improving antibody production, according to Protect Wellness.

Other Ingredients: Ultra Immune Defense System supplements also contain other ingredients linked to multiple studies’ immune function. The supplements contain quercetin, black elderberry, N-acetyl-cysteine (NAC), EGCG, and melatonin, among other ingredients designed to offer targeted benefits.

image3

What’s Included with Ultra Immune Defense System?

Ultra Immune Defense System includes three immune-supporting supplements, including:

  • Ultra Immune Daily Defense
  • Ultra Immune Daytime Boost
  • Ultra Immune Bedtime Boost

The three supplements target immunity in different ways. Daily Defense targets your all-day immunity, giving your body the nutrients it needs to support immunity all day long. Daytime Boost targets your immunity during the morning and day, and you take it every morning to support immunity. To protect your immune system overnight, Ultra Immune Defense System contains Bedtime Boost, which helps your body recharge and restores itself overnight.

We’ll break down each of the three supplements below, including how they work, what’s inside them, and what they do.

About Ultra Immune Daily Defense

image7

Ultra Immune Daily Defense is a daily nutritional supplement that supports your immune system from morning into night. You take two tablets in the morning; then, users have “synergistic immune system support” all day long.

Protect Wellness claims the supplement contains nutrients that are proven to support and strengthen your body’s immune response. They also claim to use the nutrients in the perfect dosages to enhance your body’s natural defenses.

By taking Daily Defense every day, you can purportedly enjoy benefits like targeted immune system support, support during immune challenges, stronger immune system function, healthy inflammatory balance, support for bronchial and respiratory health, and healthy cytokine production, among other benefits.

Protect Wellness also claims that a physician formulated the supplement – something we don’t see with other nutritional supplements. That means a doctor has chosen the right ingredients at the right dosages to strengthen your immunity.

To achieve these benefits, Daily Defense contains the following ingredients:

  • 1,500mcg of vitamin A (167% DV)
  • 125mg of vitamin D (625% DV)
  • 1,500mg of vitamin C (1,667% DV)
  • 30mg of zinc (273% DV)
  • 500mg of astragalus root extract
  • 500mg of quercetin

The three vitamins are crucial for immune function. People who are deficient in vitamin D and A, for example, tend to have weaker immune systems. The same can be said for zinc, which is crucial for immune function and overall health. Vitamin C, astragalus root, and quercetin all support healthy inflammation throughout your body, working as antioxidants to neutralize free radicals. Vitamin C is one of the most abundant natural antioxidants globally, and studies show it can help support your immune function.

About Ultra Immune Daytime Boost

image2

Ultra Immune Daytime Boost claims to give your body the nutrients and herbal extracts it needs “to enhance natural killer cell activity, antibody response and T-cell activation,” leading to a better immune response.

By taking Daytime Boost daily, you can purportedly support your body’s ability to respond to immune challenges. The supplement is marketed as a daily immune support supplement.

According to Protect Wellness, Daytime Boost has identical benefits to Daily Defense. The company claims the supplement can support your body during immune challenges, strengthen immune system function, help you maintain a healthy inflammatory balance, and promote healthy cytokine production, among other benefits.

To achieve these benefits, Daytime Boost contains ingredients similar to what we see in Daily Defense. Key ingredients in Daytime Boost include:

Vitamins: Daytime Boost contains vitamin A, vitamin D, and vitamin C, delivering 83% to 833% of your daily value (DV).

Minerals: Daytime Boost contains zinc, a proven immune booster. Studies show that people who are deficient in zinc tend to have worse immune function than people who get their recommended daily dose of zinc.

Herb and Plant Extracts: Daytime Boost contains strong doses of various herb and plant extracts, including 600mg of N-acetyl-l-cysteine, 500mg of quercetin, 250mg astragalus root extract, and 125mg of elderberry extract, among others. Studies show that elderberry extract can reduce the duration of cold and flu symptoms. Elderberry may work because it’s rich in vitamin C.

You take three tablets of Daytime Boost daily to support immune function.

About Ultra Immune Bedtime Boost

image1

Ultra Immune Bedtime Boost claims to support immunity overnight, supporting your body’s ability to restore and regenerate itself as you sleep.

Poor sleep means poor immune function. Studies show that people who don’t get enough sleep tend to have worse immune function than people who have plentiful amounts of sleep. Many sleep aids are now marketed as immune boosters for that reason.

Bedtime Boost contains one of the most popular sleep aid ingredients in the supplement industry: melatonin. Each serving contains 5mg of melatonin, which is considered a strong dose. Studies show that melatonin works at doses as low as 0.5mg, helping you fall asleep and get a more restful sleep.

Your body produces melatonin when it’s nighttime. When it’s time to fall asleep, your body makes melatonin according to your sleep-wake cycle (your circadian rhythm). Some studies show that you can give your body external melatonin (in the form of a melatonin supplement) to kickstart this process, helping you fall asleep more easily.

To support your immune system as you sleep, Bedtime Boost contains the following ingredients:

N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine: Also found in Daytime Boost, this ingredient is linked to overall health and wellness benefits. Some studies show it supports immunity. Also abbreviated as NAC, n-acetyl-l-cysteine is used by your body to build antioxidants. Antioxidants can protect your cells from damage – like inflammation. It’s like a precursor to antioxidants.

Quercetin and Elderberry: Bedtime Boost contains 500mg of quercetin and 250mg of elderberry. Quercetin is linked to antioxidant, anti-inflammatory effects, while elderberry is rich in vitamin C, another popular antioxidant. Studies show that taking elderberry can reduce the duration of cold and flu symptoms.

Melatonin: The most noticeable ingredient in Bedtime Boost may be melatonin. Each serving contains 5mg of melatonin to help you fall asleep and stay asleep.

You take two tablets of Bedtime Boost within 30 to 60 minutes of falling asleep. The ingredients claim to support your immune system overnight while also making it easier to fall asleep.

Ultra Immune Defense System Pricing

Ultra Immune Defense System is priced at $129 for a package with all three supplements. You can also buy the individual supplements separately.

Here’s how pricing breaks down through the official website:

  • Ultra Immune Defense System (1 x Daily Defense, 1 x Daytime Boost, and 1 x Bedtime Boost): $129
  • Ultra Immune Daily Defense: $59
  • Ultra Immune Daytime Boost: $69
  • Ultra Immune Bedtime Boost: $39

All prices include shipping to the United States.

Ultra Immune Defense System Refund Policy

Protect Wellness does not disclose its refund policy upfront. It’s unclear if the company offers refunds on its supplements.

Typically, most supplements come with a 30 to the 60-day refund policy. However, it’s unclear what type of refunds are available with the Ultra Immune Defense System.

Who Created Ultra Immune Defense System?

Protect Wellness labels each supplement in the Ultra Immune Defense System kit as “doctor-formulated,” which means a doctor created each supplement. That’s good – doctors do not formulate most supplements, and many supplements are backed by zero medical expertise whatsoever.

However, Protect Wellness does not disclose the doctors’ name, their medical qualifications, or even what specialty they are.

Diet and the immune system: What is the link?

Diet and the immune system: What is the link?

  • April 9, 2021

We may take it for granted that our diet can influence the way our immune systems work. But how and why does what we eat impact the immune response? In this Honest Nutrition feature, we investigate.

The immune system is a complex network that constantly works to protect the body from antigens, which have associations with pathogens, including bacteria, toxins, parasites, and viruses.

The immune system offers two lines of defense: innate immunity and adaptive immunity.

Innate immunity is the first line of defense and consists of physical barriers, such as the skin and mucous membranes and chemical and cellular defenses. The innate immune system is nonspecific because it reacts the same way to all foreign invaders.

If the innate immune system is ineffective against a potential threat, the adaptive immune system takes over.

The adaptive immune system consists of specialized blood cells and proteins that target the specific cause of infection. The adaptive immune system has a “memory,” which is why a person’s body becomes immune to specific illnesses after initial exposure.

A person’s immune system needs to function well for them to remain healthy. Certain illnesses, medications, and lifestyle choices, such as smoking and excessive drinking, can adversely affect immune function.

Research shows that a person’s diet can impact immune health as well.

Studies suggest that a person’s diet influences their immune system, like all other aspects of health.

For example, nutrition can affect the microbiome, gut barrier function, inflammatory processes, and white blood cell function, all of which impact immune function.

Dietary patterns and individual foods have associations with increased disease risk, greater risk of allergy, and impaired immune response.

Western-type diets tend to contain high levels of saturated fat, ultra-processed foods, added sugar and salt, and overall calories. This diet is often low in foods associated with better health, such as vegetables, fruits, and fatty fish, and has strong links to an increased risk of chronic disease.

Research suggests that Western-type diets induce inflammation and alter immune system function, promoting disease development.

In contrast, diets rich in whole foods, such as vegetables, fruits, nuts, legumes, and seafood, and low in ultra-processed foods can reduce disease risk and promote healthy immune function.

Additionally, a deficiency or insufficiency of nutrients essential to immune function, including vitamin D, zinc, and vitamin C, can also affect immune response.

Nutrient deficiencies may be more common in those consuming ultra-processed diets low in whole, nutrient-dense foods.

Although it is clear that dietary choices impact overall health, including immune function, the interaction between diet and immune health is highly complex. Scientists are still learning how the foods a person consumes may help or harm immune function.

Western-type diets tend to be high in refined carbohydrates, added sugars, saturated fat, and calories. This pattern of eating affects immune function in several ways.

Most of the foods in Western diets are ultra-processed and contain high levels of added sugar, which can promote inflammatory responses of the immune system.

For example, foods and beverages that significantly impact blood sugar levels, such as soda, candy, sugary cereals, and sugary baked goods, increase levels of inflammatory proteins, including tumor necrosis-alpha (TNF-alpha), C-reactive protein (CRP), and interleukin-6 (IL-6). They also interfere with the function of protective immune cells, including neutrophils and phagocytes.

A 2012 study that included 562 adults aged 85 years and older without diabetes found that the participants who had higher blood sugar levels had lower innate immune responses. They also had higher levels of CRP, which is a marker of inflammation.

Higher blood sugar levels have links to an impaired immune response in people with diabetes as well.

Also, diets high in added sugar and refined carbs may adversely alter gut bacteria, leading to dysbiosis, which involves digestive disturbances, such as bloating.

A healthy microbiome is essential to immune function because gut bacteria play a critical role in the development and function of the immune system.

Experts have also linked Western-type diets to an altered immune response due to high levels of saturated fat and added salt.

Studies indicate that diets high in saturated fat may promote inflammation, modify gut bacteria, and inhibit the functioning of white blood cells.

Diets high in added salt have links to excessive immune response, impaired inflammation regulation in the body, and an increased risk of certain autoimmune diseases, such as rheumatoid arthritis.

Western-type diets have links to an increased risk of developing several chronic diseases, including certain cancers, heart disease, and type 2 diabetes.

Researchers attribute this to the chronic low-grade inflammation and altered immune response that Western-type diets, sedentary lifestyles, and toxin exposure cause.

However, research investigating the relationship between diet and immune function is ongoing, and scientists do not entirely understand this complex relationship.

While a diet high in ultra-processed foods, added sugar, and excessive calories may lead to immune dysfunction, dietary patterns rich in whole, nutrient-dense foods are beneficial for immune function.

The Mediterranean diet is rich in vegetables, legumes, nuts, fruits, whole grains, olive oil, and other healthy foods. Research has shown that it can reduce disease risk, lower markers of inflammation, and beneficially modulate gut bacteria.

Diets high in fiber, such as the Mediterranean diet, promote the production of short-chain fatty acids (SCFAs), including acetate, propionate, and butyrate. SCFAs are end products of bacterial fermentation in the gut and have health benefits.

SCFAs act locally and systemically to modulate the immune response. They maintain the health of and improve the immune defensive function of the intestinal epithelium. This is an important part of the immune system that serves as a barrier against microorganisms. It also reduces the production of inflammatory proteins from immune cells.

Diets high in fruits, vegetables, olive oil, nuts, seeds, and fatty fish contain high levels of nutrients, such as vitamin A, vitamin C, zinc, vitamin D, B6, B12, copper, folate, iron, and selenium. The immune system needs these nutrients to function optimally.

Experts know that vegetarian-based diets reduce markers of chronic inflammation, such as CRP, fibrinogen, and IL-6. This might be partly due to the array of nutrients and nonnutritive components found in fruits and vegetables strengthening the immune system response.

Foods rich in healthy fats, fiber, vitamins, protein, minerals, and beneficial plant compounds help reduce systemic inflammation, promote healthy gut bacteria balance, reduce oxidative stress and cellular damage, and improve blood sugar and insulin sensitivity. All of these activities are essential for healthy immune function.

Additionally, studies show that supplementing the diet with nutrients including vitamin D, zinc, and vitamin C may help optimize immune function and reduce infection risk.

To support immune function, a person should concentrate on following a balanced dietary pattern rich in whole, nutrient-dense foods, especially plant foods, such as vegetables, fruits, legumes, nuts, and seeds. People should avoid or limit ultra-processed foods high in refined grains and added sugar.

It is essential to follow a healthy diet to ensure good immune function.

Studies show that while certain dietary patterns may lead to impaired immune function, other dietary patterns promote optimal immune function.

A dietary pattern low in ultra-processed foods and rich in whole, nutrient-dense foods, such as vegetables, fruits, fish, and legumes, protects against chronic disease risk and supports a healthy immune response.

Following a healthy dietary pattern and leading a lifestyle that includes stress reduction techniques, restful sleep, daily physical activity, and other healthy habits is the best way to support the immune system and reduce disease risk.

Time outside can boost immune system, reduce risk of heart disease and diabetes

  • April 9, 2021

MADISON, Wis. — Throughout April the Recipe for Health team is focused on being healthy within the environment, After all, April weather tends to allow for more time outdoors, and Earth day isn’t far off. While it’s no surprise that getting outside can be a good thing, SSM Health Physician Roopa Shah is talking the physical, mental, and emotional health benefits of exploring the great outdoors.

“Kids should be playing in the dirt and playing outside,” said Roopa, “because when you play outside you’re exposed to all these different microorganisms that really enhance your immune function. The more you’re exposed to, the more robust your immune function can become, and we all know how important that is right now as well.”

Other benefits from time spent outdoors include an improved circadian rhythm. Dr. Shah says your internal clock uses natural sunlight to run more efficiently, and can even improve your overall sleep. She also says the increased vitamin D helps reduce the risk of developing osteoporosis.

Dr. Shah also says a mere 10-15 minute nature walk reduces stress and anxiety as our brains are hardwired to hear the sounds of nature, which releases positive hormones while also reducing cortisol levels, which can reduce your risk of heart disease and diabetes.

Our time for kids: recipe for health team is asking what you want to hear about. Let us know what health topics you’re interested in, or share your family’s health story with us, online at ssmhealth.com/timeforkids.

Moffitt investigators identify STING gene methylation allows melanoma to evade the immune system

  • April 8, 2021

TAMPA, Fla. (April 8, 2021) — A dysfunctional immune system significantly contributes to the development of cancer. Several therapeutic strategies to activate the immune system to target cancer cells have been approved to treat different types of cancer, including melanoma. However, some patients do not show beneficial clinical responses to these novel and very promising immunotherapies. In a new article published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America, Moffitt Cancer Center researchers demonstrate how an important defect in STING gene expression in melanoma cells contributes to their evasion from immune cell detection and destruction.

Several different mechanisms have been discovered that allow cancer cells to avoid immune cell detection and destruction, including defective T cell function, losses in expression of key proteins on tumor cells and defective cell signaling in both immune and tumor cells. An important signaling pathway that contributes to interactions between tumor cells and immune cells is the interferon signaling pathway. The interferon pathway increases expression of molecules that allow tumor cells to be recognized and killed by immune cells. One of the key molecules in the interferon signaling pathway is STING, which is activated by the protein cGAS.

Moffitt researchers previously demonstrated that STING activity is commonly suppressed and altered in a subset of melanomas, which prevents the ability of these tumor cells to be targeted by the immune system. The research team wanted to further the understanding of the importance of alterations in STING signaling in melanoma and determine how STING expression becomes suppressed. They focused on a process called epigenetic modification during which methylation groups are added to the DNA regulatory regions of genes, resulting in genes being turned off.

The researchers performed a series of laboratory experiments and discovered that the DNA regulatory region of the STING gene is highly modified by methylation groups resulting in loss of STING gene expression in certain melanoma cell lines. Importantly, they confirmed these findings in patient clinical samples of early and late-stage melanomas and showed similar methylation events and loss of expression of the upstream STING regulator cGAS.

Next, the researchers demonstrated that it is possible to reactivate expression of STING and/or cGAS with a demethylating drug or genetic approaches that overcome methylation. These interventions successfully turned on STING functional activity, resulting in increased interferon levels when triggered by STING agonist drugs that enabled the melanoma cells to now be recognized by immune cells and targeted for destruction.

These findings demonstrate for the first time that a strategy to overcome STING gene methylation can restore interferon signaling and immune cell activity in melanoma and improve a cell-based immunotherapy when combined with STING agonist drugs.

“These studies show the critical importance of an intact STING pathway in melanomas for optimal T cell immunotherapy success, and how to overcome a notable STING defect in melanoma cases of gene hypermethylation by a combination therapy,” said James J. Mulé, Ph.D., senior author and associate center director for Translational Science at Moffitt. “Unless patients’ melanomas are pre-screened for intact versus defective STING, it is not at all surprising that clinical trials of STING agonists have, to date, uniformly failed.”

Two studies support key role for immune system in shaping SARS-CoV-2 evolution

Two studies published in the open-access journal PLOS Pathogens provide new evidence supporting an important role for the immune system in shaping the evolution of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. These findings—and the novel technology behind them—improve understanding of how new SARS-CoV-2 strains arise, which could help guide treatment and vaccination efforts.

For the first study, Rachel Eguia of Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle, Washington, and colleagues sought to better understand SARS-CoV-2 by investigating a closely related virus that has circulated widely for a far longer period of time: the common-cold virus 229E.

229E and SARS-CoV-2 are both in the coronavirus family, which features a “spike protein” that enables infection of human cells. A person who is infected with 229E develops an immune response against the spike protein that protects them from reinfection, but only for a few years. Whether reinfection then occurs because the wears off or because 229E evolves to escape it has been unclear.

Eguia and colleagues addressed this question by testing the activity of serum samples collected from patients in the 1980s-90s against spike proteins from both old 229E strains and strains that evolved later on. They found that the old spike proteins were vulnerable to the older sera. However, modern spike proteins were able to evade older sera while remaining vulnerable to sera from modern patients.

This analysis suggests that modern strains of 229E have accumulated spike protein mutations that enable them to evade older sera. These findings raise the possibility that SARS-CoV-2 and other coronaviruses could undergo similar evolution, and that COVID-19 vaccines may require periodic updates to remain effective against new strains.

The authors add, “The human common-cold coronavirus evolves over the span of years to decades to erode neutralization by human polyclonal serum antibodies. This work suggests that human coronaviruses undergo significant antigenic evolution that may contribute to eventual re-infections.”

For the second study, Sung Hee Ko of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases in Bethesda, Maryland, and colleagues developed new technology for genetic sequencing of the SARS-CoV-2 spike , enabling detection of multiple SARS-CoV-2 strains that may be present at the same time within a single infected patient.

Previous studies have used standard sequencing methods to produce a single genetic sequence from an individual patient, obscuring the potential presence of multiple SARS-CoV-2 strains. By contrast, the new technology highlights virus diversity within each patient and enables tracking of the evolution of new SARS-CoV-2 strains during acute infection.

Indeed, when the researchers applied the new method to human respiratory samples, they found new SARS-CoV-2 variants arising within the same patient over the course of acute infection. The precise mutations in these variants suggest that they arose in response to selective pressure from the immune system.

Future application of the new technology could improve understanding of how the evolution of new SARS-CoV-2 variants within a single patient impacts their outcomes. The findings also suggest that patients might see greater benefits from early treatment with capable of targeting multiple strains, than from delayed treatment with a single antiviral drug.

The authors add, “We used new technology to show that coronavirus variants with mutated spike proteins can arise early in the course of infection. Our results suggest more virus evolution in each person than previously thought, with potential implications for clinical outcomes and for the emergence of transmissible variant strains.”

Together, these two studies deepen understanding of how new SARS-CoV-2 arise in response to activity, potentially paving the way for additional research and improved treatment.

Moffitt Investigators Identify STING Gene Methylation that Allows Melanoma to Evade the Immune System

5 Good Habits To Improve One’s Immune System

5 Good Habits To Improve One’s Immune System

The past year has been a constant reminder of how vital our immunity can be in avoiding viral flu and infections. Hence we must pay attention to our immune systems now more than ever before. Though the idea of boosting our immunity is enticing, the ability to do so has proved to be elusive for several reasons. The immune system is precisely that — a system, not a single entity and to function well, it requires balance and harmony.

 

While bolstering the immune system is easier said than done, several dietary and lifestyle changes can strengthen the body’s natural defences and help us fight harmful pathogens or disease-causing organisms. It is the first line of defence to lead a healthy lifestyle and we must continue to strengthen our immunity by healthy habits and a balanced diet coupled with physical activity in any form.

Let’s pledge to develop smart habits to boost your immune system:

 

Swish With Cold-Pressed Virgin Coconut Oil
oil pulling is an alternative health practice gaining traction in recent times not only for oral health but also as an immunity-boosting measure. As the mouth is home to millions of microbes including bacteria, the oil pulling process helps get rid of these bacteria through swishing oil in the mouth and in-between the teeth. Swishing the oil for a prolonged period cleanses the mouth and decreases the bacterial load. Not only does this promote oral hygiene, this technique aids in overall health and well-being.

Cold-pressed virgin coconut oil is a superfood recommended for its myriad health benefits; it is a rich source of naturally occurring Lauric acid and contains Vitamin E which helps to improve the body’s immunity. The Medium Chain Fatty Acids (MCFAs) that contain lauric acid and caprylic acid strengthen the immune system and have anti-viral properties. Therefore, Adding 2 spoons of virgin coconut oil to the diet every day can help improve immunity and maintain a healthy, holistic lifestyle.

Add Rainbow To Your Plate
Munch on immune-boosting foods, add a rainbow to your plate with fresh, coloured, seasonal fruits and vegetables, nuts, protein sources like egg, dals, sprouts, low-fat dairy- paneer, curd. The nutrients one gets from food — in particular, plant-based foods like fruits, vegetables, herbs, and spices — are essential to keeping our immune system functioning properly. Whole plant foods like fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, and legumes are rich in nutrients and antioxidants that may give one an upper hand against harmful pathogens. The antioxidants in these foods help decrease inflammation by combatting unstable compounds called free radicals. Meanwhile, the fibre in plant foods feeds the gut microbiome or the community of healthy bacteria in the gut. A robust gut microbiome can improve immunity and help keep harmful pathogens from entering the body via the digestive tract. Additionally, fruits and vegetables are rich in nutrients like vitamin C, which may reduce the duration of the common cold

Try Green Coffee
Unlike regular coffee, green coffee beans are unroasted beans that preserve Chlorogenic acid (CGA), lost to a great extent during the roasting of coffee beans. Chlorogenic acid aids in weight loss and helps reduce body fat by modifying obesity-related hormones and upregulating fatty acid breakdown in the liver as well as decreasing fatty acid and cholesterol synthesis. It also reduces the absorption of carbohydrates, thus lowering blood sugar and insulin spikes – lowering the risk of Type-2 Diabetes.

 
Eat Honey

Furthermore, adding a drizzle of honey to your green coffee is highly recommended, honey is a natural ingredient widely used for weight management, immunity-boosting and as a healthy sweetening alternative in our favourite desserts. Honey is a great energiser and it has antibacterial and antiseptic properties. Identifying pure honey has become increasingly important as these health benefits will come to life only if your honey is pure. We should always go for FSSAI approved honey, for 100% surety lookout for the NMR approved mark i.e. Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) technology which ensures unadulterated honey including no added sugar ensuring 100% purity. NMR is seen as the gold standard for testing for adulteration in honey.

 

Replace sugar with pure honey as it contains natural anti-oxidants that help build immunity and support overall health.

Understand Importance Of Me Time
Take time out for yourself to relax, work out and spend some “Me time”. Keep yourself cheerful and stress-free, relieving stress and anxiety is key to immune health. Simple habits such as adequate sleep and water will improve your overall health. While Hydration doesn’t necessarily protect one from germs and viruses, preventing dehydration is important for overall health. Additionally, sleep and immunity are closely tied and the body heals and regenerates while one sleeps making adequate sleep critical for a healthy immune response.

Vitamin C

High levels of vitamin C have been associated with enhanced antibody response and neutrophil (a type of white blood cell) function. This vital vitamin has even been used in some intensive care units to help treat Covid-19. Vitamin C is also a powerful antioxidant, understood to protect the immune system against oxidative stress generated during infections. It will also help combat running-induced free-radical damage.

Eat it: Oranges, peppers, leafy greens, broccoli, berries and tomatoes are all good sources of vitamin C.

Vitamin D

As well as playing important roles in bone and muscle health, vitamin D is needed
for a healthy immune system. It is understood to regulate inflammation and increase macrophage (a white blood cell) function. However, vitamin D deficiency is surprisingly common in the UK. Sunlight is our primary source of vitamin D, so while a regular run in daylight will help you, it may not be enough. Evidence suggests vitamin D supplementation may prevent upper respiratory infections, so it’s worth taking a daily dose.

Eat it: Vitamin D can also be found in eggs and salmon, as well as mushrooms grown in sunlight.

Beneficial bacteria

An estimated 70-80 per cent of our body’s immune system is in the gut, in the form of beneficial ‘good’ bacteria. These probiotic bacteria line the gut wall and they have been shown to stimulate the production of immune cells, including IgA-producing cells, T lymphocytes and natural killer cells (really!). Studies have found that supplementation reduces the frequency and severity of respiratory infections.

Eat it: Probiotics occur naturally in fermented soya products such as miso and tempeh. Try adding Clearsprings Brown Rice Miso Paste (£4.79 for 300g, clearspring.co.uk) to soups, stews, bean dishes and sauces to boost flavour and give your gut a bacteria boost.

Elderberry

Elderberry extract has been used as a natural anti-viral for centuries. Studies have found that supplementation works to increase inflammatory cytokine production, a healthy response from our immune systems when viruses are present. Their dark-purple colour is the result of beneficial compounds known as anthocyanins, powerful plant chemicals with antioxidant effects.

Eat it: Elderberries can be found in abundance in hedgerows, between July and October, depending on where you are in the UK.
