Immune Boosting Strategies: Stem Cells Defeating Covid-19
Two basic nutrients may hold the key to slowing this pandemic
In these uncertain times in dealing with a medical pathogen that is unrecognizable and has not been studied; we focus our treatment on stimulating and boosting the body’s immune system. What we do know is that a healthy immune system is one of the most critical components to slow the progression of this pandemic. We have seen that this strain of the virus has systemic effects on the upper respiratory tract, sinuses, and inner ear canals as well as more global effects on the immune system and body’s regulation of inflammation, cytokines, chemokines, and our stem cells. Even in the unfortunate circumstance that someone does come into contact or have exposure to COVID-19 (or any other pathogen) a robust immune system is the key “front lines” to making sure that our bodies can fend off these foreign intruders.
Stem Cells Defeating Covid-19; By now, we are all somewhat familiar with stem cells; what they do, how helpful they can be to our bodies to help regenerate a torn ligament or tendon or help with inflammation or arthritis, but what you may not know is that Stem Cells are arguably the most influential and enhancing substance for our body’s Immune System. In a recent publication, Mesenchymal Stem Cell Therapy administered via Intravenous Infusion proved to be influential to enhance people’s immune system and reduce symptoms from viruses and bacterial pathogens. Recently published case studies released on March 4th 2020, indicated that 8 patients infected with COVID-19 in “critical condition” in Beijing, China were “successfully” treated with IV Mesenchymal Stem Cells. In the study, “the mesenchymal stem cells showed there to be repair to the severe organ damage and significant immunomodulation as well as secretion of cytokines that influence immune modulator cells” (Shetty, A. (2020) Mesenchymal Stem Cell Infusion Shows Promise for Combating Coronavirus (COVID-19)- Induced Pneumonia) We do know that mesenchymal stem cells help to promote the “healing cascade” and tissue regeneration as well as stimulate growth of new blood vessels, immune system cells, releasing of thousands of different growth factors, growth proteins and anti-inflammatory benefits. We all know of the benefits of mesenchymal stem cells to the body as a whole but we all must understand and acknowledge that substantial benefit of these great therapies on the Immune system
RenewU Immune Compound Liposomal Vitamin C and Zinc
For those of us practicing Integrative and Functional Medicine, we are well aware of how certain micronutrients, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants are some of the most essential substances for our bodies especially in times where our bodies are constantly being taxed and exposed to dangerous pathogens. There has been a plethora of published data and information discussing how these 2 key nutrients may be even more influential then we already know! One of the biggest published studies goes on to discuss the importance of these 2 compounds. Vitamin C concentrations in the plasma and leukocytes (white blood cells) rapidly decline during infections and stress. Supplementation of vitamin C was found to improve components of the human immune system such as antimicrobial and natural killer cell activities, lymphocyte proliferation, chemotaxis, and delayed-type hypersensitivity. Vitamin C contributes to maintaining the redox integrity of cells and thereby protects them against reactive oxygen species generated during the respiratory burst and in the inflammatory response. Likewise, zinc undernutrition or deficiency was shown to impair cellular mediators of innate immunity such as phagocytosis, natural killer cell activity, and the generation of oxidative burst (technical processes that our Immune systems use to support our immune system). (Wintergerst, E. S., Maggini, S., & Hornig, D. H. (2006). Immune-enhancing role of vitamin C and zinc and effect on clinical conditions. Therefore, both nutrients play important roles in immune function and the modulation (enhancement) of host(bodies) resistance to infectious agents, reducing the risk, severity, and duration of infectious diseases.(Stem Cells Defeating Covid-19)
NOT ALL VITAMIN C and ZINC ARE CREATED EQUAL
With the amount of people who have had exposure to COVID-19 and other viral and bacterial pathogens we have thought about ways to help people supplement their vitamin C and zinc levels. What you may not know is that there are different forms of these essential micronutrients. In an effort to provide our patients the very best treatment options our pharmacy has put together a compound of “Therapeutic” amounts of vitamin C and Zinc in the most bio-available delivery form. During this time of isolation and “Social Distancing” we must use the means in our homes to ensure the boosting and maintenance of our bodies immune system. It is for this reason that our pharmacy has prepared the most therapeutic, pure, form of liposomal vitamin C and zinc available.
