Boost Your Immune System with Immune Support DF
Getting everyone healthy is the point of my newsletters. The problem is everyone other than you folks who read my newsletters are probably confused and massively misinformed. In this issue I've got a great recommendation for you which incorporate the latest science. While there are no cure-alls, this new ingredient is designed for both specific health conditions and overall wellness. I am introducing a product called Immune Support DF.
Many of you from around the world have asked for more detail in these e mails. There are actually folks teaching classes in India using my information. So in this e-mail I have gone into more detail in my explanations. Let's get started. My new product, Immune Support DF contains high concentrations of immunoglobulins. It can be used for people of all ages who are faced with challenges to their health. Immune Support DF is low fat and free of lactose and other milk proteins. It has no known side effects except better health. Research has demonstrated that oral immunoglobulin's (defined later in this e-mail) survive stomach acid and remain active while in the digestive tract. Immune Support DF has been shown to increase immunity, lower cholesterol, improve moods, improve muscle and connective tissue, improve growth and support gastrointestinal health. Additionally, there are studies that show its relevance related to Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Inflammatory Bowel Disease, HIV, Cancer and Sports Recovery. I take this product daily along with my wife and children. Once you read this e-mail you will know why!
Be sure to supplement Immune Support DF with my Virus Killer protocol found in my recent blog post:

So what is Immune Support DF?
Immune Support DF is a patented composition, which contains several different proteins. It is derived from no Bovine growth hormone cattle specifically raised for food. Just as consumers use colostrums supplements, originating from cattle, Immune Support DF comes from cattle as well. As most of you are aware, I focus primarily on nutritional supplements and nutraceuticals from all sources. Some are derived from plants, rocks, and fish and in this case, mammals. Cattle raised as food animals produce specific immunity against a broad range of organisms because they are routinely exposed to common environmental pathogens (disease-causing microbes) to a much greater degree than humans. As a result, the immunoglobulin of bovine origin contains antibodies that help kill human pathogens. This includes such pathogens as E. coli (linked to diarrhea), rotavirus (associated with digestive distress), H. pylori (produces ulcers), salmonella (brings about food poisoning), candida (triggers yeast infection), streptococcus (causes strep throat and other health issues), and staphylococcus (sets off infections).
Immune Support DF is particularly rich in the immunoglobulins IgG, IgM and IgA. It contains approximately 45% of IgG. It also contains Transferrin, Cytokines, Interleukins, Interferons, and Lymphokines. In addition, Immune Support DF is rich in growth factors such as Insulin-like Growth Factor I and II (IGF-I & IGF-II) and Transforming Growth Factors (TGF). See the following ingredients;
Before you start to fuss at me for all the scientific jargon, remember this material is being taught all over the world. So let me explain to you what this means in English.
Immunoglobulins are one of the most important products of the immune system. Also known as antibodies, they are substances in your blood produced by the body's immune system. The basic function of immunoglobulins is to find and tag foreign substances (antigens) such as bacteria, viruses and other environmental pathogens. When an immunoglobulin attaches to the antigen, this prevents the antigen from finding its target rendering it inactive. For example, if the antigen bound by an antibody is a virus, the antibody can prevent the attachment of the virus to your cells. Likewise, binding of an antibody to a toxin prevents the uptake of the toxin by the body. In both examples, the antibody has effectively neutralized the foreign invader. Immunoglobulins can also tag the foreign substance with a coating so that it can be recognized as foreign; ingested by specialized white blood cells; destroyed; and presented on the surface of the white blood cells for recognition by other cells of the immune system. Unlike antibiotics, immunoglobulins also allow the immune system to specifically recognize foreign invaders while ignoring good bacteria that are part of the body's natural environment. What this means is that it can help stop a problem before it starts.
So why should any of us care?
A person experiencing decreased immune function is at increased risk of developing frequent colds, flues and cancer. With a compromised immune system, initially mild infections may become more serious. A person may be born with an immune system that produces low levels of antibodies in general, or the immune system may produce low levels of antibodies in response to certain diseases (like cancer). This is why the Immune Support DF is great to knock out colds or sore throats before they get a foot hold in your body.
The five major types of immunoglobulins are:
IgA. IgA antibodies are found mainly in areas of the body such the nose, breathing passages, digestive tract, ears, eyes, and vagina. IgA antibodies protect body surfaces that are exposed to the outside from foreign organisms and substances. This type of antibody is also found in saliva and tears. About 10% to 15% of the antibodies usually present in the body are IgA antibodies. A small percentage of people do not make IgA antibodies.
IgG. IgG antibodies are found in all body fluids. They are the smallest but most abundant of the antibodies, normally comprising about 75% to 80% of all the antibodies in the body. IgG antibodies are considered the most important antibodies for fighting bacterial and viral infections. IgG antibodies are the only type of antibody that can cross the placenta. Therefore, the IgG antibodies of a pregnant woman can also help protect her baby.
IgM. IgM antibodies are the largest type of antibody. They are found in blood and lymph fluid and are the first type of antibody produced in response to an infection. They also cause other immune system cells to produce compounds that can destroy invading cells. IgM antibodies normally comprise about 5% to 10% of all the antibodies in the body.
IgD. IgD antibodies are found in small amounts in the tissues that line the abdominal or chest cavity of the body. The function of IgD antibodies is not well understood. They appear to play a role in allergic reactions to some substances such as milk, some medications, and some poisons.
IgE. IgE antibodies are found in the lungs, skin, and mucous membranes. They cause the body to react against foreign substances such as pollen, fungus spores, and animal dander. IgE antibody levels are often high in people with allergies. Immunoglobulins are plentiful in the human body. In fact, one third of the proteins found in blood are immunoglobulins. The body's mucous membranes (the protective barrier that runs from the tip of the sinuses to the bottom of the intestinal tract), tears, lungs and other orifices all have immunoglobulins coating them. Immunoglobulins can be thought of as extra reinforcements to help defend the body. This is particularly important in the digestive system. All that enters the body through the mouth and the nose goes into the digestive system so it is a major site of invasion by microbes. While the body has many defenses, immunoglobulins is a critical component of the defense network. Immunoglobulin is the specific protein used by the body to "flush" foreign organisms from the intestinal tract.
Transferrin is a term that describes a family of iron-binding protein with antiviral, antibacterial, anti-inflammatory properties. Transferrin has been implicated in the treatment of such diseases as cancer, HIV, herpes, chronic fatigue, candida albicans and other infections. In the intestinal tract, a specific transferrin called lactoferrin may help by stimulating intestinal cell growth and enhancing the growth of "good" intestinal microflora. (Intestines contain both good and bad bacteria. Maintaining these in the right balance is important for digestive health.) A strong antioxidant, lactoferrin scavenges free iron, which prevents uncontrolled iron-based free radical reactions. Additionally, lactoferrin has positive immune modulating effects. It gives the immune system the tools it needs to operate at the appropriate level. An immune system that is over stimulated leads to auto immune conditions, while an immune system that is under active leads to illness and disease.
Cytokines are small protein molecules that are the core of communication between immune system cells, and even between these cells and cells belonging to other tissue types. Poor cellular communication leads to abnormal cell growth (cancer) or auto immune conditions (rheumatoid arthritis). They are involved in antiviral and anti-tumor activity and regulation and intensity of immune responses. Elevations in inflammatory cytokines (a certain type of cytokine) are often involved in involuntary weight loss and loss of lean body mass. Cytokine modulation may offer tremendous benefits to individuals affected by immune deficiencies, chronic diarrhea, and inflammatory disease.
Interleukins are the cytokines that act specifically as mediators between leucocytes (white blood cells). The function of the immune system depends in a large part on interleukins, and deficiencies of a number of them can lead to auto immune diseases (such as lupus, multiple sclerosis, and rheumatoid arthritis) or general immune deficiency. Interleukins have shown particular promise in fighting.
One of the first cytokines to be discovered was interferon. Interferon is produced by T cells (small white blood cells that orchestrate the immune defense and macrophages (a type of white blood that ingests foreign material). They are a family of proteins with antiviral properties. Presently, interferons are even being used as a drug treatment program for those with certain types of cancer and viral infections.
Lymphokines, another type of cytokine, are powerful chemical substances secreted by lymphocytes (small white blood cells produced in the lymphoid organs and paramount in the immune defenses). These soluble molecules help direct and regulate the immune responses. This is a key for all of us who wish to have a properly functioning immune system.
Insulin-like Growth Factor I and II: (IGF-I & IGF-II):
IGF I & II affect how the body uses fat, protein and sugar. IGF-I is one of the only substances known to stimulate the repair and growth of DNA and RNA, making it one of the most powerful anti-aging substances. IGF-I has been clinically proven to help increase lean muscle mass and may help regulate blood sugar and cholesterol levels.
Transforming Growth Factors (TGF):
TGF stimulates the proliferation of cells in connective tissue and assists in the formation of bone and cartilage. It is also showing promise as a therapeutic agent in bone and wound healing. TGF can help repair tissue and may support the development of growth of the lining of the intestinal system. If you have Arthritis or joint problems this is a must!
So now that we know what's in Immune Support DF, how does it work? The immune system is the body's means of protecting us from foreign organisms or substances such as germs, toxins, and allergens. Because people encounter these things every moment of each day, it is essential to maintain a healthy immune system. In addition, common everyday psychological and physical factors such as stress, poor nutrition, dieting, travel and strenuous athletic training may tax a person's immune system and cause it to function at less than optimal levels.
Immune studies are very difficult and expensive to perform on humans, so many of these studies must use animals as subjects. Immunoglobulins have been given by mouth to successfully improve immune function, growth, and health of young animals since the 1990s. More than 100 million young animals per year are fed diets supplemented with immunoglobulin as a natural means to improve health status. As detailed through the content list above, Immune Support DF assists the immune system naturally and thus, reduces the burden on the immune system so that nutrients in the body can be used for productive functions elsewhere. This data indicates that antibodies against common pathogens are found in high concentrations in Immune Support DF.
It kills multiple types of pathogens and germs.
The antibodies found in Immune Support DF help kill and protect us from such common pathogens as Anti-Listeria, Anti-Campylobacter, Anti-E. Coli (0157), Anti-Salmonella.
