“Age Young” Instead of “Growing Old”
New York, NY — (SBWIRE) — 06/18/2013 — Amazing Story about How Your Body is Patrolled Day & Night by Its Own Natural Security Officers, Called NK Cells.
We are exposed to billions of germs and bacteria every day. Our only defense against them is our immune system. It is actually a sophisticated battalion that protects us. An interesting fact: Everyone is patrolled 24/7 by these licensed- to-kill Super Agents, Natural Killer (NK) Cells. We now know how to improve this warrior’s vitality so you can age healthy and young. Natural Killer cells, or NK cells, are lymphocytes of the innate immune system that have an important duty in eliminating abnormal and stressed cells from the body.
The NK cell’s duty is similar to the National Security Agency. Suppose a terrorist infiltrates a crowded city. To protect the innocent people, the NSA Patrol sets up surveillance to see whether or not anyone looks suspicious, carries anything dangerous, or has a valid permit/ID. As long as the suspect is not harmful and doesn’t look detrimental, the officers will leave him/her alone. Abnormal and stressed cells, dysfunctional cells like free radicals, virally infected cells, and tumor cells cannot pass the “scrutinizing inspection”. The immune system’s rapid-response is to unleash it’s licensed-to-kill team quickly. The team approaches a dangerous cell, punctures holes in the offending cell’s outer wall and release poisons (Perforin and Granzymes) to destroy it. On the whole, your immune system does a remarkable job of defending you against disease-causing microorganisms.
So, how do we make the immune system stronger? Exercise regularly and eat healthy foods daily that contain micronutrients and antioxidants, including Beta-carotene, Lutein, Lycopene, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin E and Selenium.
The best recommended dietary supplement is the Antioxidant Formula by Natures Way and the best recommended topical antioxidant for the skin is the Authentique 3-Step Care by KLARIF. Klarif products contain antioxidants and enzymes from berries and fruit seeds, red ginseng, sea kelp, and other all-natural sources.
Several studies have shown that antioxidants improve mitochondrial function and protect against disease. Mitochondria are found in most of the cells in your body. They are responsible for energy as well as cell growth, and the life-span of a cell. So, if you can keep your Mitochondria healthy and happy, you’ll stay young and energetic. One of the easiest ways of ensuring mitochondria health, while aiding your NK cells, is by using products that contain antioxidants. Win-Win!
