368 – Fortify and Optimize Your Immune Response

Keep your immune system strong!

Your body comes with its own built in defense system that is always on surveillance to protect you from immune challenges and more by responding to attacks as they happen. Sometimes that is not enough. The challenge two-fold. The first step is to fortify our nutrition in order to support our natural immune function.* For many people this is works very well. So this would be considered as foundational.

But even the most diligent natural health consumer will be exposed to something at sometime and begin to experience symptoms of the emerging threat. The best response is to begin your program to bolster your immune system for an increased and immediate defense. I have found that if I begin my emergency protocol AS SOON AS POSSIBLE, then I most often can stop or blunt the effects. The longer one waits, the greater the risk of being affected to a greater degree. Time is of the essence.

Your goal should be to create an on-going nutritional program for immune support and employ this daily. Additionally you need an emergency kit that contains your go to support. You should always have this on hand for those times when you need to act now. When something hits you will be glad you are prepared. If you never need to access your support kit, then consider yourself lucky. To be prepared and never need to use it is better than needing it and not being prepared. Words to the wise.

In this interview with Stuart Tomc, we will discuss the immune system and the ways in which our bodies acquire and maintain immunity. We will discuss two products from CV SciencesTM that are designed to offer daily immune support and provide intensive immune support. This is two-fold support providing daily and emergency support.

Three Types of Immunity

  • Barrier Immunity: This is our first line of defense (e.g. skin, mucous membranes)
  • Innate Immunity: This is our built in immune response (e.g. immune cells rush in to help when foreign invaders are detected)
  • Adaptive Immunity: This is the immunity our bodies develop from attacks and prepares us for future challenges (e.g. antibody defenses)

Immune Support Formulas

CV Defense for daily immune support

The active ingredients in CV Defense are backed by over 800 research papers and 39 clinical studies. The science confirms the nutritional benefits. This research based formula includes vitamins A and D, selenium, zinc, organic reishi mushroom extract and PEA (palmitoylethanolamide). PEA has been the subject of six double blind, placebo-controlled clinical trials.

PEA may seem like the new kid on the block, but Google Scholar reports over 7700 studies all time for palmitoylethanolamide and over 670 studies in 2020 alone. Many of these studies identified that PEA has an effect on endocannabinoid system (ECS) receptors.

Note: CV SciencesTM is well-known as premier CBD manufacturer, however these two products do not contain CBD. If you use CBD, these two products are perfectly complimentary.

CV Acute for intensive immune support

This is the formula for the first signs of distress and is designed for rapid immune response (3-day protocol). CV Acute is based on a Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) herbal formula. This unique formula incorporates ingredients capable of building up your natural immunity and promoting and optimized immune response.

Hundreds of pre-clinical and clinical studies have demonstrated the CV Acute formula is an effective agent to support the immune system as it is faced with episodic challenges.

This formula is cited by the World Health Organization (WHO) for immune system challenges and is used in TCM hospitals.

I have tied several CV Sciences products and have not been disappointed. I caught a cold recently and i had a runny nose and coughing and I tried the CV acute for a few days and it was great. I also like the cbd oil and just ordered another Acute plus a defense and their premium cbd capsules…

Thanks for your comment. I have added CV Acute to my emergency wellness kit. I hope I never need it. Best wishes. Steve
