The Holidays are quickly approaching, and while this year has been completely unprecedented with the pandemic, families and friends are still looking forward to getting back to some sort of normalcy and spending the holidays together even if it is in a slightly different manner than is normal for this time of year. While our holiday gatherings and festivities may be smaller in number, it does not mean our celebration will be any less. We have to make adjustments during this pandemic while still finding ways to live our lives and promote our own health and well-being. Therefore, during these unprecedented times, it is essential that we find ways to boost our immune health so that when we are around family and friends for the holidays we can maintain our health and wellness.
Korean Red Ginseng
The Korea Ginseng Corp has many ginseng supplements that have been created with the highest quality Korean Red Ginseng to stimulate immune health. Korean Red Ginseng has been used for centuries by those who practice Eastern medicine as a modality to promote immune health and prevent illness. Korean Red Ginseng works by stimulating the specific cells within the immune system so that when exposed to foreign antigens such as bacteria and viruses, the immune system can fight back and erradicate these pathogens. By keeping the immune system healthy, the body can maintain health even when exposed to these bacteria and viruses.
The Immune System
The immune system has two integrated portions that work together to prevent illness and disease through a variety of intricate mechanisms. The two portions of the immune system include the innate arm of immunity and the adaptive (acquired) arm of immunity.
Innate Immune System
The innate arm of the immune system is the portion of the immune system that each of us has when we are born. The largest barrier to pathogens like bacteria and viruses is the skin. The skin functions to prevent entry of bacteria and viruses that can cause harm to the human body, which may result in illness or disease. The skin is the major portion of the innate immunity. There are other barriers within the human body that also fight to prevent infection, which also contribute to the innate immune system (Cobbin, 2014).
Adaptive (Acquired) Immune System
The second arm of the immune system is known as the acquired or adaptive immune system. It is the portion of the immune system that develops as we are exposed to pathogens such as bacteria or viruses. Other ways to develop this acquired immunity is via vaccinations. As one is exposed to more pathogens within the environment the immune system has to make adjustments to help address those foreign invaders in order to prevent illness and/or erradicate these pathogens if they do result in an infection. The adaptive (acquired) arm of the immune system is amazing in that when pathogens are presented to this portion of the immune system, it begins to cause a cascade of processes that results in the replication of specialized immune cells that work hard to efficiently and quickly remove the threat (Cobbin, 2014).
The adaptive immune system also has memory. Those specialized immune cells that began to replicate on primary exposure to the bacteria and or viruses, remember this specific pathogen on subsequent exposures. What this means is that if exposed to the same bacteria, virus or other foreign invaders for a second time, the immune system will use those memory cells to prevent infection on secondary exposure. If prevention of infection is not possible on secondary exposure, then the resultant infection will be much less potent than primary exposure because of those memory immune cells (Cobbin, 2014).
The immune system is imperative to the health of each one of us. Therefore, we must take serious the implications that occur if we don’t find ways to promote our immune health and prioritize our wellness. Korea Ginseng Corp has the best supplements for immune system. Korea Ginseng Corp has developed a new product called Koreselect Immune which contains Korean Red Ginseng that is twice as potent as the Korean Red Ginseng in other products. This means that you get twice the benefits for immune health. Other ingredients included with Koreselect Immune include European black elderberry antioxidant.
