None of us want to see our children sick- it’s hard to see children suffer. If we could, we would protect them from any illness- no matter how small.
Good news-In a series of recently published studies1, scientists found that children have particularly strong mucosal immunity-these same mucous membranes that line our nose and throat act like the ancient layered stone walls that protected medieval cities from invaders.
Our mucous membranes are made of epithelial cells —which sit side by side with key soldiers in the immune system called dendritic cells and macrophages2. These epithelial cells are covered in proteins — called pattern recognition receptors — that act like sentries, continuously scanning the landscape for anything unusual. When the sentries notice something foreign, they alert cells to begin releasing proteins called interferons, which help coordinate the body’s immune response.
Here’s how our new Children’s Immune chewable wafers can help our children’s mucosal immune system:
2′-FL plays an essential role in the postnatal growth and development of the mucosal immune system.3 It feeds the good bacteria in your child’s gut, which then strengthens their contributions to their immune system. Unlike many nutrients, 2′-FL survives the digestion process and is able to reach the large intestine in its natural form.
Colostrum contains diverse factors like HMOS, milk epidermal growth factor, or vitamin A, which contribute to the development of the neonatal mucosa and thus, to the promotion of the neonatal immune system by counterbalancing the deficiencies in early life. Elderberry has been found to be effective against numerous pathogens, including Streptococcus pyogenes and Escherichia coli.4
Invitation Only Event
There’s much more we’d like to share with you. I have an invitation-only event for 10 of our practitioners who would like to join me on Thursday, June 23 from 12 to 1 pm. Just respond to me with an email letting me know why you’d like to attend. I’ll forward it onto Standard Process and they’ll email you a special code in order to be on this training. In addition, there will be a Children’s Immune promotion tied only with this event.
Whether you’re a kid or a ‘kid at heart’, be sure to munch on a few Children’s Immune or our GI Stability, another great source of 2′-FL to help keep your mucosal immune system ‘fortress’ at its strongest!
