Support Your Immune System
The immune system is essential for your body’s health. It fights off sickness and helps the body to run at its best. Unfortunately, we don’t always take care of our immune systems. Luckily, there are plenty of ways to give your immune system better support so it can stay healthy and strong.
Cedar Bear is dedicated to producing high quality liquid herb and iodine supplements. Iodine is an essential nutrient to many parts of the body, and for the immune system. Our Nascent Iodine is a great way to supply your body with more to help your immune system ward of illness. We believe in the power of nature to help nurture and heal our bodies, and that’s why we’ve created a line of all natural, Kosher certified products to give your body extra nutrients for better support of the body systems like the immune system. Here’s a look at the immune system, and how you can help support it.
What is the Immune System?
The immune system is your body’s defense against harmful microorganisms that cause illness. When the immune system is triggered, it causes an immune response that attacks the invading cells to prevent them from damaging healthy and helpful cells. Two types of white blood cells, phagocytes and lymphocytes, are the primary attackers against these microorganisms. Phagocytes are the cells that destroy invasive cells, and lymphocytes are cells that trigger immune responses by identifying potential dangers.
These cells are stored throughout the body, but are transported through the blood. The immune system relies on the proper functioning of nearly every bodily system to work at its best and ward off illness. Proper blood circulation, digestion and excretion, and nervous system function are especially important.
How to Keep Your Immune System Healthy
Keeping your immune system healthy depends on the health of your entire body. Because the immune system reacts with every bodily system, it is important to focus on general and overall health for the best immune system health. Living a healthy lifestyle by eating a proper balanced diet with plenty of fruits and vegetables, drinking plenty of water, avoiding stress and exercising regularly are all great ways to improve your immune system. Healthy weight is also an important factor in immune function, and likely coincides with healthy diet and exercise. Being over or underweight can compromise your immune system, causing you to be more susceptible to illness.
Other things that you can do for your immune system are incorporate plenty of antioxidants and probiotics into your diet. Antioxidants help protect your cells from damaging free radicals, unstable oxygen molecules. Probiotics are healthy and helpful bacteria that line the digestive tract and help us digest our food. They are beneficial to immune function because they are competition for harmful cells for space on the walls of our digestive tract, and they make it harder for harmful bacteria to enter our bodies through our digestive tract walls.
If you are having a hard time getting all of the nutrients that you need to keep your body and immune system strong, try supplements. High quality supplements can be a great way to give your body extra nutrients easily, as our diets often lack many essential vitamins and minerals.
Iodine and the Immune System
Many people around the world are missing out on their daily recommended intake of iodine. Iodine is essential for the proper functioning of the thyroid to make thyroid hormone that regulates the body’s metabolism. Since the metabolism and immune system go hand in hand, it is important that you are not missing out on iodine to keep your body healthy and give it the best chance of fighting off illness. Certain foods like dairy products, seaweed, and fish, are all concentrated with iodine, but if you struggle to incorporate these things into your diet, an iodine supplement might be necessary.
Supplement Your Immune System with Nascent Iodine
Cedar Bear is proud to offer a high quality liquid nascent iodine supplement. At Cedar Bear, we never bind our iodine to other minerals like potassium (Lugol’s iodine) or sodium (Iosol Iodine) that get in the way of your body’s absorption of the iodine in the supplement. Nascent Iodine begins being absorbed by your body as soon as it comes in contact with the soft tissues of your mouth and digestive tract. Nascent iodine keeps its natural charge until it is dispersed in water for consumption, and will slowly lose its power for two to three hours.
