Immuno‐Snacks are comprised of:
Complete Paleo (Protein Powder), Greens Renew Powder, and Phyto Renew Powder.
Complete Paleo Immune Properties: Complete Paleo (Protein Powder) is the ultimate delivery and absorption system for providing the building blocks (amino acids and branched chain amino acids) your body needs for essentials like DNA/RNA, and the protein bases for immune factors (such as cytokines and antibodies etc.). Scientists report that hydrolyzed proteins are considered to have potential as functional food ingredients with immunomodulatory activity, enhancing innate immunity. They also report that protein hydrolysates also exhibit the ability to attenuate pro-inflammatory gene expression. This is an epigenetic modification of gene manifestation, or more simply put, an example of how an environmental factor can influence gene expression. Branched chain amino acids (BCAA) are needed for lymphocyte growth and proliferation and cytotoxic T lymphocyte activity; in fact, receptors for the BCAA are present on immune cells.
Greens Renew Powder Immune Properties: Natural flavonoids are described as having “immunoregulatory actions”, and in fact, they were the top choice (especially quercetin) for regulating a homeostatic inflammatory response (Gut-Microbiota-Brain Axis and its Effect on Neuropsychiatric Disorders with Suspected Immune Dysregulation. Anastasia I. Petra et al. Purpose 2015; 37 (5):984–995.) The powerful flavonoids luteolin and quercetin are “potent mast cell blockers”; they are contained in (broccoli, carrots, parsley, and peppermint) all of which are in Greens Renew Powder. Mast cells are "master regulators" and key players of the immune system as well as having a crucial role in the regulation of various physiological processes. MCs are unique cells with multiple capabilities. It is well documented that mast cells are critical for the repercussion of most inflammatory imbalances (The Vagus Nerve in the Neuro-Immune Axis: Implications in the Pathology of the Gastrointestinal Tract. Bonaz B et al. Front Immunol. 2017 Nov 2;8:1452.) Greens Renew Powder is also available in a chewable tablet.
Phyto Renew Powder Immune Properties:
For additional nutrients to muster killer T cells into action and reinforce the fighting arms of the immune system there is nothing better than phytonutrient power. Antioxidants and powerful, efficacious plant derived extracts hold the potential to maximize immune defenses. Phyto Renew Powder (also available in a chewable tablet) is a combination of these powerful plant extracts. The flavonoids and ingredients in Phyto Renew Powder - Pomegranate, Blueberry, Raspberry, Blackberry, Cherry, Lemon Bioflavonoids, Elderberry, Acai, Grapeseed Extract, Resveratrol, Quercetin, and reduced glutathione all team together to provide one of the most powerful punches the immune system can deliver. From “pomegranate-derived immunomodulatory compounds” to the “quite potent biological activity” of acai, this amazing blend of synergy fortifies defenses! Hailed as phytochemicals with exceptionally strong benefits, including antioxidant power and the ability to support killer T cells, researchers provide a long list of references to support the purported attributes of the ingredients such as the ones included in Phyto Renew Powder.
