THE IMMUNE SYSTEM
IMMUNE SYSTEM: The Power of Defense
The healing and maintenance of health is the responsibility of the body’s own defenses. The body’s immune system starts with the “sanitation” department” which consists of macrophages (in English “large eaters”). These macrophages break down and transport away foreign bodies of all types: chemical toxins, body wastes, no longer functioning cells, early cancerous cells and toxins produced by the body.
It is to our advantage to lavish care and attention on our hungry macrophages. Numerous environmental toxins, stressful, unhealthy lifestyles and modern chemotherapeutic drugs, can all serve to weaken these macrophages. If the macrophages weaken, more and more metabolic residues begin to accumulate in the blood, in the lymph and in the tissues which then lead to chronic illnesses.
PROLINK INTERNATIONAL in its effort to bring into the country researched based traditional and time-tested ways to eliminate these toxins to strengthen and protect the immune system is taken the lead in educating and distributing products that help cleanse and detoxify the immune system thereby assisting the immune system to heal itself and maintain good health and wellness.
A strong immune system is the cornerstone of good health and a long life. One of the major result of our fast-paced industrialized society is that we are constantly taking in impure water and food. This causes toxins to build up rapidly to the point where our bodies are no longer able to eliminate them. With all of these poisoning us, is it any wonder our immune systems are unable to function properly?

WHAT IS AGING?
“Aging is a progressive loss of physiological functions that increases the probability of death. This decline in function occurs both within individual cells and within the organism as a whole. Life expectancy (or average lifespan) depends highly on both the biology of aging and the life circumstances of the organism.”

FACTORS THAT AFFECT HEALTH
It is now increasingly being recognized that there are food supplements that can “strengthen the immune system” and/or have anti-inflammatory properties. The food supplements that have been studied for these effects contain enzymes and important anti-oxidants, such as anthocyanins, beta-carotene, xeronine, xanthones, etc. Virgin coconut oil provides lauric acid which has anti-bacterial and anti-viral effect and regulates metabolism.
WHAT IS NUTRACEUTICAL?
NUTRACEUTICAL is any food or food part taken for health benefits – Dr. Stephen L. De Felice M.D., Chairman of The Foundation for Innovation Medicine. Like beverages - (juices, coffee, tea), processed cereals soaps and herbal supplements.
