This is usually about the time when things start to get a little glitchy and break down; a common part of the aging process, unfortunately.
The good news is that you can help slow down the damage – or in some cases even reverse it – with proper nutritional and supplemental intervention.
If your current plan to age gracefully includes eating healthy, staying hydrated, de-stressing, and getting plenty of rest, you’re already on the right track.
However what if you could take things to a whole new level by incorporating the best of what nature has to offer into your daily regimen for added support for a strong, healthy immune system?
The following 3 herbs will help you do just that… without breaking the bank.
Healthy Immune System Support #3 – Frankincense
Evidence exists to suggest that frankincense is effective in helping to balance the mind, body, and soul in truly profound ways that science is only just beginning to fully discover.
Its essential oils are believed to help promote optimal function of the central nervous system.
Specific to the immune system are the reported benefits of frankincense in enhancing its functionality.
Studies also show that frankincense exhibits a powerful antimicrobial effect against harmful bacteria and viruses. It may even be a viable weapon against abnormal cell growth, as numerous trials have demonstrated its pro-apoptotic and anti-proliferative effects.
Healthy Immune System Support #2 – Myrrh
Myrrh (Commiphora myrrha) has a rich history as a natural remedy for an assortment of ailments.
Studies suggest that myrrh has powerful benefits for conditions marked by chronic inflammation.
It’s also a powerful detoxifier, helping to rid the body of toxic metals such as lead.
Studies show that the terpenoids in myrrh may help to prevent fats and other metabolites in plants against oxidation, and that similar benefits are possible in humans as well.
Research has also shown that myrrh terpenoids possess unique anti-inflammatory properties that can help support a well-functioning body.
Another nutrient inside of Myrrh called, sesquiterpenes, can help support a healthy immune system in a variety of ways. The sesquiterpenes specific to myrrh possess powerful antibacterial and antifungal properties that lend to the herb’s reported effectiveness in purification and cleansing.
This is why myrrh was commonly used in ancient times to embalm the dead. Sesquiterpenes are also said to be supportive in keeping inflammation at bay, as well as in helping to balance emotions and hormone levels.
Healthy Immune System Support #1 – Turmeric
It’s hard to know where to start with this ancient “golden” spice because, honestly, it does so much. More than 3,000 peer-reviewed papers confirm that turmeric (Curcuma longa) is a functional food of the highest order.
Specifically, these studies suggest that turmeric can be effectively used to support health in a multitude of ways including to help combat depression, manage pain, and soothe the stomach and gut. Many people also take it to help keep their cholesterol levels in check.
But where science suggests that turmeric may hold the most promise is in the area of inflammation support. Curcumin, the believed-to-be primary active constituent in turmeric, is considered by many to be one of the most potent anti-inflammatory substances known to mankind.
The combined results of many different studies reveal that curcumin can even trump many pharmaceutical drugs with its incredible ability to take on a variety of maladies, including those that affect the blood, brain, heart, gut, and central nervous system.
The anti-inflammatory properties of curcumin are further well-documented, showing that this bioactive substance interacts with many different molecular targets associated with inflammation.
One research paper published in 2009 in the journal Alternative Medicine Review stated that, “based on early cell culture and animal research, clinical trials indicate curcumin may have potential as a therapeutic agent in diseases such as inflammatory bowel disease, pancreatitis, arthritis, and chronic anterior uveitis, as well as certain types of cancer”.
The paper’s author went on to say that, “Curcumin’s potent anti-inflammatory properties have led to active research on its use for a variety of inflammatory conditions, including postoperative inflammation, arthritis, uveitis, inflammatory pseudotumors, dyspepsia, irritable bowel syndrome, inflammatory bowel disease, pancreatitis, and Helicobacter pylori infection”.
