To strengthen our natural defenses, a food supplement that supports our immune potential.
- 3 bacterial strains with 9 billion CFU ( colony forming unit )
- Plant extracts
- Vitamins and minerals
- Fresh bacteria
- Vegetable and gastro-resistant capsule
Indicated in cases of repeated microbial infections, fatigue.
- Green tea contains caffeine and many antioxidant substances from the catechin family, the main one being EGCG (epigallocatechin-3-gallate).
- It also contains theanine which, according to scientific literature, has a relaxing effect on the nervous system and a stimulating effect on the immune system.
- Originally from South East Asia, the shiitake is the most cultivated mushroom in the world. It is used in traditional Chinese medicine. Certain studies in Brazil and the USA give it positive activity on the immune system. It contains 18 amino acids, vitamins D, B2, B3, B5, B6, B12, selenium and zinc and lentinan.
- The German Commission E recognizes the use of echinacea as an adjunct treatment for respiratory tract infections (colds, laryngitis, sinusitis, etc.) and urinary tract infections, as well as its topical use to treat chronic ulcers and poorly healing skin wounds. These indications are, on the whole, also confirmed by the WHO ( World Health Organization ) and ESCOP ( European Scientific Cooperative on Phytotherapy ) . ESCOP also recognizes the use of echinacea to prevent colds.
- Vitamin C and zinc contribute to the normal functioning of the immune system, to the protection of cells against free radicals (antioxidant effect).
Take 2 capsules during lunch and dinner with a large glass of water.
Precautions for use
Contraindicated in case of allergy to one of the ingredients or taking anticoagulants.
Contraindicated in cases of obstructive gallstones, hepatitis, or autoimmune diseases.
The main function of the immune system is to protect our body from diseases by recognizing and eliminating pathogens (viruses, bacteria), infected or cancerous cells, etc. The corollary is the recognition of self-antigens and the non-harmful environment: this is immune tolerance.
The immune system is made up of cells, organs and tissues forming a defensive network throughout our body. The immune system protects us through non-specific (innate immunity) and specific (acquired immunity) defenses.
Non-specific defenses include skin, hair, mucous membranes and mucus which physically repel foreign bodies. The inflammatory response is another non-specific response of the body.
Specific defenses trigger more targeted responses against allergens. This results in the action of T lymphocytes controlling the immune response and attacking infected cells (cellular immunity). The response to external attacks also includes the action of antibodies produced by B lymphocytes (humoral immunity).
The intestine in particular is characterized by its richness in lymphocytes. The intestinal mucosa plays a vital role in immune defense as it is in direct contact with allergens that can trigger infections. It is important that the bacterial flora be in good condition because it plays a major role in the immune response via the epithelial cells making up the intestinal mucosa.
To stimulate immunity it is necessary on the one hand to strengthen it and on the other hand to stimulate it.
The probiotics offered are strains recognized for their effects on immunity.
The probiotic strains R-52, R-33 and R-71 of the lactobacilli and bifidobacteria genera, deposited at the Pasteur Institute, were selected by in vitro studies for their resistance to gastric acidity and bile, and their intervention on 3 lines of defense of the body:
– 1st line: strengthening of the barrier effect against microbes
– 2nd line: stimulation of the innate immune response
– 3rd line: stimulation of the acquired immune response
Lactobacillus helveticus Rosell®-52 binds to the attachment sites of pathogenic bacteria such as enteropathogenic Escherichia Coli on intestinal epithelial cells, thereby preventing the establishment and translocation of the pathogen.
Daily intake of Bifidobacterium bifidum R0071 is beneficial for episodes of colds and flu during phases of high psychological stress,” This is the main conclusion of a large randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled probiotic study conducted at the University of Florida among 581 participants, and just published by the British Journal of Nutrition, demonstrating a 45% reduction in the likelihood that a participant would catch a cold/flu in one day, with taking a probiotic compared to taking a placebo.
These bacterial strains are fresh, meaning that their cultures were carried out exclusively for NFB Santé and on request, a guarantee of quality and effectiveness.
Vitamin C, zinc, green tea contribute to the body's defense by protecting it from oxidative stress generated to eliminate foreign agents.
The shiitake mushroom is known for its health benefits. It would thus have anti-cancer, anti-aging, anti-oxidant, anti-microbial properties and could prevent cardiovascular diseases and promote immunity.
Consumption of shiitake for 4 weeks led to an increase in the proliferation of gamma-delta T lymphocytes (60% more) and NK-T lymphocytes (twice more), indicating better functioning of these immune cells. There was also an elevation in interleukin IL-4, TNF-alpha and IL-1alpha levels. At the same time, inflammation seemed lower as suggested by the reduction of inflammatory proteins (CRP and macrophage inflammatory protein).
Echinacea acts on several areas: stimulation of macrophages (killer cells of toxins and intruders), increase in the number of white blood cells, protection of healthy cells against germs.
Numerous studies have proven that turmeric can fight many bacteria.
Propolis improves the body's defenses against bacterial, fungal and viral infections, thanks to stimulation of the immune system and its antibiotic properties. It targets conditions of the respiratory system and the ENT sphere through its anti-inflammatory, antitussive and anesthetic effects.
