How to Keep your Immune System Healthy




With covid floating around and the flu season at our doorstep, maintaining a healthy immune system has definitely become a priority!


As we are all well aware, practicing good hygiene is our best preventative measure against viral infections, but there are also things we can do to help the inside too.


Ocean Green Organic Seaweed capsules contain an abundance of nutrients that can support the body before, during and after sickness.


Fucoidan

  • Fucoidan is a unique seaweed compound, rapidly gaining interest for its immune system benefits.

  • In the body, fucoidan has been shown to promote activation of immune cells across several studies. For example, a human study showed elderly populations who regularly received fucoidan displayed a better response to the influenza vaccine, compared to those who received a placebo. The fucoidan-induced, improved vaccine response was attributed to increased immune cell activity.

  • Fucoidan has been shown to decrease the chemical markers of inflammation that occur during infection and the immune response. Fucoidan can also act as an antioxidant to counteract ‘free radical’ chemicals produced by infected cells and immune cells when fighting viral invaders, preventing tissue damage and further inflammation.


Prebiotics

  • Viruses such as COVID-19 and the common cold have been reported to alter the gut microbiome. Antibiotics used to treat bacterial infections can also hinder gut health. Therefore, it is important to support the gut microbiome during sickness.

  • Our seaweed capsules support the growth of good gut bacteria with prebiotic compounds that feed the resident microbes. (See our previous article on gut motility for more information).



Vitamin and Mineral Boost

  • When we’re feeling a bit under the weather, it is common to experience a decreased appetite. To ensure we are still getting enough micronutrients, Ocean Green Seaweed capsules offer a variety of vitamins and minerals to support the body during infection.
