Pro V Guard™ RSpi Well-Immune™ Complex is a carefully formulated wide-spectrum immune modulator that modulates both innate and adaptive immune responses, helping support immune system health. The immune system declines as we age, making us more susceptible to various diseases and pathogens. Immune system health is closely related to stress, frequency of exercise, and nutritional status.
Poor intake of vital nutrients is closely associated with depressed immune response and increased rate of disease. The immune system has two primary defence mechanisms: Innate, which uses white blood cells and physical barriers to protect against disease, and acquired (or adaptive), in which specialized cells generate antibodies to defend against specific pathogens.
Antiplatelet drugs, such as aspirin, prevent blood cells called platelets from clumping together to form a clot. Blood thinners may interact with certain foods, medicines, vitamins, and alcohol. Pro V Guard™ is beneficial before and during hospitalisation and will not affect blood clotting.
Preoperative care: Care given before surgery when physical and psychological preparations are made for the operation, according to the individual needs of the patient. The preoperative period runs from the time the patient is admitted to the hospital or surgicenter to the time that the surgery begins.
The RSpi Well-Immune™ Complex fights free radicals. Free radicals are unstable molecules that readily react with other molecules, especially oxygen, to change their chemical composition. Antioxidants are used by the body to scavenge for free radicals and limit the amount of damage they can cause. The RS Well-Immune® high antioxidant complex will help reduce the effect that free radicals have on the immune system thereby strengthening the immune system in general.When taking antibiotics, both the harmful bacteria and the beneficial bacteria are killed. A reduction of beneficial bacteria can lead to digestive problems - such as yeast infections, diarrhea and urinary tract infections. It is suggested that supplemental probiotics is beneficial and may reduce the risk of developing these conditions.
Patients with diabetes mellitus (DM) have infections more often than those without DM. The course of the infections is also more complicated in this patient group. One of the possible causes of this increased prevalence of infections is defects in immunity. Besides some decreased cellular responses in vitro, no disturbances in adaptive immunity in diabetic patients have been described. Different disturbances (low complement factor 4, decreased cytokine response after timulation) in humoral innate immunity have been described in diabetic patients. However, the clinical relevance of these findings is not clear. Concerning cellular innate immunity most studies show decreased functions (chemotaxis, phagocytosis, killing) of diabetic polymorphonuclear cells and diabetic monocytes/macrophages compared to cells of controls. In general, a better regulation of the DM leads to an improvement of these cellular functions. Furthermore, some microorganisms become more virulent in a high glucose environment. Another mechanism which can lead to the increased prevalence of infections in diabetic patients is an increased adherence of microorganisms to diabetic compared to nondiabetic cells. This has been described for Candida albicans. Possibly the carbohydrate composition of the receptor plays a role in this phenomenon. Ref. Pubmed PMID: 10575137
