Components of the Immunity Support Package

Components of the Immunity Support Package 

  • CTab
  • LugoTab 25mg 90 tablets
  • TurmeriTab 
  • A+D
  •  Copper/Zinc/Selenium
Each component of this package provides your immune system support in a different way!
-Vitamin C is a well known micronutrient essential during any flu fighting season.  Vitamin C contributes to immune defense by supporting various cellular functions of both innate (general) and adaptive (specific) immune system.  Vitamin C supports epithelial barrier function, a barrier that regulates nutrient absorption as well as prevents the invasion of pathogenic bacteria.  It is a potent antioxidant (substances that may protect your cells from free radicals) by promoting the oxidant scavenging of the skin.

-Iodine a trace element necessary for all tissues and organs in the body.  Iodine is not only necessary for the production of thyroid hormone, adequate levels are necessary for proper immune system function.
-Turmeric is included in the protocol because of curcumin.  Curcumin is the active component of Turmeric and is what gives Turmeric the yellow color.  Researchers have discovered it may be helpful for those who suffer from cold and flu symptoms.  Curcumin has the potential to reduce inflammation in the body linked to excessive coughing and sneezing, while increasing antioxidant capacity.

-Vitamins A and D work in a partnership that has been refined through time.  They must be supplemented together so that a "functional" deficiency is not created.  The pairing allows the two nutrients to balance, enhance, and contain each other through a receptor called RXR.  The result created a balanced, functioning immune system that does not swing into autoimmune disease, or have trouble handling pathogens.  A healthy immune system is linked to a healthy nervous system!  Want to read more about it?  Check out the article "Vitamin effects on the Immune System: Vitamins A and D take Center Stage" (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2906676/)
-Copper, Zinc, and Selenium.  Combining Copper, Zinc, and Selenium in a chelation (bonding of ions and molecules) with Arginine helps with bioavailability.  It is well known that when Copper and Zinc are combine it needs to be in a proper ration (8:1) for proper absorption, and this is what our pharmacist has expertly done!  Copper ions are considered to be an indispensable trace element in the immune homeostasis of the body.  There is a long history linking Zinc with optimal immune support.  Adequate levels of dietary Selenium play an important role in initiating immunity, but they are also involved in regulating excessive immune responses and chronic inflammation.

What is ATPBoost?  Why is it Important?

What is ATPBoost? Why is it Important?

Hakala Research offers ATPBoost, a combination of Vitamins B2 and B3. Each tablet combines 100mg of B2 (Riboflavin) and 500mg of B3 (Niacin as Insoitol Hexanicotinate, a no-flush Niacin).  This specific combination and dosage ensures that Iodine is activated once inside the cell.  Based off of customer feedback, we have updated the tablet size!

Here is why it is important:

“The amounts of Vitamins B2 and B3 must be sufficient to overcome deficiencies in the system.  Dr. G. Abraham’s research has shown that using 100mg of Vitamin B2 (riboflavin) and 500mg of Vitamin B3 (niacinamide) twice per day will help to stimulate ATP production and provide adequate H2O2 for oxidation of iodide.”

Basic action of mitochondria:

The NADPH Oxydase system is found in the mitochondria of our cells.  The mitochondria are the energy-producing cells of our body.  The mitochondria produce energy (ie ATP) through a complex process called oxidative phosphorylation.

ATP is the molecule that stores energy for the body.  The body is constantly producing and utilizing ATP.

There are two cofactors, Vitamins B2 (riboflavin) and B3 (niacin) that are integral to stimulating oxidative phosphorylation and ATP production.  Hydrogen peroxide is a byproduct of oxidative phosphorylation.  It is this production of hydrogen peroxide that is so critical to the oxidation process of iodine.  Hydrogen peroxide and TPO help to oxidize iodide to form iodine.

Regarding the early onset of the illness (autoimmune thyroid disorders):

They seems to be fueled by too much hydrogen peroxide damaging TPO and causing oxidative damage.  As the illness progresses, thyroid hormone production can become deranged.  Thyroid hormone is integral to stimulating the mitochondria to produce energy or ATP.  If the mitochondria are not producing enough energy molecules, fatigue will set it…it becomes necessary to try and stimulate the NADPH oxidase pathway…this pathway is integral to energy production. 

How do you increase the production of ATP in the mitochondria?  You can provide the correct co-factors in this pathway to increase the production of ATP.  Vitamins B2 (riboflavin) and B3 (niacin) are cofactors in the NADPH oxidase pathway and their use can help stimulate the mitochondria to produce more energy as well as provide the thyroid cells with enough H2O2 to properly oxidize iodide.

Magnesium's Role in Total Body Health

Scientists are beginning to recognize magnesium's role in protecting against a myriad of health issues. High magnesium intake has been associated with reducing the risks of cardiac death, heart disease, stroke, type II diabetes, asthma, hypertension, kidney disease, cognitive decline, and osteoporosis. Within the cell, magnesium plays essential roles in regulating cell signaling, insulin sensitivity, inflammation, converting chemical energy from food into useful energy for the body, and DNA maintenance and repair.
