NurtiFeron Review

NurtiFeron Review

This review is going to take a closer look at NurtiFeron. It is an immune boosting supplement offered by Shaklee that is formulated to increase your bodies own production of interferon.

According to Wikipedia, interferons are proteins made and released by great number cells in response to the presence of pathogens-such as viruses, bacteria, or parasites-or tumor cells. They allow communication between cells to cause the protective defenses of the immune system that eradicate pathogens or tumors. Interferons have other roles: they activate immune cells, such as natural killer cells and macrophages; they increase recognition of infection or tumor cells by up-regulating antigen presentation to T lymphocytes; and they increase the ability of uninfected great number cells to resist new infection by virus. Certain great number symptoms, such as aching muscles and fever, are related to the production of interferons during infection.

In 1954 world-renowned immunologist Dr. Yasuhiko Kojima first discovered interferon. After 40 years of research, testing hundreds of natural compounds, he developed a rare blend of four powerful plant extracts that contributes the body’s natural production of interferon. He named it NutriFeron & it is the only dietary supplement obtainable in the USA produced by the man who discovered interferon. NutriFeron is exclusive to Shaklee.

Interferons & EBV

Production of the natural virus-fighter, interferon, is decreased in fatigued athletes, but it can be restored to normal levels with a “probiotic” pill containing the advantageous microbe Lactobacillus acidophilus. The drop in interferon levels may play a role in the defective immune response against Epstein Barr virus (EBV), before described in fatigued athletes. Most people have been infected with EBV; it can cause a number of diseases, including mononucleosis, and it has been indicated in chronic fatigue syndrome. However, the virus is usually kept in check by interferon. Researchers tested for EBV in 24 saliva samples taken from eight fatigued athletes before and after receiving a 1-month course of the probiotic capsules. In addition, interferon levels were measured in blood samples. Prior to treatment, five of the subjects had EBV in their saliva – that is, they were shedding the virus because it was not being reigned in; after probiotic treatment, just one showed signs of virus shedding.

Interferon for MS & Cancer Patients

There are current studies being done on how interferon supplements can assistance MS & cancer patients. At this time I did not find anything conclusive, but will continue to read the latest research. I read it is being used, but it looks like all situations are different, so I can’t conclusively say it works for all. Speaking with your doctor may help you decide if it will work in your situation.

After all my reading I have found that most people are using NutriFeron to raise their immunity to better fight the shared cold, the stomach flu & side affects from PMS & menopause. Please do your research & see if NutriFeron can be a assistance for you or someone you love!
