Stress and Immune Function

Guest post courtesy content partners Labrix Clinical Services

tiger-500118_1920Since the dawn of time humans have responded to pressure from the environment such as predation and natural disaster. The ability to withstand these stressors were dependent upon physiological responses that supported survival, such as the increase of oxygen and glucose to the heart and large skeletal muscles to enable the fight or flight response. Stressful situations such as fighting and fleeing carry with it the risk of injury and subsequent infection. Since fleeing usually interferes with proper wound care, stress-induced adaptive changes in the immune system took hold to accelerate wound read more…

Avipaxin and Modulation of the Immune System

David Marc, M.B. , Deanna Fall, B.A. & Kelly Olson Ph.D .

Avipaxin is a dietary supplement that contains huperzine A (HupA), L-alpha-glycerylphosphorylcholine (α-GPC), and acetyl-L-carnitine to support acetylcholine levels and function. HupA is a powerful central nervous system (CNS) acetylcholinesterase (AChE) inhibitor and has been proposed as a natural agent to promote healthy immune system function. α-GPC is a natural choline compound, and acetyl-L-carnitine acts as an acetyl donor to support the synthesis of acetylcholine. The immunomodulatory effects of Avipaxin may be mediated by support of acetylcholine levels and activity. Avipaxin appears to regulate systemic immune activation by read more…

Case Study: The Effectiveness of a Dietary Supplement Regimen in Reducing Igg-Mediated Food Sensitivity in ADHD

Barry W. Ritz, MS, Richard S. Lord, PhD

Immunologic response to allergens varies depending on the level of exposure. Low-exposure antigens, such as house dust and pollen, trigger immunoglobulin E (IgE) antibody recognition, which results in histamine release and a cascade of immunologic events designed to sequester and destroy the antigen. On some occasions, these events, cumulatively termed a type I reaction, can escalate to the severity of anaphylaxis and death. In contrast, relatively high-exposure antigens, including molds and certain occupational exposures and food proteins that pass through a damaged mucosa, generally result in a mixture of immunoglobulin activity read more…
