What is Immuna Santé?
Immuna Santé is a product considered a "natural vaccine" that offers a safe and effective way to enjoy good health and physical well-being. Immuna Santé acquired its name from the word "immunity" which comes from the Latin "immunitas" meaning "free of charge" and, therefore, in the case of health, free from disease.
The immune system defends against pathogens such as viruses, bacteria, parasites, etc. The previously mentioned pathogens can weaken the immune system but are not the only ones. Pollution, free radicals, poor diet, stress, fatigue, etc. are all things that can negatively affect the immune system.
The body is generally well-equipped to deal with internal and external immune aggressors. When the natural defence mechanisms are profoundly unbalanced, it is essential to intervene and do everything possible to rebuild and improve the system’s resistance to defend itself against any attack and thereby maintain an optimal state of health.
The entire bibliography presented below demonstrates the absence of side effects. It supports the use of the components of the product achieving a combined antibacterial, antiviral, anti-inflammatory and immunostimulant (stimulating the immune defense) effect.
Immuna Santé can help treat and prevent all viral and bacterial diseases by strengthening the immune system and increasing its defense capacity against external aggressors. It can also be used as a curative product at the beginning of the disease alone or with antibiotics.
What is the advantage of Immuna Santé?
It has been almost a century since the introduction of antibiotics in therapy, and during this time, the field of antimicrobial medication has been enriched by numerous acquisitions. Apart from the immense benefits of antibiotics, a series of negative aspects arise mainly due to the irrational prescription of antibiotics (eg C. Difficile).
Antibiotic therapy has been and continues to represent a revolution in medicine. Still, the experience accumulated so far has shown that the only way to continue benefiting from the therapeutic virtues of antibiotics is the competent and rational prescription of these.
Saying s drug without any toxicity exists is pharmaceutical nonsense, hence the need to use alternative therapy to treat bacterial and viral infections. In this context, we used alternative therapy and formulated Immuna Santé.
How to maximize the therapeutic effect of Immuna Santé?
Due to its antioxidant effect, a concomitant administration of Vitamin C reinforces the therapeutic action of the product. In curative use, rigorous administration during the first five days maximizes the therapeutic effect.
What are the main effects of Immuna Santé?
Strengthening of the immune system and prevention of platelet aggregation. Fights sinusitis, pharyngitis, urinary infections, as well as mycotic infection, colds, flu, intestinal viruses, and viral and bacterial infections. It eliminates free radicals and is a powerful antioxidant.
The Active Components of Immuna Santé
The Immuna Santé product represents the synergistic effect obtained by combining all the components described below. The use of the product over the past 25 years has allowed us to prove its effectiveness (reduction of symptoms such as pharyngitis, laryngitis, fever, etc.). Without having carried out organized clinical trials, our observations following laboratory examinations within the framework of annual health check-ups show that in prolonged use, the product does not cause side effects and that the biochemical parameters have not been altered.
The "antibiotic" effect of propolis is presented in the monograph "Apiphytotherapy" by A. Greceanu and V. Enciu.
The effect which has been studied in vitro on many microbial strains such as staphylococcus aureus, salmonella, proteus pasteurlla, listera monocytogenes, B. Antracis, B. Cereus, Cl perfingens. Ilomiteanu and his collaborators demonstrated the antifungal effect of propolis for the following strains: candida albicans, claudosporium.
The mechanism of antimicrobial action of propolis is provided by its fractions, p-oxi- and p-metoxibenzoic acid and ac-pcummarinic (S.A. Papravko, in vol "New research in api-therapy" 1976 p 158).
The anti-inflammatory mechanism of action is provided by the phenolic ester of caffeic acid (caffeic acid phenethyl ester), (Natarajan K, Singh S, Burke Tr Jr, et al, Proc, Natl, Acd Sci 1996, 9090-9095).
A. Ravina, considers that flavonoids accelerate the process of destruction of pathogens by improving the ability of macrophages to neutralize them. The transformation of macrophages into antigens is, therefore faster and the lymphocytes - T can intervene more efficiently. According to A. Ravina, flavonoids have anti-inflammatory and immunostimulant effects.
According to Bors et al, 1995, the diyroflavonoids which make up the majority of propolis have a synergistic effect for the human body and, more particularly, that of fixing vitamin C. The antibacterial effect with a broad spectrum is presented throughout the article, "Propolis Research" by Dr. Stefan Stangaciu. In his article, Dr Stangaciu supports the antimicrobial activity of propolis by its components: pinocembrin, galangin, caffeic acid, ferulic acid and the antifungal activity by the presence of substances such as pinocembrine, pinobanskine, caffeic acid, benzyl ester, sakurantine and the pterosilibins.
In the same article, Dr. Stangaciu supports the antiviral activity of propolis by the presence of caffeic acid, lutseoline and quercitin. Japanese researchers have demonstrated that propolis extracts are responsible for macrophage activation by activating the human body's immune responses (Moryasu, et al 1993).
In the journal article "Recent trends and important developments in propolis research" by Vassya Bankova, the author demonstrates the anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and anti-viral activity of propolis regardless of its country of importation.
The recommended doses of Immuna Santé contain the maximum recommended dose of propolis, ie 1.2g per day. All the articles consulted show no toxicity or side effects. Some articles recommend higher doses, up to 3g, 3 times a day, except for allergy sufferers. There are no known interactions between propolis and any other herb or medicine.
The results of a trial comparing the effectiveness of propolis (3% propolis), an acyclovir ointment (classic drug for the treatment of herpes) and a placebo, with 90 subjects, indicate that propolis is more effective than placebo and medication in curing genital herpes lesions and alleviating symptoms (Vynograd N, Vy ograd I, Sosnowski Z. "A comparative multi-centre study of the efficacy of propolis, acyclovir and placebo in the treatment of genital herpes (HSV).Phytomedicine.2000 Mar;7(1):1-6).
S. Era demonstrated the antioxidant effect of propolis in the study "The influence of propolis ingestion on redox state of human serum albumin: a study of patient under severe oxidative stress". The study demonstrates that the absorption of propolis supplements attenuated the oxidation level during radiation therapy. Moreover, a gradual increase in the value of HMA indicates that the propolis's antioxidant properties can increase a patient's total antioxidant capacity.
Like Propolis, Echinacea is effective as an antiviral and antibacterial. All clinical tests have proven its immuno-modulatory, anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and antiviral effects. Echinacea monographs state that a dosage as low as 250 mg per day produced a therapeutic effect and was in no way toxic to patients.
The therapeutic effect of echinacea is attributed to its high molecular weight polysaccharides. The antimicrobial, antiviral and anti-inflammatory mechanism of action is ensured by its fractions which increase the activity of T lymphocytes which, in turn, will stimulate phagocytosis in several ways. For example, they will increase the activity of macrophages, produce interferon, and increase the number of circulating neutrophils. Several types of blood proteins are involved in immune responses, such as interferon, interleukin, which increases the number of circulating B lymphocytes, and properdin, which is responsible for complement activation.
Echinacea very effectively stimulates the immune system, a natural antibiotic, anti-infective and anti-inflammatory, with propolis it prevents the development of sinusitis, laryngitis, rhinitis, nasopharyngitis, prevents winter diseases, dental abscess and viral diseases.
Echinacea is to be taken during seasonal changes or when people around you begin to develop various respiratory infections, especially if you think your immune system is weakened by an imbalance of the 4 pillars: sleep, stress, sport and diet.
N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine (NAC) is known for its role in regulating the immune system by producing "cytokines" which are crucial in limiting the production of TNF and thus reducing the risk of viral infections.
The product acts as an accelerator for producing glutathione, an essential antioxidant in the defence system against lung diseases. In addition, NAC may have a protective effect at the lung level by reducing the ability of bacteria to adhere to the lungs. The study by S. De Flora*, C. Grassi**, L. Carati "Attenuation of influenza-like symptomatology and improvement of cell-mediated immunity with long-term N-acetylcysteine treatment" demonstrates a significant reduction in the symptoms of influenza in patients who received NAC treatment as opposed to patients who received placebo.
The alleviation of influenza symptoms was significant in the population mainly composed of older people and patients with chronic non-respiratory diseases. These very positive results were particularly evident during the winter period when the risk of transmission of viral diseases was very high. In addition, the severity of symptoms was significantly reduced in patients who received NAC treatment, with their recovery in bed significantly reduced.
Significantly, 79% of patients receiving a placebo developed clinical disease compared to only 25% of patients receiving NAC treatment. Not to mention that NAC has successfully demonstrated that it can significantly prevent most influenza-related symptoms, including symptoms located in the respiratory tract, such as "coryza", "rhinorrhea", sore throat, "catarrh" and cough and myalgia-arthralgia".
