Immune function of M BODY and how its supporting your immune layers this winter

Immune function of M BODY and how its supporting your immune layers this winter

By now you have probably figured out just how beneficial M BODY is for your hormone health, inflammation and gut support.  In fact, the benefits stemming from the synergy of ingredients are numerous - we’re still counting all the benefits based on your feedback, our constant research and the evidence we see everyday. 

One of the main reasons there are so many symptoms that M BODY helps to treat is for its role in overall gut health and support.  That leads me to shining a light on immune function, especially as winter is now upon us. 

It is said that around 80% of your immune function is shaped via the gut.  The gut barrier is made up of various layers which act as a physical border between the contents of the gut and the internal environment of the body.  Each of these layers offer various support functions and include the enzyme, microbial, mucosal, immune and enteric layers, and work in synergy, as a protective barrier and to support overall health and wellbeing.

The immune layer, is where several immune functions take place, however, the function of the gut barrier relies on harmony of all layers, not just the immune layer to facilitate overall health and integrity. The outcome - a robust immune system.

There are many factors that can aid to damaging or compromising gut integrity some of which include;

+ Overuse of medications
+ Stress
+ Poor nutrition or a diet high in inflammatory foods 
+ Environmental factors
+ Overexertion or over exercising
+ Toxins and chemicals within food/water such a Glyphosate
+ Chronic inflammation 

We’ve spoken more about symptoms of what compromised gut health looks like in a previous musing 'Gut health isn't just a hype word' The role of the gut is not limited to immune function, but also digestion, assimilation of food, absorption of nutrients for fuel, emotional wellbeing, hormone regulation, creation and basically your master controller.  It is important that we give it the attention it deserves, if we want to continue to level up overall health.

The ingredients in The ABSOLUTE + MSM come together to work magic on various layers of the gut.  Slippery Elm and Partially Hydrolyzed Guar Gum helps to soothe and repair the mucosal barrier, Psyllium and Flaxseed help to feed good gut bacteria which are essential in maintaining the microbial layer. MSM is particularly important to assist in reducing inflammation and Chia helps support healthy enzymes. Finally, it is the sum of all these that helps support the immune layer.  What a win!

Looking after your immune system does not require a massive overall, but as you’ve just seen, it’s actually small little additions that add up to having amazing benefits.  We’re all about simple here at M BODY - simple food ingredients that become medicine for your body. 

It’s not supposed to be complicated, in fact the easiest is most likely the best.
