Like a magnificent castle, it must be surrounded by strong fortresses and soldiers. The fort was built of course to protect from enemy attacks who wanted to destroy the castle. Likewise with soldiers who are assigned to capture and protect enemies who try to sneak in. Likewise with the human body. There is a system that protects the human body from things that can disturb the body. This system is called the immune system
Our immune systems are vital to our overall and long-term health. Consisting of many different pieces including cells, tissues, and organs, the immune system is our biggest line of defence against germs and infections. Immune responses, when triggered, set out to remove interlopers from our internal systems.
Immune responses, when triggered, are set out to remove interlopers from our internal systems. Poor health can arise when someone’s immune system reacts weakly, or not at all. Alternately, the immune system can overreact, mistaking normal or healthy substances as foreign invaders. Both these situations interfere with optimal wellness.
How to Maintain the Immune System
- Maintain a Healthy Lifestyle
Maintaining a healthy lifestyle will boost the immune system . A healthy lifestyle can be started with adequate rest, getting used to being active, and arranging a regular lifestyle. You try to do this consistently.
- Pay attention to nutritional intake
The intake of nutrients contained in food is very influential on immunity. Lack of consumption of protein, vitamins and minerals will reduce immunity. Therefore, pay attention to the nutritional intake that you consume.
- Avoid Stress
Stressful conditions can trigger the body to release the hormone cortisol. If there is a lot of cortisol in the body, it will affect immunity. Therefore stress triggers the body’s immunity to decrease.
- Avoid the habit of Smoking and Drinking Alcoholic
Smoking and drinking alcoholic habits can reduce immunity. This of course must be stopped immediately. Because, gradually this habit will interfere with other bodily functions.
The immune system certainly has a big share in the human body. Like what has been explained above that the palace will not be gated without the fortress surrounding it. Likewise in the human body, what happens without the immune system. Is that right?
How Kratom Actually Improve My Immune System?
Kratom can help boost your immune system. Especially, in today’s pandemic, we need vitamins and medicines to maintain our immune system. Kratom can be the right choice. The immune-boosting effects of kratom are usually invariable and indirect. There are not a lot of studies conducted on this subject. However, it’s worth mentioning that kratom does help to eradicate a lot of bodily discomforts. Instead of resorting to a handful of pills, many users find it way healthier and better to intake kratom.
For instance, if you ever find yourself feeling a little under the weather or sense you might be catching a cold/flu, consuming kratom can give a sluggish immune system a little shake. It can remind it to get to work and fight off infections.
Kratom is really a preventive tool wherein if you maintain regular and steady doses, it may help you in the long-run. However, it is advised not to take it as a supplement solely for the purpose of boosting your immune system.
There are many different alkaloids in Kratom that do different things. 5 of which we understand can stimulate your immune system- which is great news in light of the global situation today.
Here are the kratom alkaloids that act as immunostimulants:
- Epicatechin: is known to be an antioxidant, antiaggregant, antibacterial, antidiabetic, antihepatitic anti-inflammatory, anti-leukemic, antimutagenic, antiperoxidant, antiviral, potential cancer preventative, and an alpha-amylase inhibitor. You may have heard of this before when you were told that dark chocolate was good for you- as it is often mentioned contained in dark chocolate. So hey if you MUST go to the grocery store, it can’t hurt to pick up some dark chocolate while you’re there.
- Isomitraphylline: while kratom contains an extremely small amount, this alkaloid is reported to be an immunostimulant, and an anti-leukemic (this alkaloid makes up less than 1% of the total alkaloid content found in Kratom).
- Isopteropodine: Immunostimulant
- Isorhynchophylline: Immunostimulant. Research shows this alkaloid also makes up less than 1% of the total alkaloid content found in Kratom leaf.
- Mitraphylline: while also reported to be a vasodilator, antihypertensive, muscle relaxer, diuretic, antiamnesic, and anti-leukemic, this alkaloid is also a possible immuno-stimulant. This alkaloid also makes up less than 1% of the total alkaloid content found in the Kratom leaf.
You should know that while all kratom leaves and powder may show, to some degree, immune-boosting effects – there are some strains which are better suited for this purpose, Red Bali Kratom Powder, White Indo, and Borneo Green Kratom.
So, There’s no doubt that kratom is a magic herb. If taken rightly with proper precaution and after thorough research, the overall benefits of this plant can be staggeringly amazing.
