Cytokine balance supports immune health

Balanced Immune Proteins for Immune Health


Do you know people who feel tired and unmotivated? Do they catch colds, flus and “bugs” easily? If so, their immune system is undoubtedly involved. Digging deeper, the balance of immune proteins is at the center.


Immune proteins are the work-horses of your immune system. They are indispensable. With balanced immune proteins, your immune system keeps you healthy. Invaders are defeated quickly and efficiently. Your energy level is high because energy isn’t wasted on continuing low-level battles. Your activity list is large, and you have time for friends. Life, in general, feels good. There is a sense of well-being. Glutrasol-IE provides balanced immune proteins.


Without a balanced mixture, the immune system doesn’t function as designed. Invaders aren’t defeated quickly. Instead, they linger. Perhaps there are no symptoms, but they still drain energy in a low-level battle. Life isn’t as sweet.

Balanced immune proteins promote wellness over sickness. As an example, consider that you and a friend ate a meal at an unsanitary restaurant. You both ordered the same meal. Your friend got very sick, and it lasted a few days. In contrast, you simply experienced a little discomfort and it passed quickly.

What happened? You had balanced immune proteins. Your friend did not.

Immune proteins communicate among cells and other proteins to orchestrate an overall immune response. That’s why balance is important. A full immune response involves multiple stages. Different proteins participate at different stages. Sometimes those stages are opposite in effect, but each stage is appropriate at its time.

Here’s what happened at the restaurant. Unfriendly bacteria (from the food) attacked the intestinal wall. The first response stage is inflammatory to destroy the bacteria. This is accompanied by a first set of immune proteins. The second stage might be removing the dead bacteria bodies. A second set of immune proteins operates. A third stage might be to shut down the inflammatory stage because the inflammatory work is done. Stem cells arrive in a fourth stage guided by a fourth set of immune proteins to replace damaged tissue. With the four stages, the intestinal wall is eventually restored.

Your friend had a deficit of immune proteins during one of the four stages. You had a balance. If your friend had taken Glutrasol beforehand, he would have had an easy time.
