Viruses vs. Immune System
Viruses vs. Immune System
Never underestimate the little opponents:
you see a lion, no a virus
We are called to respect life.
We are called to respect nature, to others and to ourselves.
And I feel called to do my part and inform.
The only thing we can do right now? Eat better.
Right in respect of ourselves and of our concerns which are not currently good food for thought (and for the immune system) is good to remember that what we eat and digest will be for us a right fuel, a just healing energy or a product and toxic waste which over time can ruin our health.
In the automotive field, for example, we are called mechanical breakdown, electrical, electronics, and it comes to repairing the body while we talk about the disease and treatment or support to health.
We know that the gastrointestinal system extracts (if we give them to him) micronutrients from food.
We know that the intestine of a healthy individual is populated largely by different bacterial strains defined diners or "good bacteria", lactobacilli and bifidobacteria in particular. These, in their entirety, go to form the bacterial flora interacting not only among themselves but also with other microorganisms (fungi, archaea etc.) And with the host, for example by influencing the metabolism of certain nutrients, the production of certain neurotransmitters (serotonin etc.), the activity and the expression of agents involved in the immune response (cytokines, lymphocytes, dendritic cells, pro / anti-inflammatory agents etc.).
You can make continuous research in books, specialized sites and not, for aware of the existence of a continuous relationship and unity between every existing pathology and bacterial intestinal flora because an alteration of the latter is able to maintain state individual's health or cause disease.
There is also a clear relationship with the mood to the point that many neurotransmitters are produced in the gut including serotonin. Moreover, relations between the nutrients we eat, between the intestinal flora and the human body are not limited to general immune system, but on almost all other systems and devices.
Every disease receives from the food aid budget that is active during the pathological state in different ways.
Know some nutritional information allows us to face any acute or chronic psychophysical problem with science and common sense.
Worrying means taking care of something that might not happen and often does not happen, however preattivarsi allows us to precisely take action earlier to avoid and prevent problems such as those that we face today as against coronavirus infection COVID-19.
How Marche doctor with national and international regional offices that is at this time an ugly reality that is spreading throughout Italy and the world relentlessly, I dedicate to his friend Antonio Ruggio President of the International Association of Masseurs I belong and her friend Tamila Rzaeva President of the Ukrainian Union of spa professionals, resorts and wellness facilities of Ukraine, founder and teacher of the International SPA Academy, head of the Global Event SPA in Ukraine and all his working group of the Grand Massage & Wellness Congress, these precautions some healthy rules to find out if we are eating foods with micronutrients inside useful to our immune system, or if we are activating energy wasted by the gastrointestinal tract to absorb little or nothing.
The energies they need and they know it, for example, my cancer patients because of cancer and therapies have many problems including digestive difficulties of absorption and immune system weaknesses that need to be built with the diet and nutrition.
What are the 'friends' foods that can boost immunity, and preferred in this time of medical emergency coronavirus? To answer this I provide some rules to support the immune system so that everyone, families and friends can use them in remembering to follow proper infection anti behavioral norms that the virus is necessary but not sufficient condition to infection.
As it takes two to make a quarrel, so it takes two to make a disease, virus and its host.
The host immune system must fail and allow the virus to infect the body, most difficult for the latter to children and young people feel that as well by the statistics having a good immune system or not contract the virus or are asymptomatic or have milder symptoms.
For this reason, strengthening the immune system with the right style food, the right advice, the right information and the right recognized functional foods from the scientific point of view and not advertising but on their proven effectiveness, is a further important antiviral weapon for us all.
The strongest and most important defense we have today against viruses, in the absence of drugs is our immune system.
As mentioned nutrition plays an essential role in the development and maintenance of the immune system. On the one hand the nutritional deficiencies can impair the immune response and make us more vulnerable to infections. On the other hand, a good nutritional status can prevent the onset of disease (not only infectious) and the immunosuppression. The resistance to infection (which can be caused by viruses or bacteria) - can be improved by providing vitamins and minerals the body functional food antioxidants. These are molecules that help to defend themselves from pests and the state of oxidative stress. Often with a type of diet that I eat << >> there's no rules and no clear information is the danger of micronutrient malnutrition.
One day broke out a huge forest fire. All the animals came out of their holes and ran away scared. As if gave legs like everyone else, the lion, the king of the forest, he saw a small hummingbird flying in the opposite direction. << But where are you going? >> he asked the Lion to hummingbirds << There is a huge fire we have to run away >>.
The hummingbird replied
<< I go to the lake to collect water with its beak to throw it over the fire >>.
Then the lion snapped:
<< Are you completely mad? You do not think you can put out a huge fire with 4 drops of water ...... >>. The
hummingbird replied << I just do my part >>.

ALOE VERA GEL
The pharmacological activity of Aloe vera is very complex because the chemical constituents of the plant are very numerous, he Aloe synergistic therapeutic effects are the result of the interaction of the active ingredients with receptive molecules of the human organism. Even scientific publications and clinical studies, are many and continuous. In the market, however, it is often sold the juice and do not gel even when sometimes it is written in the gel pack then in the ingredients is written juice or pulp at most but not gel.
Why. What is the difference?
Answering this question is crucial to be able to better choose the product best suited to our needs and characteristics, yet the topic is very superficially or even is not treated, but not in this case. The aloe vera juice is extracted from the leaves. After its extraction, the Aloe juice (yellow) is condensed with the heat and transformed into a shiny mass (similar to the broken glass) with shades of color ranging from greenish-yellow to red-black. To obtain the juice is used the most superficial part of the leaf. In fact, just below the epidermis are the tubules periciclici (specialized cells) that contain it. The remaining part of the leaf, in particular the gel which is located in the central part, It is used to derive the Aloe Vera gel. The real Aloe Vera juice, then, is a vitreous mass and is used in small quantities (a few milligrams) to combat constipation. In fact, this juice shows an important laxative activity, due to its anthraquinone glycosides (Aloin A and B, and calls barbaloin isobarbalina respectively). 0.025 grams are enough to produce a strong laxative action after 6/12 hours after ingestion. To date, the use of pure Aloe Vera juice is limited, both because it can cause important abdominal pain, both for the stringency of its effect. Use it or recommending it can cause several problems to the digestive tract: It is a vitreous mass and is used in very small amounts (a few milligrams) to combat constipation.

Use it or recommending it can cause several problems to the digestive tract:
Ejecting rich mucus or feces with traces of blood Risk of Nephritis
Not only that, the long period of service (4/12 months) can also lead to the occurrence of melanosis of the colon.
That's because they often can not be taken for extended periods.
The use of aloe juice is recommended especially so for:
Who takes drugs in particular potassiurici, such as thiazide diuretics, licorice and cortisone etc
Women who are pregnant or breast-feeding, since the anthraquinones are absorbed and may pass into the milk and during menstrual flow
Who has problems such as gastritis, colitis, generalized gastrointestinal inflammation, varicose veins, anal fistulas, Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis, appendicitis
The Aloe Vera gel instead, particularly rich in mucilage, has an entirely different therapeutic applications of those of juice. In fact, a beverage Aloe Vera gel, is used for internal use in the case in which it circles the lenitive and protective action of mucilage (gastritis, colitis, esophagitis, etc.). In the case in which there are of particular pathologies, there are no negative interactions with drugs or also the gel is used daily as a multivitamin, natural moisturizing and mineralizing, immunomodulatory etc. It is the gel that has active role.
At the conclusion of this speech, we understand very well that over time even the companies producing products with Aloe Vera have begun to use the terms juice and improperly gel. Because? Why beverages that are referred to as Aloe Vera juice are simply made from Aloe vera gel which is diluted. The consistency of the product, then, varies depending on the percentage of pure gel which is used. The main difference is merely a corporate marketing policy. So we do not underestimate the importance of the labels and the list of ingredients that are shown. The label (and the study of the components), is currently the only way to find out how natural and beneficial is the product we have bought or recommended.
The therapeutic properties
Antioxidant and anti-aging aloe vera gel:
The minerals (especially manganese, copper, selenium) contained in the Aloe gel are the constituents of the enzymes superoxide dismutase and glutathione peroxidase, two important antioxidant and anti-aging agents phone. The nonessential amino acid proline, is a constituent part of the much collagen in the skin. The saponins also promote better and faster cellular exfoliation. The vitamins (especially vitamin C, E, B2, B6) and non-essential amino acid, cysteine, are powerful antioxidants thus able to fight the cellular damage caused by free radicals and particularly by superoxide. In particular, the cysteine and the vitamins of the B group are able to bind to toxic molecules arising from pathological processes to form inert compounds. IS' now it is known that oxidative stress is favored by chemical, physical, biological, mental and nutritional; It accelerates the physiological process of cellular aging and is responsible for several degenerative diseases. It can therefore understand how important the constant intake of Aloe gel in the diet: the recommended daily dose should not be less than 100 ml of pure gel
healing and skin restoring activity of Aloe vera gel:
It is an activity directly related to the anti-inflammatory. The Aloe vera stimulates the formation of fibroblasts, precursors of skin epithelial cells, and connective tissue. In this process of repair and epithelial tissue formation, intervene definitely polysaccharides as primary factors; the latter factors seem to be plant hormones, gibberellins and auxins. Studies show the ability of Aloe gel in preventing progressive dermal ischemia caused by radiation and burns, and the effectiveness of the gel in the treatment of diabetic ulcers, chronic ulcers and psoriasis. Aloe vera is effective for topical use and for internal use, in the treatment of diabetic leg ulcers. In addition to facilitating wound healing (9), Aloe vera also has a hypoglycemic effect. In a double-blind study it was evaluated the efficacy and tolerability of a Aloe vera gel 0.5% in a hydrophilic cream in the treatment of patients with Psoriasis vulgaris. Sixty patients (36 males and 24 females) aged between 18 and 50 years with mild to moderate plaque psoriasis, they were included in the study and distributed in random mode into two groups. Patients a cream packaging has been provided by 100g containing placebo or active ingredients (Aloe vera gel 0.5%); they had to apply the product (without occlusion) 3 times a day, five consecutive days per week, for no more than four weeks. The follow-up of patients took place on a monthly basis for 12 months. The treatment did not show any side effects.
Results are also reported for dermatitis, acne and seborrhea, and aphthous stomatitis.
antibacterial and antifungal activity of Aloe vera gel:
The antimicrobial effects of aloe vera are comparable to those of silver sulfadiazine, a sulfa antibiotic family very often used topically to prevent skin infections in burn patients. E 'was shown that the bactericidal action of Aloe is directly proportional to its concentration; in particular, extracts to 60% were active against Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Streptococcus pyogenes; extracts to 70% of Staphylococcus aureus, extracts to 80% of Escherichia coli and extracts to 90% of Candida albicans. It seems to have bactericidal action even towards Mycobacterium tubercolosise Bacillus subtilis. We mention only the fact that some glycosides contained in the Aloe vera gel also they exhibit antibiotic properties and that '
Antiviral activity of Aloe vera gel:
The acemannan in particular isolated in Aloe vera gel, presents significant antiviral activity against various viruses, for example HIV-1 and the Paramyxovirus (the measles virus) etc. In vitro studies have demonstrated that acemannan, in combination with sub-optimal concentrations of azidothymidina (ie AZT antiviral drug used for the treatment of AIDS) or acyclovir, acts synergistically inhibiting HIV and Herpes simplex replication. On the basis of these studies, it is therefore assumed to be able to use the acemannan to lower the concentration of AZT in the treatment of early stages of AIDS and thus reduce the severe side effects caused by the drug.
immunomodulatory activity of Aloe vera gel:
The acemannan, in aloe vera gel, is a powerful physiological stimulant of the immune system. It acts by stimulating the activity of macrophages, and with it the production of cytokines by macrophages themselves; It promotes the release of substances that enhance the immune system (such as nitric oxide that is to say nitrogen monoxide); It causes cellular morphological changes especially intervenes in the expression of surface antigens. The acemannan is able to enhance the activity of cellute T and to increase the production of interferon even if these actions may be related to the activity stimulation of macrophages. Dell'acemannano immunostimulatory activity was dose-dependent.
anti-inflammatory and analgesic activity of Aloe vera gel:
The Aloe vera plays a significant anti-inflammatory and analgesic action, for either topical application or oral, and its anti-inflammatory activity is mediated by inhibition of the production: of prostaglandins by the enzyme bradichinasi; of histamine by the magnesium lactate; and leukotrienes by particular glycoproteins such as aloctina A. The enzyme bradichinasi in aloe content, is capable of hydrolyzing bradykinin, an endogenous substance of polypeptide structure, responsible for numerous events characteristic of the inflammatory process: vasodilatation, increased vascular permeability, contractant action on the muscles, sensation of warmth, pain, redness, swelling; We may therefore say that Aloe vera is a great remedy anti-inflammatory and painkiller, thanks to its intense activity antibradichininica The magnesium lactate present in aloe, is capable of inhibiting the enzyme involved in the production of histamine, vasoactive substance involved in the inflammatory process. Even the aloctina A isolated in aloe, has proved to have good anti-inflammatory edema induced by carrageenan in rats reduces the swelling of the treated leg, the action is fast (about three hours after injection), dose-dependent and free of side effects. A similar result in the experimental model of arthritis induced in rats. Another component of Aloe vera with good anti-inflammatory properties is the C-glycosyl-cromone: the compound exhibits anti-inflammatory activity equivalent to that of hydrocortisone in the same dose and, unlike the drug,
