These conditions involve chronic inflammatory diseases in which the immune system attacks the joints and sometimes other parts of the body. The cause of the problems remains unknown. In autoimmune diseases the immune system attacks the body’s own tissue as though it were a foreign invader. People with rheumatic conditions may have other symptoms, including weakness, fatigue, weight loss, and, occasionally, fever.
High Potency Multiple Vitamin and Mineral
A high potency multiple vitamin and mineral should contain important doses of antioxidants shown to reduce inflammation, along with B-vitamins and magnesium – all of which work with essential fatty acids to reduce inflammation and pain.
Essential Fatty Acids
An Essential fatty acid should contain the exact complement of essential fatty acids that are converted by the body into anti-inflammatory hormones. The production of anti-inflammatory prostaglandin hormones (series 1 and 3) are vital to long term successful management of various types of arthritis.
Herbal Detoxifiers and Immune Support
Herbal detoxifiers and immune support should contain two highly effective herbal agents that exert important bioregulation of the immune system. In autoimmune diseases certain aspects of the immune system are over-active, which results in an unrelenting attack on the body’s healthy cells, often accompanied by inflammation and pain. Natural agents can tone down the over-active aspects of the immune system, exerting important bioregulation of immune function for individuals suffering from autoimmune disease. This supplement also contains two natural agents that improve detoxification, another important aspect of long-term management of autoimmune disease.
Nutrients Enhancing Glutathione
A nutrients enhancing glutathione should contain key ingredients that bolster tissue levels of glutathione, which is a key cellular antioxidant and detoxification agent. These nutrients also support immune function, eliminate toxic metals from the body, and help to suppress the inflammatory process. Ingredients in this supplement also help to protect the kidneys against damage from the autoimmune process – a vital consideration in many autoimmune conditions.
Digestive Enzymes and Prebiotics
Digestive enzymes and prebiotics should contain a full complement of digestive enzymes as well as prebiotics. The digestive enzymes improve digestion and reduce the complication of leaky gut problems. Many autoimmune inflammatory conditions are aggravated partially digestive food matter entering the circulation and triggering an immune-inflammatory reaction. The prebiotics support the growth of friendly bacteria, which have been shown to suppress inflammation in a variety of autoimmune conditions, by exerting important bioregulation effects on the body’s immune system.
Natural Anti-Inflammatory Herbs
A natural anti-inflammatory herb should contain the four most powerful anti-inflammatory herbs shown in clinical trials to combat the inflammation of various autoimmune diseases, by decreasing the production of inflammatory prostaglandin hormones. The curcumin content also blocks the release of key inflammatory cytokines produced by immune cells, which a classic part of the autoimmune process.
