AFA + Protect 


Complete Nutritional Support for Maximum Immune Support 

AFA + Protect contains an immense amount of whole food-based micronutrients and bioactive compounds focused on supporting your immune system.  

Your immune system functions optimally when the wide range of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, omega 3’s, enzymes, and antioxidants from AFA is paired with the bioactive compounds of Protect's 8 functional mushrooms. AFA raises your baseline nutrient levels, further enhancing the work of Protect’s immunomodulatory polysaccharides, polyphenols, and terpenes. This pairing supports a robust defense against invading bacteria, viruses, pathogens, antigens, and mediators of tissue damage. For maximum effect, you should combine this pairing with a real whole-food diet, regular exercise, sunshine and time in nature, and less sugar and alcohol. Stress management and good sleep will also support a fully functioning immune system.

 

AFA is a powerhouse for your immunity

 

AFA contains one of the highest amounts of Chlorophyll A which is the compound that gives AFA its green color. With magnesium at its center, Chlorophyll A cleanses the blood to slow the spread of invading cells and protects DNA during crucial cell division. AFA increases NK cell activity and the number of T marker and interferon cells which are immune modulators. Coenzyme Vitamin B6 activates over 60 enzyme systems that play a role in the production of red blood cells and immune cells. AFA also contains chelated vitamins A, and C plus complete B vitamins all chelated meaning these vitamins are pre-loaded with the minerals they need to work. 

 

Phycocyanin is a rare bioactive compound responsible for the striking blue color pigment in AFA. It is an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory compound that protects the cell receptors and supports the immune system. Recently approved by the FDA for research and is a new “ hot spot” for research. Phycocyanin is nature's first and ultimate antioxidant.

 

Stress plays a large role in how well your immune system functions. When the body is under stress it absorbs key nutrients in particular L-Arginine whose main focus is to bio-stimulate the Thymus gland, the engine for your immune system. When under stress the body absorbs the amino acid L-Arginine which means there is no longer enough L-Arginine available to support the Thymus gland, under stressful conditions. Other important minerals that support immune system function are; copper, iron, and zinc, all of which are present and absorbable in AFA

 

White blood cells also called T cells travel in our lymphatic fluid and give chemical orders to Natural Killer Cells. NK cells originate in bone marrow and mature in the thymus gland. NK cells shoot a phospholipase powered by zinc to kill off invading bacteria or viruses. The thymus gland needs zinc and L-arginine to produce active and energetic T cells and activate NK cells that protect regenerating cell walls with an interferon shield of sorts and stimulate protein synthesis so they can have strong cell walls.

 

Beta carotenes work to biostimulant the thymus gland responsible for crucial immune system functioning. Free Radical protection of immune cells is supported by antioxidant superoxide dismutase (SOD.) Specific immune system minerals chromium, copper, germanium, iron, and zinc all work together in concert to optimize your immune system's functionality. AFA even contains a small amount of polysaccharides that are associated with supporting the macrophage cells. Vitamin C daily is required for active white blood cells and AFA contains about 5 times that of spirulina and chlorella.

 

Antioxidant Beta Carotene other carotenoids and micronutrients stimulate the thymus gland and immunity cells to function properly killing off invading pathogens. Our immune cells receive specific protection from Beta carotene and a selenium-dependent enzyme glutathione peroxidase. AFA is truly a nutrient antioxidant-dense real food that is a champion for your immune system because it contains all the required compounds to maximize your immune potential.

 

Protect 8 Mushroom Blend

  • Cordyceps
  • Reishi
  • Agaricus Blazei
  • Maitake
  • Chaga
  • Turkey Tail
  • Lion's Mane
  • Shiitake


 Our Protect functional mushroom blend contains a variety of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants co-factors as it is a tinctured extract from a whole food source. However, for immunity, the power lies in the various immunomodulatory polysaccharides, terpenes, and polyphenols in these 8 mushrooms. These highly functional bioactive compounds fine-tune your immune system. Mushrooms can help to reduce the inflammatory response caused by pro-inflammatory cytokines and allow for T cells, B cells, and antibodies to work more effectively. Protect contains a very high amount of immune boost bioactive compounds and when paired with AFA makes a formidable duo.
