Happy Wednesday Friend!
Let’s talk about your immune system!
Your immune system is made up of a network of cells, tissues, and organs that work together to protect the body from getting sick.
There are two basic types of these germ-fighting cells:
1. phagocytes (say: FAH-guh-sytes), which get rid of invading germs
2. lymphocytes (say: LIM-fuh-sytes), which allow the body to recognize previous invader
Your lymphatic system has lots of phagocytes and lymphocytes. You know when you’re fighting something off and your glands and swollen in your throat? Well, those are actually lymph nodes (which are all throughout your body) full of germ fighting cells. Normally you wouldn’t notice your lymph nodes, however, when they become swollen it’s hard not to notice them. When your lymph nodes are swollen it means your body is hard at work fighting off bad germs.
Okay, so that’s awesome! We have a built in army to fight bad germs. But is it enough to keep us from getting sick? Not always. That’s where Young Living’s supplement Inner Defense comes in!
Inner Defense is an essential oil supplement that supports the immune system. It helps us be extra prepared to fight those germy battles. Inner Defense contains potent essential oils like oregano, thyme, and Thieves® which are rich in thymol, carvacrol, and eugenol for immune system support. Inner Defense reinforces systemic defenses, creates unfriendly terrain for yeast/fungus, and promotes healthy respiratory function. The liquid softgels dissolve quickly for maximum results. The capsule has been reformulated with fish gelatin to remove the need for carrageenan and bees wax used in the porcine gelatin based softgel.
Several women have taken Inner Defense while pregnant with great results. It is not recommended for use in children under the age of 12. Its best when taken 8 hours before Life 9 (a probiotic supplement by Young Living) and not on an empty stomach.
Now, what are you going to do to support that immune system going into Fall?
