Noni and our Immune System

Noni and our Immune System

Our body has an amazing protection mechanism called the immune system. It is designed to defend us against millions of bacteria, microbes, viruses, toxins and parasites that would love to invade our body.....it is important to understand the immune system so that we give it the support needed to stay healthy...especially during cold and flu season!

An immune system is a collection of mechanisms within an organism that protects against disease by identifying and killing pathogens and tumor cells. It detects a wide variety of agents from viruses to parasitic worms, and distinguishes them from the organisms own healthy cells and tissues in order to function properly. Detection is complicated as pathogens adapt and evolve new ways to successfully infect the host organism.

When something dies, the immune system, along with everything else, shuts down. In a matter of hours, the body is invaded by all sorts of bacteria, microbes, parasites etc. None of these things are able to get in while our immune system is working, but the moment our immune system shuts down, the door is wide open.

The immune system is complex and interesting. Our immune system works around the clock, in thousands of largely unnoticed ways. It comes to our notice when it stops working, or when it does something that has a side effect we can see or feel. When we get a cut, bacteria and viruses enter our body and our immune system goes to work to eliminate the invaders and heal the skin. We inhale thousands of airborne germs every day. Our immune system deals with all of these, usually without a problem. Occasionally a germ gets past the immune system and the cut becomes infected or we catch a cold. The infected cut or cold or flu is a visible sign that our immune system failed to stop the germ. The fact that the cut heals and we recover from our cold is a visible sign that our immune system is able to eliminate the invader.

When our immune system is sluggish, works at less than full capacity or breaks down altogether, we get sick. The disease could take the form of a vitamin or mineral deficiency, organ degradation, diabetes, cancer or a viral or bacterial infection, to name just a few.

Components of the Immune System:

There are many parts of the immune system. The most visible is the skin. It acts as a primary boundary between germs and our body. Part of our skins job is to act as a barrier in much the same way we use plastic wrap to protect food. Skin is tough and generally impermeable to bacteria and viruses.
Our nose, mouth and eyes are also entry points for germs. Tears and mucus contain an enzyme called lysozyme that breaks down the cell wall of many bacteria, and saliva is also anti-bacterial. Once inside the body, a germ deals with the immune system at a different level. The major components of the immune systems are:

  • Thymus
  • Spleen
  • Lymph system
  • Bone marrow
  • White blood cells
  • Antibodies
  • Complement cells
  • Hormones

When the Immune System Breaks Down:

When the immune system breaks down it leaves the body susceptible to an array of diseases. Allergies and hyper-sensitivity to certain substances are considered immune system disorders. Other examples include auto-immune diseases such as juvenile diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis and anemia.

Man-made drugs may alleviate pain and symptoms from many ailments, but the side effects of those drugs are often as bad as or worse than the original disease. Drug companies and doctors freely admit prescribed drugs have side effects – they weigh up whether the ‘cure’ is worse than the disease.

Noni and the Immune System:

The best protection we can offer our body is to support and nourish the immune system before it weakens, becomes sluggish or breaks down altogether. Our body needs essential nutrients for it to function at peak performance. Taking a daily dose of Tahiti Trader 100% Organic Island Style Noni Juice provides the body with a natural “power pack” of the essential vitamins, mineral and nutrients that our immune system needs to protect us.

Research has shown that the chemical constituents of Noni juice assist in immune system modulation, increase energy, help with insomnia, relieve joint pain, help sprains and athletic injuries, give routine pain relief and help inflammation, help in the fight against cancer, improves skin condition, assists with hypertension, helps diabetes, lowers blood fat and assist cholesterol, helps gut and bowel remedies such as constipation and irregularity.

Whether we need to support our immune system to strengthen it to fight an existing disease, or support it to stay healthy, a daily dose of Tahiti Trader Original or Island Style Noni Juice improves and assists the immune system in its fight to keep us in good health.

BOOST YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM with a shot of Tahiti Trader Noni juice every morning. It is a great way to start your day on track, give you natural energy and give you and your family the immune system boost they need!

Since ancient times Noni juice has been valued for its effectiveness in fighting infections and other ailments attributing to the presence of valuable Polysaccharides. These helpful components stimulate the activity of white blood cells which play an important role in exerting such protective effect. Scopoletin present in Noni juice possess anti-bacterial, anti-mutagenic, anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal and anti-histamine properties which significantly contribute in sustaining the immune defense mechanism of the body.

There are Two Supplements That Really Charged Up the Immune System!

It is vitally important that you know that these two supplements are essential in your health revival program 

1. Noni works to modulate (turn up or down as needed) your immune system so it can work quickly to attack invaders, to help keep your health in tip-top shape.  Noni also works as an anti-viral, anti-bacterial agent for you too.  Noni activates your “killer cells”, works to fight inflammation, protects/promotes the liver function, and signals the release of serotonin to help you feel better too! And that is just the beginning. I recommend taking 2-ounces of Tahiti Trader Island Style Noni or the Original Noni Juice twice per day.  

2. Vitamin D works to fuel your immune system (and practically every other metabolic system in the body) and power it with the juice it needs to be powerful and agile at the same time. Researchers have discovered that vitamin D is involved in the biochemical cellular machinery of ALL cells and tissues in your body. Vitamin D is crucial for good health… I recommend (for adults) taking 5,000 to 10,000 units of Vitamin D3 per day, ideally ½ in the morning and the other ½ in the evening. Children 50% of the adult recommendation.

Top 7 Back To School Health Tips!

Top 7 Back To School Health Tips!

1. Start the day off right.

Eating breakfast as a family is a perfect time to bond and spend quality time together while also preparing a healthy breakfast for the kids. Eggs with whole grain toast, fruit and yogurt, or whole grain unsweetened cereal with milk and berries are several great choices. It is suggested that kids begin their day with a meal consisting of protein and fiber, a winning combination of nutrients that will help them feel satisfied until lunch.

Noni Juice should be added to the daily diet at Breakfast.  It is a great way to start your day on track, give you natural energy and give your student the immune system boost they need! 

Since ancient times Noni juice has been valued for its effectiveness in fighting infections and other ailments attributing to the presence of valuable Polysaccharides. These helpful components stimulate the activity of white blood cells which play an important role in exerting such protective effect.

2. Get bedtimes on track, and tidy up the sleep patterns.

In the summer, when it’s light after 10 p.m., it’s easy for bedtimes to slip. But with early school wake-up calls coming, it’s key for children and teens to get to bed so they get enough quality sleep. Pediatricians recommend that children age 6 to 12 get 9 to 12 hours of sleep a night, and that teens get 8 to 10 hours a night.

Here are some tips to help children and teens get the sleep they need when they return to school.

  • Power off the devices. “Good sleep hygiene means all devices should be turned off an hour before bedtime,” says Andrea Hoopes, MD, a Kaiser Permanente Washington pediatrician. “This gives their brains time to unplug from the stimulation and the light from phones and computers.” Reading a book or magazine — the old-school-kind — can help kids relax right before bedtime.
  • Consider darkening shades. The clock says it’s bedtime, but it’s still light out. That can interfere with a child’s sleep. Darkening shades can block out distracting light and help your child drift off more easily.
  • Ease off caffeine. Your child or teen should stop drinking anything with caffeine, including sodas and energy drinks, after noon. That way, by bedtime, the stimulant will be out of their system.

Noni, when taken daily, helps improve your sleep so you get a more restful sleep and improves your moods.

3. Nix the added sugar.

The American Heart Association announced that they are suggesting that children and teens ages 2-18 limit added sugar to no more than 6 teaspoons (25 grams) per day. These new guidelines aim to help improve children’s overall diet. Kids who eat foods high in added sugars tend to eat fewer healthy foods that are good for their heart. Added sugar provides no nutritional benefits and is found in a wide range of food from cookies, ketchup, salad dressings, sugar sweetened cereals (even some whole grain ones!), smoothies, to sweetened yogurts. The major culprit of added sugar, however, is soda and sugary drinks including iced tea and fruit punch so it is suggested to limit them from your kids’ diets. The guidelines also suggest that children and teens consume no more than 8 ounces of sugary drinks a week. Sugary drinks, often called “liquid calories,” provide no health benefits.

 Noni Juice helps to curb sugar and junk food cravings when taken on a daily basis!

4. Pack a healthy snack.

If you are packing snacks for your kids, here is a perfect opportunity to include at least one fruit and veggie. Smart snacks include fresh fruit (apple, pear, and bananas), Greek yogurt, baby carrots with hummus, roasted edamame, and of course a bottle of water. Nuts or nut butter squeeze packs are also great choices if a school allows nuts; if not, they are a great go-to snack when kids get home.

 

5. Keep portions healthy (no measuring cup required!)

Regardless of what you feed your kids, serving healthy portion sizes is really important. You can use the plate method with kids (as long as the plate isn’t oversized!): at dinner, for example, fill half the plate with veggies and a quarter with protein (think fish, chicken, turkey or other lean meats) and the other quarter with a healthy starch (brown rice, sweet potato). To avoid overeating, limit eating in front of the TV and pre-portion snacks into 100 calorie portions.

 

6. Skip the white food (unless it’s cauliflower or white beans).

White bread including bagels, white rice, and white pasta are refined grains and are easy to overeat. Because they contain virtually no fiber, we don’t feel satisfied after eating them. While many kids choose them by default, introducing kids to healthier alternatives including quinoa, whole grain pasta, and brown rice helps them get into the habit of enjoying these grains. No need for kids to cut out starch entirely. Choosing the healthier ones is a far better alternative.


7. Get moving!

Incorporating sports and exercise into your children’s daily routine is a great way to keep them healthy while also keeping their weight in check. If possible, enroll kids in after school activities where possible, enjoy a walk or bike ride with your kids whenever possible, and encourage them to move. If parents engage in physical activity, their kids will follow along.


Hope your school year gets off to a great start!
