About Orthomol Immun Pro
Orthomol Immun Pro is a food for special medical purposes including the dietary management of disturbances of the flora in the gut (such as irritable bowel syndrome) and the gut's immune system (for instance, in the case of allergies or after chemotherapy or radiation therapy or after taking antibiotics).
Why Do I Need Orthomol Immun Pro?
Our lives seem to get more and more frantic and stressful by the day. In the course of our busy lifestyles, our immune system is constantly under attack from internal and external stresses. The immune system is a network of organs and cells weighing around 2kg and it is considered 'the guardian' of our health, making it the most important barrier against these afore-mentioned stresses.
Our immune systems are active from birth, but not fully developed at this stage. As we get older, the immune system reaches its full potential. It functions 24 hours a day, constantly fighting off threats, yet we are practically unaware of the work it does. At any time, it is prepared to attack harmful foreign bodies such as bacteria or viruses, and means that we can quite safely eat raw, unwashed fruit or vegetables, and enter a room full of strangers.
The immune system is not one organ acting alone: it comprises the bone marrow, spleen, tonsils, skin, thymus, lymph system, white blood cells, endochrine system (hormones) and antibodies. It is hardly surprising with all these vital components, that the immune system has a surface area of some 400 m2.
Even though our immune system is always on stand-by, there are certain situations when it must be on red alert - such as in the presence of acute or chronic infections; asthma attacks; allergies; during IBS attacks and also following chemotherapy or radiation therapy.
To keep your immune system in tip-top condition, it is strongly recommended that you take plenty of outdoors, physical activity, eat a healthy, balanced diet, and get enough restful sleep to feel refreshed.
