We Are Living In A Microbial World

You know the song Material World? Instead of Material World, it should be Microbial World! We are living in a microbial world, and I am a microbial girl! And so are you! Sing it with me! The immune system is constantly encountering microorganisms and defending against them.

We are all born with an innate immune response that is our first line of defense against viruses and other pathogens. The innate immune response is limited; it controls some infections but not all of them. We also have an adaptive immune response in which B-cells and T-cells react to specific viruses. B-cells produce antibodies to help control microbial invaders, and if your body doesn’t have the antibodies, a new virus can rapidly spread.

Is your immune system ready? Do you have the right blend of nutrients to feed your body for the strongest immune system possible? The right nutrients can help you get over a virus faster, too. Conversely, nutritional deficiencies may increase the severity of the virus and also impair recovery from it.

Zinc directly supports several types of immune cells. Zinc has been shown to be important in an antiviral defense, especially in the respiratory tract. Zinc can reduce the viral load following an influenza infection and may reduce the burden that RSV has on the lungs. Zinc has also been shown to reduce viral pneumonia symptoms.

Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that provides a multitude of protective effects.

Vitamin A deficiency can also increase viral severity. Vitamin A is important to both the innate and adaptive immunity and it helps to minimize the risk of opportunistic secondary infections. This particular vitamin can be important in respiratory infections as well. It helps to support tissue repair in the respiratory tract and can minimize damaging inflammation.

Pantothenic acid is an important anti-inflammatory B vitamin, as is B12 which is used in the treatment of persistent viral symptoms. Vitamin B12 plays a role in balancing immune responses to enable the body to better fight viral infections.

Each of these nutrients is powerful on its on, but my private label Opti Early Vira Relief includes all of them plus botanical extracts that provide support for immune challenges. The immune system has a dynamic nature, so you will benefit from a supplement that addressed all the factors of immune health. Vitamin deficiencies can compromise the immune system, but consuming immune-enhancing nutrients and botanicals can support and strengthen the body’s immune response to keep your body at peak performance.

For immediate immune support, we recommend 1-2 capsules per hour or as recommended by your health care professional. Do not exceed 2 capsules every hour. For immune maintenance, we suggest 2 capsules per day or as recommended by your health care professional.

This summer, prime your immune system and get it tuned up in time for the fall and winter season. We are living in a microbial world, but Opti Early Vira Relief can definitely keep you at your peak health.

08-09-21 Deep Dive PREMIUM – with Jamie Walden

Meet Jamie Walden, of Omega Dynamics. Imbued with matchless passion for all things “adventurous” and “fun”, Jamie’s teen years were filled with significant tumult (injuries, arrests, and choices of near life-long consequence). However, amid the rebellion and ruckus, Jamie continually endeavored to one day earn the title, “U.S. Marine”. After being nominated to attend the National Youth Leadership Forum on Defense, Intelligence, and Diplomacy in Washington, D.C., where he subsequently secured a nomination to the US Naval Academy, Jamie made the determination to simply enlist in the Marine Corps Infantry and achieve his childhood dream.

After leaving the Marines Corps, Jamie obtained a double major B.S. in Law Enforcement and History. Pursuing a career in Federal Law Enforcement, Jamie was selected as an Intern for the United States Marshals Service, and subsequent recruitment to a “Three Letter” agency. It was then, when Jamie received “the call”, that the Lord began testing and affirming the genuineness of his faith.

After again returning to Iraq in 2014 to serve the Christians suffering under the savage campaign of ISIS, Jamie and his wife Virginia were compelled to surrender their paradigm and follow the Lord into full-time ministry.

“The Mission of Omega Dynamics is this: to teach, train and equip “Those with ears to hear” to stand anew in their rightful place as more than conquerors in a kingdom that cannot be shaken…this generation is literally, eternally dying for us to”
