Many people spend a great deal of time and money supplementing their diet with vitamins, minerals and other nutrients. If you’re not optimizing your diet by eating the right foods in the right amounts for what you want to achieve all the supplementation in the world will not help you achieve your goals. The underlying problem of sub-optimal nutrition still exists. Health and disease are determined at the cellular level in the millions of cells that compose our body and its organs. Vitamins and other essential nutrients are needed for thousands of biochemical reactions in each cell. Chronic deficiency of these vitamins and other essential nutrients can lead to a malfunction of these cells and eventually contribute to a number of diseases. A proper, balanced diet in addition to optimum dietary supplementation of vitamins and other essential nutrients is the key to prevention and effective relief of chronic health conditions.
Healing can often occur naturally if the body receives the proper nutritional support. Supplementation with certain natural compounds from plant sources is a convenient way to balance and support the beneficial processes within our own bodies. Such is the case with VRL Defense.
The Herpes Simplex Virus, Type 1 and 2
Herpes Simplex infection occurs after exposure to the virus through a break in the skin or through mucus membranes. There is strong evidence that the virus may be transmitted even when symptoms are not present. The virus spreads to nerve cells within the body and then to other mucosal skin surfaces. The Herpes Simplex Virus (HSV) can cause blister-like sores on the skin. There are two types of HSV: Type 1, in and around the mouth and Type 2, in the genital area. Some people seldom experience symptoms, while for others it can be an embarrassing, painful infection, which returns with annoying regularity. The virus remains dormant in the body after an active infection and recurrences of the symptoms can take place at a later time. Overexposure to sunlight, fever, stress, or certain foods and drugs may precipitate recurrences.
What is a virus and how does it affect homeostasis of the body?
A virus is an infectious agent that has either viral RNA or DNA as its genetic material. Viruses ‘hijack’ the body’s cellular machinery in order to live, grow and replicate. As viruses replicate, the cells in which they are growing are destroyed releasing millions of new virus particles and an array of cellular toxins. The damaging effects of viral replication continue to disrupt homeostasis in the body, often for long periods of time.
VRL Defense contains a unique blend of natural ingredients and synergistic antioxidants which have numerous, documented biological activities. Together, this unique chemistry functions to promote homeostasis in the body. The key to health: achieving cellular homeostasis!
Homeostasis is a state of stability and balance in the body’s internal environment. This balance is achieved by cellular systems, i.e. the immune system, nervous system, endocrine system, etc. and chemical mechanisms, i.e. inflammatory cascade, immune reaction, hormonal release, etc. that act in synchrony to control and regulate the body’s state of being. When homeostasis is disrupted by environmental or physical stresses, the proper functioning of the body’s systems may be compromised. The immune system is instrumental in maintaining homeostasis in the body. It includes the cellular and molecular components of the body that function as a defense against invasion of the body by foreign organisms and infectious agents. Some of the major components of this intricate system include white blood cells, antibodies and chemical factors such as interleukins and leukotrienes. VRL Defense is a unique and proprietary combination of selected ingredients that work together with your immune system to assist the body to achieve cellular homeostasis.
