Veggies, Curcumin & Immunity

posted by on December 12th, 2013

Scientists at the Babraham Institute in Cambridge, working together with the Medical Research Council’s National Institute for Medical Research, have recently carried out a new study that looked at how green vegetables influence immunity. Published in the online Journal Cell (a Cell Press publication), the research has identified a definite connection between specific chemicals found in green vegetables (such as broccoli and Chinese cabbage) and the good functioning of the immune system. It appears that tiny chemical compounds found in common green vegetables interact with immune cells of the gut, known as intraepithelial lymphocytes (IELs), by effectively protecting them and boosting their numbers.
Curcumin, Broccoli and Selenium can do the same things for your patients that need the extra support and immune enhancement.
