Viral and bacterial infectious diseases are now recognized as major risk factors for Coronary Heart Disease (CHD). As the first line of defense against infections, weakened and depleted NK cells may open the door to the development of CHD.
A true modulator of immune function — an Immunomodulator — is an agent that functions to strengthen or restore immune activity as needed to optimize health. Optimizing immune function via internal regulatory signals and control systems is termed Immunorestoration.
When the immune system is weakened or overactive due to aging, lifestyle, environmental toxins, or other causes of deficiency, we become more susceptible to viral and bacterial infections like Influenza and the common cold, as well as Heart Disease and Cancer. Immunorestoration is an approach to remedy the effects of Aging and Immunosenescence, and revitalize the body’s natural immune response and anti-cancer immunity.
In clinical studies of these and other conditions, it has been shown that certain RBAC Immunomodulator Compounds can up-regulate, and so improve a weakened immune response. As well, in conditions where the immune system is overactive and harming the body, RBAC Immunomodulator Compounds have been shown to down-regulate the immune system. In the specific case of Autoimmune Diseases, the immune system is overactive, and preliminary evidence indicates that RBAC has a restorative, down-regulating effect.
