Kpax Protein Blend in a Satisfying Strawberry Flavor
K-PAX Strawberry Blast is a micronutrient supplement shown to significantly improve CD4 cell counts in those who are immuno-compromised. KPAX can also be used in those who are not immunocompromised and would like additional immune support. K-PAX Strawberry Blast also includes Oryzatein (a hypoallergenic brown rice protein) for those who prefer liquid nutrition and want to increase their daily protein intake.
A Comprehensive Formula for Immune Health
The human immune system is a complex network involving numerous cells and mechanisms designed to protect the body from pathogens and infections. The roles of diet, lifestyle, stress reduction and dietary supplementation have all been studied for their ability to support the immune system. Supplementation with antioxidants and micronutrients also provides fuel for the cells.
Antioxidants and Immune System Health
Antioxidants (substances that protect cells form oxidative damage by neutralizing free radicals) play an important part in immune health. Studies have found some patients with poor immune health are often times deficient in antioxidants such as vitamin C, vitamin E, and vitamin A, along with others including acetyl-L-carnitine and glutathione. Oral glutathione is not well absorbed in the body. N-acetyl-L-cysteine (NAC) is used to recharge glutathione supplies. Lipoic acid is also capable of recharging other antioxidants like ascorbate (vitamin c), vitamin e, and glutathione. During times of stress, the body uses some antioxidants, such as vitamin c, more quickly, dietary supplementation may be beneficial in times of stress to support the bodies increased needs and provide extra fuel for the body.
The Role of Micronutrients in Immune System Health
It is well known that micronutrients play an important part in immune health. When the immune system is stressed or weak, micronutrients have been shown to be beneficial in recovery times and cell health, taken prophalactily micronutrients can help strengthen the immune system, lessening the chance for illness. While the mechanisms of each micronutrient are complex and some not widely understood, micronutrient therapy has been widely used in main stream medicine and continues to be studied. Deficiencies in some micronutrients have also been associated with poor immune health.
Kpax Strawberry Blast includes an abundant supply of micronutrient antioxidants (includnig Acetyl-L-Carnitine, Alpha Lipoic Acid and N-Acetyl-Cysteine) for optimal immune system health and support.
•Acetyl-L-Carnitine for Cellular Energy
The primary ingredient that increases cellular energy production at the mitochondrial level is Acetyl-L-Carnitine. It increases the flow of free fatty acids into the mitochondria, directly boosting energy production. When certain micronutrients are combined with a therapeutic amount of Acetyl-L-Carnitine, the mixture can be used as a high octane fuel supplement to enhance mitochondrial energy production and produce clinically significant results.
•Alpha Lipoic Acid for Immune Health
Believed to be one of the cell's most versatile and important antioxidants, Alpha Lipoic Acid works to help detoxify free radicals that are generated when cells are under stress. Alpha Lipoic Acid, when combined with other vitamins and minerals, works maximally to support immune, hepatic, and nervous systems, and also recharges Vitamin E, Vitamin C and Glutathione other key antioxidants in the body.
•N-Acetyl-Cysteine for Immune Support
Studies performed at Stanford University have shown that individuals with severely compromised immune systems are deficient in NAC and that when this potent antioxidant is supplemented, there is a significant stabilization of overall health.
Kpax Strawberry Blast, A Natural Supplement Designed to Help Maintain Homeostasis
Foundational Micronutrients with the addition of an "optimized backbone" of antioxidant vitamins and minerals, the health and energy output of mitochondria are maximally supported and enhanced. When mitochondria are under stress, it is important to maintain high levels of micronutrients to maintain homeostasis.
