NICS Product – Natural Immune Control System – NICS
It belongs to the group of fat-soluble vitamins. Vitamin D3 is formed in the skin from dehydrocholesterol produced by the liver when exposed to sunlight. Vitamin D has one characteristic: its formation requires sunlight reaching our skin, one of the ultraviolet rays in particular has the ability to convert intradermal steroids into vitamin D. The kidneys and liver complete the positive effects of ultraviolet radiation and give vitamin D the opportunity to exert its activity and transform into its active form. Many people consider vitamin D to be a hormone rather than a real vitamin. One of the substances produced by the endocrine glands.
Its main natural sources are:
Fish liver oil, sardines, herring, tuna, salmon, milk and dairy products.
Why is vitamin D important?
Vitamin D contributes to the maintenance of normal calcium levels in the blood, the normal absorption and utilization of calcium and phosphorus. (Phosphorus is involved in the maintenance of normal bones.) It plays a role in cell division, contributes to the maintenance of healthy muscle function, bones, normal teeth, and the normal functioning of the immune system.
The body has more calcium than any other mineral. Calcium and phosphorus together are responsible for healthy bones and teeth. The main mass of calcium in the human body is found in bones and teeth. 20% of the calcium content of adult human bones is absorbed and replenished annually. The body needs enough vitamin D to be absorbed. In addition, it plays an important role in regulating irritability and muscle function. In special circumstances, such as pregnancy, replenishment may be required.
Its main natural sources are:
Milk and dairy products, all types of cheese, sardines, salmon, walnuts, sunflower seeds, green vegetables.
Why is Calcium Important?
It contributes to muscle function, the normal functioning of digestive enzymes. It is involved in normal blood clotting processes, normal energy-producing metabolic processes, normal stimulus transmission. Calcium is needed to maintain normal bones and teeth. In addition, it plays a role in cell division processes and cell specialization.
Inulin and live flora / Probiotic and Prebiotic:
The living flora is made up of beneficial, living microorganisms that help maintain a healthy balance of the intestinal flora by surviving the acidic medium in the gastrointestinal tract. Our products contain several live flora and Inulin, which promotes their growth, in high germ counts.
A Probiotic also known as the living flora of Greek origin, meaning: for life. In today’s sense, RB Parker first used the term probiotic in 1974 as the organisms and substances responsible for microbial balance in the intestinal tract. Probiotics are characterized by their human origin, non-pathogens, resistance to gastric acid, bile, and digestive enzymes in saliva, pancreas, and intestinal fluids. They retain their resilience during the shelf life of the food and during technological processes. In addition, probiotics are able to adhere to mucosal cells, have an antimicrobial effect against potential pathogens, and reduce the adhesion of pathogenic microbes to the mucosal surface. Most probiotics are lactic acid bacteria and bifidobacteria.Most of the best-known strains of probiotic lactic acid bacteria are Lactobacillus, a smaller part belong to the genus Streptococcus.
Prebiotics are natural nutrients that are typically the exclusive nutrients in probiotics and therefore help them to multiply and become predominant. In the oral cavity and in the gastrointestinal tract, prebiotics are not broken down by digestive enzymes, so they can enter the colon undigested. Prebiotics are dietary fiber, but they are soluble in water, so they are also the most excellent dietary fiber. In addition to their dietary fiber function, their real benefit lies in the fact that they are the exclusive foods of probiotics. Because there is already little digestible food in the colon, i.e., there is a relative lack of food, the prebiotics consumed offer an opportunity for human-friendly intestinal bacteria to multiply.
In their natural state, they occur in many foods, such as Jerusalem artichokes, chicory roots, onions, garlic, leeks, artichokes, whole grains, wheat, bananas, flax, spinach, cabbage, chard, mustard, berries, legumes, and more.
One of the types of prebiotics is Inulins, actually a dietary fiber that reaches the colon undigested, increasing the proliferation of probiotics, their predominance.
Their role: digestion, balance of intestinal flora.
Our body is connected to the outside world through our largest intestinal system, about 7-9 meters long. Thus, it serves as a potential attack site for pathogens and toxic substances. There are normally about 200-400 bacterial strains in the gut. In fetal life, beneficial bacteria predominate in 95-98%. A healthy gut flora provides protection against a number of pathogens, ensures the integrity of the intestinal mucosa, and helps the body absorb the nutrients it needs. They produce many vitamins that are essential for the body. If the defense mechanisms of the digestive system are weakened, it can interfere with absorption processes, among other things.
Probiotics, in order to be able to affect their environment, are a prerequisite for the presence of a large number, which means at least 108 cfu of organisms per gram in the intestinal fluid.
What does cfu mean?
cfu: colony forming unit per milliliter, number of viable microorganisms (germ count). The amount of bacteria in the compositions is usually expressed in such units. However, Inulin is expressed in mg. An appropriate dose of a minimum of 109 cfu is accepted.
What is an effective live flora preparation?
– The growth of probiotics is promoted by prebiotics, so the product should contain Inulin or fructooligosaccharides.
– They are resistant to the effects of stomach acid, bile and digestive enzymes, so that beneficial bacteria can reach the colon alive, where they can multiply and stick. An essential criterion is that the bacteria retain their viability as they pass through the gastrointestinal tract.
– Good live flora preparations contain a minimum of 5-6 strains, as we want to replace the diverse multiculture of intestinal bacteria.
– They retain their resilience during the warranty period and during technological processes.
– Contains an adequate number of germs, a minimum of 10 recommended by experts8 or 10 9 colony forming units.
