Vaily Immune Support is a dietary supplement that falls under the Nutraceutical category. As it is not classified as a drug, the Food Drug Administration (FDA) does not require clinical or scientific studies to support its effectiveness. However, the ingredients that make up the Vaily Immune supported by established scientific protocols.
For years, Glutathione, Vitamin C, Zinc, and Selenium have demonstrated their efficacy in improving health, in the prevention of many diseases related to cells and oxidative stress and, together with specific drugs, even assisting in the fight of more complex pathologies such as cancer, skin diseases, cardiovascular diseases, etc. Hundreds of universities, study centers, and laboratories around the world, supervised by the FDA and EMEA (European Medicines Evaluation Agency) as well as many other international regulators, have carried out clinical studies on these ingredients with thousands and thousands of human tests.
Here is a brief explanation of each of these ingredients, recommended in the nutrition industry, and he role they play in boosting our health.
The human body is a marvelous machine, complete with an onboard detoxifying system that works ceaselessly to protect the body by cleansing the billions of cells exposed to myriad sources of toxicity in our increasingly harmful environment
— everything from alcohol, smoke, and processed foods to the radiation, chemicals, and other dangerous substances in the air that you never even see coming.
In its continuous automatic cleanse cycle, the body works hard to rid itself of disease-causing viruses, parasites, fungi, bacteria, abnormal cells, and unstable, damage-inducing molecules called free radicals that can mutate cells and potentially cause cancer. A key element in this cleansing process is Glutathione, a fast-acting, powerful combination of three amino acids present in many cells that naturally detoxifies and defends the body.
• A protective shield, intercepting and neutralizing invasive free radicals and other toxic substances faster than they can damage cells
• A powerful antioxidant, providing protection from harmful free radicals as it counteracts oxidative stress
• An effective detoxifier, eliminating harmful toxins from the body
• A robust guardian, supporting overall immune system function and health
Unfortunately, over time, age, stress, diet, and unhealthy habits reduce Glutathione levels, leaving the body vulnerable to cellular attack. But now there’s a defense. The pharmaceutical industry has worked for years to discover how to replicate naturally occurring Glutathione—and now it has. Today, many leading healthcare professionals and nutritionists recommend Glutathione supplementation as one of the best ways to support the immune system and detoxify the body. Studies from the National Library of Medicine concur, indicating the importance of maintaining sufficient glutathione levels.* In fact, some studies indicate that low levels of Glutathione are linked with various diseases.
Vitamin C, also known as L-ascorbic acid, is a water-soluble vitamin that is naturally present in some foods, added to others, and available as a dietary supplement. Humans, unlike most animals, are unable to synthesize vitamin C endogenously, so it is an essential dietary component
Vitamin C is required for the biosynthesis of collagen, L-carnitine, and certain neurotransmitters; vitamin C is also involved in protein metabolism. Vitamin C is also an important physiological antioxidant and has been shown to regenerate other antioxidants within the body, including alpha-tocopherol (vitamin E). Ongoing research is examining whether vitamin C, by limiting the damaging effects of free radicals through its antioxidant activity, might help prevent or delay the development of certain cancers, cardiovascular disease, and other diseases in which oxidative stress plays a causal role. In addition to its biosynthetic and antioxidant functions, vitamin C plays an important role in immune function and improves the absorption of nonheme iron, the form of iron present in plant-based foods. Insufficient vitamin C intake causes scurvy, which is characterized by fatigue or lassitude, widespread connective tissue weakness, and capillary fragility. Due to its function as an antioxidant and its role in immune function, vitamin C has been promoted as a means to help prevent and/or treat numerous health conditions. Cancer (including prevention and treatment), cardiovascular disease, age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and cataracts, and the common cold are diseases and disorders in which vitamin C might play an important role.
Zinc is a nutrient that people need to stay healthy. Zinc is found in cells throughout the body. It helps the immune system fight off invading bacteria and viruses. The body also needs zinc to make proteins and DNA, the genetic material in all cells. During pregnancy, infancy, and childhood, the body needs zinc to grow and develop properly. Zinc also helps wounds heal and is important for proper senses of taste and smell.
Scientists are studying zinc to learn about its effects on the immune system (the body’s defense system against bacteria, viruses, and other foreign invaders). The body’s immune system needs zinc to do its job. Older people and children in developing countries who have low levels of zinc might have a higher risk of getting pneumonia and other infections. Zinc also helps the skin stay healthy. Some people who have skin ulcers might benefit from zinc dietary supplements, but only if they have low levels of zinc. Research suggests that zinc might help slow AMD (an eye disease that gradually causes vision loss) progression. People who have or are developing the disease might want to talk with their doctor about taking dietary supplements.
Selenium is a nutrient that the body needs to stay healthy. Selenium is important for reproduction, thyroid gland function, DNA production, and protecting the body from damage caused by free radicals and from infection.
Selenium is a particularly important mineral because it supports the function of several systems. These include the endocrine, immune, and cardiovascular systems. The thyroid, part of the endocrine system, is the organ with the highest concentration of selenium per weight of organ tissue.
Selenium and zinc
Essential micronutrients that have important roles in reducing oxidative stress and protecting DNA from the attack of reactive oxygen species. Selenium is an essential trace element that possesses several functions in many cellular processes for cancer prevention. Meanwhile, zinc may have protective effects on tumor initiation and progression, and it is an essential cofactor of several mammalian proteins. Results show that both selenium and zinc provide an effective progression of DNA repair system; thus, cancer development that originated from DNA damage is decreased. Results mostly focus on the separate effects of these two elements on different cell types, tissues, and organs, and their combined effects are largely unknown. This review aimed to emphasize the joint role of selenium and zinc specifically on DNA repair for cancer prevention
