Immune Support

Posted on Thursday, February 1, 2007

9 out of 10 times Immune damaged animals become critically ill and die when still a kitten, not long after the vaccines!! Adults become chronically diseased and sick. Why? There is an obvious pattern that responsible and caring Veterinarians and animal health practitioner see and this immune related disease happens from frequent, multiple vaccinations and/or long- term steroid drug administration. Long- term antibiotics, antihistamines, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, tranquilizers, and carcinogenic flea and heartworm pesticide preventative drug therapy. It is a known fact there is a high correlation of producing clinical Feline Leukaemia with the Feline Leukaemia vaccine. There is also a high correlation of tumour formation at sites of repeated other vaccine inoculations.

If your animal is suffering with a acute or chronic immune depletion and even further damage has progressed with acquiring a life threatening disease, then this natural Supa Immuno formula is a good start to assisting and fighting the disease.

Some of the proven Immune builders to help to fight virus and cancer have been brought together in the one formula. Below are some of the written studies done with some of the treatments in this product.

Clinical studies on the natural derivative which is part of the Aloe Vera plant called Acemannan that at the Department of Veterinary Microbiology and Parasitology, College of Veterinary Medicine at Texas A&M University, several researchers have reported improving the quality of life and the survival rate among cats persistently infected with the feline leukaemia virus (7). They administered acemannan, an aloe vera derivative, to persistently infected cats for six weeks.
Acemannan is known to induce interferon activity; and acemannan is known to act as an antiviral agent for several viruses.

Acemannan purified from Aloe Vera induces phenotypic and functional maturation of immature dendritic cells.

Acemannan, a major carbohydrate fraction of Aloe vera gel, has been known to have antiviral and antitumoral activities in vivo through activation of immune responses. The present study was set out to define the immunomodulatory activity of acemannan on dendritic cells (DCs), which are the most important accessory cells for the initiation of primary immune responses. Immature DCs were generated from mouse bone marrow (BM) cells by culturing in a medium supplemented with GM-CSF and IL-4, and then stimulated with acemannan, sulphated acemannan, and LPS, respectively. The resultant DCs were examined for phenotypic and functional properties. Phenotypic analysis for the expression of class II MHC molecules and major co-stimulatory molecules such as B7-1, B7-2, CD40 and CD54 confirmed that acemannan could induce maturation of immature DCs. Functional maturation of immature DCs was supported by increased allogeneic mixed lymphocyte reaction
(MLR) and IL-12 production. The differentiation-inducing activity of acemannan was almost completely abolished by chemical sulfation. Based on these results, we propose that the adjuvant activity of acemannan is at least in part due to its capacity to promote differentiation of immature DCs.

1989 Researchers from Okinawa, Japan reported in the Japanese Journal of Cancer Research, that
Aloe contained at least three anti-tumour agents, emodin, mannose, and lectin. The researchers concluded
that Aloe controls pulmonary carcinogenesis and is effective in the treatment of leukaemia and sarcoma and
that it would prevent the development of tumours.

1991 Ian R. Tizard, PhD, of Texas A&M, reported in the Journal of Molecular Biotherapy, that
Aloe mannose was highly effective against feline leukaemia and soft tissue cancer in cats and dogs.

1992 Dr. James Duke, United States Department of Agriculture, approved the use of Aloe mannose as
a treatment of soft tissue cancer in animals and feline leukaemia.


Aloe has been shown to be prophylactic, and possibly therapeutic to combal 60 induced leukopenia. Aloe may also have an anti-sarcoma effect. A long chained mannan polymer known as Acemannan has been found to have immunostimulatory properties and is used parenterally in veterinary medicine for feline leukaemia and fibrosarcoma.

It is thought that Acemannan stimulates macrophages to release Tumour Necrosis Factor, interleukin
and interferon. The consumption of 1/2 to 1 litre of aloe vera juice appears to be the necessary therapeutic
dosage for humans.

Sweet Chinese Wormood

Studies on an ancient Chinese remedy for malaria are now underway to see if this same herb will be as
effective for cancer. Seattle scientists have discovered that a compound, called artemisinin, extracted from
the wormwood plant killed virtually all human breast cancer cells exposed to it in the test tube within
16 hours, while leaving healthy cells alone.

Part of these experiments included a dog with a bone cancer known as osteosarcoma. Before treatment
the dog could not walk across the room. Within five days of receiving treatment, x-rays showed the animals
tumour had disappeared and the dog enjoyed a full recovery. Henry Lai, a bioengineering researcher at the
University of Washington, said that he believes the dog is still alive two years later.

How it Works

It seems that the malaria parasite and cancer cells have one thing in common. They both like iron. When
artemisinin comes into contact with iron, a chemical reaction occurs causing free radicals. In the case of
malaria, these free radicals attack and bind with the membranes of the single-celled parasite, effectively
killing it.

In the case of breast cancer, these cells have five to 15 times more transferrin receptors (cellular pathways that allow iron to enter) on their surface than normal breast cells. That's because cells need iron to replicate DNA when they divide. Since cancer is characterized by out-of-control cell division, cancer cells have much higher iron concentrations than normal cells -- about three times more, according to Ralph Moss, author of "Healing Choices."
