As we make our way through the holiday season, I am reminded of warm holiday memories, spending time with family, friends, and those I don’t get to see too often. Winter is usually a time to journey inward and reflect on the things we are grateful for, as well as with the achievements we have made over the year.
However, in this time of celebrating life and love, many of us tend to get a little carried away with the tempting treats that seem to be everywhere we go. A common, and unfortunate, downside to cheating on your healthy diet is a weakened immune system. Afterall, you are what you eat.
Sugars and processed carbohydrates are an energy drain to your body, making you more vulnerable to whatever strain of flu or cold is going around. Sweet treats, champagne, cocktails, and not to mention the stress and chaos of the holidays, can all affect the way our body’s respond to infection, stress, sleep, and inflammation.
But don’t worry, Sabre Sciences always has your back. That’s why we developed MariPro. MariPro is a proprietary Fucoidan blend of herbal compounds and vitamins that provide support in 3 major areas:
• Immune Support
Let’s take a closer look at MariPro’s Primary components: Fucoidans, Natto Kinase, MSM, Beta-Glucans, Turmeric, and Sea Buckthorn.
It’s also important to note that this specific combination of Fucoidan Laminaria & Nattokinase are a known powerhouse of anti-inflammatory & immune regulating support, used by many doctors as post infection recovery.
Fucoidans (Laminaria Japonica Extract):
Fucoidans are complex polysaccharides that are primarily sourced from brown seaweed and exhibit a ran wide range of health benefits. Firstly, these compounds have demonstrated potent anti-inflammatory properties, contributing to reduced inflammation in the body and potentially alleviating conditions associated with chronic inflammation.
Secondly, fucoidans exhibit anticoagulant and antithrombotic effects, supporting cardiovascular health by helping to prevent blood clot formation and improving blood circulation.
Thirdly, evidence suggests that fucoidans possess immunomodulatory properties, enhancing the body's immune response, and potentially aiding in the defense against infections and illnesses. The fucoidans found in MariPro come from the extract of laminaria japonica, a type of brown seaweed native to the island of Japan.
Natto kinase is an enzyme derived from fermented soybeans, particularly prevalent in the Japanese dish natto. Known for its fibrinolytic properties, natto kinase contributes to cardiovascular health by promoting blood circulation and preventing blood clots. This enzyme has gained attention for its potential to support cardiovascular function, reducing the risk of thrombosis and enhancing overall heart health.
Natto kinase may also aid in maintaining healthy blood pressure levels by facilitating optimal blood flow. Moreover, some studies suggest that natto kinase possesses anti-inflammatory properties, potentially benefiting joint health and alleviating symptoms associated with inflammation. The Natto kinase in MariPro is Optimally formulated at 90 mg with 12,000 FU (fibrinolytic units) per capsule.
Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM), a naturally occurring sulfur compound found in certain foods and available as a dietary supplement, offers several unique benefits to the human body. MSM is known for its potential to support joint health by contributing to the formation of collagen, a key component of connective tissues. This can help alleviate symptoms of conditions like osteoarthritis.
MSM also exhibits anti-inflammatory properties, which may assist in reducing inflammation and promoting recovery after exercise or injury. Additionally, it's content of sulfur is a vital component in producing glutathione, a potent antioxidant that plays a crucial role in neutralizing free radicals, supporting detoxification processes, and enhancing overall immune function.
Beta-glucans are a type of soluble fiber found in various sources like oats, barley, and certain mushrooms, that offer several notable health benefits. Beta-glucans play a crucial role in supporting heart health by helping to lower cholesterol levels with the ability to bind to cholesterol and remove it from the body contributes to improved cardiovascular well-being.
Additionally, beta-glucans exhibit immunomodulatory effects, enhancing the body's immune response. This can lead to improved defense against infection and an overall bolstered immune system. These compounds have also been associated with better blood sugar control, particularly beneficial for individuals managing diabetes or aiming to prevent insulin resistance. In Sabre Sciences MariPro we have included Beta-Glucans 1,3 1,6, found in yeast or fungi, which are often considered most effective for immunomodulatory support and immune system function.
Turmeric is a spice derived from the Curcuma Longa plant, and is widely recognized for its numerous health benefits. It's active compound, curcumin, exhibits potent anti-inflammatory properties that may help alleviate conditions such as arthritis and other inflammatory disorders. This powerful antioxidant is capable of neutralizing free radicals that contribute to aging and various chronic diseases.
Tumeric's antioxidant activity aslo has potential benefits for skin health, along with overall immune function. It has shown promise in supporting digestive health as well by stimulating bile production, and promoting a healthy gut environment.
Sea Buckthorn is derived from the berries of the Hippophae plant, and is renowned for its diverse health benefits. It is a rich source of antioxidants, particularly vitamins C and E, and helps combat oxidative stress and protect the body from free radical damage, thus promoting overall skin health and reducing signs of aging.
Sea buckthorn is unique in its high content of omega-7 fatty acids. These contribute to the maintenance of healthy mucous membranes, aiding in digestive and skin health. Additionally, sea buckthorn possesses anti-inflammatory properties that may assist in reducing inflammation in the body, also potentially benefiting conditions such as arthritis.
In addition to all of these powerful compounds, the MariPro formula offers a complex blend of essential vitamins, including B2, B3, B12 (Methyl cobalamin), D3, K2, Zinc, and Magnesium Ascorbate. All these vitamins and herbal compounds make MariPro very effective in helping you recover from anything the holidays throw at you!
