adjuvantsStrengthening immunity is undoubtedly one of the most discussed topics today. Many worry about how to prepare for the season of flu and colds. The most common advice is to take adjuvants. Almost always find people who speak with the pathos of a “remarkable tool, which have benefited and who has helped the family, neighbors, relatives … A doctor once asked the question – why do you take? Adjuvants are already an integral part of many lives in the autumn. Child falls into despondency does not want to go to school, we give it drops, it goes through the whole course and everything is fine. Must send a draft, but we often catch cold. On the advice of colleagues drink some magic medicine that helps a lot. At the same time experts constantly warn that the immune system is too complex to “tightening” of such funds. To achieve a healthy balance must be equalized two forces: anti-inflammatory (induce inflammation, kills harmful microbes entrants or viruses) and inflammatory (control processes as the action). Violations of this balance leads to serious consequences, including can lead to infectious and toxic-shock. Do not take these adjuvants whose relatives suffering from autoimmune diseases (rheumatoid arthritis, insulin dependent diabetes mellitus, etc.)..
Most adjuvants, which are sold in pharmacies without a prescription not seriously affect the immune system. In a cold or flu they can help (and not always!), but to drink preventive specialists are strongly opposed. Widespread, but the misconception is that we need to increase immunity to common colds and inflammatory diseases, passing in chronic, difficult to heal wounds, etc. Only a doctor can determine the real need for adjuvants. According to statistics, only 5% of people actually have problems with the immune system, which need serious treatment.
