Anti-inflammatory herbs and vitamins for immune imbalance

Polypodium and Vitamin D Regulate Th1 Autoimmunity

Th1 Balance is a formula which combines the South American herb polypodium, a potent natural inhibitor of Th1 cytokines, with vitamin D, to regulate the drive of Th1 cell-mediated immunity. Vitamin D is essential to regulate over 1000 genes affecting many areas of health, including immune regulation, and is strongly implicated with increased risk of Th1 dominant autoimmunity.

Perilla Seed Extract Turns Down the Volume on Th2

The high strength extract from Perilla seed is shown to prevent excessive Th2 polarisation, by inhibiting all the major Th2 cytokines (IL-4, IL-5, IL-10, IL-13). In combination with mandarin peel, which acts as a potent anti-inflammatory antioxidant, this formula is ideal for helping to restore balance to Th2 dominant autoimmune diseases.

Managing the Inflammatory Fire of Immune Imbalance

As well as reducing excessive Th1 or Th2 activity, the symptoms of autoimmunity must also be managed by reducing inflammation and tissue destruction. Inflammation is a painful and damaging feature of all autoimmune pathology, as depicted in Figure 1. The intensity of redness in this diagram increases as Th1 and Th2 move away from their healthy 9 o’clock and 3 o’clock positions, towards midnight, indicating physiological levels of inflammation increase as T-helper cell activity increases to unhealthy levels.

Whether a patient presents with a Th1 or a Th2 mediated autoimmune condition, Natural Medicines will help manage pain and inflammation in you, whilst modulating Th1 and Th2 responses.
