Helps maintain a healthy immune system.
The immune system plays a role in all elements that enable the body’s proper and healthy function. It allows the body to defend itself against all manners of external attack such as microbes and inert particles like metal dust and wood dust.
Essential oils have little effect on what is known as ‘non-specific immunity’, that is white blood cells, the body’s first line of defence. However, it has been shown that some aromatic molecules can help control, balance, and stimulate the production of immunoglobulins, the precursors to antibodies, the body’s specific immune response to attacks.
There are two primary kinds of immunoglobulin associated with mucous membranes: IgA and IgM. These two classes of “gamma globulin” are synthesized by most monoterpene alcohols. The best of these alcohols are alpha-terpineol and terpinene-1.4-ol. Both are major constituents of Ravintsara oil as well as Tea tree oil. Thus, these two immunostimulant essential oils figure prominently in AROMAVITA 93‘s composition. Geraniol is another important terpene alcohol which benefits immune stimulation and constitutes 80% of Palmarosa oil, in this formula.
As previously outlined, controlling the body’s immune responses is a complex task. The difficulty stems from the link immunity shares with two other phenomena: infection and inflammation. The three processes form a triangle in which tight feedback loops are established. Thus, controlling one corner of the triangle, such as infection, can limit and cancel the development of an inflammatory edema as well as calm down the accompanying acute immune response.
At the heart of AROMAVITA 93 lies an oil that is highly associated with immune response regulation: Moroccan thyme. Its action comes from its principle molecule, borneol, which can both stimulate and slow down the synthesis of antibodies. Borneol is also an excellent anti-infective and anti-inflammatory.
In conclusion, AROMAVITA 93 is the perfect formula to boost immunity. It can also aid in both the direct and indirect fight against inflammation and infection.
