We collect them by the bushel to display in baskets on our porches or in our living rooms. We smear them with peanut butter and sprinkle them with bird seed to function as natural bird feeders. We spray paint them gold and hang them as ornaments or weave them into wreaths.
Pine Cones come from the pine tree. A mystical tree worshiped in many past civilizations, the pine tree represents immortality in the far east due to its long life span and its peculiar sap. It usually grows atop rocky mounts, in dry and poor soil that are acidic and sandy. The pine tree can grow to gigantic sizes, and its circumference is impressive.
In North America and in Europe, young growth of Scots pine trees have long been an ingredient to prepare herbal tea. Indeed, its benefits are known to treat:
- Rheumatism and wounds that are rebellious to healing (in the form of lotions).
- Common colds and pulmonary tract mucus lining inflammation (in the form of inhaled vapor treatment).
- Century-old traditional medicinal baths are an integral part of what the German people believe in. The hygienist doctor Kneipp used his influence to help medicinal baths become a common treatment for many ailments in Germany.
- Pine tree is also recommended to treat diseases resulting from nerve malfunction, neuralgic disorders and rheumatism.
Relaxing in a bathtub with pine tree extracts is for sure beneficial to your health.
Pine cone Extract
Pine cone extract has a medicinal history dating back to the ancient Greeks. The Greek physician, Pedanius Dioscorides (40-90 AD) first documented the health benefits of pine cone extract in De Materia Medica, a five-volume work detailing herbs and plants and the medicines that can be made from them.
This work was widely read for 1,500 years, making it one of the longest-lasting of all natural history books.
Pine cone extract contains a number of bioactive phytochemicals that benefit the immune system. Polysaccharides, tannins, lignins and phenolic acids are all present in pine cone extract and have been clinically shown to stimulate cellular immune response and to increase your body’s production of antibodies.
Pine cone Extract Health Benefits
Research on pine cone extract suggests that it:
- inhibits the growth of HIV in human T cells
- inhibits the growth of influenza
- inhibits the growth of the herpes simplex virus
- inhibits tumor activity
- suppress lymphoma – cancer that involves cells of the immune system.
ImmunExtra is an all natural, vegetarian, clinically-tested supplement containing Proligna, a botanical extract derived from pine cones that optimizes your immune system. The immune system protects the body from infection. A person with a weak immune system may be more prone to frequent infections. White blood cells, antibodies, and other components, including organs and lymph nodes, make up the body’s immune system.
Many disorders can weaken the immune system and cause a person to become immunocompromised. These disorders can range from mild to severe. Some are present from birth, while others result from environmental factors. Stress, poor diet, lack of sleep, even medication can reduce your immune system's ability to work at its peak.
Recent research shows that Immunextra reduces the Th2 arm of the immune system while at the same time promoting the Th1 arm of the immune system. Th1 and Th2 cells play an important role in immunity. Th1 cells stimulate cellular immune response, participate in the inhibition of macrophage activation and stimulate B cells to produce IgM, IgG1. Th2 stimulates humoral immune response, promotes B cell proliferation and induces antibody production
This means that with the ImmunExtra you’re getting comprehensive immune protection.
