Physical activity speeds up metabolism, while sedentary work is literally the "plague" of our time. Food, drink and certain spices also have an effect on the metabolism.

Let's take a look together at how you can kick-start your metabolism too!

What is metabolism?

The word metabolism comes from the Greek "metabolismos", which translates as change. Metabolism in the human body is the metabolism and energy exchange in which the body receives and processes the nutrients necessary for its functioning, i.e. for our life.

On the one hand, our body takes in complex nutrients and breaks them down into simpler substances (catabolism), and on the other hand, it builds more complex mechanisms from simpler substances, for example building muscle mass (anabolism).

Basal or resting metabolism is the metabolism that keeps our body running normally.

Hypermetabolism is an accelerated metabolism. It is often associated with increased thyroid function, fever, but also other diseases.

4 factors that affect your metabolism

  1. Gender - Men generally have a faster metabolism because they are simply bigger than women and therefore have more muscles and larger body organs. Another difference is a slightly different hormonal setup.
  2. Weight, height and body composition - But beware, more muscles logically burn more energy at rest than more fat. So a person with less muscles and more fat will have a "slower" metabolism than the same person with more muscles and less fat.
  3. Age - With the natural loss of active body mass due to aging, the metabolic rate logically decreases. We can combat the age factor in particular with strength training and prevent the loss of muscle tissue.
  4. Genetics - Yes, it's a fact. Genetic influences play a role here as well. Someone has slightly more powerful genes than another by nature, we can learn to live with that and combat it with a healthy lifestyle. However, serious obesity-related genetic defects affect less than 1% of the population. Without these genetic defects, it is really hard to find any strong genetic background for obesity that predisposes anybody to be overweight. You can read more about genetics in our article on genetic predispositions.

5 tips to speed up your metabolism

Now that we know what the metabolism is, let's take a look together at 5 tips to speed it up and make it more efficient, for example in the area of weight loss.

Eat more protein

Not only is protein the most satiating macronutrient, but it also requires the most energy of all nutrients for its metabolism, roughly 20-30% of its energy value. Thus, out of 100 calories ingested in the form of protein, we actually use about 70-80 calories. In fact, protein metabolism itself requires a significant amount of energy to incorporate protein into our own tissues (muscles or organs) or to "burn" it for energy and excrete waste products when we take in unnecessarily large amounts of protein.

Not only will a sufficient protein intake please your protein-hungry muscles, satisfy your taste buds and keep you sufficiently full, but you will also "burn" most of your energy just like that. That's good, right?

But let's not forget about carbohydrates! Carbohydrate metabolism allows us to release more energy in a short time.

Drink more water

How can water help speed up your metabolism a little bit, you ask? For the most part, our bodies are made up of water, and we simply cannot do without it. It is in the "water environment" inside our bodies that all biochemical processes take place and energy is obtained.

All living cells contain so-called mitochondria (small power plants) that produce energy for us. It turns out that when we are properly hydrated, mitochondria perform their function a little better than when we are thirsty.

Drink green tea and coffee (but in moderation)

Coffee and tea are undoubtedly healthy drinks, as they contain a number of antioxidants and other biologically active substances that are healthy for us. The bonus of these two beverages is that, thanks to caffeine, they are such natural "fat burners." Every time you have your cup of coffee or tea, there is a slight increase in your resting metabolic rate, mainly due to the adrenaline released, which has a positive effect on the use of fat (fatty acids) as an energy source.

But beware, more is not better! You shouldn't overdo it with caffeine. Ideally, stick to around 400 mg of caffeine per day (3-4 espressos or 6-7 teas). If you overdo it with caffeine, instead of a metabolism kick, you'd be worried about headaches, nausea, rapid heartbeat, irritability and uncomfortable heart palpitations. Less is more ...

A recent meta-analysis confirms the above results and shows that caffeine may help promote fat reduction, but the results are not overwhelming.

Sleep regularly

In general, anything less than 6 hours per day is considered insufficient sleep, and the ideal sleep time for most of the adult population is between 7-9 hours per day. We must also pay great attention to the quality of sleep and respect our natural biorhythms. Inadequate sleep can be responsible for greater appetite, less satiety from food, lower testosterone levels and higher levels of stress hormones. Very often this leads to unnoticeable and creeping weight gain.

Eat regularly, avoid overeating

You should also not skip your snack in the morning, it should follow 2-3 hours after breakfast.

Have a small snack in the afternoon too, it will prevent you from overeating during the main meals and it won't let your metabolism "fall asleep".

You will be full of energy and you will burn intensely throughout the day.

Accelerating your metabolism is a gradual process that can take months or years, but with a proper and consistent diet, a healthy lifestyle, plenty of exercise and fluids, you will surely succeed!

FUBAMEX can, thanks to its unique composition, help with the start of metabolism. But it also requires patience. Herbs do not act immediately, but gradually. Our packaging, which contains 180 capsules - designed for 3 months of use - is adapted to this.

Every athlete or even non-athlete is interested in it, the talk is of course about the regeneration of the organism. Let's take a look together at the laws of the world of regeneration, what regeneration actually is and how to support it.

The concept of regeneration of the organism

Regeneration refers not only to the process of repairing damaged tissues, but also to replacing lost tissues, organs or limbs. In plants, regeneration is mediated by meristems (dividing tissues), in animals by cells that have the capacity to divide.

In short, regeneration means some kind of return to the original state or improvement of the existing state, for example after a difficult operation or accident.

It is necessary to add biologically active substances with a high absorption rate to a body free of toxins, which is the basic pillar of regeneration. The detoxification of the organism, which is very much intertwined with this process, is also related to this topic.

Regeneration rate

The rate of recovery depends directly on the health of the individual, the availability of food and drink, physical and mental fitness and the opportunity to rest. The body's recovery from injury or illness is faster if the body receives increased numbers of vitamins and nutrients to restore all bodily functions.

What affects our regeneration?

On the one hand, these are factors that are completely beyond our control, i.e. our genetic information and possible irreversible changes in the body (a missing organ or destroyed tissue). Fortunately, there are a few that we can consciously influence. But first, let's remind ourselves how nature and the human body works.

Just as day and night and the seasons change, so does the activity of various organs and tissues in the body. Even our autonomic (will-independent) nervous system switches between activity (activity, concentration) and passivity (rest, relaxation).

These two parts are called the sympathetic and parasympathetic. In order for the body to be healthy, the two parts need to complement each other, one working for a while and then the other. It's all encoded in our DNA. Our body tries to ensure that all organs, neural pathways, hormonal pathways, biochemical processes and even emotional reactions are used equally. Then everything is in balance and the system makes the most efficient use of the available energy and has enough energy for repair, for growth and development and for self-realization.

But it probably won't surprise anyone that it doesn't always work ideally. If only because we live in a world in which we are exposed to many different stimuli to which we react, consciously or subconsciously.

Any external change activates primarily the sympathetic nervous system, which helps the body cope with danger and changes in life conditions (even positive ones). This reaction is known as stress.

Conversely, the parasympathetic part of the nervous system relaxes the body and engages processes that lead to the replenishment of building material (digestion, absorption) and energy (rest, sleep). The proportion of time spent in both modes then largely influences our regenerative capacity.

3 principles for proper regeneration

Now that we know what regeneration is, let's see how each of us can speed it up. It's also good to say that regeneration is happening in the body all the time, even without our intervention, so to make it as effective as possible we have prepared these five tips for you.

Getting enough sleep

Your body will probably ask for it soon enough. Still, it's good to remember that getting enough sleep is crucial for successful recovery. Sleep plays a major role in recovery and stress reduction. In addition, if you are active in a sport or your goal is to gain muscle mass, you should pay attention to it. After exercising or training, you can choose to regenerate in the form of a sauna, massage or stretching. However, far more effective regeneration processes take place during sleep.

Treat yourself to 6 to 8 hours of quality sleep and let your body get stronger.

Healthy Lifestyle

A balanced diet, along with getting enough sleep, drinking and exercise, are the pillars of a healthy lifestyle. A healthy diet is the best thing you can do to boost your immunity as well as your mental and physical recovery.

In such a diet, you will find plenty of protein, carbohydrates, fats, vitamins and minerals, as well as probiotics or fibre. Ideally, all the ingredients are taken in naturally - from a varied diet.

Movement

It's a theme that is repeated over and over again, but the foundation of health lies in exercise. We don't mean that you have to go to the gym tomorrow morning and lift weights for an hour. You just need to change a few things in your daily life, like swapping the elevator for the stairs, getting off the bus one stop before your destination, or doing an 8-minute workout that you can find online.

There is a plethora of activities and everyone will find one that they will really enjoy. Every extra move you make tomorrow will contribute to your overall health, which includes your life expectancy, disease resistance, body shape and your weight.

Top 4 foods for our body and regeneration

Let's take a look at what plants will help you on your journey to better recovery.

Spirulina

This amazing plant contains more than 100 biologically active substances for our health (proteins, amino acids, vitamins, nucleic acids, a huge spectrum of minerals, chlorophyll, enzymes, polyunsaturated fatty acids, antioxidants, etc.) 1g of quality spirulina is equivalent in nutrients to 1 kg of vegetables.

Green barley

It is characterized by a rich content of minerals, vitamins, amino acids, enzymes. Thanks to its alkaline pH, it also helps to restore the acid-alkaline balance.

Flax seed

It contains mainly unsaturated fatty acids (80-90%), which consist of 20-30% oleic and linoleic acids and 40-60% linoleic acid. It therefore provides omega 3, 6 and 9 acids in optimal proportions. The phytoestrogen lignin contained in flaxseed affects the immune system with its anti-estrogenic properties. Lignins can affect the processes that lead to those cancers that are hormone dependent (breast, uterine and prostate cancer).

Lycium chinense (Chinese boxthorn)

A gem of traditional Chinese medicine. It harmonizes liver and kidney function, contains a large amount of beta-carotene, vitamin C, B1, B2, B6, E, essential amino acids, trace elements (zinc, selenium, iron, calcium, etc.) The Chinese also consider the boxthorn to be a powerful aphrodisiac that increases the level of sex hormones in the blood in men.

There are plenty of ways to keep your body fit and in good condition, after all, we only have one. The basics are of course a healthy lifestyle, quality sleep and of course diet. We hope you enjoyed our article and it gave you the answer on how to properly support your body's regeneration.

For the regeneration of the body, we have developed the SHAYA supplement especially for women. We have not forgotten about men either, we offer DELWEX.

We do not forget that herbs act slowly, so each package contains 180 capsules, which is a dose for 3 months of use.

Cell death or how animal and plant cells die

Apoptosis, a form of programmed cell death, occurs in animals (vertebrates and invertebrates) during ontogenetic development. It is only in the last decade that the study of apoptosis has come to the forefront of interest for molecular biologists.

New findings in cell death research have enabled advances in the treatment of cancer and some neurodegenerative diseases. Views on cell death have been evolving for almost 150 years and have undergone many changes. Whereas in the past almost no one studied cell death, today the topic is of interest not only to biologists and biochemists, but also to physicians and pharmacologists.

Apoptosis and necrosis

"Cell death is a degenerative process caused, for example, by injury. The changes that accompany this process are similar to the post-mortem decomposition that takes place in dead animals." This is approximately how the pathologist R. Virchow formulated cell death in the middle of the 19th century. It is therefore not surprising that researchers have not been particularly interested in it. It was not until the mid-20th century that they noticed that cell death is part of the normal development of animal embryos. However, the fact that "natural" cell death could be an active process controlled by the dying cell itself was overlooked for a long time. It was only in the 1970s that cell death began to be studied systematically, on the basis of morphological features.

Apoptosis is characterized by the characteristic condensation of the cell and nucleus. It represents active cell death in which the dying cell participates by activating specific genes. The occurrence of apoptosis has been associated with physiological conditions and has been rather restricted to single cells. Apoptotic cells have been found not to cause inflammation in the surrounding tissue and are engulfed by neighbouring cells. In contrast, necrosis was defined as passive cell death that occurs under non-physiological conditions, such as after an exposure to toxins. A characteristic morphological feature of necrosis is the swelling of mitochondria and whole cells, which results in the disintegration of all cellular structures and organelles.

Three phases of apoptosis

Apoptosis is usually divided into three phases: it is initiated by damage to the cell, stress or a change in hormone levels, then regulatory genes kick in and either trigger repair mechanisms or activate caspase proteases, and finally the cell is killed, meaning that most of the important cellular proteins are irreversibly cleaved by caspases. Nuclear DNA is also irreversibly destroyed (cleaved by endonucleases).

Three options for programmed cell death

A more general classification of programmed cell death was introduced by the Swiss embryologist J. Clark. Although it was already formulated in the late 1980s, it has only achieved wider acceptance in recent years. Clark defined three basic morphological types of programmed cell death: apoptotic, autophagic and non-lysosomal. His division also reflects the different mechanisms of cell destruction according to the involvement of lysosomes. In heterophagy (apoptosis), the cell's own lysosomes do not participate in the destruction of the cell; its "remains" are engulfed by the lysosomes of surrounding cells. Autophagy, on the other hand, is characterized by the main contribution to the degradation of its own lysosomes. In non-lysosomal degradation, proteolysis takes place directly in the cytoplasm of dying cells.

However, even Clark's classification of programmed cell death according to lysosomal involvement cannot be universally accepted. It has been found that cathepsins released from lysosomes can participate in the activation of caspase proteases.

Cell organelles as sensors of cell death

The most recent approach to classifying programmed cell death moves away from morphological features and emphasizes the mechanisms that trigger the process. It turns out that it is possible to identify individual cell organelles that receive the initial signals of cell death and, depending on the intensity of the signal, trigger either a "defensive" response that leads to a steady state (homeostasis) of the cell, or programmed cell death, possibly even necrosis with extreme stimuli.

Among the earliest identified cellular structures inducing apoptosis are the cytoplasmic membrane and its "death receptors".

Mitochondria are dominant in triggering apoptosis and programmed cell death in general. This organelle is not only the collector of the primary stimuli of apoptosis, but also receives secondary signals from other organelles and cellular structures. Signalling pathways are directed to the mitochondria that ultimately affect the permeability of both membranes. The outer membrane begins to leak proteins and internal ions, leading to a collapse of the transmembrane potential.

Although it is still debated whether the inner or outer membrane disruption is more important for triggering apoptosis, it has been shown that proteins released from the intermembrane space of mitochondria directly activate enzymes involved in cell destruction, especially caspases and endonucleases.

 

 

Interesting things to conclude

Research on cell death has led to a number of important discoveries that have implications beyond biology. They have changed our view of the role of mitochondria. Until the mid-1990s, they were regarded as organelles without which life would hardly be possible, as they provide most of the cell's energy needs through their production of adenosine triphosphate. Since the mid-1990s, however, we have also known that mitochondria actively decide on cell death and have the "final say" in this decision.

Furthermore, it became clear that in the realm of multicellular organisms, death is absolutely necessary for life, and not only on a philosophical level.

People often ask us what causes the body to regenerate and get rid of health problems. We are usually surprised by the claim that everything is pre-programmed in the body and the body has its own healing powers. We just have to help it create good internal conditions for these self-healing forces to work.

Because sometimes people still do not understand the nature of these healing powers, we would like to bring you closer to these laws of regeneration. Basically, these are the laws according to which every organism and also controlled regeneration works.

Law of Genetic Information

The first law that determines the functioning of individual cells is the genetic information that is encoded in the nucleus of each cell. This is a certain program according to which cells function in all the situations they find themselves in during their lives. A cell has a program for how to behave, when to bind a hormone to its receptors (this is actually a "messenger" that delivers instructions from another organ), what to do when attacked by a virus, when to divide, when to destroy itself, etc.

The genetic program, of course, programs the ideal functioning of the cell, including all responses to external stimuli.

The law of homeostasis

Another important law that plays a decisive role in the regeneration of the organism is the law of homeostasis. It operates in living organisms in general, both at the level of individual cells and at the level of organs or the whole organism. The concept of homeostasis in biology was described and published by the French physiologist Claude Bernard in 1865. The actual term "homeostasis" comes rom the American physiologist W. B. Cannon (1932). Basically, it is the fact that every organism has a number of different regulatory mechanisms built into it. By means of these, the organism is constantly adapting to the changing conditions in which it is placed. And in spite of the changed conditions, it still tries to keep the internal environment of our organism as constant as possible and favorable for the activity of cells, tissues, organs and the whole organism.

Acid-base balance of the organism

Also important is the so-called acid-base balance of the body, which is the balance between acids and bases in the body. It is actually about maintaining a stable biochemical environment within the body. For example, the body maintains a constant chemical composition of the blood, and certain concentrations of ions, especially sodium, potassium and calcium, are maintained in the cells and in the intercellular environment. Individual cellular components also need a constant chemical environment - e.g. the cellular "power plants" of the mitochondria. The stability of this environment in terms of acidity or alkalinity (determined by the so-called pH) is very important.

Just to give you an idea, we have approximately 3,500 different types of enzymes in the body. Enzymes affect most reactions in the body, from oxygen transfer through the blood to liver detoxification. Enzymes are very sensitive to the pH of the fluid in which they act, and also to the temperature. For example, enzymes are known to be destroyed at temperatures above 42 degrees Celsius. And because enzymes affect so many reactions in the body, a high temperature above 42 degrees Celsius is dangerous for humans, and therefore humans die when they reach this temperature.

Where do we observe homeostasis?

We all know this example. If we are in a hot environment - for example, in an overheated room or travelling to warm countries - we all know that we start to sweat. This is the body's way of cooling itself - its goal is to keep our temperature constant. If the body did not regulate its temperature, according to the laws of physics, our body temperature would gradually adjust to our surroundings. This means that if we were in a desert where the temperature is 45 degrees Celsius, our body would soon be that temperature too. However, this will not happen precisely because of homeostasis, our temperature will remain at the normal 36.7 degrees, we just sweat more.

You may never have thought of it that way, but when you get cold in the winter and start shivering, it's also your body's attempt to produce more heat through increased movement, and thus naturally maintain a steady temperature. Even this shivering is just an example of homeostasis in action.

Another case. We normally eat 3 to 5 times a day, and usually don't eat at night (except for night shift workers and notorious eaters). And yet, even at night, we are alive, still breathing, our heart beats, everything works, and we have a steady temperature. Again, it is the body's regulatory mechanisms, homeostasis in fact, that ensures these constant conditions.

Homeostasis in a broader sense

Homeostasis is not only about individuals (biological homeostasis) but also about whole communities (ecological homeostasis). Almost all stable systems, such as ecological systems, maintain some form of homeostasis, for example adapting reproduction to available food or changing their strategies according to external conditions.

The well-known British chemist and ecologist James Lovelock put forward the Gaia hypothesis, according to which the whole planet is a kind of superorganism that maintains stable conditions for life thanks to the overall homeostasis. Lovelock shows this with the hypothetical example of an animated planet that maintains a stable temperature by varying its albedo, the rate of absorption of solar radiation.

The most important idea of homeostasis in relation to humans

A healthy body is able to resist illness, repair damage caused by injury and cope with stress. In times of illness, the body loses this ability. For example, not everyone who comes down with a flu infection is always bound to get sick.

Homeostasis is an important concept to know, not only in relation to our bodies. At the same time, it must be said that the law of homeostasis always works in the body. Even though we may not notice it at all. It is our great helper on the path of controlled regeneration.

Humans are closely intertwined with their environment. The environment has a particular effect on humans through its influence on their physical and psychological state. It also influences mankind's economic activity, the level of civilization and culture, and the overall formation of the people’s lifestyle.

People are always interacting with their environment. On the one hand, they are positively or negatively influenced by the environment, and, on the other hand, they are constantly changing their environment, either positively or negatively. People are very active in intervening in their environment in order to adapt it to their needs. Often, after a certain period of time, these changes turn against them.

Air

Air pollution is one of the factors that contributes to human health. Over the last few decades, a lot of evidence has been gathered on its negative effects. The most important sources of pollution are local heating plants, road transport, industry and energy.

Exposure to air pollution is associated with cardiovascular and respiratory diseases. It causes asthma and allergies, increases the possibility of cancer, atherosclerosis and diabetes, and accelerates the ageing process. Pollutants do not necessarily cause disease directly, but often result in worsening the course of illness.

Air pollution also leads to the death of vegetation and birds. Acid rain can enter the environment because of the reaction of the pollution with rainwater, which further damages the environment and can endanger people or their property.

Think about whether you are contributing to outdoor air pollution. Prefer public or pedestrian transport to driving, consider whether you are not overheating the rooms and never burn waste such as plastics and rubber in stoves or boilers.

Water

Although contaminated drinking or bathing water is not one of the main causes of disease in developed countries, the risk should not be underestimated. Drinking water is one of the basic necessities of life and its adequate intake is a prerequisite for the proper functioning of all processes in the human body. If its quality does not meet hygiene requirements, it can cause various health problems.

The main water pollutants include fertilizer and pesticide runoff from fields and wastewater discharges from households, businesses and farms.

High concentrations of organic matter or fertilizers in water lead to eutrophication. The consequence is an overgrowth of cyanobacteria. Their mass die-off results in a lack of oxygen in the water, leading to the death of fish and other organisms. It is also very dangerous to bathe in this water because the cyanobacteria produce substances that are toxic to humans.

Heavy metals enter the watercourses from waste and pollutants. They accumulate in the bodies of organisms, especially fish. Chronic poisoning can occur after long-term consumption of such fish. Heavy metals include mercury - mercury poisoning mainly affects the nervous system. If our body is exposed to mercury for a long time, memory loss or sleep disorders and other health problems occur.

Drinking water or eating aquatic animals can also introduce microplastics, tiny particles of plastic waste, into your body. They have the ability to absorb chemicals from the water and can contaminate the human body with toxic substances.

Polluted waters are usually the most threatening to aquatic organisms. It disrupts the natural cycles of nature and thus reduces the quality of the environment. Pollution from water is often passed on to the soil. This then has a further impact on the quality and quantity of agricultural products.

Noise

Sounds that are too frequent, too loud or occur at inappropriate times and situations are referred to as noise. Noise is any unwanted sound which is disturbing or annoying in nature or which has harmful effects on human health, regardless of its volume. Noise can annoy you, disturb you from your daily activities (sleeping, talking, reading) or even damage your body.

Noise nuisance is the most general human response to noise pollution. Although it doesn't seem like it, it can be very dangerous in the long run. Your mind responds to noise with irritability, anger, anxiety and in some cases even psychosomatic disorders. Excessive noise causes stress, which can have a secondary negative effect on your body by lowering your immunity or promoting the development of cardiovascular disease.

Serious health effects of noise include adverse effects on sleep. Sleep is necessary for the proper functioning of our bodies and minds. Disrupted sleep is associated with a range of adverse effects - cardiovascular disease, depression and other psychological disorders, obesity and reduced life expectancy.

Extremely high sound pressure levels can result in permanent hearing damage. Avoid being in excessively noisy environments.

Beauty of nature

The aesthetic value of nature and landscape is also very important to us. The law even mentions it as one of the reasons for protecting natural monuments.

Nature is a place to calm down and recharge one's strength. The sight of beautiful, clean nature pleases us, we want to live in beautiful places. Beauty has a powerful effect on us - it affects our psyche in a positive way, which means we are happier and more productive. In a beautiful environment, we relax more easily, we don't stress so much.

 

The environment affects people in many ways, for example their health or economic or aesthetic side. The health aspect reflects the negative effects caused by pollution of the basic components of the environment. A number of health problems (cancer, infertility, allergies, nervous system disorders and many other similar) are closely related to various environmental pollutants.

The level of the environment is increasingly becoming a reflection of society's concern for human beings and is thus becoming a political issue of paramount importance.

Our company NATURAMEDICIN uses the phrase "biologically active food supplements".

Why do we use this phrase and what does it mean?

It all comes from history, when our ancestors had to have a broad knowledge of plants and animals to increase their ability to survive. Ancient shamans, healers and doctors had to know all the effects of each plant on humans. And they were able to apply this knowledge to treat various diseases and other ailments.

All the plants and substances that are contained in our products are part of this planet, they are not chemically produced substances and materials. Thus, we strive to preserve the biological cycle of life while taking the best knowledge of herbs from history for the betterment of life.

We do not, unlike others, want to destroy ourselves and this planet.

That is why we call our products "Biologically Active Dietary Supplements".

Immunity is the body's defense against various pathogens such as viruses and bacteria. It is the coming cold days that are the biggest burden on our immunity. The body is coping with temperature changes, less sunlight and a decrease in vital energy. It's a natural cycle, but some people have a harder time with it.

Here are some tips on how to strengthen your immune system naturally so it has the strength to fight off colds and unwanted environmental influences.

Sleep well

The key to a healthy life and balanced immunity is quality sleep. Lack of sleep significantly weakens the body and makes it more susceptible to various diseases. In winter, this is doubly true - our body reacts to the shorter days by slowing down, requiring more rest. Treat yourself.

The ideal is 8 hours every day. It is also recommended to put away your mobile phone and other screens at least two hours before going to bed for better sleep and faster falling asleep.

Movement

Movement is as important to the body as sleep, and active movement is one of the foundations of a healthy lifestyle. Strengthening physical fitness is a prerequisite for a strong and properly functioning immune system.

It doesn't have to be a big deal - just start walking more, take the stairs instead of the lift, and go for a walk at the weekend. It's also a good idea to try running, cycling or swimming. The important thing is not to overexert yourself, but to gradually increase the load to a level that does not cause pain. Light exercise is also a good activity, yoga is ideal.

Being outdoors in the fresh air is also essential.

Getting used to cold

Exposing the body to cold has a great effect on the body's defenses. You don't have to dive into a river of ice right away - that would do more harm than good. What is important is gradual, regular and controlled hardening, which helps the body to get used to changes in temperature. In fact, you are training your body not to succumb to sudden changes.

For example, the Finnish sauna is a good way to toughen up the body. But you can also work out at home without any problems. Simply start showering with cold water and reduce the temperature by one degree Celsius every day until you reach 20°C.

Hardy people suffer fewer illnesses than those who avoid the cold. Ambient viruses and bacteria usually do not have as great an effect on hardy people, and if they do become ill, the course of the illness is milder and the illness also often resolves more quickly.

Keep your feet warm

The cold restricts blood flow in the peripheral parts of the body, such as the hands and feet.  This causes the extremities to get cold quickly, which often results in the onset of illness. If you keep your feet warm, you can avoid unpleasant winter colds.

Much of our heat is lost through the surface of our heads, so make sure you wear a hat in the cold. It's a good idea to layer your clothes, the layer of air between each piece of clothing acts as thermal insulation.

But don't overdo anything: if you wear too much clothing, you'll sweat and get cold anyway.

A balanced diet

We can also help our defenses to be stronger by having a healthy diet. Closely related to immunity are natural immunomodulators, which are substances capable of interfering with our body's immune response.

It may surprise you, but immunity is also boosted by mushrooms. They contain the important immunomodulators beta-glucans. These are a really effective way to boost immunity - they help by activating macrophages and NK cells of the immune system. Numerous studies have even documented their promising anti-cancer effects, but these need further research. One of the best topical sources of beta-glucans is oyster mushrooms. Various types of boletes and parasol mushrooms, or the Japanese shiitake mushroom, are also beneficial. In addition to mushrooms, beta-glucans are also found in oats and barley.

Omega-3 fatty acids are a very good and relatively inexpensive immunomodulator. They have a strong anti-inflammatory effect. They can be found mainly in fish (e.g. tuna, salmon or sea bass) or in flax and chia seeds. However, you should not overdo it with omega-3 fatty acids, as this will have a negative effect on your immune system. Garlic contains a powerful natural antibiotic, allicin. Grandmothers recommended eating two or three cloves of raw garlic every day. You can perhaps mash it and spread it on your bread. Cooking, however, greatly reduces its effects.

Don't forget to strengthen your intestinal microflora! Up to 70% of the cells of the immune system are located in the intestine. Sour dairy products are ideal for this. Consuming them promotes the growth of valuable strains of friendly bacteria in the intestines and in turn prevents the overgrowth of harmful microorganisms.

Ensure the body also gets enough vitamins. Vitamins A, B, C and D contribute to strengthening the body's resistance. A great source of vitamin C is sea buckthorn, rosehips or citrus fruits.

The most important thing is to eat stress-free, at regular intervals and smaller portions of good quality and fresh ingredients. You should also follow a regular drinking regime. The optimum amount of fluid to drink per day for an adult is between 2 and 3 litres.

Mainly peace and quiet

It may sound ridiculous, but when you are relaxed and “at ease”, your body will actually be more resilient.

When you laugh, hormones (mainly endorphin) are released, which have a positive effect not only on your mental state, but also on your physical side.

Stress weakens your body and lowers your immunity. Many diseases are caused by poor mental state and exhaustion. Therefore, avoid stressful situations and learn to relax.

 

If you want to strengthen your immune system effectively and prevent diseases, you must first of all follow the principles of a healthy lifestyle. But don't expect miracles overnight! Building your immunity is a gradual process that cannot be sped up and needs to be addressed comprehensively. That's why it's important not only to adopt new habits, but also to persevere with them over the long term.

You can also take dietary supplements to help you, we have developed EQINIL, which is wonderfully suited to support the development of immunity.

Over millions of years, mankind has evolved and adapted to the environmental influences that have affected the human body. Within a few centuries, humans have made a huge leap forward in knowledge. The giants of science and their discoveries during the last two hundred years have brought about major changes, but also pushed us closer to self-destruction. We can treat smallpox or various types of cancer with devices that were unthinkable just twenty years ago. But at the same time, humans have developed weapons that can turn our beautiful and unique planet full of life into a desolate, dead place. We now consider treatments of various diseases with nanorobots, which other robots or medical staff inject into the body and then nanorobots repair the broken part of the heart, fully replacing surgical procedures.

We humans must return to our essence, protect our planet from overexploitation, pollution, and deforestation. We must protect ourselves and nature, which we are part of, against insatiable people who think they can move to another planet, or maybe they simply do not care about other people. . . Due to the degraded environment, our body absorbs organic and inorganic particles, dust, mites, viruses, parasites, and various moulds through diet, respiration, and general activity.

Stress has the worst impact on our health. The individual organs of our body are in constant emergency, eliminating unwanted toxins, fungi, viruses, and bacteria, which are slowly but steadily killing our body and thus shorten our active life. Our body has a defensive wall that fights alien elements called the immune system. The most important thing is to keep this unique system in the best possible condition and strengthen it through good diet, healthcare, exercise, rest, and meditation. We can significantly help our immune system by supplying it with vitamins, herbs, and other minerals through regular diet.

These are all ingredients that our body needs to cope well in fighting against toxins and other triggers of apoptosis that threaten our health. That is why NATURAMEDICIN has put together the first six essential biologically active dietary supplements made up of herbs from all over the world to quickly and specifically help the immune system restore a healthy balance in the human body.

When putting together the herbal formula, we decided to start from four directions of perception of nature, which shape and influence us in the cycles of our being, revival, and destruction:

Natural elements

Senses

Factors

Elements


Let us have a look at these four directions in more detail. For starters, just a little overview:

NATURAL ELEMENTS include fire, earth, metal and water. These are elements that we all know well, and each of us has encountered them in our lives.

Our SENSES – Sight, smell, touch, taste, and hearing. The senses affect us from the moment we are born. They enable us to perceive our surroundings, what we eat, how we develop, what we perceive and shape us as a person.

Based on experience, we have added a third level, namely Factors.

FACTORS that currently have a major effect on our health. The most important are Diet, Mental State, Environment, Disease Susceptibility, and Genetics.

ELEMENTS according to Chinese medicine include Tree (wood), Earth,Water, Fire, and Metal.

We have called this system of four directions the TREE OF LIFE. Once people begin to colonise Mars and other planets, other influences that will affect human health will be defined.

The most effective medicines and dietary supplements will always be made of herbs and other plants given to us by our Mother Earth.

Our distant ancestors, who lived in tribes, had their own medicine man to ward away evil spirits, treat the sick, bless before a hunt as well as before a battle against another tribe. The medicine man was someone who constantly learned about his surroundings. They tried to find out why someone died from one herb and another found relief from pain and other health problems from a different herb. They used all herbs and ingredients from nature. Our ancestors mostly used herbs to cleanse the body. They noticed that animals, when they became ill, chewed certain plants or rolled around in warm water and tried to apply mud to themselves. They found fasting, chewing, or drinking different herbs which they picked in their surroundings, as well as eating certain type of soil, to be effective.

Today, medicine men have been replaced by scientific teams who investigate the effects of individual herbs and look for medicines that can help people. Antibiotics are losing their ability to protect humans as viruses are becoming resistant to them. Yes, we have super modern instruments, tools, and robotic centres where doctors carry out operations that take away the breath of us laymen. Yes, they are the modern-day medicine men, but when you talk to these people, you realise just how much they value nature itself, how humble they are towards others, and just how much they value human life.

Every spring the human organism asks us to cleanse our body. Different religions hold a fast, some go hungry, and some use various procedures and food to cleanse their body.

As one saying goes: “Tell me what you eat and I will tell you what sort of person you are”.

The cradle of humankind lies in eastern and southern Africa. The most significant finds of the remains of the species Australopithecus sediba come from the Malapa Cave. Probably the first humans came from the genus Australopithecus. In the province of Mpumalanga in South Africa, scientists have discovered a stone circle consisting of stone ruins, which are so old that even the English Stonehenge and the Great Pyramid of Giza pale in comparison. The researchers determined their age to be 160,000 years and were absolutely shocked to find that it was, in fact, a fully functioning oldest megalithic calendar in the world. African elders knew the place and called it the “Birthplace of the Sun”. Scientists have named it Adam’s Calendar.

When we thought about the names of our food supplements, we did not hesitate and chose names from the words of the language of the ZULU tribe, or a combination of their words. The Zulu are a large African nation living mainly in southern Africa which currently numbers about 10 million. Several Zulu families live in a village in the KwaZulu-Natal province. It is one of the last places in the province where the Zulu lead a traditional life, similar to that going back several centuries. They maintain a strict hierarchy, rituals, and livelihood even though children normally attend school. An important role is played by the seeress who follows the customs, rituals, and old healing methods. If the seeress is unable to help, she sends her patients to hospitals where there are more powerful medicine men.

NATURAMEDICIN has developed five basic food supplements INETHAN, EQINIL, DELWEX, SHAYA, and FUBAMEX, which are made from herbs from all over the world and their extracts. We have called this series the TREE OF LIFE. We have also added a sixth dietary supplement consisting of the roots of our Tree of Life and paying homage to all medicine men of the past and present – we called it INYANGA.


Our herbal products contain adaptogenic plants and mushrooms which were already known in traditional Chinese medicine or Indian Ayurveda. We now present a few plants that increase the body’s resistance through a wide range of physical, chemical, and biochemical factors. Of the many herbs, we chose Panax ginseng, Ginseng, Chisandra chinensis, Rhaponticum carthamoides, Astragalus propinquus, and Lycium chinense.

Other plants and fungi help increase the body’s resistance to stressful situations, such as injury, anxiety, or physical fatigue. Of these, we mention, for instance, Ganoderma lucidum and Ophiocordyceps sinensis. Adaptogenic plants and mushrooms are unique compared to other substances for their ability to help to balance hormones and the immune system. They help the body to maintain optimal homeostasis. In India and China, they are also called rejuvenating plants, plants of immortality, or body energy-boosting substances.

There are many plants and fungi that aspire to being described as adaptogenic, but which have been insufficiently investigated so we can only refer to them as potential or probable adaptogens. These plants and mushrooms are currently undergoing scientific investigation.

On closer examination, we are discovering different combinations of the effect on the body’s systems, functions, and organs. What does Wikipedia tell us about adaptogens?

“Adaptogens have an antioxidant effect, support biosynthesis, in particular the production of the most important amino acids and protein compounds, support the transfer of energy and its sources into the cell, strengthen the metabolism, assimilation and metabolism in general, accelerate the healing and regenerative processes of the organism (tissue, organs, cells, systems). Slow down the aging of the organism (tissue, organs, cells, systems); slow down the degenerative processes in the animal organism, prevent its wear, improve the condition of the nervous system (such as toning, calming and increasing its resistance). Boosts or modulates immunity.

Improves the condition of the hormonal system (endocrine glands). Compensate for pathological fluctuations in the values of various bodily functions and the content of certain substances in the organism or help to improve these functions above standard. Have a preventive anti-cancer effect or inhibit the development of cancer and help to treat it. Improve the tolerability of chemical drugs or therapeutic irradiation and reduce the incidence of adverse effects. Have a preventive anti-inflammatory effect or inhibit the development of inflammation and help to treat it as biogenic stimulators, they stimulate the physical area; improve resilience to physical activity.

As biogenic stimulators, they stimulate the mental area; improve resilience to physical activity act as a strengthening and nourishing agent (roborant) or reduce nutritional requirements and help eliminate the effects of insufficient nutrient intake. Reduce the physical and physical-biological effects of an altered environment, including extreme conditions (effects of cold, heat, drafts, high or low atmospheric pressure, centrifugal forces, etc.) Reduce the chemical and biochemical effects of an altered environment, such as reducing the effects of toxic substances, for example from environmental degradation. Improve potency, libido and overall sexual condition. Improve work or sports performance”

Teams of doctors and scientists around the world are investigating these natural adaptogens, whether these are plants, mushrooms, but also minerals from which they extract highly effective substances that undergo strict clinical and scientific research. Usually, the research leads to the development of a medicine that has special properties to treat various diseases.

We now return to NATURAMEDICIN dietary supplements.

The first dietary supplement INETHAN significantly helps our body to fight toxins and is developed to cleanse the organism and detoxify it. Cleanse the body and regenerate in baths, and treat it to regenerative massages. Yes, this is the road to the recovery of the organism. That is why we have developed a very gentle dietary supplement which will help you to regenerate your body.

INETHAN helps our body to cleanse the organism and detoxify it. In the language of the Zulu people, it means CLEAN.

The natural element assigned to it is AIR, the sense is SMELL, the element is TREE (wood), and the factor is ENVIRONMENT.

It only contains herbs to help our organism to cleanse itself of toxins. The aim of the detoxification of the organism is to cleanse the body, relieve it of all harmful substances, cleanse each organ such as the liver, kidneys and intestines. INETHAN supports the self-recovery processes and harmonisation of our organism and individual energy centres and boosts the energy in the human body.

The second supplement EQINIL is developed to strengthen and increase the immunity of our body. We had long thought about the combination of herbs to help our body create a protective barrier against everything that is harmful to our body. I think we have managed this and the result is:

EQINIL which helps to increase immunity, and in the language of the Zulu people, it means STRONG.

The natural element assigned to it is FIRE, the sense is SIGHT, and the factor is GENETICS.

The human immune system provides protection to the human body against various parasitic organisms such as bacteria, viruses, fungus, parasitic worms, and other organisms that constantly attack our body. Our behaviour certainly does not make it easy for our immune system. We eat unhealthy food, move about in a toxic environment throughout the world, meet other people who have various diseases, and the immune system of our body reacts to everything. Our biologically active dietary supplement EQUINIL is made from herbs that know how to boost the human immune system. It protects bacteria that live in symbiosis with our body and significantly helps regulate the body’s processes so it can create a strong protective shield against viruses, bacteria, and fungi.

The third supplement, intended for women, is SHAYA. It serves to initiate harmonization of the entire organism and to regenerate vital processes in the human body. Given that the needs of men and women differ, we have divided this phase according to genetic dispositions.

SHAYA is intended for women, and in the language of the Zulu people, it means WOMAN.

The element assigned to it is EARTH, the sense is TOUCH, and the factor is MENTAL STATE.

Today, women live under constant stress from a young age and are under continual pressure at work as well as in raising children and looking after their family. SHAYA helps women to cope with stressful situations that affect their state of health. It also helps regenerate the female organs during the menopause.

According to the divided third phase and genetic predispositions, the fourth dietary supplement is DELWEX, and is intended for men.

DELWEX is an original product for men, and the product name is a combination of several Zulu words.

The element assigned to it is WATER, the sense is HEARING, and the factor is DISEASE SUSCEPTIBILITY.

DELWEX helps to regenerate the male body with special focus on the urogenital tract, which is significantly weakened due to stress, leading to loss of self-confidence and to despair. The composition of herbs contained in the dietary supplement help men to regenerate the entire male urogenital tract.

The fifth dietary supplement is FUBAMEX, which helps both men and women with a perpetual issue. How to regulate body weight.

FUBAMEX helps to kick-start the metabolism and regulate weight. The name of the product is a combination of several words in the Zulu language.

The element assigned to it is METAL, the sense is TASTE and the factor is DIET.

The fundamental problem why our weight keeps going up is stress, dietary composition, and our body’s stagnating metabolic system.

People often make a basic mistake. They starve and when they achieve the desired weight, they make the fatal mistake of eating whatever they think of and within a few short weeks they are back to their original weight or even worse. Our biologically active dietary supplement FUBAMEX can help you prevent the yo-yo effect.

Together with FUBAMEX, diet modification, and a good drinking regime, you will finally be able to achieve the desired result.

The sixth dietary supplement is INYANGA.

INYANGA brings about mental well-being. In the language of the Zulu people, it has several meanings HEALER, LUNA, MOON.

The element assigned to it is the ruler of all elements, the energy Chi, assigned to which is SPIRIT, the sense is INTUITION, and the factor is CREATION.

In this day and age, mental well-being is a great gift to us all. Stress is our great enemy, which causes mental problems. It threatens us and our loved ones. The herbs contained in INYANGA contribute to the refreshment of the body and help to maintain mental health. They contribute to the normal function of the nervous system, stimulate hormonal activity, and boost energy. INYANGA works as a natural adaptogen, supports the mental and physical state, and increases body immunity against external influences.


More than thirty years of studying people’s health problems led Bohuslav Větrovský to search for triggers of particular diseases, and he came to realise that it is the convergence of effects which cause changes in our body. He used all his knowledge to the benefit of NATURAMEDICIN, which began to produce dietary supplements based on the recipes of Bohuslav Větrovský. So let’s take a look at the world of herbs used to make these dietary supplements. The individual ingredients are the best that can be obtained on the global market. We hold all the necessary certificates for the individual ingredients which are produced by leading world dietary supplement manufacturers. Our products come in capsules which do not contain any animal components and can be taken by people of all faiths and those on a vegetarian diet.

Bohuslav Větrovský turned his knowledge and experience in the field of natural medicine, herbalism, and other techniques of natural medicine into high quality food supplements, while respecting all directions of faith and at the same time scientific progress. He remembers the herbalist Miss Maria and Dean Valoušek, who introduced him to the secrets of healing and mysticism.

He said the following about the newly developed food supplements: “If one uses herbs to recover their strength and health, they must use them over a long period of time so they have an effect on their health. Therefore, all the dietary supplements contain 180 capsules, which is a three- month therapy. It is the optimal time for the organism to regenerate. The TREE OF LIFE is a regeneration program lasting for seven months. One theory of the renewal of the human body says that the human body changes cells every seven years. It is the rebirth of a human being. That is why we chose seven months for the length of the TREE OF LIFE regenerative therapy.

People often choose to put away herbs and rather use chemical medicines which provide a quick and effective relief. These substances are directive and save human lives. Unfortunately, this does not make the immune and lymphatic system happy. That is why we use herbs that help our body slowly, gently, and in the long term.

Looks like doctors are going to have to rewrite the anatomy textbooks. American researchers may have discovered a new human organ. It is a previously unknown interconnected network of cavities under the skin that also surrounds veins and some other organs. They reported their discovery in Scientific Reports and National Geographic, from which we draw and are our source.

The American doctors, in a fairly routine examination of the patient, took pictures of the bile duct, which contained the strange eyes. They had never seen anything like it before.

So the team gave the results to Professor of Pathology Neil Theise of New York University. He then found that they were small fluid-filled spaces in the so-called interstitium. And, he told National Geographic magazine, much to his surprise, using the same examination method, he found that this subtle network of interconnected spaces was also present around arteries and veins, under the skin, and around the lungs, muscles, or the digestive and urinary tracts, places that anatomists had thought were normal connective tissue.

The new discovery was made possible by doctors using a relatively new way of examining cavities using what is known as optical biopsy (confocal laser endomicroscopy), where a probe with a laser can be used to view the mucous membrane of, for example, the intestines in detail, so that the doctor can see part of the organ in a living state, just like under a microscope. This is a big difference from traditional sampling. These are cut into thin slices and then examined under a microscope. But with dried samples, the newly discovered spaces are not visible. Without liquid, the individual gaps collapse on top of each other like the floors of a demolished house and cannot be distinguished. But they are clear in the optical biopsy images of the same tissue.

What exactly the organ is used for, scientists do not yet know. As Professor Neil Theisy told National Geographic magazine, it may be the previously unknown places where water resides in our bodies. As we know, roughly 60 to 70% of the human body is water. About two-thirds is in the cells, but we only know where the rest is. Researchers think the cavities may serve as shock absorbers of sorts. Another hypothesis is that these spaces are the source of fluid that flows in the lymphatic system and is related to immunity. This could help understand the spread of cancer in the human body, or even prevent it, according to Professor Theise. The question is whether it would then be possible to diagnose cancer from samples of this fluid, for example. But this is speculation for now, and further research will have to confirm it.

Every young baby, immediately after birth, automatically latches on to its mother's breast to suck breast milk.

This precious fluid satiates us while giving us protection from infections and other diseases. The longer we were breastfed, the more defenses we gained and gradually as we switched to a regular diet our body built up a defensive bulwark - our immune system.

Once upon a time in the distant past, when life evolved on this planet, only bacteria existed.

These bacteria were and are several micrometers in size. But despite their insignificant size, they developed an immune system against parasites and other viruses.

We humans today destroy parasites and viruses with antibiotics and other drugs. Unfortunately, this goes hand in hand with a weakening of the immune system. At the same time as this use of antibiotics and medicines, viruses are acquiring resistance to them.

I believe that unless people start using vaccines and drugs that directly interfere with people's DNA, the human species as such may disappear. It will be wiped out by viruses and parasites.

If humans start messing with human DNA, creatures may arise that will eventually diverge from the original humanity. They may have different abilities and may be exploited by various groups that are already trying to manipulate human DNA.

What can we do for our immune system?

So the fundamental question is, what can we do for our immune system? First of all, it is up to us. It is about diet. We all have to change our eating habits and the diet itself. Every one of us is sinning less or more every day. Those who try to eat healthy and exercise regularly are doing good for their bodies. Those who smoke, drink alcohol and indulge in fried and fatty foods are shortening their lives.

But beware! The most significant factor that shortens our lives is the ever-present stress. Everyone of us must have heard that word at least once in our lives. But do we know its meaning?

It is originally the English word Stress and means burden, strain, pressure on the body.

And as each of us knows, every action will provoke a reaction. If you are under tension for a long time, you may have a heart attack, psychological disorders, health problems, family breakdown, death.

Based on our experience, our company has developed a product called INYANGA, which helps our body to better cope with the stress on each organ. Combined with diet modification and our other product for detoxification of the body called INETHAN plus especially with your strong will, you can manage to prolong your own life.
