zamia creates immunologist formulated, functional supplements for focus, calm, sleep and immune support

how does lifestyle support resilience?

nutrition, sleep, stress and movement all impact not only how we enjoy each day and perform but also impact immune function generating inflammation and competing with the immune system

zamia supplements are immunologist formulated, each made from three to five traditional herbs, with open formulas

nutrition

Everything we eat affects our immune system, either positively or negatively

How do we know if it's positive or negative? Remember learning that vegetables were good & sugar was bad?

That's because vegetables have a positive impact on the immune system by increasing the diversity of the microbiome and sugar increases inflammation.

Many micronutrients (Vitamins A, C, D, and E, Zinc, and Selenium) impact the immune system. These vitamins do everything from increase our barrier function to protect us from pathogens, to increasing tolerance so that we don't attack our own cells.

a good night's rest

Having a consistent and healthy sleep-wake cycle is important for proper immune function

The research on sleep and immunity is becoming more and more detailed. Every hour of sleep has as different set of hormones, neurotransmitters, and cytokines associated with it.

Not only do our immune cells have an 'internal clock,' they are responsive to the changes in hormones and neurotransmitters that occur throughout the sleep cycle.

manage stress

Stress is not good for our immune system, but relaxation is.

Stress, specifically the stress hormone cortisol, has different effects during acute stress (an immediate stressor like an argument) versus chronic stress (being in long-term stressful job). These days, chronic stress is the more common issue.

movement

Moderate exercise increases circulation of your blood, improving immunity and activity of different cells of the immune system such as macrophages.

Activity of less than 60 minutes increases circulation of antibodies, anti-inflammatory cytokines, neutrophils, and NK cells.
