Preventive Immunity

White blood cells – or leukocytes – are the body’s defense cells that destroy foreign agents, for example, bacteria, viruses and toxic substances that attack our body and cause infections or other diseases. There are also enzymes that refer to the antioxidant defense system that plays the role of inhibiting and/or reducing the damage caused by the harmful action of free radicals or non-radical reactive species.

Notes
Minor T-cell activation following ingestion of Ashwagandha tinctures, must be replicated.
Increase in salivary IgA suggests an immune enhancing effect; no comparison to a lively control.
