Building a stronger self

 

Our health is dependent upon the ability of our bodies to maintain balance under stress and other adverse conditions that we face in our daily lives.   Using the knowledge gained through modern research on health, Yujia is designed to reinforce our body’s most important systems for maintaining balance.

STRENGTHENING

our IMMUNE System

 

Our immune response involves a complex network of specialized cells, tissues, and organs that work in conjunction with other systems to keep our bodies safe from sickness and infection.   There are many products available that promise to boost immunity; unfortunately, they often ineffectively rely on mega-doses of particular nutrients, such as vitamin C, that target a limited number of immune functions instead of addressing the key to a strong immune system — balance.

 

Maintaining balance among the numerous systems involved in our immune response requires us to provide our bodies with a wide range of nutrients such as phytonutrients, vitamins, and fiber.

 

Phytonutrients from Yujia’s premium selection of herbs have shown promise in increasing the resilience of our endocrine (hormonal stress response) system, preempting physiological stress from unbalancing our bodies and disrupting crucial communication between our immune system, nervous system, and endocrine system.   Increased resilience to stress also prevents production of excess cortisol, which suppresses the immune system by decreasing white blood cell count.

 

These herbal nutrients, along with the full spectrum of vitamins provided in Yujia, promote anti-inflammatory activities.   Although inflammation is critical to the function of our immune system, uncontrolled inflammation can hamper our immune system’s function.

 

The soluble fiber provided in Yujia helps support a healthy microflora ecosystem.   A well-balanced microflora ecosystem enables our digestive system to adequately produce B, T, and NK cells used in immune defense, further strengthening our immune system.

 

Rather than ineffectively “boosting” our immune systems by oversupplying particular nutrients, Yujia provides for a larger group of immunity-related systems to help maintain balance within and among these systems, effectively strengthening one of our body’s most important systems for maintaining internal balance and thus health.

ENERGIZING

Our STRESS RESPONSE SYSTEMS

 

When facing social, emotional, and environmental stresses our bodies adapt with complex physiological and biological stress response systems.   Our stress response system is robust, but in today's world, it is easy to overburden and cause a condition known as distress (a disturbance of our internal state of equilibrium that affects nearly every system in our body).   Overburdening our stress response system can raise blood pressure, suppress the immune system, increase the risk of heart attack and stroke, and speed up the aging process.

 

Unfortunately, when people have symptoms signaling that their bodies are overburdened, many only exacerbate their condition by unnaturally stimulating their bodies with caffeine to stay awake or using medication or drinking alcohol to relieve anxiety.   Due to the complexity of our stress response system, masking symptoms of distress when they occur by forcing physiological activity in one direction can only offer modest efficacy and is often accompanied by serious side effects.

 

Unlike unidirectional approaches, Yujia's herbal components have a natural normalizing influence on the body and build adaptive energy to help prevent distress.   The adaptogenic herbs in Yujia help adrenal glands respond more effectively and efficiently to excess or insufficient hormones helping to restore balance to the endocrine system.   These unique herbs also build adaptive energy by conditioning our body's stimulatory and inhibitory responses to stressors.   When we incur stress, this adaptive energy enables our bodies to counterbalance hypo-functioning and hyper-functioning systems to more effectively maintain homeostasis.   Nourishing our bodies with nutrients that regulate, tone, and strengthen our stress response system can enable us to better maintain balance under life's stresses.

ENHANCING

OUR ANTI-OXIDANT SYSTEM

 

Oxidative stress is an imbalance between the production of reactive oxygen species (ROS) and antioxidant defense.   Low levels of ROS naturally produced by the body during energy production serve to modulate the immune system and support cell signaling; processes that are both beneficial and necessary for the body's proper function.   However, excess ROS can cause cell damage and trigger excessive inflammation that contributes to the development of cancer, atherosclerosis, heart failure, Parkinson's disease, and Alzheimer's disease.

 

Because our endogenous antioxidant defenses are not completely effective, we need to assist our bodies with limiting excess ROS.   Attempting to limit excess ROS by taking vitamins known to have antioxidant properties has become very popular, however, although vitamins are unquestionably important to our bodies for a number of reasons, mega-doses of vitamins have generally failed to prevent disease.   On the other hand, many phytonutrients such as flavonoids have been found to have much stronger antioxidant capacities than well-known antioxidant vitamins such as C and E.   The best sources of these ROS scavenging phytonutrients are from whole fruits, vegetables, and herbs that have all of the primary and complementary nutrients to maximize their use.

 

By enhancing our endogenous antioxidant defenses with the full spectrum of phytonutrients available in whole plant foods, we can reduce oxidative damage and detriments of aging associated with oxidative stress.

SUPPORTING

A HEALTHY DIGESTIVE SYSTEM

 

Our digestive systems have important absorption and immunity roles.   When we eat, we usually think of all of the nutrients such as carbohydrates, fats, dietary fiber, minerals, proteins, vitamins, and water that are locked inside our food.   We tend to forget about the plethora of helpful and potentially harmful bacteria that come along with these nutrients.   A healthy digestive system is able to efficiently digest and absorb the nutrients we need from our food while creating a hostile environment for pathogens such as bad bacteria.   Poor digestive health can lead to less nutrients being absorbed, thus causing fatigue and poor health, and decreased immunity that may allow pathogens to take hold and cause infection.

 

To increase digestive health, Yujia has a prebiotic soluble fiber integrated into the formulation.   Soluble fiber ferments more quickly and more fully than insoluble fibers, better supporting a balanced ecosystem of healthy bacteria in the large intestine.   A balanced ecosystem of healthy bacteria is able to simultaneously increase bioavailability of vitamins, minerals, and herbal phytonutrients contained in the tea and inhibit pathogens and harmful bacteria from colonizing, and thus infecting the gut.   Ongoing studies are testing the influence of soluble fiber on lowering low-density lipoprotein (“bad” cholesterol levels), reducing blood pressure and inflammation, and reducing the risk of colon cancer — but suffice it to say that having healthy GI flora is essential to your overall health and longevity!
