Boosting Your Immune System Naturally

by Dr. Michael Lange

Dr. Michael Lange and Fortifeye Vitamins researched the best possible dairy cows to use when developing Fortifeye Super Protein and Fortifeye Grass Fed Whey Isolate. It was concluded that year round grass fed dairy cows that are free from hormones and antibiotics would be used. The milk from these cows would be pasteurized for only 15 seconds at 72 degrees Celsius. This keeps the delicate protein and amino acids intact so they are not denatured loosing the bioavailability of the protein. End result is a non denatured whey protein that has the highest biological value (BV) of all food grade proteins at a BV of 104.

Grass fed cows have 60% omega 3

A non denatured whey protein from grass fed cows will typically have 60% or higher omega 3 content in their milk versus non grass-fed cows milk. This higher content is crucial since the typical diet is pro inflammatory and already too high in omega 6. Drinking a milk protein higher in omega 3 will promote wellness and help the body fight off inflammation and infections. Consuming a whey protein with a higher ratio of omega 3 to omega 6 is a step in the right direction of anti aging and building a strong immune system.

Grass fed pasture raised cows are much higher in a very important fat called conjugated linoleic acid (CLA). CLA has some enormous immune system stimulating properties and positive health benefits. Studies indicate that CLA may also have some anti-diabetic and anti-cancer benefits, as well as be beneficial to heart health. Grass fed pasture raised cows have up to 500% more CLA than non grass-fed cows. New research proving CLA is great for the heart and other potential diseases.

A bioactive non denatured whey protein like Fortifeye Super Protein or Fortifeye Grass Fed Whey Isolate is one the best ways to stimulate the master antioxidant and detoxifier in the body called Glutathione. Non denatured means the protein has not been heated or altered. The key amino acid, cysteine, combines with glutamic acid and glycine to make glutathione. Glutathione levels continuously decline as we age and Glutathione deficiencies are linked to many illnesses, diseases and a compromised immune system. Replenishing glutathione levels by consuming a whey protein from grass fed cows is a great way to enhance the immune system and help the body to detoxify.

Lactoferrin, another key immune boosting component of whey protein, is a globular glycoprotein that has many potential health benefits. New research indicates that lactoferrin may have antiviral, antibacterial, antifungal and possibly anti carcinogenic effects. Lactoferrin can bind to a virus and prevent the virus from attaching to a host. This new science is crucial during the time of viral pandemics. Dr Michael Lange recommends to his patients and his talk show listeners to consume a smoothie daily using a good grass fed whey protein to enhance their immune system and help maintain muscle and strength. Dr Lange also recommends adding some raw local honey and organic virgin coconut oil with 2 organic fruits in the smoothie. During the time of viral pandemics Dr Lange feels this is one proactive step people can do that may have some potential benefits.

Grass Fed Whey Proteins are also high in specific Immunoglobulins, Beta-Lactoglobulin, Alpa-lactalbumin, Bovine Serum Albumin, Lactoperoxidase and Lysozyme all of which are responsible for a powerful immune system. Build a powerful immune system and fight against the viral invasions.

Whey Protein is high in essential and branch chain amino acids. Whey protein is especially high in a specific amino acid called leucine, the “Mack Daddy” amino acid for stimulating muscle synthesis. Whey protein is far superior to casein, soy, pea, rice, hemp, or any other protein for muscle synthesis. You can see all whey proteins are not created equal and whey protein is not just for improving muscle tone and athletic performance. Consuming a non denatured grass fed whey protein will help to enhance your immune system and strengthen your body to fight against viral attacks.  Fortifeye makes both grass fed whey concentrate and isolate.  if you have any negative reactions to dairy then you would want to use the isolate since all lactose and fat have been removed. Fortifeye Grass Fed Whey Isolate comes form grass fed American cows and Fortifeye Super Protein comes from grass fed New Zealand cows. It is amazing how the right cows can help you stay healthy!

Dr Michael Lange also makes some other recommendations to help keep the immune system charged during the viral pandemic. He recommends eating a minimum of 10 servings of organically grown fruits and vegetables that are on the Lange Survival Diet, eating fermented food daily and eating wild alaskan salmon 3 to 4 times per week. Many studies indicate that people the consume the most fruits and vegetables are less likely to be sick. Dr Lange has created Fortifeye Organic Blue Green Superfood that has 12 superfoods that are certified organic, fodmap free and gluten free. This is simple and easy to mix one scoop in a glass of water and drink daily. People with IBS can take the superfood with no digestive issues. The microbiome or gut flora is crucial for a healthy and strong immune system. Eating fermented food will enhance the digestive abilities of your stomach and intestines improving your immune system. You can take 2-3 probiotic capsules daily if you don’t want to eat the fermented food. There are many variety of probiotics you can purchase otc or you can order Fortifeye Probiotics online. Dr Lange recommends eating wild Alaskan Salmon for its omega 3, protein and Astaxanthin . Astaxanthin is  especially important do do to numerous studies indicating it is an amazing way to boost the immune system. Astaxanthin is also the most potent natural antioxidant and anti-inflammatory on the planet. If you do not want to eat that much salmon Dr Michael Lange has developed Fortifeye Focus that has 6mg of Astareal Astaxanthin plus 10mg of lutein and 2mg of zeaxanthin.

You can now clearly see that there are some things you can do  naturally to boost your immune system and promote wellness in your entire body at any age. God made a pretty good body if only the right fuel is given.  Dr Lange and Fortifeye Vitamins have taken the time and done the research to develop these fuels your body thirsts for. Eat healthy and be healthy.

Steps and Precautions to prepare for any Virus like the Coronavirus by Dr Michael Lange

Virus like the Coronavirus

Dr Michael Lange has compiled a list of things everyone should do to be pro active against any type of virus including the Coronavirus. If these recommendations are followed then it could minimize your exposure and possibly decrease the chances of contracting the Coronavirus virus or any other virus. Once the virus is contracted this may decrease the severity and symptoms due to an improved immune system. Obviously if you have an upper respiratory problem and /or fever see you PCP asap.

  1. Wash hands frequently for a minimum of 20 seconds with soap, after washing hands use the towel or tissue to turn the water off so you will not touch the faucet with clean hands. Use hand sanitizers during the day if you can’t wash your hands. The hand sanitizer should be at least 60% alcohol.
  2. Wash hair after a big event and every night before bed. The hair is a great place for the virus to hang out and then contaminate your sheets and pillows at night.
  3. Use a cloth or tissue to open doors, turn on and off lights or push elevator buttons
  4. No hand shaking, fist bump or better yet and elbow bump as a greeting.
  5. Wear glasses preferably with a wrap or protective seal around the rim to protect eyes from viral entry especially if in a crowded environment like airport, bus, airplane, concert,conference or rally.
  6. Wear a mask that covers nose and mouth to minimize viral entry into lungs and to protect others from a cough or sneeze. The mask will also help to prevent individuals from touching their face and spreading the virus to an entry zone like mouth or nose.
  7. Try not to touch any part of the face during the day including ears, mouth, nose or eyes.
  8. Stay away from largely populated areas like church, rallies, conference, concert, sporting events etc..
  9. Wipe down areas you may be in contact with during the day with Clorox, lysol, bleach ethanol/alcohol, or hydrogen peroxide.
  10. Drink plenty of spring water to keep the mucous membranes moist and to boost immune system. It is very easy to become dehydrated when you are ill from coughing, vomiting, sneezing or loose stools.
  11. Try to get a minimum of 6-8 hrs of sleep every night, a good nights rest will also boost your immune system.
  12. Vitamin D and Vitamin C both have anti viral properties so if in the warmer climate go out in the sun with minimal clothing for 30-45 minutes five days a week and you will get plenty of vitamin d, do not bathe for about eight hrs after tanning so you will not wash away the oils that are allowing absorption of the vitamin d. If you can’t get out in the sun then a minimum of 2000 iu of vitamins d3 daily or more if over weight and darkly pigmented. Vitamin c comes from citrus fruits or taking a vitamin c supplement daily. Recommended dosage is usually 500 mg twice a day however more can be taken. Too much vitamin c at one time will cause loose stools.
  13. There is some evidence that a healthy microbiome will enhance immune system and decrease chances of viral activity. Recommend eating some fermented food 3-4 times a week and taking a good probiotic at bed time.
  14. One of the best ways to strengthen the immune system and detox the body is by consuming a good non denatured grass fed whey protein isolate or concentrate daily. Make a smoothie and add some more immune boosting anti viral nutrients like Manuka honey or raw local honey, virgin organic coconut oil and some fruits like pineapple, organic blueberries, bananas or organic strawberries along with coconut milk or cashew milk. Non denatured grass fed whey isolate has some antiviral benefits.
  15. Respiratory droplets can be airborne for six feet so give plenty of room when walking around people that are coughing and sneezing. These viruses like the Coronavirus can remain live and contagious on a surface for 2 hrs and up to 9 days.
  16. Dr Michael Langes final recommendation is to get some spray colloidal silver and if you are in a relatively confined area like an airplane, bus or train spray the potential areas the virus can enter your body like the mouth, ears, nostrils and eye lashes ( close your eyes and spray to the lashes and rub into the lashes) multiple times during the journey. There is some scientific evidence that this may kill certain virus.

These 16 steps are not a cure for any virus and do not replace seeing your physician when ill. However this may reduce the chances of someone contracting the virus and may help reduce the severity once contracted.

Causes of Dry Eye

Dry eyes are generally caused by reduced amount of tears being produced to sufficiently keep the eyes wet and lubricated, causing discomfort, irritation, redness, trouble focusing, and many times light sensitivity. Dr. Michael Lange explains that some common reasons for dry eye include contact lens use – from improper use to frequent use – there is decreased oxygen supplied directly to the eyes and increased tear evaporation, aging causes decreased tear production and many arthritis related conditions can cause dry eyes.
