Prevent colds and flu by fumigating your lungs

February 21, 2020

Your lungs are a front line. The air we breathe
is laced with potentially dangerous bugs and chemicals, so the lungs need to be equipped
to handle these intruders. A veritable army of immune cells battle the bugs that try to
gate crash the body, via the respiratory system. But, the respiratory epithelium themselves
do battle with their own chemical whizardry. These chemicals are the human version of antibiotics
– designed to crush foreigners. The weapons are natural antimicrobial peptides or AMPs
for short. In the presence of unsavoury characters, which pose a threat to lung security, vitamin
D programmes lung epithelial cells, to switch on the production of AMPs. Join us for this
episode of Better Body Chemistry TV, to discover how to fumigate your lungs this winter. Better
Body Chemistry TV is brought to you by Dr Sandy – a scientist turned gremlin buster,
HELPING YOU, battle sugar gremlins, heffa-lumps & other health horribles, through BETTER BODY
CHEMISTRY. Remember, small things can make a big difference to your health. Now, the
story begins far away from the lungs………. The skin production line, powered by the sun,
converts cholesterol to vitamin D and sends it to the liver. The liver, using the enzyme
25-hydroxylase, then processes this vitamin D, along with vitamin D obtained from the
diet, so that it can be “stored” by the body. The stored version is then shipped to
the kidney as needed, for final processing into an activated form, which is circulated
in the bloodstream. This vitamin D helps build bones and runs the calcium economy of the
body. But the lungs need even more vitamin D, to fire up the defence systems to avoid
respiratory tract infections, so lung epithelial cells to activate their own supply of active
vitamin D. Inside the lungs, the Vitamin D activates vitamin D switches on two genes.
The first is cathelicidin (an AMP) which can kill bacteria by poking holes in their outer
layer. The cathelicidin also stimulates the lung epithelial cells, encouraging them to
divide so that they can recover quickly from any damage caused by these invading organisms.
The second gene turned on by the vitamin D produces a protein called CD14, which helps
the immune cells focus their attention on foreign invaders, so they kick up their performance
a notch and exterminate the problem. No vitamin D no power. Vitamin D is the sunshine vitamin
because production depends on UV light powering the chemical reaction, that converts cholesterol
in the skin to vitamin D. Lots of people are running low on vitamin D all the time, because
they avoid the sun like the plague. But even if you’re not anti-sun per se, there often
is not enough of it around during winter, which is when you’re most likely to catch
some or other respiratory bug. Surprise, surprise ! If you want to create BETTER BODY CHEMISTRY,
you need to fumigate your lungs. Tap into a little lizard wisdom and do a bit of sun
tanning otherwise swallow a supplement, but make sure your body is loaded up with vitamin
D so your body is able zap those nasty “flu” bugs before they do too much damage. Interested
