Did you know that with a single chiropractic adjustment, the levels of antibodies in your body significantly elevates?
When cell cultures were taken following on adjustment, the number of interleukin-2 cells increased. What are interleukin-2 cells you ask? These are vital cells that activate our white blood cells. They are our body’s natural response to infections and will target bacteria and other foreign invaders within your body. Interleukin-2 cells will also trigger the release of immunoglobulins which are another type of immune cell. Following an adjustment, the number of immunoglobulin G and immunoglobulin M rose significantly. Even two hours following the adjustment, the levels of immune cells was still high.
These cells are so vital to being and staying healthy. Without these cells, we would be in a constant state of illness. During this time of year there are many people suffering from allergies and colds. Chiropractic adjustments are a great way to boost the production of your immune cells!
