Natural Killer cells have been an acknowledged part of our immune system for a long time. These cells migrate through our tissues looking for other cells that have put out chemical markers stating, “I am infected with a virus” or “I am malfunctioning.” The Natural Killer cell then proceeds to destroy the infected cell, thus preserving the integrity of the body.
Gitte Jensen, at McGill University, Montreal, Quebec, demonstrated that daily consumption of a quantity of AFA algae would cause the Natural Killer cells to migrate out of the bloodstream and into the tissues where they do their work. (This study was published in JANA vol. 2 (3): 50-58.) The most pronounced results were observed in long-term AFA eaters. But the first-time eaters of AFA also experienced this benefit. Their conclusion: “Consumption of AFA leads to rapid changes in immune cell trafficking, but not direct activation of lymphocytes. Thus, AFA increases the immune surveillance without directly stimulating the immune system.”
In a subsequent test, researchers found that a peptidoglucan compound seemed to be what caused the migration of Natural Killer cells into the tissues. Where do you get such peptidoglucan compounds? Can you derive them from plants such as broccoli, spinach carrots, etc.? Can you obtain them from animals? These compounds are found only in the cell walls of bacteria, like the blue-green bacteria AFA.
So yes, do eat your broccoli, your spinach, your other vegetables, and make them the best quality; but they won’t help your immune system like consuming bacteria such as AFA “algae”.
