The entire inside of the body (along the mouth, nose, sinuses, lungs, gut, and urinary/reproductive tract) is lined by a thin membrane called the mucosa. It forms the barrier between the bloodstream and everything we inhale and ingest from the outside world. These mucosal barriers play an integral role in health. They provide structural defense, host the microbiome, and house 80% of the body’s immune cells.
90,000 new chemicals have been introduced into public use since the 1970's - only 1% have ever been tested for safety.
The food we eat has changed more in the last 50 years than it did in the previous 10,000 years.
In the 1960's, 1.6% of children suffered from a chronic health issue. Today, 54% do.
The modern environment drives modern health issues.
A healthy mucosal barrier is one that is in balance—allowing the body to absorb essential nutrients while also keeping out harmful substances from everything we breathe, eat, and drink.
The gut mucosal barrier is comprised of 4 layers:
Gut Cell Barrier, Mucous Layer, Microbiome, and Immune Cells and Antibodies.
But modern living impairs immunity at the mucosa. Each day, our bodies are bombarded by a host of disruptive things that weaken this line of defense. Air pollutants, pesticides in the food and water supply, medications, stress hormones, refined carbohydrates, processed food, and micronutrient deficiencies, among other factors, disrupt the architecture and make the barrier more penetrable. This makes it easier for harmful particles to get inside, including viruses, bacteria, molds, allergens, and environmental toxins.
This layer of cells should be tightly sealed and create a wall that allows your body to absorb healthy nutrients, while keeping harmful particles out. ARMRA’s peptides strengthen this barrier for a high-integrity gut wall.
Think of this as the scaffolding that the microbiome can stick to and live on. ARMRA Colostrum™ supports this layer for a thick matrix to support optimal microbiome health.
The population of microorganisms in the gut help us break down food, produce and regulate hormones and brain chemicals, and impact immune, brain, gut, hormonal, and metabolic health.
Patrolling this wall are immune cells and antibodies that can bind and intercept harmful particles for an additional layer of protection.
Not only can these exposures make us ill, they can also activate the immune system inappropriately and trigger inflammation. This leads to a host of modern health issues such as: autoimmune conditions, allergies, weight gain, bloating, digestive issues, mental fog, sleep disturbances, depression and anxiety —in fact, over 1,000 research publications make this link.
Despite doing our best, it is impossible to control all of the exposures from our everyday modern environment. And without healthy immune barriers, we are more vulnerable to threats that negatively impact our health and performance.
Modern living damages the mucosal barrier. ARMRA Colostrum™ builds it back.
ARMRA™ Colostrum's proprietary concentrate of functional bioactive nutrients from bovine colostrum build back a better barrier and support a healthy microbiome throughout the body to naturally enhance mucosal immunity and whole body health.
