It's that time of year again and people are out looking for that perfect tree to cram into their house, apartment or wherever one considers home. Shoppers look for decorations hoping to make that plain old boring tree something spectacular. As you drive around from store to store and spend money on gas, parking, time and aggravation; you probably never wonder what this is doing to your health. Real trees as opposed to artificial ones may need water or a preservative to keep them around longer as this depends on when you bought the tree. Then you begin to wonder, did I bring my water or did I take my daily dose of meds before going out to do all of this? Yes, the holidays is about giving, but I suppose you should give a little thought as to consider yourself, so that you will be around to do the whole darn thing for next year. Pine cones or pine cone extract are known to have health benefits, especially for immune cells. Pine cones or pine cone extract can also assist people who suffer from asthma or allergies and auto-immune diseases. The reason for this is because pine cones and or the extract increases dendritic immune cell function. Dendritic cells are known to produce antigens to cells in efforts to facilitate immune responses to viruses and bacteria. Dendritic cells are the cells that communicate to the rest of the immune system that a disease or pathogen is present. Without dendritic cells the immune system is unable to know that a virus is inside the body. Since pine cones increase dendritic cell function, this means that they are able to inhibit virus and pathogen production. Giving can be simple, thoughtful and most of all healthy and of couse consult with your physician or herbalist if you are taking other medications. Pine cone extract- something for the ages and many holidays to come!
