NADH plays an active role and has a positive, impact of the body's network of defense systems. NADH enhances the body's immune system.
NADH is directly involved in the metabolic burst as the rate of energy being released. The metabolic burst appears to be one of the initial steps leading to the cell's destruction of a foreign invaders, and harmful organisms.
We don't know if the body needs an enhanced immune system to fight neuro-degenerative diseases. But isn't it nice to know that increasing the inter-cellular pool of NADH enhances the immune system, just in case the body needs it.
The definition of the Immune system
An immune system response is based on the activities of special white blood cells. They are:
Macrophages are responsible for the direct elimination of foreign bodies by engulfing and absorbing the waste material.of harmful micro-organisms. The engulfing and absorbing of foreign invaders is called the phagocytic process. Macrophages also initiate a series of events resulting in antibody production.
A direct relationship exists between the white cells going to work (phagocytosis) and the activation of the immune system. The first step leading to phagocytosis is disturbing the cell's membrane by a bacterium or foreign matter. This results in a marked increase in metabolic activity. The oxygen consumption of this cell being invaded, increases dramatically. Most of the oxygen is converted to hydrogen peroxide or superoxide. This phenomenon is known as the metabolic burst. It appears to be the initial step leading to the destruction of the invader. NADH is directly involved in the metabolic burst or the rate of energy being released.
