In times of colds and flues, and especially in times of swine flu virus which is under discussion around the world, Ecomer can play an even more important role.
The swine flu is still in the beginning of a pandemic spread and the amount of vaccine that will be available is limited.
The vaccine may also be useless if the virus changes into a new subtype. Therefore Ecomer can play a very important role and enable people to protect themselves naturally.
Flu vaccination may help to avoid the dreaded swine flu. Such inoculation leads to the development of specific antibodies targeting the virus particles invading the body.
However, it takes a certain time for the immune system in the body to develop this acquired immune defence.
Furthermore the swine flu virus may change into a new subtype with an antigenic shift. Such a rare but not unrealistic incident could thwart all vaccination efforts.
Shark liver oil has for centuries been used around the world as a nutritional supplement for prophylaxis and treatment of minor infections, especially colds and flu. Shark liver oil has been subjected to extensive studies. The primary active principle for boosting the immune system has been identified as alkylglycerols.
This group of compounds is present in high concentrations in shark liver oil. Surprisingly mother’s milk
also contains alkylglycerols. It is likely that nursing provides the infant with natural protection and
enhancement of its immature immune defence against infection.
Current situation in the
Pandemic (H1N1) 2009 in the African Region: Update 46
As of September 23, 2009, 24 countries have officially reported 8.298 laboratory confirmed human cases of pandemic (H1N1) 2009 including 41 deaths. (South Africa: 7606 total / 31 deaths).
Other clinical investigators have concluded that “shark liver oil supplementation in high doses is beneficial in bacterial, viral and fungal infections”, “shark liver oil has been found to be useful in treatment of conditions resulted from inadequate immune response”, and “alkylglycerols may be used … as an immune booster in infectious disease”.
The original shark liver oil preparation from Sweden is Ecomer® produced by Natumin Pharma AB. This preparation was introduced in 1986 and is available in many countries around the world. The product has an excellent tolerability.
The swine flu is in the beginning of a pandemic spread. The amount of vaccine that will be available is limited. The vaccine may be useless if the virus changes its antigenic properties.
