IgA and Compassion
Would you like to be healthier, especially during the flu season? Studies have shown that levels of IgA (one of the body's immune globulins found in large numnbers in the saliva) are boosted when you experience a sense of compassion and caring. Higher IgA levels help you be more resistant to infections. Feeling cared for and loved, and exhibiting that toward others, may play a greater role in your health and longevity than even factors such as blood pressure and cholesterol. Experience compassion for yourself and others--today. Live healthier!
