⚪️⚪️⚪️Neutrophil Nutrition ⚪️⚪️⚪️
A neutrophil is a granulocyte (a type of white blood cell) that is designed to fight off infections and diseases. Neutrophils are the most abundant type of white blood cell in the body, about 70%! These cells play an important role in the immune system. When a disease-causing microorganism enters the body, neutrophils are the first to attack. One of the ways to keep your neutrophils healthy is by giving them zinc, provided by the steak in this recipe. The zinc is not only needed to make white blood cells but also increases the aggressiveness of the white blood cells fighting infections. If you don't eat meat, toasted wheat germ is just as high in zinc as steak is.
🍄🍄🍄Another immune boost from this recipe is the Mushrooms. It is well-established that mushrooms are awesome at immune modulation and affect stem cells, lymphocytes, macrophages, T cells, dendritic cells (DCs), and natural killer (NK) cells. Extensive research over the last 40 years has shown that mushrooms slow growth of tumors, regulate tumor genes, and increase malignant cancer cell death
