PRPs are tiny information carrying proteins with amazing adaptability. In times of intense physical stress, they help enhance immune activity by promoting the production of cytokines. In the opposite situation, when a healthy immune system reacts to environmental factors through cytokine production, PRPs send signals via specific cell receptor sites to decrease the production of cytokines in order to balance the immune system.
PRPs help regulate the thymus gland (the body’s central command for the immune system), helping stimulate an underactive immune system or helping down-regulate an overactive immune system. They inhibit the overproduction of lymphocytes and T-cells and may help reduce minor symptoms related to allergies, tenderness and swelling.
