The prognosis for lupus sufferers has greatly improved over the past decades. In the 1950s, few patients lived more than five years, but today, life span is greatly expanded. There has not, however, been a corresponding success until very recently in developing new treatments. Most of the drugs traditionally used to treat lupus have serious side effects. Since quality of life is as important as the number of years one lives, alternative treatments are worthy of exploration.
One such alternative treatment is Natur-Leaf®. Natur-Leaf® is a nutritional supplement that has been shown to support the immune system and help it modulate itself. The primary ingredients are plant fats (sterols and sterolins) that provide "building block" nutrients for the immune system.
One of the most important benefits of Natur-Leaf® is that it is a natural supplement with no reported side effects. This means that it will not adversely interact with any medication you may be taking. The recommended dosage for a relatively healthy person is two capsules per day. However, if you suffer from lupus and want to receive the full therapeutic benefits of Natur-Leaf®, three to six capsules per day--for at least 12 weeks--may be more appropriate for your condition.
Not everyone has the time--or inclination--to eat the proper number of servings of fruits and vegetables. Even if you regulate your diet carefully, you cannot receive the necessary amount of sterols and sterolins from food, because the cooking process often destroys them and they are difficult to absorb even under ideal circumstances. Natur-Leaf®, however, contains approximately 40 mg of sterols and sterolins per capsule. What sets Natur-Leaf® apart is its high sterols to sterolins ratio, 6:1, which is the natural ratio found in nature.
