Nagalase and nutritional tests for the immune system.

Recently is was discovered that the protein in blood that binds vitamin D(Vitamin D binding protein or Gc globulin) also is important for the immune system. It is supposed to have a side chain of 3 sugars. T and B cells take away each one sugar. The remaining substance with only one sugar remaining is called Gc-MAF(Macrophage Activating Factor) needed for the immune system to attack cancer cells, viruses etc.Cancer cells and some viruses produce an enzyme called nagalase that splits off directly all the 3 sugars from the Vitamin D binding protein. The consequence is an deactivated immune system.  Nagalase seems to be a good marker to follow the progress of a cancer patient during/after treatment. Also for some other diseases related to the immune system.This test in blood is a valuable addition in cancer treatment besides the analysis of the status of  essential nutrients in the blood/plasma/serum and in the 24-hour urine.A deficiency of one of the more then 40 essential nutrients may cause already a diminished activity of the immune system. A healthy life is a life with a minimal interference of colds, flu and other simple infections many people suffer each year several times. To much of a certain nutrient may also cause a reduced immune system.It is extremely important for optimal health to reduce these infections to less then once per year. At the same time many of these nutrients are important to prevent cancer also after treatment and have been used in the (additional) treatment of cancer.
