What is doTERRA On Guard?
It's primary benefits are to help protect against environmental threats and support healthy immune function, however there is so much more it can do!
In a recent study
A recent study by doTERRA scientists evaluated the effects of doTERRA On Guard blend on human cells.
Four different white blood cell co-cultures and one skin cell co-culture were exposed to the blend and subsequent changes in cellular activity were measured using biomarker analysis.
A total of 9 different biomarkers were observed to be down regulated in the different white blood cell co-cultures. Biomarkers in the skin cell co-culture were also robustly affected. Levels of inflammation-related markers decreased after exposure to doTERRA On Guard blend. Cell proliferation also decreased significantly. RNA micro array analysis revealed that gene expression in these cells was altered, with the top four matched signaling pathways being related to inflammation and cell cycle control.
These results suggest that doTERRA On Guard regulates many important pathways relevant to healthy inflammatory response, wound healing, cellular health, and immune response.
