Immune Health Support is a comprehensive formula that provides essential vitamins and minerals for general nutritional support, and a generous supply of specialty agents specifically implicated in immune wellness. The synergistic combination of ingredients in Immune Health Support helps provide an ideal environment for optimal immune function.
There are many factors that can challenge a healthy immune system including, stress, exposure to toxic compounds, allergies, bacteria, viruses, irregular sleeping patterns and a poor diet. The immune system is very complicated and is comprised of many highly specialized immune cells, each of which play various roles in maintaining and regulating normal, healthy immune function. Vitamins, such as vitamin C, A B-6, B12 and folic acid and minerals like zinc play an essential role in the immune response and the health of the thymus gland where T lymphocytes mature and become active. Echinacea helps “activate” the immune system and stimulate certain immune cells that are critical to maintaining overall health. It also helps keep the respiratory system healthy when challenged, particularly during winter months. The mushrooms maitake, shiitake, and reishi are rich in polysaccharide compounds known as beta-glucans, which have been shown to stimulate important immune cells. Quercetin is a strong antioxidant and helps provide support for healthy levels of histamine; a chemical involved in cold and allergy-related symptoms. The active compound in goldenseal, berberine, has shown antibiotic and antifungal properties and the sulphur compounds found in garlic have been researched for their immune-supporting properties. Ligustrum is used in traditional Chinese medicine and shown to help support immune function in immune-compromised subjects.
