100 Veggie Capsules • 650 mg
The immune system protects people from disease caused by bacteria, viruses, and toxins. It helps remove foreign bodies and malignant cells from our system. Also, the immune system is responsible for down-regulating immune responses against external harmless triggers such as food or against the body’s own tissue. Failure to do so can result in the development of allergies or other autoimmune disorders. The immune system is not fully developed at birth, but matures over the first few years of life.

This supplement is a combination of vitamin C, herbs, and herbal extracts formulated to promote an effective immunological response.

Clinical research shows that vitamin C (ascorbic acid) is an important antioxidant. It fights free radicals in the organism which may help reduce or delay a number of illnesses including heart disease. There is also evidence that high doses of vitamin C may decrease the length of cold symptoms and possibly reduce the probability of getting one. In addition, vitamin C promotes healthy aging. The intake of vitamin C has many more functions making this vitamin one of the most important for daily consumption.

The boosting immune properties of pau d’ arco have been recognized by health professionals. Lapachol, one of the main compounds in the bark has demonstrated possible immune system enhancing capabilities in laboratory and animal models. Pau d’ arco contains various agents that probably work synergistically to influence human physiology.

Grapefruit seeds are an abundant source of flavonoids, ascorbic acid, citric acid, tocopherols, and citrus limonoids. Naringin a flavonoid found in grapefruits, provides protective compounds with strong antioxidant action, fighting the dangerous effects of free radicals that destroy cells through oxidation. They also play an important role in maintaining immune activity.

Two species of echinacea are in this supplement: angustifolia and purpurea. Echinacea is an herb native to the United States (Rocky Mountains). It is presently grown in western states as well as in Canada and Europe. Both species were used in traditional herbal remedies by the Great Plains Indian tribes. Echinacea is thought to support the immune system by activating
white blood cells. Three major groups of constituents may work together to increase the production and activity of white blood cells (lymphocytes and macrophages), including alkylamides, polyacetylenes, caffeic acid derivatives, and polysaccharides. Echinacea may also increase production of interferon, an important part of the body’s response against viruses.

Studies have verified the ability of goldenseal alkaloids to support healthy immune activity. Reviews of animal’s cell studies have demonstrated berberine’s activity against disease-causing organisms. In herbal medicine, the properties of goldenseal are described as bitter, cold, dry, and moving, which may account for hydrastine, the alkaloid that supports healthy mucous membranes.
