Hi, Dr. Meredith Warner here -
These days, many of us aren’t getting all the nutrients, vitamins, and minerals we need from our diets. This can lead to a host of problems - weight gain, fatigue, chronic inflammation, and more - but today, I’d like to talk about how nutritional deficiencies can affect your immune function.
I decided to develop my new Herbal Immunity Defense multivitamin to fill these nutritional gaps. This unique supplement is an immune-boosting powerhouse designed to optimize and restore vital immune function - and help you build a foundation for optimal health.
Because most of us do not have private chefs or the time needed to eat all the vegetables and fruits that would give us our best chance of a sound immune system, I have considered supplementation to be one of the best ways to do so. Obtaining all nutrition through diet alone would be fantastic and is the usual recommendation. But most of us live a hectic life in the real world. This is where supplementation with essential and even non-essential nutrients becomes necessary.
DESIGNED TO DELIVER THESE BENEFITS
My Herbal Immunity Defense multivitamin is designed to deliver immune support in every aspect - through directly boosting white blood cell count, improving nutrition, and reducing overall bodily stress. Each ingredient was handpicked to help revitalize and restore your body’s natural immune function so that you can fight off illness with ease.
This natural + effective supplement supports your healthy immune system by:
- Promoting healthy antioxidant activity
- Providing a high potency source of essential nutrients that support the white blood cells
- Helping to reduce oxidative stress throughout the body
- Improving the production and communication of cytokines and chemokines
- Helping to balance right inflammation and reduce lousy inflammation
PLANT-BASED INGREDIENTS FOR FULL-BODY SUPPORT
The elderberry plant’s berries and flowers are high-potency sources of vitamins (especially Vitamin C) and antioxidants. In addition to providing immune system support, these nutrients may help tame inflammation, reduce stress, and protect your heart as well. When your body isn’t fighting inflammation and oxidative stress, it has more energy to protect itself from harmful invaders like seasonal colds.
Echinacea is a North American flower in the sunflower family. This potent botanical supports the immune system by supporting the regular activity of white blood and natural killer (NK) cells and increasing the overall number of useful white blood cells. These cells are essential in fighting off illness.
Olive Leaf Extract
This extract has been shown to have high antiviral and antimicrobial properties. This means that it can interfere with bacteria and viruses’ ability to replicate, spread, and cause infection. This ingredient helps to control viral load, and this allows your immune system a better chance.
You probably have garlic in your spice cabinet - but did you know about its immunity-building properties? It has been used for its antibacterial, antifungal, and antiseptic properties for hundreds of years.
Because of these properties, like Olive Leaf Extract, Garlic can help the body destroy and/or inhibit viruses and other microorganisms before illness sets in.
This plant is used as an "adaptogen" - it increases your body’s resistance to disease and stress, boosts energy, and increases endurance. Essentially, adaptogens are a natural substance that helps the body adapt to stress and exert a “stabilizing” effect on bodily processes - promoting balance. This herb stimulates the immune system to work harder and more effectively to fight off an illness at the onset of infection.
Pine Bark Extract
Pine Bark Extract is a potent source of Vitamin C and contains an array of beneficial phytochemicals highly antioxidant. Suppose you are out of shape, exposed to pollution, or undergo stress regularly. In that case, your body produces an excess of free radical compounds that can cause cellular damage throughout your body - Such free radicals can destroy a cell’s wall or membrane, for example. By damaging white blood cells, such compounds can weaken your immune response. This phenomenon is known as “oxidative stress,” and over time, it can wreak havoc on every one of your body’s processes. Pine Bark Extract’s high antioxidant content helps remove this stress naturally, giving your immune system a fighting chance.
