    Clinically Research Botanicals to Support Immune health

    Astragalus:  Pharmacological research indicates that Astragalus membranaceus extract was associated with a significant age-reversal effect in the immune system.  Research showed Astragalus membranaceus extract to increase telomerase activity, has antioxidant properties, support healthy inflammatory response and immunoregulatory.

    Benefits of Astragalus:

    • Provides comprehensive support for aging immune system*
    • Inhibits immune senescence by supporting an already-healthy ratio of naïve-to-memory T cells*
    • Promotes youthful immune response by stimulating immune cell development & activity*
    • Encourages the body’s first line of defense by promoting natural killer (NK) cell response*

    Andrographis:  Andrographis is a powerful antioxidant that naturally encourage your body’s production of antioxidant enzymes such as superoxide dismutase, catalase, and glutathione. It has traditionally been used in Indian and Chinese herbal medicine to support seasonal immune health.  There are currently 33 published research of randomized controlled trials (7175 patients) using Andrographis, showing it’s effectiveness in supporting the body’s overall immune response to help defend the body in the face of cold-weather challenges.  Animal studies suggest that Andrographis paniculata enhanced the ability of NK cells and improve immune response to vaccines.  In randomized controlled human trials, the patented ParActin® significantly decreased levels of inflammatory markers and cytokines.

    Benefits of Andrographis:

    • Promotes Healthy Immune Response*
    • Inhibits Inflammation to Support Healthy Respiratory Function*
    • Supports Nose, Throat, & Respiratory Health*
    • Supports Seasonal Immune Health*
    • Encourages Timely Immune Cell Response*
    • Enhance Antioxidant Defense and Helps Inhibit Oxidative Stress*

    Echinacea: Echinacea has been used successfully for hundreds of years by the Native Americans to support immune health.  Today, echinacea represents one of the most popular herbs used for seasonal immune health in both European and American markets.  Clinical evidence shows that echinacea has beneficial effects on increases natural killer (NK) cells and total white blood cell count.  A UK study found it could reduce the combined number and duration of cold episodes by an average of 26%.

    Benefits of Echinacea

    • Supports Immune System Health*
    • Across the board protection & support for a strong, healthy recovery*
    • Encourages the body’s first line of defense by promoting natural killer (NK) cell response*

    Elderberry:  have long been used in Europe and North America to support immune function, promote health and vitality.  In a randomized, double-blind placebo-controlled clinical trial of 312 economy class passengers travelling internationally, supplementation of elderberry supplement encourages timely immune cell response and supports the body to maintain a strong defense during stressful intercontinental air travel.  In another randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study during the influenza season of 1999 – 2000 in Norway, 60 volunteers received 15 ml of elderberry or placebo syrup four times a day for 5 days. Supplementation of elderberry help support immune function during seasonal immune challenges.

    Benefits of Elderberry:

    • Comprehensive Immune Support*
    • Supports Nose, Throat, & Respiratory Health*
    • Helps Protects Against Seasonal Immune Challenges*
    • Provides Healthy Antioxidant Level*
    • Free Radical Scavenger*
    • Optimal defense during stress, travel & seasonal changes*
