Immune Defence is a full spectrum immune support supplement ideal for an exhausted immune system or for anyone looking to create immune resilience.
It contains a scientific blend of the vitamins, minerals, probiotics (Lactobacillus Acidophilus) and beneficial herbs in a convenient capsule formulation. It takes the guess work out of supplementation and ensures a robust immune system.
Vitamin D – supports immune function and modulates innate and adaptive immune responses. Immune cells respond directly to vitamin D and require vitamin D for optimal function.
Vitamin C – supports immune function and helps support immune cells known as lymphocytes and phagocytes that help protect the body against infection.
Zinc – keeps the immune system in check and supports white cell immune response to viruses, bacteria and unwanted pathogens. Zinc is crucial for neutrophil and Natural Killer cell function and without zinc vital cell functions like phagocytosis, intracellular killing and cytokine production are all affected and suppresed.
Lactobacillus Acidophilus – helps to modulate the immune response and boost beneficial gut bacteria. Lactobacillus Acidophilus is one of the most studied and clinically evidenced probiotics involved in immune support and gut health.
Aged Garlic – contains Allium and helps to enhance immune system functioning and has anti-inflammatory effects. Garlic helps to support specific immune cells such as macrophages, lymphocytes and NK cells to create immune system resilience.
Turmeric – Curcumin is the active compound in turmeric. Curcumin is anti-inflammatory, anti-septic and anti-bacterial in its action. It is rendered more bioavailable and bioeffective when combined with black pepper (piperine). Turmeric also acts as a prebiotic and helps to support a healthy microbiome.
Cayenne – is an antioxidant rich spice that has been used for thousands of years for its immune boosting properties. It helps the body to neutralise harmful free radicals and has been shown to have anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties.
Reishi Mushroom – mushrooms are known to have medicinal qualities and have been used in eastern medicine for thousands of years. The beneficial molecules in mushrooms include antioxidants and molecules such as beta-glucan which help to support and modulate white cell immune function.
Ginger Root – works to improve digestive health and has anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory effect.
Olive Leaf – Olive leaves contain a natural arsenal of protective polyphenols, most notably oleuropein. Oleuropein boost immune function and offers powerful antioxidant protection. Stuides have found that Olive Leaf Extract increases the number of CD8+ and natural killer (NK) cells and can reinforce the body’s natural anti-tumour activity.*
