Immune System Booster - 2 fl. oz.

People suffer from one billion colds and flu annually. Your immune system is your first and most important line of defense, and only a strong immune system can effectively fight the viruses that cause colds and flu. Supplementing with suitable nutrients can assist with warding off potential problems by enhancing immune defense mechanisms. Ultra Immune contains a combination of two ingredients that have been clinically shown to boost immune function, augmenting the body's natural ability to fight off invaders.

This physician's grade formula contains Echinacea, one of the oldest studied herbs in the world, which has been shown to increase the activity of immune system cells so they can more rapidly eliminate invading organisms and viruses. In addition, after hundreds of years of use, Echinacea has had no history of side-effects or toxicity. The purple cornflower is a genuinely a wonderful contribution to herbal medicine. Usnea is another herbal immune system tonic in this formula that can be utilized in critical situations in addition to long term immune enhancement and general prevention. It has no side effects or contraindications, and is safe for children. It is a great addition to Echinacea as it more specific for strep and staph infections than Echinacea, and its antibiotic assets are most exclusive to the respiratory and urinary systems.

To be pro-active at maintaining our health, it is important to take steps to nourish our immune system, so ultimately you can do something to ward off colds, flu and viruses. Boosting immunity and keeping your body in balance is the key, and Ultra Immune is the powerful herbal option to help you achieve that.

How Does Echinacea Work?: Echinacea is an immunostimulant, a substance that boosts the body's immune system. Unlike traditional antibiotics that kill bacteria directly, Echinacea works indirectly, killing the germ by strengthening your immune system. While all the research on Echinacea is not in yet, there is some evidence that it stimulates the body to produce more infection-fighting white blood cells, such as T-lymphocytes and killer white blood cells. Echinacea may also stimulate the release of Interferons, one of the body's most potent infection-fighting weapons. Besides helping the body produce more infection-fighting cells, Echinacea helps these cells to produce more germ-eating cells, called macrophages, and it helps these cells eat the germs more voraciously, a process called phagocytosis. Echinacea also prevents bacteria from secreting an enzyme called hyaluronidase, which enables them to break through protective membranes, such as the lining of the intestines and respiratory tract, and invade tissues. Echinacea also seems to search out and destroy some viruses, such as the common cold and flu viruses.
Is There Proof That Echinacea Works?: Most of the research on Echinacea has been done in Germany. Germany and Europe in general are far ahead of the United States in the scientific study of over-the-counter herbal medicines. Echinacea has been studied in Germany using double blind, placebo-controlled studies, and the gold standard for scientific research on drugs. What this means is that one group receives the real herbal remedy and the other group, which is the control group, gets a look-alike dummy medicine. Neither the researcher nor the research subjects know who has gotten which one until data collection is completed and the data is analyzed. This kind of research is especially important and necessary in the study of herbal medicine to correct for the well-known placebo effect in which even a dummy pill can produce healing effects because of the power of suggestion. A double blind, placebo-controlled study has shown that Echinacea users experienced less frequent and less severe virus infections (colds and flus) by one-third to one-half compared to the group that took dummy pills (which interestingly also reported a decrease in severity of flu symptoms).

It would depend on your individual immune system and the medical reason you want to take it. For example, there are conditions in which you wouldn't want to boost up your immune system, such as illnesses presumably caused by an overactive immune system such as autoimmune diseases.

When taking Ultra Immune, consider the following:

  • When you feel a cold coming on or have been exposed to a contagious virus, take Ultra Immune for two weeks, and then stop.

  • When you are under stress because of life changes, pressures at work or home, travel, or any other situation that affects your emotional or physical health, take Ultra Immune for a couple of weeks.

  • When entering a situation that challenges the immune system, such as the beginning of school in September, entering a new daycare situation, or exposure to any other new group of people that increases your contact with new germs, take Ultra Immune for two weeks.
