What is in Immune Boost 

 

Propolis

Propolis has been used for thousands of years by ancient Egyptians, Greeks and Romans for its multiple medicinal properties and remarkable safety profile. Assyrians put it on wounds and tumours to fight infection and help the healing process. Egyptians used it to embalm mummies. Greeks used it to treat abscesses.

Science only recently started to rediscover its powerful healing potential.

Researchers have identified more than 300 compounds in propolis. The majority of these compounds are forms of polyphenols. Polyphenols are antioxidants that fight disease and damage in the body. 

In modern history propolis is known for it’s antibacterial, antiviral, antifungal, and anti-inflammatory properties

Olive Leaf

In the early 1900’s, a bitter compound from the leaf of olive trees was discovered, it was called oleuropein. It was determined to be one of the plant’s most powerful disease fighting compounds. 

Olive Leaf has traditionally been used for: Natural antibiotic, Anti-fungal, Anti-viral, Immune booster, Relief from the common cold, and MANY more.

In 1962 researchers found that oleuropein could lower blood pressure and increase blood flow in the coronary arteries, relieve arrhythmias, and prevent intestinal muscle spasms.

In the late 1960s, researchers showed that elenolic acid, another powerful compound found in the olive leaf, could kill many kinds of viruses, bacteria and parasitic protozoans.

Olive Leaf is also effective against antibiotic-resistant bacterial strains, yeast strains and other fungi that contribute to chronic fatigue syndrome.

A 1993 study reported that olive leaf extract treatment provided relief from Herpesvirus symptoms.

A 1994 experiment found that oleuropein inhibited the oxidation of low-density lipoproteins.

According to Dr. Morton Walker (Author of more than 60 books and over 1800 clinical papers) “there is not a known pathogen that olive leaf is not effective against”

 

Pelargonium sidoides 

Pelargonium sidoides has traditionally been used for: Acute bronchitis, headache, fever, fatigue, cough, chest pain while coughing, sputum in the lungs, 

Rhonchi (coarse rattling sound associated with mucus in the airway, similar to wheezing and crackles) and nasal dripping.

Studies have found that up to 60% of patients suffering from acute bronchitis fully resolve their symptoms within a week of Pelargonium sidoides supplementation.

Evidence suggests Pelargonium sidoides can reduce the duration of the common cold, while treating symptoms. 

It may also provide benefits for people suffering from lung disorders.

Pelargonium sidoides has anti-infective properties.

Helps fight viruses and stimulates the immune system to hunt down invaders.

Pelargonium sidoides may also reduce the replication of the herpes simplex virus

 

Vitamin C

One of the most well known supplements must be Vitamin C

Vitamin C is a powerful micronutrient and crucial part of the diet. From reversing skin ageing to reducing cholesterol levels, studies have found that vitamin C benefits many aspects of health, from the inside out.

Getting enough may help ward off illness and infection, enhance iron absorption, and even reduce the risk of painful conditions like gout. Vitamin C has also been shown to be effective in supporting the mind against depression.

Vitamin C acts as a natural antioxidant in the body, preventing the buildup of free radicals to protect your body against disease.

One of the most well-known benefits of vitamin C is its ability to improve immune health. In fact, loading up on vitamin C foods is often used as a first line of defence during cold and flu season.

Studies have repeatedly confirmed the immune-boosting benefits of vitamin C. A review published in the Annals of Nutrition & Metabolism showed that getting enough vitamin C may help reduce symptoms and shorten the duration of respiratory tract infections, such as the common cold. 

Vitamin C may also help decrease the incidence of other conditions like pneumonia and diarrhoea as well.

 

Vitamin D3

Also known as the “sunshine vitamin”, Vitamin D is an essential fat-soluble vitamin. 

It can either be obtained in the diet, through food and dietary supplements, or synthesised in the skin upon exposure to sunlight.

Vitamin D plays a role in calcium and phosphorus balance important in bone health, and nerve and muscle activity.

It also regulates blood pressure, cardiovascular disease, immune function, cell production, and insulin secretion.

It plays a potential role in prevention and therapy of cancer and chronic conditions such as autoimmune disorders, cardiovascular disease, and infections.

Supplementation with this vitamin has been shown to improve muscle strength, balance, and physical performance.

Studies indicate that this vitamin is important for brain development and its deficiency is associated with a wide range of psychiatric and neurological diseases.

It may protect brain cells through detoxification pathways. Furthermore, it also helps synthesis of proteins necessary for survival of brain cells in ageing and neurological diseases.

Epidemiological studies show that low concentrations of vitamin D are associated with: impairments in cognitive functions such as memory and orientation, diagnosis of dementia and Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, higher rates of psychotic experiences and schizophrenia, depressive symptoms, and low mood.

Studies have shown potent effects of vitamin D on both innate and adaptive immunity.

It has the potential to influence a wide range of immune disorders, particularly infectious and autoimmune diseases.

Vitamin D may be beneficial for inflammatory bowel disease and celiac disease
