If you’ve answered yes to 1 or more of the above questions, your immune system may be in need of a boost.
Our Signature Immune-Boosting IV Infusion Formula contains evidenced-based nutrients that support a healthy immune response and include the following:
Vitamin C: Vitamin C is best known for helping us to prevent respiratory infections and shortening the duration when we do get one. It contributes to immune defense by supporting various cellular functions of both the innate (non-specific and immediate response – our first line of immune defense) and adaptive (specific and delayed response – our second line of immune defense) immune system. Vitamin C also protects the epithelium barrier and helps to prevent pathogens from entering our bodies.
Zinc: Zinc is vitally essential for a healthy immune system, as it is involved in immune cell development and communication and plays an important role in the inflammatory response. Zinc is a component of over 300 enzymatic reactions including those that help defend your body against pathogens, therefore, a zinc deficiency can significantly impair the immune system’s ability to function optimally, resulting in an increased risk of infection and disease.
Selenium: Selenium plays a crucial role in immune health by lowering oxidative stress in your body, which reduces inflammation thereby enhancing immunity. In addition, Selenium helps to regulate your thyroid gland which helps to keep your metabolism and immune system functioning efficiently. In addition, as mentioned above, Selenium helps to regenerate glutathione, one of our body’s most important antioxidant needed for immune health.
Magnesium: Magnesium, specifically magnesium chloride, is shown to not just support the body’s immune system, but strengthen it and help stimulate and increase efficiency in combating illness and disease. Without magnesium, studies have found your body’s natural immune responses can be negatively impacted and that having sufficient amounts of magnesium in your system can boost natural immune responses and have some involvement in reducing inflammation. Magnesium has also been shown to play a role in oxidative stress which can have a large negative impact on your immune system if not properly managed.
Glutathione: In addition to glutathione’s ability to recycle other important immune-boosting antioxidants, glutathione has several other important immune-boosting roles which include the following: Healthy growth and activity of immune cells depends on the availability of glutathione as it enhances their activity and also functions as an antioxidant within them. Research shows glutathione-enhanced natural killer (NK) and T cells (your body’s front-line infection fighters) are able to produce more infection fighting substances, controlling both bacterial and viral infections. Glutathione is essential for innate and adaptive immune functions and decreased levels are associated with an increased susceptibility to infection.
Amino Acids: Amino acids play a key role in regulating the body’s immune response. Most components of the immune system defense arsenal are proteins, so it’s only logical that in order to have an immune system that operates at peak capacity, the building blocks for these proteins, amino acids, must be in plentiful supply. There is a strong link between protein intake and immunocompetence, or the ability to fight off infection and disease.
