This combination of herbs, potent mushroom extracts, astralagus, echinacea and other botanical compounds like green tea extract work together to provide antiviral and antibacterial support in addition to helping the body maintain natural killer cell activity. It also helps balance the release of cytokines, which are special proteins released by immune cells when a normal immune system response takes place. They help regulate the growth and reaction of certain cell populations to immune disruptors. Fortifying this natural process will continue to be important during this coronavirus situation. Keeping our immune systems in tip top shape will help us prevent the spreading of this infection.
We want to point out a few of its fascinating ingredients:
Astralagus is an antiviral herb that can support people with a weakened or compromised immune system. It works to help strengthen and regulate the immune system, as well as provide energy and stamina, partially by its ability to assist the adrenal glands. It also acts as an antioxidant and buffers cells against damage. Known by its other name which translates to “yellow senior,” this herb has been used in traditional Chinese medicine for more than 2000 years. Studies on astralagus support the idea that it can help people live longer! Some evidence through clinical trials shows that this herb may increase the body’s production of white blood cells, and animal research has shown that the root has killed bacteria and viruses in mice with infections. This wonder herb can also provide the body with more energy, which makes you feel stronger overall. Interestingly, some of its side benefits may also support the body when fighting off an infection. It can promote deeper, more restful sleep, and may help reduce stress–both of which are important when dealing with the anxiety surrounding coronavirus.
Edible mushrooms like cordyceps, shiitake, maitake and reishi increase the amount of T-helper cells, which protect the body against pathogens. They also boost natural killer cell function and increase lymphocyte production, both of which help deactivate viruses, bacteria and other pathogens. The maitake mushroom boosts the immune system and contains antibiotic and anti-inflammatory benefits while also encouraging the lymph system and T cells to work more effectively. This is important because they may be able to dismantle viruses. Reishi is known as the “mushroom of immortality,” since it
is home to a polysaccharide (beta-D-glucan) which has powerful immune-stimulating properties.
Studies on echinacea extracts show that it may increase the production of white blood cells, which fight infections like coronavirus. Although research on this herb is mixed, it may help to reduce the duration of an illness or cold. Some research has found that it could lower a person’s risk for catching a cold by up to 35% by increasing natural killer cells responsive ability and by preventing some viral proteins from their ability to take hold in the body.
Recommended Use: As a dietary supplement, take four capsules per day with meals, or as directed by your health care practitioner.
