Description

 

The arrival of COVID-19 along with the expected arrival of seasonal influenza and pneumonia has created a significant interest in the role of the immune system to maintain health and well-being. However, individuals with impaired immune function, individuals with underlying co- morbidities or individuals who have had their immune function taxed by cancer and cancer treatments are concerned with maintaining immune competence. As researchers search for immune support products that might have value in supporting and boosting immune health, they first look at products that have demonstrated value in supporting the immune depression seen in cancer and cancer treatments such as chemotherapy.

Immune Boost is a formulation of nutrients, herbs and other natural components that can help increase immune function. With that being said, Vitamin A (as vitamin A palmitate), role within the body is to protect and boost the immune system. To clarify, it involves the formation of epithelial and mucous tissues, and promotes mucin secretion and improves the defense of the oral mucosal. When vitamin A is deficient, epithelial cells shrink, causing the respiratory tract to lose protective barrier function. Loss of barrier function reduces innate immune response and can promote respiratory tract infections.

Resveratrol

Resveratrol, also found in Immune Boost, has a well-researched level of activity in various viruses. Most important, it has demonstrated antiviral activity against Epistein-Barr virus, HSV, RSV, HIV-1, Varicella zoster virus, metapneumonia virus and other human viruses. It inhibits MERS-CoV replication in vitro.

Astragalus

Astragalus (Astragalus membranaceus) is and has been within traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) for centuries. Based on its supportive effect on immune function, often combined with other herbs & used to prevent or treat colds. The usage of astragalus in a wide range of disease states, including cancer.

Beta Glucan

Beta glucan increases immune biomarkers. Such as IL-10 production in vitro, in vivo and in human subjects. Increasing nitric oxide production in vivo has been shown in beta glucan. Similarly, increased nitric oxide has been shown to inhibit the replication of SARS- CoV.

Maitake Mushrooms

Maitake mushrooms best known for their immune- boosting effects. For instance, in studies involving cancer, maitake mushrooms supports bone marrow function and increases the protective activity of white blood cells. In preclinical testing, maitake mushrooms suppresses different viruses including influenza. Which can have similar respiratory complications to COVID-19. And Maitake mushrooms demonstrates a benefit in helping the two leading risk factors for COVID-19 infection: high blood pressure and diabetes.

Elderberry
