Supplement Support: Immunity
The cold and flu season is a great time to ramp up your daily immune support. IPC carries a variety of supplements designed specifically to aid in preventing and shortening the effects of respiratory infections. Rather than pick up the typical over-the-counter options that just deal with effects, consider options to get ahead of the illness.
A powerful combination might include Ester C, EHB and Bio-Vegetarian to take on your symptoms.
EHB is a combination herbal supplement in pill form that supports the immune system and is best taken at the first signs of respiratory problems, colds or flu. Take 2 capsules- 3 times daily. The vitamins, minerals and botanicals in this pill increase white blood cell activity against tumor cells, and have powerful free radical scavengers. Some of the components in EHB have been found to sooth irritated mucus membranes aiding the eyes, ears, nose and throat.
Ester–C®is a natural, non–acidic water–soluble form of vitamin C that is distinguished by its unique chemical composition and biological activity. It is manufactured in an exclusive, water–based process that results in a mixture of naturally occurring vitamin C metabolites, including ascorbate, dehydroascorbate, and threonate. The bioflavonoids quercetin, rutin and pomegranate extract are powerful free radical scavengers that complement the roles of vitamin C. We recommend 1,000mg-2,000mg daily at the onset of symptoms.
Bio Vegetarian contains powerful mix of vitamins and herbs that attack your symptoms from numerous sides. The Vitamin A protects cells from damage, while the Vitamin C boosts your immune system, Vitamin B6 protects your nervous system, and Zinc supports the immune system and helps treat infections. But that’s not all. Bio Vegetarian also includes Zingiber (ginger root) which helps reduce inflammation and calm stomach upset, Capsicum (cayenne pepper) to promote healing and act as a natural painkiller, and Garlic to promote heart and immune system health. Take Bio Vegetarian 2 tablets- 3-5 times daily at the initial onset of illness for 1-2 days then reduce to 2 tablets-2 times daily for at least one week after you are feeling better. This supplement in contraindicated for anyone whom is pregnant due to the high amounts of vitamin A.
