Immune Ultra — Powered By Medicinal Mushrooms and Herbs
Immune Ultra contains a group of medicinal mushrooms such as Reishi, Cordyceps, Maitake and Shiitake, which create a natural synergy to significantly boost immune health and function while protecting against various bacterial infections.
The success is created by the synergy of these carefully selected compounds which have potential antiviral and antibacterial ability. We also wanted to stimulate natural killer (NK) cell activity, while supporting the synthesis of the T-cell and B-cell mediated responses, making a complete immune boosting and general support formula.
EchinaceaEchinacea is a native herbal remedy native to North America! It is widely used in natural medicine to prevent, or treat colds and other illness relating to the immune system. Research shows that extracts of echinacea shortens the duration and severity of colds and other upper respiratory infections, especially when given as soon as symptoms begin.
Green Tea ExtractGreen Tea Extract has been shown to boost natural killer cell activity by 41% and provides a potent cellular immune function boost, while inhibiting tumor growth. An excellent short and long-term botanical nutrient.
AstragalusAstragalus is an adaptogenic herb that has been used in Traditional Chinese Medicine for thousands of years. It is used to support the immune system, prevent colds and upper respiratory infections while acting as a natural antibacterial and anti-inflammatory.
ElderberryElderberry can reduce swelling in mucous membranes such as the sinuses and help relieve nasal congestion. It may reduce the length of time of flu and cold symptoms.
Cordyceps sinensis is a medicinal mushroom commonly used to increase energy levels. It may modulate IL-6 production by activating macrophages, cells that fight infection and support the local and systemic immune system.
Ganoderma lucidum, known as Reishi is one of the most popular medicinal mushrooms that has been used for at least 5000 years in Traditional Chinese Medicine. It is considered “The Mushroom of Immortality” and is a potent adaptogen to increase the body’s resistance to stress and overcome immune challenges.
Other Immune Ultra Ingredients
Andrographis: A beautiful plant that supports the immune system by promoting healthy levels of immune cells in the blood. Supports a normal body temperature and throat health.
Arabinogalactans (from larch tree): A polysaccharide that stimulates the immune system by acting as a prebiotic to the gastrointestinal tract. Increases beneficial bacteria such as bifidobacteria and lactobacillus. Since the immune system resides in the GI tract, this botanical is essential for immune health.
Lauric acid: Lauric acid is used in food products and is found naturally in coconut oil. It acts as a natural antibacterial.
Beta 1,3 Glucan: Beta-glucans are part of many fungi which possess immunomodulatory activities. They are potent anti-infective compounds and modulate the NK killer cells.
Goldenseal: When combined with Echinacea, Goldenseal root extract significantly enhances immune function by increasing antigen-specific immunoglobulin production and show antimicrobial activity.
Shiitake: A common culinary mushroom that has immune supporting qualities. Recent studies have shown the ability of shiitake to protect against cardiovascular disease by preventing excessive immune cell binding to the lining of our blood vessels.
