Vitamin C is one of nature’s most powerful antioxidants, working to protect the body from free radicals.
As a water-soluble vitamin, Vitamin C is not stored in the body and must be regularly replaced through diet or supplementation (the body cannot make it on its own).
Vitamin C is commonly used to help support improved immune function and to help prevent and treat symptoms of the common cold. Research has also shown that Vitamin C supplementation can reduce the duration of colds by anywhere between 5% and 21%.
Vitamin C has been shown to reduce incidence of colds by up to a remarkable 50% among people undergoing heavy stress, such as soldiers and athletes.
Zinc is a mineral that is important to the body in so many ways. Zinc exerts a powerful antioxidant activity and is most well-known for its immune system benefits in helping the body fight off invading bacteria and viruses and potentially shortening the duration of the common cold.
In addition to these powerful immune enhancing benefits, zinc may also help heal wounds, support normal growth, promote healthy skin and vision, is involved in the synthesis of collagen in bone tissue, promotes healthy cardiovascular and neurological function, and has potent anti-aging benefits.
Zinc is also an essential component of superoxide dismutase, one of the body’s most powerful natural antioxidants.
Elderberry Extract (Sambucus nigra):
Elderberry extract is commonly used to help prevent and ease cold and flu symptoms and has a very long and storied history of use.
Elderberry extract, commonly known but its Latin name, Sambucus nigra, has traditionally been used as a winter remedy and to promote health and well-being; and in recent years, researchers have proven its efficacy in clinical trials, with many experts recommending Elderberry to help prevent and ease cold and flu symptoms.
Elderberry extract has been used for centuries to help support the immune system, especially during the winter months or when experiencing extra stress. More and more people have started using Elderberry year round to help boost the immune system which makes sense as the level of stress in most people’s daily lives continues to increase.
Elderberry is packed with many naturally occurring vitamin and antioxidant constituents including rutin, quercetin (flavonoids), and anthocyanins that are known to provide complimentary immune-supportive benefits.
In addition to its potential immune enhancing benefits, Elderberry is also commonly used for sinus pain, sciatica, nerve pain (neuralgia), chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), and to help ease inflammation.
Black Currant (Ribes nigrum) contains a high concentration of Vitamin C, antioxidants, polyphenols, anthocyanins, and gamma-linoleic acid (GLA). These provide potent antioxidant protection and may help strengthen the immune system, soothe sore throats, ease flu symptoms, and much more.
Black Currant has a wide range of properties including antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, antiviral, antioxidant, and more. In addition to its potential immune enhancing benefits, Black Currant is also commonly used to for a variety of issues including helping reduce eye fatigue and discomfort, muscle fatigue, cholesterol, oxidative stress, improved blood flow, gastrointestinal health, and more. Black Currant may even help promote the healthy growth of hair, skin, and nails. Also due to its gamma-linoleic acid and anthocyanin content, it has potent anti-inflammatory properties and may help ease inflammation in the body.
For a long time, Black Currants were called ‘the forbidden fruit’ in the United States because they were banned from being grown because they were thought to negatively impact the logging industry. Because of this, many Americans missed out on the benefits of these nutritious berries while those in the United Kingdom used them for flavoring, juices, jams, and much more.
Elderberries and Black Currant both provide potent antioxidant action which makes them a great combination for supporting the immune system which is why both are included in Immune Support XT.
Olive Leaf Extract:
Olive leaf is one of the most popular and widely known supplements for helping support healthy immune function. It has potent antioxidant benefits and antiviral benefits.
The Olive Leaf Extract used in Immune Support XT is standardized to a minimum 20% Oleuropein. Oleuropein has antibacterial, antiviral, antifungal, antiparasitic, and antioxidant benefits and is the key constituent in Olive Leaf that has been identified as delivering its health benefits and standardization assures specific measurable levels of the important compounds needed in order to achieve desired results.
In addition to its antiviral and immune enhancing benefits, Olive Leaf Extract may also help support blood sugar regulation, fat loss, thyroid function, and much more.
Ever hear of the Mediterranean diet and its host of benefits for overall improved health? The Mediterranean diet is heavy on olive oil. Olive Leaf Extract, just as the name sounds, is derived from the leaves of olives and the type used in Lean Edge is standardized for a very high concentration of Oleuropein, which is the main constituent of Olive Leaf Extract that is responsible for many of its associated health benefits.
Echinacea (Std. to min 4% Echinacosides):
Echinacea is a plant whose roots and leaves have traditionally been used for medicinal purposes and is one of the most popular and commonly used herbs used to help promote healthy immune function.
Echinacea is commonly used either in response to or for daily prevention of the common cold. Some studies have shown that Echinacea can reduce the odds of developing a cold by up to 58% and reduce the duration by 1 to 4 days.
Echinacea is widely used to help fight infections, especially the common cold and the flu. Echinacea has been identified as having anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and antiviral properties and as an immune strengthening agent. It has been shown to enhance the immune system and reduce many of the symptoms of colds, flu, and some other illnesses, infections, and conditions.
The Echinacea Extract used in Immune Support XT is standardized to a minimum 4% Echinacosides, the key constituent in Echinacea that has been identified as delivering its potent immune enhancing benefits and standardization assures specific measurable levels of the important compounds needed in order to achieve desired results.
In addition to its potential immune enhancing benefits, Echinacea may also be used to help control blood sugar, aid in healthy cell growth, support anxiety management, lower blood pressure, and reduce inflammation.
Grape Seed Extract:
Grape Seed Extract is rich in antioxidants, including phenolic acids, anthocyanins, flavonoids, and is one of the best known sources of oligomeric proanthocyanin complexes (OPC’s). OPC’s are a powerful antioxidant responsible for most of the benefits of grape seed extract.
Grape Seed Extract is commonly used to increase antioxidant levels in the body to help promote a healthy immune system to fight off bacterial and viral infections.
