This is the third article in a series on healthy immunity.
A healthy immune system is foundational to overall health. Everyday our bodies fight off assaults: cancer cells, viruses, and pathogenic bacteria. Illness happens when our immune system becomes overwhelmed, even temporarily, or “outsmarted” as in the case with cancer. Most of us don’t give a second thought to our immune systems until we become ill. Over the years my family has depended on Shaklee’s immune system products to help us fight back and keep our immune systems strong. I credit the nutritional support from these products for helping me to remain medication free from my allergies for over 15 years. Keep your family stocked up on these immune system necessities because viruses and illnesses seldom give you advance of their arrival in your household!
Formula I® – I wouldn’t be without this, ever! Formula I® is Shaklee’s first targeted delivery immune system product. From Shaklee’s website” Formula I ” contains a blend of six immunoactive vitamins – vitamin A in the form of beta carotene, vitamins C, E, B6, B12 and folic acid. It also contains mineral support for a strong immune system including: copper, selenium, and zinc. Zinc, vitamins E and C, and beta carotene also provide dietary support for healthy skin – your first line of defense”. It helps support your immune system’s T-helper cells. Very budget friendly for a family.
Nutriferon® – Nutriferon is an easy way to help support the complex function of interferon in your body. Created by the co-discoverer of interferon, Dr. Kojima, Nutriferon is a blend of 4 herbal plants that modulate the immune system. Shaklee has the international patent on Nutriferon. Watch the video below for a brief explanation on how it works. Nutriferon was also the subject of several studies including a hospital study on Hepatitis C. If your budget allows, make sure that every member of your family takes Nutriferon. There are extra discounts for a 4 or 12 pack of Nutriferon, and extra 10% off if you have it on autoship. It’s incredibly effective for immune system health.
Shaklee Defend & Resist Complex ® – This Echinacea, Black Elderberry, Larch Tree and Zinc blend is an important product to keep on hand at all times. Echinacea and elderberry are effective anti-viral herbs. Studies have shown that Black Elderberry is an effective anti-viral herb, although the exact mechanism has not been identified. Larch Tree stimulates the immune system and may help the gut create more probiotics. For the best results, Shaklee Defend & Resist must be taken when you first experience those “I-think-I’m-coming-down-with-something” symptoms like a scratchy throat. I recommend that you keep 2-3 bottles in your pantry for your family.
One of Echinacea’s properties is that is loses its effectiveness after 10 days. That is one reason why it should never be in a multi-vitamin. The best way to use Shaklee DR for over all immune system health is 10 days on, 5 days off. In our family, we use Formula I and Nutriferon for our immune system health, and keep Shaklee Defend & Resist for those times when we are fighting some kind of illness.
“Shaklee DR” can be chewed, swallowed, or made into a tea. Echinacea seems to work best in a tea form, so that it can begin working in your throat.
Vitalized Immunity® I really enjoy this product! One tablet has the vitamin C equivalent of 16 oranges! Like other Shaklee products it is blended with synergistic herbs and nutrients to increase effectiveness. . Take extra Vitalizing Immunity with you when you travel. Just drop 1 tab in water and enjoy the monk-fruit sweetened fizzy drink. You can drink it hot or cold. I felt better within a very short time. Excellent for children and adults.
