        Our Immunity is actually like an Army of Bodyguards, protecting our complex systems from alien predators like bacteria & opportunistic pathogens, such as viruses, fungi and parasites.  When intelligence is gathered that an attack is underway, the troops are sent in to combat the invaders and swarm the infected tissues.

        SUPER IMMUNE FORCE provides the synergistic effects of various immune stimulating and immunomodulating botanicals & nutrients. Standardized extracts of both Echinaceas, Astragalus, Goldenseal, North American Ginseng, Elderberry, Olive Leaf, Thyme, Ginger as well as N-acetyl cysteine and Beta-carotene work to dramatically respond to bacterial and viral attack, thereby reducing the duration of illness.

        Immunity is enhanced through various immune mechanisms , including T-cell, natural killer cell and macrophage activity, interferon production, inflammatory support for mucous membranes, helping the system to cough up the mucous, and thinning the mucous to make this easier.

        FOR DOCTORS

        GOLDENSEAL Hydrastis canadensis, a perennial herb native to the northern and eastern forested regions of northern America, was traditionally used for the treatment of sores, colds and flu using root extracts. H. canadensis L. has been traditionally used in herbal medicine to help relieve mucous membrane inflammations of the mouth as per the NHPD monograph (April 2008). Goldenseal is traditionally used in Herbal Medicine to help alleviate infectious and inflammatory conditions of the digestive tract such as gastritis.  Constituents found in the goldenseal root are alkaloids, amino acids, carbohydrates, phytosteroles, resin, and volatile oil. The main alkaloids are the phthalidisoquinoline alkaloid hydrastine and the quaternary protoberberine-type alkaloid berberine, which are well known for their antibacterial activity.

        ASTRAGALUS Astragalus membranaceus has been traditionally used in Traditional Chinese Medicine to tonify lungs and for frequent colds as stated in the NHPD monograph (January 2008). One of the most well-known formulations is Danggui Buxue Tang (DBT), which consists of two herbs: Radix angelicae sinensis (Danggui, RAS) and Radix astragali (Huangqi, RA).

        The immuno-stimulating properties of Astragalus reside in the polysaccharides present in the root. CD69 is an activation marker on mature T cells and immature thymocytes, B cells, NK cells, monocytes, neutrophils and eosinophils and can be expressed as early as one hour after stimulation of resting T cells and can be present for at least 18 hours.  It appears that the symptoms experienced by patients with seasonal allergic rhinitis (SAR) appear to be similar to those experienced during an outbreak of cold or flu.  It was found that the symptom of nasal congestion was common between SAR patients and cold/flu patients.

        The immunoregulatory function of different constituents (flavonoid extract, saponin extract, polysaccharides extract and amino acids extract) within Radix Astragali was examined on mice using two immunological assays and  found that polysaccharides comprised the major constituents in Radix Astragali. The nonspecific immunological polysaccharide effects of the extracts were tested by measuring the immune-organ weights and phagocytic activity in mice. Results showed that the polysaccharide extract of Radix Astragali increased the indexes of thymus, spleen, and phagocytosis K and immunological activity in mice serum hemolysin.

        ECHINACEA Echinacea angustifolia  The roots and rhizomes of Echinacea angustifolia DC. has been traditionally used in herbal medicine to help relieve the symptoms of upper respiratory tract infections as per the NHPD monograph (June 2008). Echinacea is one of the most extensively used plants for the prevention and treatment of upper respiratory tract infections. Anti-inflammatory properties have been attributed to the alkamides of E. angustifolia and Echinacea. purpurea. There is speculation that when present in the upper respiratory tract, alkamides from Echinacea preparations may act as CB ligands and exhibit immunomodulatory potential.

        ECHINACEA Echinacea purpurea  As per the NHPD monograph (June 2008), the aerial parts of Echinacea purpurea L. has been used to help fight off infections of the upper respiratory tract and to relieve symptoms and shorten the duration of upper respiratory tract infections. As stated above, Echinacea is one of the most extensively used plants for the prevention and treatment of upper respiratory tract infections. An oral solution with a fixed combination of standardized extracts of Echinacea purpurea, Adhatoda vasica and Eleutherococcus senticosus  has been available in Scandinavia for around 20 years as a herbal medicinal product for the relief of symptoms associated with the common cold (coughing and irritability of the throat) with well –established medica use comprising over 50 million human daily doses. In Germany alone, there are more than 200 different preparations of E. purpurea marketed with major indications for use being immune modulation and symptom relief in connection with common colds of viral origin.

        NORTH AMERICAN GINSENG Panax quniquefolius  Panax quniquefolius L. has been traditionally used in herbal medicine to help maintain a healthy immune system as per the NHPD monograph (November 2009).

        ELDERBERRY Sambucus nigra  has a long history of traditional use among European herbalist with documentation since ancient times in the writings of Hippocrates, Dioscorides and Pliny the Elder. An ethno-botanical review of wild plants harvested in Poland from the 18th century to present for culinary use found Sambucus nigra fruit was harvested and used to make wine, jam and soup.

        Recently the existing literature was reviewed in order to update the data on the pharmacological effects and clinical efficacy of elderberry fruit. Elderberry is used to treat symptoms associated with colds, cold and flu symptoms including aches and pains, coughing, nasal congestion, mucous discharge and fever while stimulating the immune system. Compounds identified in the elderberries include flavonoids (hyperoside, isoquercitrin and rutoside), up to 1% of anthocyanins, including chrysanthemin (cyanidin-3-O-glucoside), cyanidin- 3-O,5-O-diglucoside, cyanidin-3-O-sambubioside, cyanidin- 3-O-sambubiosid-5-O-glucoside, sambucin (cyanidin- 3-O-rhamnoglucoside), sambucyanin (cyanidin-3-Oxyloglucoside) and traces of essential oil.

        The pharmacological action of elderberry extract increases hemagglutination inbibition titers to influenza B in the sera of flu patients. In vitro studies show an immunoprotective or immunostimulatory effect and increase production of inflammatory and anti-inflammatory cytokines. Sambucus nigra agglutinin, a lectin found in elderberry was shown to induce the release of IL-4 from human basophils causing the release of IL-13 and histamine.  It appears that these lectins appear to be important in elderberry antiviral activities.

        OLIVE LEAF Olea europaea has been used as a folk remedy for combating fevers and other diseases. Olive leaf tea is one of the most common traditional herbal teas used amongst the Mediterranean population.  The German Commission E states that preparations of olive leaf are used as an antihypertensive and diuretic. Oleuropein is a phenolic secoiridoid glycoside found in the bark, leaves and fruit of the olive tree, as well as in some other genera of the Oleaceae.  Oleuropein, the predominant secoiridoid is present in high amounts in the leaves and may act as a potent antioxidant with anti-inflammatory properties. Decoctions of the dried fruit and leaf are taken orally to treat respiratory tract infections. Oleuropein has been marketed in USA as Oleuropein olive leaf herbal extract, a nonspecific immunostimulant.

        In-vitro activity of the phenolic compounds in olive leaves are seen against several microorganisms that may be causal agents of human intestinal and respiratory tract infections, namely Gram positive (Bacillus cereus, B. subtilis and Staphylococcus aureus), Gram negative bacteria (Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Escherichia coli and Klebsiella pneumoniae) and fungi (Candida albicans and Cryptococcus neoformans).

        N-ACETYL CYSTEINE NAC  has shown effectiveness as a mucolytic agent due to its sulfhydryl group interacting with disulfide bonds in mucoprotein, with the mucus subsequently being broken into smaller, less viscous units. NAC may also act as an expectorant, clearing mucus from the air passages by stimulating both ciliary action and the gastro-pulmonary vagal reflex.

        THYME Thymus vulgaris  As per the NHPD monograph (February 2008), Thymus vulgaris has been traditionally used in herbal medicine as an expectorant to help relieve the symptoms of bronchitis and catarrhs of the upper respiratory tract and to help relieve coughs.

        The spasmolytic and antitussive activity of Thyme has been most often attributed to the phenolic constituents thymol and carvacrol, which make up a large percentage of the volatile oil. Although these compounds have been shown to prevent contractions induced in the ileum and the trachea of the guinea-pig, by histamine, acetylcholine and other reagents, the concentration of phenolics in aqueous preparations of the drug is insufficient to account for this activity.

        GINGER Zinigiber officinale has been traditionally used in herbal medicine as an expectorant and anti-tussive to help relieve bronchitis as well as coughs and colds as per the NHPD monograph (January 2008).  Ginger is a potent inhibitor of inflammatory prostaglandins and thromboxanes, explaining why patients experiencing joint discomfort reported significant pain relief following the consumption of ginger, benefitting patients with the aches and pains associated with influenza.

        BETA-CAROTENE As per the NHPD monograph (November 2007), B-carotene is a used as a source of vitamin A to help maintain eyesight, skin, membranes and immune function. Various epidemiological studies have shown an association between diets rich in carotenoids and a reduced incidence of many forms of cancer.  Antioxidant properties of these compounds are a causative factor. One specific carotenoid, beta-carotene, is highlighted in preventing cancer.  Numerous publications have described in vitro experiments and animal studies which suggest that not only can this carotenoid protect against the development of cancer, but also several other chronic diseases. Since the immune system plays a major role in cancer prevention, it has been suggested that beta-carotene may enhance immune cell function.
