Product Description

Viral Defense™  provides  nutrients  that  support  immune  system  integrity.  They  are  vitamins A,  C,  and  D3; TRAACS® (the real amino acid chelate system) zinc,  a patented mineral amino acid chelate; and chelated selenium.  Supportive  herbs  include  echinacea,  olive  leaf,  astragalus,  elder  fower,  elderberry  extract,  and goldenseal. Glycerol monolaurate, beta-glucan, and lysine are present for additional support.*

Take one capsule daily, or as directed by your healthcare practitioner.

Consult your healthcare practitioner prior to use. 
Individuals taking medication should discuss potential
interactions with their healthcare practitioner. Do not use if tamper seal is damaged.

Does Not Contain

Wheat,  gluten,  soy,  dairy  products,  fsh,  shellfsh,
peanuts,  tree  nuts,  egg,  artifcial  colors,  artifcial
sweeteners, or artifcial preservatives.

The immune system defends the body against unfriendly microorganisms. The active “soldiers” that maintain immune system activity include specialized white blood cells, lymphocytes, phagocytes, killer T-cells, antibodies, interferon, and lactoferrin. The frst barrier against unfriendly invasions is the skin. Mucus secretions, including tears, gastric acid secretions, and saliva from the parotid gland, are part of this frst line of defense as well.There are two types of immunity. Innate immunity is the resistance we are born with, and adaptive immunity is the immunity that we acquire naturally when we are exposed to infective viruses, bacteria, other microorganisms, and toxins, or when we are artifcially vaccinated. Antibodies retain long-term memories of invaders they have faced; so, for instance, a person is likely to have the mumps only one time.

 

Dietary and lifestyle habits can have either negative or positive impacts on immune function. For example, refned sugar may interfere with white blood cells ability to destroy unfriendly bacteria.[1] Alcohol is reported to weaken a wide variety of immune responses.[2] Pang suggests that determining food allergies and omitting the offenders may be more helpful in resolving ear infections than conventional antibiotic treatment.[3] Excessive intake of unhealthy dietary fats has been reported to suppress natural killer T-cell activity.[4] In addition, immune system activity may be depressed by stress, overwork, faulty sleeping, and the aging process. On the other hand, there are many lifestyle changes and dietary changes that can enhance immune function. For example, exercise can increase natural killer T-cell activity.[5] Many vitamins, minerals, and herbs can support immune health and the numerous processes that help prevent cell damage and faulty replication.

 

The integrity and structure of the immune system depend upon nutrients and nutrient suffciency. Adequate intake of micronutrients supports not only the innate immunity that we are born with but also the immune cell and antibody response that is mounted in the face of acute challenges. Several nutrients, including vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin D, zinc, and selenium, work synergistically to support immune cell production and activity. Vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin E, and zinc assist in maintaining two important protective barriers: the skin and mucosa.[6]
