Your body’s immune response is like your own personal army. Support the soldiers inside your fort with a formula optimized for supporting your immune response.*
The body’s immune response is a complex system with three key components: cellular production, inflammatory response, and oxidative burst. Immune Defense + supports each component to optimize your immune function day in and day out.* Its safe and effective formula can be used when you need it – just drop a disc in your favorite hot or cold liquid for a healthful beverage that supports your immune function year-round.*
It contains easily-absorbed forms of immune-supporting vitamins D and C, as well as zinc.
The form of quercetin in Immune Defense + is 20 times better absorbed than a plain quercetin extract.
Immune Defense + is a Meyer lemon-flavored, water-soluble disc – it makes a convenient and drinkable supplement, without all the capsules.
Unlike other immune-support supplements, Immune Defense + optimizes each part of your body’s immune response – your cellular production, inflammatory response, and oxidative burst.*
100% PLASTIC FREE
We pride ourselves on having developed Effusio discs with no plastic in our packaging.
Quercetin is a flavonoid found naturally in fruits and vegetables; it has antioxidant and immune-supportive properties, as well as the capacity to help maintain a healthy inflammatory response.*
Quercetin helps stabilize the cell membranes of mast cells, which results in down-regulating the release of histamine.* Histamine release is associated with the body’s allergic response, such as the response associated with a seasonal allergy.
Quercetin exerts beneficial action on other components of healthy immune function by supporting the stimulation and activity of various types of immune cells and enzymes that are part of an optimal immune response.*
Quercetin helps maintain the body’s normal inflammatory response in the respiratory tract, by beneficially moderating the release of pro-inflammatory cytokines.*
Vitamin C, an important antioxidant, plays a beneficial role in the production of new immune cells and antibodies, as well as protecting healthy white blood cells from oxidative damage.*
Clinical studies associate a deficiency of vitamin C with less than optimal immune function.*
Zinc plays a vital role in the body’s production of healthy immune cells, such as white blood cells, and it moderates the activity of these cells during times of immune stress.*
Immune Defense + contains zinc picolinate – a chelated form of zinc – for optimal absorption.
Vitamin D helps balance immune function by up-regulating the oxidative burst function of healthy immune cells.*
Vegan vitamin D and quercetin work together to benefit immune response by helping to maintain a healthy inflammatory response in the tissues of the respiratory tract.*
A healthy immune response involves three well-functioning components: immune cell production, inflammatory response, and oxidative burst.
The production component involves the production of the immune cells, cell messengers, and proteins that the body needs to initiate an effective immune response.* The inflammatory response includes the timely release of immune cells, antibodies, and the cellular messengers that direct the immune response to the body’s area of need.* Finally, the oxidative burst function promotes the release of the substances that resist invading organisms.*
With its unique blend of science-backed ingredients, Immune Defense + supports all three aspects list above of your body’s immune response – helping you shine your brightest all year round.
