TWENTY FIRST CENTURY HERBS IMMUNE FORMULA
The immune system is the body’s way of protecting us against disease. To function correctly, an immune system must identify a wide variety of things, from viruses to the common cold, while also protecting the body’s own health tissue. As herbalists, we believe the immune system is challenged in a variety of different ways also; it can be affected emotionally. Liver health also plays a crucial role in the body’s immune system.
Twenty First Century Herbs Immune Complex can help you with a wide variety of issues by strengthening the immune system. Most other immune formulas on the market currently are low potency and based around synthetic vitamins and minerals. At Twenty First Century Herbs, that’s not how we work. We use plants and only plants in all of our formulas and include only the highest quality available.
What is included in Immune Complex?
• Goldenseal: An effective antiseptic and anti-microbial.Today, herbalists still widely recommend golden seal for many kinds of infections, inflammations and irritations of the mucous membranes. The mucous membranes are the “slime-producing” coating of our entire digestive tract, upper respiratory tract and urinary tract. They act as a protective barrier against bacteria, viruses and other kinds of mechanical irritation. When we have a urinary tract, upper respiratory tract or bowel inflammation or infection, it is mainly the mucous membranes which are first affected. Golden seal works well with these infections, bringing in more immune energy and increasing the micro-circulation to the “surface” (right beneath the membranes), which can help eliminate waste and speed up the healing process.
• Echinacea: An antiseptic and non-toxic antibiotic which exerts an antiviral effect by stimulating an immune response. It increases bodily resistance to infection and is commonly used as a blood cleanser on impurities. Studies have concluded that echinacea contains active elements that heighten the activity of the immune system, resulting in the relief of pain & inflammation, as well as having hormonal, antiviral, and antioxidant effects. As a result of this echinacea is used to treat urinary tract infections, vaginal yeast (candida) infections, ear infections (also known as otitis media), athlete’s foot, sinusitis, hay fever (also called allergic rhinitis), as well as slow-healing wounds.
• Thyme: An antibacterial, anti-viral and antiseptic that is great on coughs and inflammation of the chest or throat. Actively works on strengthening the lungs and also aids in the removal of phlegm.
