ISB Formula

SKU: 1524
Supportive Function: ISB has a collection of nutrients, which are all known for their reputed roles in supporting the immune system. Echinacea, Goldenseal, garlic, and suma all have phytochemically active constituents. The list of ingredients is expanded to include antioxidants, synergistic vitamins, and thymus glandular support.

When is Immune Support helpful? Immune conditions, colds, flu, fever, infection, and malaise due to lowered immune defenses.
Clinical Applications Research: Vitamin A (as palmitate): Supports the mucous lining. It also appears to improve antibody response and white blood cell functions. Supplementary treatment of vitamin A is reported by some investigators to enhance antibody and cell-mediated immune response (Levis WR & Emden RG. Proc. Am Assoc. Cancer Res. (1976); 17:112; Cohen BE & Cohen IK. J. Immunol. (1976); 111:1376).

Vitamin C (as sago palm): Extra addition of vitamin C seems to boost the immune system by increasing cellular immune functions and stimulating neutrophils. Patients receiving 1 gram of vitamin C daily had improved neutrophil activity, resulting in a dramatic reduction of infectious attacks (Anderson, R. Int J Vitam Nutr Res. Suppl. 23:23-34, 1982; Patrone, R, Dallegri, F, Bonvivi, E, et al. Acta Vitaminol Enzymol. 4:163-68, 1982).

Vitamin E (as succinate): Vitamin E protects cells, including the cells of the immune system. Additionally, it seems to boost immune activity. "Vitamins E, A, C and carotenoids are able to protect cells and enhance humoral and cellular immune responses in disease" (Nockels, C.F. The role of vitamins in modulating disease resistance. 1988. Vet Clin North Am Food Anim Pract 4(3): 531-42).

B-Complex: The B vitamins help give us the energy to function. They are known as the "catalytic spark plugs" of the body; they catalyze many biochemical reactions because of their role as Co-enzymes.

Zinc (as chelate): Zinc is necessary for the proper function of white blood cells (WBC’s) and the thymic hormones. Zinc helps prevent the age-related shrinking of the thymus (involution), and is especially effective in restoring depressed cell-mediated immunity in the elderly.

Echinacea Purpurea (root): Echinacea is a natural herb that has been used for centuries as a medicinal agent, and in many scientific studies for its ability to enhance the immune system. It is known to stimulate macrophages and antibodies.
Contraindications: Do not take in pregnancy. Echinacea contains sugars in its cell membrane, which the body can build resistance to. Some believe that the immune system should not be constantly stimulated, and recommend not taking continuously (i.e. 8 weeks on, 1 week off). Goldenseal is contraindicated in pregnancy.
