We all know that our immune system is our first line of defense against illness. This complicated system of biological structures and processes within our bodies protects against disease. All good. Until life happens. Not enough sleep, poor nutrition, stress, exposure to elements that cause or carry pathogens—in other words, daily life— can weaken our body's ability to stay healthy. Chronic illness, or even some treatments for illness such as chemotherapy, can also disrupt our immune system's magnificently complicated approach to illness prevention.
Our Immune System Support Formula contains three superheroes of the natural world. Astragalus Root has been used in Chinese medicine for centuries to support the immune system. This rather homely (but much appreciated by us) root is also mentioned in many studies and scientific reports as helping support the increase of white blood cells counts and even help with the toxic effects of chemotherapy.
Also used in both naturopathic and western medicine, Reishi Mushroom extract helps support the production of white blood cells and is even used by those suffering from rheumatoid arthritis. This remarkable mushroom supports a healthy blood pressure and has antioxidant effects. We're fans. And to add even more punch, our formula includes Eleuthero, also known as Siberian Ginseng. Eleuthero has been shown to support the increase of antibodies in the blood and is an 'adaptogen', a fancy name for something that helps increase resistance to emotional, chemical and physical trauma because it reduces nitric oxide and cortisol levels, thereby mitigating the harmful effects of stress.
Just know this
With these three superheroes in its corner, we think this product is a winner. That it's also USDA Certified Organic, like everything offered by Nova Scotia Organics, just seems appropriate, doesn't it?
It's your body. Run it well. TM
