Winterize Your Immune System
The immune system protects the body by responding quickly to outside influences. Immune system components addressed by Wellness Formula include protective barriers such as the skin and mucous membranes, cell-mediated immunity involving T-lymphocytes and thymus support, and humoral immunity consisting of B-lymphocytes and macrophage interactions.

White blood cells generate free radicals, highly reactive molecules that can damage cells. Vitamin C, a free radical scavenger, is concentrated in certain white blood cells at much greater levels than in surrounding fluid, providing them with a built-in defense mechanism. Bioflavonoids complement the action of vitamin C.

Stress Response Mechanisms
Science now shows that emotional and physiological stress significantly impact the immune system. Siberian ginseng is an adaptogen whose key constituents, saponin glycosides, support the body's stress response.

Respiratory System: Cleansing Mucous Membranes
Our nasal passages, sinuses, throat and bronchial tubes are protected by mucous membranes, moist layers of connective tissue that are the first line of immune defense. Nutritional support ensures the integrity of these tissues. As a result, the membranes help to protect us and to cleanse the body of outside influences. The addition of herbiotics helps to cleanse the mucous membranes, which is an important part of winterizing your immune system.
