It's a fact of life that cold weather brings people closer together. Whether it's everyday life being more enclosed, or visiting family over the holidays, it's no secret that germs and colds spread faster in the colder times of year. Whatever the reason, it is most certainly the season to look into immune boosting supplements. There are quite a few good ones on the market, with the best using potent combinations of all natural ingredients to improve the bodies immune response and fight off illnesses.

New Chapter Take Care Perfect Immune

New Chapter® Take Care formulas target specific areas of wellness and provide combinations of whole-food cultured vitamins, minerals, herbs and super foods to support health and wellness. Immune Take Care combines multiple revered herbs to promote healthy immune function through multiple pathways. The antioxidant constituents in Elderberry unite with those in Black Currant to provide complementary immune-supportive benefits. Austrian-sourced Elderberry is optimally grown to support the body's natural immune defenses. Black Currant extract supports healthy microbial balance and helps to maintain normal cell growth. Using a process of membrane extraction, New Chapter provides a highly concentrated dose of key immune boosting ingredients. Membrane extraction is purely mechanical, pushing fruit through a very fine filter. It's simple, pure, and uses no solvents or evaporation. The unique process filters out sugar molecules while allowing the fruit's natural proportions of beneficial phyto-nutrients to be delivered. Compared to whole Elderberry and whole Black Currant, these extracts have the same profile of rich chemistry, but are highly concentrated to deliver maximum benefit.

Vibrant Health Bulls Eye

Vibrant Health is another company that uses high quality, whole food based ingredients in their products in order to provide the most benefit from each ingredient. Bulls Eye is a combination of potent antioxidants, among other ingredients that allow the body to fight off potential infections. 

Clove bud possesses powerful antiseptic properties, and has been used as a topical treatment for cuts, scrapes, and infections. When taken internally, clove bud extract has antiviral properties and may help purify the blood, increasing resistance to a multitude of diseases. Cinnamic acid powder is derived from oil of cinnamon. It adds to the clove buds strength by increasing antioxidant activity in the body. Many derivatives of cinnamic acid are great free radical scavengers, a very helpful property. It has also shown to be antimicrobial, which can help the immune system in cases of fungal infections.

Jambolan leaf extract is included because it is also very effective at preventing oxidation, and free radical damage.  Pomegranate fruit extract has been shown to be rich in ellagic acid, a very powerful antioxidant. Lemon balm extract contains a ton of antioxidants such as eugenol and rosmarinic acid, which show they support healthy brain aging. Other powerful antioxidants include ferulic acid, caffeic acid, and quercetin. Rosemary extract rounds out the impressive list of antioxidant ingredients in this product. It contains antibacterial and antioxidant rosmarinic acid, plus several essential oils such as cineol, camphene, borneol, bornyl acetate, and alpha-pinene that are known to have anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal, and antiseptic properties. These ingredients combine to help protect the body from external damages, and keep you healthy.

Cat's Claw extracts have shown in testing to increase the white blood cell count in the body. White blood cells are responsible for fighting infection, so an increase can lead to better defense from infection. 

These plant extracts combine with a little pure benzoic acid and refined cinnamic acids in BullsEye, a NEW dietary supplement that boosts your body’s own ability to stomp on some very criminal bacteria. The rogue’s gallery includes

 

  • Bacillus subtilis
  • Candida albicans
  • Enterobacter aerogenes
  • Escherichia coli
  • Proteus spp
  • Pseudomonas aeruginosa
  • Klebsiella pneumoniae
  • Salmonella choleraesuis
  • Shigella spp
  • Staphylococcus aureus

Vibrant Health's Bulls Eye is a great product to keep your body's immune system in it's best operating condition, to hopefully help keep you from burning those sick days this season.
