These 7 Natural Foods Make IMMU-C a Superior Immune Support Drink

5 min read time Sep 08, 2022

Description

Why is the immune system so important?

One of the main roles of an immune system is to protect the body from harmful invaders.  You see, without healthy immunity, you can’t fight unwanted bacteria that enter the body.  The immune system recognizes this and helps neutralize harmful substances from the environment.[1]

What is the best immune support drink?
The best immune support drink contains natural ingredients that support a healthy immune system and promote good digestion. Ingredients such as turmeric, ginger, sea buckthorn, astragalus, mangosteen, Chaga, and red reishi mushroom are good choices, all of which are in IMMU-C. 

In this article, we will summarize how these seven natural ingredients impact the immune system and why we believe this may make IMMU-C the best immune support drink available.

The natural ingredients in IMMU-C have been consumed for hundreds of years. Natural foods such as ginger, mangosteen fruit, and Chaga mushroom have long been traditional remedies chosen by natural healers to support the immune system. 

And this is why we believe the high-quality ingredients such as these make IMMU-C a far superior immune support drink compared to others available today.

Let’s now take a look at how these ingredients work to support a healthy immune system.

7 Ancient Ingredients Used to Support Immunity Naturally:

1. Sea Buckthorn 

Sea buckthorn is high in antioxidants and healthy plant compounds. It contains essential fatty acids and vitamins C, K, and E. Sea buckthorn has traditionally been used as a tonic drink and may demonstrate antimicrobial properties and may have antiviral properties that may promote immune health.

Sea Buckthorn contains an extraordinary amount of Vitamin C, possibly allowing for a stronger immunity boost. [3]

In addition, other fruits known to be abundant sources of Vitamin C, such as oranges, strawberries, kiwis, tomatoes, and carrots---all contain much lower concentrations of vitamin C than sea buckthorn berries.[1] 

2. Turmeric Root 

Turmeric root is a natural ingredient that is considered an effective scavenger of reactive oxygen species (ROS). This substance is a key component in keeping a robust immune system, as ROS are molecules that damage cells, DNA, and proteins. 

Research shows that turmeric root may help scavenge reactive oxygen species and support a healthy and strong immune system.[4, 5]

3. Red Reishi Extract 

Red reishi is a powerful immune booster. 

It contains high concentrations of organic Germanium, polysaccharides, and triterpenes, which may help strengthen immune cells. 

As an extract, Reishi is also known to support inflammatory responses and may possess powerful antioxidant properties, which make it a valuable addition to any health regimen.[6]

4.  Chaga Mushroom Extract 

Chaga mushrooms may be able to boost immunity by supporting inflammatory responses and may aid in fighting dangerous bacteria.[7]  

Chaga mushroom extract may also promote the formation of beneficial cytokines, which may help regulate the immune system, and may fuel white blood cells—which are essential in fighting viruses.[8]

5.  Mangosteen Fruit Juice

Mangosteen is a tropical fruit from Southeast Asia with powerful antioxidant properties. 

A clinical trial study involved 30 men and 30 women in which participants were divided into two groups—the placebo and mangosteen groups.  

The trial lasted for about 30 days, and the research found that after the 30-day trial, the group given the mangosteen-based drink formula demonstrated 15% more antioxidant capacity in the bloodstream than the placebo group.[9]

Mangosteen is filled with xanthones—a unique polyphenol that may help support important bodily functions—a contributing factor to immune health.[10]

6. Astragalus Root 

Astragalus is a potent substance that possesses plant compounds that may help protect the body from harmful invaders.  

In addition, research has shown that astragalus may enhance your body’s white blood cell production—which plays a vital role in maintaining a healthy immune system. [11]

7. Ginger Root 

Fresh ginger root is the foundation for the excellent beverage known as “ginger shots.” This amazing substance may contain high-powered antiviral and antibacterial properties that may help boost the immune response.[12]

These ancient immune-boosting ingredients may be key components in boosting immune health. Filled with an abundance of these nutrients, we believe IMMU-C is the best immune support drink today and one of the most potent immune boosters available.
