A Natural Liquid Immune System Support for Children

What does A-Z Immune Booster do?

A-Z Immune Booster provides a complementary combination of herbs, vitamins and minerals designed to work together to support immune health in a great tasting natural grape flavored liquid.

How Does It Work?

Free radicals are unstable compounds formed in the body during metabolism and from exposure to environmental sources such as pollution and cigarette smoke. Free radicals are necessary for energy metabolism and immune function, but when too many free radicals are formed, they can attack healthy cells, especially their membrane lipids and proteins. This, in turn, is thought to affect a number of functions in the body, including the best performance of the immune system.

Beta-carotene is an important antioxidant nutrient that protects healthy cells from oxidative and free radical damage. Numerous studies have demonstrated the importance of beta-carotene for normal immune function. The immune benefits of beta-carotene are due to its vitamin A precursor role and its antioxidant functions. Beta Carotene works by growing and multiplying the number of infection fighting cells, natural killer cells and helper T cells in the body.

Zinc is an essential trace element involved in most aspects of cellular metabolism. General signs of human zinc deficiency indicate that zinc has important functions in maintaining immune function, normal growth and development during pregnancy, wound healing, reproduction, healthy skin, and growth. Numerous studies support the fundamental role of zinc in normal immune response in humans. Immune cells must be able to rapidly divide in order to respond to daily challenges. Like all rapidly dividing cells, immune cells depend on adequate amounts of dietary zinc.

Blueberries contain a powerful class of antioxidants known as proanthocyanidins. Proanthocyanidins are among the most powerful natural free-radical scavengers yet discovered. As such, proanthocyanidins have their own unique place in the bodyís overall protection against harmful free radical damage and not only do they have immune boosting properties, they have anti-aging benefits, improve blood circulation and protects from arteriosclerosis, enhances connective tissue health, enhances the effects of vitamin C, helps to lower cholesterol levels, reduces inflammation & edema, and lowers the risk of cancer, stroke, and heart diseases.

Healthy immune function can also be maintained by supporting a well balanced production of cytokines (proteins that serve as messengers between cells).

Studies using elderberry have indicated that it may have effective immuno-protective abilities, by boosting the production of cytokines to help regulate the body's immune response.

Honeysuckle has also been reported for its immuno-protective properties by being a purifier and cleanser of the body, removing toxins from the blood, liver and urinary tracts, and the intestinal system. It has also been shown to lower fevers and fight infections.
