PROTECT YOUR HEALTH: PLANT MEDICINES FOR YOUR STRONGEST IMMUNITY
We often step up our health regimens when cold and flu season approaches. It’s important to understand how your immune system works and that it is crucial to support a strong immune system to help protect your health.
Certain plant medicines known as adaptogens offer powerful support in fortifying critical immune responses against illness and infection by proactively strengthening your innate immunity – your first line of immune defense!
ADAPTOGENS – FOR YOUR STRONGEST IMMUNITY
You can protect your health – and your family’s – by boosting the body’s innate ability to fight off illness. The key here is balance!
When an immune system is overactive, there are greater inflammatory reactions (e.g., severe allergies, autoimmune conditions). If it is underactive, one is more susceptible to infections.
A balanced immune system is your strongest immune system, one that responds appropriately, efficiently, and effectively to external threats.
This is what makes adaptogens so effective for immune support: their ability to increase the body’s general resistance to threats by adapting their function to what the body needs for its systems to regulate back to its balanced, strongest state.
Deep Immune® daily tonic is made with immune-specific adaptogens that work to balance and fortify the immune system. Some of these include:
- Reishi mushroom – highly valued in Traditional Chinese Medicine for lowering the effects of stress and modulating immune system responses. In fact, it is often referred to as “the mushroom of immortality”!
- Astragalus – boosts immunity by strengthening both innate and adaptive immunity for a robust defensive system.
- Siberian ginseng (Eleuthero) – traditionally used to increase stamina and as a tonic to boost overall health and improve mental and physical performance under stressful conditions.
- Licorice – considered “the great harmonizer” in traditional Chinese medicine, amplifies the healing qualities of all the ingredients.
Individually, the immune benefits of these herbs are great, but knowing which are best and what dosages to take can be hard to figure out.
Deep Immune® eliminates the guesswork! Canada’s #1, award-winning, daily immune tonic brings together the right amounts of 8 powerful therapeutic immune supportive herbs that work in synergy – meaning they are more effective together than on their own.
THERE ARE 3 DEEP IMMUNE FORMULAS:
- Deep Immune® Original for Adults.
- Deep Immune® Licorice-Free is modified to eliminate licorice, so that it is safe for those with (or at risk for) hypertension.
- Deep Immune® Kids is a safe, effective, mild-tasting formula that stimulates improved immune function in children and contains only astragalus and codonopsis. We know how quickly a cough can travel around a classroom!
HOW TO TAKE DEEP IMMUNE
Ideally, Deep Immune® is taken daily as part of a regular routine 3 weeks on, 1 week off, starting several weeks prior to high exposure times. But, ultimately, it’s never too late to start balancing your family’s immune systems.
Herbal prevention is easy to add to your daily routine. Just take Deep Immune tincture twice daily in a little water – a shot glass is even better. Or use convenient Deep Immune VegiCaps.
For kids – you can add their dosages to a little juice, or even a smoothie – it’s about whatever works. Consistency is key!
