Andrographolide is a major bioactive constituent of Andrographis paniculate, a plant said to have been traditionally used to for immune support.* It is also said to have antioxidant properties.*
Astragalus is said to have been used for thousands of years in Asia. The active part of the plant is thought to be its 4-7 year old dried root. The major active components of Astragalus are said to be polysaccharides, flavonoids and saponins. Astragalus is said to have been used for immune support and for its purported antioxidant properties.*
The dried root of Chinese skullcap, Scutellaria baicalensis, is said to have been used in China for over 2000 years.* It is often said to be used for immune support.*
Chinese Skullcap is thought to have multiple functions, due to its supposed polysaccharide, flavonoids and flavonoids glycosides content.* These constituents purportedly may help to support the balance of immune system functions. In addition, baicalin, a major component of skullcap, is also said to have been utilized for liver support.*
Skullcap is also said to be an antioxidant.* Chan et al., (2010) compared the antioxidant capacity of Chinese skullcap to roots with Polygonaceae, Ginseng and Araliaceae and reportedly found that water extracts of Chinese skullcap had the highest antioxidative capacity.*
Some research has suggested that major components of skullcap, baicalin and wogonin, may also potentially help to maintain brain health.*
Forsythia is a Chinese herb, which is said to have often been used to support immune health and healthy skin.* Forsythia is also said to have been commonly used in China for supporting good respiratory health.*
Tissue health is purported to be another common use of forsythia fruit.* It has allegedly been used to help maintain a healthy skin response to environmental factors.*
Forsythia extract is said to contain antioxidant components, including forsythoside A, isoforsythoside A, phillygenin, phillyrin, forsythialan A and polysaccharides.*
Japanese honeysuckle, Lonicera japonica, is a plant thought to be native to eastern Asia. It is said to have been used in China since ancient times.* Honeysuckle issaid to have been frequently used to help maintain the immune system.* Honeysuckle is also thought to contain antioxidant components.*
Quercetin is a reportedly a polyphenol derived from fruits and vegetables. It said to possess unique properties that may potentially help to support both physical and mental performance.* It has been suggested that it may also help to maintain immune system health.*
Selenium is said to be an essential micronutrient as well as an antioxidant that thought to play important roles in immune system health.* Adequate levels of selenium are said to be seemingly important for supporting various stages of immune response.* It has been said that selenium deficiency has long been recognized to affect immune cell functions and increased oxidative stress.*
Elderberry is said to have long been used as a supplement for helping to support the immune system.* Research has also reported its seeming antioxidant properties, as well as its potential for possibly helping to maintain healthy blood sugar levels.* In addition, elderberries are thought to contain a variety of vitamins, minerals and phytochemicals such as carotenoids.* These purported nutritional constituents may make elderberries a versatile supplement, not only for the immune system, but also overall wellbeing.*
Vitamin C is said to be an essential micronutrient which seemingly cannot be synthesized or stored by the human body.* Therefore, daily intake of Vitamin C is said to be critical.* Vitamin C may potentially be an effective micronutrient for supporting the immune system.*
Vitamin D is a fat-soluble micronutrient which is said to be critical for survival.* Vitamin D is allegedly typically obtained from sunlight, but it has also reportedly been found in foods such as fish, eggs and dairy.* It has been claimed that our bodies appear to synthesise vitamin D from cholesterol, given exposure to adequate UV rays.*
It has been suggested that vitamin D may potentially be beneficial for immune health, brain health, bone health, emotional wellbeing and healthy blood sugar levels, but further reseach is seemingly needed to support any such claims.*
Vitamin E is thought to function as an antioxidant.* Evidence suggests it seems to be obtained exclusively from diet.* It may potentially support joint health and healthy ageing, but the evidence is limited.*
Studies have suggested that Vitamin E may also potentially support the immune system.* In addition, some scarce evidence has suggested it could be beneficial for maintaining good heart health, although further evidence of this is certainly needed.*
Zinc is said to be an essential mineral which is thought to be involved in regulating intracellular signalling pathways in innate and adaptive immune functions.* It has been suggested that zinc deficiency may potentially affect roughly 30% of the elderly population.*
Having studied wellness and health for a few decades I appreciate the benefits of correct immune boosting herbs and botanicals which can boost the human immune system. Invictimune has everything I need to keep my immune system intact along with a healthy lifestyle.
Finally something that works!
I started the invictimune 6 months ago, and WOW. I normally suffer with tonsils 5/6 times a year - I haven’t had it once since starting! Also I get cdlsores all through the year that last atleast 2 weeks - I’ve only had ONE! And it went away within 2 days. I honestly cannot believe the difference it has made to my life. I feel healthy, energised and all round great for the first time ever and I can’t thank Zenstra enough for making these wonderful magical pills! Please never stop making them!
This product, again, I think is great. I use all 4 products. I am feeling better, sleeping better and getting on with what everyday throws at me. Highly recommend all products . Ps I will be repurchasing all the products
I'm very satisfied as always with your products. As for the affects, will have to wait and see how winter goes more to do with getting through the winter for me.. Let's see
These arrived very quickly and my husband and I have been taking one daily.
So far so good. Hopefully they will keep our immune systems strong during these uncertain times.
so far so good
I adore all the products by Zenstra Bio -Health. They are all effective and definitely helpful. And this one makes no exception. I’m taking it daily since I received, I began with one pill per day, now I’m taking two, if I feel a bit down I add up to 4 and it works every time. The best as always!
Very happy, literally. End of November '19 I was travelling through Southern Europe and had some foul cold. Had it for months, even through spring and summer hadn't felt right.
I decided to try this, and, apart from the fact I'm using my inhale less, which after 35 years is impressive, I feel just better in myself.
A big thumbs up from me 👍 and this is a great company to deal with, very responsive to any questions, good delivery and packaging.
Would highly recommend.
