Pertinent cells of the immune system are shown, such as plasma, B, Memory T, Helper T, and Cytotoxic cells, as well as Macrophage.


AS I’VE remarked several times on this blog, many supplements benefit the body in several ways. In fact, rare is it that a supplement would only be helpful for one thing, say the heart, or joints.

Fish oil, for instance, is known to reduce the risk of heart disease AND support cognitive function AND benefit the health of the macula and retina of the eye AND improve joint function. Wow.

So, any particular supplement can favor several physical functions. If some supplement, for example, reduces stress or illness then, naturally, it benefits the immune system which has one less battle to fight.

There’s a long list of innovative supplements that can help improve your immune system in a variety of ways, such as antioxidants to boost amino acids or calm inflammation; and nutrients that address T-cells, or trigger “natural killer” cells — the immune system’s inherent defenders.

Immune system supplements like ProBoost Thymic Protein A, Green Tea Mega EGCG and Transfer Factor Essentials™ are exceptional for building your immune system.

I haven’t been sick for years, but when I do feel “something” circling about, I increase my consumption of the usual stuff, such as Vitamin C and any of these excellent multivitamin/mineral supplements, then then turn to:

Olive Leaf Extract (15% Oleuropein) (60 medium veggie capsules)

Olive Leaf Extract  This has a wonderful compound called oleuropein which can help the body battle viruses, bacteria, and fungi.  Like with Host Defense (below), I take this when I may need it, not on a regular basis.

ImmPower (30 medium veggie capsules)

™ AHCC® is developed by combining several species of mushrooms used in traditional Japanese healing to make one, extremely powerful, hybridized mushroom.  ImmPower™ is specially formulated to support the immune system’s front-line defenses, including maintaining peak Natural Killer cell activity. ImmPower™ contains AHCC® (Active Hexose Correlated Compound), a unique hybrid extract of several mushrooms used in traditional Japanese healing. This formula enhances the body’s defenses for optimal immune system support.

Yes, there are many other immune system supplements that do an effective job of powering up your immune system, such as those linked to above, but for me Olive Leaf Extract and the mushrooms in ImmPower do the trick.
