Defense is an herbal formula designed to support a healthy immune system.
It contains herbs that help support normal natural killer (NK) cell activity and the balance of cytokines, which are the regulatory proteins released by immune cells as part of a normal immune system response.
The standardized herbs in this formula contain optimal and consistent amounts of the most active ingredients.
Defense combines herbs, mushroom extracts and other natural compounds to help the body maintain a normal immune system response. Some of its significant botanicals include echinacea, astragalus, elderberry, and green tea extract (EGCg). It also includes an impressive combination of the immune-supportive adaptogenic mushrooms like cordyceps, shiitake, maitake and reishi.
Together, specific cells, organs and other microscopic immune defense organisms make up the body’s defense system. Needless to say, supporting the immune system is essential to help protect against viruses, bacteria and other harmful encounters our body has to deal with on a day to day basis.
