Immunity is a blend of vitamins, minerals, and natural herbs and plant extracts specifically formulated to support the body's immune system response, which is best taken as soon as you sense you're coming down with something, and may be particularly useful for reducing the symptoms of common colds and upper respiratory tract infections.
Douglas Laboratories' Immunity contains Andrographis, for general immune support, particularly during the winter (you can read more about Andrographis paniculata here): Astragalus, for its antioxidant and immune-boosting properties such as stimulating lymphocytes and binding and activating B-cells and macrophages; Black Elderberry, which appears to have effective immuno-protective abilities, likely by supporting a well balanced production of cytokines; Garlic, which has antioxidant properties and supports normal immune function and host defense; Honeysuckle, which may promote the function of natural killer cells (NKs) by helping the production of natural interferon; Spirulina, which supports the primary immune response by stimulating macrophage functions, phagocytosis, and IL-1 production; Ester-C, the well-tolerated and readily absorbed form of Vitamin C to protect immune cells against free radical damage; Vitamin D3, which is involved in promoting macrophages' immune responses, maturing antigen-presenting dendritic cells, and activating T-cells; and Zinc, which also activates T-cell function, and influences Natural killer (NK) cell activity, neutrophils, and TH1 cytokines.
