Hueytown, AL, October 02, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- According to updated research presented by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, more than 200,000 people are hospitalized from the flu and its complications each year. This amounts to missed work days, canceled plans and less-than-optimal health levels. What’s more, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) indicates that flu season is just around the corner—starting in late November and extending through March.
So exactly what causes most sickness? Researchers with the Mayo Clinic’s Clinical Immunology and Immunotherapeutics Program put it in simple terms: Either the immune system fails to respond in time or the immune system is attacked repeatedly until it essentially shuts down.
There is good news, though. Just in time to help balance and maintain optimal immune health, Health Resources announces the upcoming release of a significant, breakthrough formula that contains nutrients that the natural medicine community claims to be the most beneficial for promoting healthy immunity. Supporting the body’s natural defense mechanisms by supplementing with these beneficial herbs and nutrients may ensure you stay healthy and well.
The main nutrients contained in Super Immune5 Plus™
are astragalus, scute, Reishi mushroom, andrographis and isatis.
Astragalus is an ancient herb used in traditional Chinese practices that has been shown to support the natural immune-enhancing abilities of the body’s white blood cells by 83 percent, according to Prescription for Herbal Healing by Phyllis A. Balch. The Encyclopedia of Popular Herbs states that astragalus can support the function of and enhance levels of natural killer (NK) cells, which are responsible for patrolling the body in a search and surveillance mode to ensure the integrity of the immune system and its natural capacity to function at a high level.
The second ingredient in Super Immune5 Plus™ is scute, or Chinese skullcap. Multiple scientific journals including Food & Chemical Toxicology; Bioscience, Biotechnology & Biochemisty; European Journal of Pharmacology; and Experimental Biology & Medicine report that scute can help block inflammation-causing enzymes, reduce free radical damage, promote normal breathing patterns, protect nerve cells from oxidative damage and soothe occasional stomach discomforts.
The third key ingredient is Reishi mushroom, which has been scientifically studied to help promote optimal immune function through diverse cellular signaling pathways, as reported in the Journal of Ethnopharmacology. Results from a Chinese study published in the Journal of Medicinal Food, show that Reishi can beneficially boost the body’s energy levels and enhance the immune response.
Another immune-supporting ingredient contained in Super Immune5 Plus™ is andrographis. Conducted at the Universities of Exeter and Plymouth in the United Kingdom, seven double-blind, placebo-controlled trials evaluated individuals in need of immune support. Those who were given andrographis reported significant benefits in respiratory health, compared to the placebo group.
The fifth key nutrient contained in the formula is isatis. According to the Hebei Journal of Medicine, isatis has the ability to promote a normal, balanced inflammatory response while also possessing potent immune-boosting properties when it comes to supporting overall health and wellness. The journal also indicates that isatis can enhance the body’s normal production of NK cells.
Combining these five ingredients with quercetin, vitamin D and zinc, the new Super Immune5 Plus™ formula from Health Resources is now available for pre-order.
