Vitamins for Immunity
Immu-Stay – Healthy Immune System Support
This formula was developed by xtendlife™ in order to offer an extra boost for people who may be faced with increased external stressors , such as frequent travel, above average viral exposure, lack of rest, and/or seasons associated with influenza and common cold proliferation. It is one of the highest quality vitamins for immunity available today.
If taken in conjunction with a daily dosage of one of the Total Balance Formulas, Xtend Life recommends that you only take 3 tablets of Immu-Stay a day during those times of added immunological stress. However, if you choose to only supplement with Immu-Stay than the daily dosage amount is 6 tablets a day. It also combines well with xtendlife’s Omega 3/DHA range.
Immu-Stay includes the old standbys, such as Vitamin C and Zinc, but it also includes more rare actives that have been found to play powerful roles supporting the immune system, such as:
Andrographis is an immunostimulant derived from the leaf and rhizome of the plant. There is evidence that taking Andrographis on a preventative basis for 2 months or longer may dramatically decrease the risk of developing a cold by about 50%. Other preliminary evidence also suggests that Andrographis might have a stabilizing effect on mast cells, which are part of the immune system and rich in histamine and heparin properties, contributing to effective anti-allergy activity.
Olive Leaf extract includes oleuropein, which has bacteriostatic (halting bacterial reproduction) and antioxidant activity. This makes it helpful in preventing bacterial infections, yeast infections, and urinary tract infections.
Eleuthero extract, otherwise known as Siberian Ginseng, is an adaptogen that works with the body subtly and systemically in order to help it better adapt to changes in both the environment and regular bodily functions by helping the body’s natural stress response be more efficient.
Turmeric is a very powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant herb, which has been observed to induce apoptosis in cancer cells. This means it induces the natural death pattern for a cell as opposed to causing necrosis, which is the “traumatic” death of a cell. In a human scope, the difference would be to die naturally from old age as opposed to a sudden violet death. Induced apoptosis in cancer cells offers a huge advantage because the cell breaks down into fragments called apoptotic bodies that phagocytic cells are able to engulf and quickly remove. This is unlike necrosis, which causes the contents of the cell to “bleed-out” or spill onto surrounding cells causing damage and potentially initiating angiogenesis, or the spread of cancer cells.
Quercetin and Black Cumin extract have antihistamine properties. Some testimonials claim that in combination with other anti-histamine nutraceuticals, Quercetin has been effective at curing severe “lifetime” allergies.
DIM or 3,3-Diindolylmethane is a natural substance that is produced when the body breaks down a compound found in cruciferous vegetables, which has been observed to play a role in cancer prevention.
Bromelain is a digestive enzyme sourced from the stem of the pineapple plant. It is known as a digestive aid and boosts anti-inflammatory properties. xtendlife™ utilize this enzyme to enhance the bioavailability of the other actives included in the formula.
For anyone suffering from allergies or faced with heightened external stressors, we give ImmuStay a high recommendation. While certain nutraceuticals/herbals are effective at boosting the body’s immune system or speeding the recovering from ailments, the unique combination of ingredients in ImmuStay make for one of the best preventive remedies that we’ve come across.
