Thanks to Dr. Bruce Miller and Dr. Frank Painter for this timely information.
The Department of Agriculture estimates that more that 50% of Americans are deficient in the following immune-supporting nutrients: Vitamin A, C, E, B-6, B-12, and Folic Acid, and that 73% of us get too little zinc. This is partly caused by food choices and partly because of how we grow and prepare out food. This is why a simple nutritional program has been shown to increase immune function even in individuals over the age of 65. So.. let’s review the Shaklee products that build immunity.
Vita Lea of Vitalizer – most of us do not get all the nutrients we need from our diet. A balanced and complete mulit-vitamin is the foundation of any nutrition program.
Nutriferon – Developed and extensively tested by immunologists in Japan, this proprietary blend of natural plants extracts supports and stimulates the immune system by increasing the activity of white blood cells and by inducing natural interferon production. It also optimizes the body’s immune response against environmental irritants and airborne particulates, as with allergies and asthma.
Sustained Release Vita C – For continuous antioxidant protection, this unique formula releases Vita C into your blood stream for 5 hours. Vitamin C protects against chronic infection, environmental pollutants, allergies, colds, flu, and slow healing times.
Vita E Complex – Vita E and selenium are natural antioxidants that help protect us from the cancer-causing oxidation that occurs in our body every day AND most of us don’t get enough of these essential nutrients from our diet.
Vita D3 - 80% of Americans are deficient in Vita D because of numerous factors, including geography (how far north we live), the pigmentation level of our skin, daily sun exposure, and our age. Vita D contributes to a strong immune system and supports normal cell function.
CarotoMax – Contains powerful phytonutrients found in fresh fruits and vegetables that are lacking in our diets AND they have been shown to significantly boost immunity, while reducing the risk for cancer, heart and eye disease.
Optiflora – Replenishes the beneficial bacteria that are damaged through medication use, poor diet, and low fiber intake. Shaklee’s patented triple encapsulation provides guaranteed delivery of these helpful bacteria to the intestine to improve your immune response.
Immunity Formula I – Combines water soluble vitamins (B’s and C’s) with fat soluble vitamins (beta carotene and vitamin E and the minerals most required for immune-competency (zinc, selenium, and copper). It’s the one stop shop of immune support for those who hesitate to swallow the multiple nutrients discussed in this section.
