Copper improves the number of white blood cells and the number supporting proteins that help the immune system fight infections.  In fact, a low WBC number (Neutropenia) in your blood and bone marrow can be a sign of copper deficiency.  Decreased immune activity has been scientifically proven in even minor copper deficiency.   Copper is important for both the acquired immune system, immunity we gain when exposed to a foreign organism, and the innate immune system, the group of cells we are born with to fight infection.




Selenium is essential to how immune cells kill foreign invaders. It’s important for both the acquired immune system, immunity we gain when exposed to a foreign organism, and the innate immune system, the group of cells we are born with to fight infection.  Studies suggest that Selenium might help prevent some infections, such as bacterial skin infection that often occurs with lymphedema and mycoplasma (walking) pneumonia. In addition, one study suggested that when geriatric patients ingested selenium supplements, their immune systems responded better to the flu vaccine than those who took the placebo.




Green Tea is important for the development of the immune systems Helper T cells (CD4 cells) which are the cells that can identify a foreign invader so other parts of the immune system know what to attack.





Echinacea purpurea- Echinacea is widely used in the United States to reduce the severity and length of the common cold and upper respiratory tract infections. Several laboratory and animal studies suggest that Echinacea contains active substances that boost immune function, reduce inflammation and have antiviral and antioxidant effects. Many professional herbalists recommend Echinacea to treat urinary tract infections, yeast (candida) infections, ear infections, sinusitis, hay fever and slow-healing wounds. One study suggests that Echinacea extract exerted an antiviral action on the development of recurrent cold sores triggered by herpes simplex virus when taken prior to infection. Today, people use Echinacea to shorten the duration of the common cold and flu and reduce symptoms of sore throat, cough, and fever. A review of 14 clinical trials found that Echinacea reduced the odds of developing a cold by 58% and the duration of a cold by 1-4 days.  It is also known to increase the actual number of immune system cells to fight against infection and because of its immune support, it is often used in conjunction with chemotherapy treatments.  Echinacea has also been found to protect against the effects of radiation on white blood cells in animal studies, thus improving immunity.










Chromium- Studies have proven that chromium can significantly lower fasting glucose and mean serum glucose concentrations in type two diabetic patients.  In those with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS), chromium has been shown to decrease insulin resistance, free testosterone, and BMI.




Garlic with Allicin-  Allicin is largely responsible for the pharmacological effects of crushed garlic. The medical effects of garlic can be found all the way back to the sixth century BC and is now known to decrease the length of the common cold.  The antibacterial effects of garlic were first described in 1856 and can actually be effective against bacteria such as, E.coli, Salmonella, Staph infections and more.  Garlic is also found to be effective against several forms of fungal and protozoa infections such as Tinea and Candida.  It’s also been shown to work against viral infections such as, Influenza A and B, HIV, CMV, viral pneumonia, and rhinovirus.

Golden Seal Root is native to North America and was used by the Native Americans for its many health benefits.  Mice studies show that golden seal root may be useful in treating allergies.  It’s anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties may be effective against certain viruses, parasites, and yeast infections.





Amla Berry – Amla Berries are a good source of Vitamin C, fights free radicals, and several bacterial infections such as staph and Cholerae.  In fact, the antioxidants in Amla berry are 200 times the antioxidant content of blueberries.

Astragalus-  Astragalus is considered to be something called an adaptogen which means it is a natural substance that helps the body stimulate its resistance to the effects of environmental, psychological, and emotional stresses.  It has been used in Traditional Chinese Medicine for thousands of years and was often used in combination with other herbs to strengthen the body against disease because of it’s antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. Studies have shown that astragalus also has antiviral properties and stimulates the immune system suggesting it may help prevent colds. In the US, researchers have looked at astragalus as a possible treatment for people whose immune systems have been weakened by chemotherapy or radiation. In these studies, astragalus supplements seem to help people recover faster and live longer.



Ginger-  Ginger is an excellent source of Vitamin C and has been shown to have antibacterial properties. It helps to break down the accumulation of toxins in the organs, particularly in the lungs and sinuses. Ginger also helps cleanse the lymphatic system which may help decrease the risk of infection.
