Solstic Immune

Solstic Immune provides an immune system boost in a convenient drink stick packet. It boosts the immune system, stimulating natural killer cell and macrophage activity.  It can be used during the winter months, or whenever illness is going around to boost your immune system to avoid getting sick.  It can also be taken in the early stages of illness to speed recovery by increasing immune system activity. Take it whenever you feel you need to strengthen your immune system against infection and illness.

Here is a breakdown of the ingredients in Solstic Immune:

Vitamin C

This essential vitamin shields your body’s cells from damage by free radicals, viruses and harmful bacteria. It also facilitates the repair and growth of tissues, helps your body absorb iron and calcium, aids proper brain function, and helps rebuild bones and blood vessels. Many people have found vitamin C helpful in both preventing and speeding recovery from colds and flu.

Vitamin D

This essential vitamin plays several vital roles in the body, including protection from disease and regulation of calcium and phosphorus levels in the body. Without vitamin D, your body cannot absorb and use calcium and phosphorus. Vitamin D is low during the dark days of winter and taking it helps keep the immune system strong during that time.

Zinc

This essential mineral is integral to the healing process and helps promote a healthy immune system. Zinc helps your immune system defend your body from invaders such as bacteria and viruses. Research suggests that when zinc is combined with vitamin C, it helps the body recover more quickly from colds.

Potassium

This electrolyte mineral is vital to the function of your body’s cells and tissues. Potassium is involved in the maintenance of chemical reactions that do everything from providing energy to keeping your heart beating.

Elderberry fruit extract

According to research published in the July 2009 journal “Phytochemistry,” the phytonutrients and antioxidants in elderberry prevent H1N1 infections. The compounds prevented infection by binding to the virus and blocking it from entering host cells. Other studies have shown elderberry to be effective against several strains of flu virus, while shortening recovery times by 3 to 4 days.

Beta-glucans

 This is a soluble fiber and polysaccharide (sugar) whose antioxidant properties enable it to scavenge free radicals that may negatively impact your health. These compounds stimulate the immune system to aid in fighting off infections.

Echinacea root concentrate

This time-proven herb has been shown in numerous clinical studies to inhibit the growth of pathogenic viruses and bacteria. Echinacea is used to prevent and treat colds, upper respiratory infections, urinary tract infections and slow-healing wounds, while strengthening the immune system.

Arabinogalactan

This unique soluble fiber has prebiotic properties, meaning that it nourishes the healthy bacteria in your gut. This is especially important during illness when invading organisms and antibiotics can destroy beneficial bacteria and weaken your body’s immune response.

Blueberry, Red Raspberry, Cranberry & Blackberry fruit concentrates

 The phytonutrients and antioxidants contained in these berries have been shown to boost immunity and inhibit both viral and bacterial growth in the body.

Korean ginseng root extract

This adaptogenic herb has an excellent track record for stimulating the immune system and strengthening the heart – both of which are vitally important when it comes to fighting illness. It also boosts energy and promotes overall health.

scFOS

This patented form of short-chain fructo-oligosaccharides consists of carbohydrates that are beneficial to the gastrointestinal (GI) tract and the immune system. According to a 2009 study in the "Journal of Medicinal Food," they may even reverse bone loss. Feeding the friendly flora of the GI tract boosts natural immunity and resistance to disease.

Natural Flavors, Natural Citrus Sweetener, Stevia Leaf

Solstic immune also contains natural flavors, natural citrus sweetener and stevia leaf to give it a pleasant taste.

Suggested Use:

Empty the contents of one Solstic Cardio packet into 8–10 oz. of cold water, shake and enjoy. Take one packet daily. Caution: This product is contraindicated in autoimmune disorders.
