Our response to winter ills and chills is largely determined on how well our immune system can cope. Deficiencies in certain antioxidant vitamins and minerals such as Vitamin A , Vitamin C, selenium and zinc can weaken our immune defences. At such times, we rely on the body's immune response to isolate and remove the cause. It is therefore important to naturally target the immune defences to provide as much support as possible.
Clinicians VirActive Complete provides the important nutrients known to support the immune response that may help recovery from winter ills and chills. Vitamins are supplementary to and not a replacement for a balanced diet. Always read the label and use as directed.
Adult dosage: Take one capsule daily or as directed by health care professional. Adjust dosage for those under 15 years. Take with fluid whenever possible.
Clinicians VirActive to support immunity
Clinicians have combined nutrients known for their action on the immune system. They include: Vitamin A, which acts as an antioxidant, which helps protect the cells against cancer and other diseases. This important vitamin also slows the aging process. Protein cannot be utilised by the body without enough of this nutrient.
Vitamin C, also know as calcium ascorbate is a water-soluble vitamin, which means it is not stored in the body & needs to be continually replaced. It plays a vital role in maintaining collagen levels, healing wounds, fighting infections & coping with stress. Vitamin C is the least stable of all vitamins and it is very sensitive to oxygen. This means its potency can be lost through exposure to light and air. In addition to these important things, Vitamin C fights bacterial infections and reduces the effects on the body of some allergy producing substances. For this reason, Vitamin C is frequently used in the prevention and treatment of the common cold. However, you should avoid Vitamin C when you have a cold - if you already have a lot of mucous, as this vitamin seems to produce more. Large amounts of Vitamin C are found in the adrenal glands and this vitamin is essential in the formation of adrenalin. Adrenalin is the hormone that makes us react in any situation. During stress, the level of this vitamin is rapidly used up. So if you are under constant or regular stress, it is very important that you take Vitamin C every day.
Selenium is an essential mineral found in minute amounts in the body. It is one of the essential body substances that can be used in a preventative manner for many diseases, including cancer, arteriosclerosis, stroke, cirrhosis, arthritis and emphysema. Selenium is a natural antioxidant that protects against free radicals and appears to preserve elasticity of tissue that becomes less elastic with aging. This is accomplished by delaying the oxidation of polyunsaturated fatty acids, which deal with the changes in hormone production and hormone receptors. All diseases that are associated with aging are affected by the workings of selenium.
Zinc has been established as an essential nutrient for humans in recent years. Deficient in New Zealand soils, it is vital for a strong immune system, healthy skin, hair & nails, for a healthy prostate gland, men and women's reproductive health and as a free radical fighter. Stress, illness and exercise can all deplete Zinc levels. Zinc is essential for the proper functioning of the intestinal tract. When Zinc levels are low, absorption is inhibited so that all nutrients, including zinc, are very poorly absorbed. Zinc is definitely one of the most, if not the most, important trace element all New Zealanders should consider taking. All of these ingredients can be found in this high potency immune formula.
