Leanne James formulated this product with New Zealand immune systems in mind. She is aware that our soil is deficient in some key antioxidant nutrients, which play an important role in supporting a healthy immune system, with each capsule containing 70mcg of selenium, 15mg of zinc & 5000IU of Vitamin A.

Another important addition to this formula is zinc, also deficient in NZ soils. Zinc is known for its ability to fight disease and to protect the immune system, It is involved with the kreb cycle and energy production. A zinc deficiency is also a factor in stress, fatigue, susceptibility to infection, injury and decreased alertness. Energy production, protein synthesis, collagen formation and alcohol tolerance are all interfered with in a deficiency. Zinc levels are low during chronic infections, renal disease, cardiovascular disease, some malignancies and protein malnutrition.
Many people are unaware of the importance of Vitamin A in fighting infections. By giving strength to cell walls, it helps protect the mucous membranes against invading bacteria. Some people who do not respond to Vitamin C for helping with a cold, may respond to Vitamin A. Administration of Vitamin A has helped shorten the duration of communicable diseases (including measles, scarlet fever and the common cold) and infections of the middle ear, intestines, ovaries, uterus and vagina. Vitamin A, which controls cell differentiation, protects the epithelial tissues of the inner and outer linings like the skin, throat and lungs from becoming cancerous. Researches believe that Vit A counters the cancerous process by activating the body's immune system and prevents the thymus gland from shrinking.
