Immunity is the capacity of an individual to resist attacks by infectious agents from the environment thus maintaining health and well-being. Optimal functioning of the human immune system depends upon a variety of complex defence mechanisms which are the key to protection against infection, aging and cellular destruction. In the body's tissues, patrolling macrophages (large scavenger cells) engulf foreign invaders and call upon powerful T-cells to join the fight. T-cells, emanating from the thymus gland, escalate the immune response and secrete chemicals which disable or destroy the virus.
Their activity also alerts B (Bone Marrow) cells which are able to produce anti-bodies custom designed to destroy invading organisms. These anti-bodies also enable the body to "remember" a particular invader, producing a quicker and stronger response should that virus strike again. Immunofort includes a formidable combination of antioxidants all with powerful free radical scavenging capabilities. These include Vitamins A, C and E together with Selenium and Beta-Carotene.
A distinguishing feature of Immunofort is its combination of immune enhancing herbs. These include Echinacea, considered to be the most effective immune fortifying herb, Ginseng (two types are included) and Shitake Mushroom (to supply naturally occurring Germanium) Of particular importance are Arginine and Ornithine, stimulators of the Thymus gland, and Lysine, which enables B-cell antibody formation to occur. But as they are most effective when combined in a balanced formulation, Immunofort includes 10 amino acids. Immunofort includes the minerals Magnesium, Manganese, Iron, Copper and Zinc, all of which are essential for optimum immune function
