Immunoberry is a unique blend of ingredients that can support your immune system and help you conquer environmental challenges. Our formulation contains:
Vitamin C: helps encourage the production of white blood cells known as lymphocytes and phagocytes that can protect the body against infection.
Vitamin E: supports your immune system by assisting with t cell production. T cells are the main cells that help to fight infection. Vitamin E is also a powerful antioxidant that prevent cellular degradation and aging.
Zinc: a key micronutrient and mineral that is essential for the body in numerous ways, it keeps the immune system strong, helps heal wounds, and supports normal growth. A lack of zinc can make a person more susceptible to disease and illness. Zinc activates enzymes that break down proteins in viruses and bacteria, so they are less able to spread. Zinc also increases the activation of cells responsible for fighting infection.
Elderberry has been used for millenia in folk medicine and is labelled a super antioxidant and infection fighting wonder. Common elderberry has a potent direct antiviral effect against the flu virus and inhibits the early stages of an infection by blocking key viral proteins responsible for both the viral attachment and entry into the host cells.
Elderberry extracts may help to prevent the early stage of corona virus infections, which includes COVID-19. Elderberry contains compounds which decrease the ability of viruses to infect cells. Elderberry is considered generally safe and in influenza B (cause of common cold), use of elderberry shortens the duration of symptoms.
However, as a part of its immune supportive actions, elderberry increases immune cell release of tiny chemicals called cytokines.
Specifically, elderberry increases the release of a cytokine called IL-1B which is a part of the inflammatory reaction to COVID-19 that can result in acute respiratory distress.
For this reason, to minimize the possibility that elderberry could aggravate the inflammatory “cytokine storm” associated with the more severe COVID-19 infections, it is recommended to stop elderberry at the first signs of infection (fever, cough, sore throat) and/or if you test positive for the virus.
As such, it is best to consult your primary care provider or physician before taking this supplement.
