ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

Echinacea has been shown to stimulate the immune system and may reduce the duration of colds and minor infections of the respiratory tract. One of the ways that echinacea works in the immune system is by increasing the number of white blood cells. White blood cells are involved in defending the body against foreign micro-organisms. Echinacea also stimulates a group of immune system cells called phagocytes, which engulf and digest bacteria or other foreign bodies.

Betacarotene is a precursor to vitamin A. Vitamin A is essential for the maintenance of healthy mucous membranes including the lining of the stomach and lungs. Betacarotene is an antioxidant that reduces the risk of cellular damage caused by free radicals.

Vitamin C is important to immunity as it is involved in the function of white blood cells and antibodies. It is beneficial when dealing with the symptoms of the common cold. Vitamin E supports immune function by increasing antibody production and lymphocyte function. Lymphocytes are cells in the body which produce antibodies to attach to infected cells. Vitamin E supports immune function via its antioxidant action.

Zinc is a mineral that is essential to good health as it is found in every cell of the body and is involved in many enzyme reactions. Adequate levels of zinc are critical for the proper functioning of the immune system. Zinc inhibits the growth of many viruses, including the common cold viruses.

Vitamin B6 enhances immune responsiveness.
