Your immune system is your body's first line of defense against disease-causing bacteria and viruses.

Think of it as your body’s security guard, keeping an eye out for intruders and sounding the alarm when they encounter any pathogens or viruses. The health of your immune system can considerably reduce the odds of you getting sick. It can fight colds, cough and chest congestion, and also helps to avoid bigger, more serious diseases. Stress, anxiety, lack of sleep, a poor diet, and low serotonin levels can all negatively affect your immune system.(1)(2)(3)

Turmeric is the Ultimate Whole-Body Immune Protection Supplement.

Turmeric has shown to be one of the best foods for maintaining, protecting, and boosting immunity. The proven health benefits of turmeric help to support the immune system’s protective capabilities to keep illnesses and viruses at bay.

Antiviral

Turmeric has been shown to act against various important human pathogens like the influenza virus, hepatitis C virus, HIV and strains of Staphylococcus, Streptococcus, and Pseudomonas.(5)(6)(7)(8)

Anti-inflammatory

Chronic inflammation can lead to an overactive immune system and contributes to many common diseases. Turmeric is most known for its anti-inflammatory properties.

Antibacterial

Turmeric and curcumin have strong antibacterial effects. They can reduce the growth of many disease-causing bacteria, including Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus).(10)

Antimicrobial

In studies assessing minimum inhibitory concentrations for various pathogens, turmeric demonstrated antimicrobial effects against a gamut of bacteria, such as Escherichia coli. Turmeric is so effective that it has even been considered as a candidate to impregnate clothes for antimicrobial benefit.(11)

Antioxidant

Curcumin, the active ingredient in turmeric, has powerful antioxidant effects. It neutralizes free radicals on its own but also stimulates your body's own antioxidant enzymes. Your immune system needs to maintain a certain balance of free radicals and antioxidants in order to fight infection.(12)

The proven health benefits of turmeric help to support the immune system’s protective capabilities to keep illnesses and viruses at bay.

Manage Your Body’s Stress and Immune Response.

Research shows that stress is responsible for approximately 90% of all illnesses and diseases.

Ongoing stress makes us susceptible to illness. The brain sends defense signals to the endocrine system, which then releases an array of hormones that not only gets us ready for emergency situations, but decreases our immunity at the same time.

Adaptogens are plants and herbs that help the body cope with stressors, whether physical, emotional or biological.(17)

What do adaptogens do?

Adaptogens help our bodies manage stress

By strengthening our stress glands, called adrenals, our stress levels can be better managed.(18)

Adaptogens fight off bacteria and virus causing pathogens

Stimulate white blood cells (called macrophages) responsible for destroying pathogens such as bacteria and viruses.(19)

Adaptogens balance hormones to support immune function

Boost immunity by balancing the endocrine (stress hormone) system.(20)

Adaptogens are known for their ability to manage your stress levels.

More specifically research shows that they support adrenal functions, help cells to use oxygen more efficiently and increase cellular respiration.

In addition, scientists are actively studying chronic feelings of loneliness (or isolation) that can contribute to more psychological stress which can affect your immunity. A lack of social support or a cause to withdraw from social ties can be stressful, and hurt the body's ability to fight infection. (22)

Fight off bacteria and virus causing pathogens by stimulating white blood cells (called macrophages) responsible for destroying pathogens such as bacteria and viruses.

Balance hormones to support immune function: Boost immunity by balancing the endocrine (stress hormone) system.

Improve Gut Health, Improve Immune System.

Few people realize that a significant portion of the immune system is directly related to gut health. An unbalanced diet, lack of exercise, certain medications, stress, and poor sleep habits all contribute to an unhealthy gut.

Probiotics in the gut tract help to reinforce the barrier function of the intestinal lining, lowering the chance of bacteria in the intestines entering into the bloodstream. The functions of your gut include ridding the body of waste, absorbing essential nutrients, and distributing essential elements throughout.(15)

Healthy gut function is essential for the immune system to operate properly, and helps to keep the body free of bacteria and viruses. Good gut bacteria protect us by strengthening the gut wall, and regulating our body’s immune response.

The important functions
of probiotics in the gut: (16)

  • Restores your gut with good bacteria (probiotics)
  • Reduce the bad bugs, drugs and food allergens
  • Replace needed enzymes, fiber and prebiotic
  • Repairs the gut lining

Supports healthy gut function which is essential for the immune system to operate properly, and helps to keep the body free of bacteria and viruses. Good gut bacteria protect us by strengthening the gut wall, and regulating our body’s immune response.
