With cold and flu season upon us, now is the time to start thinking about boosting your immune defenses. More than 200,000 people suffer from immune-related respiratory problems each year. Taking a daily dose of immune-boosting herbs or a supplement such as ImmuneDx can support your immune system and help fight off winter sickness.
ImmuneDx, a botanical-based immunity supplement by Plantiva, protects against illness by boosting the immune system in general and mobilizing it when a virus is taking over. Taking ImmuneDx at the first sign of a cold can reduce the severity and duration of cold symptoms. Plantiva also suggests taking ImmuneDx at times when your immune system may be compromised, such as times of stress, travel and seasonal changes.

Because Plantiva strives to make healthy, plant-based alternatives to chemical health products and over-the-counter medications, Plantiva only uses naturally derived plant ingredients in its products. Astragalus and Dong quai improve the immune system’s resistance to external factors, while a small dose of ginseng strengthens the lungs and respiratory system. Echinacea enhances the immune system, and the Chinese herbs Stephania, Epimedium and Eleuthero improve the circulation of stagnant lymph and blood that can lead to the aching and stiff muscles that characterize the early stages of illness.
Each bottle of ImmuneDx contains 60 capsules. ImmuneDx can be purchased for $22 at Plantiva’s online store.
