#1 Immune Formula 2007 VITY Award
What has made WELLNESS FORMULA America’s number one immune formula? Wellness is uniquely effective because it addresses systems, not just symptoms. Source Naturals recognizes that nutritional symptoms are really body systems out of alignment. Wellness is a Bio-Aligned Formula that goes deep to the root cause of body system imbalances. It is expertly designed to support interlocking components of the immune system, including mucous membranes, cell-mediated immunity and humoral immunity. It also addresses interrelated body systems that impact winter health: antioxidant defense, stress response, and the respiratory system.
WELLNESS is a Bio-Aligned formula, designed to bring harmony to the multiple, interconnected systems that influence winter health. Here’s how.
A healthy immune system is critically important to help you withstand the ravages of winter. The immune system includes barriers that keep foreign materials from entering your body, such as the skin, mucus and the cough reflex. If these barriers fail, protection is provided by internal components. Immune system components addressed by WELLNESS FORMULA include protective barriers such as the skin and mucous membranes, cellmediated immunity involving T-lymphocytes and thymus support, and humoral (body fluid) immunity, consisting of B-lymphocytes and
macrophage interactions. Vitamin A is involved in T-lymphocyte activity, mucosal immunity and phagocytosis. Beta carotene is involved in thymus gland function and in white blood cell activity. Vitamin C is concentrated in the white blood cells. Zinc is found in specific protein compounds within the thymus gland that play an important role in the differentiation of T-cells. Research reveals echinacea’s ability to support immune function, specifically the activity of macrophages. Astragalus is a primary supporter of natural defenses with immunopotentiating effects.
Respiratory System—Cleansing Mucous Membranes
Our nasal passages, sinuses, throat and bronchial tubes are protected by mucous membranes, moist layers of connective tissue that are the first line of immune defense. Cleansing the mucous membranes is an important part of winterizing your immune system. Vitamin A is necessary for the secretion of mucin (a constituent of mucus) in the intestinal mucous membranes and for the integrity of connective tissue. The integrity of vessels and membranes is also supported by vitamin C, mullein, copper and zinc. Astragalus, isatis, garlic, goldenseal, Oregon grape and pau d’arco are herbs that cleanse the mucous membranes.
Respiratory System— Clearing Mucus
As important as mucous membranes are to the immune system, too much mucus can be a problem. WELLNESS FORMULA includes herbs that support the body’s clearing of excess mucus in the upper respiratory system. These include mullein, horehound, polygonatum, goldenseal, Oregon grape and pau d’arco.
Stress Response Mechanisms
Science now shows that emotional and physiological stress significantly impact the immune system. WELLNESS FORMULA supports our bodies’ overall response to stress. Siberian ginseng is an adaptogen whose key constituents, saponin glycosides, support the body’s stress response.
