Wellness Formula is designed to support the immune system when under physical stress. It contains a powerful combination of herbs, antioxidants, vitamins and minerals formulated to boost your well being.
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.
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, mucous membranes, cell-mediated immunity involving T-lymphocytes and thymus support, and humoral (body fluid) immunity, consisting of B-lymphocytes and macrophage interactions.
Immune enhancing nutrients in Wellness Formula:
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.
Science now shows that emotional and physiological stress significantly impacts 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. The herb astragalus, and the minerals calcium and magnesium also support stress response.
While carrying out their immune functions, white blood cells generate free radicals, highly reactive molecules that can damage the very white blood cells that produce them. Vitamin C, a free radical scavenger, is concentrated in certain white blood cells, providing them with a built-in defense mechanism. Bioflavonoids act as cofactors that complement the action of vitamin C. Additional antioxidant support is provided by vitamin A, beta carotene, copper, selenium, hawthorn, and pau d’arco.
