Critical Dietary Supplement Support for Immune Health

a fork and knife on a plate with dietary supplements

Keeping your immune system healthy has become a vital public health concern over the past couple of years. When you consider that immune response declines as a result of stress and a poor diet (especially an overabundance of sugar intake), the need for supporting immune health is even more critical. Twinlab Advanced Immune Support and Reserveage Resveratrol 1000 mg can help provide that support.

Twinlab Advanced Immune Support

Twinlab Advanced Immune Support contains the following nutraceuticals which provide critical immune support as indicated.

  • Vitamin C

    Vitamin C promotes the activity of various immune cells and increased the SOD and catalase activities (powerful antioxidants) of immune cells known as lymphocytes.

  • Zinc

    Zinc affects multiple immune activities, from gene regulation within lymphocytes to the barrier of the skin, and decreasing oxidative stress markers and generation of inflammatory cytokines.

  • Selenium

    Selenium is helps form the antioxidant enzyme glutathione peroxidases, which influences the immune system and provides protection against free radicals and other damaging reactive oxygen species.

  • Beta 1,3/1,6 glucan

    Beta 1,3/1,6 glucan helps prime and strengthen the key immune function of neutrophils that now move throughout the body—and neutrophils account for 40-60% of all immune cells.

  • Echinacea

    Echinacea supports the immune system through the activation of white blood cells (lymphocytes and macrophages), and by increasing the number of T cells.

  • Vitamin D

    Vitamin D promotes the function of multiple immune cells, including B cells, T cells and antigen presenting cells.

​Reserveage Resveratrol 1000 mg

Reserveage Resveratrol 1000 mg provides 1,000 mg of trans-resveratrol per serving.

In human clinical research, this dosage significantly increased the numbers of circulating gamma delta T cells (functioning as a first line of defense and a bridge between innate and adaptive responses) and regulatory T cells.

Conclusion

Twinlab Advanced Immune Support and Reserveage Resveratrol 1000 mg can help support healthy immune function, which is a vital modern concern.
