Immune Health

Strength is the Ideal State

The immune system is perhaps the most important body system when it comes to maintaining health and living a vibrant, active lifestyle. A healthy immune system provides multiple response layers against aggressive environmental factors. The strength of this barrier is influenced by lifestyle habits that can deplete the body’s reserves, such as stress, fast foods, and lack of exercise. Replenishing nutrients essential to healthy immune function can help, as well as ensuring adequate rest, relaxation, recreation, and social ties—all associated with greater vitality and longevity.*

  • Nearly 3 out of 4 of U.S. adolescents and adults may have insufficient levels of vitamin D.
  • Over 1 in 10 Americans may be deficient in vitamin C.
  • 2 in 5 older Americans may have diets deficient in zinc.

Intensive Immune Support on a Regular Basis*
Metagenics offers a variety of science-based formulas for cyclical or daily use to protect against environmental and lifestyle challenges. Some may benefit from higher levels of certain nutrients—such as protein, vitamin C, beta-carotene, selenium, and zinc—than a typical multivitamin or normal diet supplies. Others may benefit from herbal support for respiratory health. And probiotics support immune health by promoting growth of beneficial intestinal flora.*

Acute Immune Support for Occasional Use*
Metagenics also offers targeted formulas for short-term use. Herbs and phytonutrients provide specialized support when the body is run down. Mushroom extracts nourish an immune system under stress, while andrographis provides immune and respiratory support properties. And traditional Chinese medicine offers first response immune system support and safer nasal and sinus health support.*
