Pop and I have a nutrient dense, probably more so than the average Joe, diet daily. And, we supplement with these immune system supplements. Some daily. Some several times/week. You have to figure out the frequency that works for you.
While we sometimes get under the weather, get the bugs going around (with 14 grandkids, it’s inevitable), get depleted from work, travel, stress and just life, up to now, our intensity of illness has not been serious or grave. And, we’re grateful for that at the ages of 73 and 81. We don’t take our health for granted. We work at it every single day. It’s just not our suppements, it’s our committed lifestyle, so please read on for more tips!
Many people might not realize that the daily recommended levels of Vitamin C are barely enough to prevent scurvy. Not all vitamin Cs are real vitamin C. This Vitamin C Complex is comprised of three powerful sources of C. In addition there are antioxidants and phytonutrients coming from whole foods. What is so great about Vitamin C? Well, with increasing your intake and consistent usage, it’s been show to boost immunity and to help reduce inflammation levels.
We’re talking mushrooms. Eight high-quality certified organic mushrooms including reishi, the ‘mushroom of immortality’. Ingredients in the NeuroEffect have been show to boost immune system. They support the body’s ability to deal with stress and help reduce oxidative stress.
Organ meats are a superfood. But, in today’s American diet, it’s not frequent if at all. Liver (beef), and chicken livers, are nutrient dense organ meats, which I try to incorporate into our diets at least 3-4x month.
Scientists suggest that by eating organ meat, you can improve methylation, which helps slow down the aging process. Other things that can improve methylation, a biochemical process in our bodies, are:
- Eating lots of veggies, in particular dark leafy veggies
- Daily exercise of at least 30 minutes
- Learning stress management strategies, like breathing exercises and how to clear your head
Vegetables and greens are potent sources of immunity defense. If you’re not eating a lot of them, and I mean a lot, then you’re missing out on important immunity boosters. Pops and I eat vegetables and greens with nearly every meal, and, yes, including breakfast.
This Supergreen Supplement provides 23 certified organic superfoods that have a range of essential nutrients. And the supplement is made with antioxidant-rich spirulina, shown to boost immune functions and help increase white blood cell count after 6 weeks.

Immune Defense Supplement

It’s always important to consult with your healthcare professional before embarking on a new supplement regime.
Your immune system needs definite things to have the power to keep you healthy. First of all, a balanced diet that’s full of close to the earth foods and rainbow foods. It’s eating primarily UNprocessed foods. Don’t open boxes, frozen dinners, fast and quick meals. Forget eating out all the time. You’ll not get what you need with prepared food delivery. While you might use these as convenience ways to eat a few times, if it’s your mainstay of eating, then you might not be giving your system what it needs to power your performance.
Immune Defense Capsules
Yes, with the exception of the Supergreens, our supplements are dispensed through capsules. They’re easy to swallow and tasteless. We each decide when it’s best for us to take.
And, speaking of keeping your immune system boosted, consider regular exercise, adequate sleep, and proper hygiene practices are generally considered as excellent ways to support a healthy immune system.
