Support healthy immune function in your body with Dr. Jill’s Immune Boost Bundle. This pack includes highly absorbed zinc, a daily dose of vitamin D3, 500mg of NAC, and vitamin C balanced with specific minerals to reduce the potential of gastrointestinal upset.
The advanced pack comes with two additional supplements to further enhance immunity. Dr. Jill’s Glutathione Essentials helps provide further support to the liver’s natural detoxification processes while ViraStat brings in a powerful combination of key nutrients and botanical extracts to all come together to further strengthen immune function.
Dr. Jill’s Activated Zinc
Zinc is an essential trace mineral important to many functions of human health. It plays a role in maintaining cellular metabolism and gene expression. Zinc is critical to a diverse group of physiological processes, such as immune function, insulin signaling, tissue repair, vision and neuro-transmission. It is second only to iron in worldwide incidence of deficiency, impacting 2 billion people in developing nations. Due to the wide range of functions regulated by zinc, deficiency, or even marginal deficiency, can have serious health implications.
Zinc is fundamental to the activity of over 100 enzymes and supports immune function, protein synthesis, tissue growth, DNA synthesis and cell division. During pregnancy, infancy and childhood, the body needs zinc for proper growth and development. Zinc also helps tissue repair and is important for adequate functioning of the senses of taste and smell. Daily intake of zinc is necessary to maintain adequate levels within the body because the body has no specialized zinc storage system.
Activated Zinc provides 54 mg of highly-absorbed zinc, ideally formulated using the amino acid chelate form of zinc (zinc glycinate) for enhanced absorption, optimal utilization and gastrointestinal comfort. Supplementing the right form of zinc is key to maintaining healthy levels within the body and compliance to a supplement regimen. Zinc plays a crucial role in boosting immune function, maintaining healthy tissue growth, and increasing the antioxidant reserves that protect the body from free radical damage.
Dr. Jill’s Buffered C Caps
Vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin most widely known for its role in supporting immune health. It provides potent antioxidant protection, as it helps combat cellular damage from free radicals caused by oxidative stress, thus protecting health overall. Vitamin C also boosts the function of immune cells and is a key nutrient in the synthesis of collagen. Buffered C Capsules are balanced with calcium, magnesium and potassium to gently deliver high-concentration vitamin C to reduce the potential of gastrointestinal upset.
Dr. Jill’s NAC 500
What is NAC? N-acetyl cysteine (NAC) is an amino acid that boosts antioxidant function and is commonly used as an agent to help clear sinus and airway congestion caused by mucus overproduction. NAC is a source of the conditionally essential amino acid L-cysteine and is a precursor to the tripeptide glutathione, an essential intracellular antioxidant, and therefore supports antioxidant and cellular detoxification pathways in the body. In addition, a growing body of research also highlights the role of NAC in supporting neuropsychiatric health. Each capsule of N-Acetyl Cysteine provides 500 mg of this versatile amino acid.
Dr. Jill’s Daily D3
Vitamin D is a steroid vitamin, a group of fat-soluble pro-hormones that are best known for the role they play in supporting bone health and aiding in the absorption of calcium and phosphate from the gastrointestinal tract. However, a growing body of research highlights its important role in supporting other body systems, including cardiovascular and blood sugar balance as well as increasing musculoskeletal strength, neurological and immune function enabled by its ability to target over 200 different genes throughout the body. At the same time, deficiency and insufficiency of this important nutrient have reached epidemic proportions around the world, making the achievement of optimal levels extremely important to overall health.
Known as the sunshine vitamin, one of the key roles of vitamin D is maintaining serum calcium and phosphorous balance. The body makes vitamin D by converting vitamin D2 to D3, or cholecalciferol when exposed to sunlight. Vitamin D3 is also the form that the body derives from dietary cholesterol. While vitamin D is available in both forms as supplements, studies have found vitamin D3 is the preferable form, as it has been found to maintain active vitamin D levels for a longer period of time.
The Vitamin D formula is delivered as D3 (cholecalciferol) for optimal use by the body, and is available in 1,000 and 5,000 IU capsules to meet a variety of individual needs.
Dr. Jill’s Glutathione Essentials
Modern lifestyle habits like poor dietary choices, lack of sleep, abundance of stress, exposure to chemicals, and exercise extremes can incur physiologic changes. Our bodies were designed to handle stress, detoxify chemicals and preserve cell function, but when the burden increases, those naturally built-in systems can’t keep up with demand. One of the most common physiological changes seen is the depletion of the body’s most powerful antioxidant, reduced glutathione. Glutathione has been termed “the master antioxidant” because of its ability to quench free radicals and protect cells from damage. It has long been thought that humans were unable to utilize preformed glutathione, but recent research proves otherwise. Setria®, a unique tri-peptide form of glutathione, has a molecular structure that effectively increases glutathione blood levels when taken orally. It is the only supplemental glutathione backed by a recently published human clinical trial that shows significant uptake of this critical nutrient.
Glutathione is the master antioxidant in the body and is heavily concentrated in tissues such as the liver, spleen and heart. Therefore, it plays a crucial role in immune function, detoxification capacity and protection against oxidative stress. The L-Glutathione formulation is preformed, reduced glutathione (GSH) and provides a 250 mg dose in a one-capsule serving.
Dr. Jill’s ViraStat
ViraStat includes a powerful combination of key nutrients and botanical extracts that provide support for immune challenges.
• Provides Support for Immune Challenges
• Supports Immune Function*
• Maintains Healthy Inflammatory Balance
The dynamic nature of the immune system means that all factors that affect health need to be addressed in order for it to function at peak performance. While vitamin deficiencies can compromise the immune system, consuming immune-supporting nutrients and botanicals can help strengthen the body’s immune response.
