Twinlab’s new and improved Immunity Booster™ was formulated with clinically tested ingredients that help to support both your innate and adaptive defenses.*
To encourage general immune health, this comprehensive formula contains the antioxidants zinc, which affects multiple aspects of the immune system, from the barrier of the skin to cellular function; selenium, which helps provide antioxidant protection against free radicals; and vitamin C, which helps support the function of immune cells.* Insufficient vitamin C and zinc intake may result in less than optimal immune function.*
To help the body provide a more aggressive immune response, we have added the clinically-tested amount of 250mg of Wellmune WGP®, a unique beta-glucan that supports a healthy upper respiratory tract and promotes well-being during stress.*‡ Three capsules of Immunity Booster provides the clinically tested amount (250 mg) of Wellmune WGP®. Immunity Booster also features Echinacea purpurea, shown in clinical research to enhance immune support.* Three capsules of this formula includes the same amount of Echinacea purpurea (930 mg) used in these clinical trials.*

It's true that you are what you eat, but your health is also a reflection of what you do. That’s why making healthy lifestyle choices can drastically affect your ability to keep illness at bay. So consider the following to support your immune-system strength:
Even if you never eat junk food or miss meals, your body may still need a bit of help getting all the nutrients it needs to stay strong, because many of the refined foods in a typical Western diet have been depleted of various vitamins and minerals. This is where a good multivitamin may help. In addition, boosting your intake of the nutrients below may help prevent marginal deficiencies that could lower your immune system defenses, potentially making you more susceptible to infections:
Excessive stress may lead to suboptimal immune system function, potentially making the body less able to fend off everything from bacteria and viruses to serious diseases. Finding ways to relax is an important part of a well-rounded health program. Give the following a try:
Whatever you choose, look for activities—or nonactivities—that give you a real break from everyday work and home obligations.
Skimping on sleep can undercut your immune defenses, so be sure to snooze a full eight hours a night. If you can’t get a full night’s sleep because of time constraints, try to squeeze in a 15- to 30-minute nap during the day. Although not as beneficial as nighttime rest, if you are rundown, a nap might help stave off illness. If you have trouble falling asleep or staying that way, try some remedies for insomnia.
Healthy probiotic bacteria stimulate the intestine’s immune system and slow the growth of infectious organisms in the digestive system. Good sources of healthy bacteria are yogurt and other foods containing live cultures, and supplements containing 10 billion colony-forming units a day of acidophilus or bifidobacteria.
Miraculously, tonics are believed both to energize your system when it’s low and to protect it when it’s over-stimulated. That is the beauty of adaptogens, also known as tonics. Essentially, adaptogens may help keep the immune system in balance and help spare vital tissues from stress-induced damage. Examples include:
Suggested Use: To help maintain a healthy immune system, take one capsule daily. For more aggressive immune support, take one capsule three times daily.
