Your immune system is a complicated vast network of cells, organs, antibodies, immune proteins and other tissues that helps keep you healthy and strong while protecting your body from seasonal and everyday threats.
Once your immune system encounters one of these threats, it naturally generates what’s called an immune response.
As B lymphocyte cells spot these threats, called “antigens,” they begin to secrete antibodies. These antibodies are special proteins that lock on to and deal with specific antigens during your immune response.
Without a normally immune system, your body would be vulnerable to these foreign bodies and external stressors that could adversely affect your health.
Some vitamins and minerals can help support healthy immune function.
- Vitamin C
Supports normal immune function, heart, vascular health and more.
A powerful antioxidant that protects proteins, lipids, carbohydrates and nucleic acids (DNA and RNA) from damage by free radicals and reactive oxygen species (ROS), which can lead to accelerated cellular aging.
Stimulates the production of white blood cells, especially neutrophils, lymphocytes and phagocytes, and promotes your cells' normal functions.
- Vitamin D
In addition to helping maintain healthy bones and teeth, vitamin D also plays an important role in helping your immune system function properly. This vitamin can have distinctive effects on both your innate and adaptive immune systems.
Second only to iron as the most common mineral found in your body, zinc is essential for the healthy functioning of all your cells, tissues, organs and bones as well as for protection against the effects of cellular aging.
Being proactive can make all the difference, especially during times when your immune system must meet challenges.
Traditional vitamin C has been typically plagued with reduced bioavailability and rapid bodily excretion, and oftentimes, digestive challenges.
In addition to vitamin D in the preferred form of D3 as cholecalciferol, and zinc, as zinc bisglycinate chelate, Vitamin C-PAK includes a special, uniquely enhanced form of vitamin C that helps to overcome these delivery and retention challenges.
Produced from an exclusive mixture of ascorbic acid, lipid metabolites and bioflavonoids, our Vitamin C-PAK formula utilizes a proprietary bioavailable lipid-soluble vitamin C.
The exclusive lipid-soluble vitamin C combination in Vitamin C-PAK provides one of the most advanced bioavailable forms of the vitamin yet developed.
The key to these enhancements are its fatty acids that allow ascorbic acid to enter cells more quickly and effectively. These fatty acids act as ascorbic acid carriers to enhance vitamin C bioavailability, tissue distribution and cellular uptake.
