Astaxanthin

Astaxanthin is the most powerful antioxidant known to exist. It is an anti-inflammatory carotenoid found naturally in algae and is what gives the colour to flamingos and salmon. It supports the immune system by encouraging the body’s natural virus and bacteria killing mechanisms and cell mediated immune responses. It also helps to reduce inflammation which may help to reduce cold, flu and hay fever symptoms, as well as, possibly speed recovery. A great natural remedy.

Olive leaf

Oleuropein, a key chemical compound found in the olive leaf, has powerful antioxidant activity. In fact, it’s said to be responsible for the hardiness and disease-resistant qualities of the olive tree. Another important component found in this wonderful natural remedy is calcium elenolate, a virucidal, bacteriocidal, fungicidal and parasitical. These two compounds, combined with others, make this beneficial nutrient a powerful tool in combating a variety of health issues.

This effective natural remedy has been used since ancient times as a treatment for a variety of conditions from diabetes to hypertension, and extract from olive leaf has been shown to fight viruses and infections swiftly and effectively. Dr Morton Walker, author of 29 books on natural health, is one of olive leaf extract’s biggest champions. As he states in his book, Olive Leaf Extract: Nature’s Most Powerful Antibiotic, ‘Olive leaf extract is nature’s answer to the medical profession’s creation of antibiotic-resistant bacteria.’

Reishi Mushrooms

Reishi mushrooms have been used for centuries as immune tonics in Traditional Chinese Medicine. In the world of natural health, “medicinal” mushrooms are known as some of the most potent immune boosters and disease fighters. Reishi has antiviral, antibacterial and antifungal properties and it supports the body’s immune system through the production of immune cells and activation of both the innate and adaptive immune system. Reishi may also be helpful in regulating allergies and hay fever symptoms due to its immunomodulating action, in addition to its high levels of lanostan, a natural antihistamine. Reishi stimulates the body to produce its own antioxidant enzymes in addition to having its own antioxidant properties.

Elderberry

Black elderberry, one of the primary ingredients in Bee Prepared immune support formulas has been used for centuries for human health and to boost immunity. The extract from the berries of the elderberry shrub have been used in folk medicine to treat influenza, colds and sinusitis, but only recently has the modern medical world recognised its potential in battling infection. It has the highest ORAC value (overall antioxidant capability) of just about any fruit or berry. Elderberry also contains anthocyanins, which have an anti-inflammatory effect, ideal for helping reduce aches, pains and fevers, including the headaches that often accompany the common cold and allergies such as hay fever.
