Understanding the Immune System

Your immune system is a network of cells and organs that surveys your body for foreign substances, then responds to neutralize them as needed. Healthy immune function includes both physical barriers and specialized cell activity. In general, the immune system is on the job to keep the body in a state of wellness… and it works around the clock!

A healthy immune system is one that is neither over-stimulated nor under-stimulated. Various factors can contribute to immune imbalance: stress, lack of sleep, inadequate fruit and vegetable consumption, lack of exercise, or excessive exercise. So on the other hand, a healthy lifestyle can help your immune system stay balanced—think stress management, adequate restful sleep, a varied diet that includes plenty of produce, and regular moderate exercise.

Nutrients for Immune Support

In addition to leading a healthy lifestyle, vitamin and mineral formulations from New Chapter can support immune function and overall health and wellness.

*Vitamin C is a favorite vitamin for immune support.* New Chapter’s Activated C Food Complex delivers a probiotic-cultured form of Vitamin C that’s gentle on the stomach.

*Zinc for immune support, with complementary Elderberry, organic Eleuthero root, and organic Astragalus.

*Black Elderberry fruit has an extensive history of being used in the early stages of seasonal immune challenges.

Mushrooms for Immune Support

Mushrooms have long been recognized for their key role in supporting the immune system, especially Reishi—abundant in New Chapter’s LifeShield Immune Support. Like all of the organic mushrooms in our LifeShield mushroom formulas, Reishi is grown to its full life-cycle form to deliver the mushroom’s whole protective shield.
