Chaga (Inonotus Obliquus) Extract: 30% Polysaccharides
This medicinal mushroom, hailing from the boreal forests of the Northern Hemisphere, is chosen for this blend – particularly due to its immunomodulating properties, High beta-glucan and Polysaccharide content. It’s well-documented in studies that it may support both underactive immunity and autoimmunity, helping to support a Balanced Immune System.* Supported Research 1–11 More About Chaga.

Reishi (Ganoderma Lucidum) Extract: 30 % Polysaccharides
You could easily call this worldly mushroom the King of all Immune-Boosting Mushrooms. The most thoroughly studied for its Adaptogenic and Immune-Modulating qualities, it contains both Beta-Glucans and Polysaccharides that help modulate low immunity and autoimmunity.* Supported Research 9,12–18 More About Reishi

Maitake (Grifola Frandosa) Extract: 30% Polysaccharides
Ever heard of maitake mushrooms? Also called hen-of-the-woods, they have amazing amounts of Beta-Glucans, which are beneficial to both an Overactive or Underactive Immune system.* Supported Research 9,18–33 More About Maitake

Ashwagandha (Withania Somnifera) Root Extract (20:1)
This herbal root is a long-hailed Ayurvedic tonic of India. Used as a nutritious food and tonic, it may have adaptogenic properties that both protect and enhance an overactive or underactive immune system. Further, Ashwagandha is an effective antioxidant, nutrient-rich, well-studied, and widely known for its ability to help restore and improve energy.* Supported Research 22,28,34–45 More About Ashwagandha

Astragalus (Astragalus Membranaceus) Extract: 30% Polysaccharides
Used for thousands of years in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) for helping support against colds, flu, and more. According to studies, the plant may help stimulate white blood cells, antibodies, and even interferons, all of which readily combat illnesses and viruses.* Supported Research 46–53 More About Astragalus 

Burdock (Arctium Lappa) Root Extract (20:1)
In many parts of the world, burdock root has been consumed as both a food and for helping restore strength, cleansing the liver, and improving overall health.* Some preliminary studies reveal that this perceived effect of the root on health may be because it boosts immunity. The root has also been studied for its potential anti-inflammatory and blood pressure-lowering effects, yet more properties that could be related to immune protection.* Supported Research 54–61 More About Burdock

Optimal Immune also includes the addition of piperine, the active alkaloid chemical found in black pepper. It immediately increases the bioavailability of the powerful compounds in these mushrooms and herbs so that you can feel the difference!*

What Customers Are Saying:

THE IMMUNE SYSTEM – KEY TO WELLNESS

Not many people realize that there is one underlying aspect of health that relates to all of Wellness: The Immune System.

We tend not to draw that important connection between immunity and wellness issues as often as we should, especially in the modern day-to-day. Still, it’s one of the most important aspects that impact our health and plays a bigger role than we think.

But what exactly is the immune system to begin with?

It is much like other systems in our body, such as the nervous, cardiovascular, and skeletal systems. It’s made up of our lymphatic systems, white blood cells, leukocytes, even our livers and much more.

Its purpose? To work hard to protect us from illness, weakness, and compromised function. It’s much like a source of reserves in our body – when reserves are strong, we handle health issues much better, and with greater vitality and energy.

However, when it Weakens – or, on the other hand, becomes Overactive – then we start experiencing those ever-so-familiar symptoms of wear, tear, and fatigue.

This is when we need to call on the power of more immune-specific, concentrated herbs, botanicals, and ingredients to get our immune systems back on track.

WHY FOCUS ON IMMUNITY? – A HOLISTIC APPROACH

Dealing with a wide variety of troubling symptoms, low energy, and struggles with overall wellness? Focusing on immunity first and foremost can be a great start to finding relief and getting that energy back.

In fact, targeting immunity first – instead of alleviating symptoms separately – is the very essence of the holistic health approach. This is because boosting your immune system can help you handle an array of seemingly unrelated issues, all in one fell swoop – such as: 

Common symptoms of an unhealthy immune system:

  • Autoimmunity*
  • Inflammation*
  • Brain fog*
  • Chronic fatigue*
  • Low-grade fever*
  • Increased headaches*
  • General malaise*
  • More incidences of colds, infections, sicknesses*
  • Stress, depression, anxiety*

Very often immunity is the root cause of these symptoms and may demand more care than the actual symptoms themselves – though in treating the immune system, these symptoms may fade away.

WHAT HAPPENS IF I STRENGTHEN MY IMMUNE SYSTEM?

In a few words: far-reaching, very beneficial effects. It’s that simple.*

The Immune System:

  • Helps Fights common illnesses, like colds and flu*
  • Supports the body’s ability to resist more serious diseases*
  • Helps Combat infection (viral, bacterial, and more)*
  • Helps Boosts metabolism*
  • Triggers and promotes fever to fight disease and infection*
  • Improves energy and vitality*
  • Helps Controls inflammation*
  • Maintains optimal blood pressure and cholesterol levels*
  • Helps Reduce autoimmunity (overactive immune system)*

Using a completely natural approach to enhance your immune system is much like strengthening your body’s own natural shield.*

STRENGTHENING UNDERACTIVE IMMUNITY*

In most cases, your immune system becomes “underactive” in the face of certain unhealthy obstacles. Your reserves start to drain, and your shield weakens and wears thin.

The result: weakness, more colds and illnesses, low energy, and fatigue.

The solution: forming better habits, improving your diet, supplementing with immune-specific herbs, and much more.*

Thinking of immunity simply as a reserve – or, a protective shield – makes it sound like an uncomplicated system in our bodies, more or less. While that is certainly true, that couldn’t be further from the complete truth – Immunity is far more complicated than that!

ALLEVIATING OVERACTIVE IMMUNITY*

Overactive immunity is the other side of poor immune health, and it is often quite misunderstood. Rather than picturing it as depleted reserves or a shield wearing thin, imagine it more like your trusted bodyguard: someone who is sworn to protect you.

But instead of just protecting you as it should by attacking invaders, it also attacks you and hurts you!

An overactive immune system is not weak, like an underactive one. It is in fact very powerful and healthy, doing what it’s supposed to do – in some ways.

The only fallback: it’s so out of control that it attacks your own healthy tissues too, not just the antigens, infections, and other factors it is designed to.

Overactive immunity is also known as “Autoimmunity,” and there is very little known about what exactly causes it or how it can be remedied. However, there has been extremely positive results from making lifestyle changes such as with foods, stress management, and adaptogenic herbs.*

While some supplements and herbs are known to “rev up” immunity and increase its function to aid with underactive immunity, with a more overactive immune system you’ll need to find supplements that are better at bringing it back to balance – not just magnifying its abilities.*

You don’t want to simply Boost Immunity. You want to Balance It, and that’s where Optimal Immune can be your ally in this approach.
