Immune Boosting Supplements

Dear PureBalance Community,

Like all of you, we are following the latest news and information surrounding the Coronavirus (COVID-19). With schools and restaurants closed, professional sports seasons put on hold, store shelves empty and conference and air travel being cancelled, we are all wanting the same goal-to stay healthy and safe during this unprecedented time.

We have made the decision to close our PureBalance office for the rest of March, but we will continue to receive your phone calls, emails and fulfill online orders.

Dr. Ingrid will also be available for virtual appointments. If you would like to schedule a virtual appointment, email [email protected] or call the office at 224-521-1212.

We know this situation can feel scary, and that you are likely a little overwhelmed with all of the news and updates. So, we thought it might be helpful to share a few immune boosting supplements we are using right now.

We've hand-picked a bundle of immune support formulas that can help the body naturally defend itself against an immune challenge. It is also very important to remember to continue to try and get adequate sleep, hydration, exercise and keep up a nutritious diet.

HU58 is one of the strains in megaspore. It has the strongest immune modulating and competitive exclusion properties of all the spores. It is crucial to building the immune system's defense against viruses.

Suggested Use: 1 capsule per day with food

MegaSporeBiotic

Megaspore reduces the inflammation associated with a leaky gut. This inflammation is the root of immune system stress and critical to heal and repair the immune system.

Suggested Use: 2 capsules per day with food

Vitamin D5000

Vitamin D3 has proven to be effective at reducing the incidence and duration of upper respiratory infections by modulating the immune response. Coronavirus is an upper respiratory tract infection.

Suggested Use: 1 capsule per day

Zinc

Zinc impairs the replication of RNA viruses which include the Coronavirus. Taking zinc will slow how fast the infection can take hold of your upper respiratory tract.

Suggested Use: 1 capsule per day, on an empty stomach in the afternoon

Vitamin C

Vitamin C as ascorbic acid. Ascorbic acid is suggested to prevent viral illnesses.

Suggested Use: 2 grams per day


Should you have any questions or concerns around COVID-19, please continue to refer to the latest evolving CDC recommendations or consult your physician.

Yours In Health,

Dr. Ingrid + Dr. Tom


Natural Solutions to Seasonal Allergies

Are you experiencing congested sinuses? Headaches? Watery eyes?  Uncontrollable sneezing? Allergy season is upon us, and millions of American’s are going to turn to Benadryl, Claritin and other harmful drugs in search of temporary relief.

Natural solutions for Seasonal allergies:

1. Neti Pot: Using a Neti Pot cleanses, refreshes, and protects the nasal passages to help  alleviate sinus and allergy problems. We recommend adding 2 drops of Oregano oil and/or special Neti pot salt to your Neti Pot.

2. Liver Cleanse: Congestion of the Liver is often associated with allergies...so why not cleanse your liver?  PureBalance has an easy to follow Liver cleanse program available to you...get started now!

3. Probiotics: Upwards of 80% of your immune system resides in your gastrointestinal (GI) tract! We highly recommend MegasporeBiotic to meet your probiotic needs. Research shows that the specific strains present in MegasporeBiotic modulates the immune response and improves the symptoms associated with allergies. MegaSporeBiotic is available at the PureBalance apothecary.

4. Vitamin D:  Do you know your Vitamin D levels? Exposure to allergens and irritants can trigger the immune system to produce chemicals called cytokines, which cause inflammatory allergy symptoms like sneezing, runny nose, and itchy, watery eyes. Research shows that healthy Vitamin D levels keep cytokines in control.  Low levels of vitamin D are not the cause of allergies, but controlling the symptoms of allergies is a lot easier when your D levels are in the healthy range.

We recommend Micellized Vitamin D3.  It is a highly absorbable form of Vitamin D that has been shown to be 4x more absorbable than standard Vitamin D supplements.  Micellized Vitamin D is available at the PureBalance apothecary.
