Collagen is the fibrous protein component of skin, cartilage, bone and connective tissue. With age, our collagen begins to weaken and become less pliant. The result is dry, wrinkled skin.
Studies have shown that adequate collagen production can also help support strong coronary arteries, cartilage and bones, as well as improve the function of the organs, which are cemented by collagen fibers.
For the optimal production of collagen in the body, a continuous supply of vitamin C and the amino acids lysine and proline is required. Vitamin C and lysine are not produced in the body, so dietary supplementation with these collagen-building nutrients is essential to help keep your skin healthy and beautiful.*
Dr. Rath Healthy Immune Support Synergy Formula has been developed from the Immunocel formula.
Key Synergy Nutrients: Vitamin C, Lysine, Glutamine, Zinc, Selenium, Inositol, Astralagus extract, Quercetin, Kelp and many others.
Vitamin C: Helps in optimum blood cell production and inactivates free radicals. In addition, vitamin C also supports the production of antibodies and the function of white blood cells.
Zinc: Is essential for normal function and development of various cells of the immune system. It is an antioxidant and also helps in development of lymphoid tissues and the thymus gland, which are critical in healthy immune function.
Intrinsic factor: Intrinsic factor is crucial in absorption of vitamin B12. Vitamin B12 is necessary for maturation of red blood cells and it also helps nourish nerve tissues of the brain and spinal cord.
Glutamine: Lymphocytes are the key blood cells involved in immune response. Glutamine helps in optimal lymphocyte formation in the blood. Being the building block of an important antioxidant, glutathione, glutamine also contributes in the antioxidant protection system.
Iodine: It is important for optimum function of the thyroid gland, which affects our body’s defenses.
Astralagus extract: Astralagus extract promotes immune system health by supporting white blood cells.
Quercetin: This powerful antioxidant helps extend the antioxidant activity of vitamin C and helps support immune function.
Alpha Lipoic Acid: In addition to being a powerful antioxidant alpha lipoic acid also modulates the immune system by regulating the action of T-lymphocytes. Alpha lipoic acid works together with vitamins C and E to increase their antioxidant properties as well as increase glutathione levels in the body.
Selenium: Selenium is a component of many enzymes, some of which are powerful antioxidants. This mineral is required for maturation and proper functioning of neutrophils, macrophages, NK cells and T lymphocytes, all of which are important components in immune function. In addition, selenium acts with iodine in supporting thyroid functions, thereby affecting the immune system.
