|Blackmores ImmunoDefence - 60 cap
Helping you to support your body’s immune system, which fights off colds and flu
Blackmores Immunodefence™ is formulated in line with latest research and combines lactoferrin, which helps to boost the activity of certain immune cells, with zinc and vitamin D which may help to support healthy immune resistance.
Lactoferrin- is a compound that is naturally produced in the body by immune cells and it is particularly prevalent in secretions of the upper airways, eyes and stomach. Bovine lactoferrin supplementation has been shown to boost the activity of certain immune cells.
Vitamin D- The crucial role for vitamin D in the immune system's function is a recent discovery. A recent large study evaluating over 18000 participants found that those with healthy blood levels of vitamin D were less likely to have recently had a cold or an upper respiratory tract infection. Vitamin D has the ability to switch on special anti-microbial proteins that can help fight viruses. The cells that line the upper and lower airways can also secrete these special proteins as a defence against infection.
Zinc- affects multiple aspects of the immune system, and low levels of zinc may affect immunological functions adversely. Zinc is required for the synthesis of immune regulatory proteins and for maintaining normal immune function.
