Acute Immune Formula is our go-to natural antibiotic. It contains over 20 of the strongest and most researched nutrients to assist your immune system in fighting of infections of all types.
It works to boost immune function, and also contains ingredients that kill bacteria and viruses. This two-pronged approach is what makes it unique, as opposed to prescription antibiotics that only kill bacteria, leaving the viruses untouched.
Part of what makes Acute Immune so effective in helping you fight infections is that its ingredients target both viruses and bacteria - prescription antibiotics only kill bacteria, not viruses. This is important because it’s estimated that 90% of upper respiratory infections (colds, cough, runny nose, sore throats, sinus infections, etc) are caused by viruses, not bacteria. In other words, if you’re sick, chances are you’ve got a viral infection that needs a different treatment besides antibiotics!
Acute Immune is best used for:
- Viral infections
- Bacterial infections
- Sore throats
- Yeast infections
- Stomach bugs
- Skin infections, infected cuts/wounds
Here’s how it works:
Acute immune contains 3 different classes of compounds to boost immunity and kill infectious agents.
Vitamin A helps to maintain sufficient levels of specialized white blood cells known as natural killer cells - these are your body’s first line of defense against infection. Additionally, Vitamin A helps boost the production of other immune chemicals that enhance production of B lymphocytes, another group of white blood cells that take over after natural killer cells do their job.
Vitamin C is best known for its effects as a free radical scavenger (cleans up the mess from infections) and its immune boosting effects.
Vitamin B6 works alongside vitamin C as a free radical scavenger, and low levels of B6 are associated with a weakened immune system.
Zinc is an important nutrient responsible for several immune cells(neutrophil, natural killer cell, and T-lymphocytes) function. It helps activate these cells in a very short amount of time.
Selenium also enhances immune response and plays a pivotal role in regulating immunologically directed inflammation, which is how the immune system kills foreign microbes.
Botanical medicine group:
Echinacea Purpurea is perhaps one of the best known and studied immune-boosting natural medicines. It’s effective against colds and flu, and also primes the immune system so it’s ready to fight when a foreign pathogen invades the body.
Olive Leaf extract is especially good at killing viruses, bacteria and fungus. The olive leaf extract in Acute Immune is one of the purest and highest concentrated forms available.
Oregano is a powerful immune stimulator; in one study it was effective at killing all 30 of the germs it was tested against. It also has anti-fungal properties as well.
Mushroom blend - Acute Immune contains six different mushroom species to specifically boost immune function. Mushrooms work primarily by ‘firing up’ the immune system - this means it’s ready to fight against all forms of infectious agents and even cancers.
Other botanicals include cayenne and ginger root, which are included for their ability to stimulate circulation (this helps to move immune cells about the body) and for their pain-relieving and anti-cough properties.
DMG (dimethylglycine) boosts the two main arms of the immune system, B and T cells. It’s an interesting compound in that it’s not plant derived yet it has widespread immune stimulating effects.
Beta 1, 3 Glucan is comprised of a group of compounds found throughout nature. These compounds can drive the production of monocytes and macrophages, which are the scavenger cells of the immune system.
Quercetin is a bioflavonoid compound (plant pigment) that has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.
Grapefruit Seed Extract works especially well in the gut; it can stop the growth of bacteria, yeast, and molds.
We recommend and use Acute Immune formula any time you’d think of taking an antibiotic. It works rapidly, and helps to kill the organisms that cause infection and also boosts the strength of the immune system so it can perform at it’s peak. Acute Immune is perfect for those times when you’re feeling run down and everyone around you is sick - it’s a great preventive medicine as well!
