The body’s capacity to fight disease and infection lies within the immune system. This complex system is made of cells, tissues, and organs that work together to recognize, identify, and respond to infection or injury in the body. Due to the complexity of the immune system, there are multiple factors involved in maintaining optimal immune balance. In addition to maintaining a healthy lifestyle, incorporating the proper supplements into your routine can provide support for the numerous biochemical reactions that your body uses to fight infection.

The Adult Immune Support Supplement Kit includes 3 core supplements that support healthy immune function. There are 3 additional supplements included in this kit as an optional add-on. 

These 6 supplements are manufactured by Thorne and Metagenics and can be purchased at the Functional Medicine of Idaho Meridian Wellness Center and Boise Clinic supplement counters.

Adult Immune Boosting Supplement Kit

Zinc Bisglycinate

Zinc is required for the development and proper functioning of immune cells and is essential in moderating the body’s inflammatory response. Zinc’s antioxidant properties help mitigate oxidative stress throughout the body. Zinc Bisglycinate is a zinc chelate made of one zinc molecule and two (bis = two) molecules of the amino acid glycine. Chelated forms of zinc are better absorbed throughout the body.

D3 5,000 + K

Vitamin D supports proper immune function and has anti-inflammatory properties that help soften the body’s inflammatory response. It can help protect against respiratory infections and is necessary for blood clotting. It promotes cardiovascular health and immune function and has been shown to enhance the absorption and retention of calcium. This supplement includes bioavailable forms of vitamin K2 (menaquinone-7) to ensure that calcium is properly utilized and deposited. 

Ascorbic Acid

Vitamin C plays an essential role in immune function by increasing the number of white blood cells and decreasing the production of inflammatory molecules. It supports liver detoxification, maintains healthy levels of glutathione in the body, and contains antioxidant properties that help protect the body from heavy metals. Vitamin C also supports the energy producing capacity of the mitochondria. Ascorbic Acid is an encapsulated, high dose form of vitamin C.

Quercetin Phytosome (Optional Add-On)

Quercetin is a flavonoid that helps modulate the immune system and has anti-inflammatory properties. It reduces the allergic response by decreasing the release of histamine. It is a powerful antioxidant that has the ability to target free radicals and inhibit the oxidation in the body. Quercetin Phytosome contains quercetin bound to sunflower-sourced phospholipids, which supports proper absorption.

NAC (N-Acetylcysteine) (Optional Add-On)

N-acetylcysteine (NAC) is an amino acid that has anti-inflammatory effects. It is a powerful antioxidant that promotes healthy immune function and helps protect the body from toxic insults and oxidative stress. It also facilitates the production of glutathione. NAC supports liver and kidney detoxification and has been shown to relieve respiratory symptoms.

Meriva 500 (Optional Add-On)

Curcumin, the active ingredient in turmeric, supports a healthy inflammatory response throughout the body, including in the muscles, joints, GI tract, liver, brain, eyes, and nerves. It reduces joint stiffness and muscle soreness. It increases the body’s antioxidant capacity, stimulates healthy cholesterol metabolism, and supports the up-regulation of liver enzymes. Meriva 500 is a curcumin phytosome complex that provides better absorption than other curcumin extracts.
