Your immune system is responsible for protecting the body against bacteria,
viruses and cancer. It creates antibodies, which react to specific foreign
agents. In most cases, an antibody is created the first time the body
encounters a germ. The antibody then remains in the body, preventing a
second infection by the same germ.

Vitamin A plays an important role in immune function and in maintaining the
integrity of mucosal and epithelial surfaces.  Vitamin C is arguably the most
important water-soluble biological antioxidant. It can scavenge both reactive
oxygen species and reactive nitrogen species and may also help to support
the immune system.  Zinc is a biologically essential trace element and is the
second most abundant trace element in the body.  It plays a role in immune
function, wound healing, reproduction, growth and development. Zinc
supplementation may improve immune function in healthy elderly individuals
who are marginally Zinc deficient.  Selenium is included for its crucial
anti-oxidant role.

Vitamin D also seems to have immunologic activity. In models of autoimmune
disease, vitamin D seems to act as an immunosuppressant. This might
explain why increased vitamin D intake is associated with a lower risk of
rheumatoid arthritis.  The anti-oxidant activity of Vitamin E makes it essential
to the immune formula.

Quercetin may have antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, antivral,
immunomodulatory, anticancer and gastroprotective activities.

Probiotics have a major role in immune function.
