This product is designed to nutritionally support the natural immune system of the body with emphasis on supporting the healthy functioning of the sinuses. The mucous membranes are the first line of defence in our immune systems for the air we breathe through our noses. As such, they trap a lot of particulate matter, that create oxidative stress. This Stress-induced mucus often drains into the stomach, where it must be neutralized by the antioxidants. Excessive drainage of mucus can be a source of stomach irritation when it overwhelms the antioxidant systems present.
The botanical blend and the vitamin C in this product are intended to provide a potent blend of plant and algal antioxidants to locally offset some of the oxidative stress associated with sinus and mucus drainage. These botanicals also have reported benefits for general immune support. Many of these compounds are also absorbed systemically, potentially offsetting the net oxidative stress on the entire body. In addition, ginger has been reported to soothe the stomach and may be supportive in the presence of any stomach irritation associated with excessive sinus drainage.
The enzyme blend in this product is intended to nutritionally support healthy sinuses through both systemic enzymatic antioxidant support and through support of healthy immune responses.
GINGER has been used in foods and as a traditional remedy since at least the time of the ancient Greeks to calm queasy tummies, aid in digestion and support respiratory health. Extracts of ginger are known to contain numerous antioxidants, phytochemicals and enzymes.
QUERCETIN is a bioflavonoid. Bioflavonoids are antioxidant plant compounds known to enhance the absorption of vitamin C, inhibit the breakdown down of connective tissue, and counter oxidative stresses
