The Immune Builder

The bottom line for superior health is to build a superior immune system. The Immune Builder is a potent blend of super herbs that act in synergy with your body to stimulate its natural defenses.

Astragalus is one of the great tonic herbs that tonifies the vital Qi of the body as well as generating blood and fluids. It is an important herb for maintaining a healthy immune system. Astragalus also enhances the function of the skin to eliminate toxins. As an energizer, astragalus is well-known for its strengthening effects on the outside of the body, in particular the musculature.

Lysine is an essential amino acid required for growth. Lysine works with other essential amino acids to maintain growth, lean body mass, and the body's store of nitrogen. Lysine has many functions in the body because it is incorporated into many proteins, which are used for a variety of purposes.

Most people, including vegans, consume adequate amounts of lysine. However, vegans whose diets contain large amounts of grains and only minimal amounts of beans could become lysine deficient. Athletes involved in frequent vigorous exercise also have an increased need for essential amino acids. Lysine supplementation has been shown to increase the absorption and retention of calcium.

Betaine is a methyl donor, which means that betaine carries and donates methyl molecules in the body to help make chemical processes work. Donation of methyl molecules is involved in healthy liver function and cellular reproduction. Betaine also helps the body make carnitine.
