With winter comes the dreaded cold and flu season which seems to affect more and more each year. The common cold is caused by over 200 different viruses that can attack the upper respiratory tract. They are spread in the air from person to person and those with a depressed immune system or nutrient deficiencies may be more prone to catching colds. Other common causes of catching a cold include: lack of sleep, emotional stress, mold exposure, an unhealthy digestive tract, and traveling. Using antihistamine meds and decongestants just cover up symptoms and can cause other problems for patients with continued and constant use. Instead, I recommend that you consider taking Xymogen’s new all natural OlivDefense which was designed to help your patients be prepared at the onset and during immune challenges. OlivDefense features science-based, patented Immune Guard® blend plus elderberry and a patented olive extract to support the body’s natural immune defense mechanisms.
In a recent study, from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report, they tracked flu cases among 1,700 children and adults across the US. They found the flu shot was 36 percent effective overall, meaning it reduced a person’s risk of getting sick with flu and going to a doctor’s office by about a third.
But what is especially critical to point out is that the vaccine’s effectiveness against H3N2, the most commonly circulating strain this flu season, was much lower: 25 percent. And this finding squares with an earlier report from Canada, which found the flu vaccine was only 17 percent effective against H3N2.
OlivDefense has proven results! The Immune Guard material has been shown to:
-Decrease cold and flu symptoms by 32%
-Decrease the number of symptom days (duration of the cold) by 36%
-Decreased the need to take cold and flu meds by 58%
-Enhanced innate immune function by 28%
This formula also includes a standardized Elderberry extract that is high in vitamin C and other immune-boosting antioxidants. A 2016 study published in Nutrients demonstrates how elderberry supplementation can decrease the duration and symptoms of a cold in air travelers.
The last component in OlivDefense is a patented olive leaf extract with a high amount of hydroxytyrosol derivatives which has been shown to significantly increase intestinal immunity markers and increase plasma levels of C-reactive protein.
This formula has proven benefits and should be on hand before you need it. According to the CDC, 2-3 times each year millions of people are faced with a common immune challenge that may stress the body for seven to ten days. Why not decrease those symptoms, the duration by 2-3 days and lower the need for taking cold and flu medications? Suggested dosage is only 2 per day at the first sign of symptoms. OlivDefense 20c is only $34 to you, the patient!
