Your immune system works around-the-clock to fight off illness and infection – and it doesn’t always get the help it needs. Whether you’re dealing with stress at the office, at home, or from strenuous exercise, over time, stress may suppress your immune system. Enter TB12 Protect!
Stress-induced inflammation may overstimulate your immune response, while high-levels of cortisol may prevent some immune cells from identifying these so-called "outside threats." These factors may not only leave your body vulnerable, but have been shown to cause fatigue and tension. We created TB12 Protect to support you during times of stress and to provide energy and tension assistance.
Protect helps your immune system recover from a variety of stressors and enhance key immune functions. The ingredients in Protect help aid a healthy immune response during times of physical stress to keep you performing at your best.
Here are 5 of our favorite immune-supporting benefits of TB12 Protect:
1. Clinically-Studied Ingredients
The five ingredients in Protect--Beta Glucan, Larch Tree Extract, Elderberry, Zinc, and Vitamin C--all play a role in supporting your overall health. Beta Glucan works under times of stress to aid a healthy immune response, Larch Tree Extract provides a natural source of dietary fiber, Elderberry is packed with antioxidants and vitamins to support your immune system, Zinc is an essential mineral shown to play an important role in your body’s immune response, and Vitamin C is an immune-supporting essential vitamin to support you following physical stress.
2. Daily Support For a Healthy Immune Response
Protect provides essential vitamins and minerals with antioxidant properties so you can keep going and make the most of your day. Elderberry Powder, a key ingredient in Protect, has been shown to support the immune system due to its high levels of antioxidant activity.
3. Works During Times of Stress
Stressful situations can leave our bodies more susceptible to infections and leave us at risk for illness. Vitamin C, Zinc, and Beta Glucan have all been shown to support our bodies during times of physical stress.
4. Aids Recovery Following Exercise
High-intensity exercise and prolonged training has been shown to reduce antibody production within 1 hour of training, and for up to 72 hours post-exercise. This period of time after exercise where the body’s antibody production is reduced leaves athletes especially susceptible to respiratory infections, as this hinders the immune system’s ability to fight off infection. In one study, it was shown that Beta Glucan, a key ingredient in Protect, may have the potential to support immune response following strenuous exercise.
5. Filled With Essential Vitamins and Minerals
Both Zinc and Vitamin C are well-researched essential vitamins and minerals consumed in a healthy diet. Zinc is traditionally found in animal-based products such as beef and pork. Zinc can be hard to incorporate into a plant-based diet but is known to support the immune system. Vitamin C can be found in a variety of fruits and vegetables and is incredibly important for immune health.
