Vitamin A (as beta carotene) – Vitamin A is a major fat-soluble antioxidant that supports healthy immune function. This essential vitamin reinforces the production and activity of different types of immune cells that play a key role in the body’s natural immune response to foreign invaders [1, 2].
Vitamin C (as ascorbic acid) – Vitamin C is essential for life. It is an extremely important vitamin that provides powerful antioxidant properties and promotes healthy immune responses . Vitamin C supplementation enhances immune responses to stress by supporting an optimal balance of cortisol, the stress hormone that is released during difficult situations . In addition, this powerful antioxidant assists the immune system by targeting free radical toxins and oxidative stress, which refers to an imbalance of toxins and antioxidants in the body .
Vitamin D3 (as cholecalciferol) – Vitamin D is a hormone-like vitamin that is made in the skin following adequate sun exposure, but it can also be taken as a supplement. Vitamin D has a wide variety of benefits in the body including reinforcing a healthy immune system . This versatile vitamin helps the immune system by enhancing the activity of immune cells as well as the enzymes that convert vitamin D3 into an active form the body uses to make powerful proteins that target harmful invaders [6, 7].
Vitamin B12 (as Methylcobalamin) – Vitamin B12 promotes energy production and enhances nervous system health . Furthermore, Vitamin B12 boosts red blood cell, immune cell, and nerve cell health by heightening nutrient transfer throughout the body [9, 10]. Severe vitamin B deficiencies can lead to major health problems in the immune system, nervous system, and brain . Methylcobalamin is the bioactive form of vitamin B12 that the body easily uses.
Zinc (as zinc citrate) – Zinc is used by the immune system and it also provides antioxidant support. Adequate levels of zinc enhance the production and activity of immune cells . Taking zinc regularly and boosting the serving at the first sign of a cold, can also help shorten the severity and duration of the common cold . Zinc also has antioxidant properties that scavenge free radical toxins and minimize oxidative stress, which are factors that are linked to various health problems [14, 15]. The immune system is susceptible to changes in zinc levels, especially a zinc deficiency .
Selenium (as selenium glycinate) – Selenium is an antioxidant that has many positive functions in the body. It is essential for proper immune function. Selenium also helps regenerate glutathione, another important antioxidant that bolsters the activity of enzymes that heighten immune responses by helping expel toxins from the liver [16, 17]. In addition, selenium helps scavenge free radical toxins and other invaders to enhance overall health [18, 19]. Furthermore, selenium binds to mercury and other heavy metals, which helps flushes them out of the bloodstream and body . This blocks the buildup of metals in vital organs and fatty tissue where they can lead to health problems including skin, nail, and hair issues [18-20].
N-Acetyl Cysteine (NAC) – NAC is an amino acid the body uses to make glutathione, an important antioxidant. NAC supports respiratory and immune function [21, 22]. Taking NAC helps boost energy throughout the day, minimizing the sluggish feeling that often develops mid-morning [21, 22].
Organic Astragalus (Astragalus membranaceus) – Astragalus falls into the category of herbs called adaptogens, which help the body adapt to different types of environmental and biological stressors . Taking astragalus supports a healthy immune system. Astragalus reinforces the body's vital Qi, facilitates urination, promotes purulent discharge, and enhances soft tissue repair and growth .
Organic Echinacea (root) (Echinacea angustifolia) – Echinacea has been widely used for supporting healthy immune function . This beneficial herb enhances immune responses by boosting the production of immune cells that fight invaders linked to health issues . Echinacea also helps the liver naturally cleanse the bloodstream .
Organic Ashwagandha Root Powder (Withania somnifera) – Also known as ‘Indian Ginseng,’ Ashwagandha has been used in India for centuries to help boost energy levels and provide stress support [28, 29]. Ashwagandha also enhances cognitive processes, such as learning and memory function . This potent herb also reinforces immune system health .
Organic Elderberry (fruit) (Sambucus nigra) – Elderberry has been used for centuries to help maintain a healthy immune response . This potent botanical is an excellent source of invader-fighting antioxidants [33, 34]. It also targets certain invaders directly by blocking their ability to reproduce [35, 36]. In addition, elderberry bolsters the liver’s natural cleansing ability .
Organic Maitake Mushroom (Grifola frondosa) – Maitake is an important Asian medicinal mushroom with centuries of use. Extracts of Maitake have potent immune-enhancing properties . This well-known adaptogen also refines the body’s response to stress and optimizes internal pH, which are processes that promote better health [37, 38]. Furthermore, Maitake enhances the body’s innate defenses by heightening natural antioxidant activity that combats toxins and invaders [37-39].
Organic Reishi Mushroom (Ganoderma lucidum) – Reishi mushroom is traditional Asian medicinal mushroom that has been used extensively over thousands of years for different health problems . Historically it has been used to help bolster energy, immune function, and memory function . Reishi mushroom has unmatched potency and it contains high concentrations of active compounds, such as polyphenols, polysaccharides, and triterpenoids, that have powerful antioxidant and invader-fighting properties [41, 42]. The potent compounds are also described through research as “pharmaceutically active” .

Fillers: We do NOT use Magnesium Stearate.
VitaminSupport does NOT use any artificial fillers in our product. One popular filler, also known as a "flow agent", that is commonly used in supplements is magnesium stearate. This filler is used to easily fill the capsules during production. Some studies have shown that fillers such as magnesium stearate may reduce the absorption of the vitamins and nutrients in the body.
