The best supplement for preventing colds naturally!
BioCeuticals ArmaForce the best supplement for preventing colds naturally!
What is ArmaForce?
ArmaForce is a potent blend of herbal and nutritional superstars: Andrographis, echinacea, olive leaf extract, vitamin C and zinc (these ingredients explained in more detail below). It's a powerful immune booster.
The ingredients are specially chosen for their properties to help reduce symptoms and causes of colds and mild upper respiratory tract infections.
How does it work?
I am a strong supporter of natural health. It annoys me when doctors overprescribe antibiotics and don't look at the patients' history/wellness from a holistic perspective. Antibiotics often overprescribed for basic illness. They often won't even help to treat as they are viral in origin (antibiotics work against bacteria, not viruses, and there were nothing doctors that they could suggest taking as an antiviral.
Armaforce works so well as the ingredients are potent antibacterial AND antiviral.
Let's take a look at each ingredient:
Traditionally used in Ayurveda and TCM, Andrographis is also known as "The King of Bitters". Not only is it a potent antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal agent, but it's also a potent anti-inflammatory, significantly lowering IL-1b.
It has a massive range of health benefits; however, the King of Bitters label serves as a warning – large doses can cause gastro issues as well as loss of taste (which I found out the hard way, but that's a story for another day!) Don't let this put you off it, though; this means the supplement should only be used when needed, and if you start to have any related side effects, then stop taking it!
Olive leaf extract
Olive leaf is robust thanks to its high content of polyphenols (antioxidants), including Oleuropein. Antioxidants are vital for assisting the body in fighting harmful free radicals and protecting against heart disease.
It's also antibacterial, antifungal and antiparasitic, and anti-inflammatory, which is why it's so beneficial against common infections. Plus, it also has a range of other health benefits.
Echinacea is another potent antimicrobial, especially antiviral, against viruses with cell membranes such as rhinovirus, influenza, coronavirus, respiratory syncytial virus, and herpes simplex. It works to inhibit inflammatory molecules (IL-6 & IL-8) in the lungs, which also works to reduce mucus and boost the immune system.
Another well known immune-boosting supplement to take when you're getting sick, as it helps to prevent the length and severity of colds. It's easy to see why Vitamin C included in the ArmaForce team.
High doses of Vitamin C can interfere with the pill, however, so be careful of your dose if you're on the pill and also if you're taking any other supplements containing Vitamin C.
Zinc is another traditional immune booster and works well with Vitamin C. Like Vit C; it also helps to reduce the duration of colds.
Take two ArmaForce tablets twice a day until you feeling better. You can also take one per day after as a maintenance dose; however, this leads to tasting loss issues in some people. Remember, herbal supplements can also still interfere with traditional medication, so make sure you check everything you take with your medical adviser.
