Immune Support – it’s at the top of everyone’s mind at the moment.
While most of us know the basics (such as getting enough Vitamin C via our diet & getting enough sunshine for Vitamin D) – but what about the importance of supporting your detoxification pathways for optimum immunity?
Let’s face it – our bodies are burdened by daily exposure to chemicals, pesticides, smoke and other substances – and unfortunately, getting enough vitamins and minerals daily isn’t a magic fix. However, supporting the clearance of harmful substances and supporting detoxification is one of the best things you could do for your immunity.
A high level of toxicity can affect immunity in many ways including:
The digestive tract being unable to absorb the nutrients the immune system needs
Increased inflammation from harmful compounds exhausting the body and the immune system
Hyper-reactivity of the immune system where it overreacts to the wrong things

If you feel you may be over-burdened and in need of additional support generally – or have simply had a recent over-indulgence in less-than-healthy food or drink – an inert binder like Enterosgel can help adsorb any harmful compounds in the digestive system and lead to their easy elimination.
By eliminating these compounds, it can make it easier for the immune system to get the nutrients that it needs to work properly.
