Immune System SOS
Congaplex is excellent at helping feed the immune system the material it needs to increase overall function. A healthy, well-fed immune system can better fight congestion, infection, and reduce fever. Congaplex contains a blend of 4 unique Standard Process products:
- Cataplex A-C – containing whole food sources of vitamins A and C, essential for a healthy immune system
- Thymex – contains the cytosol extract of the thymus gland, essential for quick acting immune function
- Calcium Lactate – contains ionizable calcium that can quickly be used in the body, especially by the phagocytes (who attack and eat dying and inflammatory cells)
- RNA – a whole food based source of ribonucleic acid which supports cell growth by activating protein synthesis
Andrographis Complex is an excellent partner to Congaplex because it enhances immune function. The foods in Congaplex feeds the immune system, the herbs in Andrographis Complex enhances the immune system. Andrographis Complex is a blend of three herbs:
- Echinacea – contains powerful alkylamides which interact with immune receptors
- Holy Basil – is known to enhance certain types of phagocytes. Phagocytosis is a process by which certain white blood cells engulf and destroy foreign invaders.
- Andrographis – is known as the “king of bitters,” excellent at helping maintain a healthy upper respiratory tract
*NOTE: Andrographis is not allowed if pregnant or breastfeeding, in that case, stick with just the Congaplex instead.
