Herbalife Immunity Essentials review: Is it the best immune booster?

Editor’s  Note:- Based on the ingredients, I think the Herbalife Immunity Essentials doesn’t seem to be a very potent immune booster, however, the ingredient Saccharomyces cerevisiae seems to be quite exciting.Other Herbalife immune booster supplements like “Total Defense” also are decent.

However, my recommendations for best immune booster rests on Athletic Greens and P3-OM (which I believe is the best probiotic for enhancing immunity). In this post, I compare Probioslim and P3-OM.

If you’re unaware of Athletic Greens then it is an all in one nutrition & immunity boosting supplement that includes a variety of nutrient dense ingredients such as antioxidants, probiotics and vegetables. With all the new immune booster supplements that are hitting the market it’s going to be more important now than ever to make sure you’re spending your hard earned money on a quality product and I hope through this review you’ll be able to decide if this is going to be the right product for you.

Saccharomyces cerevisiae Induces Immune Enhancing and Shapes Gut Microbiota in Social Wasps. Trained immunity is the enhanced response of the innate immune system to a secondary infection after an initial encounter with a microorganism. Previous studies performed in S. cerevisiae  have contributed to scientists’s understanding of important cellular processes such as the cell cycle, aging, and cell death. Read more.

In ancient Greece, Rosemary was used as a magic plant to improve memory. In the 16th century, Rosemary was widely used as a disinfectant and the herb was burned in hospitals to kill germs. It was also used as a medicine to relief gas, indigestion, toothache, headache, coughs and even baldness! Nowadays, Rosemary extract is used in making tinctures and insect repellents.
Rosemary is a rich source of antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds, which are thought to help boost the immune system and improve blood circulation. Laboratory studies have shown rosemary to be rich in antioxidants, which play an important role in neutralizing harmful particles called free radicals.

Stevia is an herb originally from Paraguay. South Americans use it as a sweetener and also for medicinal purposes. This herb is anywhere from 30 to 100 times sweeter than sugar. Stevia does not affect the blood sugar levels of most diabetics. Stevia also does not feed fungus in the intestines like sugars do.

Stevia has a strong, sweet flavor that can overwhelm a recipe, so it should be used sparingly. Because you only use such a small amount at a time, recipes must be adjusted for the lack of bulk.  I think it’s just added to the supplement for its sweetening taste.

So, why you need an immune booster like Herbalife Essentials or Athletic Greens or Others

Down with the sickness once again? Flu, cough, and cold may be among the simplest illnesses that you might encounter, but they usually bring a lot of troubles with them-from headaches that won’t just go away, constant sneezing, runny nose, weakness, and mood problems. Well, you really don’t have to endure all these. By packing up on immune boosters and adjusting your lifestyle, you can shield yourself from all the bacteria/viruses that cause these health troubles.

With the advent of new viral diseases like the covid-19 now, immune boosters are even getting more important and crucial now.

What Are Immune Boosters?

Immune boosters are those that strengthen the immune system to help it fight disease-causing elements like bacteria & viruses. By incorporating them in your daily routine, you’ll have less chances of getting sick. These boosters primarily cover the foods that you incorporate in your daily diet, as well as your daily habits. By making some adjustments in your lifestyle and adding up on those things that will protect your immune system, you’ll be able to enjoy a stress- and illness-free life.

Starting the adjustments in your daily routine need not be abrupt. Simply incorporate one immune-boosting element at a time until you finally get used to it. The simplest way to begin with your lifestyle adjustment is to do some addition and subtraction in your daily diet and habit.

On your diet. More water and more Vitamin C are a must. Add up on your intake of raw foods as well. Fruits, vegetables, and foods rich in fiber are helpful. If you can eat them raw, that would even be better. In fact, raw garlic and ginger are beneficial because they help the body absorb nutrients better. If you think you’re not getting enough vitamins and mineral, you can also go for food supplements (although raw and natural foods are still the best).

On your diet: Avoid foods rich in cholesterol, refined sugar, and coffee. Cholesterol-packed foods pose direct harm to the immune system while coffee causes dehydration and rob your body of important nutrients. On the other hand, sugar increases insulin which limits the hormones necessary to the body. Besides, it can also rob your body of nutrients as it uses them for their metabolism. Aside from diabetes, high sugar intake is also harmful for your weight and can cause various other diseases and mood swings.
