VitaZINC High Strength Immunity Support (VEGAN)
Zinc is perhaps one of the best supplements to boost your immune system, as it helps your body moderate the production of inflammatory cytokines and plays a vital part in your body’s immune response to pathogens. Also, zinc has been shown to specifically address respiratory tract infections, shortening the duration by an average of two days. Finally, zinc has numerous other benefits, including quicker healing and improved cognitive function.
VitaZINC is an immunity boosting health supplement packed with Zinc and Vitamin C formulated to fend off those nasty viruses that can cause disease. The combination of Zinc and Vitamin C working synergistically together has been shown in several studies to be effective against various viral infections, including the common cold, where Zinc has been shown to reduce cell binding which inhibits replication of the virus.
Not only has Zinc been shown to hinder viral replication, but it supports immune cell activity, including natural killer cells. While Vitamin C is an incredible immune booster that plays an important roll in many of the body’s mechanisms, including fuelling white blood cells which attack viruses in your body.

Zinc is vital for immune system function. Zinc controls immune system messaging within the cells and is also an anti-oxidant (prevents cell damage) and is anti-inflammatory. In cellular lab cultures, zinc has been shown to stop viral reproducing in minutes. One study showed that zinc inhibited SARS coronavirus in test tubes. For zinc to work effectively in the body to boost immune system function, zinc has to be pushed into the cells which would require an ionophore. An ionophore is a substance that transports particles across the cell wall barrier into the center of the cell. The center of the cell is where zinc needs to be to have the immune system effect. Viruses reproduce in the center of the cells. Zinc needs to be in the center of the cell to stop viral reproduction. An all-natural zinc ionophore is quercetin. Quercetin is a plant pigment found in red wine, onions, apples, berries and green tea. Quercetin is one of the most abundant anti-oxidants found in our diet and itself has strong anti-viral properties. The major benefit of taking quercetin with zinc is that the quercetin will push the zinc into the center of the cell where the zinc can stop the virus from reproducing.
Based on this information, zinc and quercetin are absolutely needed in your anti-viral war chest and should be taken daily all winter long and or immediately at the first sign of illness. Add Quercetin
