Supports Body's Defense Against Immune Challenges
Elderberry extract has been shown to decrease both the duration and severity of cold/flu symptoms. It's effects work when taking it as a preventive as well as taking elderberry at the first site of symptoms.
Green Tea Extract (EGCG) and the amino acid L-theanine (also found in in green tea) demonstrated a 28% increase in T cell proliferation and a 26% increase in interferon gamma. Interferon gamma is the main cytokine responsible for triggering a cellular immune response against viral and bacterial pathogens. Who knew green tea was so potent on the immune front. It is like going into a football game and having the teams playbook. They don't stand chance.
The green tea extract plus L-theanine combo also brought about a 30% reduction in overall cold/flu symptoms. This can easily be the difference in going to the ER or being able to go to work the next day. Another study of 197 people showed that the combination significantly reduced clinical symptoms compared to placebo in patients who had a verified viral infection. Think less fatigue, less congestion, less cough, less headache and generally less missing out on life.
Olive leaf extract has also been added to First Defense to act as a strong antioxidant to make up for the inflammatory insult of viral infections. Olive leaf extract has also been shown to increase secretory IgA, which is our first line of defense along our mucous membranes.
