A common cold is a viral infection of the upper respiratory tract that includes your nose and throat. Symptoms usually appear one to three days after exposure and include the typical sore throat, runny or congested nose, cough, sneezing, low-grade fever and mild body aches. A fever higher than 39.4 C distinguishes a cold from a different type of viral infection.
Your immune system is the first defence against infectious organisms. It’s made up of a network of cells, tissues and organs that work together to create an immune response. Most of the time it does its job, but sometimes a weak link can allow for a virus or other infectious organisms to creep in and lead to illness.
Cold-Pro™ Immune Formula is designed to maintain and strengthen the immune system, aid in the symptomatic relief of colds and flus and speed recovery. It contains seven potent, immune boosting nutrients plus antiviral and antibacterial herbs. Research shows that each ingredient in Cold-Pro™ is extremely effective on its own, and combining them has produced a synergistic and powerful immune formulation.

Are you getting enough Vitamin D? Summer or winter, our need for Vitamin D is often far greater than we are getting. Researchers now know that previous recommendations for optimal levels of Vitamin D were much too low! Vitamin D not only helps strengthen bones; Vitamin D also protects against dementia, depression, diabetes, obesity, certain cancers and MS. Prairie Naturals Vitamin D3 is made with cholecalciferol, the most readily absorbed form. Be sure you get enough of this low-cost, highly valuable vitamin. You’ll soon feel the difference that Vitamin D makes to your health and happiness.
Prevent drug-induced vitamin D deficiency
Medications that can lower Vitamin D levels in the body include*: antacids, anti-seizure medications, bile acid sequestrants (to lower cholesterol), mineral oil, Orlistat (for weight loss), H2 blockers and proton pump inhibitors (to reduce stomach acid).
NOW Vitamin D-1000 softgels supply recommended levels of this key vitamin in a highly-absorbable liquid softgel form.

Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) is a multitasking vitamin and antioxidant responsible for the growth and repair of all tissues in the body. It’s first on the scene to heal wounds and form scar tissue, help with the development of bones and teeth, strengthen blood vessel walls and assist with iron absorption and utilization. It primarily helps to produce collagen by adding hydrogen and oxygen to amino acids inside of collagen cells, which helps keep skin firm and prevent wrinkles.
Vitamin C is a potent antioxidant that blocks damage caused by ever-present free radicals in the body. Though they are natural byproducts of oxygen metabolism, free radicals can alter the structure of healthy cells, which can only be neutralized by antioxidants. If free radicals are allowed to build up in the body, they can quicken the aging process and promote the development of serious disease.
We are unable to produce and store vitamin C on our own, so a daily intake of at least 500 mg contained in CanPrev’s Synergy C™ is key to replenishing what we lose through excretion daily. Certain medications like oral contraceptives, plus environmental pollution, smoking and illnesses causing fever and infection can all tap into our vitamin C supply, leaving less for metabolic functions.
Studies show that vitamin C can also play a role in lessening or shortening the duration of common cold symptoms when taken regularly.
Synergy C™ is a premium quality vitamin C formula with a combination of ingredients that together ensure maximum absorbability. It provides 1,000 mg of pH-neutral vitamin C using buffered mineral delivery systems. By binding ascorbic acid to minerals, Synergy C™ promotes maximum absorption of vitamin C. To further enhance absorption and bioavailability, therapeutic dosages of antioxidant-rich bioflavonoids from citrus fruits and sea buckthorn pulp have been added for complete synergy

For more than 2000 years, Chinese herbalists have valued Astragalus for its adaptogenic properties, as well as for its ability to tonify the body's "vital force" known as the Qi. More recently, Astragulus has been found to support healthy immune function through numerous mechanisms. Non-clinical studies using Astragalus have demonstrated its ability to stimulate the production of and increase the activity of specialized white blood cells, such as T-Cells and Natural Killer Cells. Astragalus has also been studied for its role in the support of healthy liver and vascular function.
Herbalists recommend the use of Astragalus both seasonally and year-round to support a healthy immune system.

New Roots Vitamin C8 Immune 180 caps
Formulated with eight forms of buffered vitamin C, Vitamin C⁸ contains additional cutting-edge nutraceuticals dedicated to excellent health. It’s also less acidic, for enhanced gastrointestinal tolerance.
Not All Vitamin C Products Are Created Equal
For your body to truly get all the benefits of vitamin C, it needs to get it from more than one source. Vitamin C⁸ combines calcium, magnesium, potassium, zinc, manganese, selenium, and sodium mineral ascorbates with ascorbyl palmitate to provide a full spectrum of powerful antioxidant benefits. Only Vitamin C⁸ offers eight assisted pathways of absorption and retention for 24 hours or more. Vitamin C⁸ does even more for your health: Vitamin C⁸ helps enhance your immune strength and is an excellent source of electrolytes which can replenish those lost through perspiration. It also delivers the antioxidant action of three cups worth of green tea per capsule.
What Makes VITAMIN C⁸ Great?
Vitamin C⁸ is formulated with minerals bonded with vitamin C, a superior form called ascorbates.
Calcium Ascorbateis a natural form of vitamin C which is much more readily absorbed in the bloodstream than other forms of calcium. Importantly, calcium is coupled with vitamin C to deliver the benefits of both calcium and vitamin C.
Magnesium Ascorbateis a buffered form of this critical mineral. It’s essential to build the bones and teeth, and has numerous metabolic functions. Magnesium ascorbate is a neutral salt having good gastrointestinal tolerance.
Potassium Ascorbate —Potassium is an essential dietary mineral and electrolyte. Electrolytes are substances that dissociate into ions (charged particles) in a solution, making them capable of conducting electricity. Our bodies depend upon the tight regulation of potassium concentrations, both within and surrounding the cells.
Manganese Ascorbate —Manganese is important in the breakdown of amino acids and the production of energy. It activates enzymes critical for digestion and nourishes skeletal development.
Selenium(from ʟ‑selenomethionine) protects cells from free radicals.
Zinc Ascorbate —Zinc is a component of the enzymes involved in most major metabolic pathways, with a wide range of biological roles. Zinc plays catalytic, structural, and regulatory roles in more than 200 zinc metalloenzymes that have been identified in biological systems. These enzymes are involved in nucleic acid and protein metabolism as well as in the production of energy. Zinc plays structural roles in zinc fingers, which are instrumental in gene expression. Zinc is also instrumental for the integrity of biological membranes, for protection from oxidative stress. Zinc supports the immune system.
Sodium Ascorbateis buffered (nonacidic) and will not contribute to gastric irritation in acid-sensitive persons. Calcium/magnesium, potassium, and manganese all play an important role, since a constant blood value of these minerals is required for a normal rhythmic heartbeat, healthy nerve transmission, and strong muscle contractions. Once a muscle contracts, calcium leaves and only then, magnesium replaces it; the muscle can then return to a relaxed state.
Ascorbyl Palmitateis a fat-soluble antioxidant, allowing it to be incorporated into cell membranes. When incorporated into the cell membranes of human red blood cells, ascorbyl palmitate has been found to protect them from oxidative damage and to protect vitamin E (another fat-soluble antioxidant) from oxidation by free radicals. When taking ascorbyl palmitate orally, it becomes hydrolyzed and breaks apart into palmitate and ascorbic acid in the human digestive tract before it is absorbed. The presence of ascorbyl palmitate in Vitamin C⁸ contributes to the ascorbic acid content, and helps protect lipid-soluble antioxidants during storage.
Vitamin C⁸ provides additional antioxidant protection with the inclusion of nutraceutical extracts. These natural food sources exist in harmony with the whole foods they are derived from. While isolated sources of antioxidants offer increased potency, whole-food sources offer natural balance and synergy, and they provide us with natural forms of minerals and antioxidants.
Green Tea, 75% EGCG —Research suggests that flavonoid, polyphenol-type antioxidants, such as EGCG, inhibit 5‑alpha-reductase.
Multianthocyanidins 20%, Bilberry 25%, Grape Seed Extract 95%, and Cranberry 107× Extract —Proanthocyanidins, anthocyanidins, and cyanidins are bioflavonoids with powerful antioxidant properties. These flavonoids are sourced from strawberries, bilberries, blueberries, grapes, cherries, cranberries, and elderberries. They exert broad-spectrum action for scavenging free radicals.
Citrus Bioflavonoids —Bioflavonoids are a class of water-soluble plant pigments abundant in citrus fruits. These bioflavonoids have been proven to benefit the bioavailability of vitamin C.
Quercetin and Rutin —Quercetin is a flavonoid that forms the “backbone” for many other flavonoids, including tangeritin. Quercetin and rutin have many health-promoting effects, including the absorption and retention of vitamin C. They also help to combat free radicals which can damage cells.
Black Pepper, 95% Extract —The active ingredient in both black pepper and long pepper is the alkaloid piperine. Research has demonstrated that piperine enhances the bioavailability of many nutraceuticals. This makes piperine a great fit for Vitamin C⁸.
Proteolytic Enzymes —Bromelain from pineapple and papain from papaya are among the most researched proteolytic enzymes. They break down peptide bonds within proteins, which in turn increases bioavailability. These robust digestants also resist degradation within harsh gastric conditions.
