Immune Support is an herbal formula that promotes superior immune-boosting and systemic health support to both healthy and sick animals. The premium blend of health-fortifying herbs found in Immune Support may help with poor appetite, fatigue, digestion issues, liver health, and general weakness. Long-term, daily use of the herbs in Immune Support may promote longevity and improved cognition, making it an excellent choice for cats of all ages.
A healthy, responsive immune system is essential in protecting against illness as a compromised immune system leaves the body vulnerable to sickness. While many synthetic drugs exist to treat problems after they develop, natural approaches can be a great option for health maintenance and preventative purposes. Medicinal herbs consumed daily can stimulate the immune system and help to enhance overall health and wellbeing.
In addition to promoting healthy immune function, maintaining a normal inflammatory response is another necessary step in taking care of your cat’s health. While a healthy diet and regular exercise should be the primary approach to maintaining a normal inflammatory response, there are also herbs that can provide excellent support.
Immune Support contains a proprietary blend of the following herbs in therapeutic dosage:
Alfalfa (Medicago sativa) is a deeply nutritive herb with high mineral content, owing to its roots which typically grow to depths of 60 feet. Alfalfa contains a variety of health-benefiting minerals such as Magnesium, Potassium, Phosphorus, Iron, Silicon, Zinc and Calcium, among other trace minerals as well. Traditionally, Alfalfa was provided as food to restore a healthy appetite, normal digestion and physical strength.
Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera) has been used for centuries in Ayurvedic medicine as a Rasayana or “Rejuvenator”. Regular use of Ashwagandha relieves stress, improves energy levels, and improves health and vitality over time. Ashwagandha has been studied for its ability to inhibit the growth of cancer cells, without harming healthy cells (1). Ashwagandha also provides support to the immune system.
Asian Ginseng (Panax ginseng) is considered one of the world’s most effective adaptogens, due to its anti-stress and restorative properties. Used for millennia in Traditional Chinese Medicine, Ginseng can be very helpful for pets suffering from fatigue, weakness, insomnia, cognitive impairment and systemic inflammation. Ginseng has been studied extensively for its anti-cancer properties and is believed by Chinese herbalists to improve the flow of “Qi” throughout the entire body.
Astragalus (Astragalus membranaceus) provides anti-cancer, anti-inflammatory and immune-boosting benefits. Considered one of the most important herbs in Traditional Chinese Medicine, Astragalus is traditionally consumed in soups to promote vibrant health and longevity. Astragalus is believed to have a nourishing and protective influence on the liver and heart, and typically benefits animals exhibiting weakness and fatigue. In China, Astragalus is considered a Wei Qi tonic due to its ability to protect against infection and ward off illness.
Cat’s Claw (Uncaria tomentosa) is a woody vine native to Central and South America. Traditionally, the priests of the Asháninka Indian tribe in Peru believed Cat’s Claw to be a sacred herb due to its health restorative and protective effects. Cat’s Claw possesses anti-inflammatory and immune-boosting properties that often benefit sick animals undergoing medical treatment. Cat’s Claw has been studied for its ability to promote white blood cell formation and DNA repair in human subjects (2).
Cinchona (Cinchona calisaya) originates in the Amazon rainforest and is used to stimulate the appetite and promote healthy digestion. Herbalists in South America have also used Cinchona for a variety of illnesses including malaria, respiratory infection, rheumatism, influenza and cancer.
Echinacea (Echinacea purpurea) is considered one of the world’s best immune-stimulating herbs. Traditionally used by the Native Americans, Echinacea can be a very effective approach to fighting illnesses of various kinds due to its immune-boosting properties. Traditionally Echinacea was prescribed as a natural pain reliever with a gentle anti-inflammatory action. Various phytochemicals contained in Echinacea have been studied for their ability to combat tumor growth (3).
Milk Thistle (Silybum Marianum) is a liver tonic herb originating from the Mediterranean region. Silymarin is one of the herb’s main therapeutic compounds, believed to provide anti-inflammatory, detoxifying, liver protective and anti-cancer benefits. Promoting healthy liver function is considered one of the most important ways to approach systemic illness, and Milk Thistle provides robust liver support for improved digestion, skin health and longevity.
Mistletoe (Viscum album) is a gentle, immune-boosting herb that is used extensively in Germany to increase survival rates and longevity in cancer patients (4). Extracts of this herb provide cleansing and health-restorative support to sick animals, while reducing unpleasant symptoms associated with immune dysfunction.
