Protect your Health: Plant Medicines for your STRONGEST Immunity

Deep Immune

Health is wealth – and these days, it feels more critical than ever!

We often step up our health regimens when cold and flu season approaches, but this year, it coincides with a return to socializing in the “new normal” – and we’re all concerned about our health and looking for strategies to protect it.

After a year and a half of social-distancing, masking, and isolating, our immune systems are “out of practice” due to a lack of typical exposure to even low levels of common cold & flu viruses. Because of this, they may not be as strong as they need to be.

It’s important to understand how your immunity works and that it is crucial to support and build a strong immune system to help protect your health and get out in front of infections.

Certain plant medicines known as adaptogens offer powerful support in fortifying critical immune responses against illness and infection by proactively strengthening your innate immunity – your first line of immune defence!

Adaptogens – for your Strongest Immunity

You can protect your health – and your family’s – by boosting the body’s innate ability to fight off illness. The key here is balance!

When an immune system is overactive, there are greater inflammatory reactions (e.g., severe allergies, autoimmune conditions). If it is underactive, one is more susceptible to infections.

A balanced immune system is your strongest immune system, one that responds appropriately, efficiently, and effectively to external threats.

This is what makes adaptogens so effective for immune support: their ability to increase the body’s general resistance to threats by adapting their function to what the body needs for its systems to regulate back to its balanced, strongest state.

Deep Immune® daily tonic is made with immune-specific adaptogens that work to balance and fortify the immune system. Some of these include:

  • Reishi mushroom – highly valued in Traditional Chinese Medicine for lowering the effects of stress and modulating immune system responses. In fact, it is often referred to as “the mushroom of immortality”!
  • Astragalus – boosts immunity by strengthening both innate and adaptive immunity for a robust defensive system.
  • Siberian ginseng (Eleuthero) – traditionally used to increase stamina and as a tonic to boost overall health and improve mental and physical performance under stressful conditions.
  • Licorice – considered “the great harmonizer” in traditional Chinese medicine, amplifies the healing qualities of all the ingredients.

You may have heard about the immune benefits of some of these individual herbs, but knowing which are best and what dosages to take can be hard to figure out.

Deep Immune® eliminates the guesswork! Canada’s #1, award-winning, daily immune tonic brings together the right amounts of 8 powerful therapeutic immune supportive herbs that work in synergy – meaning they are more effective together than on their own.

There are 3 Deep Immune formulas:
  • Deep Immune® Original for Adults.
  • Deep Immune® Licorice-Free is modified to eliminate licorice, so that it is safe for those with (or at risk for) hypertension.
  • Deep Immune® Kids is a safe, effective, mild-tasting formula that stimulates improved immune function in children and contains only astragalus and codonopsis. We know how quickly a cough can travel around a classroom!

How to take Deep Immune

Ideally, Deep Immune® is taken daily as part of a regular routine 3 weeks on, 1 week off, starting several weeks prior to high exposure times. But, ultimately, it’s never too late to start strengthening your family’s immune system.

Herbal prevention is easy to add to your daily routine. Just take Deep Immune tincture twice daily in a little water – a shot glass is even better. Or else use convenient Deep Immune VegiCaps.

For kids – you can add their dosages to a little juice, or even a smoothie – it’s about whatever works. Consistency is key! 

To determine appropriate size to purchase, here’s an example: For children 5-9 yrs. old, the dose is ~2mL a day… meaning a 100mL bottle would last for 50 days.

For all dosing quantities, consult the product label or product pages on our website.

Deep Immune & Strest

Stress – Immunity Connection

Stress management is a big part of staying healthy and having strong immunity – but it’s a challenge for most of us managing busy, modern lives.

Adaptogens are also exceptionally effective for managing daily stress. Adaptogenic herbs, plants, and mushrooms work to recalibrate all systems of the body, making it more resilient, and specific ones have an exceptional ability to reduce the negative impacts of physical, emotional, and mental stress.

Ashwagandha is an adaptogen that can be found in both tincture and capsule form and has been used for thousands of years to strengthen the body’s vitality, fortifying resiliency against infection, while restoring and calming the nervous system, alleviating anxiety.

The award winning Strest® formula contains ashwagandha PLUS 5 other highly esteemed herbs that promote resilience against stress. These work synergistically in a formula where the effect of the combination of herbs is greater than the sum of its parts.

NOTE: Deep Immune® can be safely taken alongside our Ashwagandha tincture and capsules, as well as the Strest® formula.

Taking charge of strengthening your immunity protects your health by fortifying your first line of defence against illness. Stress management support combined with the ideal all-around daily immune tonics helps balance and fortify your strongest immune system – allowing you to navigate the “new normal” with confidence!

Note: Being proactive is the first step, but sickness can sometimes strike – especially with the return to socialization this autumn. If anyone in the family feels symptoms begin to set in, it’s important to be prepared to react quickly to nip things in the bud!
