Many of us work hard every day to provide immune support to avoid the various bugs we face every day. This means eating a heathy diet with the appropriate number of servings of fruit and vegetables, getting adequate sleep, trying to limit stress and taking a daily regimen of basic nutritional supplements.
The most common supplements many of us take include vitamin C, vitamin D and Zinc. These can be taken as pills, in a multi-vitamin or as powders we can add to water. We take these base supplements as added insurance that we can avoid getting infected from the various illnesses we are being exposed to.
But are these enough to protect us? For those of us who are supplement savvy there are a number of items designed to provide immune support. Probiotics, mushrooms, garlic and curcumin are just a few more ingredients that are used in products designed to boost immunity. But how many different products can we take? This is a choice many people need to make.
I have a chance to review many immune support products. A unique product that I have tried is a product called KORESELECT IMMUNE, an immunity support product produced by Korea Ginseng Corp. The product is based on two primary ingredients, Korean Red Ginseng and European Black Elderberry. I addition to providing immune support it can help improve energy, assist in brain support and healthy blood circulation.
One of the key ingredients of this product is the Korean Red Ginseng root. The product comes from South Korea. And it is all six-year old, Korean red ginseng root extract. So, everything stays in the ground for six years, which is from what their R&D has been able to determine is where you hit the maximum potency of the roots. Then, everything is manufactured, extracted, et cetera, in their own facilities and distributed to the United States.
What’s interesting though, is that 6-year growth process, which is tightly controlled by the company is actually an 18-year total process. Because, for two years prior to planting the soil is evaluated because it has to meet very specific guidelines. And then, after the six-year growth period, for 10 years after harvesting, you cannot grow ginseng on that property. You can grow other crops. You can crop rotate, but you cannot grow ginseng. So when you add up, 2 plus six plus 10, it’s actually an 18-year process.
Plus it’s the nature of the ginseng root itself. Ginseng is, what we would call a very greedy root. Roots in general tend to be. But, Ginseng in particular is really taking all of the nutrients from the soil in order to achieve the objective of the potency and the ginsenosides and the other compounds. So, you need to replenish the soil. You need to look at other crops that will do that over that 10-year period.
The other key ingredient is European Black Elderberry. In test-tube studies, elderberry extract demonstrates potent antibacterial and antiviral potential against bacterial pathogens responsible for upper respiratory tract infections and strains of the influenza virus. What’s more, it has been shown to enhance immune system response and may help shorten the duration and severity of colds, as well as reduce symptoms related to viral infections.
Combined together the ingredients in KORESELECT IMMUNE will supercharge your immune system and keep you energized during these crazy days.
