378 – How to Improve Your Immune Response

Good nutrition is the key to healthy immune cell function.

The reality of immunity is that it is your own immune cells that do the work. When we eat nutritious foods, and take the right supplements then all cells in the body including the immune cells can function better. Poor nutritional status can compromise the structure and function of immune cells. Your goal should be to take those nutrients which are known to be important. In this interview Jim LaValle will discuss the most important nutrients and why they are critical for immune support.

IMPORTANT NOTE: We are not suggesting that nutrition is a treatment for COVID. We are suggesting that nutrition will support the structure and function of immune cells. The vaccines aid specific immunity by stimulating anti-body production in the immune cells. The vaccine does not kill COVID. In either case we are seeking to increase our own natural defenses.

Jim discusses the nutrients with the most significant impact. These three nutrients are arguably the most important. If you only take a few nutrients, take these three. I will suggest you should do more. The recommended potencies are my personal recommendation.

  • Vitamin D – 5000 iu (125 mcg)
  • Vitamin C – 1000 mg to 5000 mg.
  • Zinc – 15 mg to 50 mg.

Aged Garlic Extract

Aged Garlic Extract (AGE) has been one of my favorite supplements. I use AGE and it is the only garlic supplement that I recommend. Here why:

  • AGE works. There are 870 clinical studies. This is a huge body of scientific research. No other garlic product is even comparable by any metric.
  • AGE is aged for 20 months and becomes odorless and more effective than any other garlic product..
  • AGE is organic.
  • AGE has benefits for immune support, cardiovascular support, blood pressure support and cholesterol support. Remember, these are clinically validated results and you get all of these benefits from one powerful supplement.

There are other important nutrients that you can consider. We have numerous interviews on these nutrients as well. Vitamin A, omega-3, NAC, Quercetin, Oregano Oil and probiotics are a few examples. In my opinion, building your nutritional program is one of the most important options you have. A person with a stronger and well-supported immune system will do better.

Proven Benefits Backed by Science

Since its inception in 1972, Wakunaga of America has embraced the belief that only high-quality, scientifically-backed products should be presented to the marketplace. Our Aged Garlic Extract has been the subject of more than 870 scientific papers. Many of these are peer-reviewed double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled clinical trials, considered to be the “gold standard” among the scientific community.

A double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled clinical trial is a medical study involving human participants. The participants are randomly assigned to either one or more treatment groups or to a placebo group. A placebo is an inactive substance (often a sugar pill) given to a patient in place of the active treatment. During a double-blind trial, neither the participants nor the researchers know who’s getting treatment or who is getting a placebo. In that way, researchers can compare how effective the active treatment is against the placebo; without any bias.

Through the years, Aged Garlic Extract has been found to provide key cardiovascular benefits in numerous double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled clinical trials. These findings include:  lowering blood pressure and cholesterol, slowing the progression of atherosclerosis by reducing the buildup of plaque and calcium deposits, and enhancing circulation. Other studies show that Aged Garlic Extract may play a role in immunity, blood sugar control, and liver support, either alone or when combined with other targeted nutrients.
