Seasonal Hot Immune Defense Powder ☕️
Regular price $36.00
It's almost impossible for humans to achieve optimal Vitamin D levels during Winter. Our goal with Immune Defense was to create a delicious supplement to support the body through the colder months and combat Seasonal Affective Disorder. Because our seasonal Immune Defense flavors are best consumed hot, there is no Vitamin C in these products as it alters the delightful, cozy flavor of these wonderful blends.

To protect from Vitamin D toxicity, Vitamin D should always be teamed up with vitamin A & Vitamin K (which can be depleted with high doses of D). Higher doses may be needed if vitamin D levels have been checked by a doctor and are significantly low. Levels should be rechecked for optimal dosing.
Vitamin A: “ Vitamin A (VitA) is a micronutrient that is crucial for maintaining vision, promoting growth and development, and protecting epithelium and mucus integrity in the body. VitA is known as an anti-inflammation vitamin because of its critical role in enhancing immune function. VitA is involved in the development of the immune system and plays regulatory roles in cellular immune responses and humoral immune processes. VitA has demonstrated a therapeutic effect in the treatment of various infectious diseases.” -Nation Natural Science
Vitamin C: “ Vitamin C is an essential micronutrient for humans, with pleiotropic functions related to its ability to donate electrons. It is a potent antioxidant and a cofactor for a family of biosynthetic and gene regulatory enzymes. Vitamin C contributes to immune defense by supporting various cellular functions of both the innate and adaptive immune system. Vitamin C supports epithelial barrier function against pathogens and promotes the oxidant scavenging activity of the skin, thereby potentially protecting against environmental oxidative stress. Vitamin C accumulates in phagocytic cells, such as neutrophils, and can enhance chemotaxis, phagocytosis, generation of reactive oxygen species, and ultimately microbial killing. It is also needed for apoptosis and clearance of the spent neutrophils from sites of infection by macrophages, thereby decreasing necrosis/NETosis and potential tissue damage. The role of vitamin C in lymphocytes is less clear, but it has been shown to enhance differentiation and proliferation of B- and T-cells, likely due to its gene regulating effects. ”
“Supplementation with vitamin C appears to be able to both prevent and treat respiratory and systemic infections.” -Department of Pathology,
Vitamin K: “A role for vitamin K in
The mechanisms by which vitamin K influences biomarkers of inflammation are not known, although there is some suggestion that vitamin K suppresses inflammation by decreasing expression of genes for individual cytokines, such as interleukin-6 and osteoprotegerin“ -USDA Human
