One of the common questions that we get from many of you is, “How often should I take the Immunity 3 supplement?”
Immunity 3 is amazing for supporting your immune system, and it has deep beneficial properties to help support your stress response mechanism, balance your hormones, and ultimately just lift up how your body is responding to life every day. So, let me share with you my recommendations based on the ingredients that we find in here.
The Power of Immunity 3: What’s in it?
So, the most kind of forward ingredient that we have here in the Immunity 3 is camu camu. Camu camu is an amazing powerhouse power punch of vitamin C. It has 50 times the vitamin C you’re going to find in normal vitamin C supplementation that’s plant-based. Which, by the way, one of the benefits of reaching for Immunity 3 is that you’re getting whole organic berry powder. Which, that’s what camu camu, it’s an Amazonian berry, so you’re getting an unadulterated form of this berry. So, that means you’re getting the most bioavailable form of vitamin C.
The other thing that we have in here, in the ingredients, we have two extensively bioavailable zincs. This is really exciting, because a lot of times zinc needs to be bonded with something else. Basically, I consider it, if zinc comes over to see you for a little coffee hour or for a tea date, it needs to bring a friend along, otherwise, it can’t show up fully. So, what we see is zinc needs to be partnered up often with a helper.
We find that we have two amino acids that are helpers. We have the zinc arginate, which is L-arginine. That’s the amino acid that brings that particular form into the body, and then we have zinc glycinate, and that has glycine, a very common amino acid. So you’re getting very bioavailable forms, which is great, because now we can look at specifically the bioavailability and its potency – that factors into the frequency of taking it. Also, the other ingredient in here is elderberry and elderberry is a wonderful immune booster.
Start Micro-Dosing at the Start of Onset Symptoms
So, what I recommend for folks, if you are noticing that you have a little tickling of your throat, or your ears start to get kind of plugged up, or you start to feel that sinus headache or just the malaise, just starting to get that muscle ache, kind of beginning of what feels like the cold or the flu, especially now it could be the flu or COVID. So, what I recommend is the magic of the Immunity 3 is, one, make sure you have it on hand. So, you don’t want to be without zinc when you have these onsets, we call them “onset symptoms.”
When you experience an onset of symptoms, that’s when you want to act fast, and we want to do what we call micro-dosing. So at the onset, you want to start taking your Immunity 3. What I recommend is taking it in a microdose – two capsules, two to three times throughout the day and spaced out usually two or three hours. So you just do microdose, microdose, microdose, and you’re really power-punching it with the vitamin C, with the two super bioavailable forms with the right amino acid helpers that are going to integrate the 15 milligrams of zinc right on into your immune system. Then you’ve got the elderberry, which is great for a lot of the symptoms and just also supporting your immune system.
So, that is what I recommend. That frequency would really be for the first four to five days, but generally, when people start to take zinc and vitamin C at the onset of symptoms, we notice, and there’s a lot of research on this, that we see the symptom duration shorten. So, it depends on what you’re dealing with that would be essentially the symptom duration, but make sure you have this on hand, grab extra so that if one or more people in your family, you’ve got everybody targeted with the onset of micro-dosing. So, that’s what I recommend.
Trace Minerals for Balancing Zinc
I do have another caveat. Because zinc, especially in these forms is so potent and is going to be integrated very successfully into your body, you want to make sure you pair the Immunity 3 up with a very beneficial trace mineral complex. I say that, because one of the things when we are taking zinc, and this is a shorter period of time what I’m recommending, but I still like to balance it. It’s all about balance, and minerals have their own kind of balance within the body. Zinc needs to be in equal balance with copper. When we have extra dosing of zinc, we need to bring up our dosing of copper.
Why I don’t recommend just taking copper, I like to have the full trace mineral complex, because that’s also pro-supportive of your immune state, but also it will help balance out the zinc and copper. I talk a little bit more if you follow us here for future videos and emails, I will be sharing a little bit more about zinc types, how much, what’s the kind of max dosing, all those good details, but make sure you balance your zinc with a good trace mineral. So, those are my tips today for you to enjoy the powerful benefits of Immunity 3.

Today, I want to talk to you about an amazing plant-based powerhouse of vitamin C called camu camu. Camu camu is the number-one plant-based vitamin C powerhouse. This is an amazing Amazonian berry and like many other medicinals from the Amazonian, the amazing potency of this berry is by far one of the best ways for us to add in natural, organic, plant-based vitamin C into our bodies.

Vitamin C Provides Immune Support
If you’re looking to strengthen your resiliency to any type of viral or bacterial invasion or any type of COVID infection, adding camu camu will be very beneficial to your body. And I’m excited to share that we have in the Organixx Immunity 3, the camu camu is at the highest potency that is going to really support and benefit your body. So let me share with you some other amazing, powerful benefits of adding camu camu to your daily life. And you can take this every day.
So, one of the things we often associate vitamin C with is your immune state, and it is very powerful at helping support your immunity, but there are several ways that it does this. And this is really unique that you are not going to find in let’s say a vitamin C from an orange or even a synthetic, which are, I recommend avoiding synthetic vitamin Cs. They’re not bioavailable, and it’s harder for the body to absorb them and assimilate and make them potent in the way we want to use them.
Vitamin C Supports our Adrenal Glands and Stress Response
So vitamin C directly supports our adrenal glands. And this is really amazing because our adrenal glands, that’s our fight or flight stress response system. Those glands are responsible for registering how we deal with stress every day. And what we know is when we experience higher stress levels, we actually have spikes in cortisol that actually increases insulin levels as well.
This is just this whole stress responsive mechanism. We’re hardwired as cave women and cave men to respond this way. One of the things, if we’re in that fight or flight stressed out state for longer periods of time, we have extensive cortisol production. Well, that ends up draining the adrenals of a critical nutrient that supports them. And guess what? It’s vitamin C. So camu camu can be very beneficial for supporting your stress response mechanism. And it supports the adrenal glands, which has overwhelmingly complex high benefits there. And I’ll share with you some complexities to those benefits here shortly.
Vitamin C Supports Gut Health
The other thing that we see with vitamin C is it directly supports our gut health and specifically camu camu in the 50 X form, we notice that we find patients, and this has been clinically studied, that our immune state lies in our gut. 80% of our immunity is in our digestive process. And camu camu, the vitamin C in camu camu, is very pro-digestive-process supportive. We see clinically individuals who suffer from weakened immunity, and these could be folks who have autoimmunity, individuals who’ve undergone cancer radiation, individuals that have repetitive infections and just have weakened immune state, or are recovering from a viral or bacteria infection. They need extra vitamin C.
Vitamin C at high doses can heal and supports closing in the gaps in our small intestine. We know that condition as leaky gut. So it can help support the healing of leaky gut, which helps benefit an assortment of health and wellness conditions that can plague the body and weaken immunity. But most critically, it also, in that healing process, can help our absorption. So you heal your gut, you absorb better, and it improves and lifts your immunity. It improves and lifts your stress state within your body, the physiological and biochemical support of your body.
Camu Camu is Antagonistic to Strep Strains
And here’s the other thing. It has been proven, particularly the vitamin C that we find in camu camu, has been proven to be antagonistic to strep strains. And if you’re not sure what strep strains are, basically streptococcus is a particular unhealthy bacteria. We often will see it in the oral passageway. Sometimes we’ll see inoculation where we will see streptococcus in the small and large intestine, and it can plague us. It’s commonly the culprit behind strep throat. It can be behind laryngitis. It can be behind an assortment of ailments. Vitamin C at high doses is antagonistic, meaning it helps support an environment where strep strains cannot exist. So it supports your immune state.
Camu Camu Helps Balance Hormone Levels
And lastly, one of the things that the impact to the adrenal glands, the positive impact for ladies, we see that women who have imbalanced menstrual cycles, camu camu can highly benefit those phases of the menstrual cycle.
And we often know ovulation is the middle point, but the latter point – the luteal phase – that tends to be the problematic phase. That’s a phase that needs greater quantities of progesterone. And when we’re under stress or we have hormonal imbalances, often progesterone will be low. And the ratio between estrogen and progesterone – it’s supposed to be a three-to-one – that often gets imbalanced. Well, vitamin C high doses that supports the adrenal glands stops the leaching that occurs in the body where the body is stealing, literally taking progesterone and converting it into something else that’s useful for the stress response mechanism.
And that actually is something we see very frequently with women that test high cortisol or have cortisol imbalances. And I do testing in my clinic, so I’ve seen thousands of results and it’s very common where women will have high later-day cortisol levels. And they also have basement-level progesterone. And that ends up leading to having shorter menstrual cycles, irregularity.
And vitamin C, by supporting the adrenals, ends up supporting the progesterone production in the body, which lengthens the luteal phase. So, this also comes into play for women of all ages – women who might be having infertility issues, maybe miscarriages, and women going through perimenopause and menopause.
So, camu camu is awesome for a multitude of reasons, and you can find it in our Organixx Immunity 3. So, I hope you’ll check it out and come back and let us know how it works for you.
