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.
