Turmeric (Curcuma longa): Although famous for being one of the main ingredients of curry powder, Turmeric has a long history as a medicinal herb in Chinese and Indian medicine. Science has borne out its traditional use as an anti–inflammatory. The anti-inflammatory effect of Turmeric is mainly due to its major constituent, curcumin.

Immune Plus 30ml £5.89

Indications:Viral, Bacterial and Fungal infections

Description
Echinacea (Echinacea purpurea): Although famous for its immune system stimulating properties, Echinacea also exerts a direct anti-bacterial, anti-viral action. The anti-fungal action of Echinacea is due to its ability to enhance macrophage phagocytosis (macrophages are blood cells that play an important role in immunity, they are found mainly in the spleen, lymph nodes and liver. Phagocytosis is the action of engulfing and destroying; pathogens).

Elderberry (Sambucus nigra): Much research into Elderberry has proven its anti-viral properties. Elderberry has a direct effect on the DNA of the virus, switching off production of the enzyme that the virus uses to break down body cell walls. As viruses can only replicate inside a body cell, preventing the virus getting inside cells limits its life. A flu virus with an average 6-7 day life can be reduced to under 48hrs with Elderberry.

Cats Claw (Uncaria tormentosa): Not real cats claws from our feline friends, but a South American vine with clawlike hooks which allow it to climb. Cats Claw has traditionally been used by native peoples as a ‘cure all ’. Research into the plant suggests that it has the ability to enhance the immune system. Alkaloids and polysaccharides found in the herb have been shown to increase phagocytosis.

Astragulus (Astragulus membronosis): Known in Chinese herbal medicine as Huang Qi, a good tonic herb. Immune boosting, liver supportive. Shown to be useful in chronic fatigue, probably due to the immune system enhancing properties of the herb.

+ A good multi-vitamin/multi-mineral complex designed for animals is a must. Extra vitamin C.
+ Garlic, powder, raw or capsule, has good anti-biotic, anti-viral, anti-fungal properties. Can be added to food.
+ Beta carotene, a precursor of vitamin A. Vitamin A is essential to immune system function.
+ Essential Fatty Acids (EFA’s), important to every function of the body hence ‘Essential’. Balanced oil blends are effective, giving a correct ratio of Omega 3-6-9. However most oil blends contain Flax oil, cats cannot metabolise Flax oil. So give cats Fish Oil along side Borage or Evening Primrose oil.

They dispense from a saltshaker type bottle and can be used in a whole variety of ways from sprinkling on foods (even while cooking) or adding to drinks. They can also be added to soups, vegetables and even steaks or fish on the grill. This method of use allows the entire family to experience the benefits of our pure plant minerals.

Each bottle contains 38,000 Mg.

To use Powdered Minerals give your pet six hundred milligrams per fifty kilograms of bodyweight. This amount is about a quarter teaspoonful per day. This will ensure your pet is in tip-top condition and will benefit from any other supplements or medicines you are giving them. The amount we supply here should last for a few months at least.
