Designed to Defend: The Ingredients That Help You Feel Your Best

It’s good to be prepared in all aspects of your life, from your career to your home life and especially when it comes to your immune health. While you may take a daily multivitamin for general wellness, you might need extra immune support during the winter season, if you travel a lot, have kids in school, or work in a busy office or high-traffic area.*

That’s why we created new Alive!® Everyday Immune Health, a daily supplement meant to be taken alongside your favorite Alive! Multivitamin.* It’s designed to defend your immune system and crafted with vitamins, minerals, and botanicals to do the heavy lifting and provide the key nutrients your body needs to support the immune system.*

The most popular vitamin for immune health is definitely vitamin C.* Vitamin C delivers antioxidant protection, strengthens collagen, and supports immune function.* You can find Vitamin C in lots of different foods, including citrus fruits, red and green peppers, and broccoli. Everyday Immune Health contains 100% of the recommended daily value of Vitamin C.

Vitamin A provides antioxidant protection and supports both eye health and a healthy immune system.* You’ll find 100% of the recommended Daily Value of this hardworking vitamin in Everyday Immune Health as well.

Zinc is a mineral that promotes general health and can be found in all tissues and organs of your body.* It has long been used for immune support and is often one of the first things people reach for.* Everyday Immune Health is formulated with a healthy (see what we did there?) amount of zinc.

Vitamin D is best known for its ability to support healthy bones and teeth, but it also supports immune health.* One of the best sources of Vitamin D is the sun, but it can be tricky to get enough sunshine during the winter, especially if you work in a windowless cubicle. We’ve added 100% of the recommended Daily Value of vitamin D3 to Everyday Immune Health for the support you need, especially in the colder months.

Echinacea purpurea is an herb that has traditionally been used to help support immune health.* It’s a pretty pink-purple flower in the daisy family that has been used for various purposes throughout the past several centuries. Echinacea is often used in teas, drops, tinctures, and supplements.*

Everyday Immune Health also features oregano essential oil for an herbal boost.

To best support your immune health all year round, here’s your plan of action: eat a healthy diet, drink plenty of water, exercise, and add Everyday Immune Health to your wellness routine.*
