What’s In Secure AV?
Secure AV is packed with a variety of vitamins, minerals, herbs and enzymes for optimal immune system fortification. Some of those beneficial ingredients include:
Secure AV delivers 1,500 mcg of vitamin A, in the form of retinyl palmitate. Vitamin A is closely linked to proper immune function and is also important for good eye health. In fact, studies show that supplementing vitamin A in people with deficiency may help protect them from measles and malaria. Research also suggests that vitamin A may slow or prevent the progression of age-related macular degeneration.
In the immune system, vitamin A serves two important purposes. One, it is used to maintain the mucous membranes in the gut, eyes and lungs, which capture pathogens before they can infect the body. And two, vitamin A is used to produce white blood cells, which are responsible for hunting down pathogens and destroying them.
Secure AV provides 250 mg of vitamin C (specifically ascorbic acid). Vitamin C is a powerful nutrient that can boost the body’s health and immunity in several ways. It’s an important component in skin and is used to form collagen, which itself is used in wound healing and to block pathogens from entering the skin.
Inside your body, vitamin C is among the most effective antioxidants in our diet. It shields your body’s cells against roaming free radicals that can cause oxidative stress. As oxidative stress is a known risk factor for chronic disease like cancer and diabetes, vitamin C helps protect your long-term health. Further, vitamin C is an essential building block in lymphocyte and phagocyte white blood cells, both responsible for hunting and destroying invaders. Vitamin C can also enhance your white blood cell function by protecting those cells from oxidative stress.
Secure AV comes with 5 mg of zinc, or 50 percent of your body’s daily needs. Zinc is an essential nutrient that the body cannot produce on its own, and it’s required in a number of bodily functions.
It is particularly useful for improving immune system performance, and it starts in the skin. Zinc is required for proper collagen formation, so like vitamin C, it speeds up wound healing and ensures your skin forms a strong barrier against pathogens. In fact, your skin holds more zinc than any other organ, with up to 5 percent of your zinc intake going to skin health.
Zinc is also required for cell signaling, and your immune system relies on efficient cell signaling to respond quickly to threats. Perhaps this is why research shows that supplementing zinc can help reduce the length of the common cold and reduce the likelihood of infection in older patients.
Copper is another vital mineral, used in a number of essential bodily functions. Secure AV delivers 1 mg in a single dose. It’s needed to build strong cross-links inside bone tissue, helps maintain the thyroid and, when present, copper improves the body’s ability to absorb iron.
It’s also an important mineral for immune health. Copper is required to produce neutrophils, a valuable part of the innate immune system. Neutrophils are highly mobile, short-lived cells that travel quickly to infection sites and kill pathogens. In copper-deficient people, it’s also common to see reduced white blood cell activity, which may increase the likelihood of infection.
Every dose of Secure AV comes with 76 mg of L-lysine, an essential amino acid. Amino acids are the building blocks of protein, and lysine is needed to make collagen, a skin protein. Collagen supports and connects skin cells together, creating a barrier against infection and improving blood flow to nearby tissues.
Multiple animal studies have demonstrated L-lysine’s beneficial effects on wound and fracture healing. Faster wound healing means a lower chance of wound infection.
Immune boosting herbs
Secure AV is also packed with a blend of herbs designed to regulate and boost immune function. Secure AV’s blend includes astragalus, echinacea, elderberry, golden seal, milk thistle, pau d’arco, reishi, lion’s mane, cordyceps and quercetin. Together, these herbs help stimulate immune cells and reduce the body’s stress response to infection, which can help your immune system perform better.
Secure AV also comes with an enzyme blend that includes protease, lipase, phytase, alpha-galactosidase, glucoamylase, pectinase, peptidase, cellulase and hemicellulase. Together, these enzymes improve your body’s uptake of Secure AV’s vitamins, minerals and herbs, ensuring maximum benefits with every dose.
What’s Not In Secure AV?
What’s not in Secure AV is just as important as what is in it. Secure AV is free of many food-based allergens and intolerance triggers. Specifically, Secure AV is dairy, lactose, peanut, soy, sugar and wheat-free. It is also vegetarian-friendly and can be incorporated into a kosher diet.
