Super Immunity + Heart Health Olive Leaf Extract Liquid

1 tablespoon (15 mL), twice daily

This liquid supplement is rich in polyphenols that can only be found naturally in olive leaves. For many years, olive leaves have been brewed into teas for their immunity benefits, and Wellgrove Super Immunity + Heart Health liquid is a modern and convenient take on this old-time practice. The liquid is rich in immune-boosting antioxidants. (1)(2) We recommend the liquid for immunity if you really want to coat the throat and get the extra level of protection. 

Complementary ingredients:

Probiotics

Take a minimum 10 billion CFU live and active cultures, once daily

Probiotic supplements are a simple way to improve your microbiome and have been shown to decrease the chances of catching seasonal bugs that often plague us. (4) Look for higher potency products, with 10billion CFU of live and active cultures for best efficacy.

Zinc

30 mg, 1-3 times daily during symptom onset 

Zinc lozenges when taken during an immune health issue may help to shorten the duration of symptoms. (5) It is important to remember that taking super high-dose zinc for a long period of time is not recommended, so use only when symptoms warrant.

Supplemental Material

Supplemental materials have been provided by Wellgrove for the purpose of this protocol
  1. Aim for 7-8 hours of sleep per night. Sleep is highly tied to our immune system, so getting behind on sleep can result in a run down immune system that is less able to respond to challenges. 
  2. Incorporate exercise into your daily routine. Regular physical activity helps to prime our immune system.
  3. If you smoke, quit!
  4. Eat a healthy diet to allow your body to focus on keeping your immune system fueled.
