When cold and flu season strikes, our patients count on Immune Boost to keep their immune system functioning at its peak. The name alone will tell anyone what this popular Booster Shot does, but the benefits go beyond simple cold prevention. Our Immune Boost is formulated to optimize your metabolism and immune functionality by combining two powerful antioxidants known for their association with immune health: zinc and Vitamin C. Let’s take a look at how this booster promotes overall health.
Why Vitamin C? It is fairly common knowledge that Vitamin C is an immune system champion, but not many people are familiar with why or how it works. Significant study of Vitamin C shows that it supports healthy skin and keeps it supple as a first line of defense, as well as helping to fuel immune response to invading pathogens, including supporting production of B- and T-cells. As an added bonus, Vitamin C enhances weight management efforts. People with higher levels of Vitamin C burn up to 30% more fat during regular exercise! As one of the most trusted Chicago weight loss clinics for over 40 years, an added boost to weight management efforts is something we like to offer our patients.
Why Zinc? Zinc is a vital nutrient for every body, but doesn’t get anywhere near the same publicity as Vitamin C. In fact, it is the perfect partner to Vitamin C, as it plays a vital role in supporting cell health and keeping inflammation under control. This means that it acts to keep the immune system from getting out of control. It also means that zinc can fight inflammatory infection and inflammatory diseases.
What does Immune Boost do better than a supplement? Immune Boost provides a concentrated dose of two powerful antioxidants, offering a direct increase in blood levels of both Vitamin C and zinc. Not only does this provide an immediate significant boost, which is shown to yield the best effect in those fighting off infection, it also offers an added benefit by pairing the two. Research has shown that the best overall effect from Vitamin C and zinc occurs when the two are taken together. Patients recover faster and more thoroughly from the common cold, as well as realizing a host of other benefits:
- Strengthens the immune system
- Lowers hypertension

- Maintains the elasticity of the skin
- Helps the body fight inflammatory diseases
