The key nutrients that help support the immune system include; vitamins A, C and E, vitamin B5 (Pantothenic Acid), necessary for the production of antibodies; Choline, helps the liver in its role as a detoxifier; vitamins B12 and Folic Acid, necessary for cell production; vitamin B3 (Niacin), aids the digestive system; Iron, works on blood cells and helps build resistance; Zinc, necessary for cell production, enzyme and other body processes; the B vitamins are also important in the release of energy from food. Many of these nutrients work better with other allied nutrients, hence balanced diet is always the watchword. Some people on restricted diets may require additional supplementation. Proto-col’s defence contains a full range of vitamins, minerals and other nutrients. Amongst these are Acidophilus to supplement the bowel flora, Aloe Vera (as a 200x concentrate) and Atriplex, the biblical herb that contains trace minerals. There is also a larger amount of Vitamin C (with Bioflavonoids), B5 (Pantothenic Acid) and Biotin than in comparable products. The line-up is completed with a full range of macro-minerals and trace minerals. Trace minerals act as catalysts in enzyme production.
