Your immune system takes care of you, but have you ever wondered how to take care of it? We all know that a healthy diet and lifestyle play a part, but what other options may help with immune support? Fortunately, there are several micronutrients that may help with immune support.
How The Immune System Works
We often refer to the immune system as one thing, which is true, but in the same way that a mechanical wristwatch, with all of its gears and interlocking parts, is one thing. The immune system is astonishingly and brilliantly complex, but can be thought of simply as three layers of protection:
- barriers like skin and mucous membranes
- innate immunity that we are born with
- adaptive immunity that develops after exposure
Supporting Healthy Immunity
The Healthy Core Support Kit contains vitamin, mineral, and bioflavonoid immune support.ᶧ Vitamin C may help to support all three parts of immunity—skin and mucous membrane barriers, innate immunity, and adaptive immunity.ᶧ Because of its role in collagen production, it helps to keep skin and mucous membranes healthy and intact.ᶧ It may also help with antioxidant support and protection from free radicals.ᶧ1 Vitamin D receptors exist on many immune cells of both innate and adaptive immunity, and studies have shown that maintaining normal vitamin D levels supports healthy immunity.ᶧ In addition, vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol) helps with the absorption of dietary calcium,contributing to strongbones and teeth.ᶧ2 Vitamin K2 (MK-7) works synergistically with vitamin D to help support bone health.ᶧ3 Zinc supports both innate and adaptive immunity, and studies have shown that maintaining normal zinc levels supports healthy immunity.ᶧ Zinc may also help with antioxidant support,ᶧ4 and the bisglycinate form offers superior bioavailability.ᶧ5 Quercetin is a bioflavonoid that may help with antioxidant support and has synergistic effects with both vitamin C and Zinc.ᶧ6,7 It may boost the effectiveness of vitamin C and may help zinc enter the cells, where it can do the most good for immune support.ᶧ6,7
The products in this kit work together to support the three main facets of healthy immunity through maintaining healthy skin and mucous membrane barriers, maintaining innate immunity, and supporting adaptive immunity.ᶧ The addition of quercetin boosts the effects of both vitamin C and zinc for immune support.ᶧ6,7 Quercetin may also help maintain a normal-strength immune response.ᶧ8
Vitamin C– helps support all three facets of immune protection, and may help with antioxidant support by neutralizing free radicals.ᶧ1
Vitamin D3/K2– D3 helps support both innate and adaptive immunity, and K2 works synergistically with D3 to support bone health.ᶧ2,3
Zinc– helps support both innate and adaptive immunity, and may also help with antioxidant support.ᶧ4
Quercetin – helps with antioxidant support and has synergistic effects with both vitamin C and zinc.ᶧ6,7It may help zinc to enter the cells, where it may do the most good for immune support.ᶧ7
When we support the immune system with needed building blocks, the immune system may optimally support us.ᶧ

You may premix up to 48 hours in advance.
There are 600 drops in each 1oz bottle and 1200 drops in each 2oz bottle of our liquid products.
When we say our products are highly bioavailable, we mean that all of our products are designed to be better absorbed by the body on a cellular level.NutraMedix’s products are in dropper form. Our products are liquid for two main reasons:
- To extract the desired components from the natural and raw materials we are deriving our supplements from, and
- To ensure our supplements are delivering the full-spectrum benefits of the extract.
To do this, our liquid products contain 20-24% food-grade ethanol which helps the compounds of our products that are either water-soluble or ethanol-soluble, to deliver more nutrients to the cells. This process gives you the full benefit of the compound and its raw materials, rather than just a portion of it.
The recommended doses for NutraMedix products are intended for an average size adult that weighs between 120-170 pounds. For children 4 and older, for every 30 pounds, a fourth of the dose is recommended.
All NutraMedix products are compatible with one another.
Yes. All NutraMedix products are thoroughly tested to ensure this.
