When your body is used to a diet that is high in carbs and sugars, going straight into a full keto diet can be quite challenging. It requires your metabolism to be re-programmed, and it demands a high level of self-control. Both of these factors can make diving right into the keto diet stressful, physically and emotionally.
A short-term boost to support our immune, digestive and lymph systems may help us achieve a return to balance and wellness more rapidly. Supporting the liver is critical to maintaining a healthy immune system, as is managing the physical effects of stress. Redd Remedies® IMMUNE Bac Pro™ brings together a powerful combination of trusted herbs to help when your body needs additional support to bring it back into harmony with itself and with the surrounding environment.
Coptis and burdock are complementary herbs that support immune health. They are often used in combination in the Chinese tradition, as that enhances their healthful benefits. Both have long histories in herbal traditions, and both are currently undergoing modern research trials to validate their effectiveness.
A combination of genetics, environmental triggers and chronic stress can place a heavy burden on the liver and the lymph and immune systems, and leave the body struggling to regain balance and health. The innate immune system, which responds to protect us from outside substances, can become hypersensitive from overexposure to irritants and can trigger excessive response in the adaptive immune system.
Supporting our immune system can go a long way towards helping us stay healthy, especially when we are exposed to all the elements in our daily environments. It can help our innate immune system keep everything in balance and functioning properly, reducing the likelihood that any dormant issue will develop into a health problem.
