A Powerful Combination of Immune Support Herbs
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.
Known as “the king of bitters,” Andrographis paniculata is well respected in the Chinese tradition as well as the Ayurvedic tradition. Used as a bitter tonic and for rejuvenation, it is considered a “rasayana” herb. Andrographis supports healthy lymphocyte proliferation and, adaptogen-like, has beneficial effects on a wide-range of body systems, including the healthy functioning of the respiratory, cardio, neuro, digestive and immune systems. It also supports emotional health, helping to protect against the physical effects of stress, along with healthy liver functioning, which helps clear the body of toxins.
In Asia, particularly Japan, burdock (Arctium lappa) is used as a food as well as a support for good health. A member of the thistle family, it is native to Europe and Asia and now grows throughout North America. Burdock has bitter principles that support healthy digestion, and it also supports healthy liver, blood and lymph system functioning, to aid in detoxifying the body.
Coptis (Coptis chinensis) has been used traditionally to support the digestive system. It soothes occasionally irritated tissue and helps the liver remove waste. Its main constituent is berberine, although it has a diverse group of active alkaloids, including epiberberine, palmatine and coptisine.

Forsythia and Japanese Honeysuckle
Often used in combination, Forsythia (Forsythia suspensa) and Japanese Honeysuckle (Lonicera japonica) support respiratory and immune system health. Both have many active constituents, including triterpene glycosides, flavonoids and lignans. These herbs help maintain a balanced inflammation response.
When you are trying to support a return to balance and health, the combination of herbs in IMMUNE Bac Pro™ can help you reach your goal more rapidly. Like a good exercise regime, a combination of strengthening elements delivers stronger results than a single component.
