Alphadefend

Alphadefend® is based on Vitamins C, D, A, B2, B6, B12, E and Folic acid with Copper, Magnesium, Selenium and Zinc. The Vitamins C, D, A, B2, B6, B12, Folic acid, Copper, Zinc and Selenium contribute to the normai function ofthe immune system. The Vitamins C, B6, B12 contribute to normai energy-yielding metabolism, to the functioning of the nervous system, to the normai psychological function and, together with Magnesium, are useful to tiredness and fatigue reduction. The Vitamins B2, E, Copper, Selenium and Zinc contribute to the protection of cells from oxidative stress.

Immune support by micronutrients

It has since been established that the complex, integrated immune system needs multiple specific micronutrients, including vitamins A, D, C, E, B6, and B12, folate, zinc, iron, copper, and selenium, which play vital, often synergistic roles at every stage of the immune response. Adequate amounts are essential to ensure the proper function of physical barriers and immune cells; however, daily micronutrient intakes necessary to support immune function may be higher than current recommended dietary allowances. Certain populations have inadequate dietary micronutrient intakes, and situations with increased requirements (e.g., infection, stress, and pollution) further decrease stores within the body. Several micronutrients may be deficient and even marginal deficiency may impair immunity. Available evidence indicates that supplementation with multiple micronutrients with immune-supporting roles may modulate immune function and reduce the risk of infection.
