Prepare for the Cold and Flu Season with Premier Research Labs

Premier Research Labs manufactures all food-based, live-source supplements, with no toxic additives, fillers, binders or excipients. They work to support the body on a biochemical and energetic level. Therefore, the supplements not only provide the nutrients needed to support chemical pathways, but they also raise the resonance (body of light) or energy of the cell. It is through this combination, that you will see more profound results than with any other product, since other products either work on a biochemical model, or an energetic one.

In order to strengthen the immune system to prevent the onset of the cold or flu, I suggest the following supplements:

1. Vitamin D3 Serum (liquid)

We all have to have heard of the many benefits of vitamin D and fortunately they are true. Vitamin D has shown to activate over 300 antimicrobials in the body, effectively preventing the onset of the cold or flu. Now the catch is that vitamin D needs to be activated by the liver and the kidneys, as well as effectively processed with the help of the gallbladder (it’s a fat-soluble vitamin), making it a difficult vitamin to utilize. What this means is that many people are not able to reach high enough levels of blood saturation of the vitamin for it to be a cold and flu fighter, because of their health status. So what I propose is that patients increase their intake, and take D3 with a meal.

Premier Research Labs’ D3 serum is made with an olive oil base and is simple to take. It has NOT been extracted with hexane (a petrochemical) and it has been humanely derived from sheep’s wool. Compared to Vitamin D2 (used in food fortification), research indicates that Vitamin D3 can be more than 3 times as effective as D2 in maintaining and raising vitamin D blood levels. I suggest taking about 12 drops as a loading dose for 4-6 weeks, and then moving down to 3-6 drops daily. If you have health issues with your gallbladder, kidneys or liver, I would recommend staying on a higher dose. It is always a good idea for clients to get their Vitamin D levels tested.

Other benefits of D3 Serum:

1. Protects mucosal and breast tissues

2. Essential for bone health: D3 is necessary for the absorption of calcium

3. Protects the nerves (myelin sheath)

4. Increases cognition, memory and mood 5. Cardiovascular health: maintains a healthy inflammatory response, blood vessel relaxation and blood flow

Retail Cost: $10.95 for a .5 fluid ounce bottle.

2. Colostrum IgG (powder and capsules)

Colostrum is the single most potent immune boosting substance I have found, being extremely rich in immunoglobulins (natural antibodies) at 25%. It is an excellent stand- in immune system to prevent illness, when you are sick or dealing with recovery of injury. Colostrum is also excellent for babies and children as it has all of the growth factors needed for health and even comes in powder form. It supports beneficial bacteria in the digestive tract, healthy oxygen transport in the blood (lactoferrin), and is the richest source of natural MSM, a sulfur compound which helps promote a strong and healthy immune system. In addition, Colostrum is the only known food source of NAA (N-Acetylneuraminic Acid), one of the 8 healing sugars, necessary for optimal human physiology and growth. Although NAA is made by the body, levels decline with age and stress, leaving most people deficient. NAA promotes brain development, learning, memory and enhanced performance. NAA is an immune modulator and promotes healthy cholesterol within the normal range.

Colostrum comes from the first milk of cows, which is the most nutrient- rich, bioavailable form of immune boosting factors. It contains everything that a newborn needs to survive, making it a concentration of nutrients needed for a life form. Premier Research Labs sources its colostrum from organic cows: grass-fed, antibiotic and hormone-free, and truly pampered beings. It can be taken as a supplement, or the powder can be added into food. It tastes like milk, so it goes great in smoothies, breakfast cereals (porridge, oatmeal), or can just be added to milk itself.

Other benefits:

1. Diarrhea, and loose stools

2. Poor spleen function (low white blood cell count)

3. Poor breast milk production

4. Add to a baby formula

5. Failure to thrive

6. Prevents recurring upper respiratory conditions

Cost: Colostrum 5 oz. Powder ($64.95) – better value than capsules (50 servings) Colostrum Capsules ($14.95)

In order to address and tackling a current cold/flu, I recommend the following:

3. Nucleo Immune (capsules)

Nucleotides are fundamental nutrients, like minerals, which must be supplied from outside the body (each of our cells contains 6 billion nucleotides). They are the building blocks of RNA and DNA, which allow them to promote cell regeneration and rapidly boost the immune system. Research shows that nucleotides can diminish the symptoms and duration of the common cold as well as the flu. In research trials, nearly all patients on a therapeutic course of nucleotides reported significantly less discomfort associated with the symptoms of colds and flu and experienced a substantially accelerated recovery. These symptoms included sinus pain, earache, headache, diminished taste, high body temperature, dry mouth, swollen glands and muscle aches.

I have seen some of the greatest results with this product, not only in preventing a cold and flu but also dead stopping one once you have it. Furthermore, having this around the house is excellent because it can expedite any healing process, whether from illness, injury or surgery by 67%.

Other key immune supporting nutrients:

1. Chlorella

2. Kelp

3. Noni

4. Nopal Cactus

5. Dandelion

6. Turmeric

7. Bitter orange and bitter melon

8. Thyme

9. Self Heal

10. Pacific Yew

11. Tomato (lycopene)

12. Beta-sitosterol *Off-label dosage: Preventatively I take about 6 daily, and for acute conditions (meaning you have the cold/flu, or are injured or ill) I would take 12 daily. In some severe cases, up to 24 capsules is taken daily.

Cost: $24.95 for 60 capsules

4. ImmunoVen (capsules)

Nature’s broad-spectrum antibiotic. ImmunoVen is the best choice product for tackling any chronic or acute infection that is from an unknown pathogen. Whether the infection is viral or bacterial, ImmunoVen is the best FIRST choice. I personally like to pair ImmunoVen with the Nucleo Immune for the most effective attack against infection. The two products work synergistically, as the Nucleo Immune activates and supports the immune system, while the ImmunoVen acts as the anti-infective agent.

Its key anti-infective agent is Olive Leaf, which actually help destroy viruses, fungi, bacteria, and parasites that cause disease. Although olive leaf extract is capable of killing a broad range of infection-causing agents, it does not harm the beneficial bacteria in your body, unlike antibiotics. Many studies show it to be very safe, nontoxic and effective, even for children.

It’s other key antimicrobial agents are Reishi and Coriolus. Coriolus is one of the world’s most researched plants for serious immune challenges. It is often referred to as “the medicinal mushroom.” Research from Japan and China has shown it to be 90% effective against cancer.

Reishi is unrivaled in its long history as one of the most powerful herbs to boost healthy immune system function. It contains unique, rare polysaccharides, which have been proven to increase the RNA and DNA in the bone marrow, where the body makes B cells. Studies show that Reishi promotes both B cells and T cells, specialized cells that are a critical part of the immune system.

Other powerful infection-fighting nutrients:

1. Noni

2. Coriander

3. Kelp *Off-label dosage recommendation: adults – 6 capsules daily up to 12 capsules

Cost: $19.95 for 60 capsules

5. Multi Immune (capsules)

Multi Immune is the product you will use when Nucleo Immune and ImmunoVen do not work. Multi Immune is a key anti-infective agent that targets upper respiratory/mucosal membrane infections, specifically those that are chronic and do not find resolution with other methods. It was designed for the Avian Flu, and any infection of bovine or avian descent, which often are superbugs.

This formula has been created in response to the growing number of resistant infections that are plaguing the US today. Unfortunately, our food industry has created a situation where we are more vulnerable than ever. The majority of chicken, dairy and meat available today is created with extremely unhealthy processes that cause the need of widespread use of antibiotics. As a result, those who consume these products are susceptible to a new host of never before seen infections, one of them being the Avian or Bird Flu. Furthermore, by the consumption of these animal products, we are exposing ourselves to antibiotics that can lead to antibiotic resistance in the future. Therefore, Multi Immune has been created in order to be a natural answer to these new types of infections where conventional antibiotic use is deemed not only harmful, but also futile or ineffective.

Key Ingredient: IGY (immunoglobulin) from whole egg concentrate. Other Key Ingredients:

1. Colostrum

2. Nucleotides

3. Olive Leaf *Off Label-Dosage: I personally recommend starting with 6 capsules daily, but even moving up 12 capsules daily if needed.

Cost: $21.95 for 60 capsules
