PLANTIVA® INTRODUCES IMMUNE DX™
Botanical-based Supplement Provides a Natural Immunity Boosting Approach to
Maintaining Health during the Cold Weather Season
OJAI, CA – According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), each year, more than 200,000 people suffer from respiratory-
Immune Dx is a patented, dietary supplement formula clinically tested to reduce the frequency and severity of respiratory tract immune challenges by enhancing the body’s resistance.
“When the initial signs of an immune challenge first arise, there is a crucial window of opportunity during which the immune system needs immediate support,” explains Stephen Morrissey, OMD, Co-Founder and CEO of Plantiva. “This initial stage is often characterized by blockage of the immune circulation through stagnant lymph, blood, and energy, which can cause stiffness, fatigue, aches, and problems with temperature regulation.”
To address these immune challenges and help the body during this crucial stage, Immune Dx takes a two-pronged approach:
1) Immune Dx boosts immune function in general.*
2) Immune Dx mobilizes immune system blockages by re-establishing the circulation of lymph, blood, and energy.*
To accomplish this approach and provide just what the body needs to address challenges before they take hold, Immune Dx utilizes a natural, proprietary formula made from the following key plant extracts:
• Stephania, Epimedium, and Eleuthero specifically target the early stages of immune discomfort when aching and stiff muscles indicate the presence of an immune challenge. These ingredients improve circulation of lymph and blood and relax muscle stiffness that can interfere with mobilization of an optimal immune response.
• Astragalus and Dong Quai is a separate combination within ImmuneDx shown to significantly strengthen immunity and to improve resistance to external challenges.
• A small dose of ginseng has immune benefits and strengthens the lungs and respiratory system.
• Echinacea mildly enhances immune function.
Immune Dx was developed in a complementary medical clinic in the U.S., as well as through immune research cooperation with the Beijing University of Traditional Chinese Medicine. It has been scientifically demonstrated to help improve immune T-cell proliferation, antibody generation, and the activity of macrophages, which are the body’s first line of immune defense.
In a five-month controlled and randomized clinical study on 61 subjects, Immune Dx significantly reduced the incidence, severity, and duration of respiratory immune challenges.
As a teacher who encounters a veritable universe of potential immune aggravants every day, Carol O., from Washington, was successfully able to boost her health and immunity by taking Immune Dx regularly. “I haven’t gotten a single [respiratory condition]. This was in the midst of the rest of the faculty, staff, and students who had immune challenges week after miserable week,” she gloated.
“While we promote the use of Immune Dx at the first signs of respiratory immune difficulties, we also encourage consumers to leverage its immune strengthening ability anytime their systems are challenged, including times of heavy stress, travel, exposure, and seasonal changes, advised Dr. Morrissey.
Each Plantiva® Immune Dx bottle contains 60 capsules with a suggested retail price of $21.95. Plantiva recommends that adults ingest 2-3 capsules once to twice a day, alternating two weeks on the product and one week off, or as needed. Distribution information is available at www.plantiva.com.
