What is the best all natural immune system booster from a health food store?
Some of the most popular natural products for boosting the immune system are Colostrum, Mushrooms (Maitake, Shiitake, and Reishi), IP-6 (Inositol Hexaphosphate), Beta Glucans, Elderberry, Echinacea (should be taken short-term only), and any antioxidants. As far as Probiotics, that’s the beneficial bacteria that lives in your intestinal tract. If you are taking antibiotics for a short time, you should get some good Probiotics to take after the antibiotics are completely finished. If you take them together, the antibiotics will kill the Probiotics before they can be beneficial and it might lessen the potency or effect of the antibiotics… but you’ll need the Probiotics to replenish your intestinal flora after the antibiotics have killed them all off. Protein powders are just protein (like a hamburger)… they don’t directly impact your immune system at all. Good luck!
