What is Immune Support?


Everyone knows your immune system needs nutrients and a general healthy lifestyle (sleep, stress management) in order to function at its best. Your immune system acts as your body’s defense, so it’s important to keep it strong.

For times when you’re feeling off, Hilma Immune Support boosts your immune system and gives your body what it needs to power through and get back on your feet.

Immune Support is made from proven natural ingredients like Vitamin C from a natural source, Camu-Camu berry, and also accompanies it with Zinc, an essential immune supporting mineral, and other healing herbs like Echinacea, Turmeric, Ginger, and Ivy Leaf Extract.

All without dyes and fillers, and less than 1g of sugar. Commonly used products can have over 6g of sugar, which can actually suppress your immune system!


Quality Ingredients Matter

Vitamin C
Hilma’s Vitamin C is from a whole food source –the Camu Camu berry–which has one of the highest Vitamin C contents in the world. Vitamin C acts as a cofactor for a number of enzymes and metabolic reactions in the body that are responsible for maintaining health and wellness.

Zinc is an essential mineral that has been found to support immune health through a number of preclinical and clinical studies. Zinc plays a role in many bodily functions including immunity, cell division, the reproductive system, and cognitive development. In fact, it’s required for the activity of about 100 different enzymes that are involved in anything from regulating cellular metabolism and gene expression to bolstering our immune function and protein folding. It’s ability to support the immune system has been of particular interest to researchers as they’ve identified these benefits as well as discovered that approximately 12% of the US population is at risk for Zinc deficiency.

Echinacea has been shown to stimulate macrophages (a type of white blood cell) and other cells of the innate immune system. Macrophages are important for immune support because they are part of the body's defense system, fighting against microbes in the body.

Clinical and preclinical studies have shown Turmeric to support the immune and respiratory systems, mainly due to curcumin, one of the active compounds in turmeric that is a antioxidant agent. There are over 12,500 peer-reviewed articles published that support the healing properties of turmeric.

Clinical research shows that Ginger benefits the immune and respiratory systems. When mixed with water, it can exhibit its immune boosting properties and help soothe the throat.

Ivy Leaf Extract
Ivy Leaf Extract has been clinically shown to help soothe the throat and support respiratory health.
