Boosting Immune System Health
Supplements to help boost your immune system
Though testing is best to understand an individual’s nutrient deficiencies and rebalance the body for optimal function, Dr. Wang often recommends a basic immune system boosting protocol for protection against illness.* Supplements are a regimen on top of the health tips that are suggested for summer — and basically all year round.

D3 5000 minimum 2 capsules per day. Vitamin D is essential in immune function. Deficiency in vitamin D is associated with increased autoimmunity (attacking one’s own body) as well as an increased susceptibility to infection.
Immunotix 250 1 capsule per day. This one single compound will protect your immune system to the greatest. This product is backed by over $250M of research and has been studied by the Department of Defense, used by firefighters, and tested against threats like Anthrax. The effectiveness of other immune compounds like mushrooms, echinacea, etc. pales in comparison to that of this product.
Probiomax Complete 1 capsule per day. Consists of 14 highly researched strains of bacteria that have a strong immune focus. The beneficial effects of probiotics have been demonstrated in many diseases. Probiotics have shown therapeutic potential for diseases, including several immune response-related diseases, such as allergy, eczema, viral infection, and potentiating vaccination responses.
These three supplements provide the immune system with the ingredients it needs to protect itself from infection.
What happens if I get sick?
For patients with a compromised immune system, Dr. Wang often will recommend the following nutritional supplements.*
Immunotix 500. Taken as an oral capsule, it primes and mobilizes the cells that support the body’s first-line immune response.
D3 Liquid. Vitamin D liquid for the influence of immune function.
Xcellent A. High potency Vitamin A in the form of softgels. If you are presented with a virus or major immune issue there is amazing research in 75,000-100,000 i.u daily of Vitamin A for 7-10 days max.
Viragraphis. This herbal immune support supplement is most effective upon onset of illness, and is often used for all types of viruses.
These products are all available on my Xymogen dispensary, powered by WholeScripts.com.
