Product of the Month – Quick Defense

Quick Defense


















The immune system has a very simple but crucial job: to support the body against anything that may cause it harm. Unfortunately, many factors can depress immune system

function. A poor diet, smoking, and failing to get enough exercise and sleep can all weaken immunity, as can aging, stress, and exposure to pollution. Because immune challenges can take hold quickly, it’s important to support the body in mounting an effective defense.

Quick Defense supports the body’s rapid response to immune stressors. Made with certified organic Echinacea, Black Elderberry, and Ginger extracts, plus wild-harvested Andrographis, Quick Defense is highly effective when taken at onset. It has a high concentration of Echinacea Alkylamides – the constituents most effective at initiating an immune response. Conditions that come rapidly can go rapidly, when you give your body the right support. Gaia Herbs’ RapidRelief products deliver results fast so you can get back to health and well-being.

Echinacea and Black Elderberry support the immune system

Echinacea is an extensively studied herb, supported by many human clinical trials. Results have been largely positive and show that Echinacea effectively promotes a rapid immune response to seasonal stressors, supports the respiratory system, and encourages healthy drainage of the lymphatic system. Elderberry has long been used in traditional cultures to support immune function. Two human clinical studies have found that Black Elderberry helps stimulate the immune system and supports the body when challenged by foreign invaders.

Andrographis promotes immune health

While it isn’t as well-known as Echinacea, Andrographis has undergone multiple human clinical trials showing it is effective for promoting immune response. It is a traditional botanical medicine that has been used extensively in India, China, and Thailand to support many functions of the body. Gaia Herbs formulated Quick Defense with a variety of immune-supportive herbal extracts that promote sinus and throat tissue health during times of stress. Herbs such as black elderberry ginger and echinacea promote a healthy inflammatory response to seasonal stressors with immune-modulating flavonoids and other constituents. Gaia Herbs also included an extract of andrographis in Quick Defense which has been studied for its ability to promote relief from fevers and sore throats. In fact one major study found that in 80 cases of fever treated with andrographis 70 achieved normal body temperature after just 48 hours.
