Winter Immune Defence

Posted on 03/05/2014

Winter has well and truly set in here in South Oz!!! Last night at my son's first under 9's footy game for the season, he was blessed to be playing in on and off again rain and the temp being just 9 C, poor little men- they loved it any way, it was us sooky parents that were rugged up to the hilt complaining about how cold it was.

With winter comes colds, flu's, stress and our immune systems lowering, personally for me my favourite immune booster is Martin & Pleasances Ki Immune Defence and Energy Formula


Ki Immune Defence and Energy Formula is formulated to enhance the immune system and at the same time boost the body’s energy reserves. The plant extracts help increase the number of white blood cells and enhance the activity of the body’s natural killer cells to help promote a healthy immune system.

Traditionally used to assist:

  • Immune system
  • Energy and stamina
  • Reduce risk of colds
  • Fatigue
  • Whole body tonic
  • Recovery during convalescence
  • Antioxidant & cardiovascular support
  • Promote healthy digestion
  • Assists optimal & healthy aging
The Formula
Astragalus is a major herb prescribed in China for strengthening the immune system and also has the added benefit of being a potent energy tonic and powerful antioxidant.

Ki Immune system and energy production support Shiitake is a Japanese mushroom used in medicine to enhance the immune system and increase stamina and endurance. Lentinan, a polysaccharide in Shiitake is a widely recognised and respected compound to help strengthen the immune system.

Olive leaf is hugely popular around the world being used as a general health tonic, antioxidant and to help maintain a healthy immune system. It supports a healthy cardiovascular system including normal circulatory function and the health of the eyes, skin and blood vessels.

Antioxidants help protect the body (reduce the risk of cell damage) from potentially harmful free radicals (highly reactive chemicals) which may be generated by lifestyle factors such as excess dietary fats, pollutants, cigarette smoke and alcohol ingestion.

Each Ki tablet contains extracts equivalent to 10,000 mg of dried herbs therefore only one or two tablets a day is a strong dosage without the need for taking numerous tablets multiple times per day.

As you have read above there are lots of reasons why you should be taking Ki Immune Defence and Energy Formula this winter or whenever your immune system has been put under too much stress, which unfortunately happens too often in this day and age. 


Other ways to keep healthy this winter include, increasing your Vitamin C dose, eating healthy, keep exercising-yes I know it's cold outside but trust me you will feel better once you have done your workout, sleep well, boost your intake of Zinc and make sure you drink plenty of water.

Keep warm and stay healthy xx
