Immune – Vits & Mins provides targeted nutrient support for immunity in balanced zinc to copper ratio with a variety of zincs to improve absorption and therapeutic action.


  • Nutrient Deficiencies – Vitamin C, D, Zinc, and Copper (balanced optimal 10:1 Zn/Cu ratio) 
  • Immunity – Colds, Flus, Respiratory Health and Allergies  
  • Longevity, Skin, Wound Healing, Prostate & Digestion – A variety of zincs to improve absorption with added zinc carnosine to support digestive lining health.

Feature Ingredients

  • Zinc is vital for immunity, fighting colds & flu, and many other vital health conditions. One of the most important roles zinc has is in an antioxidant enzyme associated with longevity and protection from oxidative stress known as copper/zinc superoxide dismutase.63-66  Many people are deficient in zinc, especially the elderly. Excess zinc supplementation by itself can lead to a copper deficiency leading to anaemia and other health risks. Research in both animal and human models confirms that the optimal zinc to copper ratio is about 10:1. 
  • This formula is balanced with vital nutrients for immunity including zinc with copper, vitamin C, and vitamin D.  

Immune – Vits & Mins is a professionally formulated combination of the key vitamins and minerals that are needed to support immunity during cold and flu season. Providing Zinc and Copper is their optimal ratio of 10:1.  

  • Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, is necessary for the growth, development and repair of all body tissues. It's involved in many body functions, including the formation of collagen, absorption of iron, the immune system, wound healing, enzymatic production of certain neurotransmitters, and the maintenance of cartilage, bones, and teeth. It is thought to help many health conditions including preventing more serious complications of the common cold, cardiovascular disease, asthma, cancer, diabetes, prenatal health, H.pylori, stress, recovery, anti-ageing and even wrinkling skin.1-12 Buffered calcium ascorbate is added as the source of vitamin C for a gentler impact on the digestive system and higher absorption than ascorbic acid.13 
  • Vitamin D helps preserve youthful cognitive function, supports bone and immune system health, helps maintain already-healthy blood pressure, encourages a healthy inflammatory response and promotes endothelial function. 14-18 
  • Zinc is essential for immunity, fighting colds and flu, healing of the digestive lining, healthy skin, bone health, growth and physical development, prostate health, fertility, and for the metabolism of proteins, fats, and carbohydrates. It is essential for the function of white blood cells to protect the body from invasion by bacteria and viruses, cancer, and to regulate inflammation and wound healing.19-62 One of the most important roles zinc has is in copper/zinc superoxide dismutase, an antioxidant enzyme associated with longevity and protection against oxidative stress.63-66 Many people are deficient in zinc, especially the elderly. Over supplementation with zinc by itself can result in copper deficiency, which can lead to reduced levels of the copper-based antioxidants enzymes cytosolic superoxide dismutase and ceruloplasmin, increased total and LDL (“bad”) cholesterol, anaemia, reductions in the body’s levels of enkephalins (natural pain-killing molecules), and cardiac dysfunction. Research in both animal and human models confirms that the optimal zinc to copper ratio is about 10:1. This is in comparison to many multivitamins that contain a 23.5:1 ratio or zinc supplements without any copper. 
  • Copper is an often overlooked mineral that is critical for immunity, collagen formation, bone strength, blood cell maturation, iron transport, glucose metabolism, heart muscle contraction, host defence mechanisms and brain development.67-70 Deficiencies of copper are linked to low white blood cells (leukocytes and neutrophils), impaired bone metabolism, poor glucose metabolism, sore and inflamed joints, neurological dysfunction, and increased levels of Advanced Glycation Endproducts (AGE) – which increase the ageing process.69,70 It is all about balance as excess copper can cause health risks as well. Apart from the reason that copper’s benefits have been ignored is from the myth that copper is a “pro-oxidant” which might accelerate free radical damage in the body. This is based on the Fenton reaction, whereby “transition metals” (such as iron and copper), when present in their free, ionic form, can catalytically convert the mildly-dangerous hydrogen peroxide into the vicious hydroxyl radical. However, the body doesn’t contain high enough free, ionic copper to be of concern. This is in contrast to the much higher levels (millions of times higher) that have been used in artificial test tube studies showing that ionic copper can accelerate the oxidation of LDL (‘bad’) cholesterol. Additionally, controlled human studies have shown that even at high intakes (up to 7 milligrams a day), copper supplements don’t increase free radical damage in the body, but actually tend to decrease it, which may be linked to its role in antioxidant defences. 

Get what you need by using this simple all-in-one nutrient formula to keep you ahead of the game during winter,  during allergy season, when you feel run down or any time you need an immune boost.
