Immunostimulants

The most important group of herbs for all of us, young and old, living at this time in history when pollution, cancer and other diseases have reached epidemic proportions. These are herbs that strengthen and nourish the body’s natural immunity to disease and toxins. Many of these herbs are adaptogens; they increase the body’s resistance to a wide variety of stresses and have a balancing and restorative effect on the body as a whole. See the Book Adaptogens. The majority of immunostimulants contain phytonutrients that are powerful antioxidants or directly stimulate the bodies endogenous production of antioxidants. Antioxidants enhance health and longevity by neutralizing free radicals - unstable oxygen molecules that damage cells, causing many degenerative diseases and the aging process itself.
