Organic* Echinacea Purpurea
Echinacea (Echinacea purpurea) has significant immunomodulatory activity. Components in Echinacea activate the immune cells that are involved in the innate defense, such as macrophages, polymorphonuclear leukocytes and natural killer cells. There is also evidence that suggests Echinacea constituents activate the acquired immune system, specifically leukocytes responsible for anti-body production, B cells.1
Echinacea appears to increase phagocytosis and activate lymphocytes by promoting the release of immune modulators such as tumor necrosis factor (TNF), interleukin 1 (IL-1) and interferon (INF).2,3 Echinacea also contains compounds with documented inflammation reducing ability. These compounds have been shown to inhibit cyclooxygenase and 5-lipogenase.4
Organic* Licorice (Latin: Glycyrrhiza Glabra)
Compounds in Licorice (Glycyrrhiza glabra) inhibit the conversion of cortisol to its inactive metabolite in the kidney.5 This inhibition results in relatively more cortisol in circulation and can explain, in part, the ability of licorice to have inflammation reducing and provide immune modulation properties. Cortisol is an important immune regulatory hormone in the body. Cortisol prevents the release of chemicals in the body that cause inflammation, enhances the Th1 (cellular) immune response, and supports the burning of fat stores. Indeed, there is evidence that demonstrates that licorice reduces the body fat mass in healthy subjects.6
Wild harvested Cat's Claw (Latin: Uncaria Tomentosa)
Cat's claw is a large, woody vine that derives its name from hook-like thorns that grow along the vine and resemble the claws of a cat.
Cat’s Claw (Uncaria tomentosa) has been used for centuries in South American herbal traditions. It supports the immune system with antioxidants7,8 and other activities.9,10,11,12 In addition, cat’s claw has immune modulating properties, increasing the number and activity of phagocytes13,14 and shifting cytokine profiles to stimulate the Th2 immune response.15 This means that cat’s claw stimulates the innate defense system against infection (macrophages and neutrophils) and also the division of the acquired immune system involved in making antibodies against invading bacteria and viruses.
Organic* Green Tea (Latin: Camellia Sinensis)
Green tea (Camellia sinensis) contains catechins which are natural antioxidants16,17 and inhibit inflammation in the body.18 The consumption of green tea is associated with a healthier cholesterol profile,19 and reductions in serum liver enzyme levels.20 Epigallocatechin, an important catechin in green tea, has been shown to modulate the endocrine system supporting healthy weight.21
Organic* Shiitake mushrooms (Latin: Lentinus Edodus)
Shiitake (Lentinus edodes) is a longevity mushroom with a long tradition of use in Asia for improving stamina, activating the immune system and promoting good health. Lentinan, a beta-glucan found in shiitake has been extensively studied and has demonstrated immunoregulatory properties that include activating macrophages, T-cells22 and B-cells.23 Additionally shiitake extracts have been shown to have antioxidant activity.24
Organic* Lemon Balm (Latin: Melissa Officinalis)
Lemon Balm (Melissa officinalis) is a native herb of Southern Europe that has been naturalized throughout Europe and the Americas.25 It is a member of the mint family and as such is known for its ability to soothe digestion and promote perspiration. For these reasons it has been used traditionally for support during colds and flus. Indeed, it has documented antioxidant properties26 and has been shown valuable in the treatment of upset stomach.27 Lemon balm has also been shown to improve cognitive function and mood.28
Organic* St. John’s Wort (Latin: Hypericum perforatum)
St. John’s Wort (Hypericum perforatum) is best known for its antidepressant effects. Clinical trials have shown it to be effective in the treatment of mild to moderate depression.29 But less known is its traditional use with wounds, burns, injured nerves, and inflammation. Current research confirms many actions that promote the body’s natural defenses, including inflammation reduction and antioxidant action.30 In addition, St. John’s wort has demonstrated immune modulation activity, including the ability to influence cytokine levels,31 affect the activity of immune cells,32,33 and interact with cell adhesion molecules.34 Preliminary research suggests it can counteract the detrimental effects of stress on the immune system as well.35
Organic* Olive Leaf (Latin: Oleae Europaea)
Although Olive leaf (Olea europaea) was used by the ancient Egyptians and Greeks, the first modern report of it use comes in 1811.36 Since then, olive leaf and its constituents have been extensively studied. Olive leaf contains a wide variety of bioactive compounds that support the immune system,37,38 including anti-oxidant39 and inflammation reducing activity.40
Polyphenolic compounds, including oleuropein, found in olive leaves are strong antioxidants.41 These compounds were originally produced by the tree as an innate mechanism of protection from pathogen attack after insect damage to the leaves. Now, humans take advantage of them to gain the same type of protection. In addition to polyphenols, the olive tree produces the monoterpene, calcium elenolate, which is a broad-spectrum agent.
Organic* Astragalus (Latin: Astragalus Membranaceus)
Of the hundreds of herbs used in traditional Chinese medicine only a few have gained popularity in the West. Astragalus (Astragalus membranaceus) is noteworthy in being in that select group. It is valued as an outstanding adaptogen and restorative tonic primarily affecting the lung, spleen and heart meridians. Astragalus has been studied extensively and there is evidence of inflammation reduction,42,43,44 immune cell activating45 and immune modulating46,47 properties. In addition, astragalus, in combination with other herbs including licorice and ginger, enhance recovery from exercise induced fatigue.48
Organic* Ginger (Latin: Zingiber Officinale)
Ginger (Zingiber officinale) is a warming and circulating herb in both Traditional Chinese Medicine and Ayurvedic medicine. Indeed, it is included in the majority of Traditional Chinese and Japanese formulas due to its ability to improve digestive fire, which increases assimilation of the other ingredients in the formula. Research corroborates the digestive calming and warming actions of ginger.49,50 In addition, ginger stimulates the activity of digestive enzymes51 and helps maintain healthy blood sugar and lipid levels.52 Ginger is also used extensively to alleviate pain in a variety of conditions,53,54 purportedly due to its inflammation reducing activity.55 Further, it has immune modulating activity and is an antioxidant.56
Organic* Garlic (Latin: Allium Sativum)
Garlic (Allium sativa) is well known for its ability to support cardiovascular health, cellular health – in particular the cells of the stomach and colon, and healthy cholesterol and lipid levels.57 Garlic also has demonstrated antioxidant58 and immune modulating59 effects.
Organic* Onion (Latin: Allium Cepa)
Onion (Allium cepa), like garlic, is rich in functional sulfadryl groups that allow for binding and neutralizing heavy metals and aid in phase II detoxification in the liver. Though the amount of garlic and onion found in Powerimmune is below levels that have been tested in clinical trials, the inclusion in the formula is based on energetic balancing principles of traditional herbal formulating.

fitura Powerimmune is most effective when taken regularly, as a form of prevention. This way the body can steadily build a healthier immune system, something that cannot be fully accomplished overnight. Preventive usage is generally sufficient for adults at 20 drops (1ml), twice a day in between meals. At this rate one bottle will last 30 days. To kick-start boosting your immune system, take 40 drops (2ml), twice a day in between meals for the first two weeks.
Alternatively you can take fitura Powerimmune when you experience the first symptoms of a weakened immune system . But since these symptoms likely surface several days after your immune system has been weakened, you will need a higher dosage to catch up. Dosage for adults for reactive use should be 5 times daily, 20-30 drops, or 10 drops each hour. Note: if not taken preventively, taking it at the first symptoms is essential for its effectiveness.
We suggest you always contact your general physician or naturopath when considering adding food supplements to your diet, but you should certainly do so if you plan to take fitura Powerimmune when taking prescription drugs, some of the ingredients could influence their effectiveness. One of the ingredients, St. John’s Wort, is known to interact with various prescription drugs, in particular, it can interfere with various heart drugs and reduce their effectiveness. So check with your doctor if you can combine fitura Powerimmune with your prescription drugs and if you need to adjust the dosage of either one.
You should not take fitura Powerimmune if you're pregnant or if you are expecting to become pregnant, as some of the herbs are contraindicated with pregnancy.
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
What does it taste like?
Honestly, fitura Powerimmune is no sweet candy, and if you have seen the ingredients you understand why. Just imagine mixing garlic, onion, ginger and other bitter-tasting herbs, it is a spicy mix. But as Mike Adams “The Health Ranger” says, "you can taste the potency. Taste in this case is a good indicator of the strength—if a herbal extract (also known as tincture) doesn't have much taste, it probably isn't much indeed." fitura Powerimmune is a very dense extract, so when you taste it and can't help making a funny face, be glad you are tasting the potency.
What is the best way to take fitura Powerimmune?
The area under your tongue is exceptionally well suited for accepting nutrients into your blood (which is where most medications can be effective, riding your blood stream throughout your body), this is why many medications are prescribed as “sublingual” or under the tongue. And fitura Powerimmune is no different, but it is a very strong tasting extract so many people will prefer to not take it pure. You could also take it in a glass of water or juice; we think it goes great in tomato juice or grapefruit juice.
Where does the recipe come from?
Mike Adams “The Health Ranger,” nutritionist and prominent author of many books (available from Truth Publishing) and articles (available at NaturalNews.com and other sites), searched through over 400 books written by some of the most respected doctors, physicians, naturopaths and authors in the natural health community on his quest to find the best antiviral herbs, vitamins, minerals and other nutrients. Through this research, he was able to document the astounding antiviral capabilities of all varieties of medicinal herbs, including rainforest herbs, Chinese medicine herbs and Western herbs.
He narrowed the list down to twelve of the most powerful antiviral herbs he could find, the “Big Twelve” as he calls them. They're the most well-documented, the most clinically proven, the most aggressive antiviral herbs known to the natural health community. And they all do so by boosting your immune system.
The “Big Twelve” herbs became the basis for the fitura Powerimmune formula. We then balanced the ingredients to the ideal quantities to have the best synergetic effect.
Why is fitura Powerimmune made in The Netherlands?
There are many locations in the world that provide a positive climate for many of the ingredients of fitura Powerimmune, but what we found is that the environment present near the southern islands of The Netherlands provides a uniquely ideal combination of fertile soils, the right amount of sunshine and moist air from the ocean that creates the best conditions for these herbs to flourish.
All herbs on the farm are grown according to European Organic “EKO” standard and the entire operation is run with maximum consideration for the environment. For example, the farm building is constructed with natural insulation materials, flax seed oil-based paint, sun collectors provide hot water and heating, and rain water is collected for use where tab water is unnecessary. fitura Powerimmune is all good!
What is the shelf life, and how should I store it?
The shelf life of the current batch is indicated towards the top of this page, on the left, under 'Best used before'. Storage of fitura Powerimmune is ideal in a dark, cool and dry place, such as your refrigerator.
Does fitura Powerimmune contain gluten, wheat yeast, or sugar?
None of the above.
