Kids' Immune Protect™
Boosts Immune Resistance
Planetary Herbals is proud to introduce Kids' Immune Protect liquid. This premium botanical combination helps boost resistance at the start of winter and is especially helpful for back-to-school and day care challenges. Kids' Immune Protect is formulated to support a vitally strong immune defense for children.

Astragalus: Valued Chinese Botanical
The centerpiece of Kids' Immune Protect is astragalus, the primary botanical tonifier used in traditional Chinese herbalism for thousands of years to enhance immune resistance, specifically for children. Modern research validates this traditional use.
Astragalus was shown to support immune resistance in an epidemiological study in China involving 1,000 subjects, who were given the botanical in both oral form and as a nasal spray. Astragalus was also shown to support immune resistance in animal research, which showed positive effects on T-cells and macrophages. Its antioxidant properties were demonstrated in a series of animal and in vitro studies.
Additional Complementary Herbs
In traditional Chinese herbalism, astragalus is most commonly used together with other botanicals. Kids' Immune Protect combines astragalus with the Chinese tonics, atractylodes and siler. This combination is one of the most relied-upon classic formulas in Chinese herbalism to strengthen immune resistance.
