Meet the Heroic Herbs Inside Rapid Rescue
It’s that dreaded time of year. It seems every coworker is out of office and every friend is taking a raincheck on your plans, feeling unwell. Cue the red alert sirens and fog horns! You frantically search online for a supplement to prep your immune system, but there are so many mixed reviews, that you’re not sure which ones really work.
It’s a bird...it’s a plane...it’s Rapid Rescue!
Made with nine of nature’s most powerful botanicals and herbs that lead the way for supporting immune health, Rapid Rescue® is designed to deeply nourish your healthy immune defenses and promote a speedy recovery. And not only does each extract hail from organic herbs, but they’re standardized to a premium potency so you can quantify the most important part of each ingredient – their active compounds.
Let’s look at these herbal heavyweights and break down how each one can uniquely benefit your immune system.
Echinacea Juice Extract
The most researched and well-known species of echinacea are Echinacea purpurea and Echinacea angustifolia. Each part of the plant — roots, flowers, and aerial parts (above-ground portions) — contain different active compounds, so echinacea’s immune benefits depend on which species, plant parts, or preparation is used.
Rapid Rescue® contains the organic fresh-pressed juice of Echinacea purpurea aerial parts, which is the preparation commonly utilized in European clinical studies. This form is rich in water-soluble polysaccharides, arabinogalactan proteins, and cichoric acid, which research has shown to promote immune health and keep the innate defense system prepared.
Elderberry Fruit Extract
Research shows that black elderberry, or Sambucus nigra, has many immune-supporting benefits. The dark purple pigment of this berry contains a very high percentage of anthocyanins. These flavonoids account for one of its key mechanisms of action: antioxidant support and free radical cleanup. Black elderberry also helps maintain healthy immune cell communication as part of a healthy defense system.
After peak harvesting, our fresh elderberries are filtered and concentrated into a rich syrup then carefully low temperature dried into a powder to maintain all the active goodness inside. The result is a high potency elderberry extract of the finest caliber containing standardized amounts of valuable immune-supporting polyphenols and anthocyanins.
Andrographis Leaf Extract
A highly revered herb in the traditions of both Ayurvedic and Traditional Chinese Medicine, the immune-supporting properties of andrographis are owed to a compound called andrographolide. This active compound helps support our antioxidant systems and healthy white blood cell function. Andrographis has a particular affinity for supporting the health of our ears, eyes, nose, and throat.
Our andrographis is grown organically and transformed into a potent, certified organic extract using our exclusive SuperPure® processing, which results in an astounding 40% potency of the well-researched andrographolide compounds.
Olive Leaf Extract
While most people are familiar with the olive fruit and oil, scientists have discovered that the antioxidant and immune-supportive compound called oleuropein is particularly rich in the olive leaf. Oleuropein is olive's powerful built-in defense compound, the very same one that can help our bodies defend against oxidative stress and unwelcome invaders.
Our certified organic olive leaf extracts are marked by an oleuropein content of 18%, which provides you with a whopping 50 mg of organic oleuropein in each serving of Rapid Rescue.
Oregano Leaf Extract
A plethora of research shows oregano’s benefits for the immune system. Its bioactive properties appear to be linked to oregano’s phenolic compound, carvacrol, shown to support the body’s natural defenses.
Our fresh oregano leaves are transformed into a potent, certified organic extract using our unique CO2 SuperPure® processing. This ecologically innovative form of extraction ensures that the beneficial and highly sensitive oil elements of the herb are preserved, resulting in a standardized carvacrol content.
Scientists have studied the composition of propolis and uncovered a remarkable assortment of phytonutrients and immune-supporting polyphenols like apigenin, quercetin and chyrsin. These active compounds give propolis its ability to support a healthy immune defense through its powerful antioxidant function, and to also support optimal white blood cell communication.
Our certified organic propolis extract is unmatched. The propolis raw compound is first carefully separated from the organic beeswax. Next, using our SuperPure processing, we create an organic propolis extract that’s then fully tested for the immune-supporting polyphenols like apigenin, quercetin and chyrsin to ensure optimal potency.
Considered liquid gold, manuka honey is a very precious and coveted substance. For only six weeks of every year, New Zealand honeybees pollinate the flower of the manuka bush, carry the nectar back to their hives, and create a sweetly delicious and powerfully health-supporting food. Manuka honey possesses a unique active ingredient, methylglyoxal (MGO), that supports immune balance in our body for active wellness.
We go to great lengths to produce our 100% certified organic and freeze-dried Manuka honey powder — the only source in the world! After our liquid gold is removed from the hives, it is freeze-dried into a powder for optimal preservation.
The primary bioactive compounds in ginger are gingerols and shogaols. Although it’s best known for its positive support of healthy digestion, that’s only part of the story. Ginger also promotes the enzyme that helps produce and recycle our body’s master antioxidant, glutathione, our body's most indispensable weapon for protecting our cells from oxidative stress. Plus, it's been widely researched to support a healthy immune defense.
Our fresh ginger root is grown organically, and upon harvest, transformed into a potent, certified organic extract. To get the most out of this beneficial botanical, use our exclusive dual H2O & CO2 SuperPure® processing that yields an abundance of well-researched and standardized shogaol and gingerol compounds.
Pelargonium Root Extract
This exceptional root is particularly supportive of healthy bronchial, nasal, and sinus function. Research from clinical trials also shows that it supports the healthy function and communication of our white blood cells.
We carefully prepare our P. sidoides extract from the root, grown organically in its native habitat of South Africa. Our SuperPure® processing results in a highly concentrated extract such that two capsules of Rapid Rescue® are guaranteed to contain an unparalleled 70 mcg of immune-supporting umckalin, one of pelargonium’s key biomarkers of potency.
