Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) – 500mg

    One of the very first supplements most people turn to when they start feeling a little under the weather is vitamin C. And for a good reason!

    Vitamin C is an essential micronutrient that takes on several roles within the body. It’s most known for being a potent antioxidant, which helps prevent free radicals from damaging your healthy cells, and for its immune-boosting benefits! Research shows that vitamin C increases the activity of several cells involved in the adaptive and innate immune systems.

    Vitamin C’s Immune Boosting Benefits
    Here are some of the ways vitamin C can supercharge your immune system to fight against foreign bacteria or viruses:

    • Increased phagocytic cell activity: enhanced microbial removal.
    • Needed for apoptosis: programmed cell death induced by natural killer cells to get rid of cells infected by a bacteria or virus.
    • Decreased necrosis/tissue damage.
    • Enhanced proliferation and differentiation of T-Cells and B-Cells: essential components of the adaptive immune system, which help you build up immunity.
    • Supports the epithelial barrier: decreases the chance of a pathogen entering into the cell.
    • Serves as a powerful antioxidant: protects against environmental oxidative stress.
    • Acts as a cofactor for monooxygenase and dioxygenase enzymes: contribute to the synthesis of collagen, carnitine, catecholamine hormones.

    Vitamin C Deficiencies
    Furthermore, it’s well documented that vitamin C deficiency leads to decreased immunity and increased risk of infection. This is ultimately a double-edged sword because infections can negatively impact vitamin C levels due to enhanced inflammation. Therefore, it may be a good idea to get in extra vitamin C when you’re sick since your body is running through it rapidly. Supplementing with an adequate amount of vitamin C has been shown to help prevent and treat common illnesses such as respiratory or systemic conditions.

    Zinc (from zinc Bisglycintate) TRAACS® – 30mg

      The next component of SuperHuman Armor is a hefty dose of zinc, as zinc bisglycinate, from Albion Human Nutrition.

      After looking at the label, you’re probably wondering what TRAACS® stands for and why it’s important, well let us explain. TRAACS is a pneumonic for “The Real Amino Acid Chelate System” and it’s a patented method for testing Albion’s trademarked ingredients. It essentially helps ensure the quality, potency, purity, bioavailability, and safety of the mineral included in a product, in this case, it’s zinc.

      It turns out that minerals are not very well absorbed by the small intestine. So what TRAACS does is bind it to something that is well-absorbed — amino acids! In this case, it’s glycine. The small intestine has a far easier time absorbing glycine, and happily does so with zinc bisglycinate rather than cheaper forms of zinc like zinc oxide or even zinc gluconate.

      This effectively “trojan horses” the zinc into your system to get it to where we want it. True Alpha Lion style. TRAACS does this with several minerals, but when it comes to the immune system, zinc is top of the list.

      Now that you know this is a highly bioavailable form of zinc, let’s see what it can do to help strengthen your immune system!

      The Benefits of Zinc
      Zinc is a mineral that’s naturally occurring in several foods, such as oysters, red meat, and poultry. However, if you prefer to eat more of a plant-based diet, then getting enough zinc on a daily basis may be an issue. Furthermore, foods that contain high amounts of phytic acid, an organic phosphate compound, can also negatively affect the absorption of zinc. So even if you think you’re getting enough from diet alone, depending on what else you’re eating, it may not be enough.

      Research shows that zinc deficiency can lead to several negative health effects, including decreased lean body mass and immune function, delayed wound healing, and reduced testosterone levels. It is clear that even a moderate zinc deficiency can cause adverse effects on several systems within the body, however, your immune system likely suffers the most.

      Getting adequate zinc through supplementation is highly recommended if you cannot fulfil your daily requirements from whole food. In regards to the immune system, zinc plays an essential role in ensuring that cells, such as natural killer (NK) cells, neutrophils, and macrophages, are functioning properly. All three cells we just listed are key components of the innate immune system, their job is to identify cells that have been infected by pathogens and get rid of them through apoptosis (cell death) or phagocytosis (engulfing). This helps prevent the infected cells from travelling throughout the body and harming other cells or organelles.

      Furthermore, research shows zinc deficiency also negatively affects the proliferation and function of T-cells and B-cells. Both of these are involved in the adaptive immune system, and they help build immunity by creating antibodies. Lastly, zinc also acts as an antioxidant, meaning it can offer support for cell membranes, which protects them from the damage that can be caused by free radicals.

      Alpha Lion is all about giving you the best ingredients on the market, and this is a prime example of that. They could have saved money by using any other form of zinc, but that’s just not what they do.

      And again with SuperHuman Armor, you’re getting a great dose for maximum benefits! The combination of vitamin C and zinc are quite the immune boosters, but this next ingredient is really the star of the show!

      EpiCor® Dried Fermentate (from Saccharomyces cerevisiae) – 500mg

        EpiCor® is a whole food dried fermentate derived from saccharomyces cerevisiae, also commonly known as Baker’s or Brewer’s yeast, since it’s commonly used for baking, winemaking, and brewing.

        Many know about yeast’s role in baking and fermentation, but many don’t know that it can pack a powerful immune-boosting punch. Embria Health Sciences, the masterminds behind EpiCor, quickly realized that with all of the vitamins, polyphenols, beta-glucans, amino acids, and fibres contained within Saccharomyces cerevisiae, it can significantly strengthen your immune system in various ways.

        EpiCor® Human Clinical Trials
        So far there have been at least seven human clinical that have shown 500mg of EpiCor taken daily has the ability to:

        • Alleviate allergy symptoms.
        • Increase secretory immunoglobulin A (SIgA) levels.
        • Reduce serum Immunoglobulin E level.
        • Decrease duration and frequency of upper respiratory tract infections (URTI).
        • Rapidly enhance natural killer cell activity and antioxidant protection.
        • Improve symptoms of gastrointestinal discomfort.
        • Act as a prebiotic to increase the amount of good bacteria in the gut.
        • Reduce inflammation due to histamine release.

        EpiCor® is starting to become extremely popular because several studies have revealed its wide variety of benefits. Embria Health Sciences even calls it “the multi-vitamin for your immune system”, which seems very fitting given all of the components it positively impacts. We argue that EpiCor® could even be a stand-alone product as part of Alpha Lion’s Gains Candy Series. That’s how powerful it is.

        Furthermore, what’s great about Embria Health Sciences is that they take quality, safety, and purity of ingredients just as serious as Alpha Lion. By seeing EpiCor® on the label, you know it’s gluten-free, GMO-free, BSA/TSA free, and OU Kosher, because they make it in their own cGMP-certified facility in the U.S.

        500mg is exactly the dose you’re looking for, and it’s recommended to be taken with meals, once per day! So far SuperHuman Armor is looking unstoppable, but just wait– there’s more!

        Elderberry Fruit Extract 4:1 (sambucus nigra) – 300mg

        Sambucus Nigra, also known as European Elder or Elderberry, is a medicinal herb that’s traditionally been used to treat a wide variety of medical conditions and symptoms, such as inflammation, pain, swelling, infection, and diuresis.[19] What’s really interesting about elderberry is that it consists of various components that do drastically different things.


        For example, the berries are rich in flavonoids, polyphenols, vitamins, and antioxidants, which have been shown to be beneficial in treating bronchitis, sinusitis, and the flu (influenza). Whereas the bark, leaves, flowers, and stem contain sambunigrin, a glycoside that’s potentially harmful if consumed.[19] But you can see right from the label, Alpha Lion is only using fruit extract, therefore expect to see some great health benefits!

        Studies show elderberries can reduce the duration of cold and flu symptoms, increase the production of antibodies after pathogen exposure, and enhance immune system activity via boosting cytokine secretion. Furthermore, research concludes that elderberry has antiviral, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and immunostimulatory effects.

        Elderberry is a very underrated ingredient, but it needs to be extracted properly. We’re excited Alpha Lion chose to utilize it in SuperHuman Armor, and at a 4:1 standardization nonetheless!

        Echinacea purpurea extract (Root) – 200mg

        Echinacea, also called purple coneflower, is another herb that’s commonly used to combat flu and cold symptoms due to its potent anti-inflammatory, antiviral, antioxidant, and immunostimulatory properties. There are several species of echinacea, but the one included in the majority of dietary supplements is purpurea extract. Several studies have shown that supplementing with echinacea has the ability to decrease the duration and incidence of the common cold, in addition to preventing it altogether.

        For example, one study conducted in 2016 found that a standardized echinacea purpurea extract was able to reduce the number of cold episodes, number of days being sick, and decrease the need for other medications.

        The main bioactive compounds responsible for achieving these positive effects are polysaccharides and alkamides. However, each has their own unique benefits they provide. Alkamides seem to be more linked to echinacea’s immunomodulatory effects, whereas polysaccharides tend to be tied to its anti-inflammatory properties.

        Just like several of the other ingredients we discussed so far, studies have shown echinacea’s mechanism of action is strengthening the immune system via the activation of macrophages, leukocytes, NK cells, and neutrophils. These specialized cells are crucial for identifying and getting rid of pathogens and infected cells. Furthermore, the alkamides present in echinacea seem to stimulate cannabinoid type 2 receptors and increase cAMP, which are other proposed mechanisms for echinacae’s immune boosting effects.

        Overall, echinacea is another effective ingredient to strengthen several components of your immune system.

        Astaxanthin (from Haematococcus pluvialis algae) – 12mg

        Astaxanthin is a naturally occurring keto carotenoid found in several foods including lobster, algae, crab, and salmon, and it’s the reason why they have a pink or reddish colour. There are several other carotenoids that exist, and in general, they all serve as colour pigments. Astaxanthin can be biosynthesized by microalgae and phytoplankton, but it can also be synthesized by plants.

        The most potent and highest quality form of astaxanthin is found in haematococcus pluvialis algae, and as you can see on the label, that’s exactly what SuperHuman Armor uses! It’s important to note that in order to cut costs, nearly 95% of astaxanthin available on the market is produced synthetically using petrochemicals, but there can be several safety risks associated with that form, so keep that in mind when looking for an astaxanthin supplement.

        Astaxanthin’s Benefits

        Beyond giving plants and animals their vibrant colour, astaxanthin seems to have several health benefits, which are attributed to its numerous pharmacological effects, such as anti-inflammatory, anticancer, antioxidant, and anti-diabetic properties. In addition, astaxanthin also offers protection for your skin and eyes, as well as your neurological and cardiovascular systems.

        Several of astaxanthin’s benefits are attributed to its unique molecular structure. It seems to have higher antioxidant activity than other carotenoids and thus is better able to preserve the integrity of cells’ membranes, which makes them more resistant to outside stressors.

        Astaxanthin seems to be most powerful in protecting your skin, which is crucial since your skin is one of the largest organs in the body and serves as a barrier between the outside and inside world. If a pathogen can’t make it into the body in the very first place, then that’s the best case scenario. Finally, astaxanthin has been shown to prevent immunosuppression, and boost immune system activity by upregulating NK cell, T-lymphocytes, and antibody production.

        You’re getting a host of health benefits with this ingredient that go well beyond preventing you from getting a cold.

        SPECTRA™ Total ORAC Blend – 100mg

        To round out this immune-boosting powerhouse, we have 100mg of Spectra™ Total ORAC!

        This ingredient is becoming quite popular in the sports supplement industry because of its potent antioxidant properties. Spectra was developed by Futureceuticals, a leading ingredient supplier. It’s a plant-based formula of various fruits, herbs, and vegetables that all come together to produce some profound health benefits. Spectra has been shown to boost cellular metabolic activity, while also defending against free radical synthesis and damage.

        A study done in 2014 was conducted to determine the effects of Spectra on oxidative stress markers in 22 human participants. They were split up into two groups, one received 100mg of Spectra while the other was just given a placebo. At the end of the study, the researchers found that oral ingestion of Spectra significantly inhibited cellular and mitochondrial reactive oxygen species (ROS) production. ROS are a specific type of molecule that contains oxygen but is very unstable, therefore it’s highly reactive. ROS can wreak havoc on healthy cells by binding to them and destroying their membranes, DNA, and enzymes. Spectra has also been shown to increase nitric oxide concentration and reduce inflammation.

        In summary, Spectra is a natural supplement that’s scientifically validated to provide several health benefits. As we mentioned, antioxidants strengthen the integrity of cell membranes to help them combat oxidative stress and foreign pathogens.

        As a dietary supplement, take 3 capsules (1 serving) per day. For increased Immune Support you may take 3 capsules (1 serving) twice per day.
