Krill Oil Advanced is derived from shrimp-like crustaceans that provide important omega-3 fatty acids (EPA & DHA). According to the American Heart Association omega-3, fatty acids help to protect against cardiovascular disease. Studies have shown krill oil has the ability to lower blood pressure and triglyceride levels.†

A randomized, double-blind, parallel-group study was done on krill oil effects on brain function. The results indicated a significant change in cognition in elderly adults. Krill oil, with mainly polyunsaturated fatty acids (omega-3), is effective in supporting brain health. It has also been seen to support blood vessel function, healthy circulation and blood pressure, heart health, cholesterol levels, and brain health. The astaxanthin in the Krill Oil Advanced formula at InViteⓇ Health is a powerful antioxidant that helps promote a healthy inflammatory response and heart health.†

Probiotic HxⓇ is formulated to provide “good” bacteria in your intestines, for proper digestion and overall health. The body naturally needs certain strains of healthy bacteria. This is needed to counteract the negative effects of unhealthy bacteria that often lead to digestive concerns; such as bloating and gas, improper immune system function, and skin concerns like acne.†

Probiotic supplements have had a positive impact on several health outcomes. The probiotic at InViteⓇ Health contains 600 million CFU (0.6 billion) of LactoSpore, a healthy bacteria stain colonizing into additional flora. LactoSpore has been proven in human clinical trials to be effective in supporting digestion and a healthy immune system.†

There have been new studies to support the use of probiotics on mental health disorders. Specifically, a clinical trial has studied that the strains to help the most with mental health are lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium bacteria.2 Probiotics have been seen to influence macrophages, signaling the pathways to affect the cytokines and apoptosis. Mental health disorders have been associated with the gut, dysbiosis, and digestion due to inflammation markers.2 The use of probiotics has been studied to help alleviate some mental health symptoms.†


Core Multivitamin is essential to ensure you are getting a sufficient supply of vitamins and minerals to support your overall health. This can help to combat any depleted nutrients that you are unaware of. The Core Multivitamin is beneficial; it has carotenoid pigments such as lutein and lycopene, and tocotrienols which support brain health, eye health, and circulatory systems.†

Vitamin D3 600 IU is generally known as the sunshine vitamin, is the number 1 common deficiency in the world. Vitamin D is naturally obtained by sunlight, in minimal concentration. You can find it in foods such as sardines, fatty fish, mushrooms, and egg yolks. Adequate levels of vitamin D are essential to promote bone health, immune response, metabolism, and overall health.†

Extensive studies have shown the importance of vitamin D for bone health in children and adults. They also show, Vitamin D helped to reduce the risk of chronic diseases such as autoimmune diseases, type 2 diabetes, heart disease, multiple cancers, and infectious diseases.†

Did you know that allergies are one of the most common chronic conditions in the United States? We know that there are certain times throughout the year when you are going to be more prone to all of the different things you may be sensitive to, including pollen, grass, trees, weeds and airborne mold spores. When it comes to fending off these issues, there are certain nutrients that can definitely be very beneficial if you start to use them well before your seasonal allergies begin.† 

The role of antihistamines in seasonal allergies

So many people are affected by seasonal allergies. Many people go running to their local drugstore to find antihistamines, but what if we could get a jumpstart on their allergy symptoms? That’s why I want to talk about what you can be doing if you happen to fall into this category.† 

One of the most common diseases out there is allergic rhinitis. Many people will get a nasal spray or prescription antihistamine from their doctor or an over-the-counter tablet for seasonal allergies, but researchers have now looked at what people should be doing instead of this. About ten years ago, a group of experts got together and looked at people who used these nasal sprays and antihistamines. Despite taking these treatments, people were still coming back year after year and complaining about seasonal allergies. These experts started to think about bolstering the immune system before those symptoms even come out. This is why it is so important to make sure we are always proactive.† 


How to support your immune system

Seasonal allergies occur when the immune system gets revved up. The immune system responds to certain dusts, pollens, ragweed, etc. There are so many different things that can trigger allergic responses.† 

What happens is we have this overproduction of our Th2 cells, which are the immune cells that are responsible for destroying foreign pathogens like allergens. This then generates immunoglobulin E. Because of this, we get too much histamine released into our body, which is what creates problems like itchy eyes and runny nose.† 

If you deal with this every single year, you have to start thinking about what you can be doing. This is when we should be supporting the immune system. We can start by thinking about the dominant driver for our immune defenses, which is our intestines and the microbial environment. Having Probiotic HxⓇ on board every single day throughout the year is always advantageous because it allows you to continuously lay down good, healthy bacteria.†

We can also look at other things that come from nature that we know are very good at the regulation of immunoglobulin E and that histamine release. We look at things such as quercetin and Vitamin C. Both of these are very beneficial when it comes to that targeted immune system response when it is exposed to different allergens. We can look at rosmarinic acid, which is why our Black Seed formulation is a good go-to for seasonal allergies.† 


The other thing is that we want to make sure that our liver has the ability to properly go through the phases of detoxification, so our natural antioxidants are at the ready. It’s always a good idea to incorporate nutrients that support normal metabolic detoxification. We can look at the Greens HxⓇ, which has a probiotic blend as well as fruit and vegetable extracts. We can also look at the Daily Detox powder. These are really wonderful ways to prime the body’s immune system and heighten your antioxidant capacity.† 

In this episode, Amanda Williams, MPH discusses seasonal allergies, which are incredibly common in the United States. She explains why the body responds to allergens and offers recommendations for nutrients that can help protect the body from these reactions.†

Key Topics:

  • Common triggers of seasonal allergies
  • Why allergies occur
  • The important components of our Black Seed formulation
  • Why antioxidants are so important for fighting allergens
