VS-C - The Viral Defender

VS-C - The Viral Defender

As we know viruses are small infectious agents that invade and damage our cells. With Covid-19 dominating newsfeeds across the globe, fortifying the body’s immune system became top of mind for everyone.  Thankfully cleanliness and immune health was embraced by households and businesses and we managed to keep ourselves healthier than ever before.

However viruses do have a habit of getting into our lives, from a seasonal cold or flu, gastro bug, cold sore to shingles, chickenpox and the measles, these pop up every year regardless of how much hand washing and face mask wearing we do.

Herpes simplex is a very common and contagious virus with almost 4 billion people infected with both the HSV-1 and HSV-2 strains globally each year. Anyone, and of any age, can contract these infections and once contracted lives within the body for the rest of their lives.

Another virus that pops up each year is chickenpox. It is estimated 60,000 New Zealanders catch this virus each year and can be more severe and risky for adults. After a person recovers from chickenpox, the virus stays dormant in their body but can reactivate later, causing shingles.

Viral diseases don’t respond to antibiotics, instead treatment usually focuses on managing symptoms, and fortification of the immune system.

Nature’s Sunshine identified the need for a targeted virus fighter and in the mid-1980s worked with Wenwei Xie, a Beijing doctor of Traditional Chinese Medicine to develop VS-C (viral stop).

Nature's Sunshine VS-C is designed to support a healthy immune system. It helps create a favourable environment for microbial balance, natural detoxification and supports the liver and respiratory systems.

Nature’s Sunshine VS-C is best used as a preventative measure for those who suffer from reoccurring viral outbreaks, but can also be taken at high doses at the first sign of symptoms and throughout illness.

Available in capsules and liquid
