SILA Immune Boost

The immune system is the defense system of the body protecting us from infections and cancer as seen in the "Sila Introduction Video".  The immune system needs a multitude of nutrients to function properly.  The main ingredients of SILA Immune Boost are mushrooms.  Mushrooms provide a large number of immune-supporting substances.  The immune boosting power of mushrooms helps the body defeat viruses and bacteria it is exposed to, even before they cause disease.  Consuming mushrooms regularly decreases the risk of breast cancer by up to 60 to 70 percent.  Interestingly, even the simple white button mushrooms have this beneficial effect.  And the action is heat-stable, meaning that cooking does not alter the health benefits of the mushrooms. Another ingredient of SILA Immune Boost is onion. Onions contain substances that  kill bacteria and viruses. These same substances are responsible for the pungent smell of onions.
