    hi all,

    i'm doing some early christmas shopping and want to buy my brother some sort of immune support supplement. looking for opinions on the best all-purpose immune booster with a low side effect profile.

    maitake mushrooms?
    astragalus?
    wobenzyme?

    he frequently gets conjunctivitis (pink eye) so something that would specifically address that would be great. i've taken transfer factor for my own immune problems, but feel that's way more strong than he needs. i'd like to ease him in with something lighter.

    thanks for any suggestions,
    eddie

    There are so many and it may depend on how he responds. Other suggestions could be Colostrum and/ or Whey Protein.

    I'm not sure that I would put Wobenzyme at the top of my list as an immune booster.

    Kathy.

    I take echinacea tincture, it's stronger than the tablets.
