Why My Family Loves Wellness Formula
Wellness is really a way of life. Eating right, exercising, and taking care of yourself are the best ways to stay well.
My family is big on staying active and eating healthy but unfortunately, we do catch the occasional flu or cold. And that’s where Wellness Formula comes in. This supplement is packed with so many incredible, healing herbs that it remains a staple in our cabinet.
I’d have to say this is my favorite herbal remedy and definitely my go to. The instant I start feeling any type of icky feeling, I take a few of these and it’s gone and that’s why we love this formula. It truly is a powerhouse of amazing herbs.

I first discovered this supplement many years ago while feeling under the weather. I went to my local health food store to try and find something to help me feel better. The store clerk recommended Wellness Formula and we’ve been using it ever since.
Now, it’s not a cure-all nor a substitute for visiting your doctor but it is an herbal remedy that we have discovered helps minimize cold and flu symptoms as well as helps us get over it illness faster.
Lately, due to my obsessive time spent blogging ;), I haven’t been getting enough sleep. So, that night I took two of the capsules before bed and then two more in the morning. By that next night I was just about back to normal. I know if I wouldn’t have taken this, I would have ended up getting sick because it’s happened before.
Most of the time, when my family gets that initial feeling of imbalance, we take about four at a time to jump start our immune system. The back of the bottle recommends taking 6 capsules twice a day and that’s a lot!
I have found that if we start with 4 capsules seems to get us back on track and besides, taking that much is hard to swallow especially when you’re already not feeling that great. Not to mention, sometimes you can taste the Wellness Formula when you burp.
I know that’s not pleasant but I wanted you to be aware.
While this typically our go-to supplement when we get that first symptoms of infirmity, it is one that can also be taken daily to maintain wellness.
I do want to mention my boys are older so you’d really need to consult your doctor if you’ve got little ones you’d like to give this to. Further, the label specifically says, do not take if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
The Goodness Inside
The enormous amount of herbs found in this little capsule is astounding. There’s over 20 herbs and roots that provide a power-packed immunity boost.
This formula also contains necessary nutrients such as zinc, selenium, and copper which help to propel you into wellness.
Zinc is a trace element essential for cell growth and has been found to aid in wound healing, increase metabolism, and boost immunity.
Selenium is a powerful antioxidant and is known to defend the body against health diseases such as heart disease and cancer. It’s also been found to aid in memory loss so people with Alzheimer’s can benefit from this nutrient.
Copper is also an essential nutrient for fighting off infection. According to Medical News Today, “It helps maintain healthy bones, blood vessels, nerves, and immune function, and it contributes to iron absorption.”
Aside from the necessary nutrients in this Wellness Formula are the immune-boosting components. The top 5 ingredients are garlic, Propolis extract, Echinacea purpurea (root extract), Elderberry Fruit Extract, and Aromatic Solomon’s Seal Rhizome.
Whew, that’s a mouthful. A mouthful of goodness.
Now, if you’re like me, you’d like to know what these do so here’s a little breakdown of how they help restore the imbalance in your body.
Garlic is considered a natural antibiotic which makes it an outstanding line of defense against those threatening attacks of imbalance. It also contains Allicin, which has anti-bacterial properties. Additionally, garlic stimulates the production of glutothione which is an amino acid that is considered a powerful antioxidant.
Propolis extract is actually a chemical produced by bees. Bees make this resin-like substance and use it for sealing their hives and protecting it from infection. Bees are so amazing and so beneficial to us and the enviroment.
I know many people are against animal products of any kind and I respect that as I don’t like meat. When it comes to bees, I feel like they were a God-given entity to help us live a more natural life.
If you’ve never researched what incredible things bees can do and what they produce, I encourage you to check out this website.
Propolis extract contains natural antibacterial qualities thus helping to fight bacterial infection. It’s been known to fight cancer, help with canker sores as well gastrointestinal issues.
Echinacea purpea is a well-known infection fighting herb. This particular formula uses the root extract to boost the immune system. It can help by lessening symptoms and alleviating pain. It also helps you get over the illness faster.
Other amazing benefits include being an anti-inflammatory, cancer fighter, and it relieves upper respiratory issues.
Elderberry Fruit Extract is packed with Vitamin C and rich in anthocyanin which makes it a powerful antioxidant. It’s been used for centuries to fight colds. It’s even high in fiber and phenolic acid which is another antioxidant.
Not to mention elderberry is full of flavonals which are more filled with more antioxidant. It truly is an antioxidant powerhouse!
On a side note, you may be wondering why antioxidants are so important. The fabulous thing about antioxidants is that they fight free radicals by trapping them and terminating the chain reaction.
Simply put, they can actually go in and change the cell structure which makes them a great defense against infection.
If you want to nerd out a little, here is a very interesting article regarding antioxidants and their behavior.
The last in the top five immune-boosting building blocks is Aromatic Solomon’s Seal Rhizome. If you’ve never heard of this, you’re not alone. This marvelous rhizome is used to treat lung disorders, reduce swelling and bruises as well as help with hemorrhoids and other ailments.
It’s been used as a tincture in China for centuries. One of the main things this medicinal herb does is to dry out and repair damaged tissue. It makes a fantastic tea and can help clear up congestion.
Diabetes Note: Solomon's seal might decrease blood sugar levels and interfere with blood sugar control.
The remaining list of herb and roots is too numerous to review in this post but I hope you get an idea of how beneficial this Wellness Formula can be. I firmly believe in the power of this supplement and I wanted to share it with you to help you keep your family happy and healthy.
