Supplement of the Month: Viracid
Fights colds and the flu
Viracid provides support for immune challenges, especially during cold and flu season.
It contains a powerful combination of key nutrients that boost immune defenses including L-lysine, vitamins A and C, pantothenic acid, vitamin B12, and zinc. Viracid also contains a synergistic blend of botanical extracts including black elderberry, astragalus, echinacea, and Andrographis, all of which have been used traditionally for their clinically effective immune-modulating properties.
- For immediate immune support: take 1 – 2 capsules per hour or as recommended by your health care professional
- For immune maintenance: take 2 capsules per day or as recommended by your healthcare professional
Upcoming Dispensary Changes
We have some exciting updates coming to the ICM dispensary in the New Year. Many of the regularly offered supplements in our dispensary will remain the same but we will be rolling out some exciting new products and features this January!
New names and labels
Your supplements might have a new name and look but you can rest assured we are continuing to carry the quality of products you’re used to. If any of your supplements need to be replaced, your doctor will work with you for a seamless transition. Some supplement names will change to better represent the product and uses for the individualized care of our patients.
Same or similar formulas
Many formulas will remain the same. For the supplements that have been replaced with a new formula, this has been done with care and the goal of offering a higher quality product to our patients. Please ask your provider if you have questions about the supplements you are using.
