NIH-NCCAM Funded Research
Through 5 years of federally funded research, Gaia Herbs has identified key chemical differences in Echinacea that have a huge impact on efficacy. Whole Body Defense® is based on the discovery of how polysaccharide and glycoprotein factors found in the fresh flowering tops of Echinacea purpurea provide particularly beneficial action for boosting the body's immune system.
Strengthening the Immune Response
Gaia Herbs developed a proprietary, patent-pending method for extracting and concentrating the highly active polysaccharide and glycoprotein factors from Echinacea - what we call Rx-P Factors. We grow the Echinacea used for the Whole Body Defense® formula at our North Carolina farm under certified organic conditions and are the only U.S. manufacturer extracting Echinacea for these important factors.
Whole Body Defense - Over 5 Times More Polysaccharides than other leading brands!

A Blend of Modern Science and Traditional Herbal Solutions
Whole Body Defense® is a proprietary, synergistic formula that features the most respected and beneficial herbal choices for seasonal immune support. This simple and effective formula contains four key components:
- Echinacea Rx-P Factors - These are the highly concentrated polysaccharide and glycoprotein factors found in the juice of spring-harvested fresh flowering tops of Echinacea purpurea, which research has shown best stimulate and support the immune system.*
- Astragalus - With deep roots in Traditional Chinese medicine, Astragalus was historically used as an immune enhancing tonic to support health during the winter season.*
- Larch gum - Modern research suggests that compounds called Arabinogalactans found in Larch may have dramatic, immune-supporting activity.*
- Maitake PD Fraction - Maitake mushrooms have a specific compound known as Grifolan, a polysaccharide, and is well known to excite deep immune protective influences.*
This blend of scientifically-researched Echinacea with powerful immune-supporting traditional herbs helps your body be better suited to tolerate the harsh environment of the winter season.
Whole Body Defense® is an immune-boosting formula with a convenient dosing of just 1 capsule, twice daily to set you on the path to everyday wellness!
Each 2 capsules contain 7,420 mg crude herb equivalent.
