Resilient Immune Formula
Dr. Stern: I like to look at big picture and small picture. So number one, you want to make sure that you have the proper number of white blood cells. So, the ingredients that I've put in are there to support white blood cell growth. It makes sure that the white blood cells are healthy and viable.
Number two, you want to make sure that the white blood cells are active and that they're targeting the bad bacteria and viruses that are in your system.
Again, the nutrients that I have in there support white blood cell activity, to make sure that they're targeting what needs to be targeted, and it prevents these organisms... Read More
How to Stop Getting Sick From Overtraining?
Dr. Stern: Because when we exercise, we release cortisol. Cortisol has a negative impact on our immune system. It decreases our white blood cell production, it decreases the ability for our white blood cells to recognize viruses and bacteria, and by our immune system becoming less potent or less active, the bad bugs, the bad viruses and the bad bacteria can then proliferate and cause us to get sick.
So I attack it two ways.
Number one, you have to make sure you have proper nutrition. You have to make sure you have proper rest and... Read More
Benefits Of Herbal Extracts
Interviewer: Why do you use herbal extracts in your formulas?
Dr. Stern: So, in all of my formulas whenenver I can use an extract, I use an extract, and this is the reason why:
There's a study done that shows that turmeric (even in the highest quality powder) might only have one to three percent curcuminoid
So, what makes turmeric so amazing at reducing inflammation? Curcuminoids. That's the main ingredient, right? So, if curcuminoids are the main ingredients at reducing inflammation, and you buy this big jar of powder that only has one percent curcuminoids, then really you're not getting much of the active ingredient that reduces the inflammation.
All herbs function that way. Everything has an active constituent that really makes that herb super powerful.
So, my joint... Read More
Benefits Of Astragalus Root Extract
Interviewer: What are the benefits of Astragalus Root extract?
Dr. Stern: Astragalus, like all of my nutrients in my Resilient formula, is a natural herb. I used the extract form to make sure I'm getting the most potent version.
Every herb has constituents that make it more potent. For example, turmeric has curcuminoids. You could do a turmeric powder that has a small amount of curcumin, and you're not gonna really see a great anti-inflammatory benefit.
That's why you could go buy a big jar of turmeric for $6, and these capsules you buy cost $50. It's because if you take all that turmeric and extract it to get all those curcuminoids, now you're gonna have a much more supercharged benefit for what you're taking in the first place.

Benefits Of L-Leucine
Interviewer: What are the benefits of L Leucine?
Dr. Stern: I have a new formula, Resilient, which has five amazing, organic mushrooms, and it has four super-powered immune building herbs; astragalus, echinacea, olive leaf extract and oregano leaf extract.
Leucine is my last ingredient, it's my tenth ingredient, but it is there for a particular reason, it's a great story.
When I started making supplements, one of the reasons why I make supplements is because there's not a formula out there, or a company out there that I truly believe in.
That's not saying there aren’t some good things out there that people are doing, there are. But I need to know, that whatever I put in my body, that it's as healthy as can be.
Even though a supplement might... Read More
