New Shield, Immune Booster, Dr. Sears M.D.


Nobel Laureates Use Shocking Telomere Technology to…
Grow Up to 7x Stronger Immune Super Cells
  • Adds up to 20 years of youthful power to your immune system, giving you long-term protection[1]
  • Reprograms “old” white blood cells to fend off microbes, germs, and other foreign invaders[2]
  • Awakens sleeping Immune Stem Cells, restoring your body’s lost ability to DEFEND itself[3]
A Dream Team of Nobel Laureates have found the key to unlocking a new level of immunity — so you can achieve permanent protection.

Now, finally, you can unleash your body’s total immune power and…


Hello and welcome. Dr. Al Sears here today. Today, I want to tell you about one of the things that is always important in our anti-aging and health building practice, but is particularly important today with all the scare that’s going around about infectious disease.

And every time there’s a new infectious threat, it’s as if there’s nothing we can do except run and hide or wait for a vaccine.

I’m here to tell you that there is not only something that you can do, but there’s something that you should do, and I’m going to tell you exactly how to do it.
It’s not some billion dollar solution concocted by big pharma that you have to wait and subject yourself to side effects and to their agenda. Instead…
It’s something that I found that is a key to unlocking a new level of immunity so that you can achieve long-term protection, and it’s already inside you. 
That’s right. It’s in your own cells now.

I’m going to show you how you can unleash your body’s total immune power and become safe again without toxic side effects and without synthetic chemicals. 

This is all possible due to a select group of powerful immune super cells.

I once believed that they age and wither away, but it turns out I was wrong.
There is definitely hope for recovery, and we have proven that even very elder people can get back the immune system of their youth, and that is key.
In fact, these super immune cells, they don’t die. They just lie dormant, kind of in a state of sleep that I call immune senescence.

And now there are teams of Nobel laureates at some of the best universities in the world, like Harvard, Johns Hopkins, Stanford, Oxford, that are coming around to this point of view.

The research is undeniable…
There’s a hidden activator inside these immune cells, one that can be turned back on, restoring your body’s natural ability to totally defend itself against foreign invaders of any kind at any age.
And that’s exactly what my research has been showing for years.
When we put these natural therapies together, these immune cells suddenly sprang back to life as if they were years younger.[4] They regained their fighting spirit. 
They grew new cells that were up to seven times stronger and they achieved this without drugs, without doctor’s visits and without dangerous side effects.
Up to 7X Stronger Immune Super Cells!
This completely rewrites the rules on aging.
Now the cream of the medical crop has to admit, you can reprogram your immune super-cells.
You can support your body’s natural ability to defend itself…
And you can do this entirely naturally.

I call this…

“Shield Immunity”

Think about that.
They’ve always said that you need something else, something to fight bacteria microbes and germs for you. No other options exist.
Your only choice is to run and hide and wait for their solution — but it turns out we had the healing power all along.
There’s no need to fear.
You can use and activate your God-given immune power to work as it was designed to do. And you can achieve victory over threats to your health.
Now that you have the key to doing exactly that, you don’t have to pay big pharma. You don’t have to wait to get permission from the FDA.
The solution is already here. It is changing lives, and it can do the same for you today.
How can I be so certain? Because…
My patients and I were on the front lines of this super immune breakthrough, from the very beginning. We’ve taken our health back into our own hands and we’ve built our own “Shield Immunity.”
 And the results have been breathtaking.
I’ve seen over 23,000 patients of all ages,… 50 and older and all the way up to 100 years old… from all walks of life and various backgrounds.
And I can tell you that across the board, they’re enjoying year-round super health.
We have been able to build robust lungs, which I very much emphasize in my patients.
And that has turned out to be a very important part of immune surveillance.
The stronger your lungs are, the more youthful you are in many other respects, including the strength of your immune system.
We think of the lungs and the heart together to build a bigger cardiopulmonary capacity and we measure that.
When we improve those, there are other surprising things that come along such as better mood and sharper memory.
We have 133% more strength in that patient group.[5]

There’s a Certain Youthful Kind of Invincibility About Their Immune System

They have more energy and that clear deep breath that comes from building pulmonary capacity is also affecting their mood. They are in better spirits.
You can’t help but recognize that in the patient population that comes back for their followups.
And importantly, they’re not concerned about their health or the health of their loved ones.
And our clinical trial shows why they need not be concerned because they’ve all achieved a measurable higher level of immunity.
This shows how on average, my patients achieved younger immune age, on average of 13 years younger, to be exact.
And for some patients it was much more than that.
Years of Immune Aging Reversed 
Sears Institute for Anti-Aging Medicine Core Study Group > 200 Telomere Test Patients
The average “biological age” of the study group was 59 years old. Your biological age is a measure of how strong or weak your immune system really is… regardless of your actual age. By the end of the study, the average biological age of the participants was 46. That means their immune strength became 13 years younger.
They’ve built lasting immunity.
Now, for the first time since their 20s and 30s, they’re enjoying year-round good health strength, and a kind of unstoppable endurance that they report they haven’t felt since they were very young.
One of my patients, who’s 61, reversed his brain age back to that of a 44 year old.
He rewound his lung age back to a 24 year old.
He’s improved his eyesight, lowered his diglycerides, boosted his testosterone…
He even lost 20 pounds in the process.
There’s another young woman of 86 years that’s even more remarkable.
Originally she had the heart of a 100 year old…
But two years later on this program, she reversed her heart age by 23 years.
Her brain is nearly a decade younger and her lungs are an astonishing 27 years younger. 
Results After Two Years

I’m in my 60s, yet I have the immune system of a 20 year old…

The lungs of someone half my age…
And the heart of a 27 year old. 
And the reason I’m telling you this is that age reversing medical program has been shown to increase the strength of the immune system.

 If There’s One System We Need to Keep Young, It’s Our Immune System

And no one else is talking about this or doing this.

I’m not talking about the kind of immunity that you get from a vaccine, or even the kind that you’ll get from contracting an infectious agent and building antibodies.
This is a different kind of immunity that I’ll get to in a minute. It’s been decades in the making.
It’s an immune cell technology that’s making this all possible. And you don’t need to visit my institute to get your hands on it, you don’t even have to leave your home.
I’ve locked thousands of hours of research and studies working alongside some of the leading minds in regenerative medicine and anti-aging, and together we’ve discovered, tested, refined, improved new cellular mechanisms that can change your life, especially when it comes to the strength of your immune system.
I’ve conducted studies on some of the most powerful ingredients and my own protocols.
After all this trial testing and calibrating… ruling out all the false positives and honing in on the cream of the crop, one technology has stood out head and shoulders above the rest.

Finally I Can Say With Certainty, the Answer We’ve Been Searching for Is Here…

 …and I’m not talking about the antibody system — this is much bigger.

This discussion around the antibodies that you see in the news every day is reaching a new level of hype that really misinforms people, as if that were their only option.
If you don’t know, antibodies are the proteins generated by your immune system if you’re infected — they stop the infection from returning.
You can easily get an antibody test. Many researchers call an antibody test the Holy Grail of the immunity, but I think they’re dead wrong and my results prove otherwise.
They’re missing the big picture.
You see, antibodies are only one small part of your immune system and far from the most important part. They belong to the circulatory half of your immune system, along with what we call the B cells and the macrophages.
Those are the cells that run around and gobble up infective viruses or bacteria.
But these things about your immune system, they don’t run it. They are not the control master switch, they are a secondary system that comes into play when your primary system fails.
So what is the primary system?
Well, in fact, that is the master commander of all your immune operations. It’s the brains of the entire project.
This is your built-in immunity for everything.
And the key to building lasting immunity at any age is not about antibodies. They fade.
It’s about the cellular immunity.

I’m Talking About T cells

This is the innate part of your immune system, the “Immune Shield,” and it’s your frontline defense.

It’s so much more powerful than waiting for you to get infected to produce the antibodies.
This is the immune defense that you are born with.
T cells swarm to an infection, a bacteria, virus, or any pathogen. And then once the battle is won — because they are powerful killers — they kill anything that they see as foreign.
Once they’ve done that, they transform into a kind of wise veteran for your immune system.
They keep a record. They record all past infections and keep your immune system fine tuned and smart in that regard.
They recognize those infected cells on site, and then they’re the ones that coordinate the antibodies and other parts of the immune system to rapidly respond to and destroy any infection that might have the bad luck of returning to your body.
They’re the highest rank in your body’s army.
Finally, the world’s top universities agree …
“They’re longer lasting than antibodies.” 
– Oxford University[6]
“Your body’s antiviral snipers” 
– UCSF[7]
“T cells offer lasting protection.” 
– Nature[8]
“They’re more important than antibodies.”
– La Jolla Institute for Immunology[9,10]
Finally, we’re getting some recognition here.
Yet outside of these narrow scientific establishments, most doctors and most people in the media and in big pharma have no interest in this.
And for the most part, they are ignorant, but there is a problem with T cells that we have come to address in my anti-aging center, and that is that the power of your T cells diminish with age.
Production of new cells decline rather dramatically, and in many cases by as much as 90%. The remaining cells in very aged individuals lose their capacity to do the work.
Your “Immune Shield” Diminishes As You Age
Data From Immunology
And this is, again, called immune senescence.[11]
The important thing is to realize that they didn’t die — they were down-regulated and they become dormant. They went into kind of a sleeping state — and as a result — your whole immune system kind of goes off the rails.
They need to be rejuvenated… they need to be invigorated.
Every part of your body needs exercise, and your immune system is no different.
If you don’t have some kind of challenge or stimulation, it becomes less and less aggressive, but also more and more likely to have errors.
It stopped being coordinated. The army loses its generals and our defenses fail as various free radicals and alien invaders of our modern world produce false challenges to the immune system, and over time it tends to weaken it.
Loss of T Cell Production Increases Disease Incidence
Data From Epidemiology
This is why a treatment that restores your natural young T cells is what I call the holy grail of immunity. 
It’s why the media has no interest in this, because it takes kind of a partnership with your body that is the farthest thing in the world that big pharma wants.
Big pharma wants to be able to develop something that they can patent and test against a single intervention in a controlled way and prove that the benefit to you — like killing the virus — is purely the result of their new space age alien molecule…
And then run a campaign to convince people that somehow you need this new chemical to be safe or to be healthy, but it’s not the real source of your immune power.
And believe me, big pharma has 50 billion reasons why[12] — and 50 billion is a low number for what they will predict they will get from the next big vaccine — the numbers are staggering.

I’ve spent years quietly innovating a way you can reboot your T cells back to their real potential…

…the potential they were designed to have.

Now it’s finally here… It’s light years ahead of everything else big pharma has ever made, and you can do what they’ve been calling impossible.
You can rebuild your immune system at the cellular level allowing you to stay healthy year round — potentially to age a hundred and beyond without side effects and without chemical solutions. 
It’s 100% natural technology. 
I’ll reveal what that is in a moment, but first you should know a little bit about how this works.
It all started with a Nobel prize winning DNA discovery.
If you’ve been following my work or reading the daily newsletter Doctor’s House Call, you know that for the past 10 years I’ve been raving about this discovery.
Unfortunately, convention still hasn’t picked it up, and only my patients and my readers seem to be listening.
I even brought it to the American Academy of Anti Aging Medicine. They seemed excited for a while, but then it died off…
But the importance of this discovery can’t be overemphasized.
We now know the very mechanism by which your body controls aging.
It’s called the telomeres — also called the immortality enzyme or the molecular fountain of youth. And it is the biological clock.
Telomeres are these end caps on every stand of DNA and they act like a shoelace cap that keeps your DNA from unwinding.
We used to think that that’s all they do, but now we know that telomere length shows your age, just like a built in timestamp.
The shorter your telomeres — the older you are… the longer your telomeres — the younger you are… the faster your telomeres shorten — the faster you age… and the slower they shorten — the slower you age.
But here’s the thing…
Stressors, toxins and pollutants from our modern foreign environment combine to stress your telomeres and advance the shortening, thereby accelerating your aging.
There’s nowhere that this is more important and more noticeable than the effect of shortening of telomeres on your T cells.
Every time your cells divide, your telomeres get shorter. The shorter your telomeres get, the older your cells become. This includes the aging of T cells within our immune system. This is why and how our immune system ages and becomes weakened.
As a matter of fact… stresses, toxins and pollutants seem to shorten the telomeres on the T cells faster than any other.
Then the surviving T cells are forced to divide to replace themselves, and the more they divide, the more they use up their telomeres, the shorter they get, and the more they get to that immune senescence that we talked about.
When your T cells stop dividing, your immune system is wrecked.
This is why the immune system is the most important one to keep young.
But it doesn’t stop there, you see…

Every Part of Your Body Has Its Own Separate Immune Defense

From your brain and your heart, to your pancreas, none of it functions right without strong immune cells.

Not a single system, not a single organ, not a single tissue can survive the effects of age, toxins and pollutants from the environment without being able to defend itself.
It’s a built in expected part of biology.
You need to repair the damage, you need to clear out the junk and your ou need to fight off invaders.
But then as your immune system ages, you stop doing that and the damage builds, cells begin to die, inflammation runs wild and this impacts everything.
Like your brain…
“Activating immune cells can revitalize the aging brain.”[13,14]
And in your lungs…
“Targeting killer T cells in the lungs could lead to immunity.”[15]
Your immune system even protects your eyes….
“Fading vision linked to aging of immune cells.”[16]
A failing immune system accelerates all kinds of aging…
“Aging T cells make us old.”

You don’t have to sit back and wait for that to happen. 

We have measurable ways of proving that we can slow the aging of the T cells and even rejuvenate aged T cells, which has an amazing sequela.
All the symptoms of old age, like brain fog and senior moments, battered joints, hard to lose weight around the abdomen, lower blood flow which has so many consequences, a faint or weaker heart and the imbalance of blood sugar that’s so common in America today leading to a wrecked metabolism.
And without an active metabolism, you can’t do so many of the other functions that you are depending on.
You get slower, weaker, smaller lungs.
Fading vision can be a direct consequence of the shortening of telomeres, and that is part of the controlled mechanism of aging that we are intent on measuring, altering and proving that our interventions changes those things.
Immune aging could be thought of as the cause of all aging.
The problem is, no one’s really talking about this.
You won’t find it from your doctor, you won’t find it on CNN, and really it is often negated as if it’s a minor specialty.
No… it really is the basis of. If you’re beyond about 40 years old, you need to be concerned about this. And the further you get beyond 35 or 40, the more important and the more central it becomes to your overall health.
And no one else is talking about telomeres at all, especially not how telomeres are weakening your T cells and how your T cells are the primary instrument, not antibodies.
The cellular immunity is really the central controlling thing.
You can’t just add antibodies and expect the whole system to work like it did in your youth. You need to rebuild the health and vigor of your T cells.
This is cutting edge research.
It’s light years ahead of the conventional pharmaceutical approach, because it’s the real underlying cause. And once we know the underlying cause, we can pursue the real solution.
There’s only one thing to do…

Put Your Immune System Back On Track

To keep you healthy, to keep you free of worries, but you have to do it at the cellular level. 

And thanks to that Nobel prize discovery…
There’s a system that we know accelerates aging, there’s the system that naturally controls aging, but also there’s a natural system that reboots the youth.
It’s an enzyme called telomerase.
If you’ve heard me talk in lectures to the medical establishment or in writing for our several newsletters, telomerase often comes up.
But what I want to say today is that telomerase is also found in your T cells.
The same way that it restores telomere length in heart cells, muscle cells, brain cells, liver cells and in the pancreas to allow you to produce insulin again in a diabetic…
It also can restore telomere length in the T cells — and that undoes years of immune aging.
There are few things that I’ve ever done in my clinic that are as important as reversing the immune age of weakened people who need rehabilitation, people who have chronic disease, people who have suffered heart attacks and strokes or people who are just suffering the consequence of unregulated telomeric shortening… and that’s often just the result of a life that is long lived.
Over time, it tends to get to us all. We all need some intervention there — to live the longest, healthiest and most vital life that we can.
In my clinic, we’ve reversed immune age by an average of 13 years on a group of 200 people.
And that’s just the average, some achieved much more.

The Biggest Breakthrough of the 21st Century on Aging 

And I’m proud to have been a part of it from the very beginning.
It puts how you age and how quickly you age in your own hands. It’s wonderfully empowering.
This completely rewrites the rules on aging.
This puts your immune system back to work to keep your brain, your lungs, your kidney and your heart working as they did when you were younger.
To keep runaway inflammation in check and keep you safe from pathogens, germs, viruses, bacteria and any foreign invader.
Is it any wonder that it won the Nobel prize finally in 2009, and ever since, it’s launched an entire new age of medicine. 
Elizabeth Blackburn, PhD, won the Nobel Prize in 2009 for discovering the molecular nature of telomeres.
We now know the power of telomerase to restore super immunity as being studied by Nobel laureates, Ivy league universities, and even government agencies like the CDC.
According to the CDC…
“T cells from the long telomere group exhibited significantly greater expansion than those from the short telomere group.”[17]
Expansion means that they were able to clone themselves and produce many copies of T cells that are conditioned to respond to a certain invader.
If you have T cells encounter something foreign, they divide to create a new army that specializes on killing that new invader.
Johns Hopkins found something similar…
“Immune cells Age and Die Prematurely in People with very short Telomeres.”[18]
People with longer telomeres had greater immune cell survivability. The people with short telomeres, their immune cells died prematurely.
That’s the last thing you would want.
The 2009 Nobel Prize winner, Elizabeth Blackburn, reports that “telomerase helps produce immune cells and stops telomeres from shortening.”[19]
UCLA said something similar about cortisol (the damaging effect of stress)…
“Enhancing telomerase levels can help the immune system ward off cortisol’s effect.”[20]
David Sinclair, a researcher at Harvard who’s been big on anti-aging and critical of many the things that the anti-aging community has done, says “telomere shortening reduces the number of immune cells in the elderly.”
Scientists have discovered a chemical that extends telomeres in the stem cells of patients with short telomeres — which could help older people too.[21]
The National Institute of health found…
“Accelerated Telomere Erosion is associated with a Declining Immune Function.”[22]
The University of Cambridge concluded…
“Telomerase positively influences T cell expansion.”[23]
And it doesn’t stop with your immune system.
The immune system is probably the one system that I would want to be younger.
God forbid when disease gets us in the end, it can be thought of as that disease gaining supremacy over your immune defenses.
But for all the chronic diseases, it’s our immune system that is trying to defend us from a cancer or from a deterioration.
We now have gunk getting in the way. We need an active immune system to clean up this garbage so that our cells can operate normally again. And this occurs in almost all chronic diseases.
The process of rebuilding your immune system can reset your heart, lung and brain age — just to name a few.
The world’s biggest universities and medical research centers, and the pinnacle of the medical establishment, are saying this is impossible in one breath and then in research they’re saying that you can rebuild your immune system and protect yourself, but they’re not relating that to the current situation.
That’s what you should be doing, rebuilding your immune system.

You don’t have to hide and wait — you should be doing something now to strengthen yourself.

Of course, that’s just common sense. And now we have the technology to reboot telomerase activity better than anything else we’ve ever done.
It’s hailed as the world’s number one, telomerase activator and it’s a great immune booster.
It unlocks an entire new layer of that cellular immune power I’ve been talking about….
And that’s what you need to keep you healthy and safe. Nothing else available delivers this kind of result.
When UCLA researchers used the cellular activator, everything changed, the results were astonishing.
The T cell activation was increased by up to seven-fold as a result of this single intervention.[24]
The T cells appeared younger, they acted faster, they divided again and they regained their ability to remember germs, viruses, bacteria and other pathogens and invaders.
And they replaced the loss of the immune cells that come with a lifelong exposure to toxins with brand new, very vital replacement cells.
This was a total immune system rewind, and it happened all in a single week.
Imagine that…
They restored aged T cells and rebooted the aging immune systems all in only seven days.
I cannot exaggerate just how many important and monumental this discovery is.
It restores your immunity at the most fundamental level.
This is what gives you lasting protection, not just for this season but for all seasons coming, no matter what threats are approaching.
And get this, it’s the only proven immune telomere activator and it’s a 100% natural.
Surprisingly enough, it’s not only 100% natural, it’s a God-given remedy and it works better than anything else man designed…
But it’s over 2,000 years old in its use and it’s one of many, many thousands of bioactive plants.
The technology company — that was originally researching turning on the enzyme telomerase, rebuild telomere length and reverse the aging clock in your T cells of your immune system — tested over 50,000 bioactive compounds and eventually they honed in, as I’ve done in my own research.
It’s been backed up by many different proven scientific studies and the whole thing has been very results and functional approach driven.
That means that we’re not only changing the numbers in the labs, but we’re changing the capabilities of the immune system that we can measure.
And as we restore telomeres and help turn back the clock on your immune age, we can keep other organ systems running on all cylinders.

So what is this technology?

How does it boost activity, in turn aging, withered old immune cells back into full combat ready soldiers that can protect you at any moment?

And how can you get it to protect yourself right now?

I’m Talking About Astragalus

It is a herb that has been used in traditional Chinese medicine.
It’s popular in Japan, South Korea and Taiwan, really throughout East Asia — and it’s still used today.
It was also hailed by the ancients for its immune property. Somehow they knew that astragalus root was not only an anti-aging tonic, but it also helped with immune strength.
And now we know that it may be related to the higher life expectancy that we see in the East Asians and the better heart and lung health markers that we see.
It definitely is related to why we see they have stronger immune system. Now, western medicine finally starting to agree.
Some of the big names like UCLA, Johns Hopkins, Sloan Kettering in fact are using astragalus in clinical trials. They’re testing various extracts with doses of 50 to 200 milligrams, some are on animals, but many are on the stage of testing in humans.
There’s one remarkable thing…
All the studies are making the same remarkable discovery — that from robust young lungs, to younger brains, to refreshed stem cells — they seem to find an age reversing effect with no dangerous side effects.
A mountain of clinical research has supported that you can make T cells young again, adding years of immune firepower to your most important system, giving you healthy, longer telomeres — and in some cases, by as much as a decade younger.[25]

Healthy telomerase activity supports…

  • Youthful production of nerve cells in the brain and the maintenance of those nerve cells[26]
  • Healthy new lungs that are clear, strong and younger — pumping more oxygen in the blood[27]
  • Healthy stem cell activity — supporting the body’s natural growth of new tissue and cartilage[28]
  • ​Healthy retinal cells — supporting crystal clear vision in patients[29]
  • ​Young-again brain power — rebooting years of sharper memory, learning and quicker recall[30]
  • ​A healthy, natural growth of new white blood cells that fend off all kinds of foreign invaders[31]
  • ​Younger heart power
  • ​Better bone strength
  • ​Supportive healthy blood sugar — restoring insulin production[32]
  • ​Healthy levels of cholesterol and blood pressure
  • ​Healthy natural killer cells are increased[33]
  • ​And so much more
The biggest breakthroughs are coming in the field of telomeres and how the telomeres relate to all of this.

When it Comes to Generating Healthier, Longer Telomeres, Nothing Comes Close to the Power of Astragalus

Again, UCLA researchers studied an astragalus compound in a double blinded clinical trial that used a specific kind of extract from the root.
This study was 50 milligrams, but they compared this to other potential telomerase activators…
The astragalus knocked all the way just out of the park.
In just 72 hours, they saw get this, a 330% boost in telomerase activity compared to any other thing tested.[34]
And as a result, they saw a similar boost in new T cells.
In fact, only the astragalus compound made a significant impact on the growth of the new T cells.

Bottom line…

Astragalus Is an Immune System Miracle Like No Other

This natural breakthrough rejuvenates every kind of immune cell and it gives your body’s defenses the activity level of someone many years younger and without side effects.
That’s the finding of the study led by the researchers from the Rockefeller Institute, from Sloan Kettering and Dartmouth.
These folks gave a specific astragalus extract to a 100 patients, 63 and older, where they used varying doses in this study from 10 to 50 milligrams, but results were breathtaking.
There were fewer cells with shorter telomeres. They reported “positive remodeling of the immune system.”[35] And that’s what’s important to our discussion here.
Remember with age, your T cells fall asleep. This is what we referred to as immune senescence. But they found decades of sleeping T cells were reawakened.
There were fewer cells with shorter telomeres. They reported positive remodeling of the immune system. And that’s what’s important to our discussion here.
Remember with age, your T cells fall asleep. This is what we referred to as immune senescence. But they found decades of sleeping T cells were reawakened.
The final conclusion, age reversal of five to 20 years in the biomarker of immune aging. That’s like what we have done in the clinic and we have our own biomarkers of immune aging, which have shown similar results.
In layman’s terms, their immune age becomes decades younger.
My patients saw these exact same results in our own clinical study. The exact same results.
What this means is simple, astragalus is tested and proven clinically to be an immune agent powerhouse unlike any other.
There’s nothing else that’s been shown to add decades of immune health, all with no chemicals, no harmful ingredients and no side effects.

That’s why I’ve selected this as my anchor ingredient in my new immunity formula…

Shield Immune Booster

It reboots your body’s innate immune shield, giving you kind of a bulletproof protection from all kinds of foreign invaders now and in the future, no matter what they might be.

It’s no secret why this sort of protection is more important than the other antibody related immunity and why it’s so important now, more important than ever.
For the first time, I’ve decided to bring the solution directly to the public.
That means you don’t have to visit my Sears Institute for anti-aging medicine in Palm beach, Florida.
You can get your hands on this today and I’m going to show you exactly how.
First let me tell you, what is Shield immunity? And why is it better to do it this way with this astragalus based formula?
You see, most astragalus solutions only target a single bioactive component, but that’s not the way to get the most power.
What I’m doing with this formula is the same thing that I recommend in my patients.
First of all, we don’t use a single distilled component of astragalus, but we use the entire root — and I recommend that you do the same.
Because according to many different pieces of clinical research that I’ve put together — including a really seminal one from a Sloan Kettering Memorial which you could regard as the number one hospital in the world — the entire astragalus root is greater than the sum of its parts.
When they split up astragalus into separate parts — then tested these parts against the whole root — what they found was remarkable. The entire Root showed better Support for Antibodies.[36]
Even more incredibly…
The researchers concluded that every component of astragalus has a single immune role — much like the immune cells do themselves. Only astragalus as a whole can impact the entire immune system.
This is what I call the entourage effect. You want to bring all these different components together because together they have a greater effect than one individually.
And effect known that in medicine as synergy.
Synergy means that when you take all the individuals and add them up, they don’t account for the total effect. That there’s some kind of multiplication that occurs and this is particularly interesting when it applies the immune system.
Well the immune system is a natural system of detecting and responding to threats and in the responding, there’s often a gearing up where you multiply cells.
If you can affect other things in that chain of command, you might eliminate a bottleneck that is keeping you from mounting the robust immune response that you could in your youth.
Together, all of these things activate telomerase, particularly we’re focusing on activating telomerase in the T cells.
They reboot aging T cells and put them to work again on the front lines defending you similarly to the immune systems that we see in the very young and healthy.
I’ve also added seven other complimentary natural ingredients that are separate proven immunity boosters for this reason, they enhance the power of the astragalus root. 
An effect known that in medicine as synergy.

There are several sets of immune boosters that we put in Shield.

The next most important is a group called flavonoids.

We have two herbs in particular, cat’s claw and a nutrient derived from plants called persaten that are natural moderators of your immune system.
Remember, as you age your immune system, eventually because it is weakened and it’s under threat, it tends to run wild. It makes mistakes.
As it becomes senile, it loses sight of the regulatory mechanisms. And then it begins firing inappropriately and causes inflammation, whether it’s friend or foe alike, it has a response that tends to damage, destroy and be an additional toxin to your sensitive organs.
Cat’s claw
Persaten (nutrient derived from plants)
Remember, as you age your immune system, eventually because it is weakened and it’s under threat, it tends to run wild. It makes mistakes.
It becomes senile and loses sight of the regulatory mechanisms. And then it begins firing inappropriately and causes inflammation.
It has a response that tends to damage, destroy and be an additional toxin to your sensitive organs.
That’s why many of our most sensitive organs like our heart, kidneys, pancreas, eyes and brain are wrecked with age.
That’s where the flavonoids come in.
They support how your immune system is supposed to work.
This means friendly fire is restrained and you have a similar role with antioxidants.
I’m sure you’ve heard of them. They have many different roles, but the one role I’m focusing on here is that antioxidants protect immune cells.
They stand on the frontline of germ warfare in conjunction with the power of your immune cells. 
You remember immune cells are the most vulnerable to attacks from invading free radicals. They are involved in responding to areas of inflammation.
Those areas might have high inflammatory markers and run away of free radicals, that damage those first responders.
And they’re fighting all those toxins to keep you safe and they tend to be exposed to that stuff so they age quicker than other cells.
That’s where the antioxidants come in.

That’s where the antioxidants come in.
They help keep your immune systems young.
They keep your DNA healthy and protect telomeres from aging so the immune cells can do their job without aging and weakening.
This is why I loaded Shield with the world’s top antioxidants from my research.
Camu camu is a Brazilian fruit that I found in one of my trips to the Amazon.
It was presented to me by my friend’s mother — who’s also a doctor living there on the Amazon — as a milkshake. I was attracted to it’s a wonderful flavor, but it turns out it is one of the world’s best sources of the water soluble antioxidant, vitamin C.
It has more than oranges — more than any other fruit.
Camu camu contains 30 times more vitamin C than an orange and one of the world’s best sources of antioxidants. That’s why I have included it in my new immune booster, Shield.
At the same area right there in the Amazon, I found something you’ve probably heard of called the açaí fruit.
It’s a grape-like berry that grows on a palm tree in South America. And it is richer in antioxidants than blueberries.
Remember blueberries have more antioxidants than blackberries which have more than raspberries which have more than strawberries. That is a powerful berry for antioxidants.
Your immune system can’t win any battle without antioxidant power on your side. Luckily, açaí are high in antioxidant compounds like polyphenols and polysaccharides, which have been shown in the lab to stimulate immune response.
And then we also put something called cyanthox in there — which is a bioactive ingredient of the sea buckthorn and has been measured to hold not just the most antioxidants of any sea plant — but out does any land based plant.
It’s the most powerful antioxidant extract in the world.
On top of immunity-boosting compounds, sea buckthorn also contains several antioxidants that protect the body against the effects of free radicals.
Finally, I have two potent oxygen sources in there.
Why do I focus on oxygen?
Because oxygen fuels your white blood cells and feeds energy-producing mitochondria in your immune cells.
Oxygen is also important in the way that your immune system and including the natural killer cells kill foreign invaders.
They do this by burning it with a hyped-up form of oxygen, but they need an oxygen laden environment to be able to do that.
It’s also simultaneously a source of rocket fuel and ammunition for your immune cells — because oxygen creates robust, strong lungs which are very important for fighting respiratory infections.
That’s why I recommend two of the world’s most powerful oxygen herbs.
First is an herb that I found many years ago in a trip to Peru.
This root — you’ve probably heard of — is called maca.
But the maca root only has a very high oxygen delivery mechanism when you harvest the maca from very high altitudes.
We were up above 10,000 feet where we found this particular kind of maca because.
If this plant survives at 12,000 feet where hardly anything else can grow — it has done so by producing enzymes that get more use out of the low level of oxygen… and then when you consume that maca, it can do the same thing for you.
It’s believed to be taking a major physiological role in oxygen metabolism by the production of nitric oxide.[37]
Nitric oxide, by the way, is the new thing in sports performance, causing vasodilation. Meaning, you get more oxygen and blood to the tissue faster. And it’s something I use for the athletes in my center and have for years.
With Shield, we use a specific kind of maca root that is harvested at high altitudes where hardly anything else can grow.
There’s another similar mechanism going on with a mushroom that also grows at high altitude – but this one comes from the Himalayas and grows at some of the highest elevations in the world.[38]
And that’s the cordyceps mushroom.
If you take the right extract from the cordyceps mushroom, it can do the same thing and boost your oxygen delivering capacity in your blood.

In total, you get…

  • The world’s best telomerase activator
  • The world’s best flavanoids
  • The world’s best antioxidants
  • The world’s best oxygen boosters

All in one single formula and all designed and tested to improve your immune system defenses. 

Nowhere else can you find this many complimentary immune boosters all working together to build your body’s immune shield and provide you with protection against any threat that might be out there.
And I’ve held nothing back. For the first time I’ve combined all of these most recent cutting edge technology, all from top shelf research and my own research at our anti-aging center.
We’ve unleashed this body’s innate immune power, and you can get it all from a single solution. I want you to begin using this to build your immune shield right away.

Don’t miss out on this most important solution…

I Want You to Begin Using This to Build Your Immune Shield Right Away

I want you to take back your immune power now so that you can feel safe, start living your life to the fullest and enjoying the health you deserve — the health you rightfully deserve now.
Most importantly, I want every American to be able to access it and reap these benefits as possible.
That’s why I’ve instructed my team to make this available to you.
Every day our office is being asked about our solutions for your immune system.  Millions of Americans are waking up to the threats we face, and they’re searching for answers.
You’ve heard today about all of the incredible immune power that Shield delivers.
So the question is, for something so powerful, what would be a fair price?
Our team spent many long hours discussing this.  Some suggested as much as $299.
And for all it delivers, all of this immune protection, we feel like we could have charged this. After all, one of those trendy IV immunity boosts can set you back that much. Even more.
And they don’t contain the full astragalus root. Nor these complimentary antioxidants.
They don’t support your T cells, reprogramming your immune strength at the most fundamental level.
They don’t potentially add up to 20 years of immune vitality and restore your Immune Shield. They don’t come close.
But the situation is urgent. It’s a must that ALL Americans protect ourselves from foreign invaders.
A one-time offer only for the winter of 2020
This is why I’ve priced a single dose…
NOT for $200 or even $50
ONLY $1.00
That’s right. You pay $1 for each dose of Shield.
And you can lock this price in for life!
Shield Immune Boost Dr. Al Sears Primal Force
We will never make an offer like this ever again. And I can’t promise you’ll be able to claim it much longer.
After all, our office only has a limited supply on hand. We ordered a batch for only about 200 people.
You have perhaps only moments to lock in this deal before we’re sold out and then you will have to pay the standard retail cost.
Why wait?
Especially when there’s never been a more important time to protect yourself and prepare.
I want to put every weapon in your hands possible…
I want you to remember this as the day you finally felt safe again. The day you finally felt back in control.
That starts the moment you take action. The changes can come fast.
Many of my patients will attest to that… 
William M. of Jupiter, FL, says, “I have been following Dr. Sears’ advice for less than one year, and I feel better, sharper, and more alive than after 5 years using traditional medical doctors. I certainly don’t feel 64 anymore. I feel much younger. I feel so darn good it’s beyond description.”
K.O., age 50, writes that after seeing me, “In just 24 hours, my energy levels were higher than they’ve been in years. Thank you, Dr. Sears, from the bottom of my (now totally healthy!) heart.”
And Jack C. of Palm Beach, FL reports, “Within 3 months, I started to feel years younger.”
