Biological stressors are all around us, constantly struggling to gain a stronghold in our bodies. Most of the time we don’t think about microorganic creatures in the environment because of our immune system. Occasionally, certain microorganic agents gain the upper hand and call our immune systems into action. In times like these our bodies need all the nutritional support they can get.

History of VS-C
VS-C was developed by Dr. Wenwei Xie. His formulation is based on centuries-old Chinese herbal philosophy. Dr. Wenwei Xie, a traditional Chinese medical doctor from Beijing China, came to the United States as part of a research project on Chinese remedies for the herpes simplex virus. He formulated this product and tested it in the lab. It reduced viral counts more than 50% with no toxicity!
The researchers were unable to find any “active” compounds in the herbs that could be developed into drugs, so the project was abandoned. As a result, he introduced the formula to Nature’s Sunshine, who made it commercially available. When looking for a company with which to share his formula, Dr. Xie picked Nature’s Sunshine above all the rest.
VS-C contains dandelion root, purslane herb, indigo leaves and root, thlaspi herb, bupleurum root, pinellia rhizome, scute root, cinnamon twig, licorice root and ginseng root.
