Berkeley Immune Support Formula
Diindolylmethane (DIM)
Immune System Booster

Berkeley BioSciences, Inc., manufacturer of the prominent nutritional immune booster, Berkeley Immune Support Formula, a Diindolylmethane (DIM) Immune System Booster, which was launched with nutritional technology discovered and developed by senior scientists at UC Berkeley’s Nutritional Sciences Department and Cancer Research Laboratory, proudly announces its Campaign for Immune Health Awareness. 

The Campaign for Immune Health Awareness aims to raise awareness about the impact that Vitamin D deficiency and obesity in America have on the health and function of the immune system and why addressing both of these matters is important from a public health perspective. 

Approximately 40% of American adults are Vitamin D deficient with the highest rate of deficiency seen in African Americans (82%), followed by Hispanics (70%).  Additionally, according to the CDC, 74% of adult Americans are overweight, with 42% being obese. Vitamin D deficiency and obesity both significantly and negatively impact the immune system. An overlay of this data reveals their compounding effect, especially in minority communities. 

Furthermore, if Americans live north of the 37th parallel (a latitude line just south of San Franciso on the West Coast and just south of Richmond, Virginia on the East Coast, which roughly divides the US in two), due to insufficient UVB rays from the sun during the fall and winter seasons, they can seasonally develop Vitamin D deficiency in northern US states. In fact, in places like New England, even children who normally enjoy playing in the sun are known to develop significant Vitamin D deficiencies in the fall and winter.

To this effect, Berkeley BioSciences announces a $20 Rebate on the purchase of the Berkeley Immune Support Formula for any adult who makes a posting on their social media platform regarding the importance of monitoring one’s Vitamin D status and maintaining a healthy BMI (Body Mass Index) to maintain a healthy immune system and cites some of the extensive scientific literature from the US National Library of Medicine on why maintaining a healthy Vitamin D status and a healthy BMI are important for immune system health.

Chronic or seasonal immune deficiency within the US stemming from chronic or seasonal Vitamin D deficiency and the obesity epidemic, especially within minority communities, are issues that must be confronted through strong public health leadership and we believe that now is the time for greater public awareness regarding these important matters. 

To apply to receive this rebate as a part of your purchase, please provide us with a link to your publicly viewable social media posting about Vitamin D, obesity and immunity in the special order instructions section of your order. You can also apply to receive this rebate after you have made a purchase by e-mailing us a screen shot of your posting if your social media posting is a private one and only viewable by your friends and community members. 

Our goal with this campaign is to raise community awareness about these two important issues: Vitamin D status monitoring which can be done with tests ordered by physicians as a part of one’s annual physical exam and the importance of maintaining a healthy body weight. 

For individuals looking for a head start on references to cite in their social media postings, the following references at the bottom of this announcement are a good starting point. You can cite any and or all of them in your social media postings along with others that you find at the National Library of Medicine to motivate your friends and community members to check their Vitamin D status at least once a year and to maintain a healthy body weight to support their immune system. 

Everyone should follow their physician’s advice on how to maintain a healthy Vitamin D status and how to achieve a healthy body weight to support their immune system. Please note that for individuals who are severely Vitamin D deficient, they need to receive prescription Vitamin D medications from their physician in order to achieve proficiency. These prescription medications take 6 to 8 weeks to bring patients from severe deficiency to proficiency. Dietary supplements are generally not effective in assisting individuals in achieving proficiency if they are severely deficient. The determination of Vitamin D deficiency and ways to effectively achieve proficiency are decisions that need to be made by one’s healthcare provider. 

For nutritional recommendations on effective and long-lasting weight loss techniques, please visit our Immune Health page and feel free to reference those recommendations or others that you find at the US National Library of Medicine on how to slowly and effectively lose weight to support the immune system in your social media postings.

The more information you provide through your social media postings to your respective communities, the more of an impact you will help to make in terms of awareness about these important issues that affect the immune health status of the United States.
