TFE is a multi-vitamin supplement that also helps to maintain good health. The most significant membrane antioxidant is vitamin E, which helps maintain the structure of nearly all cell membranes.1 It scavenges free radicals to end lipid peroxidation and helps to prevent oxidative DNA damage.1 Zinc is the only naturally occurring lymphocyte mitogen, stimulating cell division in lymphocytes and increasing their phagocytic activity.2 Zinc is especially necessary for T cell proliferation in the thymus as it is a cofactor for thymulin, a hormone involved in T cell differentiation and function.2 Low levels of zinc lead to decreased immune cell number and function, including a reduced synthesis of cytokines that function against intracellular bacteria.2 Vitamin A further contributes to maintaining immune function by stimulating the development of lymphocytes, including natural killer and T and B cells.3 Deficiencies of vitamin A result in a decreased ability of macrophages to ingest and destroy bacteria.3 Damiana is a shrub native to the Americas, and naturally contains flavonoids and phenolic acids.4
