Has changed my life for the better
I only take them if I can feel a cold coming on and if I catch it early enough I don't get a cold but certainly reduces the duration of any cold by half for me. I have anxiety if I run out of this amazing product! Now my whole family takes them if starting to feel unwell. I haven't had a sick day from work ever since having this product - would highly recommend.

Made me sick!
After taking Immune Defence I became severely nauseous and couldn’t stop vomiting. I thought it was something Id eaten for breakfast so took it again a week later - nope- same thing happened, so this was the problem. Never again! Don’t recommend it to anyone, if I could give it 0 stars I would. I cannot believe how badly it made me ill.

Just be careful using this product
Whenever I felt a cold coming on I took this product + Echinacea and got over the cold quickly.
With the Pandemic I took them morning and evening for 8 months. For 5 of those months I had the worst IBS I have ever had and its not unusual for something to set my IBS off for a day or two not 5+ months so started eliminating things I ate/took. The last ones were the supplements and overnight IBS was better and now 3 days later gone. Also developed rash around eyes which Dr gave me Diprosone. So far no rash has come back since cutting the products....

Within 10 minutes of taking one tablet my body started to break out in hives as an allergic reaction. This has happened both times I have taken the Immune defence. All I can say is I’ll never touch this stuff again. Never been Allergic to anything in my life and in 39 years old.

I have cold thought I would take this, I forgot I had taken it before and was on the toilet half the night. This time it gave me severe nausea . Something in there that does not agree with me. Also had problem breathing after my nose ran and ran.

Had taken the product a few times and hadn’t connected the slightly itchy soles of feet with these tablets - just thought it was unusual.
Final time I took them I started violently vomiting within 15 mins, followed by a hot red rash all over my body. Ended up in an ambulance and spent the day in emergency with an anaphylactic reaction. Only found similar reviews when I did some research afterwards.

Sudden allergic reaction
I have used this product for years, swearing by its benefits ... the last bottle has caused allergic reaction every both times taken. At first I put it down to something else, but its now undeniable. Felt a slight sniffle coming on, so reached for the Immune defence, within 10 minutes eyes puffy and itchy, then sudden extreme itch of hands and feet, runny nose, sneezing and lump in throat. Without immediate strong dose of Phenergan, I feel my breathing may have been compromised. Very scary and not a great start to my working day!

Beware, this product may give you an allergic reaction
I apologize for copying and pasting another person's review, however this is what exactly happened to me.
I have taken Immune Defence for a couple years now whenever I felt a cold coming on and they have been awesome, until the last 2 times i have had a terrible skin reaction, starting with extremely itchy palms and soles of feet the first time and quickly took some Zyrtec antihistamine tablet which counter acted the effects. Then the second time thinking maybe it was something else that caused it, then it happened again, itchy feet and hands a...

HAVEN’T HAD A SICK DAY IN YEARS
I saw this product on the shelf of our local pharmacy many years ago. I’m not into alternative medicines and/or vitamin supplements etc but I really liked the name ‘Immune Defence’ so I bought a bottle and I’ve never looked back. I haven’t had a sick day in many many years. I also haven’t had the flu injection since taking this product and no flu has hit me yet. I even called a doctor who appears weekly on a local radio station and asked his opinion and he agreed it is a great product. It is unfortunate that some claim they have had some type o...f reaction to the product but for those of us who don’t experience any negative effects, I swear by it. Although it is recommended to be taken daily, I only take them every second day. On the down side, the tablets are a bit expensive although they are constantly discounted at Chemist Warehouse Stores. The larger bottle of 60 tablets is far more economical than the bottle of 30 tablets. The tablets are also quite bitter. I emailed the company advising that the tablets would be much easier to take in capsule form which would eliminate the bitter taste. They responded naming the ingredient that causes the bitter taste but made no comment regarding producing the product in a capsule form. All in all I wouldn’t be without my Immune Defence.

Worked wonders until......
I have taken Immune Defence during winter for a few years now and they have been awesome, until the last 2 times i have had a terrible skin reaction, starting with extremely itchy palms and soles of feet the first time and then the second time itchy feet and hands and a red hot itchy rash all over my body. I didnt think it was these that caused the reaction because i have taken them for a couple of years now. I have never been allergic to anything before, so was at logger heads to know what had caused it until i looked up to see if anyone had e...xperieced this. Very scary to think what reaction i might have had when taking the next one if i hadnt found these reviews. I thought it was something i had eaten. People should be warned when buying to know of the side effects that can happen, i recommend them to everyone which is a bit of a worry.
Careful allergic reaction
About an hour after taking my torso and back became red, hot and itchy!!! I am allergic to some ingredient. Had to take an antihistamine to calm down. just be careful.
Warning! Severe Allergic reaction
About 15 mins after taking the tablet my temperature rose significantly, and I began sweating profusely. Both my palms became extremely itchy. I then started throwing up and diarrhoea followed, both happening simultaneously. I started to have severe cramping and felt like I was going to pass out. I honestly have never felt so awful in my life. There is little to no information about the possible side effects of this product and the potential anaphylaxis it can cause. Be very aware of the side effects!
Bought this after being led to believe these sorts of things are good for you. 2 shots of Adrenalin later and a day in hospital changed my mind. Im not saying its terrible stuff but be aware these types of drugs can potentially kill.
Im 37 years old. Healthy and lucky to be alive after taking the prescribed dosage. Just because its natural does not mean its safe for everyone. The doctors in the hospital told me they believe these types of products shouldn't be sold.
I struggled with colds on and off quite frequently and since taking my immune defence tablets about 6 months ago (1 a day if I remember) I haven't suffered with a cold since! If I ever feel a cold coming on, I'll start taking 2 a day until symptoms go away - it never eventuates into an actual cold though. On the downside, they taste disgusting! So once you get past the taste, texture and size of these things, they'll do wonders. Highly recommend :)
Questions & Answers

is it safe to take panadol daily with immune defence
I take 2 x osteo paracetamol three times a day to successfully manage arthritis in my hands. Since taking 1 Ethical Nutrients Immune Defence daily, I've noticed that the arthritis has flared up badly. Are they working against each other? Or is it just a coincidence?
I’ve been taking for 3 days. My arthritis flare up is so bad, I can hardly walk. My IBS has flared up too. I can’t believe the reviews I’m reading.
