IBE makes a great resveratrol product called "Reverse". It also contains Shilajit, an ayurvedic herb that is known to stimulate the immune system and even lower recovery time in muscle.
Like others have mentioned, Vitamin C and Garlic are very good as well.

Great suggestions so far. I just wanted to add that Beta-D-Glucans (Beta-1,3/1,6-D-Glucans) are among the most potent immune-system enhancers known to science.

Reverse is an awesome product that is ahead of it's time in the market !
Also, when X-Lean get's reformulated you can look for that to have some great immune system boosting effects as well and cortisol control.
I've also heard that Zinc is great for the immune system.

echinacea and vitamin c are good
IIRC gut health is supposed to be good for not getting sick

Great suggestions by all, I also think a quality multi vitamin, like Now Adam, Orange Triad or Animal Pak go along way in strengthening the immune system and supporting overall health

Zinc Sulfate (zinc is a known and proven activator of both the innate and adaptive (genetic) immune responses) Zinc sulfate is the best form of zinc.
Sodium Selenite (much more biological active than regular selenium)

Zinc sulfate is an extremely soluble form of zinc, zinc itself is a very anti-inflammatory compound. It has the ability to downregulate the expression of TNF and FAS membrane receptors and zinc is a powerful activator of the entire immune system via its ability to control the activity of a host of proteins that contain "zinc fingers".
Sodium Selenite is same principle, solubility/biological activity.
Neither compound will do anything if you can't get it into the body in a consistently high enough amount to activate the required immunity triggers.
Thus, my main reason for those specific compounds is the bodies ability to utilize them at a higher rate than other types of elemental zinc and selenium bound compounds.

In terms of selenium, the best selenium products actually combine those different forms I mentioned earlier. For a good reason.

You take what you want
I will stick with mine...
Didnt really want to argue over a simple thread of "best immune system enhancers"
But am surprised that you havent attacked the effectiveness or total lack of in regards to echinacea...among other things mentioned rather than the "form or type" of zinc and selenium.

I did some pubmedding, sulfate is one of the more superior forms, however the ONLY Zinc attatchment I could find to be better was Zinc Glycinate..

I use an echinacea supp with three different echinacea extracts, which gives a better spectrum of protection. I also keep up my adaptogenic herb intake and probiotics.

My cats breath smells like cat food.
Dark leafy greens, fresh organic fruits and vegetables, oil of oregano, glutamine, alkaline water and fresh lemon juice in water.

I worked at GNC for about two months.. During this time a study came out disproving echinacea's effects.. we were told to still try and sell the products like it never came out.
I've searched to no avail on finding it though: It was a specific study on echinacea and the "cold" not necessarily immune however.

I remember reading somewhere that long term Echinacea use actually supresses the immune system and that it has not been proven at preventing disease. I've never used it, but Glutamine, Elderberry, and Garlic is all goooood!

As mentioned early, D3 is one of the best. I have seen a few studies that show it is very powerful. With the other benefits you get from D3, I would start with it.
