A dietary supplement to support immune system health.*
IMMUNITY + GUT RESTORATION* is aimed at providing the most
potent immune supportive nutrients both on a daily basis as well as
during acute immune stress.*
Because these ingredients support the immune system’s ability to adapt and not simply up-regulate immune function, those with hyperactive immune responses may
also incorporate this formula, under a physician’s supervision, into
their daily regimen.
Wellmune ® Beta Glucan
The researched ingredients in IMMUNITY + GUT RESTORATION* include the yeast beta 1,3/ 1,6 glucan derived from the cell wall of a proprietary strain. Wellmune® is clinically proven ingredient to support the functionality of the immune system. It has been studied for its effects on supporting healthy respiratory tract function and
immune response after physical stress, such as exercise. This branded version of Beta glucan has also been found to play a support the balance of Th1/Th2 (Kirmaz, Bayrak, Yilmaz, & Yuksel, 2005).
Another ingredient in IMMUNITY + GUT RESTORATION*, Monolaurin, exhibits potent capabilities relative to microbial balance in the body (Lieberman, Enig, & Preuss, 2006). Researchers have found that Monolaurin can provide broad immune support (Lieberman,Enig, & Preuss, 2006), can support the body’s ability to adapt
appropriately when in the presence of many gram positive bacteria (Peterson & Schlievert, 2006), and balance the presence of Candida albicans (Bergsson, Arnfinnsson, Steingrimsson, & Thormar, 2001). Monolaurin achieves this at the cellular level by incorporating itself into the cell membrane of gram-positive bacteria, supporting a healthy level of replication (Tokarskyy & Marshall, 2008).
Colostrum (yielding Immunoglobulin G)
Finally, IMMUNITY + GUT RESTORATION* contains colostrum. Colostrum supports immune system health through its content of transfer factors, peptide and protein complexes, that directly support immune capabilities.*
Bovine colostrum also contains naturally occurring compounds, such as lactoferrin and imunnoglobulin G, which our healthy cells continually recruit and utilize to support the functionality of the immune system. These compounds also provide support to the immune system by working in the digestive system prior to foreign invaders even making it into the blood
(Cesarone MR, et al., 2007).
