- Wellmune® - is a natural yeast beta 1,3/1,6 glucan derived from Saccharomyces cerevisiae that supports overall health and wellness by boosting the body’s immune system. It primes and strengthens the key immune function of neutrophils (the most abundant immune cells) throughout the body without over stimulating the immune system. Immune cells activated with Wellmune® do not behave differently until an immune challenge is present. Once a challenge is presented, the neutrophils then respond more quickly and effectively to signals from the immune system.
Wellmune® is clinically proven to help strengthen the immune system. Backed by 9 clinical studies, (including 3 with young children), Wellmune® has been shown to reduce the severity and duration of cold and flu symptoms.
• 68% of children taking Wellmune® reported “good” health status compared to only 15% of the children taking a placebo.*
• Children taking Wellmune® had 6 fewer sick days over a 12-week period, 2/3 fewer URTI (Upper Respiratory Tract Infections) symptoms and fewer episodes of allergy symptoms.*
- Vitamin C - is an essential nutrient for optimal immune function and its antioxidant action helps protect our body from free radical damage. Humans cannot produce Vitamin C in their bodies so we need to get it from supplements or food. Immune challenges increase our need for vitamin C which helps maintain optimal immune function. Vitamin C helps to shorten recovery time after infections.
- Zinc - is essential for immune system development and function and is important for growth and healing. It has the ability to inhibit viral replication thus reducing the proliferation of viral infections. It also assists the body’s fight against all microbial infections.
