Immune Health Basics contains Wellmune®, a natural yeast beta 1,3/1,6 glucan derived from the cell wall of a highly purified, proprietary strain of baker’s yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae). This unique immune boosting ingredient triggers human immune defenses that have evolved over thousands of years to protect the body.
The scientific understanding of Wellmune’s mechanism of action in the body is well documented in published, peer-reviewed research. Once swallowed, immune cells in the gastrointestinal tract take up Wellmune and transport it to immune organs throughout the body. While in the immune organs, immune cells called macrophages digest Wellmune into smaller fragments and slowly release them over a number of days. The fragments bind to neutrophils, via complement receptor 3 (CR3), which are the most abundant immune cells in the body. In fact, neutrophils account for 50-70% of all immune cells.
Primed with Wellmune, billions of neutrophil cells more quickly circulate throughout the body to kill foreign challenges. Unlike other immune health ingredients, Wellmune boosts immune function without over stimulating the immune system.
Human clinical studies demonstrate that Wellmune helps support healthy immune function, as evidenced by better health and overall well-being.
