Quick Activation of Immune Cells
Activates huge amounts of white blood cells, neutrophils, and natural killer cells which are part of your first line of defense against various health threats.
Safe to Take Daily
Immune Health Basics uses natural ingredients which are safe for daily use by people of all ages. Won't over stimulate your immune system, which can be harmful to long-term health.
Broad Spectrum of Protection
Helps protect you from many health threats by promoting a healthy immune response.
Immune Health Basics’ active ingredient is Wellmune®, a unique beta 1, 3/1, 6 glucan, a natural complex carbohydrate derived from the cell wall of a proprietary strain of baker’s yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) that is clinically proven to strengthen the immune system. Wellmune® does not cause a yeast reaction such as Candida albicans. Even those suffering from yeast allergies can safely use Wellmune®, as all the mannoproteins have been removed during the purification process. In fact, being over 80 percent pure, Wellmune® cannot technically be called yeast, instead it is a natural beta glucan source proven safe to consume all year round for the whole family.
Wellmune® is one of the most researched and effective immune product available. Its unique structure maximizes its effectiveness in helping to keep the body healthy.
How a beta glucan affects your immune system is related to the specific form it takes. Even slight structural differences in a beta glucan can impact its effectiveness.
There are significant differences between beta glucans derived from cereals, yeast and fungi. Even among yeast beta glucans, which have the most potent immune support properties, research shows that slight differences in molecular structure and purity can affect biological activity and the resulting health benefits.*
- Cereals/Oats. Oat-based beta glucans are notable for promoting heart health and helping manage LDL (bad) cholesterol. But scientific evidence does not strongly support this type of beta glucan for enhancing immune system function. So while keeping your heart functioning and cholesterol levels in check are important in preserving health, oat beta glucans can’t help ward off threats to immune health.
- Mushrooms. Although mushroom beta glucans have been shown to have immune health benefits, research indicates that their potency is lower than that of certain well-studied baker’s yeast beta glucans. Because there are countless undiscovered species of mushrooms—and among the known types, research on benefits is mixed—they may not be the best overall choice for immune support.
- Yeast. Yeast-derived beta glucans usually originate in either baker’s yeast or brewer’s yeast. Even though both are beta 1,3/1,6 glucan from Saccharomyces cerevisiae, the source matters—the beta glucans extracted from the cell walls of baker’s yeast have a different molecular pattern from that of brewer’s yeast, which can influence the immune-modulating abilities of the final product. Research supports the immune-modulating properties of baker’s yeast beta glucan—but not all strains are the same.
Immune Health Basics and Rev•Up Wellness' Wellmune beta glucan is developed from a proprietary strain of yeast and has a unique structure to maximize its immune effectiveness. It is supported by biomarker, mechanism-of-action, and over a dozen published, peer-reviewed human clinical research studies that demonstrate its ability to improve overall physical health, maintain healthy energy levels, and provide immune support for all ages and lifestyles.
