Supplements have been shown to be a very helpful way of strengthening your immune system. However, no single nutrient can give you all of the support you need from the massive amounts of organisms you encounter on a daily basis. That’s why we formulated our powerful Immunity Defense ULTRA™ formula, which is a blend of natural ingredients, each of which have been studied and shown to support healthy immune function and respiratory health. Immunity Defense ULTRA™ is designed to promote robust immune health year round, and especially during changes in season.
Epicor®: An Unexpected Immune Booster
The story behind 100% natural Epicor®'s discovery as a natural immune booster is unusual. In 1998, managers at a company producing a natural livestock feed additive derived from a yeast culture noticed that workers who had direct contact with the ingredient had unusually low sick leave rates. Amazingly, it turned out that inhaling dust from the yeast was having a beneficial effect on their immune systems! Researchers at the company conducted a pilot study to determine if its yeast culture was having a beneficial effect on the human immune system, and the results showed the factory workers had stronger immune systems with increased Natural Killer Cell Activity, higher levels of secretory IgA (sIgA) and lower levels of pro-inflammatory complexes compared to office workers who did not come in contact with the yeast culture. As a result, Epicor® was created, and studies are showing that it may be among the most effective natural immune supporters ever discovered.
In one research study, adults taking 500 mg of EpiCor® showed a rapid increase in immune activity — in just two hours. The number of white blood cells, immune-boosting granulocytes and NK cells all increased. Another human clinical trial showed that taking 500 mg of EpiCor® for 60 days increased levels of IgA — cells that help your gut form protection against unwanted invaders. In addition, the phytonutrients found in EpiCor® give it a higher ORAC value (a measure of antioxidants) than cranberries, blueberries, blackberries, red wine and pomegranate juice.
The Immunity Secrets of Mushrooms
While practitioners of Traditional Chinese Medicine have known for thousands of years about the immune supporting properties certain mushrooms possess, the idea of mushrooms as medicine is relatively new in the Western world. In just the last decade or so, scientific studies have validated much of what herbalists throughout Asia have long known about the benefits of consuming the healing compounds found in medicinal mushrooms.
Research has shown that a type of polysaccharides found in medicinal mushrooms, called beta-glucans, have the ability to modulate the immune system by lowering the over-active immune system, and stimulating the under-active immune system. When used for a period of time, beta-glucans build, strengthen and balance the immune system. Triterpenes help the body deal with stress by regulating and normalizing bodily functions, while also helping to increase oxygen uptake and supporting liver function.
There are approximately 10,000 identified species of mushrooms, of which about 300 are known to have medicinal properties. Of these medicinal mushroom species, a select few are known possess some of the most powerful healing compounds found in nature. Immunity Defense ULTRA™ contains a blend of some of the most powerful medicinal mushrooms in the world: shiitake, cordyceps, reishi and maitake.
Powerful Ingredients for Maximum Immune Support
Immunity Defense ULTRA™'s powerful combination of Epicor® and medicinal mushrooms is made even more effective at supporting immune function and overall health with the addition of potent doses of vitamin D3 and vitamin C. These essential nutrients have extensive research backing their ability to support optimal immune function and overall health.
Here's an overview of the powerful nutrients that make Immunity Defense ULTRA™ your absolute best choice for optimal immune system strength:
- EpiCor® Natural Yeast Extract (500 mg): You've probably heard about how fermented foods can be beneficial for your health. Epicor® is a specialty ingredient made with natural baker’s yeast by a proprietary fermentation process. 100% natural EpiCor® is the first and most clinically studied ingredient of this kind. Multiple published human clinical studies show EpiCor® supports a strong, healthy immune system in many important ways. Epicor® has been shown to rapidly boost immune activity in as little as two hours — and when taken daily, EpiCor® has been shown to be a safe and effective way to keep your immune system healthy throughout the entire year.
- Proprietary Mushrooms Immune Support Complex (100 mg): Immunity Defense ULTRA™ contains a blend of some of the most powerful medicinal mushrooms in the world: shiitake, cordyceps, reishi and maitake. The amazing health benefits of mushrooms are primarily attributed to two classes of nutrients: polysaccharides and triterpenes, which help to modulate the immune system while reducing the harmful effects of stress on the body.
- Vitamins D3 (1000 IU): Vitamin D has been shown to play a critical role in proper immune function, yet by some estimates, roughly 75% of adults aren't getting enough. There are only two ways to get vitamin D in the amounts you need: sun exposure and dietary supplements. You can’t get enough from food and you need to spend more time in the sun than most people ever do, so for most people supplemental vitamin D is a must. Immunity Defense ULTRA™ is made with the superior, 100% natural D3 form of vitamin D.
- Vitamin C (500 mg): Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that has been studied extensively for its ability to support immune health and function. Vitamins C and D work together to support the body’s immune system. Immunity Defense ULTRA™ contains vitamin C in the form of pure ascorbic acid from a non-GMO source. (The vitamin C found in most supplements is synthesized from genetically modified corn.)
If you're looking for the strongest possible day-to-day support for your immune system, then you owe it to yourself to give Immunity Defense ULTRA™ a try! It will provide you with both rapid and long-lasting benefits.
