Immune Shield (30 Packets)
A powerful, evidence-based immune-protecting formula in convenient daily packets.
Each daily packet contains:
Contains three compatible microbial strains with clinically documented activity and implantation ability. Microencapsulation technology is used to coat the fragile bacteria with vegetable derived fatty acids, thus helping to protect the microorganisms from destruction by stomach acid and thereby enhance viability. This process also dramatically increases shelflife at room temperature so that refrigeration is not required. SapphireDophilus is a good choice for helping to reestablish a healthy balance of lactic acid bacteria diminished by stress, infection, medication, or other factors.
This Ayurvedic herb exerts a neuroprotective effect. This may be due to its antioxidant action and the ability to decrease cortisol release induced by physiological stress. Ashwagandha may also help increase cortical cholinergic activity thus contributing to an enhancement of memory and cognition.
Beta Glutan & Quercetin
Quercetin, a potent antioxidant bioflavonoid, and β-(1→3), β-(1→6) beta-glucan, a soluble dietary fiber, have complementary actions that favorably modulate the immune system. Their combined effects may be especially helpful in regulating the immune response during exposure to allergenic substances or irritants as they may assist in modulating inflammation, maintaining serum IgE levels in the normal range, and stabilizing mast cells and basophils.
Coenzyme Q10 Ubiquinol
Studies now show that the body’s ability to reduce the ubiquinone form of CoQ10 to the powerful antioxidant ubiquinol declines with age and is markedly compromised in certain chronic diseases. Initial studies suggest ubiquinol has approximately twice the bioavailability of ubiquinone, however, further studies are needed to compare differences between these forms.
ImmunoPhire with AC-11®
Although many nutrients and phytochemicals have positive effects on immune function, we find the combination of AC-11® and Larch arabinogalactan offers a uniquely balanced approach that not only enhances immune responsiveness but also promotes the body's natural DNA repair capacity. AC-11® is a patented water-soluble extract of Uncaria tomentosa with numerous and varied beneficial effects on immune cells. Its ability to enhance natural DNA enzymatic repair mechanisms helps counteract cell damage caused by oxidative stress resulting from environmental influences and aging. Arabinogalactan polysaccharides derived from the larch tree stimulate certain beneficial immune cells (macrophages and natural killer cells) and cytokines (part of the body's natural defense system) resulting in a potent immunomodulating effect.
