Research has established that many nutrients play an integral role in the functioning of the immune system. The immune system is designed to defend against millions of bacteria, microbes, toxins, viruses and parasites that we encounter on a daily basis. It is a complex structure, needing a multifactorial approach to function efficiently. Solgar has combined six key nutrients with a berry blend to provide this comprehensive formula.
Beta 1, 3 Glucans: Beta 1, 3 Glucans is derived from the cell wall of fungi and yeasts and is known to stimulate macrophage activation, which in turn stimulates the immune system to act against pathogenic viruses, fungi and parasites. Studies show that bone marrow production is also enhanced by Beta 1, 3 Glucans.
Vitamin C as Ester-C? Ester-C is made using a proprietary manufacturing process that results in a pH neutral product, which contains the naturally occurring vitamin C metabolites such as threonate. This metabolite activities the vitamin C molecules making it easier for the body to transport them from cell to cell. Studies show Ester-C intake vitamin C and white blood cell levels in the body and the presence of the metabolite, threonate may contribute to this increase in levels and retention of vitamin C by the cells.
Berry Blend: Elderberry extract, blueberry extract and acai powder have all demonstrated significant antioxidant activity. Berries contain several principal constituents, including polyphenols, carotenoids, anthocyanins, vitamin C and chlorogenic acid. In research, berries have been proven to have anti-viral, anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties.
Zinc:Adequate zinc levels are vital for the functioning of the immune system. Even a slight deficiency of Zinc has the ability to cause a reduction in T-Cell function and T-Cell numbers in the body, reducing the ability to ward off infection.
Selenium: Research demonstrates that low selenium status is associated with weakened function of the thymus (the master gland of immunity) and suppressed white blood-cell activity.
Copper: Copper is a component of the enzyme superoxide dismutase, which is a powerful antioxidant produced to protect against free radical damage. It is involved in the maintenance of both innate and acquired branches of immunity.
Vitamin D3: Almost all cells of the immune system have vitamin D receptors, suggesting that they require vitamin D to function effectively. Vitamin D is also involved in the production of anti-microbial proteins that fight viruses, bacteria and fungi. In addition, T-Cells (which destroy pathogens, viruses and bacteria) require vitamin D in order to become active.
