About PureDefense w/NAC:
*Enhances first-line immune defense and upper respiratory support
Natural killer cells are part of the body’s innate, or first-line, immune
response. They respond more quickly than the adaptive immune system
comprised of B cells and T cells. Once activated, natural killer cell
activity peaks in as quickly as several hours, providing rapid support and
wide-range immune defense.
EpiCor® is a fermentate of Saccharomyces cerevisiae containing various
bioactive metabolites. These nutrient metabolites are produced in a
specialized fermentation process and enhance immune cell production. In one
cellular study, EpiCor® promoted natural killer cell activation, as well as
that of B cells and T cells. In two randomized, double blind,
placebo-controlled trials, EpiCor® provided statistically significant
support for upper respiratory tract health and overall immune health. A
separate open label, in-house trial indicated a strong potential for EpiCor®
supplementation to enhance secretory IgA levels after 30 days. These various
actions demonstrate the ability of EpiCor® to address both innate and
adaptive immune responses.
NAC (n-acetyl-l-cysteine) promotes endogenous glutathione production for
antioxidant protection and provides lung defense mechanisms for healthy
respiratory function. In a randomized double blind trial involving mostly
older individuals, NAC supported respiratory health through the winter
Quercetin and elderberry provide flavonoids that offer additional support
for immune and respiratory function while vitamin C, vitamin D and zinc play
important roles in immune cell activation.
PureDefense w/NAC supports overall immune defense and provides enhanced
support for upper respiratory health
