Immune Defense by Vibrant Health Inc. is an immune support formula that supplies specific antibodies. Immune Defense is the first natural product to deliver such a high level of immunoglobulins.
Approximately 80% of all disease-causing germs enter the body through mucosal tissue, nose or mouth. The lining of the gastrointestinal (G.I.) tract is the largest mucosal surface, in other words, your stomach. Immune cells located in the stomach and intestines, therefore, produce immunoglobulins to help protect us against potential infections that might arise from unsavory organisms and toxins that may inadvertently arrive there with food, drink or through casual contact with people. Immunoglobulins are antibodies, specialized proteins that either stop the invader or identify it so other members of the immune system can destroy it. Immunoglobulin of bovine origin contains antibodies supplement the human body's own natural output of immunoglobulins by immune cells lining the G.I. tract. Conservation of immune resources in the G.I. tract permits more immune resources to be available elsewhere in the body.*
Immune Defense also contains transferrin, endotoxin-binding proteins and other acute phase proteins that provide added immune support. Larch arabinogalactans and beta glucans activate macrophages and NK cells, and trigger cell-to-cell messengers, thereby stimulating immune activity deep within the body.* RMA extract provides sulfated polysaccharides that contribute targeted immune support.*
