INTRODUCTION TO acuMMUNE
An Immunosupportive/Anti-inflammatory Antioxidant Complex, acuMMUNE is a unique nutraceutical formulation designed to support effective immune function – including in particular interferon-mediated anti-viral mechanisms – while also helping to mitigate the excessive lung inflammation that can lead to the harsh symptoms associated with certain respiratory infections. Hence, acuMMUNE provides both immunosupportive and anti-inflammatory benefits.
The proprietary blend of the highly effective antioxidants and anti-inflammatories, combined with the most powerful antioxidant in nature, astaxanthin, creates a targeted physiological network designed to enhance an effective interferon response to many types of viruses; interferon works through multiple pathways to suppress intracellular viral replication. At the same time, these agents exert anti-inflammatory effects that can help to prevent or control the excessive lung inflammation that can make some infections deadly.
Beta-Glucan has been clinically proven to help stave off and control infections through enhancing the function of dendritic cells. These cells process antigens from infectious agents, which in turn recruit lymphocytes responsive to these antigens and create protective antibodies to eliminate virus-infected cells.
Zinc supplementation supports efficient multiplication of various immune cells, while also exerting protective anti-inflammatory effects. Several studies demonstrate that zinc supplementation can decrease infection risk in highly susceptible patients, such as young children and the elderly.
