Xymogen’s “Immune Essentials” formula is available in a 45-capsule size and helps to support the body’s natural defenses. Against infection and illness. It features beta 1,3/1,6 glucan – along with olive leaf extract and high potency vitamin C in the form of ascorbic acid. Designers specifically created this formula to provide early and immediate support when needed for short-term use.”
Alternatively, we do recommend consulting with a healthcare practitioner or professional for prolonged use, or if you are currently on any other sort of medication. Discuss potential interactions with olive leaf extract and beta-glucan. The dosage is a recommended 3 capsules, providing 1000 mg vitamin C (ascorbic acid), 1 g olive leaf extract at 20% oleuropein, and beta-glucan derived from baker’s yeast (69% glucose-polysaccharides).
This product is completely free of wheat, gluten, yeast, soy, animal products, dairy products, fish, shellfish, peanuts, tree nuts, eggs, GMOs, artificial colors, flavorings, or preservatives.
At the earliest signs of illness or stress on the immune system, Immune Essentials provides antioxidant support and stimulates immune function, making it the best choice to employ.
More specifically, each of the three ingredients has documented benefits when it comes to protecting against illness.
Beta glucan (derived from Saccharomyces cerevisiae)
A high-quality form of 1,3/1,6 beta-glucan. The most effective form for supplementing with beta-glucan is one that does not contain any impurities. We removed mannan, a potential trigger for cytokines, which sometimes exists in yeasts and whole glucan particle supplements.
Research clearly shows that orally consumed beta-glucan is processed by macrophages within the body – which is then degraded into particles that are bound to neutrophils. This “primes” them and helps enhance their ability to more effectively reduce or eliminate pathogens during cases of illness (viral or bacterial). A 12-week study of 1,3/1,6 beta-glucan from S. cerevisiae confirmed that it was safe to use long-term, and well tolerated. It clearly supports immune system function.
Olive Leaf Extract
Olive leaf extract possesses antioxidant and anti-viral/anti-bacterial properties against various pathogens and microbes, and it is well known for this.
Stimulation of “phagocytosis” can aid the immune system by countering harmful invaders and preventing enzyme production.
Oleuropein is known as the “glycoside” that was isolated from olive leaf extract and is the most active component contained in an olive leaf. The greater the concentration of oleuropein content, the greater the inhibition of microbial replication from pathogens.
Xymogen standardizes its olive leaf extract to contain 20% oleuropein, whereas most olive leaf extract formulas concentrate around 6% oleuropein.
Vitamin C (in the form of ascorbic acid)
For decades, scientists have extensively recorded vitamin C’s vital role as an antioxidant supporting the immune system. Without a doubt When sick or stressed, our body needs more vitamin C to fill cells. Illness can deplete it rapidly. Studies show vitamin C reduces illness symptoms and boosts immunity in stressed, fatigued, or sick individuals.
