The immune system operates with two arms: the innate and adaptive branches. The innate immune response is rapid and can occur within 4 hours of immune activation. However, innate immune reactions are not very specific and can affect our own tissue in the body! MegaMune™ is formulated with immune soothing ingredients to help maintain a healthy immune response.** For example, green tea extract promotes T-regulatory cells that help calm and balance the immune system.8 Other synergistic ingredients like selenium, sulforaphane, cranberry polyphenols, and pomegranate polyphenols can support the body’s natural detoxification process.9-12
The adaptive immune response, on the other hand, is slower to respond. However, when it is activated, it is extremely precise and thus much gentler on host tissues. MegaMune™ supports the adaptive immune response by promoting T-helper cell production, such as CD4+ and CD8+ cells.
The key to maintaining a healthy immune response is dictated by the gut microbiome which helps balance both adaptive and innate immunity. In fact, the gut is home to about 70% of immune cells and acts as the mother board of the entire immune system. The combination of green tea extract and fruit polyphenols were added to MegaMune™ in order to enhance microbial diversity within the powerful gut microbiome.
MegaMune™ provides robust immune support that targets the immune system both on the cellular level and within the microbiome to provide a solid immune foundation. Take MegaMune™ any time of the year to keep your body vibrant and strong no matter what the outside world throws at you!
