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.
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!
