Immune Defense supplies specific antibodies that target 26 human pathogens. It is the first natural product to deliver such a high level of immunoglobulins.
Almost 80% of all disease-causing microbes enter the body through mucosal tissue. The largest mucosal surface is the lining of the gastrointestinal (G.I.) tract. Immune cells located in the digestive tract walls, 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 or drink.*
Immunoglobulins are antibodies, that is, specialized proteins that either stop the invader or identify it so other members of the immune system can destroy it. Immunoglobulins from the eggs of chickens inoculated with human pathogens contain antibodies that supplement the human body’s own natural output of immunoglobulins generated 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.*
The antibodies are provided by spray-dried egg yolk from hens inoculated against 26 known human pathogens. Antibodies (immunoglobulins) produced by the hens are passed to and concentrated in their unfertilized eggs. Production of hyperimmune egg immunoglobulins is, therefore humane. No animals are harmed or destroyed in the process. 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.*
