- Supports the immune system.
- Stimulates the activity of macrophages, T-cells and natural killer cells.
- Acts as an antioxidant.
How It Works:
This unique formula contains the polysaccharides beta 1,3 glucans and arabinogalactan. These are complemented by reishi and maitake mushrooms that are known to be rich in long-chain polysaccharides. Long-chain polysaccharides stimulate immune cells, including macrophages, T-cells and natural killer cells. This tricks the body into thinking it is being invaded. This unique blend helps to maintain healthy defense reactions.
Beta-glucans, arabinogalactan, colostrum, cordyceps mycelia, reishi mushroom mycelia and maitake whole mushroom.
For maintenance, take 1 capsule between meals two or three times daily. For periods of immune system stress, take 6–10 capsules daily.
IMMUNE STIMULATOR [1839-3] (90)
This excellent formula has been meticulously designed to promote macrophage activity in your body, leading to a chain reaction of immune activity, which will strengthen your entire system against enemy attack.
Beta Glucans 1/3 and 1/6 are long-chain polysaccharides that stimulate the immune system into action. Because they resemble bacteria, beta glucans are able to trick the body into an immune response, triggering an increase in the production of macrophages, T-cells, B-cells, natural killer cells, cytokines and antibodies.
Arabinogalactan stimulates natural killer cell and macrophage activity. It increases the production of essential nutrients for organisms beneficial to the gastrointestinal tract. These nutrients, principally butyrate and propionate, decrease the generation and absorption of ammonia, a toxic compound. Arabinogalactan also helps increase Bifidobacteria and Lactobacillus flora, two beneficial types of bacteria.
Colostrum is the first milk produced by mammals before the onset of lactation. This substance is rich in protein and immune-protecting transfer factors. Studies show that colostrum supports the immune system of the newborn, and it can also improve health later in life. It helps increase the number immunoglobulin proteins in the intestinal tract to fight foreign microorganisms. Reishi Mushroom and Maitake Mushroom are both from the same family (polyporaceae), and their similar polysaccharide content is thought to boost immune activity, increase the activation of natural killer cells and activate macrophages.
Cordyceps is a potent antioxidant that protects the genes by promoting the repair of DNA. Studies show that it may help the body suppress tumor cells, slowing their proliferation. Cordyceps increases T-cell and B-cell activity. These two groups kill foreign invaders.
For maintenance, take 1 capsule between meals two or three times daily.
For periods of immune-system stress, take 6-10 capsules daily.
Those with any autoimmune conditions should seek advice from a health care practitioner before using this product.
STEVEN HORNE’S point of view about this product:
Nature’s Immune Stimulator is a powerful new ally in keeping our immune systems healthy. It contains beta-glucan, a substance 200 times more effective at stimulating the immune system than echinacea. Beta-glucan increases general immunity and strengthens resistance to infection by activating immune cells. Its primary action is on macrophages, which devour invading pathogens of all kinds.
The other important function of Beta-glucan is to get the various types of cells talking to each other to help create rapid activation of the immune response. Beta-3 talks directly to the immune cells, which rapidly turns those cells into effective war machines. This decreases the time lapse between the enemy’s attack and the immune system’s response. Faster battle-ready troops means the battle may be won more easily and quickly.
Nature’s Immune Stimulator also contains Arabinogalactan, a substance that increases white blood cell production and activity. Another ingredient is colostrum, a substance produced in mammals during the first 24-48 hours of nursing to nourish and protect the newborn infant. Human and animal studies have shown that colostrum can enhance the immune system, protect against infectious agents that enter through the digestive system, and aid in tissue repair, while promoting general health and healing of the body.
Colostrum has been reported to aid a wide variety of conditions, including lower GI disorders like Crohn’s disease, diverticulitis and irritable bowel syndrome; as well as asthma, allergies, heart disease and cancer.
Cordyeeps is a powerful fungi that increases production of those all-important T-cells and B-cells. It also protects genes by helping to repair DNA. Studies show that Cordyeeps may even help the body to suppress tumor cells and slow them down.
Reishi and Maitake mushrooms both help to activate macrophages. Reishi increases natural killer cell activity, restores normal T-cell function, and increases interferon production. Recently, studies of Reishi against five pathogenic viruses have shown Reishi to be an effective antiviral agent. Maitake, another medicinal mushroom, which has been used for centuries to prevent cancer, contains the immuno-modulator beta-D-glucans, one of the most powerful polysaccharides studied in enhancing immune activity.
Nature’s Immune Stimulator should be a valuable supplement for helping the body overcome cancers, heart disease, AIDS, gastrointestinal conditions and any other immune challenge, including the common cold. Since the molecule of beta-glucan is too large to be readily absorbed into the bloodstream, it has to go beyond the stomach to the small intestines, then to the lymphatic system.
It is important to always take this product on an empty stomach. Also, any supplements that contain fiber should not be taken at the same time as Nature’s Immune Stimulator, as they will inhibit its ability to get past the first stages of the digestive system. Night time is a good time to take this product.
For maintenance: take 2 capsules at night or 1 capsule between meals two or three times daily.
For times of immune system stress, overcoming illness and chronic conditions, take 6-10 capsules daily.
Immune Stimulator can be helpful for problems as simple as warding off a cold in the early stages or as difficult as dealing with serous infections such as pneumonia. Use it to strengthen a weakened immune system by taking 1 capsule between meals two or three times daily.
