Innate Immune Support is designed to promote cell- mediated immune response, including NK cell and macrophage activity.
Innate Immune Support may be indicated for enhancement of natural defenses and mucosal health. Astragalus contains a variety of active constituents, including saponins and flavonoids, that contribute to its long tradition of immune and cytokine balance support.
- In vitro and animal studies suggest that astragalus supports NK cell activity, as well as IgA and IgG levels in serum, key antibodies that play a critical role in mucosal immune defense.
- The formula also includes clinically researched andrographis extract standardized for andrographolide and other bioactive diterpene lactones.
- Each batch is biologically standardized using the lipoxygenase inhibition assay to ensure efficacy.
- In a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study, supplementation with 200 mg of AP-Bio® Andrographis for five days promoted immune function and supported respiratory comfort.
- In vitro assays suggest it helps modulate IL-1, IL-6 and MCP-1 to support macrophage function.
- Reishi mushroom offers a rich source of polysaccharides to promote cell-mediated immunity. The formula includes both reishi mushroom extract and a unique, highly-purified, reishi mushroom-derived beta 1,3/1,6-D glucan extract.
