Immuno-Care is the only one-a-day supplement of plant sterols synergistically formulated with antioxidants and essential fatty acids to positively balance and support your immune system. Immuno-Care from Celt Naturals is made from 100% natural sources, and enteric coated to ensure that the active ingredients make it through the stomach acids intact to go where they are needed.
Many people's immune systems are over-burdened and don't always react properly. They may be over-responding to some relatively harmless things, such as mild allergies or food intolerances, or under-responding to other potential threats, which may lead to serious health problems and more difficult recoveries. That's why Immuno-Care was designed -- to BALANCE the immune system.
This product has been marketed as Sterol 117 in some markets (including the USA).
ImmunoCare is designed to modulate the immune system contains three main classes of ingredients:
Plant Sterols: Phytosterols have biomedical effects on animals and humans; they have been shown to modulate the immune system. All plants have them in small amounts, but unless one eats completely organic food, it's difficult to get a sufficient amount in today's diet, so supplementation is required. Immuno-Care contains 300mg of plant sterols, the amount research has shown to be an optimum daily dose, and an essential part of the human diet. It's extracted from soy (not from wood pulp, as some plant sterol products are), and produced in North America.
Enzogenol: A highly active, broad spectrum mixture of anti-inflammatory plant compounds such as proanthocyanidins and flavonoids which actively scavenge free radicals. This is a 100% natural antioxidant extracted from the bark of Pinus radiata trees from unpolluted, sustainable forest plantations in New Zealand, using a pure water extraction method which does not harm the environment or leave harmful residues in the product.
Cellasate: This proprietary blend of fruit and essential fatty acids from oil-producing seeds was specifically designed to increase the bioavailability and absorption of the other nutrients contained in Celt Naturals Immuno-Care at the cellular level.
Collectively, they all have a strong influence in balancing the immune system, especially in people with inflammatory conditions such as allergies and immune disorders (including Seasonal Allergies, Fibromyalgia, and Joint Pain & Stiffness) and Coughing & Wheezing, and Chronic Colds & Flu, and can also reduce the symptoms of an enlarged prostate (this is the reason it was originally developed) and may also be able to help manage High Cholesterol by reducing LDL and increasing HDL levels.
