Product Notes:

We all know that to keep our immune system strong and healthy, we need to eat a balanced diet with lots of fruit and vegetables, get a full night’s sleep, drink water, and avoid chronic stress. But sometimes that’s not enough, and we need extra support. Purica's Mature Immune Defense Probiotic can help, and makes a great complement to Purica's other immunity formulations such as Complete 360 and Immune 7.

Sourcing

Floradapt and KABP are trademarks of Kaneka Corporation, which has formed a partnership with Purica to offer this product in the Canadian market. Kaneka sources its clinical strains of probiotics from healthy people in more rural and remote parts of the world, isolates and purifies them, and conducts both animal and human clinical tests to establish their safety and efficacy and how well they can survive transit through the gastrointestinal tract when ingested to get to where they're needed. The combination of these two particular strains has been found to help improve elderly people's general health and enhance their systemic immunity*, and also to enhance the production of the desired antibodies after an influenza vaccination.

* Systemic immunity involves the recruitment of immune cells (T-cells, as an example) to areas of need in the body (lungs, lymphatic tissue, liver, etc.), in order to prevent pathogenic organisms from invading the host and eradicating them in infected tissues.
