Immune Plus™Immune and Lymph Support

www.myvitaminresource.com


Immune Plus™ is our top supplement to naturally support the lymph system, a key part of the immune system. A sluggish lymph is noted by pressure or tension build-up in the shoulder area with extra mucous in the morning, extra mucous after large meals or dairy consumption, and a reduction in the normal drainage of sinus and ear structures. Since immune cells must travel through the lymph system as part of normal function, a sluggish lymph may reduce their rate of progress.

Immune Plus™ consists of the soluble fiber arabinogalactan and bioactive flavonoids. Arabinogalactan helps activate macrophages to assist in lymph movement. It has been shown to support both the innate immune system and adaptive immune system.*

Arabinogalactan

Immune Plus™ contains arabinogalactan, a branched carbohydrate extracted from the heartwood of larch trees (pine family). Immune Plus™ is a special preparation of low-molecular weight and high-molecular weight arabinogalactan, accounting for its varied types of immune support. It includes bioactive polyphenol flavonoids, and thus has antioxidant capacity.

Arabinogalactan is composed of galactose and arabinose molecules. Galactose is an important glyconutrient, required for the proper structure of antibodies.*

Immune Activity

When we breathe in or swallow germs from air particles or food, the germs stick to mucous membranes in the respiratory tract or digestive tract and trigger an immune response. If the immune system is energized and balanced, then you remain healthy.*

If you are run down and your immune system is de-energized, the first immune responders, like natural killer (NK) cells, struggle and germs flourish. A stagnant lymph system often underlies this inefficient, fatigued immune system. Healthy natural killer cells are at the front lines of defense helping to stop germs from gaining a stronghold.*

Arabinogalactan has been shown to support innate immune system function. This includes enhancing the healthy activity of NK cells, cytokines, and macrophages. Arabinogalactan also supports adaptive immune function by promoting T cell activity and antibody production.*

Lymph System

The lymphatic system is a network of vessels and capillaries, like the circulatory system. The digestive tract, respiratory and immune system depend heavily on the lymph system to move fluids in and out of tissues. Lymphatic fluid management occurs as a result of muscle movement and barometric pressure.*

Many things increase the burden on the lymphatic system, like food and environmental allergies, infections, sedentary lifestyle, toxins, high fat meals, and lack of sleep. Germs that we come in contact with adhere to the respiratory tract or digestive tract lining which challenges the immune and lymphatic system. If these systems are overloaded and stagnant, like a kitchen sink filled with dirty dishes and clogged plumbing, this contributes to lymphatic congestion and a less than efficient immune system.*

Arabinogalactan helps support lymphatic function and efficiency. It has an affinity for the gut, respiratory tract, and immune system to keep the lymph fluids moving well.*

Children’s Immunity

Immune Plus™ is an excellent immune supplement for children. It is helpful for moving congestion in the sinuses, ears, and neck. As a soluble fiber, it is a safe immune supplement for infants and children. It may be taken daily to naturally strengthen the immune response.*

Immune Plus™ comes in both a capsule and powder option. The powder is easy to mix into any liquid and has a mild taste, making it an easy supplement to give to infants or children.
