THE IMMUNE SYSTEM
The immune system consists of the innate immune system and the adaptive immune system. Most of the time, the innate immune system is more important in
protecting us against infection. It consists of specialized cells and enzymes that are always present and ready to fight microbes at the site of infection as soon as the threat appears. The adaptive immune system can remember specific pathogens so it can provide long-lasting defense and protection against recurrent infections. Vitamin D is crucial to activating all our immune defenses, and without sufficient intake of the vitamin, the immune system is less able to fight off infections in the body.
The vegan Vitamin D3 in Protect comes from organically grown lichen. Vitamin D3 is made in your skin when you get enough sunlight but also occurs in foods such as fatty fish, shrimps, egg and beef liver. In the northern part of the world, sun exposure is less, and therefore the skin does not produce enough Vitamin D3, which is why so many have low vitamin D levels.
The 1,3/1,6 Beta-glucans in Protect is a specialized and standardized form of beta-glucans derived from a proprietary strain of baker’s yeast. The 1,3/1,6 Beta-glucans prime innate immune cells, allowing them to react more effectively. 1,3/1,6 Beta-glucans are naturally found in foods such as baker’s yeast, shiitake mushrooms, and some cereal grain but these have different structures and in studies are only half as effective. Yeast 1,3/1,6 Beta-glucans are different from the 1,3/1,4 Beta-glucans in oats (used in Zinobiotic and LeanShake), which have very different functions in the body.
