Solgar Beta Glucans & Elderberry Immune+ Complex, containing Ester-C®, zinc and vitamin D
Research has established that many nutrients play an integral role in the functioning of the immune system. The immune system is designed to defend against millions of bacteria, microbes, toxins, viruses and parasites that we encounter on a daily basis. It is a complex structure, needing a multifactorial approach to function efficiently. In this formulation, Solgar has combined six key nutrients with berry blend to provide this comprehensive formula.
+Vitamins C and D, and Zinc and Copper contribute to the normal function of the immune system. Ester-C® is a trademark of The Ester C Company. Manufactured under U.S. Patent No's. 6,197,813 and 6,878,744 and corresponding foreign patents.
As a food supplement for adults, two (2) vegetable capsules daily, preferably at mealtime, or as directed by a healthcare practitioner. Do not exceed directions for use.

BETA 1,3 GLUCANS:
Beta 1,3 Glucans is derived from the cell wall of fungi and yeasts and is known to stimulate macrophage activation, which in turn stimulates the immune system to act against pathogenic viruses, fungi and parasites. Studies show that bone marrow production is also enhanced by Beta 1,3 Glucans.
VITAMIN C AS ESTER-C:
Studies show Ester-C intake increases Vitamin C and white blood cell levels in the body.
Elderberry extract, blueberry extract and acai powder have all demonstrated significant antioxidant activity. In research, berries have been proven to have anti-viral, anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties.
Adequate zinc levels are vital for the functioning of the immune system. Even a slight deficiency of zinc reduces the ability to ward off infection.
Research demonstrates that low selenium status is associated with weakened function of the thymus (the master gland of immunity) and suppressed white blood-cell activity.
Copper is a component of the enzyme superoxide dismutase, which is a powerful antioxidant, produced to protect against free radical damage. It is involved in the maintenance of both innate and acquired brances of immunity.
Almost all cells of the immune system have Vitamin D receptors, suggesting that they require vitamin D to function effectively. Vitamin D is also involved in the production of anti-microbial proteins that fight viruses, bacteria and fungi. In addition, T-cells (which destroy pathogens, viruses and bacteria) require Vitamin D in order to become active.
