Maintaining a healthy immune system helps the body defend itself when faced with challenges. Inflammation is a key part of the immune response by reacting to stimuli and responding accordingly. Increased cytokine production is part of a normal inflammatory response. However, consistently elevated cytokines in the absence of a trigger can lead to an overactivated immune response.*
In cell culture studies, Immuplex® was shown to affect cytokine production, including IL-8, IL-10, TNFα, and IFNy, indicating its role in mediating T-lymphocyte inflammation.1
Immuplex® contains several micronutrients that function to support the body’s normal inflammatory response.* They also work synergistically in the immune response, and many are critical for antibody production.
These micronutrients include zinc, selenium, vitamin C and vitamin E. They exhibit antioxidant properties which may help support oxidant-mediated inflammation2-3 and are essential players in a healthy immune system response.4-6
Vitamins B6, E, A, and C — also found in Immuplex® — may support healthy white blood cell function. White blood cells are vital components of the immune system.7,8
This information is organized in the table below.
Immuplex® provides daily support for a healthy immune system response with a blend of essential micronutrients and minerals, and with specialized protein extracts.*
Congaplex® is used for targeted immune system support and provides a variety of whole food-based ingredients.*
Epimune Complex is a vegan supplement designed to provide daily support and help the immune system stand up to challenges.*
Selenium, an essential nutrient, provides an antioxidant function as an essential part of antioxidant enzymes in the body.9,10 Moreover, selenium plays a critical role in various physiological processes including the regulation of immune cell functions11 and healthy inflammatory processes.12 Selenium has been shown to play an important role in many selenoproteins that appear to support the body’s ability to resist physiological stress.13
Zinc is an essential micronutrient for basic cell activities and has a key role in aspects of healthy immune function14 and healthy inflammatory response in the body15. In particular, zinc plays a role in both innate and adaptive immune responses, which has been extensively reviewed and studied.16-20
Antioxidant vitamin E — known to be one of the most effective nutrients in the modulation of the immune system21 — supports T cells, monocytes, and cytokine production in the body.22,23
