This product provides active plant extracts that help enhance natural immunity and support DNA repair, a natural process that is crucial for protecting cells against the effects of environmental and metabolic stress. Cells and tissues are vulnerable to daily damage from chronic stress associated with lifestyle, environmental pollution, illness, medications, metabolic activity, and the aging process. The ability of the immune system to mount an appropriate and effective defense as well as repair damage that may occur is critical to staying healthy. The botanical extracts that make up this formula work together to support the immune system and cellular repair processes.†
• AC-11 : This unique water-soluble plant extract is obtained from the inner and outer bark of Uncaria tomentosa,
commonly called Cat’s Claw. It simultaneously enhances natural processes involved in the up-regulation of DNA repair and immune cell responsiveness. AC-11® differs from all other Cat’s Claw products in that it is 100% water-soluble, and therefore 100% bioavailable for absorption while passing through the gastro-intestinal tract. Among its numerous actions, AC-11® turns off synthesis of certain inflammatory compounds, exerts antioxidant activity that improves resistance to DNA damage, and enhances natural DNA repair capacity. AC-11® has a high level of safety, as compounds that may contribute to gastrointestinal irritation or toxicity are removed while beneficial compounds called carboxy alkyl esters (or CAEs) are retained.†
• Larch arabinogalactan: Larch arabinogalactan (Larix occidentalis), commonly known as the larch tree, contains a natural polysaccharide (arabinogalactan) that stimulates beneficial immune cells (macrophages and natural killer cells) and cytokines (part of the body’s natural defense system). Arabinogalactan enhances the immune system by blocking viruses and bacteria from attaching to cell membranes, stimulating natural killer cell activity, and increasing the number of immune cells, particularly macrophages, present in the blood system. Arabinogalactan may also have important benefits for the colon as it may act as a prebiotic, a nutritional agent that supports the growth of beneficial bacteria including bifidum and lactobacillus.†
