The ability of the immune system to recognize friend from foe and respond with an appropriate and effective defense is critical to optimal health. The body's inflammatory response and antioxidant defense mechanisms are also vital to wellness and a healthy immune system. Inflammation is a normal response after exposure to allergens or irritants. However, if inflammation is not properly regulated, it can produce damage to tissues and slow down the body's normal healing and repair processes. Environmental and metabolic stressors can also promote inflammation and generate potentially damaging free radicals that can overwhelm the body's antioxidant defenses. HistaPlus Formula provides a natural approach to support immune system function by boosting antioxidant activity, favorably modulating inflammatory responses, and enhancing immune responsiveness.†
- Quercetin: Quercetin is a potent, water-soluble bioflavonoid compound found in kale, onions, apples, green tea, and black tea. Bioflavonoids are a diverse group of structurally similar plant compounds with extremely valuable antioxidant activity and other important functions. Quercetin has potent antioxidant activity and helps stabilize cell membranes, which protects cells and tissues against the damaging effects of free radicals and excessive inflammation. It has also been shown to support histamine metabolism and modulate the activity and production of certain inflammation-promoting compounds.†
- Beta-Glucan: Beta-Glucan is a type of soluble dietary fiber that is found in baker's yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae), oats and barley fiber, and mushrooms. Research suggests that the type of beta-glucan found in yeast, seaweed, and mushrooms can help regulate a balance between Th1 and Th2 immune responses that help protect the body when exposed to potentially harmful pathogens and promote immune tolerance to dietary and environmental allergens. Beta-glucan supports immune function through the enhancement of beneficial immune cells such as monocytes, macrophages, and natural killer cells. It may also assist a healthy immune response to a wide spectrum of pathogens, including fungal (Candida albicans), Gram-positive (Staphylococcus aureus), and Gram-negative (Escherichia coli) microorganisms. This product provides beta-glucan from purified Saccharomyces cerevisiae.†
