Immitec - Immiflex 250mg and Vit D 25mcg (30 capsule)
What is ImmiFlex®?
ImmiFlex® contains 1,3/1,6 beta glucan (Wellmune WGP) that has a natural priming effect on the innate immune system, the body's first line of defence against infection. The type of glucan found in Immiflex® is derived from the cell wall of Baker's yeast and has been shown highly effective at optimising immune function in studies.
What about our Immune Systems?
When we are born we have an active innate immune system and an inactive acquired immune system. The acquired immune system develops as we are exposed to various immune challenges and provides the specific memory€� of our immune system. However, the innate immune cells act as our front line of defence to recognise and destroy the majority of intruders that can cause infection. As this front-line system evolved, it became very adept at killing yeast and fungi by recognising molecules that commonly occur on the cell surface of these challenges. The 1,3/1,6 beta glucan in ImmiFlex® is one such recognition molecule that on priming innate immune cells supports a rapid and effective immune response.
Why choose ImmiFlex®?
Not all beta glucan products have the same biological effects. The molecular structure of Wellmune WGP, with its specific beta 1,3/1,6 branch points and patented refinement process, is responsible for its unique biological activity. This beta glucan, which is the most active and best documented, is combined with Vitamin D in ImmiFlex® to provide well-rounded daily support for immune function. Widely regarded research into Vitamin D shows its crucial role in immune function with beneficial associations in the prevention of colds and flu, various cancers and autoimmune disease. Numerous studies have defined Wellmune WGP's activity at the cellular level.
Further research studies have compared Wellmune WGP to a placebo in subjects experiencing high levels of physical or lifestyle stress and demonstrated reduced cold and flu symptoms, as well as reduced fatigue, tension and increased mental clarity. Generally it is safe to take ImmiFlex® with other medications and supplements. If you have any concerns however, it is best to seek medical advice.
ImmiFlex® What About Yeast?
An important factor in the production process of Wellmune WGP, the active ingredient in ImmiFlex®, is that the protein elements of the cell (which may trigger yeast sensitivity in some people) are removed. This leaves just the active beta glucan. This is one of the factors that sets ImmiFlex® apart from most other beta glucan products. So there are no grounds for concern if you are worried about candida.

When Not to Take ImmiFlex®?
Most people will derive benefit from ImmiFlex® but there are some exceptions. ImmiFlex® is not suitable for anyone who has undergone an organ transplant. The same will apply to anyone who is being treated to suppress their immune system.
1,3/1,6 beta glucan are non-toxic and non-allergenic. Due to the patented refinement process they are suitable for daily use even by those with a previous history of yeast intolerance. Research in scientific journals demonstrates an excellent safety profile with no significant adverse effects reported.
What About Pregnancy?
The advice for pregnant or lactating mothers is to speak to your healthcare provider.
