“A healthy immune system is very important and it is the foundation of overall well-being. Well-being integrates physical and mental health, resulting in more holistic approaches to disease prevention and health promotion.”
The immune system is our body’s natural defense system. It works 24 hours every day, keeps us protected from disease caused by bacteria, viruses and toxins, and helps remove foreign bodies and malignant cells from our system.
The immune system can be classified into innate and the adaptive immune system. The innate immune system is the body’s first line of defense. It can quickly recognize, target and destroy infections. Innate immune response is nonspecific but it has an important role in controlling infections during the first 7 days after an infection. The main cells types of innate immune system include macrophages, neutrophils, natural killer cells etc. In contrast, the adaptive immune response is highly specific but is slower as it needs time to adapt to recognize them. The adaptive immune system remembers what the pathogen looks like after the first encounter and can response more accurately next time. Major cell types of the adaptive immune system include T cells and B cells.
The Missing Nutrient in the Modern World
However, in the modern world, the way we live-our unhealthy eating habits and stressful lifestyles; the over-sanitized environment with a lot of antiseptics, disinfectants being used and food are treated with fungicides, causing our immune system less active and less able to neutralize new and unexpected threats. The hygiene-obsessed environment had also left immune system to be off-balance and more prone to react hyperactively to even harmless substance, which leads to allergic issues.
In the older days, the spots on our apples –the traces of yeast and molds that used to be on almost all our foods – are now known to be as important for our health as the apples themselves. These microorganisms contain compounds in their cell walls known as 1-3, 1-6 beta glucans. We now know that these compounds are critically important in priming a part of our immune system known as the innate immune system – but we no longer have many of them in our diet.
The Powerful Immune Primer to Activate the Pathogen Killing
Among all the natural nutrients known to activate the innate immune system, the best documented and most effective are the 1-3, 1-6 beta glucans, generally derived from baker’s yeast. Wellmune®, a yeast beta 1,3-1,6 glucan, patented for its extraction process and the proprietary strain of baker’s yeast, is clinically proven to enhance the immune system. Wellmune® primes the neutrophils, which are the most abundant immune cells in the body. It makes them active and ready to work faster to kill foreign pathogens.
Once Wellmune® ingested, it is taken up by one of the innate immune cells- macrophages and brought to immune organs located throughout the body such as spleen, thymus, lymph nodes. Wellmune® is then broken down into smaller fragments and bind to neutrophils via CR3 receptor. By taking Wellmune®, the neutrophils are provided with the missing element they need to trigger the neutrophil’s natural killing mechanism.
For a neutrophil to kill a pathogen – the CR3 receptor (Complement Receptor 3) must be occupied by both complement - a blood protein and beta glucan.
The CR3 receptor is occupied naturally by molds and yeasts . But there are other threats, including bacteria, viruses and cancer, where beta glucan is not present.
Thus, by taking Wellmune®, the neutrophils are provided with the missing element they need to trigger the neutrophil’s natural killing mechanism.
KORDEL'S BEWELL is made with Wellmune®, presented in a convenient form-peppermint drop. Clinical researches have demonstrated consistent results across a broad range of consumers including children, older adults, athletes and individuals experiencing stress in enhancing immune system to combat cold and relieves symptoms related to cold, such as cough, sneezing, running nose and throat irritation. It gives the immediate throat soothing effect as well.
Wellmune® reduced by 71% the number of adults reporting URTI symptoms.
Participants taking Wellmune® reported a 34% improvement in POMS health scores (mood).
