Entrust the protection of your immune system to ImmunoComplex. The only formulation of its kind, ImmunoComplex® contains some of the world’s most-researched immune health ingredients, including: AHCC®, a hybridized medicinal mushroom extract supported by over 20 published clinical studies.*
AHCC significantly increases the activity of certain white blood cells, including NK cells, DC cells, T-cells and macrophages.*
ImmunoComplex contains AP-Bio™ andrographis extract, clinically demonstrated to improve the body’s response to immune challenges, in addition to vitamins and minerals necessary for healthy immunity but frequently deficient in the diet, including highly absorbable forms of vitamin C (Fast-C™), vitamin D (D3), and zinc (OptiZinc®).*
AHCC® is a patented, low-molecular weight medicinal mushroom extract developed from the mycelia (or underground portion) of a particular subspecies of Lentinula edodes. Supported by more than 20 human clinical studies, AHCC prompts an early activation of the immune system.* It works by enhancing the production of cytokines (immune-signaling molecules) and increasing the activity of certain white blood cells, including NK cells, DC cells, T-cells, and macrophages.*
Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, is a water-soluble vitamin, meaning it dissolves in water rather than fat. Because water-soluble vitamins are not stored in the body, they need to be replaced daily. Vitamin C contributes to the health of the body by increasing its antioxidant, immune-stimulating, and detoxification powers.* Fast-C™ is a buffered, rapidly absorbed, better-retained form of vitamin C than regular ascorbic acid.
Vitamin D is often called the “sunshine vitamin” because the body can synthesize it when sunlight exposure is adequate. However, researchers have discovered that vitamin D insufficiency is surprisingly common, affecting as much as 70 percent of the population. Vitamin D is a great multi-tasker: it strengthens bone by aiding calcium absorption, modulates immune function, protects prostate cells, and boosts brain chemicals needed for positive mood.* Vitamin D3 is better absorbed than vitamin D2.*
Andrographis paniculata is a flowering herb native to India and Sri Lanka that has long been used in Ayurvedic medicine to support immunity.* AP-Bio is a proprietary extract of andrographis standardized to a consistent level of active constituents. Double-blind, placebo-controlled human studies have found that AP-Bio™ andrographis promotes a healthy response to immune challenges.*
Copper is an essential trace mineral that can be found in many foods, particularly in meat, seafood, nuts, seeds, grain products, and cocoa products. Copper assists in maintaining levels of immune cells by increasing the production of interleukin-2, which helps them divide and differentiate.* When copper runs low, the numbers of these important immune cells fall.* Human clinical research has shown that copper promotes a healthy immune response.*
Zinc is an essential mineral that is found in cells throughout the body. Human clinical research has shown that zinc supports the immune system by warding off invading bacteria and viruses.* It also assists in the development and proper function of cells that mediate the body’s innate immunity including neutrophils and Natural Killer (NK) cells.
Q: When should I take this?
A: ImmunoComplex can be taken at the very first sign of feeling under the weather to boost resistance, or when an immune challenge is already underway to help speed recovery.*
