Immunovite (Beta Glucan)
Immunovite: 30 vegan capsules. Immunovite contains Beta 1-3, 1-6 Glucan, a powerful immune-priming nutritional supplement. This unique compound primes the innate immune system to help the body defend itself against viral and bacterial invaders.
What is Beta 1-3, 1-6 Glucan?
Beta 1-3, 1-6 Glucan is a scientifically-proven biological defence modifier (BDM) that potentiates the immune response through macrophage and dendritic immune cells to safely yield various therapeutic effects. For many years, glucans have been investigated for these immune-priming properties, particularly their ability to activate macrophage immune cells and, in turn, the T-cells, NK cells and B cells, including selected cytokines. Beta 1-3, 1-6 Glucan is a natural substance, derived from the cell wall of baker’s yeast. It is a pure extraction and does not contain enough yeast protein to cause any allergic reactions. Cells involved in the immune response originate from stem cells originating from bone marrow. New cells from bone marrow are produced on an ongoing basis throughout the life cycle. However, the formation and migration of newly-formed, white immune cells (that can promote or produce antibodies) is limited, and declines with aging. Beta glucan nutritionally stimulates the production of needed precursor cells in bone marrow, yielding an increased flow of immunocytes into the blood stream and the various lymphoid organs. Beta 1-3, 1-6 Glucan non-specifically activates the immune system, primarily by ingestion by the macrophage immune cells, through specific and unique beta glucan receptors on the cell surface.
Beta 1-3, 1-6 Glucan also potentiates and activates various cells of the body, particularly macrophage cells, to release tumour necrosis factor, interleukins 1 and 6, hydrogen peroxide and gamma interferon, all of which fight against invading micro-organisms. Beta glucan potentiation of the immune response is systemic, activating the immune system throughout the whole body. The efficacy of beta glucan is widely researched and studied.

Organic Flaxseed Oil – 200ml vegan liquid – 500ml vegan liquid
Cytoplan liquid flax seed oils are organic and cold pressed. We believe this is the best flax oil product available for sale anywhere. Sold in 200ml & 500ml bottles it is the most wonderful, smooth, nutty-tasting, mineral-rich oil available.
It has organic status, which means that it is: • Free from pesticides • Free from herbicides. It is genuinely cold-pressed, which means that it is unprocessed and that the fatty acid content will remain unharmed in the extraction. (Heat damages the delicate essential fatty acids.) People use flax seed oil for its omega 3 content. Omega 3 oils are easily damaged by processing. They also degenerate quickly in the presence of oxygen, hence our bottles being flushed out with nitrogen to enhance the stability of the oil.
The omega 3 content of organic flax seed oil is likely to be more active than in non-organic linseed oil. Flax seed oil is the richest known source of the unsaturated alpha-linolenic acid, necessary for physical health but lacking in the foods most people regularly eat. Flax seed oil contains about 45-65% LNA. The remainder of the oil is monounsaturated oleic acid and about 10% saturated fatty acids. Fresh, unrefined flax oil contains lecithin and other phospholipids that help emulsify fats and oils for easier digestion and can contribute to physical health. Flax seed oil also contains beta carotene and vitamin E. These vitamins are necessary to stabilise the oil in both the bottle and the body. When oil is refined, vitamins and lecithin are removed, and its stability and many health-giving components are lost.
This ia a Biofood Multivitamin and Mineral formulation giving excellent levels of all necessary minerals, plus vitamins C and E and Co enzyme Q10. It is particularly recommended for those wishing to rebuild their vitamin and mineral stocks.
