|Yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) 1,3-1,6 Beta-glucans*||200 mg|
|Vitamin D3 (400% of the reference value)||20 μg|
Yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) 1,3/1,6 Beta-glucans*,
bulking agent (microcrystalline cellulose), capsule shell (hydroxypropyl
methylcellulose), vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol derived from plant extract),
anticaking agents (magnesium salts of fatty acids,tricalcium phosphate).
The ingredient in Protect is called Wellmune, it is a natural ingredient, a beta 1,3/1,6 glucan from a proprietary strain of baker’s yeast. There are 13 clinical studies that support the safety and efficacy of Wellmune. This science cannot be applied to beta glucans from other yeasts or mushrooms, which have different structures and are less effective.
Protect should be taken daily to provide immune benefits. The average life span of an immune cell is approximately 24-36 hours, so it is important to continually take Protect to boost new immune cells that the body is constantly producing.
Yes, 1,3/1,6 Beta-glucans are found in foods, but these have different structures and in
studies are only half as effective.
Anyone who has received an organ transplant should be cautious. This is theoretically a risk group, even though pre-clinical tests have not found any problems. In general, follow the recommended dosage on the label.
The upper daily intake for vitamin D is 100 μg and this equals 5 capsules. If larger doses are taken by mistake over time, you should contact your doctor.
