Immune One Cell Support

Cell SupportImmune one naturals™ Cell Support is a synergistic dietary supplement comprised of all natural ingredients which include: Immune One™ Larch Arabinogalactan, Inositol Hexaphosphate (IP6), Sulphuraphane (SGS), Active Aloe™, Ester-C®, L-Lysine, L-Proline, Green Tea, Taurine, Silymarin and Barley Grass.

Immune one™ Larch Arabinogalactan (AG) is a naturally occurring polysaccharide (sugar) extracted from previously harvested Western Larch trees. These sugars (arabinose and galactose) are nutraceulicals (certain nutrients that act in a therapeutic manner) and are not metabolized as ordinary sugars and therefore do not affect insulin. AG is GRAS.

In the Northwestern United States, AG was originally used in its natural form by Native Americans for their animal’s health. It was used internally and externally for animals’ immune and gastrointestinal needs, wounds and skin diseases. AG also contains naturally occurring Quercetin and Taxifolin, two of nature’s best antioxidants.

AG has been extensively researched throughout the world since 1970 and is patented by the University of Montana for human and animal gastrointestinal disorders or other disorders in which beneficial moderation of the intestinal microflora or an increase in the large intestine PH is sought. It has been shown to increase the production of short-chain fatty acids (SCFA), principally butyrate which protects colon cells against agents that lead to cellular differentiation.

Experimental studies have indicated AG can stimulate natural killer (NK) cell cytotoxicity, enhance other functional aspects of the immune system and inhibit the metastasis of tumor cells to the liver.

Inositol Hexaphosphate (IP6) is a naturally occurring polyphosphorlated carbohydrate occurring in and extracted from brown rice. It is thought that the low incidence of cancer in Japan is due to the high consumption of brown rice. It has been shown in more than 25 studies to prevent the growth of tumors and shrink existing tumors in humans and animals. Much of the scientific support for IP6 is derived from the research of noted scientist Abulkalam Shamsuddin, M.D., of the University of Maryland School of Medicine.

IP6 has been shown to greatly increase the tumor suppressor gene p53. It is efficiently absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract and safe. In addition to reducing cell proliferation, IP6 increases differentiation of malignant cells, often resulting in a reversion to normal phenotype.

Sulforaphane Glucosinolate (SGS), Broccoli Sprout Powder. It has been long accepted that the cruciferous vegetables are beneficial for good health. In 1992 a team of Johns Hopkins University scientists isolated the cancer fighting phytochemical in broccoli called glucoraphanin which is the glucosinolate precursor of sulforaphane or SGS.

The cancer preventative property of cruciferous vegetables and SGS is the subject of over 700 research studies to date. SGS works as a potent catalyst to boost Phase 2 enzymes in the body. These detoxification enzymes trigger ongoing antioxidant actions for at least 72 hours. Scientists have demonstrated that SGS inhibits the progression of lung cancer by causing the programmed death of the damaged cells. Japanese study results suggest that SGS may be useful in reduction of H. Pyloru infection and chemoprevention against gastric cancer.

Qmatrix® Active Aloe Modified Aloe Polysaccharide (MAP). Aloe Vera is a very complex substance made up f many bioactive ingredients. These include polysaccharides, enzymes amino acids, vitamins, minerals, antibiotic and antifungal agents, salicylic acid and some 75 other compounds.

Aloe Vera has been used for centuries to heal first and second degree burns and skin irritations. Now extensive studies have determined the safety of Qmatrix® MAP as an anti-cancer ingredient.

MAP increases short chain fatty acids (SCFA), which enhances the growth of beneficial gut bacteria. Studies show butyrate helps reduce the risk of colon cancer and improve the bioavailability of vitamins’ C, E and B12. It is GRAS. The South Korean FDA allows immune support claims in South Korea.

Ester C, L-lysine, L-proline & Green Tea Extract (Epigallocatechin Gallate)(EGCG 50%). Dr. Matthias Rath, M.D., and his associate, Aleksandra Niedzwiecki, PhD., have shown that the combination of Vitamin C, amino acids’, L-lysine, L-proline and EGCG inhibit the metastasis of cancer cells. These findings were presented and the 19th annual Miami Breast Cancer Conference in 2002. Vitamin C has been shown to be effective in eliminating abnormal cells in the body while protecting normal cells. L-lysine prevents digestion of collagen by blocking sites where enzymes attach, making it critical in preventing the degradation of connective tissue. EGCG is an important polyphenols such as Epigallocatechin Gallate exert anti-mutagenic, anti-proliferative and anti-neoplastic properties.

Milk Thistle Extract 80%. Silymarin is known for its potent liver protecting substances. It is believed to prevent free radical damage by acting as an antioxidant. It also stimulates production of new liver cells and prevents formation of damaging leukatrienes.

Taurine is used in some clinics for cancer treatment. It also acts as an antioxidant and protects against toxicity of various substances such as lead and cadmium.

Barley Grass is high in calcium, iron, all the essential amino acids, chlorophyll, flavinoids, vitamin B12, vitamin C and many minerals and enzymes. This food heals stomach, duodenal and colon disorders as well as pancreatitis and is an effective anti-inflammatory.
