Pure Encapsulations PureDefense w/ NAC 20C
PureDefense w/NAC contains a combination of EpiCor®, N-acetyl-l-cysteine (NAC), vitamins, zinc and herbal extracts designed to promote overall immune defense and provide enhanced support for upper respiratory health. EpiCor® is a fermentate of Saccharomyces cerevisiae containing various bioactive metabolites produced in a specialized fermentation process. These nutrient metabolites enhance immune cell production, including natural killer (NK) cells, B cells and T cells. NK cells are part of the body’s innate, or first-line, immune response. They respond more quickly than the adaptive immune system comprised of B cells and T cells. Once activated, natural killer cell activity peaks in as quickly as several hours, providing rapid support and wide-range immune defense.*
Uses For PureDefense w/NAC
Immune Defense: In one cellular study, EpiCor® promoted natural killer cell activation, as well as that of B cells and T cells. In two randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trials, EpiCor provided statistically significant support for upper respiratory tract health and overall immune health. A separate open label, in-house trial indicated a strong potential for EpiCor supplementation to enhance secretory IgA levels after 30 days. These various actions demonstrate the ability of EpiCor to address both innate and adaptive immune responses. NAC promotes endogenous glutathione production for antioxidant protection and provides lung defense mechanisms for healthy respiratory function. In a randomized, double-blind trial involving mostly older individuals, NAC supported comfort, nasal function and respiratory health through the winter months. Vitamin C, vitamin D and zinc provide nutritional immune support, enhancing healthy immune cell proliferation, activation and function. Vitamin D receptors have been found on a number of immune cell types, and it is believed to play an important role in seasonal immune health. Vitamin C and the bioflavonoid quercetin also help boost immune defense by supporting healthy antioxidant enzyme function.*
