PureDefense with NAC from Pure Encapsualtions supports overall immune defense and provides support for upper respiratory health.
Natural killer 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. EpiCor® is a fermentate of Saccharomyces cerevisiae containing various bioactive metabolites. These nutrient metabolites are produced in a specialized fermentation process and support immune cell production. 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.
Pure Encapsulations designed this travel supplement with a complex called EpiCor® since it may enhance immune cell production. We also included NAC for antioxidant protection and healthy respiratory function. Additional ingredients like quercetin and elderberry provide flavonoids for immune and respiratory function, while vitamin C, D and zinc play important roles in immune cell activation.
In one cellular study, EpiCor® promoted natural killer cell activation, as well as B cells and T cells. A separate open label, in-house trial indicated a strong potential for EpiCor® supplementation to enhance secretory IgA levels after 30 days. In a randomized double-blind trial involving mostly older individuals, NAC showed support for respiratory health.
