Bio-Immunozyme Forte™ consists of a variety of nutrients and factors that support immune function. Vitamin C and bioflavonoids have been well documented in their support of healthy immune function via the immunological activity of leukocytes, interferon, and inflammatory reactions to promote resistance to infection.
Neonatal thymus gland concentrate is one of many nutritive components that support neutrophil production and cell-mediated immunity. Cell-mediated immunity is crucial in the body’s resistance to yeasts, fungi, parasites, bacteria, and most importantly, viruses, because it is a frontline defense that does not require antibody production.
Zinc, an essential cofactor for over 70 enzymes, is of vital importance for the highly proliferating cells of the immune system, particularly monocyte and macrophage function, as well as affecting the number and activity of neutrophil granulocytes and natural killer (NK) cells.
Vitamin A maintains a distinct action on cellular immunity. In addition to its role in the support of mucosal surfaces, it also aids in maintaining lymphatic tissues, and in antibody production, particularly that of secretory IgA.
Another antioxidant with marked effect on immunoactivity is vitamin E, which in addition to its protective effects on gastric mucosa, has been shown to improve immune responsiveness, as evidenced by a decrease in lipidperoxidation, ie. PGE2. Other ingredients in Bio-Immunozyme Forte™ include L-Lysine, Echinacea, Capsicum annum, Chlorophyllins, methyl donors and Lactobacillus acidophilus (DDS-1).
