Over the past two decades, understanding immune system health has come to the forefront of natural health discussions because we’ve realized not only the significance of balanced immune health, but also how much diet and lifestyle impact daily immune function. In fact, we now know the immune system is all that separates our bodies from health and illness, and that supporting the immune system with a balanced diet of whole foods, regular exercise and clinically-proven immune-enhancing nutrients can help prevent the onset of colds and flu, infections and diseases as well as painful inflammatory conditions and autoimmune disorders.
There are many strategies to support immune system health. First and foremost is to strive for a healthy diet rich in fruits, vegetables, whole grains and legumes, nuts and seeds, lean meats and essential fatty acids, and low in processed foods, saturated fats and white flour or sugar. Physical fitness and emotional health are also critical for immune function, as is our ability to combat the effects of daily stress. Certain nutrients offer specific immune support, including vitamins A and C, the mineral zinc and most importantly, Nature’s Harmony® Moducare®, a unique blend of plant sterols and sterolins clinically-proven to support daily immune system function.
Sterols and sterolins are natural plant substances that support the immune system, specifically targeting underactive or overactive immune systems and shifting them back into balance. Found in fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds, plant sterols and sterolins, also known as phytosterols, are plant fats that are similar in chemical structure to cholesterol. Phytosterols offer immune-enhancing properties and can activate the cells that regulate immunity. Phytosterols also have anti-inflammatory properties and can help lower the release of the stress hormone cortisol and specific immune factors linked to disease.
Since phytosterols are delicate and may be destroyed through processing, freezing, or cooking, scientists have investigated ways to capture the benefits of phytosterols in supplement form. More than two decades of internationally recognized clinical research and double-blind studies show that the patented, unique blend of sterol and sterolins found only in Nature’s Harmony® Moducare® can help strengthen, balance and restore immune system function safely and effectively. Moducare® uses a proprietary process to preserve the ideal combination of sterols and sterolins proven to be helpful for both underactive and overactive immune systems.
Moducare® is proven effective for adults and children, and should be taken daily between meals. Available in capsules or naturally delicious Grape Chewable tablets, perfect for children or those with difficulty swallowing, Moducare® is the leader in daily immune system health.
