Dr. Wolz immune capsule contains an innovative combination of micronutrients in which key immune substances, antioxidants, vitamin C (from acerola cherries) and organically bound zinc are combined into a natural immunoactive complex. With the bioactive substance beta-1,3/1,6-glucan from the wall of yeast cells, the lactic acid bacterium Lactobacillus paracasei MCC1849 as well as the phytochemical quercetin.
Immun select is useful to people who want to support their body’s immune defence, athletes who want to help maintain their immune system during phases of training, and people suffering from fatigue and exhaustion.
Beta glucans are very valuable long-chain dietary fibres (natural polysaccharides). They are obtained from the cell walls of the smallest fungus in the world. Only (1->3), (1->6)-beta-D-glucans meet the necessary requirements for Immun select.
The phytochemical quercetin is what causes the natural yellow dye in the polyphenols group.
Quercetin is to be found in high concentrations in onions, apples and broccoli. But the majority of quercetin can be destroyed through storage and preparation (e.g. by being heated). As the valuable dye is chiefly contained in the peel, it is also lost when such fruit and vegetables are peeled. A daily dose of Immun select Dr. Wolz contains as much quercetin as 1 kilogram of broccoli or 500 grams of apples.
Lactobacillus paracasei MCC1849, the strain of lactic acid bacteria used in Immune select Dr. Wolz, was selected from thousands because under comparison it showed the highest potential for supporting the immune system. There are several positive (human) studies relating to it.
The trace element zinc performs numerous functions in the body. One key function is helping boost the immune system. Zinc is chiefly to be found in food of animal origin (especially oysters, offal, fish, cheese). For people on vegetarian or unbalanced diets it can be useful to take zinc supplements. Dr. Wolz uses natural zinc biologically bound in zinc yeast for Immun select.
Vitamin C from acerola, is not only the best known of vitamins, it is also a bonafide multi-talent as it performs a wide range of bodily functions incl. lending support for a healthy immune system. Dr. Wolz uses vitamin C from the juice of acerola cherries for Immun select. It is therefore naturally present in all precursors and so has better bioavailability than synthetic ascorbic acid. Acerola grows in the tropical regions of Central and South America and is considered to be one of the most abundant fruit sources of vitamin C on Earth.
