Pure Encapsulations PureDefense chewables 120 tabs are a comprehensive blend of nutrients and herbal extracts designed to support immune function in a convenient, great-tasting, chewable tablet. EpiCor® saccharomyces cerevisiae fermentate contains numerous immune enhancing bioactive metabolites designed to support both innate and adaptive immune response. Research suggests that it enhances natural killer cell activation, B cell and T cell function, and secretory IgA levels. In two randomized, double blind, placebo-controlled trials, EpiCor®provided statistically significant support for upper respiratory tract health and overall immune health. Elderberry extract provides powerful immune enhancing anthocyanins, flavonoids and other polyphenols. Studies have shown statistically significant immune support in all ages. Quercetin maintains healthy histamine production by supporting healthy enzyme activity. Zinc and vitamin C, provided as the non-acidic enhanced retention Ester-C®, help boost immune defense by supporting immune cell proliferation, activation and function, as well as healthy antioxidant enzyme function.*
PureDefense chewables provide overall immune defense and upper respiratory health support in a great-tasting chewable tablet.
