Why is the Wellmune brand ingredient so important?

Wellmune has been called "the most important development in clinical immunology in the last 30 years".

An independent university study conducted at the James Graham Brown Cancer Center at The University of Louisville demonstrated that Wellmune is significantly more effective than all other nutritional supplements in enhancing the ability of the immune system to protect the body.

Are there any side-effects as a result of taking ImmunoShield?

No. Wellmune has been demonstrated as the safest and most effective immune health ingredient in numerous peer-reviewed clinical (human) and preclinical scientific studies.

How often should I take ImmunoShield to keep my immune system strong?

The key cells in the innate immune system are renewed every 36 to 48 hours. As a result, the recommended ImmunoShield adult protective dose is one (1) capsule (250 mg Wellmune beta glucan) per day.

Can I take more ImmunoShield if I'm exposed to viruses eg. colds and flu?

Yes, we suggest increasing the dose to 2-3 capsules per day (taken at intervals) at times of increased viral or bacterial threat such as the winter flu season, or travelling by air.

Is there a special dose for children?

As ImmunoShield is so safe, children could take the same dose as adults. However, they do not actually need this much. Halve the dose for children up to 50kg in weight. Halve the capsules and tip out the powder.

What else can I do to improve the status of my immune system?

The basis of health is a good diet. But certain nutrients are especially important in maintaining a strong immune system. They include selenium, zinc and Vitamin D. Elements of a healthy diet include:

- 5 portions of fruit and vegetables per day
- 3 portions of whole-grain products per day
- 2 portions of dairy products per day
- A balance of essential oils: 2-3 portions of oily fish per week; olive oil and olive oil products instead of sunflower oil and sunflower oil products
- A fibre intake of at least 20 grams a day, including pre-biotic fibre
- 1-2 litres of water/water-based drinks (tea, coffee etc) per day

Uni-Vite's NutriShield is an exceptionally comprehensive supplement that has been formulated to give optimum baseline support to the body's overall healthy functioning, including the immune system.
