Ingredients per capsule:
Other sterols 5-6%
The sterol component of this formula is sourced from non-GMO soy and the sterolin content is derived from pine bark.
Suggested dose for adults: 1 capsule 2 times daily or as directed by your health care practitioner.
Primary action: By taking both sterols and sterolins, this formula helps balance the cells of the immune system to strengthen an under-active immune system and, at the same time, turn off an overactive immune system. By enhancing only the function of the TH-1 cells and not the TH-2 helper cells, phytosterols/sterolins may provide that crucial balance.
Helper cells are divided into two types, Type TH-1 and Type TH-2. These cells must remain in a delicate balance at all times for the body to remain healthy. TH-1 cells control the TH-2 (Type 2 Helper) cells, which can over stimulate B-cell activity. Too many B-cells (or antibodies) can cause an autoimmune reaction. Uncontrolled over-activity of B-cells is thought to be responsible for debilitating or chronic autoimmune disorders such as:
• Rheumatoid Arthritis
• Multiple Sclerosis (MS)
• Myasthenia Gravis (MG)
• Recent research has concentrated on immune system stabilization in AIDS patients.
Phyto-Immun is indicated for the above conditions as well as for the treatment of:
• Gastric ulcers
• High cholesterol
• Benign prostate hypertrophy (BPH)
• Chronic inflammation.
Research has shown that a mixture of sterols and sterolins in a ratio of approximately 80:1 is more effective than either sterol alone.
