Prime Immunity contains 250mg of beta-glucan, which has been the subject of more than 800 scientific studies and is recognized for its support of the immune system. Our purified beta glucans are derived from the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae, the most effective source. Among its many immune-boosting effects, it has been shown to stimulate neutrophil (a type of white blood cell) activity, improve antioxidant function, decrease tissue-damaging cytokine inflammation, and improve microbial balance. It is recommended to use regularly to improve resilience to infections, as well as during times of acute illness to accelerate recovery.
Prime Immunity Ingredients
Whole Glucan Particle (providing beta-glucan naturally derived from Saccharomyces cerevisiae), Dicalcium phosphate anhydrous, HPMC (capsule), stearic acid, magnesium stearate, silica, and medium-chain triglyceride oil.
Prime Immunity Directions
- For ongoing immune support: Take one capsule daily, first thing in the morning or last thing at night (before or well after a meal), with a full 8 oz glass of water. For fast-acting immune support:
- Take up to two capsules per day, as above; or use as directed by your healthcare practitioner.*
- Consult your healthcare practitioner prior to use. Individuals taking medication should discuss potential interactions with their healthcare practitioner. Do not use if the tamper seal is damaged.
Prime Immunity Does NOT Contain
