WholeMune is formulated with Wellmune WGP, the most well-researched, single beta-glucan, proven in clinical trials to prepare and protect the immune system from repeated and ongoing stressors. Wellmune WGP is a highly purified, yeast-free beta-glucan extract derived from Saccharomyces cerevisiae; it is standardized to contain 75% pure beta-glucan and is considered to be the most effective single nutrient to naturally prime immune cells to enhance immune function. A strong immune system is integral to overall health and wellbeing. Maintaining a strong immune system can often be a challenge in today’s world- high stress levels, poor diet, lack of sleep and environmental pollutants can all slow down the immune response. WholeMune’s primary active ingredient is Wellmune WGP- a natural beta 1,3/1,6 glucan derived from the cell wall of a proprietary strain of baker’s yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae). Once swallowed, immune cells in the gastrointestinal tract take up Wellmune WGP and transport it to immune organs throughout the body. Specific immune cells called macrophages digest Wellmune WGP into smaller fragments and slowly release them over a number of days. The fragments then bind to neutrophils (white blood cells), via complement receptor 3 (CR3). Neutrophils are the most abundant immune cells in the body, accounting for 60-70% of all immune cells. The activation of neurotrophils by Wellmune WGP fragments allows these cells to move faster throughout the body, resulting in a significant boost in immune defense.
