PureDefense w/NAC contains a combination of EpiCor®, N-acetyl- l-cysteine (NAC), vitamins, zinc and herbal extracts designed to promote overall immune defense and provide enhanced support for upper respiratory health. EpiCor® is a fermentate of Saccharomyces cerevisiae containing various bioactive metabolites produced in a specialized fermentation process.
These nutrient metabolites enhance immune cell production, including natural killer (NK) cells,
B cells and T cells. NK cells are part of the body’s innate, or first-line, immune response. They respond more quickly than the adaptive immune system comprised of B cells and T cells. Once activated, natural killer cell activity peaks in as quickly as several hours, providing rapid support and wide-range immune defense.*
Zinc may be contraindicated with certain antibiotics. Elderberry may be contraindicated for individuals on immunosuppressant medications. NAC is contraindicated with nitroglycerin. Preliminary evidence suggests that quercetin may inhibit the metabolism of medications through the cytochrome pathways in the liver. Consult your physician for more information.
NB, Due to extremely high demand for products containing NAC, and current supplier shipping delays - delivery will be between 4 and 5 weeks.
