A recent story posted on SheKnows.com highlighted “Power Foods That Help Guard Your Health.” We were happy to see a section on immune support and even happier to see that Wellmune was included in the story as a great choice for enhancing the immune system without over-stimulating it.

As author Felicia D. Stoler, DCN, MS, RD, FACSM pointedly notes, “Grocery shopping today is like going on a treasure hunt. You can either load your cart with things that fill you up but don’t do much to keep you healthy, or you can reach for everyday superfoods that support your well being.”

She goes on to say, “Foods and drinks fortified with the right nutrients can help your immune system function at its peak and reduce a cold’s symptoms.” That’s a good reminder of the importance of everyday immune support as we approach cold and flu season.

Check out the latest issue of Nutraceutical Business & Technology for an article on how Wellmune WGP may change the way athletes, trainers and coaches approach supplementation. Substantial research demonstrates that high intensity exercise weakens the immune system.  If you’re not well, you cannot achieve training or performance goals.  Clinical studies in marathon runners and cyclists in a heat stress lab showed that Wellmune WGP reduced the incidence of upper respiratory tract infection symptoms and activated protective immune responses that maintain health.  The results have sports nutrition implications for both recreational and elite athletes.



NutraIngredients-USA.com, a leading website for the supplement and nutrition industry, reported today that Wellmune WGP® is rapidly gaining acceptance as an immune health ingredient among major food, beverage and supplement manufacturers.  Wellmune WGP, which primes innate immune cells that keep the body healthy, is an ingredient in products in more than 30 countries, including juices, fruit smoothies, toddler formula, soups and healthy snacks. The manufacturers of these products range from large global companies such as Mead Johnson and Coca Cola to regional food, beverage and supplement companies.
