Biothera’s clinical research demonstrates the ability of Wellmune WGP to protect against the harmful effects of stress, which may weaken the immune system and render individuals susceptible to health challenges. Biothera recently conducted two clinical studies involving marathon runners and people with high lifestyle stress. In both studies, Wellmune WGP reduced the incidence of upper respiratory tract infection (URTI) symptoms and increased psychological well being.
Wellmune WGP is named one of the top eight ingredients to watch in 2008. The immune health ingredient is backed by clinical research showing that Wellmune provides immune system support during periods of high stress. There is ample research demonstrating that physical and psychological stress can weaken the body’s immune defenses.
The conventional wisdom used to be that immune health products were about as sexy as insurance – maybe even a notch or two below. But growing consumer recognition of the importance of a healthy immune system to maintaining overall health has made immunity a leading driver in worldwide food and beverage innovation.
