“We understand the importance of a strong immune system to the overall health of children,” said Richard G.

Clinical research continues to demonstrate the immune health benefits of Wellmune for children and people of all ages.”
Wellmune WGP is proprietary baker’s yeast beta glucan that mobilizes billions of innate immune cells that are part of the body’s natural defenses, without over stimulating the immune system. Ten clinical studies support the safety and efficacy of this natural super fiber.

My wife and I created I Mune Nurture to provide children with a 100% natural drink that would strengthen their immunity and keep their bodies healthy,” said Derek Sanders, founder of Natural Immune Products Ltd. “In our search for the right ingredients, we were thrilled to incorporate Wellmune because it is scientifically proven to naturally and effectively support healthy immunity.”
