Healthy Aging Starts with a Strong Immune System.
As we age, our immune system slows and weakens, but the desire for an active lifestyle does not. To combat this, older adults must take a proactive approach to staying healthy by supporting their immune function.
Healthy immune support for older adults.
Supporting health and wellness as we age.
As we get older, the body produces fewer immune cells, communication between cells breaks down, and responses to health challenges diminish. The slow decline of immune function can significantly impact overall health and vitality. Wellmune®-activated immune cells are ready to respond more quickly as needed, helping to support the immune system.
Respiratory infections are a major source of health burden and a leading cause for antibiotic use. The concept of using Wellmune as a nutritional supplement to support immune defenses was very popular with study participants.- Richard Fuller, M.D., study leader and University of Southampton Hospital Department of Primary Care and Population Science
Support for seasonal challenges.
In a cold-and-flu season pilot study with older adults, Wellmune demonstrated a trend towards reducing the number of upper respiratory tract infections (URTI), reducing symptom days of a cold, and statistically significant changes in the body’s response to viral encounters and inflammation.
For product manufacturers.
As the global population over 60 is expected to grow 56% by 2030, there will be a growing demand for food, beverage and supplement products that support the immune system. Adding Wellmune to functional products is a natural way to meet the immunity needs of older adults.
Wellmune could have significant public health benefits to improve the human immune response.”- Institute of Food Technologists Innovation Award
