Moducare® is an excellent source of plant sterols. These beneficial plant fats, also known as phytosterols, are found in fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds. Phytosterols offer immune-enhancing properties and can activate the cells that regulate immunity. Phytosterols also have anti-inflammatory properties and can help lower the release of the stress hormone cortisol. These combined benefits of phytosterols offer significant support to daily immune system health.
Helps support a healthy immune system balance.
How It Works
Moducare® is considered a daily supplement and should be taken for as long as you want to help balance the immune system. Sterols and sterolins do not “fix” the immune system, but provide the nutrients needed to help keep it in balance. They are absorbed in the small intestine and are then transported to the cell membrane. Here, they are beneficial to the messenger system within the cell and modulate specific immune factors that can help control disease conditions.
Research on sterols has been underway since the 1920s. Originating in South Africa, research on the exact combination of sterols and sterolins found in Moducare® has spanned decades. There has been extensive testing and clinical trials, including double-blind, placebo-controlled studies. This research has shown that Moducare® can increase natural killer cell activity, improve the activity of T cells and may also be effective in the management of chronic inflammatory conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis and seasonal allergies. Several studies on plant sterols and sterolins have been published in international medical journals.
Moducare® is well tolerated and considered safe. However, when the immune system becomes balanced, some sensitive individuals may experience symptoms that indicate the body is trying to rid itself of toxins. These symptoms are temporary and may include digestive problems, rashes, headaches and fatigue.
Interactions & Safety Considerations
There are no known interactions between Moducare® and any natural supplements. There is no conclusive evidence to suggest an interaction with medication. Not to be used by organ and tissue transplant recipients, including bone marrow and corneal transplants, or individuals with a history of diabetes or multiple sclerosis, unless on the advice of and under the direct supervision of a health care practitioner. Do not use if you are pregnant, breastfeeding or have sitosterolemia. Some individuals may experience temporary digestive problems, rashes, headache and fatigue.
The key difference between Moducare® and other immune system aids such as echinacea is that echinacea only stimulates the immune system, while Moducare® balances it. Furthermore, echinacea is not recommended for prolonged use or for people with autoimmune conditions. Moducare® , on the other hand, is a daily immune support nutrient and may be used by people with autoimmune conditions. It is suggested to take Moducare® for two to three months before evaluating whether it is effective for you.
