  • What Is It?


    PureDefense w/NAC contains a combination of EpiCor®,
    n-acetyl-l-cysteine (NAC), vitamins, zinc and herbal extracts
    designed to promote overall immune defense and provide
    enhanced support for upper respiratory health. EpiCor®
    is a fermentate of Saccharomyces cerevisiae containing
    various bioactive metabolites produced in a specialized
    fermentation process. These nutrient metabolites enhance
    immune cell production, including natural killer (NK) cells,
    B cells and T cells. Natural killer cells are part of the body's
    innate, or first-line, immune response. They respond more
    quickly than the adaptive immune system comprised of B
    cells and T cells. Once activated, natural killer cell activity
    peaks in as quickly as several hours, providing rapid
    support and wide-range immune defense.*


    Uses For PureDefense w/NAC


    Immune Defense: In one cellular study, EpiCor® promoted
    natural killer cell activation, as well as that of B cells and T
    cells. In two randomized, double blind, placebo-controlled
    trials, EpiCor provided statistically significant support for
    upper respiratory tract health and overall immune health.
    A separate open label, in-house trial indicated a strong
    potential for EpiCor supplementation to enhance secretory
    IgA levels after 30 days. These various actions demonstrate
    the ability of EpiCor® to address both innate and adaptive
    immune responses. NAC promotes endogenous glutathione
    production for antioxidant protection and provides
    lung defense mechanisms for healthy respiratory
    function. In a randomized double blind trial involving
    mostly older individuals, NAC supported comfort, nasal
    function and respiratory health through the winter months.
    Vitamin C, vitamin D and zinc provide nutritional immune
    support, enhancing healthy immune cell proliferation,
    activation and function. Vitamin D receptors have been
    found on a number of immune cell types, and it is
    believed to play an important role in seasonal immune
    health. Vitamin C and the bioflavonoid quercetin also help
    boost immune defense by supporting healthy antioxidant
    enzyme function.*

  • Are There Any Potential Side Effects Or Precautions?If pregnant or lactating, consult your physician before taking this product. NAC can cause GI upset, abdominal pain, vomiting, constipation or diarrhea. Zinc can cause a metallic taste in some individuals. There have been reports of quercetin causing headache or tingling in extremities. Consult your physician for more information.Are There Any Potential Drug Interactions?Zinc may be contra-indicated with certain antibiotics. Elderberry may be contra-indicated for individuals on immunosuppressant medications. NAC is contra-indicated with nitroglycerin. Preliminary evidence suggests that quercetin may inhibit the metabolism of medications through the cytochrome pathways in the liver. Consult your physician for more information.
