Our Immune Defence Capsules contain three of nature’s newly-discovered and most powerful immune supporters: Fucoidan, Mangosteen and Camu Camu.
Fucoidan is an amazing natural extract from Undaria seaweed and a key part of the Okinawan longevity diet. Fucoidan has been shown to provide strong, safe immune support for immune-compromised individuals and has a wide range of antiviral properties. Fucoidan supports the body against winter viruses and may support the immune system where tropical viruses are prevalent along with good hygiene practices and avoidance of being bitten in the first instance where these tropical diseases are spread by mosquitos. Fucoidan activates the human immune system by signalling the body’s killer T cells. Fucoidan also assists the body in the regulation of inflammatory processes.
Our fucoidan is sustainably harvested (by hand) from the pristine, waters of Tasmania, Australia and the deep south Pacific - some of the last remaining natural habitats where these seaweed species grow in uncontaminated pollution and radiation free waters. From there it goes through an organic, cold water and solvent-free extraction process to maintain nutritional integrity and high bioavailability. It is one of the most premium grades of fucoidan available worldwide.
Mangosteen is a purple coloured fruit with a delicious juicy centre that grows throughout the tropical rainforests of South East Asia. Often referred to as the 'Queen of the tropical fruits', Mangosteen has been used in traditional medicine for thousands of years due to its unique immune supporting health benefits. These benefits primarily come from the mangostin and xanthone antioxidant compounds found in the rind of the fruit, which is why we use a concentrated powdered form of the fruit that includes the whole rind pericarp and captures all of the anti viral and anti bacterial compounds present in mangosteen.
Camu Camu fruit grows in the river deltas of the Peruvian and Brazilian Amazon Rainforest and has the highest documented vitamin C levels of any fruit known. Fresh camu camu's vitamin C content is around 11 x that of blackcurrants, 38 x that of strawberries and 46 x that of oranges. Our concentrated 4 : 1 camu camu powder contains the whole vitamin C complex including factor J,F and bioflavonoids. These complex components of the vitamin C complex are only available in natural sources of vitamin C such as Camu Camu and other fresh fruit sources in your diet.
Combined, Fucoidan, mangosteen rind and Camu Camu provide safe and strong immune support naturally.
