Glucamune
Clinically proven
Immune System Support

Who is it for?

Clinically proven Glucamune is for anyone (all adults, children and infants) whose immune system is in need of a boost or because it could be run down through poor diet, stress, illness, age or lifestyle.

Use it to help fight allergy; help prevent infections such as cold and flu; add extra natural protection to help stay well when travelling; or simply to maintain the very best of health.

Ideal for those who take other supplements and those who require high doses. Suitable also for children and infants as there are no known conflicts or side effects.

Use Glucamune to naturally kick start your body's defence system to help boost natural immunity, fight against infection or just stay at your very best.

Why do I need to supplement my immune system?

The innate immune system - the most important element in our defence against infection - has been lulled into a state of low activity by our over-sanitised environment. Beta-Glucans are immuno-modulators; they restore the innate immune system to full effectiveness.

What are Glucans …. and how do they work?

Beta-Glucans are specialised carbohydrates built up of glucose molecules. They occur naturally in yeast, mushrooms and certain plants. 

Beta-Glucans from different sources come in  various types and structures, with different effects in the body. The beta glucans in Glucasan Plus, derived from baker's yeast, are the best documented and most effective immuno-modulators available.

Which should I chose - Glucasan+ Betamune75 or Glucamune?

Glucamune has no added minerals so is suitable for those taking additional mineral supplements, children and infants and those on a high doses used in a combination with cancer treatments.

Glucamune versus current Supplements:

Vs Echinacea

Echinacea - found to be ineffective protecting against respiratory tract infections such as coughs and colds (Grimm & Muller '99, Barrett et al 02, Kreutzfeld '06); ineffective or not proven (Caruso & Gwaltney '05, Carr & Nahata '06, Linde et al '06).

Vs Aloe Vera

Aloe Vera - may kill immune cells (Ramamoorthy & Tizard '98). Ineffective against viruses (Unsinger ‘97)

Vs Pro biotics

Pro biotics - efficacy only against gastrointestinal infections

Vs Goldenseal

Goldenseal - no in vivo evidence. Linked to potentially fatal adverse effects (Bhowmick et al ‘07)

Vs Cat's Claw

Cats Claw - interesting anti-inflammatory properties (ie Mur et al '02), but no in vivo evidence of immune activity

Vs Antioxidants

Antioxidants - may even be harmful (Bjelakovic & Gluud ‘07)
