Little ones can enjoy a blueberry-infused immune support formula with Moducare®, vitamin C, D and zinc.
Moducare® Junior MODUGUARD Booster is a convenient and delicious blend of immune-supportive nutrients – suitable for the whole family but specially formulated with junior immunity and taste buds in mind.
Moducare® combines the life-giving plant compounds, sterols and sterolins. Not only are they critical in the healthy growth and survival of plants, they have also been shown to help support a healthy immune system balance in humans. What does this mean? It means that they help to bring overall balance to the immune system by enhancing an underactive immune system and/or regulating an overactive one. Read here why this is so important. (link to section "The role of acquired immunity"). Research on sterols started in the 1920's. It was not until the 1990s that a great breakthrough occurred when it was shown that the combination of sterols and sterolins in the ratio of 100: 1 exhibits its most powerful immune-balancing activity, thus offering effective support to the functioning of the immune system.
When your immune system is underactive, your body cannot fight off infections and you can suffer from frequent colds and flus. When your immune system is in overdrive, it can overreact to normally harmless substances like pollen, dust, or certain foods, which can cause conditions like allergies, eczema, or asthma.
Moducare®’s proprietary formula in combination with organic blueberry powder, important immune-supportive vitamins A, C, D and E, as well zinc, supplies a great-tasting drink mix that your children will love.
How Moducare® Works
Moducare® capsules are a daily immune supplement and should be taken for as long as you want to help balance the immune system. Children are born with some immunity called innate immunity which they get from their mother while the rest of the immune system develops over time through exposure to agents in the environment – this is called adaptive immunity. The immune system is constantly seeking, recognising and destroying invaders and creates memory to help kill off the invader if it is seen again. A healthy immune system keeps invaders at bay while not becoming overactive. Plant sterols and sterolins help keep our immune system balanced so that the immune army is strong yet does not become overactive, which is associated with autoimmune disease.
Research on sterols has been ongoing since the 1920s. Research on the exact combination of sterols and sterolins found in Moducare® began in Germany and South Africa. 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 using Moducare® plant sterols and sterolins have been published in international medical journals for chronic viral infections, and more. For all the studies, click here.
Moducare® capsules are generally well tolerated; however, some individuals may experience digestive complaints, rashes, headache, and fatigue as the immune system is being balanced. For more information, please read the Professional Information (link to “Professional Information 18062021.pdf”) or Patient Information Leaflet (link to “Patient Information Leaflet 18062021.pdf”). Should your general health worsen or if you experience any untoward effects while taking Moducare® capsules, please consult your healthcare provider for advice.
Interactions & Safety Considerations
There are no documented interactions between Moducare® capsules and any natural supplements. There is no conclusive evidence to suggest an interaction with medications. Do not use if you are pregnant, breastfeeding or have sitosterolemia. Not for use by organ and tissue transplant recipients or individuals with a history of diabetes or multiple sclerosis, unless on the advice of and under the direct supervision of a healthcare practitioner. Do not use if you are on any immunosuppressive therapy. For more information, please read the Professional Information (link to “Professional Information 18062021.pdf”) or Patient Information Leaflet (link to “Patient Information Leaflet 18062021.pdf”).
The key difference between Moducare® and other immune system aids such as echinacea is that echinacea boosts or stimulates the immune system, while Moducare® balances the immune system. 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, under supervision of their health care professional. It is suggested to take Moducare® capsules daily. It takes time to support a healthy immune system. We recommend you take Moducare® capsules for at least two to three months for optimal benefit.
