Aller-Essentials by Pure EncapsulationsWhat Is It?
Aller-Essentials is designed to maintain healthy immune function in response to the environment, including healthy mast cell function, nasal function, cytokine balance and immune cell activity.*
Uses For Aller-Essentials
Immune Response: EpiCor® Saccharomyces cerevisiae fermentate contains numerous immune enhancing bioactive metabolites designed to support both innate and adaptive immune response.
Research suggests that it enhances natural killer cell activation, B cell and T cell function, and salivary IgA levels. In a double-blind, placebo-controlled trial involving 96 subjects, EpiCor® supported nasal comfort during a 12-week period in the spring. Additionally, it supported salivary IgA levels, an important first line defense produced by the mucosal tissue.
In a randomized double blind trial involving 75 individuals, Tinospora cordifolia provided significant support for a healthy immune response by maintaining normal nasal function as well as healthy neutrophil and eiosinophil activity. A randomized double-blind, placebo-controlled trial involving apple polyphenols reveals support for maintaining a healthy nasal lining and nasal function.
Quercetin, hesperidin and vitamin C provide additional support for stabilizing mast cells.*
