Why Dr Sheryl recommends this Supplement for Immunity
For centuries eastern medicine has used mushrooms for their healing and immune stimulating properties. Mushrooms contain biologically active polysaccharides, most commonly known as beta-glucans that increase host immune defense by activating macrophage activity. Macrophages are phagocytes. Their role is to phagocytose, or engulf and then digest, cellular debris and pathogens. They also stimulate lymphocytes and other immune cells to respond to pathogens. They are specialized phagocytic cells that attack foreign substances, infectious microbes and cancer cells through destruction and ingestion. Do you remember the video game called PAC -MAN, think of Macrophages as little PAC MEN who eat and destroy foreign invaders like viruses and bacteria? Here is an actual photo of white blood cell attaching itself and destroying these bacteria:
Maximum Immune Defense formula is rich in Beta-glucans. It contains 6 different species of medicinal mushrooms that provide concentrated amounts of specific types of polysaccharides – beta-glucans that have proven immune enhancing functions.
Personally I have experienced great results using this formula to keep my own immune system healthy, especially when traveling and during flu and cold season. Research has correlated positive results from the use of Beta-glucans in the treatment of cancer.

Complimentary products for Immunity
nutraMetrix® Curcumin Extreme™
As a Naturopath I teach the connection between the lymphatic system and detoxification of the liver. In order to treat an unhealthy immune system the first you must look at the cleansing and support of healthy liver function.
Curcumin supports the normal production of Phase II liver detoxification enzymes, including glutathione synthase, heme-oxygenase and catalase. The liver plays several roles in detoxification: it filters the blood to remove large toxins, synthesizes and secretes bile full of cholesterol and other fat-soluble toxins, and enzymatically disassembles unwanted chemicals. This enzymatic process usually occurs in two steps referred to as phase I and phase II. They promote the body’s natural enzyme antioxidant defense systems and function as a powerful indirect antioxidant. These enzymes promote the body’s normal metabolism of harmful chemicals such as heavy metals, toxins and pollutants into less reactive molecules. Curcumin has also been shown to promote normal hepatic tissue repair. There are many curcumin products on the market, but nutraMetrix Curcumin Extreme with BCM-95® has superior bioavailability and absorption 7 times stronger than just curcumin alone.

“Our 15 yr old daughter has battled flat warts on her legs for a couple of years. We have been to the dermatologist multiple times with no results. I noticed our immune bottle getting low. She just informed me that she has been taking it and her flat warts are completely gone.”
