|Immune Stimulator Handout
The human body is constantly being challenged or invaded by disease-causing microorganisms, chemical pollutants, radiation and harmful emotional and physical stress. Many conditions such as age, poor nutrition, stress, environmental pollution, organ- or systemic malfunctions and unhealthy lifestyle can reduce an individual immune status. The truth is, we can all use some help staying in the battle against microorganisms.
Nature's Immune Stimulator is a blend of well-researched natural ingredients known to support and boost the immune system, fight infections, help heal injuries resulting from infections and control other conditions that lay the foundation for disease. Natures Immune Stimulator will strengthen the body as a whole, helping you enjoy a better quality of life, no matter what your circumstances.
• Strengthens the immune system.
• Stimulates body's natural defenses to kill unfriendly microorganisms, viruses, bacteria, allergens, molds and parasites.
• Increases immunoglobulin proteins in the intestinal tract to combat foreign invaders.
• Acts as an antioxidant.
• Promotes the repair of DNA.
Nature's Sunshine Product Advantage
Nowhere else on the market can you find such a unique blend of products to bolster and support the human immune system. Nature's Immune Stimulator has been meticulously designed to promote macrophage activity in your body, leading to a chain reaction of immune activity, which will strengthen your entire system against enemy attack.
Nature's Immune Stimulator is a combination of these powerful components:
Beta Glucans 1/3 and 1/6 are long-chain polysaccharides that stimulate the immune system into action. Because they resemble bacteria, beta glucans are able to trick the body into an immune response, triggering an increase in the production of macrophages, T-cells, B-cells, natural killer cells, cytokines and antibodies.
Arabinogalactan stimulates natural killer cell and macrophage activity. It increases the production of essential nutrients for organisms beneficial to the gastrointestinal tract. These nutrients, principally butyrate and propionate, decrease the generation and absorption of ammonia, a toxic compound. Arabinogalactan also helps increase Bifidobacteria and Lactobacillus flora, two beneficial types of bacteria.
Colostrum is the first milk produced by mammals before the onset of lactation. This substance is rich in protein and immune-protecting transfer factors. Studies show that colostrum supports the immune system of the newborn, and it can also improve health later in life. It helps increase the number immunoglobulin proteins in the intestinal tract to fight foreign microorganisms.
Reishi Mushroom and Maitake Mushroom are both from the same family (polyporaceae), and their similar polysaccharide content is thought to boost immune activity, increase the activation of natural killer cells and activate macrophages.
Cordyceps is a potent antioxidant that protects the genes by promoting the repair of DNA. Studies show that it may help the body suppress tumor cells, slowing their proliferation. Cordyceps increases T-cell and B-cell activity. These two groups kill foreign invaders.
For maintenance, take 1 capsule between meals two or three times daily For periods of immune-system stress, take 6-10 capsules daily.
Those with any autoimmune conditions should seek advice from a health care practitioner before using this product.

Nature's Immune Stimulator
Ultimate War Hero in the Battle Against Disease
With the alarming rise in the rate of infectious diseases throughout the world, it's an indisputable fact that our immune systems are under serious assault. The immune system's job is to counterattack with its intricate and powerful chemical and cellular weapons to eliminate the enemy?those nasty bugs, chemicals and poisons that invade our bodies.
That makes our bodies a veritable war zone! When an immune system is weak and slow to respond, the foreign invaders may win the battle and the person whose body is the location of the battleground becomes sick.
We all want to stop losing these battles and win the war on illness and disease. Enter our ultimate war hero, Nature's Immune Stimulator.
This formula contains a powerful new ally in keeping our immune systems healthy?betaglucan. Formally termed as ß1,3/1,6?glucan, betaglucan is 200 more times effective than echinacea as an immune system stimulant! Now, that's a powerful weapon!
Beta?glucan activates a profound immune response like nothing else out there. It increases general immunity and strengthens resistance to infection by activating immune cells. Its primary action is on macrophages (which literally means "big eaters"). Macrophages devour invading pathogens of all kinds. The other important function of ß-glucan is to get the various types of cells talking to each other to help create rapid activation of the immune response. ß?3 talks directly to the immune cells, which rapidly turns those cells into effective war machines. This decreases the time lapse between the enemy's attack and the immune system's response. Faster battle?ready troops means the battle may be won more easily and quickly. This is the key to staying well and getting well faster when illness strikes.
According to Joan Vandergriff, NSP Senior National Manager (who helped NSP introduce this product because of her personal clinical success with beta?glucans), wonders can be achieved by using Nature's Immune Stimulator. For the profound results she has been getting with her clients, it is important to use Nature's Immune Stimulator along with Protease Plus and an active dietary and supplement program to bring the body's pH into balance. In fact she says, "Let me tell you something, and you can quote me on this one. I have been able to do more good for more people in the last two years since I have been applying this program, than in the whole 23 years that I have been helping people with Nature's Sunshine Products combined!" Now, there's a testimonial!
Nature's Immune Stimulator is 70% BetaGlucans. The other ingredients in our ultimate war hero's arsenal are:
This substance helps to increase friendly bacteria such as lactobacillus in the gastrointestinal tract and significantly decreases harmful bacteria like e?coli and salmonella. It increases white blood cell production and motivates the macrophages (those "big eater" cells) to do their work of killing microorganisms.
Colostrum is the milk?like fluid produced in the first 24 to 48 hours after birth in mammalian mothers (in this case, bovine) that provides life supporting immune and growth factors. Bovine colostrum is nearly identical to human colostrum and works just as well for humans. Colostrum has been used by Ayurvedic physicians in India for thousands of years. That's quite a track record!
Colostrum has a direct benefit to the immune system and can have an impact on a range of diseases. A wide variety of benefits have been reported in lower GI disorders like Crohn's disease, diverticulitis and irritable bowel syndrome; also asthma, allergies, heart disease and cancer which are directly related to how well the body's immune system is working. These are many of the "big boys" of diseases. Decrease incidents of these conditions. and much of the war on illness is won.
Research has shown that colostrum's natural immune and growth factors support immune function and help prevent illness. That means that you don't get sick as often because your immune system is working better on an everyday basis. Colostrum also helps with enhancing normal cell growth, tissue repair and healing from trauma, and increases beneficial bacteria in the digestive system. That's a fancy way of saying that colostrum helps your body heal faster and better from injuries and also helps to keep cancerous conditions from occurring. That's extremely important in our war against disease.
Cordyceps is a powerful antioxidant that increases production of those all-important T-cells and B-cells. It also protects genes by helping to repair DNA. Studies show that cordyceps may even help the body to suppress tumor cells and slow them down. More help in the war against cancer!
Reishi and Maitake Mushrooms
Reishi and maitake mushrooms both help to activate macrophages. Reishi increases natural killer cell activity, restores normal T-cell function, and increases interferon production, and maitake has been used for centuries to prevent cancer.
These mushrooms have also been shown to help modulate the immune system (i.e., to bring it into balance), making them potentially beneficial for autoimmune disorders. They have antioxidant properties, help to lower blood pressure and inhibit platelet aggregation in the circulatory system (which causes blood clotting).
These three fungii, cordyceps, reishi and maitake, have potential benefits in immune diseases like cancer, AIDS, asthma, allergies, pneumonia and lowered resistance. Together they make a powerful alliance against immune system attack. Whole books have been written on the benefits of these medicinal mushrooms alone.
Nature's Immune Stimulator should be a valuable supplement for helping the body overcome cancers, heart disease, AIDS, gastrointestinal conditions and any other immune challenge, including the common cold.
Nature's Immune Stimulator may be too powerful for people with autoimmune disorders where the immune system is already in an oversensitized and overstimulated state. However, colostrum and the immune-balancing mushrooms do help to balance the stimulating effect of the beta-glucans. So, it is possible that small amounts of this formula may be alright in certain autoimmune disorders. Seek advice from a qualified health-care practitioner if an autoimmune disorder is involved.
Since the molecule of beta-glucan is too large to be readily absorbed into the bloodstream, it has to go beyond the stomach to the small intestines, then to the lymphatic system. It is important to always take this product on an empty stomach. Also, any supplements that contain fiber should not be taken at the same time as Nature's Immune Stimulator, as they will inhibit its ability to get past the first stages of the digestive system. Night time is a good time to take this product.
Do not take with food or fiber products.
For maintenance: take 2 capsules at night or 1 capsule between meals two or three times daily. For times of immune system stress, overcoming illness and chronic conditions, take 6-10 capsules daily.
