Quick Overview

    Product Description

    Moducare is a proprietary blend of plant sterols and sterolins that modulates the immune system. Plant sterols – phytosterols and their glycosides (also known as phytosterolins) – are fats present in fruits, vegetables, and medicinal plants. Beta-sitosterol (BSS) and its glycoside (BSSG) are the most abundant of these plant sterols. BSS and BSSG, even at very low levels, have been shown to enhance the activity of T-helper 1 (TH1) cells, cytotoxic T-cells, and NK cells. Up-regulation of TH1 activity is coupled with a corresponding down-regulation of an overactive T-helper 2 response and a subsequent decrease in inflammatory cytokine production – all of which can benefit those with allergies, chronic viral diseases, and autoimmune conditions.

    Moducare supplementation reduces inflammatory cytokine production, helps maintain a normal cortisol-to-DHEA ratio, and improves the balance of TH1 to TH2 cells. This enhances cellular immunity and down-regulates hyperactive immune responses associated with asthma and allergic rhinitis.

    Decreased activity of TH1 cells can also correspond to a decrease in serum DHEA levels. Plant sterols have been shown to maintain cortisol and elevate DHEA levels, thereby decreasing the cortisol-to-DHEA ratio and subsequently buffering negative stress responses. The potential Moducare to inhibit immune suppression in a group of volunteers participating in an ultramarathon event was investigated in a double-blind, placebo-controlled study. The study found the hematological changes that accompany endurance exercise were more pronounced in individuals who received placebo than in those who received Moducare. The placebo individuals demonstrated neutrophilia with severe lymphopenia characterized by a profound decrease in the total number of T cells, especially the T helper (CD4) subset. These abnormalities were primarily negated or reversed in volunteers in the treatment group.
