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.
