A healthy body begins with a healthy immune system. If your body has a strong immune response to dangerous viruses and bacteria, it will keep you fit and well. There are numerous ways to strengthen your immune system, as LYMA's Science Director and world leading Pharmacologist Dr Paul Clayton has continuously demonstrated over the past decade.
On this page, we explain why LYMA has chosen to complete its formula with the most effective and clinically proven anti-inflammatory and immune system booster Wellmune® Blend:
Your goal should be to boost your immunity to external stressors without developing sensitivities or intolerances. You don’t want to boost your immune system to the point where your body becomes desensitised to its efforts; this can lead to autoimmune diseases and other complications.
Striking the right balance is fundamental and the secret lies in training your immune system to act in your best interests. In line with the new longevity medicine trend, immune system maintenance is just as important as immune system boosting, allowing you not just to cope, but thrive.
LYMA contains everything you need for optimal immune functioning and provides you with support when you need it most. Welcome to innovative immune support.
Our Wellmune® Blend is a highly specialized 1,3 1,6 natural beta glucan found in yeast. Beta glucans are naturally occurring in a whole range of foods from cereals and grains (think oats, barley and rye), to medicinal mushrooms and certain kinds of algae, including seaweed.
Our Wellmune® Blend's beta glucan has proven consistently powerful in peer-reviewed studies for its ability to enhance key immune responses in the body, improve overall health, and keep us healthy during times of stress.
Despite the fact that our Wellmune® Blend is extracted from yeast, it is purified and thus gluten free.
The Wellmune® Blend has been clinically proven to boost our innate, rapid fire immune system by priming white blood cells to engage quickly and effectively with foreign pathogens. Specifically, the beta glucans in Wellmune® Blend work to instruct your body’s T cells to go to battle and wage war on those pesky invaders!
Not all beta glucans are created equal. While beta glucans are a relatively common form of supplementation for immunity, and are available to buy in most good health shops, our Wellmune® Blend has been shown to be the fastest-acting and most efficacious supplement for fighting off foreign bodies. Nothing else comes close.
This Wellmune® Blend can - and should - be taken every day. It is natural, safe and has no known side-effects.
Studies have shown time and again the powerful effects of our Wellmune® Blend on the immune system. Results include reduced instances of missed work or school due to illness, increased stamina, diminished fatigue, lower stress levels, and reduced frequency and severity of eye and nasal allergy symptoms. Alongside our Wellmune® Blend, here is how to boost your immune system through autumn and winter.
Our Wellmune® Blend, when taken regularly, can revolutionise your immune system. It is particularly important to strengthen your immune system if you are older, especially active, pregnant or breastfeeding, under acute stress, or if you have underlying health conditions.
When you supplement with our Wellmune® Blend, the beta glucans are absorbed in the digestive tract and transported via the blood to your ‘immune organs’, including your spleen, lymph nodes, bone marrow and skin. Once our Wellmune® Blend has penetrated the immune organs, the body proceeds to break down the beta glucans into smaller, more readily available matter. Your immune system will then, slowly and steadily, release these smaller beta glucans into the body, at which point our Wellmune® Blend will activate the immune response in every cell it meets. It is this ‘slow and steady’ release mechanism that ensures the immune system doesn’t end up overwhelmed or overstimulated, and is able to assimilate our Wellmune® Blend without going into autoimmune response mode.
Our Wellmune® Blend also has powerful anti-inflammatory properties and can help to fight the free radicals that are associated with the constant, low-level, oxidative stress that is so common in modern life.
Ideally, you should be taking 250mg per day, as outlined in clinical studies. This is the amount that can be found in our formula.
You can support your immune system by ensuring you’re getting the right balance of vitamins and minerals in your diet. An adequate intake of vitamin C is of course vital for boosting your immune system, but you don’t need to limit yourself to oranges and other citrus fruits. Other great sources of vitamin C include broccoli, red, green and yellow peppers, kiwi, papaya, sweet potato, strawberries, raspberries and tomato.
In addition to vitamin C, you should be loading up on zinc and vitamin D if you want to keep your immune system in tip top working order. Try incorporating more nuts, shellfish, low-fat dairy, poultry and turmeric into your diet to up your intake of these vital nutrients.
In addition to our Wellmune® Blend, LYMA also contains a scientifically dosed 2,000 i.u. of Vitamin D3 which plays a fundamental role in immune response by regulating immune cell function and moderating their proliferation.
If you’re looking for a powerful way to boost your immune system in a safe, natural and sustainable way, to improve your overall health, and to feel your absolute best, then the all-in-one LYMA supplement is your answer.
